A Thanksgiving Poem: Grateful for 2021 and Hopeful for 2022 and Beyond

The best thing about 2021 is that it wasn’t 2020.

Yes, we are still dealing with COVID, and have lost some along the way.

Yes, we still live in a divided country and there are many living with divided families.

True, not enough progress has been made to course-correct on very critical issues at a critical flashpoint. We still have systemic racism, a gender wage gap, a lack of diversity in top leadership, and worsening weather impacts of global warming.

Yet, in 2021, I had more hope than ever that we might see these things corrected in my lifetime, or at least my kids’ lifetimes.

Why? The C3 community!

I spent the year doubling the people and impact of a community of conscious leadership warriors who are battle-proven at making the world a better place, and are committed to collaborating to accelerate conscious changes where a lot of the power lies – at the corporate executive level.

Not only does change seem more possible, but I feel relieved that these amazing people are “on it” and we got each others’ backs!

We’re ready, or at least getting there!

I have been so amazingly supported and it has made a world of difference in my outlook of the future. My core team, C3 co-manager, Lawrence Henderson, and my virtual assistant, Cynthia Harder, is fortified. And, the team is expanding as our capacity to do even more expands.

Did you know that an expectation of a positive outcome is necessary for your motivation brain centers to activate? Do you also know how much more possible a positive outcome seems when you have a team that is helping you build a community of people with a similar mission?

As a result of being so well supported and so hopeful, we embarked on a brand new adventure to host the Consciousness Conference and present the first Conscious Leadership award. We started something really special that has tremendous potential to assemble the best and brightest minds in conscious leadership to offer a menu of solutions for the challenges of the past we are still not through, the challenges of the pandemic and political climate of today, and the unknown of tomorrow.

I was so unmotivated by goals after 2020. Goals felt heavy, but possibilities pulled me forward. And, when 2021 threw some new challenges, it was having Lawrence and Cynthia on my team that helped me re-engage and persevere.

Because of the amazing support of my core team, the enthusiasm of the community, and the talent and passion of ancillary members of my team, we exponentially expanded our capacity to accelerate the conscious leadership movement AND I enjoyed working with many repeat clients helping them realign their careers to new priorities, stronger values, and improved lifestyles while meeting and working with some of the most impressive, conscious innovators and leaders to maximize their impact and influence by crafting compelling brands and consulting to them on powerful proactive campaign strategies and tactics.

Cynthia Harder is not my first virtual assistant, but she is the most experienced virtual assistant I have engaged. She has been with me now for two years as of September (close to beating Angela’s record of 2.5 years 😊). With my previous assistants, I knew I was a pit stop on their way to realizing a different dream, and I loved being a stepping stone for them. I’d like to think that they went on to be successful, fulfilled professionals in part because of our time together and learning from my work with my clients how to promote their value and qualify their employers. However, training and developing talent takes time. If I hadn’t had Cynthia, a smart, resourceful, self-managing, caring professional who takes immense pride in doing her job well, who embraces my clients and cares about their successes, too, and who is organized, persistent and adaptable, I hate to think about how 2020 and 2021 would have been. We have this system that works like a machine whether I have my hand on the controls or not. When the challenges of teaching a virtual class, parenting through virtual at-home learning, overwhelm from successive dismal world events, discouraging event sales, and learning my mom has cancer arose, I was able to take my hands off of the controls of my business and hand them to Cynthia for a while. Besides the ability to do this, there’s the knowing that I can do this and everything will keep going that lifts some heavy burdens from my mind and makes it that much easier for me to bounce back and pick up where I left off, if not a bit further ahead than I was. I am so thankful for Cynthia! I wish everyone had a Cynthia!

Lawrence and I reminisced about the first LinkedIn exchange we had back in May of 2020. I was looking to connect with and collaborate with like-missioned disruptors. Lawrence was my first or second outreach, and his response was perfect – he also was pretty tired of the competition and looking to collaborate. It was like we were speaking the same leadership language. Within the first 20 minutes of our first conversation, we felt our collective energies rise. (I give him the credit for that, considering he is certified in Energy Leadership from iPEC). The co-creation began instantly. We haven’t stopped since. Because he is who he is, co-creation continued rather than stalling when the above challenges arose. He’s got me. I’ve got him. It’s a beautiful thing! I am so grateful Lawrence responded to my LinkedIn message. His belief in me and his appreciation for me help me see myself as the powerful force of creation that I am and keep me wanting to create more.

