I used to suffer regularly from perfectionism paralysis. You see, before pursuing a career in writing, I was a Musical Theater major. Out of 800 applicants, I was selected to join a class of twenty-three students. Conservatory training is rigorous — it has to be, given the number of Broadway hopefuls and the competitive nature of the field. Our . . .
Yesterday, I had one of my all-time biggest epiphanies about customer service and the single best way to win over a client. It started with diamonds. Let me back up. A few nights ago, Mike surprised me with a pair of diamonds studs as an early anniversary gift. Being the ever-savvy money man he is, he told me that the diamonds were actually . . .
So you're ready to launch your company, but you don't know how to setup your business entity. I get it. When I decided to launch The Kind Coalition last summer, Google became my best friend. I had established a business entity once before, but it was five years prior, in a different state, with different rules. I was very bent on hiring a service . . .
Woooo, boy. Sorry I went MIA for a minute, you guys. I have a really good reason for it, but I can't share quite yet. Trust me, this one is worth the wait :) So, for those of you who are new around here, I'm a writer by trade, but I dare you to find one creative who hasn't "paid their dues" with a survival job of some sort. I've spent the . . .
Easy self-care. Is there such a thing? Yesterday morning, I rolled out of bed at 7:45AM, hopped onto a call for work, got right in the car to head to a blog shoot, came home, answered a million and a half emails, made two million calls, handled paperwork, did laundry, sent more emails, answered more calls, took Millie to the dog park, came home . . .
I'm so excited to share my latest find with you guys today - My Sister's Closet! I came across their boutique and fell in love with the clothes. I reached out to them because I knew I wanted to share it with you guys. I just love this polka-dotted dress. The sleeve length is modest and flattering, and the tie around the waist gives the dress . . .
Before we start talking about the cutest romper ever, I have to tell you guys about my latest obsession: the enneagram test. Have you guys taken it? What did you score? I'm going to do an entire post about this and share more resources once I've had time to really sink my teeth into it. All I can say is it's blowing my mind. For anyone . . .
Anyone else have a hard time getting going on a Monday? I took Saturday off but worked the entire day on Sunday, so today feels more like Tuesday to me. But still - Mondays are never easy! (If you need a little kick in the butt, check out my post about working SMARTER, not HARDER!) I have a very specific learning style. In order for me to truly . . .
I had one of those days where it just wasn't going to happen. I woke up early for a call that got canceled. Got on a call with a contractor who nearly 10x their prices since the last time we worked together. Went to the grocery store and left my wallet in the apartment. Honestly, the list goes on. It's ironic, considering yesterday's post about . . .
I recently fell back in love with reading. I know that sounds weird, but it's true. For an embarrassingly long time, I had little to no interest in it. Thinking about it, it's because I wrongfully associated reading with stagnation. I would see other bloggers share posts about all of the books they'd read recently and scoff. I'd think to myself, . . .
