Productivity Boosting Practices

February is basically O-V-E-R. I know a lot of people don’t do the resolution thing anymore, but we all should have goals to reach by the end of the year. The excitement has died down all over my news feeds. I don’t see as many positive affirmations or confident posts about the year’s accomplishments to come.

Yeah I know life gets in the way sometimes. But guess what? It always will if you let it. It’s been awhile since I talked about productivity.

If you’ve lost the momentum to follow through on the plans you made earlier this year I have some ideas that could change that. Continue Reading

I Gave Birth Last Week!

Time for a Change…

I’ve been needing a change in my life. Something drastic and totally uncomfortable.

A year ago I figured out what that “thing” was. I knew I’d make it happen but wasn’t clear on how. I’m always open to giving advice to people when needed. But on the contrary, when it comes to my own dealings I’m extremely private.

So today I’m exiting the comfort zone to share some exciting news with you! Continue Reading
