The lingering flavor of a Morningstar Griller veggie burger on your tongue...definitely not delicious-smelling. In fact, the scent might well wilt a flower if you open your mouth next to it.

I love what I do. I'm a Social Media Mom who has a chance to inspire others online through writing, videos, etc. but I also am a mom. I'm thankful that have the flexibility to be able to watch my kids grow. However, there are times when the business world and the family world collide. Here I am left wondering if I'm giving enough to each. That's where time management of my time working at home becomes so important. That way I am able to give dedicated time to my work but I'm also not missing…Continue

I just spent two days in Atlantic City at a leadership offsite where one of the resounding themes was COMMUNICATION. There were a couple of other themes floating around as well....like gambling and drinking but for purposes of this article, I'll focus on the former. =)…

Do you have a mentor? A mentor is someone who teaches or gives help and advice to a less experienced person.
According to a 2014 survey by The UPS Store, 70 percent of small businesses that receive mentoring survive more than five years – double the survival rate of non-mentored businesses. That same survey found that 88 percent of business owners with a mentor say that having one is invaluable.
I recently found an organization, …Continue

Like all authors seeking validation by gaining acceptance to an exclusive publishing house, I submitted "Unlikely Venture" in hopes of scoring a lucrative contract and promises of making the bestseller lists. Fortunately, like a Band-Aid being yanked from a wound, three out of the three I submitted to rejected it right away, for a variety of reasons that were kind of evasive and basically not very constructive. Part of this was my error, as I submitted to the wrong imprints with the…Continue

Argh. Sooo challenging...and so permanent. It needs to be just right.
Identifying your "brand" is kind of like going to college, where the goal is trying to figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life. But at eighteen, who really knows THAT?
You have to pick a major but what are the odds that in a few years you'll even be interested in pursuing a career in the field? Your scope of interests expands, you identify and refine your skill sets, you…Continue

Hi, my name is Kristen and I am a handbag junkie.
In fact, I love them SO much that I spent a very large sum of money to design and sell my own. Unfortunately, though I cherished those handbags and saw them having a unique value proposition, my business never did become profitable. I really thought it was on the brink a couple of times but we all know close only counts with horseshoes and hand grenades.
I lamented my losses for a long while (and continue to do so when I send my…Continue
Do you know what I absolutely hate spending money on?
I spend tons on cards for people that may be displayed on a counter for a couple of days and then casually get tossed into the trash. Even the "discount" cards are still around $2.99. And let's not even discuss the dollar store cards. Much cheaper but...scary-looking! You know what I mean? If you've ever seen one, we're on the same page.
But a friend of mine recently formed a business that…Continue

One of the things I made clear was that I wanted to be independent and continue to work from home, but also make money from home. The kids were in daycare and my…Continue
