I’ve noticed lots of people like to share stories of failure once the failure has passed, and once they’ve reached some kind of success and can see how their failure served them.

Those inspiring stories are great.

However, it’s not often that you hear a story of failure told while someone is still in it, before that person has even fully made sense of their letdown.

Today, my intention is to break that trend.

Earlier this year, I decided to unsubscribe from all of the e-mail lists I belonged to, with the exception of about 5 that I particularly enjoy & find valuable.

I used this ever-so-wonderful bulk unsubscribe tool at, which also informed me exactly how many lists I was subscribed to.

Can you guess how many?

I remember sitting around the family dinner table as a kid, making fun of ‘experts’.

“Oh, this week ‘they‘ said candy is now good for you!”

” ‘They‘ have a new study out that says doing the dishes is actually harmful to your health!”

(If there’s any kids reading this… totally doesn’t work by the way.)

While one day we may read in the paper that economic ‘experts’ predict the world economy will grow steadily for the next 15 years, the next we might read about the ‘experts’ predicting its collapse and demise.

When I was in high school, I always imagined myself working for a non-profit.

I didn’t know what kind of non-profit, but what I did know was that I would be over-worked, tired, poor, and that it wouldn’t matter because I would be making a difference! I actually envisioned myself in the future as a stressed out, exhausted, and under-paid non-profit worker because this is what I thought it took to make a difference in the world.

To me, self-sacrifice was synonymous with making an impact: this meant sacrificing money, material possessions, travel, and any and all pleasures or luxuries.

**View the video interview below!**

For anyone wanting to have an online presence with their business today – having a blog or vlog is pretty much a no-brainer!

It is a great way to educate  & give valuable information to the people you serve, establish yourself as an expert (don’t you think I’m soooo smart cause I have a blog?! Ya ya do!), and to get traffic to your site so peeps can see what you are up to.

I don’t think I need to spend much time educating on the importance and worthwhiley-ness (is that  a word?) of blogging.

What comes up for a lot of new business owners (I can definitely remember this for myself) are questions & fears around blogging like…

How to Know if you Should Start your Own Business (Part II of II)

**Before you read this, make sure you’ve check out Part I of this blog series, which includes 6 signs you are definitely NOT cut out to be an entrepreneur.**

For a long time, I was very dissatisfied in my job(s), hopping around from one to the next (even though my friends all thought my jobs were pretty cool), not knowing that I had pretty much all the qualities & traits of an entrepreneur and THAT was why I was unfulfilled.

I now know I could never be truly satisfied unless I was doing my own thing & running my own show.

Maybe you can relate:

-Do you often feel bored at work?
-Do you crave greater variety in your schedule?
-Do you long to set your own hours, so you can travel whenever you want?
-Do you want to be doing work where there is no limit to your potential & the impact you’re able to make?

How to live and work from anywhere.

There’s a trend happening…

It’s the “I want to be an entrepreneur & live and work from anywhere” trend.

The idea of an average work day consisting of sitting at the beach with a laptop and drink in hand is understandably appealing to many folks! 

It can be easy to idealize the location-independent, nomadic lifestyle; however, the reality of it often tends to be quite different.