Co-creation was one of the best things that came out of 2020, and it was a theme that carried over into 2021, and, I expect, will be how I will do it all from now on. I realized that co-creation is the key to fulfilling the big vision. I have a library of creative ideas, such as books, movies, songs, and events, that blossomed through the pandemic, and 2022 is going to be about leveraging co-creation to take these ideas from concept through commercial launch. Finding aligned co-creators isn’t easy. (Branding helps!) Knowing now what is possible when you do find aligned co-creators has sparked a new enthusiasm and motivation. My theme for 2022 is… Diversify and Expand.

  • In April, I will be instructing again for the Young Entrepreneurs Academy helping 6th through 12th graders manage their newly funded businesses.
  • The core team will continue to grow and empower the C3 community to give emerging leaders a stage and offer new opportunities to be a part of the legacy.
  • We have already started planning the next ConCon (in person).
  • I will continue to develop my résumé and LinkedIn writing team to support the leads with which I am entrusted from my network, and continue working with executive leadership on building a brand and a legacy of their own.
  • With a team beside me to support all of that, I will integrate stalled and new creative endeavors for which I am excited to engage co-creators, such as my book, For the Highest Good: How Conscious Corporate Leaders of Today Can Save Tomorrow, as well as an album of songs, mostly unfinished, reflecting reality as I see it is and how I see it could be, and a screenplay for a comedy that came to me one Friday night this month.
  • And, the band is getting back together! Harpers Ferry is back at the Bridgeport Ribhouse on March 13, 2022. It’s been a long time since we rock and rolled. Come rock with us if you can.

Though in my house we are not back to our pre-2020 activities yet, we have been enjoying reconnecting with friends and family, getting back to some of our passions, like music, and even discovering new ones, like my girls’ new love of softball.

Though we had been hit hard by some losses and scared we may suffer more still, we are entering the holiday season knowing that my mom’s cancer prognosis is good and the prospect of celebrating with her is so much better. We are very hopeful we will have many more Christmases and New Years with her.

Of course, I am thankful every day for my amazing clients and referral partners. I am humbled every time someone trusts me with their career fate or the career fate of their clients/friends/family. I take it very earnestly. I know how many people benefit from the right leader being in the right role and company with the skills of influence and the mission of impact.

Without further adieu, my traditional Thanksgiving poem:

We made it through the rough
Exhausted and shrunken
Discouraged and dismayed

To find the waters still rippling
Gurgling with grief
Yet moving out to open seas

Mixing in fresh with salty
Curdling in foam
Seeking a current

The destination seemed impossible
I was witness to ripples
And I joined them

Ripples became waves upon the shore
Some were ready
High on the mountain

Others ignore the signs
Washed away on the beach
Just in time, a hand above grabbed

Every terrace has a hand
Ready to lift
Ready to climb

Until we all see the horizon and rest

Highlights of My 15 Years in Business

Today I celebrate the 15th anniversary of the day I officially started Charésumé, LLC (dba Epic Careering.)

I clearly remember the Memorial Day weekend right before my business launched. I fasted and cleaned and organized my office to prepare my mind, my body, and my physical space for a new beginning. That beginning has led to many other beginnings over the past 15 years. It hasn’t all been easy, but it’s been fulfilling and made a difference in many lives.

The #1 highlight has always been my clients. There have been so many amazing clients I have gotten to coach, but also to learn from – how they succeeded, how they overcame challenges, how they influenced change, what they had to endure. Along with my helping them, there have been many professional redemption stories – clients who realized their potential, found a new professional home, and thrived financially and personally because they were nurtured in being their whole selves, inside and outside work hours.

While my clients reached new professional heights, somehow, I managed to keep my business going through two pregnancies, births, 4 years of breastfeeding, and 5 years of either no school for my kids or half-day school.

