Why I Burned All My Appreciation Letters.

I have a jar where I keep notes of appreciation from clients, colleagues, and organizations. At the end of 2022, it was so full that I couldn’t fit one more in.

I was clinging to them. Hoarding appreciation. With no room to let more in.

And while I logically understand that gratitude is infinite and a crammed jar of notes will not prevent more from flowing in, I felt the need to (both literally and symbolically) create space for more.

So I let them all go. I burned them to ashes, keeping only one note.

Now I’m looking around for other things I can let go of, to make space for more ease, flow and gratitude.

What else am I clinging to and hoarding, embodying the belief that more may not be on the way?

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.
