April marks my entry into a new decade of life – my 40’s. I entered my 30’s with ease but, I’ll be honest, that 40 doesn’t feel as breezy to me. My mother keeps reminding me that the 40’s were her favorite years however during that decade, my sister, brother and I were all teenagers, so either her memory has really faded or she has great tips to share with me.
Along with my mother’s reassurance, biblical references show that God brings goodness and miracles after a forty year period – and if I’m being truthful, periods of my 30’s were ROUGH – so I’m believing, almost clinging to this promise.
Before I joined CHAR Co, I served as a marketing director of a regional orthopedic practice. One of the surgeons referred to his senior patients – not as older but as more experienced. I loved that reference because certain lessons can only be learned through experience.
As I prepare to say goodbye to my 30’s, I’m reflecting on my business experiences from the past 20 years. Perhaps you can relate to all or a few of them – and it is my hope that you will also learn from them.
Friends, let’s agree together that the best is yet to come, not just for me but for all of us as we complete life chapters, big projects or start a new business adventure. I’d love to hear any life lessons you have from your business experiences. Like my favorite, majestic Colorado tree – we need each other to make an impact and make our world beautiful.
