So much mentoring….so little time.

As my journey continues, schedules become tighter, but the requests (and desire) to mentor becomes more evident.

This is an awesome article to help find a balance between the grind of entreprenuership and helping others.

See you here. 

Insanity. 


The answer is YES, Yes, and yes.  
Punched in the gut, often – we not only return to the scene of the beat down, but challenge ourselves with goals surrounding our business.  
Only keeping these goals between me and God,  I laugh and celebrate when I not only meet, but smash these crazy expectations I put on myself. 
The universe knows your heart and rewards us accordingly. 
New week.  What s next?

Happy Monday.  See you at my place.

Word of mouth will take you places a ‘like’ won’t…

Before social media, word of mouth stands the test of time in advertising.  As much as social media has increased awareness in many businesses, the true mark of success comes outside what the business says about itself….it’s what the clients say about the business.

Stand on a chair, beat on your chest, tweet, IG, update all day long about how great your “brand” is….

But the most valuable and meaningful endorsements come unsolicited and usually unseen on social media.  For me, it’s that ‘Thank You’ from a hard to fit client or that ‘Aha!’ moment from a student learning a new skill, even  engaging a customer with a smile and friendly conversation who says, ‘I’m glad I stopped in, I will be back’…

These are what keeps a business moving forward with even the occasional unsatisfied customer being considered an opportunity for growth.

There are tons of successful professionals, in several areas who haven’t even touched social media….their hard work and return clientele attributing to their longevity.

No tweets needed.

Likes and follows are great, but they ain’t paying my bills.

Aren’t you glad? I am.
