How many times have you said there are not enough hours in a day?
I work for myself.
My time is my own.
So why am I always working?

self-employment can also mean:
- Less job/income security without a steady paycheck
- A lack of accountability for business goals

I have noticed that I am more productive on days when I wake up early (5am) than I am on days when I “sleep in,” which for me means 7-8am. It’s decadent to lie in bed and pull out a book – or to be honest my cell phone – and aimlessly scroll through my…
I recently completed my first “12 Week Year.” Overall, it was a productive and more importantly, focused experience. I was able to connect my daily tasks to some overarching goals, and to think about other long-term goals for the next year. To Grow or Not To Grow As an entrepreneur, I love connecting with other…
I am in a new phase of life, commonly referred to as “The Empty Nest.” I dropped my youngest child at college last year and am adjusting to what this means for my life and my business, and how these relate to each other. It seems fitting to pay more attention to the decisions I…
