Celebrate The Lifestyle, Not The Product

As a small business owner I was always challenged with finding new ways of reaching fellow handbag junkies who would buy my designs. In retrospect, I tried to boil the ocean and I didn't reach my target at the right level. The primary goal was always to move units and recoup costs so I'd have funds to pump back into the business. At the end of the day, a lot of one-and-done customers didn't do much to sustain my rapidly shrinking market share.

After some research, I determined my…

Haters ALWAYS Gonna Hate

Want to know one of my biggest pet peeves?

The chronic complainer who LOVES to point out problems but NEVER volunteers a solution.

Those people irritate the hell out of me.

Guess what? If you want to be successful in business, DON'T be one of those people.

I'm fired up, can't you tell with all the caps?  LOL!

Now, I can certainly appreciate the fact that people may get deterred by a lot of red tape and invisible barriers to change within their corporate…

Searching For The Fountain Of Youth???

Okay, so who besides me is sick of getting older???

Getting older means LOOKING older. And even if we can't remedy all the physical ills of aging, there are products that can make us feel more comfortable about our appearances.

I'm always on the hunt for the non-invasive miracle. I've tried SO many products - tools, scrubs, caviar...all with mediocre results. No fillers or surgery to speak of - not really a fan of scalpels or pumping my face full of toxins. But I…

Odor Eaters...For Your Mouth

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.

Time Management Tips Social Media Moms

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…

Likes, Shares and GIVEAWAYS!

Maintaining your skin care routine even in winter

  • STAY HYDRATED ...Drinking your 8 cups of water is still important in the winter . As the cold air draws out the moisture from our skin , it is very important to…

Mentors are Key to Small Business Survival!

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, …

Rejection Never Felt So Satisfying

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…

Please Brand Me Now!!!

Branding.

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…

There Is Nothing Taboo About Failure

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…

The Flower Power Entrepreneur

Do you know what I absolutely hate spending money on?

Greeting cards.

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…
