So What’s My Secret To Staying Happy AND Sane In The Midst Of So Much Going On?
Admin Text-Only Editing - Text Only Admin

While there ARE moments when the enormity of all that’s going on feels a bit overwhelming, the truth is, everything is flowing into place as if by magic.

The secret is to have people around you who love you. Right now feels like an old fashioned barn raising to me. Every one of my family is pitching in to help out, my team is pulling their weight, my husband Richard is working his butt off and I’m dishing out gratitude like candy canes at Christmas.

The Grateful Life of a Solo Entrepreneur
Terri Zwierzynski - The Solo-CEO: Content Marketing Strategist

Warren Whitlock’s recent blog post, Do You Want the Life of An Author?, really cracked me up! Aside from the humor, it’s also a commentary on how a mindset of gratitude can affect the choices we make as solo business owners — and how we feel about our lives and businesses at the end of the day.

His story could be a day in the life of just about any solo entrepreneur who works from home…and I’m sure there are lots more fun stories like this out there (please do share below!)

Thanksgiving – The Gift in Itself
Admin Text-Only Editing - Text Only Admin

When so much time is spent each year on acquiring more or worrying about not having enough, it is refreshing to have a day set aside as a reminder to take stock and count your blessings. Have you found yourself feeling a little down lately? Are your thoughts centered from a place of lack? Are you feeling the beginning of winter blues? If so, there is no time like the present to begin your “Giving Thanks List”.

Twitter: Why a Long Username is NOT in Your Best Interest
Sandra P. Martini - Business Growth & Marketing Expert

Have you noticed that while many people user their names for Twitter (a great idea in my opinion), some use much longer usernames, such as their first name and the name of their business.

For example, SandyAtMyBusinessName

What’s wrong with this?

While having your name and your business name is a great idea for remind people who you are, with Twitter, it’s too much.

LAW OF ATTRACTION: The Law of Attraction
Admin Text-Only Editing - Text Only Admin

Are you aware of what a powerful creator you are? Do you know that everything that is happening to you or has ever happened to you is, without exception, in full response to your thoughts – and more importantly – the emotions behind those thoughts? Take a look at your life. There are probably some areas you’re really happy with and some areas you’re not so happy with. You may even believe you are a victim of your circumstances. I’m here to tell you, you are not a victim! It’s simply a matter of understanding how to play the Game (of Life) by understanding the rules…the Laws that define the Game.

Would you agree that whether you believe in the law of gravity or not, it exists? It is the same with Universal Laws. They exist and affect you whether you are aware of them or not. However, Universal Laws are far more powerful than gravity. Gravity affects earth. Universal Laws are infinite and beyond all boundaries.

Tortoise or Hare — Which Describes You? And Why “Neither” is the *Right* Answer!
Sandra P. Martini - Business Growth & Marketing Expert

We’ve all heard the famous story of the tortoise and the hare and their legendary race.  Not knowing the outcome, who would have ever put their bet on the tortoise?

When it comes to managing and marketing your business, it’s more important to pick a few things to do consistently rather than flitter about doing the latest, “greatest” or sexiest things out there.  You’ll be a whole lot more effective this way.

So does that make you a tortoise or a hare in your marketing?

Actually, neither are ideal.

Let me explain. . .

PW and the Badger
Michele Pariza Wacek (Michele PW) - Love-Based Biz Strategist and Copywriter

That’s me with Bucky Badger, the mascot for the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We were getting ready to cheer the Badgers on to victory against the Fresno State Bulldogs.

That was our last win so far of the season.

It’s been a disappointing season so far for Wisconsin football, as both the Badgers and Packers are on losing streaks. Hopefully they’ll get themselves turned around this weekend.
