Mid-Year Check-In

One year ago, on June 1st, I said goodbye to my long time business, Topps Salon Day Spa, to explore new pastures. Wow, what a year it has been!

How long has it been since you have made a major or minor personal or business change or challenge for yourself?

As I reflect on this past year I can see how important it was for me to make this change with a team of experts and the help of family and friends.

My daughter, and my then new Administrative Assistant Katey Schenk, helped me to transfer all of my client appointments and client information to my new booking system.  Katey has continued to work with me quietly, behind the scenes, as my marvelous editor for my newsletters and blog; I can highly recommend her as a fabulous administrative assistant.  Katey introduced me to Rita Troyer, who created my fabulous new graphics, and I highly recommend her as well.

Also, throughout the past year I worked with my Coach, Toni Littlestone, to stay focused on my new work vision path.  These are just a few of the people that were and are on my team today.

We are half way through 2013, and this is a good time to do a mid-year review of where you are with your business, personal life, and/or image.

I recently did this with Katey for my consulting business, Suzanne Van Houten, Runs Businesses With Scissors, and we have created some new packages to fit the needs of the various clients I have and wish to continue to attract.

What is on your list for the second half of 2013?  Do you need a little coachng to help you along?    Are you just getting started, need a tune up, or are you ready to make a big decision?    Believe me, I am your "app" for that!  And if I am not the right person I may know someone who is?

Let’s keep in touch!

Oh yes,  I wanted to share with you how much fun I had with my niece when she visited this past month.  To enjoy the fabulous Bay Area through the eyes of a young lady was a joy.

And of course, to gain great auntie points, I gave her first highlights and added layers to her lovely locks.
