If you’re like me, you might not be a huge fan of New Year’s resolutions. They seem to fizzle out all too quickly and only leave you feeling a tad bit guilty. Instead, I prefer focusing on personal growth year-round—embracing the elements that enhance my life and discarding those which don’t.
Yet, there is a poignant air of reflection that accompanies this time of year, and recently, it’s led me to contemplate the future of Savoir Faire and the evolution it might shape up to be.
These thoughtful reflections were amplified during a conversation with a close friend. She reiterated four aspects she identified with me: always learning, always inspired, always empowered and always accountable. These striking words resonated deeply, not just as reflections of my persona but as pillars I envisioned for Savoir Faire. They serve as valuable promises—ones we uphold within our business operations and endeavors with clients.
In my quest for growth, one thing remains consistent—I’m incessantly intrigued by “What’s next?” At Savoir Faire, we keep our fingers on the pulse of the latest in marketing, public relations and social media. Plus, we’re always evaluating the work we do for clients so we’re learning from our own work – what works and what doesn’t.
Our pursuit of inspiration is tireless, and we believe it can emerge from the most unexpected corners. Something you glean in one area could spark innovation in another. My friend noticed that this excitement radiates in my interactions as I share the potential of what I’ve learned. Where I used to go to big industry conferences, now I take online trainings. One of them led me to launch a podcast!
One trait of mine which consistently resonates is that I’m not an “ask permission” kind of person. I believe in forging ahead with decisions that feel right in my gut.
This does not mean I avoid responsibility. The mirror side of empowerment is being accountable. Whatever the outcome of my decisions, I take full responsibility for them.
Now that you have a glimpse into my mindset, let’s talk about how these aspects can help you, a small business owner. When we collaborate, I hope these principles shape your experience with us. While you don’t necessarily need to delve into the nuts and bolts of content marketing or SEO, I want you to grasp how our tactics will affect your business and empower you to leverage these strategies.
Our collaboration should be an endless cycle of mutual inspiration, stretching each other’s boundaries to get the best results. I assure you; I might be an “action-result” person, but I respect the trust you put in us. Understanding how everything works might not be your forte or interest; letting go of the tiny details and investing trust in us allows us to deliver the best results for your business. In reciprocity, I promise to equip you with the needed resources—information, explanations, reports or coaching—to run and grow your business.
Further, I’ll be counting on you to fulfill your part of the deal. Success demands accountability from both ends. I believe plans and strategies don’t fail; the hiccup arises when people falter in implementing them – but don’t worry! I’m here to support you. If we both stay accountable, we’ll ensure the effectiveness of our strategies, leading you and your business to reap the benefits.
