Can you guys believe that yesterday was Thanksgiving??
I couldn’t let Thanksgiving slip past without taking the time to express my gratitude to all of you.
I want to sincerely thank you for standing behind me as I make changes in my business. I’m thankful for the opportunity to grow and become myself more fully than ever before, and I can do that because I know you’ll grow with me.
I’ve known many of you since SophieZo began, and I cannot thank you enough for sticking with me through thick and thin. Whether you’re a client, a colleague, or just a great friend, I could not do this without you, and I am thankful for you every single day!
We all need a great support system, and I have been blessed to be surrounded by inspiring coaches, go-getters, forward-thinkers, and ass kickers! I am inspired by all of you, and my business gets better and better because of your outstanding ideas and endless encouragement. You give me the courage to make big changes and go after the things I truly want.
And of course, I have to talk about my family. I know I’m biased, but you guys – they are AMAZING. My husband might just be the most supportive guy on the planet. I am free to chase big dreams because I know he’s right behind me. He encourages me to think big, listens to endless amounts of brainstorming, and cheers me on every time I tackle a new challenge.
One of my life’s greatest gifts has been watching my children become the people they are today. My son is one of the best men I know. He’s smart and driven, and he has a heart of gold. He’s a devoted husband to Syra, and now he’s proven that he’s an outstanding father!
That’s right, folks, this year was a banner year because I became a grandmother! Artemis Zollmann made his debut back in September, and I fall more in love with that cutie patootie every day! It’s been so much fun to watch Ty and Syra find their way as new parents. Syra is a wonderful mother – And now she’s back to work, being my right-hand woman, and I couldn’t do it without her. I’m having more fun at work than ever because this year my fabulous daughter, Maeve, joined the team as well!
Maeve is brilliant, creative, and passionate, and I’m lucky enough to have her on my team! How cool is that? Not only do I get to run a business that I adore, I get to do it alongside the two women I love and admire more than anyone else in the world!
And even though the three of us are obviously a dream team, we couldn’t do it alone. I round out my team of wonder women with my Digital Marketing Manager, Erika, and my copywriter, Cameron. These ladies work tirelessly to come up with some of the best concepts and content I’ve ever seen. Their creativity and dedication are essential to my business, and I can’t imagine doing this thing without them!
I truly feel like one of the luckiest people on earth, and I will have so much to be grateful for as we gather around the Thanksgiving table tomorrow.
I wish you and your loved ones a Thanksgiving filled with joy, laughter, and love – and some really great food! Thank you for making this year one of the best years yet. I look forward to all the wonderful things ahead!
