    I love this post, Megan! I think it’s so important to focus on the purpose of hosting a sale instead of just trying to make more money. Also, I love that you’re the one behind the scenes answering questions – it makes such a big difference!

    Sigh… Megan, I loved reading this! Here are 2 quotes that really struck me:

    1) “The Takeaway: You get to choose how you run your business. Do what feels right. Forget the rest. No amount of money is worth missing out on what really matters in your world!”

    YES! You’re soooo right. It’s hard to remember this, and allow yourself to step outside the lines. Whose lines are these, anyway?!

    2) “In the past, I’ve fallen prey to chasing moving targets. No number was enough. And friend, that chase is exhausting. There is never any time to celebrate. There is never time to reflect and be thankful. More is more and that was that.”

    Again, spot on. I’m in this spot right now and it’s so hard. Thank you for reminding me to pause.

    Girl, I get that spot and feelings! I was SO there at the end of last year. You are not alone there <3 I did a lot of work just stripping this biz down over the past year. Down to what matters and letting go of the bells and whistles that really didn't need to be there! I'm cheering you and here for you! XOXO

    Great post! Congratulations hitting your numbers on your thanksgiving sales. It’s encouraging to know that it’s possible to have a business with kids and not have to chase the paper wagon. Love your insight on staying true to who you are and knowing when enough is enough. xoxoxo
