Client Appreciation

I am totally aware of what I should be sharing in social media marketing, but today I am breaking the rules. I am not focusing on me or how glorious my services are.

When I decided to fire up my business, Reliance Outsourcing, it was after I listened to the words of one person, a Virtual Assistant Coach. She said, “I serve others and I love my work.” It was a simple statement, but it sunk in as a conviction to me.

I am an encourager. I have four blogs published. Each blog steers toward a central point no-matter what my role is at that time (farmer, author, life coach, virtual assistant). When I am inspired, my fingers fly to the keyboard to share. To be able to encourage and assist people, to make their business lives less stressful, is incredibly satisfying to me. Enough about me, though, this is about others…you…my clients!

So, yes, I do have the best clients in the world. They have chosen me and I love to partner with them in today’s business world.

When I tell complete strangers, “We are all in this together. In this world. Helping each other. Taking care of our piece of the pie.” I mean that! The world goes ’round with collaboration!

So, I dedicate this day to my clients, whom I truly appreciate. You are the best!

National Be On Purpose Month

to-bali

National Be On Purpose Month fits right into my chain of thinking.

Many of us turn over a new leaf in January. We exercise, eat healthier, set new goals, and overall we feel energized to start a new year. So, why not fire it off with Be On Purpose Month?

When I saw the Be On Purpose title, it plopped me back down in the middle of a thought that has rolled around in my head for several months. Be real. Just be.

We are busy people. I am not sure what we are trying to accomplish when we barrel down the highway at break-neck speeds, while shouting angry obscenities at the person in front of us, who by the way, is cruising right at the speed limit. Or, we become irritated standing in the grocery store line because it might shave an extra 10 minutes off of our day. So, why not have someone hand-pick and bag your groceries so all you have to do is run into the store, or drive through a lane to pick the goods up? This will allow you to…well…be busier!

Living on purpose, in my estimation, goes being just being. Purpose is summed up in two definitions: the reason for which something is created, or someone’s intention or objective.

Logically, I have no intention of hurrying, or being busier. I embrace the intention to live my life the best that I can live it, not based on my circumstances, but based on who I am and what I was designed for. I am a wife, mother, business owner, grandmother, and a person that loves nature, reading, writing, and (shhh!) numbers (hence the bookkeeping). Where does being purposely busy fit in? Exactly. It does not.

Intentional living, being who we are, notice the word intentional (not just being).

Just be.

Scratch off being on purpose for one month. Be on purpose this year. Scratch that, be on purpose.

I am on it.
