Introducing Lacy!

"Organizational effectiveness does not lie in that narrow minded concept called rationality. It lies in the blend of clearheaded logic and powerful intuition." - Henry Mintzberg, Researcher McGill University



Friends, I had a moment. A big intuitive, potentially life changing moment that was all bright lights and clarity. Dramatic, right? It was a moment where a few particular lessons I've been learning collided while I was having breakfast one morning at a local cafe over emails. One lesson had to do with creating more support in my home life. One about more support in my work life. Another about asking for what is needed. Another about standing in my truth/power even after I ask for what is needed and don't receive (we have to ask again or perhaps create/give it to ourselves). Another about letting go of the glory of being busy. That kind of stuff.

The moment led to a full circle realization that while I've been slowly welcoming radical support into my personal life (hello, stay at home Papa John!), I hadn't yet learned the lesson of welcoming it into my work life. Friends, I think I got it.

Meet my new biz manager and health coach @lacylike. Lucky me!!!!
(ps: laptop skin available here)

With lots of careful consideration, undeniable intuition, and major confirmations from the universe at every turn, I am so excited to introduce my new full time Business Doula. Her name is Lacy. She is awesome. And hiring her many many weeks ago was one of my best moves. I've had part time interns and assistants here and there, but never a full time employee and certainly never anyone with job duties that include things like task mastering and holding space, detailed doer and dream weaver of new offerings, biz soul mission supporter and project manager, hopeful spirit and meticulous organizer. It's like having a business manager and doula all in one. And if she couldn't be a better fit, she's also a skilled health coach who has already shown me how home juiced carrot juice doesn't have to taste like carrot juice at all (a good thing, if you're me).

Full time, friends. I am excited. Lacy is excited. And we're excited to see what can unfold when two hearts and two doers tackle what is possible for Kelly Rae Roberts LLC! Come say hello at hello@kellyraeroberts.com!

Here's to genuine unleashing! Welcome aboard Lacy. You are going to love this community!

Congratulations on finding such a wonderful employee! I love the job title too: Business Doula! I would love to have a job sharing my administrative and creative skills to help a fellow artist 'birth' more fabulous work - it would feel so collaborative! Thanks for planting a fun idea in my head - I may just start advertising my skills locally for this! =-)
