Sodium has become a dirty word. We are told we must cut out all salt because it raises blood pressure and is very, very bad for us. But is it really? Sodium is one of the minerals we need for good health! We should definitely cut processed, white table salt from our diets and eliminate packaged, processed foods which…Continue

She was 17 years old. All of the other kids around her respected her because she was very popular and kind at the same time. No one was an outcast around her. She laughed easily and smiled often. That’s why I was taken aback by what she told me.
I have a great job. I work full-time at a good company along side people I appreciate. I have benefits and a salary that more than pays the bills. I admire my manager and supervisor. Why then, would I start a company on the side? That is a little unusual...well maybe not to…Continue

The idea first came when I heard the same themes come up over and over again. I would ask my photography friends, "How's business?" Hearing some candid thoughts about the industry made me realize 2 things.
First, the photography industry is saturated with both talented and not-so-talented photographers.
Second, even with it being a challenging industry, many photographers don't have the skill set to market or sell themselves.
Having over 10 years of experience in sales…Continue

I've had this thought on my mind before and thought I'd share it to see if anyone agrees.
I've heard people talk about all the things in life they love. Some love golf, fishing, reading, watching tv, listening to the radio, I even heard someone once say they loved mashed potatoes. Now that may be going too far! Had I said Texas Roadhouse rolls that may have gotten a few…Continue

I thought that might get some of your attentions. According to some of the latest findings, it actually does and will. How can something that is so valued in business and home life be so horribly toxic for our brains? Aren't we getting more done? Aren't we more…Continue
On February 13, 2014, Raleigh lay paralyzed under a blanket of snow and ice. My husband’s ride home from work that normally takes seventeen minutes had taken him more that five hours the previous afternoon. All night annoying beeps had signaled the power’s struggle to stay on. It finally gave up. In the morning, I looked out on a winter wonderland. But the beauty gave me no pleasure.…Continue
I have recently been reminded that not everyone treats customers the same. My goal with this post is twofold: first to remind you how to important customer service is and to ask for your advice.
When you are a content creator or a franchisor you have built a brand and the reputation it entails. That platform is essential for long-term success and you should want to protect it.
When you are the affiliate or franchisee you are using someone’s brand and/or building off their…Continue
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about perspective. Friedrich Nietzsche is quoted having said, “There are no facts, only interpretations.” The older I get the more I embrace that thought. Madeleine L’Engle says her absolutes are The Ten Commandments. I would agree with that thought. I used to think there were a lot more absolutes but life has taught me to think beyond my own capacity to understand and accept other lifestyles, beliefs and understandings. I don’t know all the…Continue
Hi, have a hard time finding contacts for companies.. any suggestions? also what do you do if after you send an intro letter, you get a response asking you to go to the company website?
Sunday morning I woke up thinking about the people who have influenced me. I have a handful of key people through the years who have impacted me. Think about those people who have encouraged you, believed in you, and invested time in you, and thank God for them. If you can, thank them in person. Don't have any good mentors? Here's a poem, author unknown, that I memorized years ago:
Behind my life the weaver stands and works His wondrous will
I leave it in His all wise hand and…Continue
Many times when I see things written about supplements, the negative stated is that they are “unregulated” and can be hazardous to your health. Well, is that really true? I see commercials for drugs every single day and the list of possible negative side effects mentioned is longer and scarier than the condition…Continue
A father took his son to the circus and as they walked towards the big top they saw the elephants and they were being held by only a rope tied to their leg. The son looked at his father and asked how such a piece of rope could hold a large elephant.
"Well," he said, "when they are very young and much smaller they use the same size rope to tie them and that age it's enough to hold them. As they grow up, the elephants believe that they cannot break the rope so they never try to break…Continue

I have a unique skill. This skill comes completely naturally and I have no idea how to teach it to you. (You can let go of your wallets and purses. There will not be a class, webinar or eBook on this skill.) When I tell you what it is you will not see the value in it but by the end of the post I think you will regard me as a great thinker. At least I will think that you think that I am a thinker!
It was just a few days after a second record breaking snow and ice storm hit the Atlanta area, when I was walking through the woods near my house and saw this:
Isn't it amazing how something so beautiful and promising as a bouquet of jonquils can…Continue
Something funny has happened to me these past few weeks...sleep has become the enemy. Really the only enemy I'm battling right now - and, believe it or not, I see that as a good sign.
Now, don't get me wrong, lack of sleep is totally unhealthy, and Dan always talks about (and I agree with) the power of balance and restoration in our lives. But the fact is, I've gotten so excited, so motivated these past few weeks, that I just have so many different ideas, thoughts, and projects…Continue
