Unfiltered Reflections: A Rollercoaster of Thoughts and Insights

Working through all the feelings, I recorded this to capture some of the lessons I’m learning. Please forgive the meandering (my state of mind is not as incisive as usual) and the less-than stellar quality of the video… but I promise there are some important nuggets in here.

Founder Mary Cravets started Simply Get Clients because she saw small business owners complicating growing their businesses. Or falling victim to the "build it and they will come" myth. So she developed the simple structure to cut through all the noise of social media, "experts", online funnels, advertising and more to focus on the central problem of business owners: getting more clients. And you know what? There is NOT a one-size-fits-all solution.

    Thank you for taking the time to share this, Mary, and for your beautiful loving heart. This IS very helpful. I witness you living your values and always thinking of how others, whether clients, community, colleagues, friends or strangers, can benefit from your experiences and expertise. I’m so deeply sorry for this profound loss.

    Mary, thank you so very much for taking the time to share this. Though this was birthed out of something so tragic, it was so helpful and I appreciate you speaking about something so important for entrepreneurs/business owners to hear. I’m so sorry for your loss and pray for you and your family to feel some comfort in the midst of grief as well. There is absolutely room for both.

    I can only imagine how devastating this loss is, I’m so sorry for you, sending love and comfort vibes your way. And I’m hugging my mom tightly, counting my blessings (we work together 3 days a week) — thanks for the reminder about centering yourself and your business in your values, and preparing for the rough times now, and not then. I’m definitely going to do some self-reflection on what that would be for my business. Thank you for being open and loving even in your deepest grief.
