Merry Christmas! I am thinking of you all today and wishing you peace through this holiday season as you embrace all that it represents. Christmas is a time to celebrate, rest, reflect, extend gratitude, and hold your family close. For many of us, our families are the motivation for our professional dedication, so this season, I encourage you to take some time to pause and embrace every moment with your family – whatever that means to you.
On today’s special episode of SmallBizChat, I share my appreciation for all that Christmas represents and brings. I express what this holiday means to me as a Christian and the importance of thanking God and remembering the reason for the season. I also highlight what Christmas looks like in my family, and what I wish for you as you reflect on your professional and personal highlights of 2019 and move into the new year.
“Struggles make you stronger. You can’t have a testimony without a test.”
