Comparison? Or Kick in the Arse?

"There is always something to suggest that you'll never be who you wanted to be.  Your choice is to take it, or keep on moving."  - Phylicia Rashad

Ahhhh, yes.

Anyone else feeling this? 

Happy February y'all. 

It's the beginning of a new month! And for me, it's like a mini new slate.  And yes, I use that new slate for a new week, a new day, a new hour, and a new hot minute when it's needed.  

January is over and we are starting to thaw out - ...

Do you Fall into this Statistic?

So, I'm thinking Hell Froze Over...

(Never mind that most of the country has experienced record temps today.)

I'm not usually a numbers gal.  I mean, I've counted in multiples of eight most of my life and I always enjoy a few extra zeros in my checking account.  But these numbers blew my socks off!

So I just had to share with y'all what I learned this week.  Perhaps you're ahead of the game on this, and if you are - gold star for you.  But I wanted  to talk...

Burn Out or Pivot?

Ugh. Why is this so hard?

It's what I have always wanted to do... and yet, here I am. Nearly in tears.

The roller coaster of emotions with business-hood.

We've been taught, if we are't growing we're dying. And y'all, I subscribe to that 1000%.

'Cept, here's the deal.

When is enough of enough?

When does one go, "Ok, you have enough projects, venues, aspects of your business. Now let's just stop."

But if you stop... then you can't grow, and here we are again. Back on that hamster wheel.

Or...

I'm No Instagram Hack, but I'm kinda psyched about this tip.

Don't you just love a good tip?  Something that will save you time, or help your business in a way that you didn't know you needed?  

Especially a FREE one? 

Yea, me too. 

Today we're going to talk about one of my favorite social media platforms.

I love getting those beautiful photos of inspiration or stories of people living their dream.  

But we're not going to talk about the pictures, or captions, or videos, or stories.  We're going to chat...

Happy NEW  Year! 

Yes!  2019?  Do you remember when this date seemed like it was forever away?  Yes... I'm dating myself a bit.  But here we are.

It's the New Year and I'm sure yoy've got a list of Goals or Desires for 2019. I know I do.  

Today is Wednesday, January 9th.  And this is when those New Years Goals may start to fall to the side or get all up in your face difficult. 

But I must share what I woke up to this morning.  On my...

What's Your 1 Word?

So here we are!  The last weeks of 2018!

(And it's totally ok if you are thinking FINALLY.)

The week before Winter break is always so intense.  I recently came upon this cute picture and am using this week in my social media posts. I just had to share! 

 

I hope you can laugh, only because it's true right?  BUT, hopefully the added "to do items" bring a smile on your face, because for the most part... they are "fun."  I know I'm a bit biased because being a mama...

10 Steps to Start 2019 STRONG!

It's December 11th today! 

Yikes.

We have about 21 days yet to the end of  the year, and for some, the thought of throwing in the towel sounds lovely.  

"Put a fork in me. I'm done."

Whatever business goals have been set for 2018 are done. And, if they didn't quite hit the mark, they will go on the list for 2019.

Again. 

I'm there. 

I get it.  There are a couple goals that I'm slightly irritated about putting on the "2019 Goal List" yet again.

You know that...

So... Did anyone else have a tough week last week?

I'm actually still a little sore about it, so I'm gonna tread lightly. 

Last week was the first week back after Thanksgiving, and let's just say it felt "off" from the moment I started my Monday which started waaaay too early. (I had a red eye from Seattle at 12:32am.)

I don't know about you, but I was a bit melancholy. I couldn't place my finger on why.  The Holiday weekend was awesome, so I basically was chalking it up to a...

Are You Making this 1 Mistake?

IMG_0671.jpg

We're back after a beautiful long weekend in the States and I have been thinking about this post for a few weeks.  So it might come across a little bossy. 

 
I'm not usually confrontational. 

I like avoid those awkward moments and just quietly walk away.   But as a business owner, I see this happening, and I wanna kinda yell out,

"You're missing an Opportunity!"

So I'm "yelling it out" here. 

I hope you can hear me :)

And before I rant, I need to tell you...

One Thing You Need to Remember...

Happy Thanksgiving! 

(and to those of you who aren't states side... Thanks for checkin' in.)

It's my favorite holiday.  Family, Friends and lots of great Food... and a simple, but so important theme.

Give. Thanks. 

I'm going to breathe that in and out this week...no matter what "dramatics" happen.  And let's face it... there are usually some hi-jinx and mayhem when you bring family, friends, and a huge feast that needs to all be timed out and presented "perfectly."
