I've had a few people ask me questions that sound something like these...
"How do you motivate yourself to write?"
"What do I have to do to get started writing?"
"What is it really going to take for me to get on track with my [book/blog/whatever]?"
It astounds me how much people overcomplicate this.
If you want to start writing, the way to do it is...to start writing! If that doesn't sound like a useful answer, then I might suggest that you are asking a…Read More
No one wants to think about death or disability. Of course, if you die, you are beyond the worry
and care of everyday living. But we must consider those who we are leaving behind. Pets are the part of
our family that we sometimes fail to make plans for. As I have gotten older, I am becoming…

Beyond the three basic r's
(This is the second in a series of blogs focused on ideas related to reinvention.)
When our ancestors were studying at home or going to school, reading, ‘riting, and ‘rithmetic were sufficient. With these three r’s they could function efficiently in a simple society. Back then families and neighbors worked together closely to build a barn on the farm or erect a…Read More

Going crazy...getting sane
(This is the first in a series of blogs focused on ideas related to reinvention.)
Am I going crazy or getting sane?”
This is the question I first asked myself many times in the late-1990s when I doubted the career choices I had made in the pursuit of worldly success. In recent months, this same inquiry has come back to force me to…Read More

You and your spouse may own a business together and have structured it as a Limited Liability Company (LLC). An LLC limits the owner’s liability much like a corporation but provides the benefit of pass-through taxation. An LLC is authorized by each individual state but is not recognized by the IRS as an entity for federal income tax purposes. At tax time, you will have to decide whether to file taxes for the LLC as a corporation, partnership or sole proprietorship. The type of business will…Read More
Mind on info overload? I was reading Angela Hunt's novel, She Always Wore Red, when I ran across the following sentences:
Whatever made me think I could go back to school? For thirty-nine years, the neurons in my brain have been fling information away, and now I'm pretty sure the drawers are either full or stuck. I'm not sure there's room for more then a dozen new fifty-cent words.
Do you feel like that?…Read More
When I decided to begin my business 10 years ago, one of the most influential books was Daniel Pink’s “Free Agent Nation.” This book offers a number of resources for the micro business owner to use to get started and explains how to use them. One of the most critical is a networking structure.
From the beginning Inside 919 has provided my company, Convey Media Group, with a unique way to network. Through my participation, I have met people in person and been able to strengthen these…Read More
The path to the Olympics is quite possibly one of the most grueling experiences any human being can ever imagine. Last night as my husband and I were witnessing the greatness of the USA Women’s Gymnastics Team take the arena by storm I looked over at him and said “What makes a 7 year old girl decide that she’s going to become an Olympic gymnast and pulverize her body in the process?”
I doubt if any of those young women woke up one day shouting to the rooftops that they wanted…Read More

Are our homes making us sick or fat? Are toxins predisposing us to gain weight?
Yes, obesogens, antibiotics, organotins, phthalates, parabens, BPA, and PFOA (Teflon/scotch guard and controls metabolism and disrupts the thyroid gland). These are all endocrine disrupters. Toxins cause cells to be bigger causing us to gain weight and can cause stem cells to be fat cells.
Green is not enough. Green eliminates the risk but the bioaccumulation toxifies us and is a…
London 2012 is here!!!! I am about to jump out of my skin I’m so excited, I even have the schedule of events taped to my refrigerator so I can check out my favorite athletes and sports when they are aired on television. There is just something about witnessing the most elite athletes in the world compete against one another, shedding blood, sweat and tears as they lay it all out on the line for the world to see. How will they measure up to one another physically and mentally? Who will walk…Read More
Bankruptcy is a very powerful and useful tool in our society. Filing for protection under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 allows consumers to obtain a “fresh start” and get out from under the burden of excessive debts and obligations. Bankruptcy can also be an effective tool to help consumers save their homes and automobiles, providing them an extended period of…Read More

My son (Eli) just shared his recent hiking adventure with me and I thought I'd share the pictures here.
Many know that I still consider myself a Coloradoan (yet love the NC).
These are from near Leadville and make up the Emerald group from Lake Fork with a "ridge run" to Missouri Mountain.
When I did this the concern was always with outrunning mountain thunder and lighting stroms (can be like a monsoon on fire) - so you get up really early, hit the hill and try to make…Read More

“Shifting your mindset is the first step you must take to move your business to the next level”
Do you ever see other successful women entrepreneurs and think to yourself, “Why is she so successful and I’m not?” Or what about, “What is she doing so well that I’m not doing?” Yeah….I’ve heard them, too, in my own head.
You’re not alone! Many women entrepreneurs, including myself, at one time, suffered from a lack of confidence, fear of failure and even fear of…Read More

As you unclutter, work through one room at a time.
