Seize September

Make March Matter Part VI: #AccentuateAugust wraps up

This free online community was created on February 27th as a way to support entrepreneurs, freelancers and small business owners affected by Coronavirus cancellations.

Our aim is to provide connection, accountability and inspired action. It is a community that brings smiles, cheerleaders and new ideas.

What happened in August?

  • 215 people in the Facebook group . Our doors are always open to new members who need support and community.
  • 9 Regular Meetings –  Monday Morning Accountability Kick Off, Friday Evening TGIF Week in Review. The bookends of the start and end of the week are powerful motivators.
  • 3 Guest Speaker Content Sessions  –”How I became a self-published author in 4 d, 8 wks and 38 yrs” with Angela Ortiz and “Finding Insight through Art: Tangle Pattern Meditation” with Kristen McQuillin and Tracey Northcott at Drawing Meditations, and “The Devil in the Details—the translation game explained” with Phil Robertson of Honyaku Plus – Full Replays of the guest sessions are available at Make March Matter
  • 6 Virtual Co-working Sessions hosted by Katheryn Gronauer and Jennifer Shinkai – lots of supportive brainstorming and motivation happening in these sessions

We will continue into September!

The theme for next month will be…..

Drumroll please……….:


 “Seize September”


We took a little bit of a mental break in August with the Accentuating theme – focusing on shining a light on a few key areas of our lives.

September though is all about the back to school energy, the change of seasons and the chance to harvest what we have sown as well as lay down ideas to take us into winter. Over the next few weeks, the heat and humidity will start to subside, we may have a few typhoons and then we are into the gorgeous autumn season.

So it’s time to Seize the day and the month. I love a bit of etymology (blame my English Literature degree) and I found the root of the word from medieval Latin sacire, in the phrase ad proprium sacire ‘claim as one’s own’.

What can you do to “claim September as your own”? How will you make it special? What will you be able to say “I did it” at the end of the month?
