Wow, What a Year!
This year will definitely go down in history and not so much in the positive sense. We've all experienced a roller coaster of emotions, setbacks and losses. The only way to get through it all is to look to the future. I mean, we can only go up from here (at least, we can hope so). Okay, got that part out of the way, now let's talk business.
As I mentioned in the previous blog post, the second half of the year has been amazing for my business. We've grown, gained new clients and generated more income. I cannot express how happy and proud I am of Twelve31 Media. In November, I was quoted in The Wall Street Journal. If that isn't the icing on the cake, I don't know what is. You can read the article (may have to subscribe) by clicking here. Without further ado, I'd like to share some amazing insights and recent stats regarding my clients.

This year has taught me a lot. Even when things are going well, you should always prepare for the inevitable. You never know what the world has in store and that's why it's so important to think ahead, learn how to pivot, and keep your eye on the prize. I've have some great ideas for 2021 that really focus on supporting and helping small businesses. They need our help now more than ever. Here are some quick tips to show your support - especially during the holiday season.
· Shop small. Shop local.
· Tip. Tip. Tip.
· Leave positive online reviews for your favorite local restaurants and shops.
· Like and follow your favorite local brands and businesses on social media.
These simple tasks can really help our favorite places keep their doors open. You're contributing to the success of your local economy, which allows your home to grow and flourish.
I hope you find peace this holiday season in the unforgettable year of 2020. From my family to yours, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! 🍾🥂
