How to Get Up Early and Be Productive

Something I get asked about a lot is how I get up so early. The first disclaimer is that I am a morning person. So, waking up early comes somewhat easier to me. If you aren’t a morning person naturally, you might not be able to get up as early as I do. There is nothing wrong with that. This is what works for me and my current life season!

Creating Multiple Touch Points with Your Audience

So, I’m gonna let you in on a little secret. I am constantly strategizing and thinking of ways to connect with my audience (you).

26 Years (a birthday recap)

I just turned 27 yesterday. Wow, that sounds so old to me. I still feel like a 20 year-old. Still so much to figure out, still so much maturing to do. But here I am, in my late 20’s. I have two older sisters, so watching them grow up, the ages they were always sounded so old. But, then I would hit that “old” age number and would realize that it wasn’t so old after all. So, 27 always seemed so grown up and established and I should definitely have my problems sorted out by that age, but not so, friend.

For the first year of doing this, I didn’t read business books. For me, reading was a time for me to relax and escape and I didn’t want to keep filling my head with business stuff. I need to shut off. Escape. And it’s been so good for me.

Why Being Unique is Good For Business

As we grow up, all we want is to belong. We want to conform, be liked, and mesh with the crowd. For some reason, we believe that if we look and act like everyone else, we will be important and loved. I fell victim to this mindset for too long. But, as I’ve matured a bit and grown older, I’ve learned that being different and unique is a much more exciting adventure.
