Welcome to 2023! The Year of the Rabbit, the Water Rabbit. It’s a great year to learn, persevere, and achieve. With the dedication of the Rabbit and the push of the running current of the water, 2023 is a good year to master new ideas. It’s a year for personal growth and for cultivating relationships. I’ll take it!

I don’t know exactly what this year will bring, but I do know it will bring change.

2022 was busy. I took on 2 part-time jobs as well as running COKANNA. It turned out to be a bit crazier than I had anticipated and would have liked, but I survived. It’s knowledge and experience gained for how I want to approach this next year.

I have a few ideas brewing for my business. I will be selling off my current capsule wardrobe designs so keep an eye out for events.

I’m starting a new phase of the COKANNA Virtual Coffee Shop in which I hope to run more in-person coffee shops. Maybe it’s part of that “cultivating relationships” in the Year of the Rabbit! I do know I feel the push to meet face-to-face and feel the presence of others around me rather than through a zoom screen.

As for the COKANNA brand, I feel I’m not quite done with it yet. It can’t exist in its present form so I’m opening up to new ways of doing business. I will share with you in the near future to get your valuable input as always.

For now, this is another short and sweet blog post to simply wish you a happy healthy new year full of possibility and growth.

Until next time,

~ Colleen
