It’s March 14, 2016. That means tomorrow marks two years since Avant Synergy’s official beginning. However, Avant Synergy had been in the works for years. More years than I even realized, until recently.
As I take a minute to review the last ten years of my life, so much of it was spent preparing for the launch of Avant Synergy, and its subsequent growth. There were many times when I was forced to be patient, and wait and trust. There were many times when I changed things up in life, and took some risks. Sometimes I even took risks with my career that many thought “wouldn’t look good” on a resume – such as switching jobs more frequently than was typically advised. As I look back, I am so glad I received the advice, but didn’t succumb to criticism out of fear (even though that would have frequently been the easiest choice). I am so glad I was able to pray my way through times when I needed patience while waiting for the bigger picture changes to manifest in fullness.
As Dani Johnson says, “Prosper Where You Are Planted” and as Michael W. Smith sings in Sovereign Over Us, “You are Working in Our Waiting.” What amazing reminders to be grateful and content but not complacent. Even during the times of waiting, and the need for patience, we are still instructed to take action.
Avant Synergy has a love for all people; for adding value; for being an encouragement; for moving you Forward, Faster. My faith reminds me of Jesus’ promise to me, and encourages me to run a company in service to others since I believe this promise is for everyone: Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
I am full of gratitude today. Gratitude for my team (Sarah, Emily, Angela), grateful for our Contractors (people truly are our biggest and best asset!), and our amazing Clients – Businesses and Individuals who have trusted us with their livelihoods, goals, and visions – and in turn, fed our goals, purpose, and mission. Personally, I am thankful for my husband, my children, my family, and my friends. Without this incredibly amazing support system, there is no way I would be able to do what I do. And I love what I do.
Happy 2nd Anniversary to Avant Synergy!!!
