Preface: If you are new to Talking Story, Ho‘ohana „¢ is the monthly newsletter of Say Leadership Coaching, sent on the first of each month to our email subscribers. Talking Story is home to the Ho‘ohana „¢ online essay of each issue, and we explore more on the newsletter’s theme periodically through-out the rest of the month. The best way to sort out the Ho‘ohana „¢ posts from the others, is to click on the Talking Story category link named Monthly Ho‘ohana: they’ll appear from newest to oldest.
Our Ho‘ohana theme this month is called Ho‘olaule‘a, the Hawaiian word for Celebration.
What are we celebrating?
A One–Two punch of goodness: This month is the One-Year Anniversary of Talking Story, and the Two-Year Anniversary of Say Leadership Coaching (SLC). I am thrilled with how far we’ve come, I’m excited about what’s ahead, and I invite you to celebrate with us!
With both SLC and Talking Story I jumped in feet first with a little forethought, and a lot of impulsiveness. I now realize how incredibly lucky I was, though I prefer to say ‘blessed’ instead, for blessed is so much more accurate. In these past two years such abundance has been created, and this month we’ll be taking a look back at some of the highlights that brought us this far. You, my Ho‘ohana Community, have played a huge part in getting both SLC and Talking Story to where they are today, and we want to take every opportunity we can this month to say mahalo; thank you.
At the same time we want to give you a gift: A month-long look at your opportunities for entrepreneurship. Before you say, “Thanks, but I’m not interested in starting my own business,” let me explain that you don’t necessarily have to. I’ll explain why we think our gift is still one for each and every one of you, fledgling entrepreneur or not.
