Why are we so busy? “I’m so busy, I met myself coming back!” One of my high school English teachers used to always use that phrase in class. Have you ever taken the time to analyze why you feel so busy? Is it a good busy or a bad busy? And why do we feel […]
At the end of 2012, I knew some things were going to have to change in my business. What got me to where I was, wasn’t going to get me to the next level. Fear led to doubt, doubt led to confusion, and confusion led to inaction. Have you been there? Even though I had […]

Are you a starter or a finisher? Are you a builder or a maintainer (not even sure if that is a word)? I love to start things. I love to run with new ideas because it seems more exciting than what I’m currently working on. However, over time you will become overwhelmed with the “pot […]
Back in early 2010, I quickly became overwhelmed. I was figuring out how to earn money blogging while still having a day job. I saw a new opportunity to make money so I went for it. The worse thing happened next. It was a huge success. I was not prepared for how I was going […]
Are you failing to start? Are you sitting on the sidelines waiting for permission to get in the game? Well, can I infuse a truth into your life today? You’ll never be fully ready. The only solution is to start before you’re ready. I know that’s painful to hear. I know that means you may […]
Have you ever started a project at home which led to another project and then another? Before you knew it, you had an endless sea of home projects all going on at once. Why am I telling you all this? Because that’s been my summer. We’ve been involved in doing many, many projects at home […]
