Food for thought...why do you think movie stars hire agents & managers? For the same reason the extremely profitable independent retailers hire consultants.

I have been in the independent retail business for over 15 years. Having faced many of the issues myself in owning and operating a women’s boutique in my hometown of Clayton, MO for 7 years, I began my consulting practice with high hopes of helping other independent retailers grow and prosper. As a retail expert, I built The Project : Retailing, a multi-channel consulting company that brings my passion & experience to not only my clients but a group of consultants, as well. The foundation of my endeavor is a group of highly successful consultants positioned across the country to help independent retailers grow and build their businesses. With the knowledge, experience and success I brings to my clients, my client base spans across the entire country. I spend my free time as a mentor for Walk With Moly, as well as raising money for local and national animal shelters. I also coach young women looking to start their careers in retail. I currently live in Manhattan Beach, CA with my two furry friends, Handsome Samsam & Bubble.

Very true - put into words I think people who haven’t had a loss yet can understand.

My dad died less than 3 months ago.. and I keep forgetting that I can't call him, that I'll never get another hug, I'll never hear his voice again.

The soul never forgets a loved one. May that be husband, child, mother, father, brother, sister. Aunt, uncle, nephew, niece, friend. It’s never ok to forget them, we carry guilt, sadness, regrets, forever.
I believe that’s part of our obligation as loving human beings, not to forget. There is a lesson in every passing, we can’t let them go, they are forever a part of us. It’s our obligation to hold them forever in our heart or we will turn to stone. We are born with the ability to love and feel the painful emotions of loss, it’s what makes us humans. I lost my nephew, my father, my husband, my mother, my dog, my horse, all in a short space of time, it sucks but I know this, they never left me, I just can’t see them anymore. ❤️

Just had a dream about my dad, woke up and this is the first thing I see. It’s been two years and now most of my dreams about him are me just, hanging out with him. Telling him I love him. You never stop missing those who died

I think of it like the sea. In the beginning crashing waves that almost drown you then it's a calm sea but an occasional wave comes along.

My grandma passed away a month ago and my mom 11 years ago. The pain are both the same, you feel through it every waking day. You go through grief with no shortcuts. It does get better, but you never forget.

What an awesome and honest read... I call recall my mother's and father's death like it was yesterday; my mother passed in 2006 and my father in 2010.

My mum passed away when me and her were in a car accident. That was two years ago and I can’t move past it because of the PTSD from the car accident, I can’t think about my mum in a ‘healthy’ way because it’s always interrupted by thoughts of the accident. I needed this today and it made me feel less alone, thank you!

It is true. It is a chapter in the book of your life. You might have turned the pages, that page still remains. And sometimes small incidents can just flip those pages back right in front of your eyes.
It’s not about being strong or being weak. It is what it is. And that is life.

True. It is better if you can learn to rejoice that you had this person in your life. There are family members of my husband that feel exactly the same way they felt on the day he died. 27 years ago. My kids deserve to remember him for the good dad he was. He did not want people to remember only that he died--his words!!!

I’m working on this. Though I’m not grieving a listed loved one. I’m grieving an old lifestyle. When you get sober you have to go through the stages of grief. I’m not sure where I’m at with that right now. So I keep moving because I travel between the stages so often.

This video is kinda perfectly timed. my father passed away when i was 2 months old. that would be almost 17 years ago. although i never truly knew him, i definitely grieve complicatedly. i didn’t even realize that there was such a thing as complicated grief, but now i know that i resonate with that form of grief. thank you for this
