Year in Review: Margo Myers Communications
What a year in 2010! A ‘shout out’ to blog visitors. A big ‘thank you’ to all of you who stop by and check out my blog. I appreciate it, as well as your comments. I don’t make any money from my blog — it’s simply something I enjoy doing. And it gives me a forum to let you know what I’m up to, what my clients are up to, or even just events and things that are going on that interest me.
Breaking it down — Wine and boating turned out to be major writing topics this year. We’ve been introduced to several winemakers in Woodinville. And I have a number of contacts there as well through WSU, and what’s not to like about our Washington red blends? (It’s something a number of local wineries do so well). This year brought us posts on Betz Family Winery, Efeste, Brian Carter and JM Cellars, not to mention the Seattle Wine Awards, and a tasting trip to Woodinville.
In addition to wine and boating, a number of my clients are doing cool and interesting things, including Ovaleye, Cleaner Cook, Parent Map, Senior Services of Snohomish County, KCSARC, Port of Seattle, Rotary First Harvest’s Cab Classic, WI Environmental, Families and Friends of Violent Crime Victims, Forgotten Children’s Fund and Crow’s Nest Yachts Seattle. These are all wonderful clients, and I thank them for their business in the past year, and look forward to continued relationships.
Just for Fun. Sometimes I just like to post for fun, such as on trips to the San Juans and Santa Barbara, or on my love of California Impressionists.
GoGirl Academy, Boys and Girls Clubs ‘InfluenceHer’ and Miss Seattle. A lot of you know that a group of us started GoGirl Academy, a 10-week career development course for women, and we expect it to expand in 2011. It’s been so rewarding to see women come into our classes, gain the tools they need to polish their presentation skills, and then take off in the workplace. New jobs, dream jobs, promotions — we’ve seen our women make tremendous progress and we love it! Look for more on GGA in 2011 and please visit www.gogirlacademy.com for more information. InfluenceHer is another big program for which I volunteer — helping BGCKC create intentional programs for girls to give them tools they need to succeed at a young age. And I loved being a judge for Miss Seattle this year, meeting an impressive group of young women who have poise beyond their years, and a desire to make Seattle a better place.
Wrapping up 2010. I hope 2010 was a good year for you. I know it wasn’t a great year for many, but I’m excited about what 2011 will bring! Stay tuned for new projects, new clients, and new blog posts on interesting events coming up. I wish all of you happy holidays and a wonderful new year!
