I know you have them, too: those clients who whenever you see an email or voicemail from them, or see them enter your store, you immediately want to hear what they have to say. Those customers that brighten your day.

Have you made it a goal to invite more of these people into your business cycle? People who truly “get it,” who really appreciate what you’re doing for them? From first introducing yourself to your ideal client, to remaining in contact because they love what you create, to sealing the deal, it is possible to have repeat success in this process.

If you’re interested in creating a system for this, get in touch. As always, I would love to help you out.


Maybe it’s a trip to the market near your work for that special, healthy lunch. Or taking a long, brisk walk around the neighborhood to see all of the flowers in bloom.

Or maybe it’s that trip to the park with your child when you get to experience the world through their eyes. Every day can be brightened in some way.

Do you need more buffer time in your schedule in order to let life happen? Or would it be more effective to pencil these treats in ahead of time, and allow yourself to be surprised with them later?


“My wish for you is that you continue. Continue to be who and how you are, to astonish a mean world with your acts of kindness. Continue to allow humor to lighten the burden of your tender heart.”

― Maya Angelou


What is one thing you can plan into your day tomorrow to brighten it up a bit? Think of something you can do in an hour, but don’t limit yourself if you don’t need to (spontaneous road trip, anyone?).
