As a business owner, you have a lot to juggle. And it’s likely you are constantly keeping an eye on your bank account to see how much money you have available. But how do you know if you’ve received all the funds from each day’s sales? Did the merchant processor transfer the payments that were due for that day? Were cash deposits made by your manager on time?
Record Your Revenue Every…Continue

Last night, I met a three week old baby. Baby’s are so sweet and cuddly. As I was driving home it struck me all over again how utterly dependent babies are on someone else to take care of them. There is absolutely nothing they can do for themselves — not getting dressed, not finding food, not even comforting themselves. It all has to come from some other place. So my question today is who takes care of you? Well, of course you do. You are the one who takes care of you. The better…Continue
You might not know Ken Davis, but he is an amazing guy. Ken made a career out of being funny…not vulgar funny; clean funny. His quick wit and insightful comments endear people of all ages to him. His book, Fully Alive, came out at a very significant time in my life. I credit its principles with motivating me to escape the curse of…Continue

Do you recall the character Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada? She was constantly giving orders and many at one time. She could rattle off tasks faster than her new protege, Andy, could even capture at the beginning. If Andy started asking questions regarding the assignments, she would quickly get a less than desirable answer, sharp remarks, and a stern look from Miranda. An example of this is when Andy…Continue

I don’t know where you are fitness-wise. Perhaps you have always exercised and stayed active. Maybe you had an injury or illness that has kept you from being quite as active as you’d like. Maybe you don’t like exercising and your job is sedentary so you don’t move a lot.
Staying active both physically and mentally are keys to staying young!…Continue

Learning to stick to a budget can be a little hard at first. It’s not really something that comes naturally to most people. Struggling to maintain a budget for your money is actually pretty common when you’re just getting started. But when you know the…Continue

"Insist on yourself; never imitate. Your own gift you can offer with the cumulative force of a whole life's cultivation, but of the adopted talent of another, you have only an extemporaneous, half possession." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
How do we answer this question of "Who am I?" Most of us would simply state our name as our answer, but if the person asking us who we are still has a puzzled look on their face we have to include some more detailed information such as "I'm the man…Continue

Side hustle. Hobby business. Part-time freelance work. These are all different phrases used to describe the same thing. I happen to like side hustle because it encapsulates the essence of what's required to achieve success—hustle. Hustle means to move or work in a quick and energetic way. We hustle when we are passionate about something.
My side hustle hasn't always been the same thing.…Continue
A few years ago when I was on a weight loss journey I started this blog. I enjoyed having a place to share my experiences with others; but at some point, I felt like I just didn’t have anything more to say. However, there has been a stirring in my soul for quite some time now. This stirring is telling me I do have something I need to say; and I have something others need to hear.…
(Hey guys, I know this is a repeat but Novel Publicity picked it up and ran it. So I wanted to share it, not only for those who haven't seen it yet, but also to show you another site on which you can guest post! Take a look here. Thanks!)
Do you have scary dreams? I'm not talking about what happens when you sleep; I'm talking about your vision for the future. As you look ahead, does your vision scare you? Are your dreams powerful enough to challenge your daily choices? Our brains aren't wired to pursue things that scare us. In fact, it's just the opposite. Our brains, if given the chance, will seek the path of least resistance. Our brains make great couch…Continue
Do you remember learning how drive? You probably started by observing your parents or others driving. Then you may have taken Driver’s Ed in school. You read the text book and the official driver’s manual for your state. You took your test for your learner’s permit. You watched videos in class. Then you actually got into the car with your instructor and started driving. You practiced driving in town and on the highway. You learned how to parallel park. Then you went to the Department of…Continue

If you've ever playing the game Battleship, you know that the winner is the person who sinks the other player's ship. However, a battleship is almost never sunk the very first time. It takes many decisions by each player to take the ship down.
It is the same way in business. Unless there is a catastrophic event, businesses fail gradually. It takes many…Continue
Last week I was talking with a colleague when she blurted out,"There's so much out there, I feel like I am just adding to the constant bombardment and I'm just not sure about it. Somedays I just want to cover my ears and hit delete."
If you depend on getting traffic to your site via social media ( who doesn't?) then you may feel a similar overwhelm when it comes to connecting.
The real problem with having the world at your fingertips (via phone or keyboard) is that it truly can…Continue
Hitting your funny bone is not funny! I remember one time during a football game in high school when my funny bone got hit pretty hard. I couldn’t believe the pain that my entire arm was in. Football wise, it was not a hard-hit, but it felt like a lightning bolt hitting my arm.…Continue

When you don't want to do something, a number of excuses will work. That's been my experience in working with entrepreneurs who should be selling courses online. They don't want to do it so they make up excuses. You might be one of them. So, let me challenge you to think differently.
You have a lot of information. You are an expert at many things. And there are people who are willing to pay you to teach them what you…Continue
