Wanna be a young successful entrepreneur? Think again. Owning a business is not what it seems. The stress, the negativity, long hours, no time for family and friends, the lack of support — that’s all it is. So if that’s your forté — then go, run, change the world before you realize it’s a wild, far-fetched dream. I was told by a bank 5 years ago my business plan was not feasible.TRUTH.Real.RAW.Actually that wasn’t the first time “NO” was etched into my soul.I knew at the age of 15 what career I wanted.I spent many lunch hours in the school...

Ever heard, “you gotta stop watering dead plants” ?   Well then, picture this.

Excitement in the air.   And I can’t help, but be proud that over 90% of my holiday shopping was done locally or done by supporting another small business of a close friend or family member. Christmas season is such a touch and go time for a lot of people. It’s all about getting the newest, shiniest, best and biggest present. It’s stressful, expensive and a heartache to some.   Shopping local during this time is a gift for everyone involved.   When you support a local small business you...

Sit back and just listen ~

Truth. Real. Raw. I am so unsure if I am ready for the backlash that is about to follow this post, but here goes. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE if you are easily offended, DO NOT READ. No harm or hurt feelings intended. . . . . You want to know what offends ME? You want to know what really butters my buns? The fact that I have to worry about who I am offending when I say Merry Christmas to my clients. The fact that I am worried that if I put my Christmas decorations up at work and hand out...
