13 November

Today I want to cover some of the fundamentals of how to land your first client.

26 October

If you’re a mom, you have probably, at some point in your life, asked the question, “When is the perfect time to have a baby?” The answer is inevitably, “Never!” We can never be 100% prepared to do something we have never done before.

Owning your path. That sounds like a great idea, right? We’re all on a path, most of them winding, some quite crooked, with a fair amount of bumps along the way. But that path is ours, so let’s dig into what it means to really own it and how we can apply that to our […]

Get organized, be more productive

We’ve all heard the expression “A cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind.” Of course some may counter with “If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, what is the significance of an empty desk?” But I digress. In all seriousness though, I think we can probably all agree that […]

30 Day Challenge: Note Writing

14 July

Recently, I took part in a 30 day running challenge. I ran at least 1 mile every day for a full 30 days. I’d never tried, let alone completed, a challenge like this before. The idea is that the further into the challenge you get, the less likely you are to break the streak. This […]
