I was recently watching the "Married Life" montage in Up , and I noticed a pattern in the way Carl and Ellie pursued their shared dream of going to Paradise Falls. This pattern is reflective of the way many people pursue their dreams, so I decided to delve into it in today's blog post. This article will contain spoilers for Up , so if you haven't seen it yet and you care about spoilers, then go watch this great movie and come back when... Read More

How to Make Time For Two Businesses or Careers at Once

For many people, running their own business isn't the first step they take in their breadwinning endeavours. You may have an existing job that you want to keep until your business takes off, or to keep indefinitely if you like it enough. Even if you have entirely traded working as an employee for being your own boss, you may find that you have two sets of talents that are disparate enough to warrant two separate businesses. For example, I love helping business owners to connect with more of the clients who need them, and I'm also... Read More

Thankfully, I'm getting better at avoiding it, but there are still days when I need reminders about why this happens and how NOT to slide back into that crippling trap.

How a 4-Novel Author and Business Owner Plans to Keep Her New Year's Resolutions

2016 was an interesting year. Over the last twelve months, I've lost months of work through a file corruption incident , I've published a humor novel for cat lovers , and I started my first-ever long-running webcomic . I all but lost one of my biggest clients, and gained several more. I started a business venture that maxed out both of my credit cards and made me wonder if I'd be able to pay the bills, then got enough client projects to pull me back from the brink. I started a Patreon channel so I could get closer to... Read More

Guest Star Post: How to Instantly Get Your Energy, Creativity and Confidence Back

There was a very recent time when I had a serious slump in my creative efforts. There were SO many projects I wanted to work on, ideas I wanted to bring to life... but I was working 11.5-hour days, and I didn't have the energy for any of the things I longed to create. To make matters worse, instead of restoring my energy, my free time actually left me feeling MORE tired than I was when I finished work! Then I found the source of the problem, and it made such a big difference that I wrote a guest article about it for MotivationEarth.... Read More

4 Questions That Help You Turn Mistakes Into Opportunities

Have you ever had one of those days when you reorganized your file storage system, and it broke almost every single image on your website... including over 15 months' worth of blog posts? Yeah... me too. It was a pretty big facepalm moment for me, and a time-consuming inconvenience... but it also had the seed of an opportunity. My pilot error gave me a needed kick in the butt. I will confess: during busy periods, and even during some not-so-busy periods, I sometimes procrastinate on tasks that could benefit my business, but that don't... Read More
