I have a ? for you ladies, especially for the ones who have jobs outside the home.
When do you guys have time to put so much energy into your blogs( businesses)
If you have husbands and kids(possibly jobs) to look after?
Now I have all 3 and I hardly ever have time to do anything in the way of having

This includes having increased confidence in others, i.e. my spouse. It means not controlling every little thing, letting go sometimes, prioritizing and picking my battles. (I now let my baseboards get dusty -- don't tell anyone! LOL!)
Anyway, check out my blog sometimes and as I start to do more "live" workshops, I'll let everyone know that too!
