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 […]

An Encore Career Entrepreneur’s Thoughts From A Pier In Jamaica

Hey there, I wish you could be here with me, enjoying the waterfront on Montego Bay, learning how to build your own business and create lifestyle freedom for yourself! There is the sound of the waves under the pier, friends around me chatting about their business strategies and what is working for them, everyone so generous in sharing. Last night we went to the Luminous Lagoon, a place where a river and the ocean meet. In this magical place, when you jump into the water and swim around, you radiate light! You create a disturbance in the water that glows […]

From My Balcony In Jamaica

Hey there, So, yesterday I was sitting on my balcony overlooking a crystal clear blue pool and the awesome turquoise blue waters of Montego Bay, Jamaica. The sun is warm and relaxing. The happy sounds of children playing is drifting up through the leaves of the palm trees and there is a faint scent of flowers. I was thinking to myself, “This can’t be real! It’s like a dream come true to be here in this tropical paradise learning from super star internet marketers. One of those entrepreneurs is a 29 yo from Australia, called Matt Lloyd. Matt’s business system […]

Tips On Travel From An Armchair Travel Fan For You Wanna Be Entrepreneurs And Encore Career Types

Hey there all you wanna be entrepreneurs and encore career types, I’m packing for a 10 day, 11 night “should be a fantasy trip” to Montego Bay, Jamaica. It would be a fantasy trip if I were not an armchair travel fan. Mind you, I’m sure once the actual travel part is over, it will be wonderful! It is mostly the anticipation of the actual travel part that raises my anxiety level to something barely tolerable. Then there is the whole leaving George and “the girls” (our 5 hens) that makes me anxious in advance. This will be a “working […]
