“Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence.” – Lu Xun — Pen name of Zhou Shuren, 20th Century Chinese writer and essayist

Can you believe it? We're almost to November.

What will 2022 bring for you? Have you started thinking about your 2022 goals?

In the newsletter a few weeks ago, I shared about how future planning has become harder with increased uncertainty during COVID. 

What could help you plan? Start today!

What would it feel like to block off some time NOW on a day in November/December to take a mini-retreat for your career and business?


You could set goals, think about the gaps you need to address to get there, and spend some time researching strategies to fill those gaps.

You know, the stuff we are always encouraging clients to do.

Hmmm... watch your email, now my wheels are turning. Would you be interested in a "virtual co-working" time to work on your goals?

Reply and let me know and I'll put it on the calendar for our communities!

Already on the calendar is Career Jam -- an opportunity to learn and discuss the new and the next in careers and what that means for you. I look forward to seeing you there.
