I was completely re-inspired by what Donna Maria said to pick up and start sending newsletters again. I’ve let it slide, but she made me realize how valuable they can be . . . and how easy, really. Thank you Andreea!

This was so informative, and made me realize how lacking I am in systems with my business. Especially with the holiday season coming up, I need to be much more strategic about how I spend my time with my jewelry business an creating systems for helping me to manage everything. Thanks!
