Viva la Vision

Viva la Vision

Viva la Vision. Live your vision. In the middle of January, I found myself in Scottsdale, AZ, for a conference called "Vision is Victory", placed by coach and speaker, Carey Conley. Since I was coaching with her at this time, I upgraded my ticket to VIP so I can attend the extra day on Thursday to hear speaker and coach, Jane Powers , talk about Overcoming Fear (yes, this has been a theme in my life). I started my day on Thursday, January 14, at the bright and early hour of 4am where I was driven down to Denver International Airport... Read More


Loving Yourself Enough not to Isolate

Loving Yourself Enough not to Isolate

February is all about YOU my dear! February is all about LOVE and one thing I want to talk about is how you should LOVE yourself enough to give yourself encouragement, a support system, and tools to get you through any rainy day! I feel that many of us do not take the time to love ourselves properly because we find that "selfish". However, if you and I do not take care of ourselves first, how can we then pour into other people lives? We can't. That's where burnout and stress comes in and no one can pour over when they are in this... Read More

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

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

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

Take That Break!

I dont know about you, but when I start to work, I will miss lunch and dinner just to get that work done! I am very focus like that and all too often I forget to take breaks.

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

Lessons I've Learned From Teaching My First Class

On July 23, 2015, I taught my very first class called Three Ways Writing a Book will Impact Your Business. I learned some very valuable lessons on presenting and what to change to make the next class better. I want to share with you these lessons so you can be the best speaker and expert that I know you are for your unique class you're wanting to teach. You cannot practice your speech too much.
