The October Buzz
Hello,

What a year is has become! If you know me at all, I love a good meme on social media. There's nothing better than someone capturing exactly how you feel with a silly image and a witty one liner. I think we can all agree when they say, 2020 needs to wrap up. But...I wouldn't be a true therapist if I didn't circle back around and say that we can always find the value in hardship.

If you tried hard enough, you can think back on times and find the grace and resilience of your darkest days, so this year will be no different. We will overcome and grow in many ways as we live through 2020 and beyond. Remember to find the strength in one another, grow your community, and know that you are never alone. Simply Bee and many others in this world are promoting health and happiness. Never let the darkness overshadow all of the good that lives in your life today.

Until next time,
Audrey
What's Ahead
Webinar Launch - October 6th: How To Be A Confident Professional
Have you ever found yourself wondering... "Why do I freeze in front of my boss, or a client?" or "Why am I constantly overthinking every decision to the point I'm less and less productive?" Maybe you just don't feel like yourself at work - not because you're upholding a certain level of professionalism but because you feel like you have to hide who you truly are in the workplace.

If this is you, check out our newest webinar launching today with Therapist & Performance Coach, Eric Stevenson, LPC and Simply Bee Owner & Therapist, Audrey Grunst, MSW. They will walk you through not only why you might be feeling that way but more importantly, how to overcome it so that you can show up as a confident professional.
