Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone

Transition for most people is hard, even if it’s a positive change. Stepping out of your comfort zone takes courage whether it’s for your business or in your personal life.  There are some people who are willing to continue to operate like they have for years. But our landscape is changing at a rapid pace and change is inevitable. Instead of resisting change, embrace it because what you resist persists. Push yourself by taking a baby step; you’ll be amazed at what you or your business can do!

After hundreds of years of hard work, Santa Claus has decided to hang up his jingle bells, park his reindeer, close the woodshop and retire.  Old St. Nick sold his North Pole residence, downsized and moved into retirement paradise at Riderwood retirement community in Silver Spring, MD,  (www.RiderwoodVillage.us ) where he is experiencing life as never before.
