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. Seriously, my poor cousin from Georgia went out to Nevada with her husband and she picked it up! Pressure in my head that acts like a fog, cant think, my throat is sore, and I just felt tired! And you know what? The work was piled SKY HIGH for me to do! I have a free webinar coming up ( you can sign up here ), I need to finish getting ready for that, I had a client wanting to me edit a blog, I got another call from a... 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

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

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. You might think, Who needs a break when theres work to be done?! What I have noticed about myself is when I dont take breaks, especially when Im working on something, thats when I begin to make mistakes. In my line of work, I cant afford to make too many mistakes. So if youre anything like me, you need to take a break. If youre a Take a Break Goddess, then I... Read More

Now or Never November

You may have been hearing about this Now or Never November program I've been talking about of late.

Last year, over 300,000 writers joined in on the journey from all across the nation. This is an event that is taken all over the world! I know that Libraries are getting in on it as my local library is having their... 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


Does Meditation and Writing Go Hand in Hand?

Does Meditation and Writing Go Hand in Hand?

Today I'm discussing how meditation and writing goes hand in hand. As writers, we tend to get stuck frequently, feel like our writing is boring, or come to a halt because we have ran into a problem and cannot think through it. Meditation can help with this as we quiet our minds and relax. I believe as a writer myself, I'll start a dialogue in my head or compare my work to others or even myself on a good day! I want to write my best for every person I work for, but sometimes I feel like I can't give my best because I am not really... Read More
