First, how did it get to be January 31, 2018!?! It doesn’t seem possible, but I will say it has been a great month.
Sword Lily Marketing officially launched January 3, I have moved into my new office in my husband’s building, applied for and received the LLC, got a business license, created several great partnerships and the biggest of them all - began working with five wonderful clients in a broad range of business. This doesn’t even begin to touch all the calls I have made, businesses I have walked into and reintroduced myself (or made sure they knew I wasn’t the chamber lady anymore). It has been a whirlwind month – and not at all what I expected.
Isn’t that the way it always works? We plan but God decides our path.
My intentions for this month were to: finish out my website in great detail, put together all my own marketing materials, read the stack of white papers and material from other companies about the best practices for everything, but God knew what I needed this month – people & collaboration. And that is exactly what He brought me. I have had some of the best conversations, met or was reacquainted with great people, and rediscovered how much I love the small businesses and organizations in Sumter and the surrounding areas.
So, I am the cobbler’s kids with no shoes… or the marketing professional without materials and a website that says -Coming in January. Well folks we most certainly did come in January – and maybe tonight I can work on the website and at least on February 1, it will not say coming in January.
Thank you to everyone for your support, referrals and just general prayers or atta’ boys. I genuinely appreciate each and everyone and ask that they keep coming.
