2017 Gratitude and Passion Led Us Here
We say goodbye to 2017 with gratitude and passion while we embrace yet another new year.
There have been incredible leaps forward and very frustrating setbacks this past year, but I’m always reminded of why we do what we do.
While we say goodbye to 2017, the first thing on my mind is how grateful I am for the experience.
I want to thank all of our members for their role in advancing bed bug education to all their clients. Many of these issues that were once nonexistent and rare, yet now, have become an everyday occurrence for many.
I have sincere gratitude for the opportunity to have served so many and gratitude for having made it through the challenges of 2017 stronger than the previous year.
Gratitude to those who trusted me with their embarrassment and shame when it came to their bed bug problems.
I have immense gratitude for the love and support of my amazing friends, and colleagues, family, sisters, grandchildren and my companion Kona whose unconditional love keeps me going each day.
2017 Bed Bug Recap
I’ve noticed this year, that more and more people are walking away from using chemicals. I’ve even seen pros reaching out to other pros asking what works, because what they have in their arsenal is failing.
My passion for people, has caused me to help those who cannot afford a professional treatment with sound, non-toxic methods to keep their families safe while getting rid of their bed bug problem.
Do-it-yourselfers, have ranked high in search engines this past year, all surveying affordable ways to combat their bed bug problems.
The bed bug issues in multi-unit properties are becoming much more serious. We’ve seen more problems with management and owners allowing new tenants to move into infested units and are not taking responsibility.
On the flipside, many multi-unit property owners and management are purchasing their own heat equipment and further educating their tenants in order to cut down on infestations.
Heater rentals for those who can’t afford professionals are spreading across the nation.
I believe this new year will be packed full of even more challenges with bed bugs and the people who get them.
My 2018 Intentions
My intentions for 2018 is to be there to the best of my ability for those who need help, recommendations or just a listening ear.
To help others fill the gaps, supply well-needed education and materials to my members.
To hopefully, make a difference with all I come in contact with this new year.
I am so grateful for having the opportunity to go back to complete my schooling in nutrition.
Many of you know I’ve studied health and nutrition since I was young and have always had a great passion in the field.
Eating for most is even a bigger problem worldwide than bed bugs because it can cause serious health issues.
The obesity rates and growing type 2 diabetes are significantly higher than ever and growing daily.
And not for just adults, children as well.
Having lost so many family members and friends to debilitating diseases, I only wish I knew then, what I know now.
As an Integrative Nutritional Health Coach, I work with people to help them find their way back to healthy eating. This helps them heal from years of poor eating, along with helps with weight issues, obesity and a multitude of inflammatory diseases that plagues over 50% of our nation.
Interestingly, in order to get health insurance in other countries, they measure your waistline to see if you are overweight. If you are, your insurance premiums are higher. It is anticipated that this will happen in the US.
My Wishes for You
From the bottom of my heart, I wish for all of you, emotional healing, good health, the love and respect from family, friends, co-workers and clients.
So let’s all take on this new year with a fresh start, peace in your heart and have a prosperous New Year!
