Details schmetails

Schmetails Okay, I know “schmetails” isn’t a real word…but I wanted to send you something this week to make sure you turn that “to-do” list into a “to-done” list. I heard this quote when I spoke in Boise, Idaho earlier this month. Similar to “done is better than perfect,” it’s been helping me out a…

Soooo…are you spoiled?

The video called me out on all my excuses. I recently watched a YouTube video about social media. I used to watch a lot of videos when I started in digital marketing almost 6 years ago because I didn’t know much about it and I felt so behind. Your girl was on every training video,…

What does your fear sound like?

Fear is a tricky thing. It can prompt us to take action or even turn away. It can make us run from it or run to it. But, can I be honest? In business, I get scared all the time! Right now I’m in Boise, Idaho at Craft + Commerce, an event hosted by an…

Stop, Look, and Listen Before You Panic

I was a 17 year old high school junior when it first happened. The darkness of the morning was present and still. I was sick with a fever, ear infection, sinus infection, and severely dehydrated as I had not been able to digest any food in days. I found out a former classmate had committed…

Helping Others By Simply Sharing Your Gifts It’s crazy how meeting new people can really change your perspective about how you share your gifts and your problems in casual conversation with complete strangers.

Think Ahead, Plan Ahead

Take your mind off the stress of life

I don’t know about you, but it seems like there’s so much noise going around lately. Good, bad, or indifferent…it just seems like there’s a lot of stuff, doesn’t it? There are obligations, RSVP’s, work, graduations, goals, projects, side hustles, commitments, responsibilities…and the list goes on. I’ve been feeling it lately, too. So last week, I…

Omelette, anyone?

Can you believe 2018 is almost 50% complete? We’re already in the second quarter of the year, “sprummer” is upon us (because this weather is playing all types of games, I’m not sure if it’s Spring or Summer), and it’s May 6th…MAY 6th! Any who, I wanted to bring you a quick blog post after I read…

Premium Gas ONLY!

Have you ever heard of the term, “Gas me up?” According to Urban Dictionary, it was first penned by the modern day philosopher, Drake. Where it originated from is not important, but amongst my circle of friends, we use that term to compliment and overwhelmingly encourage one another. Now, I said overwhelmingly encourage for a reason. When we…
