"I wanted to let you know that I've recently entered the world of blog publishing, and in taking a closer look at your blog, I am overwhelmed with admiration for the level of dedication you put into it. It is a beautiful, informative, warm place to hang out. Additionally, now that you have Podcasts, I can feel Tranquil at home, with your voice guiding me in all sorts of centering lessons during my work day. Thanks for sharing your creative blessings!!"
receiving e-mails such as these help reinforce why i created the blog, the podcast, the studio, the clothing line, the trunk shows - anything i do creatively is to bring like-minded women together with a hope of empowering them and inspiring them along the way. since i never dreamed of running a business (as a psyche major who wanted to help others in crisis, i didn't even understand what business was), nor thought i was capable of such an endeavor, opening up my living room to strangers in the fall of 1999, unbeknownst to me at the time, was quite a bold risk. my hope is that through my creative endeavors, i can help others take bold risks that seem elusive. i truly believe that if this little girl from oklahoma with no business experience or education can create a tranquil space that serves so many washingtonians tranquility, YOU can do anything you desire, too!
thank you, meridith, for sharing your feedback. may we all continue to inspire each other to take steps bigger than we thought possible on our own!
