It is early January and once again I’m feeling blessed with work. In the last few weeks I’ve had 3 clients contact me for feng shui consultations. After a 3 month hiatus, it feels good to get back to doing what I love - helping people make the most of their living and working environments.
Last year business was a bit up and down. Some months I was busy working with 3-4 clients at a time, while other months things were very quiet. Along the way I struggled with how to talk about what I do without loosing my clients in feng shui jargon or scientific explanations. While I enjoy research and report writing, I found that – in this economy – many clients prefer a verbal consultation which can be very cost effective because all the work is done in-person and on-site.
Another thing I learned last year is that people will call when they are ready to transition or make a change in their life. Every time I receive a consultation inquiry, my heart leaps for joy at the opportunity to help someone set themselves up for success as they step into the next phase of their life. Last year I was able to help a variety of people through life transitions including: an empty nesting couple optimize the use of their 4 bedroom home; two small business owners setup home offices; and a couple of families select new homes. I feel very fortunate to have met and worked with wonderful people last year, and I’m looking forward to growing these relationships and building new ones this year.
As an architect driven to create beauty in the environment, I combine sustainable design, classical feng shui, and the aesthetics of beauty in every consultation.
