Lynne here, Joy's assistant, writing to you today while Joy is recovering nicely from surgery. I'm so happy to report to all of you that Joy and her husband Greg are doing remarkably well after their surgery on Tuesday! Both have been out of bed walking, talking with family and posing for photo's. (check them out on the Caring Bridge web site link below) I was so relieved when I heard they were both doing well. Here is a photo of Joy post-surgery. Doesn't she look beautiful?
If you are a new reader, Joy's husband Greg, has Polycystic Kidney Disease and was in need of a kidney transplant. After months of extensive testing, it was determined that Joy was a match and could donate one of her kidneys to Greg. To sign-up to receive updates on their progress, please visit http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/joyandgreg and register for the Journal notifications. You can also see some great photo's of Joy and Greg or sign their Guestbook.
Thanks again to all of the women who have participated in Joy's Smart Woman Survey. We have had a terrific response. Just in case you are curious, here are a few highlights:
The top 3 responses to what you would like to learn in a community of like-minded women was:
1. Solutions on how to start a business or advance an existing business
2. Clarifying future Goals, deciding what's next and developing an Action Plan
3. Self-Care – Meditation/Relaxation techniques
We love this! Smart Women do think alike…
Also, many of you have a home-based business, use Facebook, and the one area you find most difficult in business and would like help with is marketing your business more effectively. This is really good stuff and really helps Joy to know what your needs are.
Remember…the survey will be closed tomorrow night, December 4, so if you haven't jumped on over to take it, please do so right away. We want your input AND you will get Joy's F*R*E*E (for a limited time only) audio, “The 3 Steps Every Woman Needs to Launch Her Life into 2010 with Complete Success.” Click here to take the survey now.
It seems that the month of December is going to be full of celebrations. Joy and Greg's recovery, the December holidays, Joy will be turning 50 and Smart Women Smart Solutions will be 5 years old! Stay tuned and watch your emails because Joy is planning on celebrating BIG and she wants to share the celebration with you!
