I just sent out an email to my newsletter friends, but I'm going to copy and paste it here so the rest of you can read it here too. One of these days I'll figure out how to remove the "sign up" message- in the meantime, ignore it when you see it.
It's been a struggle for me to send out emails over the years because I just HATE the idea that I'm adding to the inbox overwhelm most of us feel these days...so I'm letting that go. I'm cancelling my email service provider this week.
I appreciate personal emails and messages from all of you, so please don't feel you can't get in touch! I will always welcome hearing from any of you and get back to you, of course. You can use my contact forms on this website such as this one.
This is my last email to you.
Over the first few weeks of 2018 a word has been popping up everywhere I look- "Simplify". And when it comes to a structured email campaign, this decision makes the most sense to me. I don't have to do what "everyone" else does. I don't even open most of the business emails that hit my inbox, and I feel very strongly that most of you don't either- life is too short to be burdened by constant emails.
Rather than spending time and money crafting the occasional email I can better put my resources to use doing things that make life better for both of us- whether it's a blog series, recipe development, customer service calls, or in-home companion days.
I appreciate all of you sticking with me over the years! I'm not going anywhere. The Meals Maven has been a labour of love and I wouldn't do anything else. Keep an eye on me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn. And of course, www.themealsmaven.com isn't going anywhere either. If you don't follow me on any of those social media sites, my handle is the same everywhere- @themealsmaven. Please "like" and "follow" me wherever you can. Comment on my posts, tell your family and friends about me, and help me grow my business so
I can keep helping others improve their lives as well.
In closing, if there's anything I can ever do for you to make your life better with regards to your relationship with food or nutrition, or if you want to touch base with me to tell me about your latest wins, or if you have a challenge you just can't wrap your head around, I'm always happy to receive emails or messages from YOU- I will always open those ones and you'll hear back from me :)
All the best, friends. You are the backbone of who I am and I thank you for your support over the years. I've changed and grown and morphed over the years into who I am today and feel more strongly than ever that this is the right path for The Meals Maven to be on.
