I'm sitting cuddled up in bed with my puppies at my feet, trying to beat this nasty cold that's been going around. I hate sitting still and it's hard for me to just relax when I know there are plenty of things to get done, but like I tell my clients "it's important to take some 'me' time". Laying in bed and relaxing has really allowed me to slow down and do some thinking. It's allowed me to take some time and realize how wonderful things are and how truly, truly blessed I am.
Our business is not large, but it is growing. Each month there are a handful of new women that we welcome to the iAM family and it is such an amazing thing because I know they will most likely become like family to me. What got me thinking was just laying here in bed, I got multiple text messages from various clients telling me about goals they reached, what workouts they did today, what their plans are. I get messages from clients throughout the day sometimes just saying hi! I have gotten invited to Christmas parties, received Christmas cards, thank you notes and hugs when I randomly run into them. Most were at my wedding. I AM SO BLESSED. Starting this business I thought I would be training people and teaching them about nutrition. I had no clue how many friends I would make along the way. And when I say friends I mean good friends that I know I could come to if I ever needed anything and viceversa. How lucky am I that I get to go to work everyday and hang out with my friends and help them reach their goals?
Although starting this business has been scary and sometimes stressful I would not trade it for anything. I am so lucky to have the opportunity to be a part of these women's journeys. They allow me into their lives and trust that I can help them with what is going on. I thank each and every one of them for that.
It is so exciting for me to see this business grow because I can see all the friendships that will happen. I see all of the obstacles we will tackle together, the laughs we will have and the goals we will reach. I am so proud of everyone for putting their mind to what they want. I am so proud of all the small goals they are reaching along the way. Thank you guys for putting your trust in me and helping this business grow!
