It's really tough when you start out doing anything new. It can sometimes feel like you want to throw in the towel and just quit. You might be starting an online business, writing a book, growing your blog or even just thinking about what direction to take.
Because I have BEEN there...and I know how to break through.
1. Write or market to one person.
While it might seem scary to pick one specific person to be your target reader or target market, if…Continue

I was involved in a major hair catastrophe last night.
I'm not sure where the urge came from but suddenly over the weekend I decided that I would dye my hair. It's been five years since I did that, right after Kate was born.
I picked out a pretty shade of dark brown with a hint of auburn in it. That's mostly what I wanted, was a darker shade, with a tiny hint of natural red.
What I got was a…

My husband and I played tag this weekend with our son and niece. Playing tag as an adult is completely different than how you remember it. For starters, a big chunk of the fun is watching children react when they realize you are chasing them: They fall down in fits of giggles, try to direct you to tag someone else and even run toward you just to become "it" next. I also learned that my husband still tries to chase after me, which after…Continue

I recently read an article in the ‘Pathways to Family Wellness’ where Joseph Chilton Pearce, best selling author on child development, discusses how imagination can save our children from becoming violent. He explains, “The child without imagination is subject to the immediate sensory environment bombarding them, without any alternatives. If his sensory environment is unpleasant, demeaning, insulting or threatening, his survival drive gives him no choice but to…Continue

Last week I posted about not qualifying fathers as "active." I'd like to believe that one day we will drop these adjectives from parental descriptions, so that we will be just "dads" and "moms" and not "active dads" or "working mothers."
