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 […]

My Private Facebook Group – Katie’s Encore Career Entrepreneurs If you are interested in an encore career as an entrepreneur, you might have no idea at all where to start.

Take a listen HERE I’ve set up a private Facebook group as a place where my “peeps” can go for encouragement, tips and tricks, to ask questions and find answers, and to share with other like minded persons.

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.

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 […]

New Video Reveals Secrets Of Making Money Well Into Retirement

New Video Reveals Secrets Of Making Money Well Into Retirement If you are retired, or looking at retirement in the near future, you are probably wondering how you will ever be able to afford to retire. Generations before ours anticipated working at one company their whole career and being “taken care of” by that¬†company via a company owned retirement plan. Now baby boomers are facing a huge financial crisis as the privatization of retirement plans has not quite worked out as anticipated or promised.¬†We need new solutions that go far beyond what 401k and 403b or IRA plans are actually […]

Hello on WordPress, thanks to Mr. John Chow

Hello World on WordPress and a great big thank you to Mr. John Chow for getting me set up to start blogging. This must be what it is like to be sailing on a great big sea with a little tiny boat, all made of even tinier pieces that kind friends and neighbors have helped you put together into what you are pretty sure a boat is supposed to be. Have had little bits and pieces that have been pulled together for the past few months and love writing, but couldn’t quite get all of those bits and pieces together […]
