This weekend I had the chance to meet one of my clients… she’s a member of The Spark Lounge and her name is Cassia Marina. (Check out her site, and give her a follow on Instagram, she’s a pro when it comes to Branding and Graphic Design.) Not only do I adore her because she is incredibly driven and hard-working, she also offers insane value to her clients and she’s 100% dedicated to being her best self and living her best life. She’s a fighter, and her spirit is one that can’t be broken.
The cool thing about her is that SHE LIVES IN TRINIDAD, only a few hours away. So when I found myself venturing into her neck of the woods, I thought I might as well give her a shout and see if she’d be able to meet, even if for only 20 minutes. I sent her a message via Instagram, and next thing I knew, there we were, together, sharing stories, over a plate of quesadillas.
Meeting her in person made me realize how very little *in-person, offline time* I have spent with my clients, and how easy it is to forget just how much of a positive impact your products and services are having on people’s lives. Meeting Cassia in person filled me with love and gratitude for the work we’re doing together in The Spark Lounge and the positive changes it’s having in her life and therefore in the lives of those around her too.
And so I wanted to write this blog post to remind you that the work you do in the world does not only positively affect your clients lives, but the lives of those who interact with your clients, too.
Because it’s all a ripple effect right? What a sweet reminder.
So today I’m sitting here in my office, Sunday evening, about to start a brand new week of this brand new month, and I’m feeling so incredibly grateful for having the opportunity to meet Cassia, for the ability to make a difference in people’s lives, and for getting to do what I love and get paid for it.
What a blessing.
Now it’s your turn: set your timer for 5 short minutes and bask in gratitude for the impact you have on the people in your life (your family, your friends, your clients). YOU ARE POWERFUL. We all are. And the more we relish in it, the more we can use it for good.
