Take the Job or Chase the Dream? All In or Not at All


This is a guest post courtesy of Julie. All this talk of empire building recently, and Julie is on a mission to build one of her own. So, I agreed to her submission for two reasons. She has a great story with wisdom to share, and I wanted to help support her by bringing attention to her Kickstarter campaign. It’s hard to put yourself out there into the world, and try to create something out...

5 Tips for Creating Compelling and Inspired Online Content


This is a guest post courtesy of Alessandra (love her name!). It’s a fave sorta topic around BGB land since I am a freelance writer whose biz revolves around online content (just a smidge). Since writing is essentially BGB’s bread and buttah, feeling a bit stuck some days is pretty common. We can’t all be creative geniuses 24/7 right? Hehe  Fortunately Alessandra is to the...

Urgent- Time to Take Stock of Your Personal Inventory Entrepreneurs!


This is a guest post by a dear man named David from The W.O.N.D.E.R. Technique ®. I thought it a suitable follow up to my Thanksgiving gratitude post, as typically the holidays can become a time of year where we as entrepreneurs (and humans) begin to assess where we’ve been and where we are going. Sometimes you might feel down on yourself if you haven’t accomplished everything you set...

Business Lessons From Reality TV Shows – No, Really!


This is a guest post by the lovely Jill Shearer. Since I am a somewhat guilty fan of many reality TV shows (So You Think You Can Dance ROCKS dammit!) I thought this post was a perfect fit for BGB. (Hey, ain’t no shame in my game, how about you?) Reality TV, business lessons and entertainment, oh my! Read it and like it BGB’ers, and then tell me all about it in the comments below. 😉...

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...

How to Get Customer Agreement in One Easy Step


Every sales professional’s goal is to get the customer to agree to purchase what they are offering. It doesn’t matter if it’s face to face, on the phone, or with ad copy.  But to make sure that you are on the same page, you have to do one simple step before you can even close the deal: summarize the motivation of the client. You also may know this as defining the problem.  This is the point...


Cori (that's me!) is a wildly hire-able freelance writer as well as the creative brains and dubious brawn behind this blog you're reading right now, My Name is Cori, & Salt, Light, and Faith. Oh and you might also call her an author. Visit C.B. Stone Books for more.

The best compliment that I can pay Cori is to simply say that “she gets it”.

She works extremely hard to capture the written “voice” that will define your business. Cori intuitively knows how to deliver your message in a voice that is both creative and effective. As a newly-minted small business owner, I rely heavily on both her counsel and her expertise. And on top of all of that, she’s hilarious!
