The Zoom on 2/8 was a success & I'm sharing feedback sent to me by the New York City Chapter who sponsored the event where I donated Essential Awakenings® kits to all attendees:

"I can't wait to use this with my Dad this weekend. He is at Atria on the Hudson. How might we do a program there?"

"When I was a little girl (65 years ago) my Mom used a Spanish soap called Maja. Till this day I buy the same soap and I always think of my Mom. It's a happy, peaceful memory.This is such a wonderful program! Thank you"

"Thank you for this new way to share thoughts and memories, and even just talk about what scents are enjoyable in the moment even if she can’t remember certain specifics. Conversation and connection is important."

"I have to leave but wanted to thank the Alzheimer's Association for this offering and Ruth for using her knowledge and talent for this program. This is brilliant!"

"This is so wonderful for engaging our loved ones. Thanks!"

"I cannot wait to use this. Thank you"

"This was such an amazing and innovative program. More, please!"

I am always grateful for feedback and I love what I do.  Thank you to all caregivers who will be using Essential Awakenings® in their activities with whom they take care of.  You shine the light onto the lives of people who you help! - Ruth Sutcliffe, Founder, The Scent Guru Group, LLC

I often use metaphors when I write and since baseball was a big part of my childhood growing up, I like to use terms from this sport in my storytelling.  As a rookie entrepreneur and small business owner, I admit it has been a challenge to get to 3rd base but it will be even tougher to reach home plate and I'd rather run there, versus walk. Being a small business owner has its good and bad points:  The good ones are that we can forgo some of the multiple layers of management to make decisions because there is one clear goal and no politics involved.  More often than not, the key to a smooth launch is the ability to pull the right talent together to make a great team. On the other hand, the downside is that we suffer from the lack of economies of scale and have to pay to play--usually all up front-- before any production lines get the "go" sign. Whether you are a small or big business, there will always be some hiccups along the way.  For me, there were just a one or two foul balls, and some curve balls that went array, but my glove fits
