Kelly Scott - People behind the Business

I met Kelly few years ago. Out paths had crossed at Chamber of Commerce networking events and Coffee Club. But over the past year going to Coffee Club almost every week, I learned more about her business.

Kelly is the business coach and her company is Bound for Bliss. Her goal is to help her clients in creating the life they desire.

We sat down recently to chat about her path and passion for business and personal coaching

She went back to school to become a therapist, but found herself more in alignment with life coaching  -  the proactive aspect of it as well as being able to use ones past as a tool in shaping the future.

I asked her about her clients - who are people who are seeking her help.

Kelly -  its people who are deciding that they need the change in their life or people who are going through change.

She helps her clients in seeing a bigger picture.... putting all the little puzzle pieces in their life and putting it all together. People who know that they need to grow, and will need to put the effort in that growth. As she said  -  " the people are finally to the point where the pain of change is less than the pain that they are in -  because the pain is what pushes you forward."

Kelly starts her day with yoga and meditation and she also uses it in helping her clients growing in awareness -  noticing their own story and being able to write their own story, and learning from their experiences.

Majority of Kelly's coaching sessions are via phone. It helps with clients busy schedules as well as help them being open in their own environment.

If you think that Kelly could help you check out her website -  Bound for Bliss and her social media on Facebook and Instagram

Picassos Grapvine - all the bright future

Picasso's Grapevine is more than just painting  and wine, it offers palette sign classes and make your own corn-hole classes, to wine glass and wine bottle painting classes.

Recently there are some changes coming to this lovely art place. The building has new owners,  but the Grapevine is still going to offer classes -  they are just moving downstairs, while a bigger and broader future space is spruced up in a barn house not too far away on Clarkston road.

But on this day - in the very first week of 2018, Leanna Haun was boxing up the bright paintings as she was moving the classroom downstairs.

Murder Mystery Dinner hosted by Clarkston Chamber of Commerce YPN

This was second annual Murder Mystery Dinner hosted by Clarkston Area Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals Network. Pine Knob Mansion was the perfect place for the Gatsby themed event. The guests dressed the part, the actors ( Clarkston Village Players as well as Chamber members) brought the gangsters, politicians and flappers to life, and the guilty party was brought to justice.
