I would like to thank you for your readership of this blog.
I am a big believer in the fact that you have to open up some space in your life to give new things (things that you don’t even know exist yet) space to come in. But as a working mom, executive, entrepreneur, volunteer, board member, etc., it has been a while since there was space for anything new in my life.
Effective December 15th, 2011, I’ve closed my business, PEER Coaching Network. Not because I didn’t enjoy what I was doing, because I did – especially the people who I’ve had the honor of working with over the last 2 1/2 years.
Why? – because it has become clear to me that it is time to simplify my life, and focus my energies “elsewhere”, even if I don’t yet know exactly “where” that is. Like many people, I have looked forward for some time to retiring from the day-to-day obligations that running a business entail, and some personal changes have made it sensible to move toward that goal now, instead of in a couple of years from now.
Like many “retired” people, I still intend to work, but in a different way. Simplification, first – that’s hard work in and of itself. Then, we will see. I am sure the challenges will be interesting and the people fascinating. I’ll still have a few clients, and I know I will continue working in the non-profit sector. Travel? Writing? Back to school? We’ll have to wait and find out.
I don’t think of this as a major change, but as more of a course correction as I travel through my life. It’s not the first time I’ve made a shift, but it’s by far the biggest one.
So, I may see you here on these pages again, or I may not. Either way, I wish you luck in your own course of travel, and in any course corrections you decide to make along the way.
Since I write this on December 16th, 2011, I also wish you the very best of holiday seasons. And Peace on Earth, and goodwill towards all.
