Featured Article: New Beginnings in 2008
In case you've been wondering where your monthly newsletter from Eliminate Chaos has been for the past two months; you didn't miss a thing - because I haven't sent one.
Instead, I spent the last two months focusing on the roll-out of our new product line: Shelf Conversions by Eliminate Chaos, which we officially launched at the end of November.
I'll tell you more about it a bit later in this newsletter.
My favorite time of the year is Christmas. Ever since I was a child, I loved getting out the decorations and decorating the house. I always had my favorite ornaments I liked to hang on the tree. Christmas ornaments and Christmas decor are the two things I love to collect. Yes, I did say I collect these things - to me, it is what I treasure.
When January 1st arrives and it was time to take it all down, I hated to pack it up for another year but I was always excited for the New Year to be here. For me, the new year is a time for new beginnings and opportunities.
What will your new beginnings bring for you this year?
Perhaps you've decided this is your year to get organized? If so, now is the perfect time. Did you know that January is "National Get Organized Month?" Check out the "Get Organized" events happening around the country.
One of the new beginnings that will be happening at Eliminate Chaos in 2008 is that I will begin alternating the subjects for this newsletter, beginning with the February edition. One month I will share tips with you about how to be more productive and efficient at work and the following month, I will share tips with you for your home. I hope that you will enjoy all of the content we have in store for you this year and that you will forward our newsletter to anyone that you think would enjoy receiving this information.
Wishing you an Organized and Productive 2008 and success with all of your new beginnings.
