One Business Died. Another was born.
My 2020 so far...
Business death and birth... mine.
This is the web address where my 3rd business lived. It was created with a full heart, a desire to serve, a tremendous amount of love (and sweat... and hours) and it was the business that died during the COVID-19 crisis during 1st quarter (and into 2nd quarter) 2020.
"Loss of a business."
"Death of a business." I'm not the only one.
This one was uniquely mine in all the ways.
The birth, the learning curves and long life, and also the death.
I was a copywriter for beloved, local businesses for 7+ years. And I specialized in smaaallll businesses. Because they are the backbone of our community and so much of the economy.
I loved this work. It filled my heart to talk with owners, to translate the core business messaging into language that would attract the right clients to the business. I watched it again and again. I collaborated again and again. It was beautiful. Sustaining. Fulfilling. For years.
A long ebb... and not much flow
The year before the pandemic, I knew change was coming, and could feel the momentum and interest in my business wane... normal ebbs and flows, I thought. This had happened before.
But as time went on, it seemed to be a loooong ebb and not much flow. I looked at other things I was interested in at times. At other times, I just threw myself all the harder into the client work I had.
Surprising new interest, new energy
In 2019, I began to get interested in end-of-life, grief, and loss work. And true-to-my-nature, I began to read, research, train, and develop more skills - and heart - around these tough topics. I was called to this work in a similar way that I was called to my previous business endeavors.
At the end of 2019, I trained to become an end-of-life midwife, a.k.a. a death doula. During the Coronavirus and COVID19 pandemic, I trained and became a Grief Recovery Specialist®, and then immediately after, an Advanced Grief Recovery Specialist®. Transformation has been happening... and it will continue to happen.
It's all happening... a significant loss, and a new, uncertain venture
This is the old space. And this is also the new space.
This continues to be where I'll recreate a part of myself... the business, career, and service part.
My heart brought me here... and will help keep me going through all the gains and losses along the way.
Back to now... back to you
What I want to share, if you're going through the pain of grief and loss in your life is... even though my website isn't quite complete, you can begin to heal by identifying and completing the pain you (or your loved one) is experiencing.
These may be losses you've experienced either long ago or recently.
The wounds that time doesn't seem to be healing at all.
Let's talk about those... and whether or not you're ready to learn how to
let go of the pain in order to heal your heart.
