December is always a busy month and like most of you my business
and personal life shift into overdrive as I begin celebrating
the holiday season. This year is no exception. In fact, the pace
felt even more daunting when I took a two-week personal leave
of absence from my business to tend to family after experiencing
the death of my beloved grandmother two days before Thanksgiving.
a result, I am behind in everything by about two weeks. This month
I had to evaluate and prioritize my options carefully including
whether to send out a December newsletter. Should I send the newsletter
out late or let the year go by without thanking all of you for
the impact that you have had on me personally and professionally?
Those of you who know me personally know that it is not in my
nature to let an opportunity like this go by.
So, I’ll keep it short and sweet. I want to personally thank
each and every one of you, my faithful readers, for your support
during the past year. As a way to thank you, if there is something
that I may do personally to help you move your personal or professional
goals forward in 2006, please send me an email at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include 2006 Goals in the subject
line so that I will give your email top priority.
you have been pleased with the content of this newsletter during
the past year, perhaps you can help me too. One of my goals for
2006 is to grow my subscriber base. How can you help me? Please
share this newsletter with other women and men that you feel can
benefit from it. If you don’t feel comfortable forwarding
this newsletter perhaps you will consider sending me a testimonial
or a question that you’d like me to respond to. I love hearing
from my readers!
In closing, I wish you much peace, prosperity and success in the
coming new year. Here’s to a fabulous 2006!

What our clients are saying...
Outsourcing utilized Regina Barr's services for a workshop at
our Annual Billing & Payables Summit. Regina was able to achieve
full participation from the audience and make the workshop enjoyable.
She was thoroughly prepared and left our clients with resources
to expand upon the information gleaned at the workshop. As one
participant stated 'Regina engaged the audience and her presentation
was entertaining as well as educational.' Regina stayed on track
and her creativity allowed us to develop a workshop that tied
in with our annual theme. I would highly recommend Regina for
workshops or team building activities. It takes a special skill
to make people feel comfortable enough to participate, and learn
while having fun. Her professionalism and task-oriented internal
motivation will ensure success every time." -- Debra
