Hi Ladies and Gents,
Aaaaaand - we're back to our regular programming here in the new year of 2022 - the year of our Lord two thousand twenty two on the Gregorian Calendar! Andreas here again on the Andreas Philip Gross Enterprises blog. A very happy Monday and HAPPY NEW YEAR 2022 to you all! You know, I really find it unbelievable that it's already 2022! For those of you who were paying close attention, yes, I did miss my final post of 2021 which was supposed to happen on Thursday, December 23rd. I tried hard to get a good, meaningful post squeezed in there; but, well, let's just say, what was I thinking trying to post the day before the start of a 4-day weekend; the day before Christmas Eve, ha, ha! Time hurries on like it's going out of style! Our youngest, Luke King, will be turning 7 months in a week. I really can't believe just how much FASTER time seems to speed up with each passing year! The older I get, the faster time progresses. Months seem like fortnights, and years seem like 6-month periods of time!
As for last year for me, 2021 started off amazingly and ended with an absolute nose dive. Well, I shouldn't say a total "nose dive." Yes, it's true, I both got my basic ICF coaching certificate AND lost a TON of weight in 2021 - close to 50 pounds over 2020-2021 combine, to be precise - those two things being coupled with our youngest son being born and receiving a promotion at work. All of those things were A LOT of hard work, with losing all that weight and trying to figure out the cadence and PURPOSE of my new job probably being the two absolute hardest of all! I was within a hair's breadth - literally just a few pounds away - from dropping under 300 pounds for the first time since the big "Explosion At 30!" Well, in this regard, I "nose dived." That two years' worth of hard work was all lost in the last three months of 2021 when I gained it all back again. But, despite gaining those 50 pounds back, all was not lost! Actually, walking out of 2021 with those 50 pounds back around my waist AND a coaching mindset showed me just HOW MUCH I have been barking up the proverbial "wrong tree" with regards to my life overall. You see, because of now having a coaching mindset, I have started picking and prodding away at all the little things I can "fix" in life; however, all this picking and prodding has shown me that the changes need to be MUCH bigger and MUCH MORE fundamental than that! That is why, starting in just three short weeks here, I will be stepping out of my leadership role as an Elementary School Academic Coordinator and going back to the classroom as just a regular 2nd-3rd Grade English Teacher at a different school, and getting paid MORE in the process (because now I know and value my worth)! But more on this another time.....
January and a new year are here, and with that, as today is the first post in a new month, that means it’s time for the Monthly Round Up and Peek at the Month Ahead.
Let’s take a quick look back at December and see what happened here at Andreas Philip Gross Enterprises. December was the new and improved Andreas Philip Gross Enterprises’ second full-month back online! Although cut a little short because of the Christmas-New Year Holiday, we got to go through our second full monthly cycle of blog posts, and even managed to get an interview in! There was a Coordinate THAT! post, one Coaching Is... post (I missed the last one on Thursday, December 23rd), and several inspirational business posts. As laid out back in October when I came back on line, that is the general monthly collection of posts you can expect every month (except there should be two Coaching Is... posts) and, well, two months in and things have been going pretty strong - all this on top of a very busy day job and a family.
The Coordinate THAT! post for the month of December was a guest post from my sister, U.S. Naval Officer Kim Herm, looking at Leading Teams. The one and only Coaching Is... post was a personal post about my own coaching journey so far. In our interview we heard from Pat Old, owner and operator of Estate Services out of Pullman, Washington. For those paying attention, this was a business interview from The Pullmanic last Fall that I hadn't yet run as a stand-alone interview here on the Andreas Philip Gross Enterprises site yet. In terms of business inspiration, with the idea of Winter Break looming - at least for schools - in December, I exposed some potential money-making ideas for teachers to pursue over holidays as well as discussed three ways (out of MANY) to make money online - a good ol' classic!
With December behind us now, we are now in the throes of winter proper, although Chinese New Year is just around the corner! With that said, January will be another shortened month of posts. My last post will be on Thursday, January 20th - you can hold me to it! - before I shut down for a full three weeks of much deserved, if I may say, Chinese New Year Holiday. With that in mind, there won't be an interview this month, but we will see business idea posts about seasonal sales and how no one likes a hard seller. I’ll bust out two Coaching Is... posts, and, I'll post my last Coordinate THAT! post as an Elementary School Academic Coordinator....at least for the time being.
