A monthly letter from the desk of Sarah Fejfar

Hey there!

I hope you enjoyed an outstanding February and got out and made the most of it.

Oregon truly is magical. We certainly got out and saw a lot of it this month.  My favorite adventure goes to a full-sun perfect-powder day downhill skiing on Mount Hood and enjoying a picnic lunch outside… but cross-country skiing on Hood the following weekend was a very close second; it’s such a peaceful sport!

All that said, I’m curious…

What did you learn last month?

Here are a few of my February learnings:

  •  Changing the game: Last week I wrapped up production on a 3-day virtual event for a client and their feedback afterwards was “you changed the game for us.” It was a high-profile client, and I think because of that, the comment took me by surprise.  It reminded me how easy it is to live and breathe a thing (like events, for me) and then take what I consider table stakes or common-sense information and discount the value it could bring to others, regardless of their position in the marketplace.

  •  Trusting my gut: I learned I need to trust my gut when selecting clients to work with.  I did an after-action review on a client project that finished in February and the reflection showed me all the red flags I ignored.

  •  Delegation: I hired my first team member in February, and it’s got my brain spinning in all sorts of new directions; analyzing everything I’m doing to not only find tasks that could be done by someone else but also to find places where I’m truly being irresponsible and keeping the information in my head when it should be documented and systematized.

  •  I still love the Olympics. My phone ringer is the Olympic anthem; always has been, always will be.  Watching this month only reinforced that decision.

What are you working on in March?

Here’s what I’m tackling:

  1. My content rhythm: It’s a puzzle I’ve taken on to produce a weekly podcast and disseminate the content and I have a lot of work to do to fine-tune it into a well-oiled rhythm. I find comfort in knowing a system is in place and I’m working on dialing mine in for content creation and dissemination.  Onward!

  2. Building relationships: I love how it feels to meet new people and build relationships that support the most important roles I play in my life.  As an aside, our family is going through the Family Teams curriculum developed by The Pryor and Bethke families and they invited us to create a record of the roles we play in our lives it was truly eye-opening to record so many roles and then also list those who are most important to us within each role so we can do a better job of staying in touch with those we care about.

  3. Focus: taking baby steps towards more intentional time blocking on my calendar; it feels so good to do one thing at a time so I’m working on doing more of that in March.

And there you have it, my March update for you. Just thought I’d share and keep in contact.

I hope this note finds you and your loved ones happy and healthy.

Make it an outstanding March!

Warm Regards,
