How I Defer From My Distractions

My day to day work changes constantly, being a stay at home Mom/Boss/Entrepreneur.  I think we all have interference in the way of life, but who really sits back and is like okay, “Hold up God, how do I change the direction this ended up turning?”   I used to not see it coming until my husband and I started changing our views on the world. We looked at our lives and prayed for change. Change started showing up, so I kept my focus on those better things in my day. …

Is online marketing for real?

Less than one short year ago, my daughter and son-in-law started talking about “Affiliate Marketing.”  Was this the same as “Online Marketing?” No clue. I myself had no idea, but as I started researching this online “thing,” all I knew, is that there seemed to be a whole different world “online” that I never knew existed. Even though my generation (not 50 yet, but close) works on computers, no one I worked with, and none of my immediate family members would ever believe you can make money online… and I wasn’t…

Not to mention, we didn’t have any commercials, frequently asked questions, or even an app for them to look at. Crazy, right? Can you imagine selling a product or service without a product/service to show? I can. All of those beautiful commercials…

Earn that Sunrise!

“Earn that sunrise! You want it? Work for it!” It’s the day before the Labor Day holiday and I go see a good friend of mine to help him clean his garage and load up some furniture to be donated to Good Will. Anytime we see each other, we talk about how we used to be in shape. How we used to tear up the gym. How we cannot wait to get back in shape again. But, we just spend an hour or two shooting the shit, then go back…

Returning from the Brink – How to Avoid Burnout

According to Merriam-Webster, burnout is exhaustion of physical or emotional strength or motivation, usually as a result of prolonged stress or frustration.
