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 […]

Persistence And Little Baby Steps

Persistence And Little Tiny Baby Steps Sometimes all the persistence one can muster is to take a few little tiny baby steps at the close of a day that has seemed very long in many ways. Don’t underestimate the courage that this requires! If today is this kind of a day for you, then give yourself proper credit for extending yourself enough for those little tiny baby steps that you are able to take. Some days are just like that and I hope to encourage you to carry on, doing even just that one simple thing that you are able […]

Turning Tragedy Into Triumph With An Encore Career

It is coming up to the one year anniversary of the day that changed my life forever, so today I want to talk to you a little bit about turning tragedy into triumph with an encore career. Instead of mourning an ending, you can celebrate a beginning! I am doing just that, and eagerly look forward to helping others do the same. In just about three weeks from now it will be a year since the day that took away my profession of thirty years, suddenly without warning, and with a startling finality. Of course that finality is all in […]

Beach Sunset, Puerto Vallarta

Working And Playing In Puerto Vallarta

So, I’m here in amazingly beautiful Puerto Vallarta and enjoying every minute of this “working vacation” with its very stimulating business intensive and the balmy tropical setting. The sunset on the beach and over the water during last night’s dinner was serene, majestic, and warm in great contrast to the bitter cold of the Northeastern United States. That is home and I love it, but this is heaven. There is so much to learn as a new start up business owner and I am so blessed and grateful for finding the most awesome bunch of people to work with that […]
