It is hard to believe that five years ago, I moved to Tallahassee, decided to create my own company, and here I am still hanging in there. Life in the US has changed so much in five years - we have a new President, the economy has declined, natural disasters have occured more times than we would like to count, and most recently our Gulf of Mexico was significantly impacted by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Even with all of these negative things, I continue to see the positive things in life. Within the last two years I had two life changing moments - the first the opportunity to work on the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition in Tallahassee and soon after a trip to Ethiopia that shaped my future and the reason I get up each morning. Most recently I have been working on another special project, Plant a Fish, that focuses on education, empowerment and restoration of the oceans. While I've always appreciated the ocean and the life that lives there, the oil spill has brought a new understanding and appreciation to why we must all protect this natural resource for future generations.
This is my first real try at blogging. I've always been a Facebook and now Twitter fan, some say I'm a little obsessed with tweeting. So, we will see how I do with updating the blog on my new website. Today marks the beginning of so many new things.
Five years after forming JKR Consulting, I am launching a new look on the website, blogging for the first time, and expanding our horizons to include different types of clients and projects. I promise this will be an interesting ride if you decide to get on board. My life has never been the "normal" that so many of my friends experience but I promise it will be exciting. So, here we go - be sure to check out my blog "What's Happening Here & There" and I will do my best to keep you informed about the world's happenings and entertained with the happenings in my own life and business.
