This was the note I sent out to folks on my email list after the big Thanksgiving dinner we had last night. If you missed it, make sure you are on my email list by subscribing in the box to the right.
As I enjoy the post-Thanksgiving festivities at my sister’s house (with my mom, stepmom, grandma, boyfriend, ex-husband, children and many friends of the family) I am hoping this email will help keep you from being sucked into the illusion that is Black Friday and perpetuating the consumer culture that has created a lack of sustainability for so many.

Without a doubt, no matter what business you are in, the single most valuable asset of your business is the list of people you maintain contact with on a regular basis, at least by email, and possibly by mail as well.
If you do not have a list, the time to start building your list is now. And that does not mean gathering the email addresses of everyone you know in Outlook and sending out mass emails using your bcc: function.

I used to think freedom was $40,000,000 in the bank. THEN, I would be free.
I used to think freedom was having my own show on television. THEN, I could say and do what I really wanted and I would be free.
I used to think freedom meant having a big team of people to support me so I didn’t have to do anything myself — from sending out an email to grocery shopping to cleaning my house — unless I could charge big money for it. When I didn’t have to do anything but what I was most handsomely paid for, THEN I would be free.
