On June 1st, 2012, All Inclusive Marketing will be celebrating our three year anniversary. It’s been an incredible journey and I wanted to share a few thoughts and thanks to some people who’ve made a difference to me along the way. I’d be lying to say it was easy. On the contrary – it was a huge challenge. I shed many tears, lost a lot of sleep, sacrificed time with my children and made many mistakes.

During the past three years, I had two babies, survived a recession, met some amazing people and finally found my footing in what my contribution to this industry can be. I know I have made some errors, especially with some relationships with people I deeply admire and respect, and will work to rebuild those relationships because they matter deeply to me.

But despite a few set backs, we’ve had incredible successes and I’m excited about the future. I love this industry and the people in it. I love that we can work from home, anywhere in the world. I love that families – husband and wife, father and daughter, mother and daughter, father and son, brothers and so on – can work together in something unique and rewarding. I love that strangers help each other. That competitors are considered respected colleagues. And that ultimately we are all fighting and working towards the same thing – freedom and the appreciation of life in one way or another.

I want to give a huge shout out to a few people who have helped me in one way or another over the last three years, whether you know it or not. Your kindness, generosity and compassion have made all the difference in the world to me, and I’m extremely grateful.

A big THANK YOU to the following people for helping me (whether in a big way or small way) learn who I want to be (and don’t want to be), what I can do, and where I want to go in this industry. I sincerely appreciate the passion you put into what you do which inspires me everyday.

Whether three years ago or yesterday, you guys have personally touched me in one way or another and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you’ve done for me over the past three years. I feel comfortable stepping back into being myself again, growing my relationships with each of you and others in the industry. I will continue to pay it forward.
Most importantly, a HUGE thank you to my husband, Iain Bundy, love of my life, father of my children and my trusted business partner for standing with me the entire way, for leading a team in an industry you didn’t know, and for being my rock when times got tough. You inspired me more than you will ever know and I’m grateful you are my partner in every way possible.
And now that the hardest part is over (I hope!), I am also looking forward to doing more of the things I love – helping others, spending time with family and friends, learning photography, begin in nature, and of course, contributing to the betterment of this industry that I love.
If there is anyone I forgot to thank, please post here so I can acknowledge you too. Thanks again everyone for what you’ve allowed me and my family to enjoy. We’re truly grateful.
