Finding Your "Word" in the Year Where There Are No Words

HELLO | TWELVE, JANUARY 2021

Happy Friday and welcome to nature's "fresh start" - January.  I love the feeling of the New Year, when our hearts and minds are fresh with hope for a reset, a new opportunity to make an impact on ourselves and others. 

My heart breaks that we find ourselves eight days into our fresh start and have already been forced with unthinkable shock and horror.  Yet all we can do is keep moving, keep putting one foot in front of the other, and keep putting our best out into the world.

5 Ways to Be More Strategic and Successful in 2021

The impact of 2020 will stay with us for the rest of our lives. It marks a critical inflection point of before and after. It is a year that blindsided many small-business owners.

We’ve seen new businesses birthed with success and others thriving amid chaos. We’ve seen neighborhood classics tragically lost, and others that struggle to survive day-to-day.

Do not become discouraged. The new year is an opportunity to rewrite the rules and stop settling for less in your business. It is the opportunity to cast a strategic vision that is different from the past and to create more success and growth in your business and your life.

Finding the Silver Lining in 2020

HELLO | TWELVE, DECEMBER 2020

Happy Friday and welcome to our last edition of 12lite in 2020!  When we wrote our New Years Resolutions back in January, none of us could have imagined how different our world would look only 12 months later.  What we thought was so important and possible became completely obsolete in a matter of moments.  As a daily meditator, something I have learned in my own practice is that what you focus on expands.  If we choose to find the silver lining, and we choose to focus on the good by giving it more attention than the bad, we find more good.  This past week, I asked the team to share their gratitude focused reflections for the year and we hope it brings you peace and comfort as you wind down this unforgettable year.

Gifts That Give Back

Gifts That Give Back
Contributed by our Team Member, Jessi

The social impact of American businesses has continued to garner increased attention in recent years. Individuals and organizations alike have continued to seek more and varied ways to reduce their carbon footprint, give back to communities, and overall become more socially conscious. This has probably never been more true than in 2020, a complicated and difficult year for many organizations.

At Delegate, we continue to strive to make a meaningful impact on our communities. This year, we launched the first-ever Delegate Scholarship, in which we granted 6 free months of administrative assistance to an organization making big waves in their communities. Giving back is also a hot topic among many current Delegate clients.