Other highlights include:
  • Additional publications on Philly.com, ReadersDigest.com, and CPAJournal
  • Working with Tracy Davidson of NBC10 on her Jump Start events, doing LinkedIn training, and being interviewed at the studio for a segment
  • Many radio interviews and podcast features
  • Being Professor Huller, teaching and inspiring tomorrow’s leaders to follow their dreams
  • Drexel University’s recognition as a published faculty member for Laser-Sharp Career Focus: Pinpoint your Purpose and Passion in 30 days
  • Winning a Feedspot top 100 Career Blog award
  • Three years of YEA Philadelphia students who learned how to start a business, some of which still prosper today!
  • Winning 2nd place with my StockJock team at Philly Startup Weekend (Adam, Anas, John, John’s friend)
  • Growing into Corporate training and State (DE) training
  • Founding and co-managing the C3 Community on LinkedIn, engaging the awesome Lawrence Henderson as my partner
My clients have been from:
  • Comcast
  • UPenn
  • IBX
  • GSK
  • QVC
  • TD Bank
  • ICON
  • SAP
  • ADP
  • Oracle
  • GE
  • GM
  • Qlik
  • IBM
  • eBay
  • Honeywell
  • J&J (& subsidiaries)
  • Aramark
  • Quest Diagnostics
I have spoken at/for:

The PA Conference for Women, GVFHRA (local SHRM chapter), Philadelphia Great Careers Group, Jump Start Your Job Search, Black Data Processors Association, ChemPharma, AichE, FENG, TPNG (where I was also co-chair for 2 years.)

I have been mentored by:

Ford Myers, Ed Callahan, Jon Wagner, and Dr. Dawn Francis.

I have developed the following programs/inventions:
  • Jack Shipley helped me gamify the Accelerfate Career Campaign tool
  • Jedi and the team at OpenForge, after a successful crowdfunding campaign with 76 lenders, helped me turn Accelerfate into a mobile game prototype
  • Wharton MBA students who helped develop the prototype for an Online Executive Branding tool
  • The Corporate Consciousness Ripple Blueprint was a 3-year labor of love that took all of my years of learning and experience to curate and develop with various coaches helping me along the way with content, curriculum, format, media, marketing, and enrollment – This is the future of my practice and the very best thing I have created thus far to make a lasting difference in this world
I have invested in studying under …

I would like to thank the talent who have supported me and my mission over the years, my interns and assistants – MaryKate Sullivan, Heidi Jenkins, Angela Mosely, MJ Concetta, and my current virtual assistant, Cynthia Harder, who has been with me for over a year and a half now.

A couple of other people who made these highlights possible are my mother-in-law, who came weekly to watch the kids while I commuted to the city to teach, and my mom also helped watch the girls while I attended conferences and earned certifications. I’d like to give a shout-out to all my kids’ caretakers who made it possible for me to be my best for my clients: Betsy Czarkowski, Elissa Salamy, Emily Vandergeest, Jenna Bednar, and Kait Brennan.

All of these people and experiences have brought me here today, and I absolutely must give major props to my husband, Tim, for supporting me emotionally, financially, and physically. He doesn’t understand the ins and outs of what I do, but he knows I love it, and he knows I’m good at it, and he has total faith in me, and that means everything, especially when I lose faith in myself.

If you are reading this to the very end, thank YOU! I don’t often hear from the people who follow me, but from time to time someone lets me know that what I am putting out into the world weekly is making a difference for them, and just to know that the time and care I put into this weekly effort is reaching other people is enough reinforcement for me to continue to do so.

Thank you all for an amazing 15 years, and here’s to the next 15 years. I look forward to more conscious co-creation.

A Thanksgiving Poem From My Heart to Yours

The world slowed down
Probably for too long.
But while we were still,
Back down to basics,
We found presence
Amidst the panic.

Moments compelled reflection
Inspired astonishment
In it while observing it
So deeply in my feelings
While also somehow
Outside my body.

The leaves slowly grew in
At times fought hard to stay
Coming down attached
And the rest fell away
As the darkness arrives
Earlier each day.

Harvests are done.
Nature rests.
Our ramp back up
Slows back down.
For a twinkle or two
Welcoming some magic.

