Unexpected Opportunities

September 10, 2009

One day last week I had a rare occasion in the life of being a busy woman entrepreneur when an unexpected opportunity to sit peacefully in an amazingly beautiful environment was cast upon me. After a scheduled business meeting, I had an opportunity to sit in the midst of the recreated gardens of Giverny at Mirbeau Inn and Spa ( in Skaneateles and soak up inspiration and wisdom from an amazing woman entrepreneur. My intense morning of work turned to calm as the sounds of the waterfall, the tranquility of the gardens, and the peacefulness in the air enveloped us as we shared our entrepreneurial goals with each other. Sometimes in the most frantic days, peace can be found. 
September is the month when the business world gets back on track. Networking events, fundraisers, and corporate functions fill the calendar.  Getting back to “business” can be overwhelming after a leisurely summer schedule due to the pace of a more relaxed Central New York environment. So if you find yourself overwhelmed with details, overextended on project deadlines and feeling behind in your work, realize that sometimes an hour of peace and calm in the middle of the day can change your outlook setting a more productive pace for the rest of the afternoon and delivering a pleasant blessing to your spirit.
