March is a great month to take a little extra time to think about the remarkable women in your life. My trifecta is my mother, sister and daughter. Women who have taught me to love, be courageous, and humble. Have you thanked🙏🏾 the important women in your life recently? Send a text, a card and/or tell them when you speak with them how they helped you. The end of the month is also the end of the first quarter of the year. Do you have a budget📒 in place for this year? Have you thought about your bank, financial planner, investments and whether they align with your values? This month we are including a new collection of providers for all that is Outside+🌲. Like last month think about those services and ask yourself, are any of them women, black, indigenous or LGBTQ owned. Are they socially responsible? Do the owners and the company values align with yours? Stay tuned for next month. We will be including socially responsible providers of products and services tailored to you in our About You+🙂 collection. PERSONAL VALUES ALIGNMENT WORK
