How Instagram Saved my Home Office Reorg

As you know I’ve been working on reorganizing my office. In my last blog I issued a challenge to myself. I said that I would have a beautifully organized workspace in the next ten days. Well that time has come and gone and I’m not quite finished with my office, but it’s come a LONG way. Partially because of some really great advice that I received from a professional organizer.

As I typically do after a blog I posted a note on Instagram voicing my frustration and asking my IG folks for suggestions. I don’t get a whole lot of feedback on Instagram, but I usually get a nugget or two that helps me help myself or one of my clients. This time when I shared my struggle my call was answered by the owner of Posh Life Enterprise LLC, a full service professional organizing company that also offers virtual assisting and editing services. Tyra, the owner, posted a simple instruction that changed the way that I approached the whole project.

Over the weekend I made my first Facebook Live video. I knew it was only a matter of time before I made one, but until Saturday I honestly couldn’t think of any topic that I wanted to discuss. Well this weekend I walked into my office to work on a program and honestly just couldn’t do it. There was no way that I could get any work done in my condition. Check out the video on my Facebook page and then read below to learn what I’m doing to fix it.

It's Time for a Change

From time to time I write a blog and I wonder if I’m being too real. I’ve learned that people respect perfection and I’m constantly sharing things to confirm that I am FAR from perfect. I want my clients to feel safe and confident in my ability to assist them so sometimes when I write a blog…like this one…I experience a bit of intimidation. I’m sharing this because someone needs to read it and because I am a real person and I think there’s room for us to learn from each other.  So…

How to Make Friends as an Adult

How to Make Friends as an Adult

My daughter is 12 and quite the introvert. She values relationships, but does not perform the commonly acceptable actions to initiate and maintain those relationships. I’m always encouraging her to reach out to people and express interest in what they’re doing. I want her to have friends, associates and later in life, a professional network. 

Today I was having a conversation with an old friend and she was telling me that she struggles to meet women as an adult. Once you’re no longer in school or playing outside with your friends, she asked, how do you create new bonds? Great question!!!! I gave it some thought and came up with a couple of ideas. This is by all means not an exhaustive list; feel free to add your tips in the comments section.

6 Reasons Your Family and Friends Don't Support Your Business

The other day I was chatting with one of my best friends and success partners. She was telling me about a challenge she was running into with a business venture. She was extremely disheartened because she’d turned to her family for support and one by one they all flat out turned her down or pulled out after committing. She just couldn’t understand how her flesh and blood could turn her down when she wasn’t asking for them to invest anything but their time.

This is such a familiar conversation. I’ve had it a million times. I myself have observed my family and friends sharing other coaches content, events and products on social media while not sharing mine. I’ve created campaigns and asked friends to share my posts or hashtag my events and received very little support. I used to get really upset about this, seemingly lack of respect, for me and my business until I stopped and really thought about why people don’t support their family and friend’s businesses. Here are the five reasons that I came up with:
