Here's the Truth about Your Journey

In a recent blog post I wrote, I talked about what lessons I learned from working part time as I manage my own business . I am going to tell you yet another lesson I have learned while I am on this daunting journey of self-discovery and growth by working part time: I have learned that it is ok to leave people behind as youre on your journey. Its ok NOT to invite people on your journey with you. A lot of people were not MEANT to be on your journey. Dont feel bad when you leave them behind. You might be wondering what... Read More


Writing during the holidays

Writing during the holidays

Ahh, writing during the holidays! Its my favorite time of year, but maybe not my favorite time of year to write. Why? Because I would rather be out doing something else than writing! Plus its the time of year to be buying and celebrating and partying and having oh so much fun with friends and family! So how do you write during the holiday season with so many distractions going on (like Christmas music, Christmas lights, the urgency to buy more presents for loved ones and mailing Christmas cards!)? You make the time. Yep, I said... Read More

Lessons from a Business Owner who works at a Part Time Job

Sometimes we must do what we cannot stand to do in order to move ourselves, our family, or our finances further: we must partake in getting a job. As much as we hate it above all belief, we know if we dont, then we will sink, meaning our businesses will too. Back in September, I was forced to get a part time job. My husband and I were not in a place financially to pull off a one person income producing job. I could no longer deny the fact that if I didnt get a part time job, we were going to sink and quickly. I hated this fact and I... Read More

How to write professionally when you're sick

This past week I have been dealing with a sore throat and congestion that is sweeping the mid-west states apparently.

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? We will call our friends to ask them who they know, like, and trust to figure out who we should be doing business with. But what happens when its your business that is building KLT with others? 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 .

Maybe you're not into writing,... Read More
