More than a million young people take part in the International Letter-Writing Competition each year. In 2018, the theme of the competition was this: “Imagine you are a letter traveling through time. What message do you want to convey to your readers?”
Our “Time-Traveling” Message
Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
As we now cross over the 9-year mark since the launch of BizCatalyst 360°, our time-traveling message to the “charming gardeners who make our souls blossom” (our readers AND our extraordinary writers) can best be put forth in three heartfelt words: We’re Simply Grateful. Period. What was once an occupation for us has over time evolved into an “occupassion”. If we began listing our many challenges over the years —overshadowed by our many blessings, our time traveling letter would grow into a massive gratitude journal. Because we’re still counting our lucky stars, one by one, including:
★ Our dedicated “behind-the-scenes” @Team 360° and especially Ali, my wife, my best friend, and tireless Chief Inspiration Officer who lights my way every day. In the words of Mother Teresa; “None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful.” And so it goes with @Team 360°.
★ Our 750+ Writers across six continents —each becoming an integral part of our @BC360° concious community while gracing us with the opportunity to publish over 23,000 Articles. And the very same writers whose talent served as the foundation for the worldwide recognition bestowed upon us just a few months ago, as captured below ↓
A Year Like None Other
Without question, it’s been a year to remember and one that’s certainly challenged everyone’s resilience to the core. Along the way, we’ve done our very best to navigate through unchartered waters while intentionally steering in whatever direction deemed best for our writers and our global audience —all the while holding firm to our editorial bias in place from day one, that is; a bias for action bolstered by a bias “for good”.
Rest and be thankful.
And Now We Rest
Embracing the notion of “for good”, our ultimate birthday celebration will embrace the spirit of the above quote by taking a Team 360° “time-out” for self-care. Our lights will remain on but our publishing presses will come to a halt across the holiday season, as we embark on a “digital sabbatical from Monday, December 14th and through Friday, January 15th. If you write for us, keep on sending your “good stuff” as usual, as it will be added to your Queue for release when we return. And if you simply “read for us”, keep on coming back, as we’ve got an overflowing treasure chest of masterpieces from the best writers on the planet for you to enjoy over the holidays.
But Wait —There’s More
While the publishing presses will come to a halt, our “labor of love” production of HopeFest 360° will continue, as we gear up for worldwide release on New Year’s Day. More about that below:
On behalf of the entire Team 360°, thank you all for making our souls blossom. Because we’re simply grateful. …