Familiar faces and voices
With new dreams.
Companies leveling up.
Students sent off
From stability
Into uncertainty.

Culmination of years
Of wisdom and proof
Birthed the blueprint
Intent on good guys (and gals)
Owning light and darkness
To inspire ripples.

Keeping the trinity
Of health paramount.
Balancing these boundaries
For me, for you.
All the coping strategies
Some days, not enough.

We made it so far,
Well, not everyone.
All of us mourning
Some more than others.
Is it real or ambiguous?
Compassion is in fashion.

Thanks for the hindsight, 2020,
And to all who have been on this journey
Through life, work, parenting,
Making the world a better place,
Making tomorrow a better time,
And finding peace within.

Cheers to More Connection, Growth, and Sharing in 2020

I’m ready, 2020.

I started my New Year’s resolutions a bit early this year by doing a deep dive in self-assessment. As I’ve been shifting my professional goals toward more contributions to conscious leadership, I’ve really had to examine where I’ve failed to apply all that I’ve learned over the past 20 years. It’s humbling, and frequently embarrassing, but necessary.

Once the challenge of reflecting is done, I know that making a public proclamation of my 2020 intentions is the best way to transform intentions into actions and actions into results.

(I’m not calling them resolutions, as it feels like a re-solution that didn’t work before.)

Let me just dig right in, and rip the band-aid off.

I believe I have grown a bit stingy with my time, but more so, my presence. This could be due to overextending myself. How to reconcile this is tricky. I have been making contributions to various communities, but I’ve felt as though I was never giving them enough. It’s time to really own my time, and keeping a calendar is what I know works.

In the year ahead, I commit to focusing more on specific contributions I aim to make and delegating everything else that keeps me from making a contribution that feels like enough.

This means letting some things go. In 2019, I really improved in this area. In the next year, I’ll continue to pick up steam – letting old hurts go, letting physical stuff go, letting others take on tasks I’d feel compelled to do, and forgiving myself for where I fell short of my own expectations – this is the hardest one. The better I get at this, the faster I can go from ego to highest self.

Letting go requires balance, though, as I have to know when NOT to let things go, too. I still intend to speak up for myself, to stand up to those not leading with good intentions, and to be a stand for my clients and students – to shine a light on the self-talk and outdated systems that threaten to give them less than what they really want in the long run.

I also will be more vigilant about money and will work on my confidence as a good steward of finances. I will no longer continue to pay for programs that don’t support forward progress.

I’ll be sharing a lot more in 2020. Once I’m clear how best I can communicate and share, I will do so on a regular, predictable, reliable schedule.

I want to get more connected to people’s nature. To be with people, really with them. There will be much more openness, eye contact, deep soulful conversations. I will be more mindful of how I respond and punctuate conversations. I will improve my awareness of others’ feelings. I will learn how to be a better conversationalist and how to channel my curiosity while recognizing and neutralizing judgment. I want to get better at understanding how individuals prefer to be respected and regarded.

I will put myself on a follow-up schedule so that I stay in better touch with clients. I will organize more get-togethers and create more opportunities for people in my network to connect with each other, which I know is where the magic happens.

There’s one place where I have not walked the walk, doing exactly what I recommend – sending thank you sentiments. I’ve certainly dropped a heartfelt gift or note sporadically, but I want it to be a regimen, and not just the delivery of said gratitude, but the practice of really being in gratitude. This has been a part of daily routines before, and it’s time to work it back in with new rituals that will become part of systems. I will do this for how it transforms me, but also how it transforms my relationships and nurtures my network.

Sadly, I’ve been curating a collection of wonderful things I could do to better serve my mission and better support people’s professional growth, but have not done a good job in several years bringing offers into creation and I’ve never done a great job of enrolling large quantities of leaders in them so that I make the impact that I want.

This year, that changes. I’ve hired a team of coaches to hold me accountable and to help me craft, create, promote and deliver programs that transform corporate careers for my clients and their teams. They will help me finally put together the pieces of the puzzle I’ve been staring at cross-eyed, and to systematize all of this so that I can deliver consistent quality, not let anything or anyone fall through the cracks, and be a reliable solution provider.

