My firm @abeldesigngroup won a design award for this project recently. Gorgeous, isn’t it? 😍 Part of my job as marketing director is trying to rack up us as many award wins as possible. But to get a win, you have to have a project that is 💯. To land and design a project of this caliber takes a combination of time - years even - and the following: a client has to know you, like you, and trust you. Here’s what that means - a client has to know of you - i.e. - heard of you and your reputation (and it needs to be positive), the client has to like you - you have to build a rapport, and the client has to trust you. If a client trusts you with something small, knock it out of the park. That small thing can grow into something bigger. Don’t lament that it’s not bigger, or overstep boundaries because you want more, or half ass it. Do what was asked exceedingly well. Trust is built over time. Know you. Like you. Trust you. You have to find the right fit of people to work with and to work for. #getunstuck #inspiration #motivation #businessdevelopment #business #businessgoals #design #designlife #gorgeousspaces #travel #tourist #wanderlust #wanderlusters #regram #abeldesigngroup #designlife #interiors #interiorstruly #eventspace #bizgrowth #businessmind #corporateevents #corporateinteriors #avantgarde #eventspaces #interiordesign #marketingdirector ...

It is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring, who reaps a harvest in the Autumn. B.C. Forbes.

Some days go like this - the A/C goes out, the city hasn’t processed your paid speeding ticket yet, so now there’s a warrant out for your arrest, and to top it off, unbeknownst to you, moths have snacked on the sweater you chose to wear to work. No one notices the holes in the sweater, and you wonder what else people haven’t noticed about you...how an imposter has been in their midst all this time...Between the skeletons in the closet that feel like back seat drivers and the anxiety-inducing butterflies in the stomach ...oy...it’s been a good run...time to quit while it at least it looks like you have it together. 😂 And now it’s time to take a step back and breathe - when life feels like it’s dragging you along by the sleeve of your moth-eaten sweater, invoke the power of CHOICE. Choice puts you in front of your thoughts and actions - so that one or three bad incidents don’t snowball into a decision to quickly pack up and change your name 😂. Choice can bring peace, innovation, laughter...an abundance of remedies for life’s curve balls. #inspiration #motivation #getunstuck #choice #oy #spooky #spookyseason #skeletons #travel #tourist #wanderlust #wanderlusters #houston #whiteoakmusichall #instagramvideos #vintage #rocktoberfest #anthropologie #vintageclothing #curveball #selfhelp #lifeisbeautiful #skeletonsofinstagram ...

My first summer in Idaho, I went from fancy job, fancy condo on the lake to...no job and living in a friend’s spare bedroom that was the size of a closet. (She used it as closet before I moved in.) Fitting that the girl that once had a 6000lb closet was now living in one. 😂 And that summer, with nothing, I couldn’t have been more content. I finally understood that my self worth wasn’t tied to any of the material things mentioned above. 1. Understanding self worth is a must 2. Understating motivation is another must. I often wrestle with my ambition. And what I have determined is this - when used to serve my God given purpose(s) and well, God - YES! When my motivation is to to earn my self-worth, approval, etc...NO! This is a quote from The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck (The novel beautifully tells the tale of a poor family from Oklahoma seeking work out West, and the struggles that ensue.) “If he needs a million acres to make him feel rich, seems to me he needs it 'cause he feels awful poor inside hisself, and if he's poor in hisself, there ain't no million acres gonna make him feel rich, an' maybe he's disappointed that nothin' he can do 'll make him feel rich.” How many acres do you need to feel rich? #getunstuck #motivation #inspiration #motivation #idahome #grapesofwrath #pnw #alpacas #pacificnorthwest #pacificnorthwestisbest #sandpoint #idaho #idahogram #idahoexplored #scenic #countryside #sandpointidaho #pnwonderland #idaholove #visitidaho ...
