Reflections – Publisher’s Letter, December 2015
This is our December Issue and so appropriately the theme is about prayer, spiritual living, and peace. Another year has passed and the holiday season is here. The time of year when people smile more, greetings seem more sincere, and kindness abounds. We actually spend time socializing with old friends and a blanket of warmth and contentment wraps us up. I always wonder why we are not in that state of mind every day—365 days a year.
So as 2015 draws to a close I want to express my gratitude once more to our readers, our distributors, and the advertisers who support our mission. Without you, your support and energy we would not be. So for your involvement with us, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. For every person who visited an advertiser, became a client, made a new friend, found an answer, attended a seminar or added support in any fashion, I thank you. I know and believe together we made a difference in 2015. On what scale, I do not know. If one person influences just one person and then they continue to pass it on, we have a chance to broaden that scale. That is part of my life works.
This year I want to do so much more. Improving the look and content are at the head of the list. Inspired Table and Holistic Pets will grow and become featured sections. After three years of ownership I can now focus on design, layout, and content. This, of course, will be championed by the brains behind Natural Awakenings of Central New Jersey, our editor Kathy, truly the driver and backbone of my publication. Without this woman, we would never be as successful as we are today. In January, we plan to introduce a new Social Media presence, increase our marketing capabilities, add distribution points and improve to be the best we can be. In 2016, our goals will continue to further our primary mission: to educate, inspire, guide and support our local community.
Thank you once more for being part of Natural Awakenings. One more thing if you have any thought on how we might improve, please drop us a note, pick up the phone or simply e-mail us your thoughts. Better yet drop by the NA, Valley Pharmacy networking party on December 3 (details on page 14).
To each and all, have a wonderful holiday season and a very Happy New Year.
