Katie Munch, Lifestyle Freedom Entrepreneur, Shares From The Heart

Greetings to all my encore career entrepreneur peeps. Welcome to those of you longing for lifestyle freedom (as I was only a couple of years ago) and wondering if it is only a dream. Having just returned from a trip to my father’s “old Kentucky home” to lay him to rest, I feel thoughtful and reflective. Sadness is natural and expected when a loved one goes on before us. The sense of gratitude that shines through the grief is an unexpected gift, however. I am delighting in it! I am grateful for the lifestyle freedom I now enjoy. The past two years […]

Coming Out Of The Dark

One Entrepreneur’s Gratitude For Lifestyle Freedom And “Coming Out Of The Dark”

Hi All, Here is this entrepreneur’s expression of gratitude for lifestyle freedom and “coming out of the dark.” Here in the Northeastern United States, we are lying under a quiet blanket of snow, about a foot and a half of it! It has been a very long and very dark winter for this encore career entrepreneur. Some of you may know that I lost my “baby brother,” my only sibling, on Thanksgiving Day. It was a struggle to focus on anything, particularly anything creative, during the months after Mike’s death. I’m sure that many of you wondered about the silence […]

Entrepreneur’s Confession

This Entrepreneur’s Confession is not at all my typical blog post, but a much needed attempt to speak. For several weeks now I have felt unable to share, have fallen under a silence. I was thinking today about the suggestion to “start where you are with what you have” and so I speak. 2016 was a year of tremendous growth as an entrepreneur and as an individual. There were invaluable lessons. Some lessons are for sharing with aspiring entrepreneurs, others deeply personal, some still in progress. Although I have yet to be ready to share all publicly, I wanted to […]

Entrepreneurs See Challenges As Opportunities To Grow Lifestyle Freedom

TRUE CONFESSIONS ~ Rather Than Obstacles, Entrepreneurs See Challenges As Opportunities to Learn and Grow Their Dream Of Lifestyle Freedom. Entrepreneurs’ view of the path before them is quite different from what non-entrepreneurs see. I started out, not so long ago, from my sickbed ~ literally! For practical purposes, there were months where I had no income at all and had to live off of savings. And my illness robbed me of my usual energy. I was just about getting through each day. It was discouraging, to say the least. Then, “my ship came in” (figuratively). I discovered a business model that […]

The Wee Hours, Again, “Entrepreneuring”

So, here I am again in the wee hours of the morning, your “Encore Career Entrepreneur”~ wannabe blogger ~thinking about what it is that keeps me going and going (kind of like the EverReady bunny) until these kinds of hours so often. It is a part of the laptop lifestyle that I cherish, this being able to keep going “when the Spirit moves me” doing something that I love, knowing that it is okay to be working when most of my little corner of the world is asleep. It is wonderful to know that if I’m feeling inspired, it is […]

Seek First To Understand, Accept – Then Reinvent

Seek First To Understand, Accept – Then Reinvent Listen (Listening is SO important) Accept what is! (Okay, you don’t have to love it, but it really does help if you accept what is actually happening!) Don’t take things personally! (Most of the time, it really is NOT personal at all and taking it personally keeps us locked into a negative feedback loop that helps no one, especially us.) It is really up to us to figure out who we are at our core and accept that, and then figure out how to get that message out there to the people who […]

Ten Rules For Success From A Superstar

So, I was listening to a Gary Vee YouTube talk. I enjoy him. He’s obviously VERY smart and kind of a wise guy too, and he’s funny. His language is a little over the top for me, so I’ll try to distill this without all the “F” words he uses when he talks and get the meat of the ideas for you. Gary Vaynerchuk’s 10 rules for success: Bet on your strengths and don’t bother at all about what you are not good at. Focus on what you are good at and put all of your time, effort, energy, and […]
