Being willing to suck...

One of our show experts, business coach Tina Dietz mentioned a common mistake starting entrepreneurs make - Waiting too long to launch; thinking that collecting information and becoming an expert will create a “perfect” time to start. Instead - "being willing to suck until you suck less".

Is it Finally Time to Lose Your Virginity?

Seriously, Make this the year you truly lose your virginity. Well, maybe not your sexual virginity but your, "I want to do something different with my life," virginity or your " I have an idea but I just don't have time to get it started." virginity, or maybe your "This job sucks but where else am I going to make this kind of money?" virginity, or your, "I'm too old, too scared, too set in my ways," virginity or my personal favorite, "I always wanted to____" virginity.

As long as the…

Start-up Blues

A short time ago I was at a crossroads and I knew I could not go on working for the company. My talents and ambition were choking and dying. It was a great company, and I was productive in that roll (for the company) but it was not a fit for me. Making that transition was a huge deal.

Big thanks to Dan Miller for his book "48 Days To The Work You Love" along with the weekly podcasts for giving me the permission to break the mold. I've also benefited from entrepreneuronfire.com…

Our Journey Begins

For over 35 years I’ve worked my business. Sometimes I’ve had great success, and others – not so much. I’ve asked questions like “how should I do this”, or “does anyone know what’s the best to do …” but it was often like shouting into the forest. Could anyone else hear me? Not usually. So, then I would sit down at the computer, or go to the library and start digging into the whys and how fors of creating something beneficial for me and for my business.

 Even those of us in…

Over Consumption Leads to Blockage


Thanksgiving is a time where we over-consume our favorite meal. We may enjoy the food so much that we eat more on that day than any other day of the year. After consuming so much food all I want to do is nap. It even hurts to move sometimes. I find it interesting that food is supposed to…

The little Kindle book that earned me $29,000 in five months

On February 4, 2013, I published a collection of novels by Lucy Maud Montgomery entitled “The Anne Stories.” These novels are legally in the public domain, meaning they are no longer under copyright. My collection featured eight books from the “Anne of Green Gables” series. I also included three lesser-known but well-written books by Montgomery. (I have since added one more book of poetry and a collection of 142 short stories.)

I sold the entire collection as a…

What to do, what to do...

I am exploring the possibility of some kind of coaching and trying to figure out what that would look like for me and my family.  I don't have much entrepreneurial spirit and I've always tried to fit into conventional careers- schoolteaching, youth pastor, and numerous failed call center and retail type jobs.  My father is a post Depression era child and my mother is a Boomer.  I'm a Gen Xer introvert.  So they couldn't really talk to me about starting my own business.

So I'm scared…

Don't Let this Be You!

Dan Miller must have read my mind. What perfect timing to read his blog.

As some of you know, I was recently laid-off by the organization I gave nearly 32 years of my life too. I am 56 years-old and between my age, health and spending years in a job that wasn't advancing my skills towards modern techniques with asset management and purchasing, I basically became a master of nothing.

You may read the story…

It Is Not Just About The Money

Before you take the leap and start a business, ask yourself, “Why am I starting this business in the first place?” Does this reason excite you? This reason needs to be more than money, as this will probably be the last reward for your hard work. Yes, you want to you start and own a profitable business but you need to have reasons other then money to motivate you in those challenging times.

There are many reasons why you might want to start a business. The most obvious one––according…

The best way to start a business...

Years ago I decided I wanted to be a financial coach. I built the website, started blogging, and slowly put all the pieces together to take on my first client. 

When the time finally came and I was ready to open the doors I was excited. I'd worked hard on this and the first step was exciting!

Except for one thing...

No one else seemed to notice. Or care. 

I've seen this same thing play out over and over with friends and fellow 48days members. Great idea. Valuable…
