Hi, Everyone!

Still on very light keyboard duty, so if you have sent an email in the last week, and have not heard from me - bear with me, I am trying to be smart for a change and give my wrists a break ;-) I WILL be caught up soon, I promise!

As 2020 winds down, I have to admit that I will look back on it with very mixed feelings. Obviously, 2020 was not a good year for so many and in so many different ways - yet for many of us, our businesses grew, we forged new friendships and new partnerships, and 2020 turned from "what do I do?" to "We DID this!!"

I honestly had no idea what to expect business-wise this year, I was heading into new and uncharted territory, and walking away from an industry that I was deeply entrenched in for almost 30 years - one that had treated me very well financially, but was incredibly stressful and I was simply beyond burned out. Scary? Hell, yeah!

The biggest surprise for me - other than learning that a facemask would become my most essential 'fashion' accessory for the year - was the amazing emergence of the Thursday MasterMind Group - now affectionately and appropriately re-named the 'Kitchen Sink Mastermind', because we have been known to discuss everything from our kitty cats to the care and feeding of pet jellyfish (did you know those little tentacles can grow back?).

And oh, yeah - we did some business this year, putting on 2 giveaway events, one paid bundle, two raffle events with oodles of prizes and an Etsy holiday promotion (one more day left - see below!!) And all of this in the second half of the year, because we thought it might be fun and well, why not???

We grew our lists - in some cases from ZERO to HUNDREDS!! We made our first affiliate sales, opened our first Etsy stores and created our first products. But most importantly, we learned that we really CAN do all of this stuff, that it is not magic, it is just about taking action, and that action is more important than perfection!!! Action creates revenue and perfection?? Usually, it just creates stress....

If you have not had the pleasure of experiencing the Kitchen Sink Mastermind - Zoom details are in the member area, and the next session is 3:00 PM EST, January 7, 2021. It does not matter your level of experience or expertise - or the lack of same! - everyone is welcome. We work together as a group to help all succeed.

We have some BIG changes coming up too - moving to a dedicated site with a full community so that we can network and promote our businesses more effectively. If all goes well, the new site will be ready for unveiling by our next Zoom!!

And for those of you that lived through the Troll adventure - we have the ability to permanently ban Trolls from the community!!

To everyone in the Kitchen Sink Mastermind - what an amazing group you are!! Talented, driven, and so very very generous, I feel so very privileged to be a part of your lives, and to have you all in mine. This has truly been the shining light of the year !! I can't wait to see what we can accomplish in 2021!!
