Where are they now? An Unofficial InFlight Flyer Report {Sonya McCllough}

It's been more than four years since we gathered in this online space for an around the clock business plan creation . So, I thought I would update you as to the status of the then Creative Biz Marathon Team. We are all still connected in some shape, form or fashion online and thankfully we are all still in flight! I can not begin to share with you what all has occurred in each life. But I know, without a doubt that we've all been on an adventure of wills because that is exactly what life is all about.
As for me, this week I am process of completing a Small Business Master Mind Class at my Bank and next week, we start the 2.0 version of the very same class. To have your banker as a life coach is no thing but a gift and I a thankful beyond measure. So, let's catch up with the original five creative biz flyers ... click on the links below to discover something new about ...

Laura: Finding My Style on Canvas

Hi Creative Biz Marathoners! I'm checking in to share an update on finding my creative style. It's been nearly a year since I started my art lessons with the lovely Kelly Thiel.  For the past few months, I've been art journaling and practicing as much as I can.  Painting is still new to "art" has always been graphic design and jewelry making.  Like many other creatives, I felt called to sketching and painting.  I'm really, truly enjoying the ride, as Elizabeth would say.

Here's a sneak peek at one of my recent paintings.

Sonya: Are we there yet ... ANYWAY

This song was on the radio as we got into the car ... to say goodbuy to Sanbrinia ... my good and new friend from the Congo ...

I was super sad to see her go ... but I knew in my heart ... at this very moment ... this was the only means of a true escape ... so
YES ... I will dream ANYway
Yes ... I will pray ANYway
Yes ... I will love ANYway

In my mind ... but yet to fall on paper ... I've made some adjustments to my Creative Biz Plan to include a new assignment ... Women's Ministry Cordorniator at my Church. This has been an unspoken dream of mine for many years and I Thank my Father for this opportunity! We are crafting coffee cans for our Sick & Shut Ins and a Love Thy neighbor project! I'm so excited to see just what my GOD can do with a recycled coffee can!

Sonya: thoughts on the first quarter

The first quarter is almost over. The calendar announces the arrival of Spring. Trees are blooming in Tennessee. But hold on to your seed packets, cause it's time to plant spring bulbs not seeds.

It's time to tally your first quarter results ...

It's time to note the results ...

It's time to work the old spread sheets ... adjust your numbers ... REVISE the plan ...  and anything else that needs adjusting, cause we're just in one quarter and the best is yet to come ... soon and very soon ... you'll be scattering seeds for blossoms in May.

I shared the outside of my game board HERE. This is the inside ... the green dots represents, my photography and video or shall I just say shooting pictures. Shooting pictures and videos allows me to communicate with any and everyone. That's why the green dot ... dominates the game board. So, I'm wondering what dominates your creative biz game. Let us all know in the comments.
