The Resource Tank has been my bread and butter for many years. It launched my speaking career, connected me with clients, and provided me a respected base to call my “business home”. I will forever be grateful.
Yes, that means what you think it might. The Resource Tank is quietly fading into the sunset, but this redhead is enthusiastically bursting into the limelight. In my world simplifying seems to always morph into new chaos.
My goal is to continue speaking, but my focus has evolved beyond leadership to include the reality of career ups and downs, and how every single thing that happens in your career matters. Everything Matters. In life, in business, in family. The little things, the big things, the things no one knows about but you. Everything. And this matters, it’s the end of an era for me in many ways.
And so, it’s with love, respect, and gratitude that I close one chapter in my life to open another. My newest venture 10,000 Beds, Inc. will launch on September 1st, 2015. If you’re reading this, you are one of the few in the know. (Lucky you!)
10,000 Beds is a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization working with partner treatment facilities across the United States to identify and award 10,000 scholarship treatment beds by 2020.
Our goal is to provide help through these donated scholarship beds to addicts who need help and want help, but can’t afford the cost of residential treatment. We have received overwhelming support and positive responses from everyone we’ve talked to about this effort…and we haven’t even launched!
10,000 Beds is a sister company to Helping Recovery, my primary marketing business. We work with clients who need treatment and facilities who can provide treatment and we put the two together. It’s an emotional, rewarding, all-encompassing work. And we are passionate about it.
Addiction has touched our family and I am certain it’s touched yours, or someone you know. If you ever need help finding the best treatment center for someone, we are the people to call. We are experts. We do this every day, all day. We care and we will do whatever we can to help. You can reach us at 801-875-2821 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Am I still available to speak? You bet! And I’ll still be crazy busy. I just won’t be working under the moniker of The Resource Tank. My office won’t change, my java mug won’t change, my desk won’t change, but my business name has changed.
So, I will bid TRT a fond farewell, and carefully tuck this blog in the cloud for safekeeping. Because as we all know, nothing ever really goes away anymore, it simply goes dormant and becomes an out of sight piece of our past.
Speaking to audiences about the power of change, the reality that everything matters, the experiences of life that mold great leaders, and working with people to help them rediscover a clean and sober life keeps me on a personal “high” every single day. I’m blessed, grateful and more excited than ever.
My career has been a roller coaster of awesome experiences. I wouldn’t change a thing. And that’s the message I need to deliver, I want to deliver, and that audiences love to hear. It’s all good, it all matters, and it all leads us to our ultimate calling and destiny.
So off I go…thanks again!
(Oh, and that whole “simplify” idea…it will never happen in my lifetime, but it IS my reoccurring daydream.)
And now. Adieu.
