One Year Anniversary

Welcome to the 52nd edition of From V to You, a personal letter from me to you each week where I take you behind-the-scenes of my own business + brand-building efforts so you can grow your business too! If you’ve missed my previous letters, you can always read them here.


Happy Sunday!

I cannot believe this is my 52nd letter to you! An entire year’s worth of weekly letter writing! I teared up reading my very first letter to you this morning. 

I wrote it during a very pivotal moment in both my personal and professional life.

I had just sold my five-year-old digital marketing agency.

I subleased my beloved office to another tenant.

I was no longer working side-by-side with my husband in the same business anymore (deciding to be life partners and not business partners saved our marriage truthfully).

I was closing a very long chapter in my life and starting a new one that both scared and excited me. But I had to…I was so burned out!

For the first three years of my agency, I was still working full-time for my corporate employer. I also started the business five months after having my first baby, and then I had another baby two years later.

Two babies, breastfeeding and pumping in airplane stalls, one demanding side hustle, full-time corporate employment, several employees in both jobs, working with your husband, buying & renovating a total 1960s fixer-upper while we lived with my parents…

Looking back, I don’t know how I did it. I don’t know how I made it through.

All I know is I did.

I’ve gone through one hell of a refiner’s fire, and it has made me the person I am today.

This virus has made all of us pivot yet again this year.

It has prompted quite a bit of soul searching.

It has refined me once again.

Everything has changed, and yet, reading that first letter, I realized my core, my conviction, my why hasn’t changed.

In fact, let me conclude this letter just as I did in my first letter. The words are still true today as they were then. I still haven’t “made it” but I am still valiantly on the path to becoming the best me I can be.

“And I’m going to show you how because I’m going to do it.

I feel a calling to do this.

I feel like the knowledge and experience I’ve gained is supposed to help the you who wants more but doesn’t know how.

The you who gets bursts of inspiration but falls short in execution.

And each week I’m going to let you in on everything I’m doing, learning, tripping on, succeeding at, etc. I don’t have all the answers, but I know my vision, and I’m going to choose to…

Work from my vision, not towards my vision

There is seriously so much more to come and share, but I’ll end this week’s letter here. Please remember:

Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, the opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.” – Tony Robbins

Until next Sunday”
