On October 1st, we (the family and I), relocated for our year in Manchester by the Sea, Massachusetts. The goal? To slow down. To be in nature. To spend more time as a family. To launch SMARTY in Boston. To be closer to where my husband regularly travels. The reasons go on…but what I’ve noticed about the transition is how much spaciousness has come into my life. Despite boxes and car delivery delays, living with my generous in-laws for a week longer than anticipated, sleeping on a mattress on the floor, children vs. time zones, suddenly there are more hours in the day. I’m not running hectic to meetings, trying to beat the clock to make it home on time for my nanny – rushing the kids from home to school to activity. This spaciousness has not only been personally pacifying, but amazing for business.
I can think!
I can dream up!
I can do short-term AND long-term planning for the company!
I can connect with Members!
I highly recommend the occasional change of venue….
Here are some snapshots of what we’ve been up to:
