Here’s what I’m offering..

I’m not an influencer. I can apply my make-up with just enough competence not to look crazy. I have no desire to be famous. I haven’t lived among Nepali people in the Himalayas or started a non-profit for underprivileged skate-boarders. I can follow a recipe but haven’t created crazy delicious flavor-combos like tomato-feta pasta (is…

You Called?

Has anyone ever asked you the question, “If you were a millionaire and never had to work again, what would you do?” Whatever you answered: “Fixing cars,” or “Starting a non-profit to help underprivileged carrot farmers,” or “Lay on a yacht all day drinking champagne,” was supposed to be your true calling. A few months…

What I’m Doing in 2016

It’s that time! Time to start fresh and do great things! Holiday binging on Christmas cookies and rum ham is officially unacceptable. It’s time to kickstart the productivity. I must admit, I love the challenge and possibilities that come with New Year’s resolutions. The problem is, by February we’ve forgotten and are back to our…

21 Jump-Start

So, I’m writing a book. Slowly. The whole inspiration/perspiration saying is proving true. The ideas are plenty, but getting them organized and translating them into something useful is frustrating. Yesterday I got to work a little bit early. I sat in my car with my journal and wrote the following Mission Statement in an attempt…

For the past two days I have been watching videos from the Influence and Impact Summit hosted by Michael Hyatt, a NY Times bestselling author, blogger extraordinaire, and the former CEO of…

A New Chapter

I paced back and forth on my parents’ porch yesterday while they were at church.  I could have gone with them, but I’m not a Methodist and their pastor has a slight speech impediment so all I can think while I’m there is “Shufferin Shuccotash”. I’m easily distracted. I wasn’t just pacing. I was praying….

6 Things that Drive Me Absolutely Nuts

Warning : You may think less of me after reading this. Still, this is who I am. It has to be said. I accept the consequences. I regard myself as a pretty laid-back girl. Yes, girl. I’m only 29. However, I guess everyone has certain things that push their buttons. Because you asked, here are…

Why I Write Words

Each morning as I sit down to write, one thought circles around in my head. What do I have to offer? Obviously, as a seasoned waitress,  I could show you how to balance three huge plates on your arm and teach you the difference between Chicken Costoletta ( 3 pieces, asparagus) and Chicken Di Pana…

Own Your Future

In my dream life I am in shape, successful, financially stable, and living in a beachfront bungalow in Nicaragua with man that drives me crazy (in the good way). My actual life is the fourth grade Opposite Day of my dream life. This is because knowing what you should do isn’t the same as doing…
