5 Ways to Build Know, Like, and Trust while Networking

Have you ever heard of the term, Know, Like and Trust (KLT)? What is KLT? Its when we built a relationship with a business and refer that business to others. When we are in need, what do we do?

Sometimes it can feel like youre not making any progress and yet youre putting your energy into networking and getting to know people. But what is... Read More

Adding More Time Into Your Day

National Novel Writing Month is here and if your goal is to have a book done and finished by November 30, then you need to start finding more time in the day. I know that it's hard, trust me . I find myself wandering around and not being focused. There are other days that I think, "I need more hours in the day!" But really what it all boils down to is what's my main priority and does my priority match my goals. If it does not, then my priorities need to change. So how can you find more time today? Maybe you're not into writing,... Read More

So if youre anything like me, you need to take a break. If youre a Take a Break Goddess, then I... Read More

Be Daring Enough to Dream Big with Coach Renee Gray

Today, I want to talk about my friend and coach, Renee Gray. Renee is a business coach and owner of Dare to Dream Life Coaching. She coaches high achievers that are usually CEOs of big companies or powerful people who are in a role of strong influence. She doesnt work with just any CEO or leader, she works with people whose job is to boldly serve others instead of themselves because they know that their business is beyond what they are doing now. One day, I was searching for coaches in my local area and I came across Renees website. I... Read More

A Writer's Review of the 2015 Literary Connection

Every year, Laramie County Community College (LCCC) puts on a Literary Connection where the college invites two authors and speakers to come to Cheyenne to talk with the writing community. This year they invited Allen Kurzweil, author of The Whipping Boy , and poet George Bilgere. Both have been nominated and recognized in the creative writing world. Last year, I attended both days, one being a free day and the next a paid day (only $30) where LCCC has great food, snacks, and all day coffee. I had a good time with my writing buddy,... Read More

Authentic Happiness

Today I want to do things a little differently. I want to talk to you about a book I've been reading. Well, it's more like a devotional book that I have been reading for months now and enjoy every minute of it. Let me introduce you to Authentic Happiness: Devotions for the Slumbering Believer by Sarah Rowan. This book was given to me by my Aunt while I was in Georgia in May 2015. She knew the author for they worked at the same Christian retreat together. My Aunt brought me and my sister the book with Sarah signing it for us. I began... Read More

What I learned in my First Year of Entreprenuership

September marks my one year anniversary since creating Monica Writes and starting out on my own. Since opening, my focus has shifted, my goals have changed, and my horizons has gotten BIGGER. Much BIGGER. I am now on a completely different path than what I was on when I first started. Like all entrepreneurs, we all make common mistakes like charging too little, offering every kind of service we can underneath Gods bright sun to get clients, desperately networking, and not having a niche. But even these mistakes could not have prepared... Read More

The Importance of Reading for Professional Speakers

I have heard it over and over that in order to succeed, you must read. I know what some of you are thinking, I dont have time to read! I may agree with you because I feel the same way.

When you invest into books,... Read More

Stop Living an Unfulfilled Life

Theresa Meyer was struggling. I was really struggling with relationships in my life. It wasnt just romantic relationships, but it was also relationships with my family and friends. My relationships at work were really affecting my life as well. I couldnt hold a job for more than a few years before leaving frustrated and blaming someone at work. She started to notice a pattern in her behavior that was following her around like a plague. I could see patterns of how my relationships were going, even though I was trying really hard to...
