My "messy room" strategy for easy decision making.

Every day, we're tasked with thousands of decisions. How many? Well, Cornell University researchers said we make about 226 decisions just on FOOD in an average day. The total number for adults is somewhere in the range of 35,000 decisions a day. Many of them are impulsive, and logic-driven (pro/con, etc.), but that's STILL a […]

What my photo shoot taught me about pricing (it's not what you think!)

This week I had an AMAZING photo shoot that's been several months in the making. I knew when I landed in Nashville, starting over would take up a good portion of my first year here. I also knew that I had projects that still needed to move forward: I've been sitting on Creative Freedom for a […]

Does opportunity only knock once?

I think it was my grandmother who first told me that you never get a second chance to make a first impression. I was going to her church for Easter Sunday, and, of course, I had to look my best. I was representing my family, I was showing up for God, and (probably most important […]

Ready for an upgrade? Ask yourself this question first...

We're a few episodes into the new season of Creative Freedom, and I'm giddy at the overwhelmingly positive response at this season's show. Fingers crossed I don't jinx anything along the way.

How Winning The Lottery Changed My Life (It's Not What You Think)

"You can't win if you don't play." Mom used this sentence to justify a lot of behavior when I was a kid: learning to ride a bike, auditioning for plays, joining the cross country team (I took 11th place in the city meet). And yes, mom played the lottery. She had a winning streak where, with […]

Underearning? Upper Limit Problems? Raise Your Success Ceiling & Re-set Your Thermostat

In my house, there's a never-ending battle that's almost as epic as the fight for the remote control. The thermostat. My husband likes it hot. He closes the vent in our room and bundles under at least two blankets even during Summer! My son likes it cold. If it's warmer than 65, he'll turn the thermostat […]

Two types of "can't"

It's report card time around here. My youngest is struggling in gym class. Sadly, I've seen it before with his older brother. "Won't even attempt new activities," the report card reads. So hubby and I sat down with our 8 year old to find out what's going on. "I can't do it." He said. "I'm not […]

Business feeling sluggish? Ask for help

I chuckle now as I look back on my collegiate career. Convinced that I was "too poor" to be able to afford to hire a band, a graphic designer, or a business manager, I learned how to do all those things myself. I took classes in business, law, graphic design, and music. My first album […]
