This Could Only Happen To Me {For Reals}

I would like to start off by telling everyone that I am not excessively clumsy. I was not drinking the day when this story begins (at least not excessively). I don’t usually jump up out of my chair to do yard work (at least not excessively). We can now proceed. Last Monday was a gorgeous day here in Colorado. The sun was out, the birds were chirping and all was right with the world. We went for a hike on a new trail. …

4 Days of Juicing {and I almost ate my children}

We have been juicing since before we had kids. My favorite used to be carrots, apples and parsley. We have gone through a few juicers over the years and even the kids like it. Since finding out all about my food allergies we have gone back to juicing and basically trying to make most things from scratch. I kept on reading about people doing the juice fast and feeling terrific. High energy levels, clear skin, sharper mind, you look 18 …

You Can’t Do Everything {I can attest to this}

  {image is mine} I love this quote. Today is proves very much true. I sometimes can be delusional that I can juggle a million things. The truth is I can’t. When I try I usually prove that all I accomplish is to do everything half way. When you really put yourself into something everything else falls to the wayside….at least for me. Today we just launched our new course. My office is a disaster, the laundry could be climbed, …

Positive Gossip

This past January I went to Alt with Kimberly, Mel and Estelle. I wrote about the weekend HERE. The last night of the conference we were all relaxing, talking and having a few drinks before we all went our separate ways the next morning. Around the table with me was Kim, Mel, Estelle, Beefy, Melissa, Courtney and Melissa (I wonder what the popular name was 30 something years ago..hmmmm). Towards the end of the night Kim suggested that we play …

San Fran {a little recap}

A week ago today I was up at 4 am to get ready for my girl’s weekend in San Francisco. I don’t do mornings which shows how much I love these girls and San Fran! I am usually so focused on the kids, family and the business that I need a getaway like this or I am bad about getting together with people. I love people but I just love being home, reading with the kids,taking walks and creating in …

Beginning your business giveaway {The best giveaway I have ever had}

I have a heart for women. I am constantly amazed at the depth, quality, beauty, talent and strength of women. I had promised myself when I first started that if I ever figured this whole thing out (and I am still learning) that I would share how I did it. Along the way I have always tried to answer emails, encourage and support other small business owners (and dreamers). I had questions at the beginning and so many didn’t want …