I have a TON of content, as well, just sitting in various files where they’re doing you no good. As I’ve scaled back outgoing marketing, I’ve also started to become a harsher critic of myself, and have been scared to be too revealing of who I am through what I create. At the risk of your judgment, but also my own, I’ll be more unabashed in my expression.

All of these proclamations scare me, but that’s only when I think of myself as the person who fell short. If I focus, however, on all I have achieved, I know I’m totally capable. I have confidence in the talent supporting me, including my coaches and my virtual assistant, Cynthia.

Now comes mapping it all out. Thank God I don’t have to do that alone!

I’m excited for a new year and a new decade. I’m ready to redeem myself where I fell short, and even to make more mistakes and gain more wisdom.

I’d like to take a moment to send you a new year’s wish that you can look back 10 years from now and know that you gave the 2020s everything that you had, and so it gave you back everything you want. And, I wish that you know you’ve got a friend in Pennsylvania.

It’s me. I’m a friend in Pennsylvania.

This time I’m sending you a special gift, a song – not my song, but sung by me. It’s my first big, bold share in accordance with my 2020 proclamations, as well as my last big share of the decade. I hope you enjoy it.

‘Tis The Season to Be Reflecting and Sharing

It’s in sharing that the magic of creation happens, in all senses of the word.

What I want to share with you is just how grateful I am to have been let into your life. Regardless of whether it was in a small way or a big way, it’s still significant and has left an imprint in who I am and who I will become.

When I really think about it, I’m in awe of all that is possible because of all of the wonderful people in my world and all the communities that consider me a part of them.

This reflection is sometimes painful. There are regrets. There are also challenges overcome, lessons learned, and successes to celebrate. It’s critical preparation for the next step, which is to thoughtfully create intentions and goals for the new year based on this reflection. (I’ll share those next week.)

It’s really important to me that you know – I’m so grateful for you. I know I don’t say it enough. I don’t show it enough.

I’m working on it. I mean that.

I’m seriously looking at all I could have done to support you better, to raise your career satisfaction to epic levels.

Deep to my core I believe that work can be a fulfilling investment of your time, talent, energy and efforts that allows you to fully express who you are in ways that make a huge positive impact in the world, even if what you’re doing seems like a small part.

I want this for you. I want this for everyone.

Imagine what the world would be like if everyone was in a job that perfectly suited their skills, interests, and values.

Imagine how much more collaboration, and innovation, and ease there would be. Imagine how much more joy there would be in everything else in your life.

It may not be possible for the whole world, but it’s possible for you. And, other people will know it’s possible for them when it happens for you.

My Christmas wish is to bless everyone, including myself, with faith in themselves and fellow humans.

Bless you,

Karen Huller

A Thanksgiving Poem

I’ve never been more thankful for breath.

Such a simple thing.

So easy to take for granted, but when it’s taken

And you don’t know which will be your last

It’s simply glorious just to be able to breathe.

 

And laugh… and sing.

 

It’s been a year full of magic and miracles

Of triumphs, travels, and transitions

Of scares, scrounging, and salvaging

But rich in love, faith, and connection.

All part of the whole of life.

 

For those who entrusted me

To do right by your referrals

And to those whose kids

You put in my care,

I am grateful and humbled.

 

To every employer and contact

Who took the time to notice

And appreciate my clients’ brilliance

And made efforts to position it

For the highest good, thank you.

 

To those who made possible

Memories I’ll hold dear forever,

Disney, the Poconos, da shore,

Frankie’s birthday with all the uncles

My family blesses you.

 

Dearest clients,

I can hardly get across

How deeply appreciative I am

That you open your mind, invest in me

And let me make an impact on your life.

 

I pray for those without a home.

I think of those without a family.

I send love to those who have been without.

I appreciate those who have sacrificed for me.

I promise, you and your actions are not forgotten.

 

In this moment

I am exactly where I need to be.

I am here, if you need me.

I am open to new people and experiences.

I am blessed just to be alive.

 

I know this more deeply than ever before.

Bathe in your blessings this Thanksgiving.
