Those of you who know me well know that this is my favorite month.
First of all, my birthday is in October, and despite being in the 40-something age range, I still enjoy celebrating it. Second, it is a beautiful time of year. Don’t get me wrong, I love summer, but the crispness of autumn on the East Coast is always a welcome reprieve after months of sweltering heat. Third, I have always enjoyed Halloween, especially once I had kids who could share their candy with me.
Two years ago, I added another celebration to this month – the anniversary of Cordelia Anderson Consulting. I officially began operating in October 2018, and it has been a fun ride ever since. I send my heartfelt thanks to all of my clients, past, present and future. Thanks for allowing me to help you tell your stories and make the world a better place – especially now, when your services are needed more than ever.
This fall feels different for a variety of reasons. COVID-19, the upcoming election, wildfires on the West Coast, and many other challenges fill our news cycles and cause us worry and concern. All I can say is that I hope you have the best October you can under the circumstances. And if you need to eat a Tootsie Roll or a piece of candy corn to feel better, I won’t judge. Better yet, I’ll join you.
