5 Morning Rituals for Productivity and Happiness [Video]

Random Chats
Mornings can make or break your day. Oftentimes we have the best intentions the night before. Before we go to bed we think to ourselves, what did I accomplish today? Then, after reflection of the day that got away, we challenge ourselves to wake up renewed and refreshed tomorrow, with a plan to manage the day better. Then we wake up, and after hitting the snooze button we grab our phones to check on emails and social media. Next, we hit the floor running and whatdoyaknow, the day is already running us! We lose track of the best intention we had the night before, the one about starting a new morning ritual. This cycle seems to repeat itself over and over again. While we dream about managing our days better,…

Do Not Let Envy of the Competition Crush Your Progress

Do Not Let Envy of the Competition Crush Your Progress

Random Chats
Have you heard the adage, "don't compare your beginning to another person's middle." It goes something like that... The point of this adage, the reason we have to take heed, especially us entrepreneurs, is that we often see where is a person is today and we play the comparison game. The problem is that we don't know how long that person has been in the game. How many hours they work every week, grinding, sacrificing, investing time and money, etc. We don't know their story or their struggle. All we see is the glory, we don't see the guts.  This breeds that hungry green eyed monster, E-N-V-Y. Envy of the Competition When you’re resentful that your competition has what you’d like to have, or accomplishes what you’d like to do,…

Complacency Will Keep You Broke

Complacency Will Keep You Broke

You’ve heard the story about how if you put a frog in a pot of boiling water, he’ll jump right out. But if you put a frog in water and slowly turn up the heat, he’ll boil to death. While this is a myth, it’s also a metaphor for life and shines the light on how you need to take charge to prevent complacency from setting in. What is Complacency? Complacency means that you’re content with where you’re at in life and with what you’re doing. You’ve found your comfort zone and you’re sticking with it. Being complacent is not a good thing because what it does is keep you stuck exactly where you are. When you’re complacent, you don’t try to learn and improve your skills or your business.…

There is No Technical Task You Cannot Conquer

It’s easy to get frustrated when you come across a technical task that you don’t know how to do. When you’re ready to move forward and get stuck by a lack of know-how, it can start that negative chatter running through your head again:  I'm no good at this? What was I thinking? Why am I even trying to do this anyway? I want some french fries... During times like this we have to keep in mind that no one has all of the knowledge they need to do everything. None of us are born knowing what we need to do.  None of us. We learn as we grow and the same holds true when it comes to being an entrepreneur. We all start at ZERO. I’ll say it again,…

Every Meeting You’ve Ever Been To In 2 Minutes [Video]

Do you take meetings? In person or virtual, how many meetings do you take a day, a week, a month? Maybe a better question is, how much time do you waste in meetings?   Here's the thing, I love a good meeting. Whether working in person writing on whiteboards and eating a boxed lunch, or virtually with a national team working toward a common goal, nothing gets me fired up like a really productive meeting. However... too many meetings are a waste of time that you can't get back. You know the ones: they start late because people were too pre-occupied with watching cat videos to show up on time there are technical difficulties that make half of the meeting a "what did she say?" shit show the agenda and…

I’m Stuck On A Deserted Island, Where’s My Coffee Cup?

I’m Stuck On A Deserted Island, Where’s My Coffee Cup?

I've been exiled to a private island, with glorious animals, crystal clear blue water, and pink sandy beaches. Now what am I supposed to eat? Well, that's the question posed to me, courtesy of today's Just Blog It challenge. So, the five foods I must have on a deserted island are as follows: Cherries. Fresh cherries. Yummmm. Jasmine green tea already sweetened with natural sugar. Hot or cold, this is my favorite tea. I can't live without my tea. Coffee with extra cream and sugar - just in case you wanna bring me a cup of coffee, now you know how I drink it! I've been drinking it all my life, exile will not make me stop. Avocados. I've been on an avocado kick for several months now and it doesn't seem…

Today is Toot Your Horn Day at Just Blog It! We threw in this writing prompt for a specific reason: Most of us are excellent at being too critical of ourselves and are not so good at the opposite. Therefore, we challenged bloggers to share a favorite thing they like about themselves. Now me personally, I give myself kudos and hi-fives daily like I'm on a basketball court. So I had to pick just one thing, hmmm...  where do I begin. I guess one of my favorite things I love about myself is my ability to be a straight shooter and tell it like it is. I don’t do fluff and I am not a hype man (hip hop fans know what I mean). One of the phrases most prospective clients hear from me: "I don't do fluff-n-stuff." I…
