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 […]

Starting Where You Are

Starting Where You Are… So, I've been thinking about starting where you are. It sounds terribly silly, doesn't it? I mean, let's be real! Where else can you possibly start? The thing is that most of us actually do try to start somewhere else instead. We try to start “ahead of ourselves” which inevitably leads to frustration. First we need to know where we are now, and we need to know WHO we are now. There is something magical about this whole equation once we get it going. Seeing clearly the difference between where we are now and who we […]
