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 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.

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

Guest Star Post: How to Stand in Your Value and Get Paid What You're Worth

​ When youre having an enrollment conversation - especially if youre just starting out, and arent very confident in your value yet - it can be easy to undervalue yourself.

This may feel like a sensible way to enroll clients who dont think they can afford you - but it can also cause you to feel resentful andtaken advantage of, and it makes it harder for you to really give it your all. Today,... 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?

Is the Quest for Perfection Hurting Your Business?

Have you ever had a time when three simple words gave you a much-needed kick in the butt? Yesterday, I was talking with my friend, Helen Brahms, when she shared this quote: "Production over perfection". That phrase really struck a chord with me, because while I'm getting better at letting go of my perfectionistic tendencies, I often wait until I think I can do things perfectly or almost perfectly before I do them at all. As a result, some things simply don't get done for days... weeks... months... even though a "good enough"... Read More
