2010 Reflections of Gratitude and 2011 Intentions


OK, so I realize it’s no longer 2010 and this post is a day late and a dollar short. In my defense, I’ve had a lot going on and kiddies underfoot, so finding some time to get things done that I want to get done has been uber difficult.  And does it make me a totally bad parent when I say I am SO glad my kiddies are off to school tomorrow?! LOL No really, I adore them but the two week...

Life Lessons- 8 Things I Wish I Knew Then and What I Know for Sure Now


OK, so this post is inspired by two things actually. One- Farnoosh and Abubakar have so kindly invited me to participate in their Life Lesson’s series, in which 80+ bloggers have shared their own insights and wisdom when it comes to living. Now it’s my turn. Two- Jac’s recent blog post, on the 20 things as a female solo-preneur she knows for sure and you need to know too. Yet more wisdom and I’ll...

Thinking Positive- Hey Crazy… Do You Need Your Head Examined?


What do your mother, New Age “gurus” and pop psychologists all have in common? Just one thing actually! (I hope.) They all encourage you to go ahead and go for broke on anything that’s near and dear to your heart… all those things that you desperately want to achieve. Think about it. Even back in the days when you were just a wee little tot, your mom has probably always been at you to try to be...

The Blog Mastery Award- Who Rocks It Like Kid?


So, the past few weeks have pretty much been a whirlwind of busy-nass and currently no end in sight. Between business, doctor appointments, kids driving me ‘nanas, and subbing in my kiddies elementary school in the autism unit, I feel a bit like a chicken with no head. I’m hoping it settles down in time for the holiday’s though, so say a prayer. 😉 In the mean time, Louise Steiner recently honored...

Why I’m a DORK and Darren Please Don’t Hate Me!


OK BGB’ers… I KNEW I was going to do something like this, and Lord help me, I woke up this morning and realized I did. What did I do?  I freakin’ forgot to add an interview to yesterdays Entrepreneurial Wisdom post!  And it was my interview received from none other than ProBlogger Himself, Darren Rowse! ::insert HUGE frowny face of shame here:: My only defense is that Darren was...

Entrepreneurial Wisdom, Insight, and Inspiration from Some of the Best


Whew!  It’s finally done!  The big masterpiece I’ve been working on for two weeks. lol  I decided to go with one massive post, with the option to download the post as a PDF rather than break it up into a series… that way ya’ll can get the full monty right away rather than waiting over several days. Quick background- I decided to put this post together because of some...

Pipe Dreams are for Losers- Why Not Sculpt Your Own Reality Instead?


I used to be just like my neighbor. He gets up every day, gets dressed, and goes through the motions of his daily morning routine. Then he grabs his keys and heads out the door, off on his commute to wherever it is in this world he happens to work. You know… his J.O.B. And yes, that is a mild sound of disgust you hear (read?) when I say that! See I used to work a J.O.B. too. A hard and...

BGB’s Entrepreneurial Readers Who are Rockin’ It


So you may or may not be aware that I have been “attempting” to participate in the ProBlogger 31 Days to Build a Better Blog Challenge, (Yup that’s an affiliate link!) with the SITSGirls and BlogFrog communities. I say attempting, because even with all those folks participating, I am still about 10 days behind! Regardless, I figured I’d start where everyone else is at and work my way...
