I had my BIG 30th birthday this year! Woohoo! That was a blast! Not to mention buying another house and starting off of the HOA board almost immediately. What was I thinking? I also opened up a new play dates for adults location in Ft. Myers and it only took 6 months for me to realize that this wasn't going to be a successful place for me to have a second location. I closed that group in November. Maybe another location in the future... we'll see. Tampa/Clearwater is still thriving and I'm blessed with a great group.
My family life was stressful this year, but when isn't family stressful. If I could take one thing from this experience it would be to live your life for you and keep your family by your side. Not in front of you. You should be in front of the pack! That's the most detail that I will give on this one. Sorry folks.
Business... wow! Business is interesting! My full time job had a few stir ups some good and some not so much. With this I took a new approach on my job and how things need to be handled. If you need to cover your ass on a daily basis then do it on their time! Email everyone, don't always call. When in doubt include someone else in on the emails or conversation.
Now for personal business... this is AWESOME! Thanks to Linda Thompson-Brennan (my aunt) who showed me CCPRO it has changed my life. I'm moving forward and building a better way of living for myself and for the people around me. This has been such an incredible learning experience and it's great for anyone who wants a life of positive thinking and positivity in general. I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS BUSINESS.

This business has the potential to get so many people on the right track with their lives and with their businesses it would be great for anyone to have this knowledge.
Anyway, I suppose it's time to talk personal stuff now. This year has been challenging when it comes to relationships. Friends, boyfriends, girlfriends, family, everyone! I've come to realize that if you can try a new experience DO IT. If it hurts, shake it off. What did you learn from that experience? Are you mad at that person or yourself? What could you have done to make it a better experience? Those are the things I think about when I think about bad experiences with relationships. When it comes to men just know ahead of time that they won't make the right decision unless it's going to be good for them. Women are the same way, but we're just sneakier about it. Make your decisions wisely and be more selective. YES! I said it... MORE SELECTIVE!
I'm sure some of my friends are laughing at me right now for some of this stuff. Others are probably just thinking "what's so funny?" That's okay because maybe in 2011 you'll know me a little better and you'll get next years blog :) See you next year!
