I have been trying desperately to streamline my life, including my business. As you may have seen, I have updated some of my changes for 2017. If not, I would be glad to send you a direct link for your review, but in a nutshell, I’m trying to get clear and consistent on what I do, what it’s worth, and how making these improvements, as evidenced by previous changes I’ve made will further allow me to streamline my workflow, increase productivity, and decrease stress.

Certain things come into play, however, that are difficult to track without imposing a delay, and some things require that I outlay either time, or funds, in trust, and because I .

I am confident that I have demonstrated both absolute willingness and ability in several areas to do whatever is asked of me within the scope of my particular skills. I am there for you and anyone else in the Summerhill organization who requires what I provide, typically within mere moments of being asked. When the assets and/or direction I need are actually available or “iron clad”, I am able to deliver quickly and consistently.

Unfortunately, in addition to the hours of gratis that I have tracked, such as everything I have ever done for Organic Okanagan, there are untold hours that I have not. This is a result of my desire to be committed, available, and ready to deliver on a moment’s notice whenever needed, and having done so now for 2+ years, I would respectfully request that we have an agreement. It need not be the “full time” commitment I was asked to design and presented to you and Eric in December 2015, but rather, a consistent “base”, from which I can account, whether +/- when calculating actual totals, with an arbitrary, non-accounted amount, to cover at least some of the accumulated incidentals. I can tell you that on average, over the last 24 months, between my “Summerhill” and “Stephen Cipes” accounts, I have averaged about $1,500 per month in billed time and/or reimbursements. Perhaps we can use this as a starting point to determine what a consistent, monthly commitment might be moving forward, bearing in mind that there are presently (a) outstanding amounts owing, approved to be paid as of 3 weeks ago, that have not yet been paid, and (b) outstanding invoices to be completed, covering work completed since the beginning of November 2016.

To be EXTRA SUPER DUPER clear: I remain INCREDIBLY grateful for EVERYTHING – most importantly your friendship, and would not want ANYTHING to jeopardize that relationship. I am merely standing up for myself, my needs, the needs of my family, and streamlining across the board with everyone I have the pleasure of working with.
