As we approach the end of 2019, I’ve been reflecting on what an amazing year it has been. This year has been filled with unexpected blessings, incredible opportunities, and personal growth, but it all came about in a pretty unusual way! Earlier this year, I was let go by my major client. Honestly, it was my only client, and it definitely shook me up. I had spent all of my time and energy working diligently for this one client and it was suddenly gone. It could have been a tragedy, or the end of my business, but instead, it was an incredible gift.
Once I lost that client, I had to recalibrate and do some real soul searching to decide what I truly wanted my business to be. I knew I didn’t want to devote all my time to a single client and spend long, crazy hours doing work I didn’t particularly enjoy anymore. I wanted to work with a variety of business owners and use my expertise to help them shape the business of their dreams.
A VIP day with David Neagle and his team clarified my vision even further. With their expert coaching and guidance, I began to restructure my business model, map out pricing, and rework my message to build my business quickly and easily. I finally gained the clarity I needed to know who my ideal clients are, and the motivation to build the business and life I desired. That unexpected blessing of losing a client led me to where I am today. I have a thriving business, incredible support from David Neagle and his team, and an unbelievable vision for the future.
This year has had many personal blessings as well. I’ve had the opportunity to reconnect with dear friends that I haven’t seen since high school! My husband and I took the most fantastic trip to Universal Studios where we fully immersed ourselves in the magical world of Harry Potter and drank our weight in butterbeer! I got to attend the Art of Success Summit with David Neagle and around 300 like-minded business people, where I made new connections and renewed old ones. I am thankful for another year surrounded by the love and support of friends and family.
2019, with all its unexpected gifts, was an amazing year, but I’m already looking forward to 2020. Get ready to see lots more of SophieZo, because I’m making it my goal to put myself out there on videos, podcasts and interviews! I am going forward with a clear vision of who I am and what I want my business to be, and I’m thrilled that you’re along for the ride! We are going to accomplish great things in the year ahead, and we’re going to be busy- so rest up, enjoy the holidays with your loved ones, and get ready to take 2020 by storm!
