Publisher’s Letter | January 2014

I built a vision board and it is posted right above my desk so that every day I see and meditate on my business and personal goals.

Welcome 2014! Here we go again. It is that time of year when we make our new year’s resolutions, or has that gone by the wayside now that smart technology seems to run the show. I say that with tongue in cheek, because I am not that enthralled with these electronic gadgets that are supposed to keep us more up-to-speed and “social.” No, I am not a Bah-hum-burger. I am a realist. And yes, when it comes to business I am all for email, telephones and “LinkedIn” to keep in touch with my clients and my vendors.  When it comes to family, friends and my personal goals, I like to use old fashion methods. For one, the telephone: what a novel invention. However today, more people use it like Morse code instead of engaging their vocal cords.

I apologize for the long soliloquy, however in completing my new year’s resolution project I used the good old-fashioned method: scissors, glue, poster board, magic markers and a cup of hot cocoa. You guessed it, I built a vision board and it is posted right above my desk so that every day I see and meditate on my business and personal goals.

Happy New Year to all of you, and it is my wish that you honor all of the commitments you have made to yourself and to your business partners. Integrity is a human quality that should not be taken for granted or lost; integrity and being true to your word goes a long way in both personal and business relationships. What’s on your 2014 resolution list?

Best in Health and Happiness,

Dawn Gowery
