2022 was quite the rollercoaster year! Earlier this year I was still scrambling to keep up with the enormous rush of business from 2021. I was admittedly overcommitted earlier this year, but loved every minute of working with clients, teaching and industry outreach. Then everything seemed to come to a halt this summer. As a self-employed professional slowdowns in our industry always make me nervous, but this year I embraced the time to slow down, take care of myself, recover from a bit of burnout and reconnect with myself and others.
This was a big year of stretching in my business, preparing for what’s next. I will celebrate 25 years in 2023 and am gearing up for a few shifts, or rather expansions, in my business. I’ll be opening to support more cabinet orders within the industry and begin offering consulting services to interior designers.
At the end of the year I often journal about all the amazing experiences and accomplishments from the year that I am grateful for and proud of myself for. Starting in 2023 I’m going to start a new practice of filling an empty jar weekly of those things and then on New Year's Eve pull them out to read all the wonderful things that 2023 brought.
Thank you to all my clients this year and many many industry friends.
Cheers! Welcome 2023
