I had a fabulous trip to California this past week. It was filled with learning important new strategies for my business, sharing valuable information, coaching inspiring and motivated business owners, and reconnecting with Southern California.
I lived there for four years after college and really enjoyed that time there. Many years later, my perspective is quite different. I have a thirst for different ways of living, a desire to be with family (I have a whole contingent of family in Los Angeles) and of course, appreciate the warmth and sunshine.
Visiting Santa Barbara is a whole other experience. It’s smaller, more contained, and while populated by the rich and famous, it’s more secluded and private. LA is so OUT there, Santa Barbara creatively contains its power. But there is nothing like driving alongside the Pacific Ocean on my way north.
Although this trip was unexpected, I feel that the experience confirmed my sense that it’s time to see more of the world. It appears as though there will be more letting go of the old, and launching some new beginnings for me. Can’t wait to see what unfolds, for me, my business and my friends, clients, colleagues.
