The Pursuit of Slim -or- Shapewear That Doesn’t Make You Wanna Scream

Don't look at the streaky fingerprints on my mirror. Dont.

A couple of years ago, I decided it would be a good idea to get a real, grown up job. One that required me to sit in an office, wear a blazer, and talk to other human beings, unlike the work-at-home job I’d been dealing with (and since, went back to). The benefits of being…

What’s Cookin?

I have not faded away, I am still here, remember me? Oh my gosh you guys. It’s been a strange couple of months. Strange, wonderful, and eye opening. Turns out, starting a new business, when you’re already working full time, takes up a lot of your energy. Who knew? It’s been really wonderful though, and…

So… Frankincense.

Last week I was in Pennsylvania to be on Good Day Fox Philly with Allie, which was surreal, and more on that another day. In between filming segments, I was going on and on about Frankincense essential oil, which I’ve been doing a lot of lately, and yes, I was getting some eye rolls because…

LTB – Never Stop Trying

Clearly, I understand the importance of shoulder pads in business at a young age.

Therefore, when I’m stressed, I comfort myself with this little saying:  “Time doesn’t…

Let’s Talk Business – Entrepreneurial Rules Were Meant To Be Broken

Making Business Cards

The last time I posted about business stuff, I was hellbent on FINISHING CRAP UP.  I’d finished my logo, and was starting to work on my website, and I had a PLAN to finish the website in about 6 weeks. Well… things don’t always go as planned. As was going through writing the copy, I…

The Practice of Setting Goals and Achieving Them

I am self employed.  Often times, when I tell people I work from home, I hear the same question “how do you stay motivated?”, and the truth is, it IS really hard to self motivate when you don’t have coworkers to keep you on point.  The television is there, the breakfast dishes, the bed, the…
