expansion update

i spent some of today working on updates to my website ( my mother is my website designer, but since she got sick i have been meticulously writing and formatting all of the content changes to make it easier for her. i'm so grateful that she has the skills she does and wants to work on my site.
i'm expanding my practice to include feng shui, which i've practiced for the last eight years, as well as to serve clients in all fifty states. the really exciting part, however, is also creating a new arm of my business focused solely on community service. i'll be putting the first 10% of all of my profits into a program in service of marginalized families. i'm currently developing the details, and i expect to be able to launch it in the next year, perhaps soon.
it's funny how the things one longs to do all one's life begin falling into place after a direction is chosen. landscape and permaculture design have offered me a vehicle to channel more of my interests together. this should be an exciting and invigorating year. i'm going to stick it out as vice president of acs ( and until my term is up in may and then focus on my project partnership. ( i've designed a kit for our fundraising project that i'm enthusiastic will offer simple ways for people to get involved and learn. acs should be an adequate vehicle for the work i want to do with the marginalized communities in and around portland. if it folds i will find a way to pursue the project via reserving 10% of my profits. there are several models in my head about how to do this.
