If you can’t tell which tab you are on, change to contrasting colors.

Have you ever been so frustrated with the behavior of your childd, I mean computer😉 that day in and day out there is an issue you haven’t been able to solve? Periodically attempting to find a solution, but giving up and just living with it.

After numerous searches, I finally found the solution. Easy fix, but so hard to find the answer on the web.


With all the tabs the same color, it is hard to figure out which tab I am on. When shopping, I open multiple tabs to compare products. …

A Day Countless Parents Can Relate To

It was just another Friday in the weekly cycle of schlepping to and fro, trying to squeeze work in between. But this one was different.

Add a level of exhaustion… too many commitments and the holiday break a week away.

“HAVE A GOOD DAY!” said the crossing guard which made laugh knowing the next two activities were a call with the Accountant and getting a tooth fixed. Both went smoothly except for the unexpected expenses.

Time to head back to the school and race to after school activities.

On the way, my 20 year old car decided to add some…


Surviving The Early Stage Of Business Ownership

Many entrepreneurs answer the question of why they went into business with either their passion or the need for an income. The problem is, there is so much more to it.

We enter into business with a particular skillset. Some of us are experts in one area. Some of us are a Jack of All Trades, Master of None.

The true winner in the Entrepreneurial landscape has a mindset that combines the …

Prepaid Salon/Barber Services Don’t Work And Here Is Way

As a Salon Owner, I was constantly trying to figure out how to bring more people through the door Our franchise had been using prepaid formats like “Buy 5 get the 6th Free” . It was thought this would increase frequency, but it didn’t.

In an era where customers have very little extra cash, they treated this deal as a cost savings and the time between haircuts was getting longer every year.

Did you know that this type of deal appears as a liability on your books?

If you close your business unexpectedly, technically you owe all those outstanding haircuts…

June 2019, I was browsing the female Entrepreneur Facebook groups and saw the word “Funnel” mentioned a few times. I asked a friend about it and was pointed to a class called the “One Funnel Away Challenge”.

With the desire to bring home and income, I jumped in excited for the chance to learn new technology and possibly make money. My sole goal for the year was to find a way to an income.

The class was amazing.

People ask if the class is worthwhile… YES!

Will you hit the jackpot and bring in money after? A few do but…


A Special Day In My Honor

What would this holiday look like?

First, every holiday has a name.

Let’s brainstorm together…

What should I call a holiday that celebrates belonging?

How should we celebrate? Should all friends and family be in one place together or stretched out in a fashion that allows me to spend time with each and truly catch up with them.

I think my holiday would need to be a multi-day holiday. Should it be a month long? No, better, it should be cyclical and come around on a monthly or quarterly basis.

It would be a mandatory day to stop and smell…


Call It Insight, Call It Soap Box, Call It My Two Cent


In 2019, I was introduced to Medium and other social media formats for building a following. While I am comfortable on camera and I found the most comfort in writing.

I am grateful for discovering Loom, a video capturing tool that allows me to teach visually step by step instructions.

I love the written word because I can think about my words before sharing my thoughts.

Focusing On Emotions And Motivation Instead Of Actions

Photo by Priscilla Du Preez on Unsplash

Take a moment to think about the question…

What Would Be Your Motivation If You Could Erase One Incident From Your Past?

What feelings does it bring up? What motivation does it elicit?

Guilt for something you had done to someone else?

Jump back before a mistake was made so you can make a different decision?

Regret of a path you wish you had taken?

A chance to try again on something?

I don’t dwell on the past, but I do wish I had picked a different career path.

I have always been jealous of the people that knew early on what they wanted to career-wise. For some, they excelled at…
