New Year, New Look, New Goals

New year, new look, new goals.

Life has been insane, especially this past year. We sold our house in 3 days. We bought a house. We got pregnant. We had our third daughter. Our dog had two surgeries. We went on vacation to Hawaii and Disneyland and the beach (three things I really like!). We dealt with illness after illness for about 3 months (thanks to kids and their germs). I continued in my home based business, helping others with both product and starting their own business.

And I dreamed of writing, but never quite found the time.

They say you know what is important to someone by where they spend their money and how they spend their time.


If you looked at how I spent my time this past year you could say I was simply trying to survive. Yes, I had planned times for my priorities and good intentions, but sometimes life just “got in the way.”

Here we are at the beginning of a new year. Life is a little less crazy than it was last year. My intentions are different than last year too.

I hope to see you more this year. I hope you like the new look and the new look that is to come in the next months. I hope the content I provide is worth your time.

Besides, the journey to an extraordinaryl life isn’t always easy, but it is worth it.

Here’s to the Journey!

The Creative Meets the Practical

“Where did that idea go?!”

I have had that thought more than once. There is not much more frustrating than having an idea and then not remember that amazing idea a couple of minutes later. I seem to do this in many areas of my life, from an article idea, a new thought regarding a coaching client, down to walking into the other room to do something for one of my kids.

Being a creative type who is always thinking about new concepts on productivity, purposefulness, work-life balance, and leadership, I found I was not capturing the ideas that floated into my brain. Some of my best ideas come when I am doing mindless tasks and the others seem to come during very specific situations. I realized as with everything else in my life, I had to find a practical way to capture my creative ideas.

The Creative Meets the Practical

Being creative in and of itself is great. However, if you can’t capture those ideas to share with others, or even remember it yourself 5 minutes later, it does not good.

Today, I am over at Horkey Handbook sharing some practical steps for generating and capturing your ideas. Join me as we discuss How to Get Ideas for Freelance Writing.

4 Reasons You Need to Finish What You Start

I love to jump at the chance of new opportunities. I thrive in growing myself both personally and professionally. I have always loved to write. In an online community I am in, I came across the opportunity to join a freelance writing course.

As I’ve shared before, we all have something to say. We all have a voice, a message, that needs to be heard. This course, 30 Days or Less to Freelance Writing Success, was to provide a step by step guide to starting a freelance writing career.

Like a lot of things I start, I didn’t quite finish in the amount of time I thought I would. But I vowed to finish the course, and I did!
