“We should just be thankful for being together. I think that’s what they mean by ‘Thanksgiving,’ Charlie Brown.” — Marcie
I haven’t even finished eating all of my Halloween candy!” — Sally Brown
Hello Bloom family!
I’m going to start by hanging a lantern on current events and say: no matter what happens as a result of this week, YOU are in control of the response.
We each hold so much power, whether the outcome of the election is what you were hoping for or not. Know that I’m here for you, I’m beyond grateful for you, and we’re going to keep Blooming and growing together.
Speaking of growing, I have a lot to share with you including some exciting news, as well as improved ways that we will work together in 2021.
So good grief, let’s get on with it!
PPP Loan Forgiveness
Update for loans under $50k
On October 8th, the SBA announced that PPP loans for under $50k now will require a shorter application for forgiveness. Additionally, those that qualify may receive full forgiveness even if they reduced staff or reduced wages and salaries during their covered period. For more information, check out the SBA website.
Call Me Maybe?
The ZP Associates contact info is no longer valid!
Just a friendly reminder that my email addresses are now firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, and our old ZP phone number no longer works.
If you need to call/Zoom and go over anything, you can skip the email process and set up a call using this link, which always lives on our website.

Let’s Talk Boundaries
Help me help you
I recently did a thing that felt SO uncomfortable – I deleted my work email off my phone! I found myself checking emails at stoplights, at the dinner table, in line at the grocery store… and I found that as a result, important things were falling through the cracks.
So, this is a friendly reminder that I will only respond to work-related emails and calls during regular working hours, and on Saturdays during Tax Season. Please refrain from texting me and send an email instead – I’ll be able to reply when I’m in my workspace rather than see it when I’m spending time with my kids and husband.
I hope my emails brighten your mornings
One last thing…
What are you grateful for?
I try to vocalize my gratitude practice each day, but Thanksgiving is a great time to share it. If you want to, send me an email back and tell me something GOOD.
Happy early Thanksgiving, everyone!
Sending good vibes and apple pies,
