Getting Healthy: Small Changes Make a Big Difference

What does getting healthy mean to me? It means making small changes to feel a lot better. I know I can do the 21-day detox because what I have been doing has led me to this. I know my body reacts well to natural remedies and I know I like feeling and being healthier. Here [...]

Getting Healthy: Why I Chose a 21-Day Detox

Turning 40 last year was rough on my ego and, as it turns out, my body. I couldn’t tell you what my top weight was because I avoided the scale. I know my clothes didn’t fit and I am wearing a size I swore I would never wear. In the three plus years I have [...]

You’ve Written a Blog Post. Now What?

You’ve written a blog post. Now what? It’s sitting on your blog waiting for people to find it but no one is finding it. Why? You’re going to think this sounds weird but people want to be told what to do. No one wants to be told what to do….or do they? When it comes [...]

Getting Healthy: Before the Detox

Like so many women, I hate hopping on the scale. We say we don’t care about the number but we do. I always said, “I never want to buy clothes in size X.” When I had to buy THAT size, I knew it was time for a change. In January 2014, after returning from a [...]

Moments of Clarity

Over the last two weeks I have been dealing with a physical issue that is feminine in nature. Before you stop reading, I want you to know this isn’t a medical account of my experience.

Is your social media strategy like throwing spaghetti at the wall?

When I started my business in 2010, social media was relatively new for business marketing. We thought we knew what we were doing; by today’s standards we were just throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what stuck. There wasn’t a plan except to have a social media presence. Today businesses need to have a [...]

5 Things I Learned about Life from Buttermilk

Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day. I learned some valuable lessons from buttermilk. What does buttermilk have to do with St. Patrick’s Day? Everything. It’s more important than corned beef and cabbage at my house. Buttermilk is the main ingredient in my grandmother’s recipe for Irish Soda Bread. In my quest (yes, it was a quest) [...]

Curing Common Misconceptions about Twitter

Just yesterday someone asked me which social media platform was my favorite. I replied, “Twitter, of course.” This answer usually gets me a funny look because so many people have common misconceptions about Twitter including: Twitter is full of garbage. Yes, Twitter can be a dumping ground for plenty of fodder but so can any [...]
