The order of things

There's an order to things and sometimes you just have to stick to it so things WORK. But, I mean, how the heck do you tell the difference between the order of things and change? How does one know whether they're being a change-maker or a jerk with no consideration for others? Or really, are they...

Find your next (or first!) client

When I asked for video ideas the other week, Vanessa asked for suggestions for getting new (or first) clients. I haven't had time to record anything, but in the process of making some notes about how, I wrote this post. Bonus! Maybe after this month of daily blogging, I'm a blogger again. So,...

The future of girls

This morning while we worked, we had America's Next Top Model, Cycle 11 (that's like a season, in Tyra speak) playing in the background. Soon, watching took over as we gasped and WTF'ed our way through the first two episodes. I mean, we've come a long way since 2008 and it shows. Because 2008 was...

Cosy knits + boots time

It's finally that time of year; knits and boots time! I've been waiting for this for what seems like forever. Last year, we didn't get much winter with the occasional cold, and that's about it. But I don't know if it's my cold talking, or what, but this year it's been CHILLY. Yaasssss, finally!...

How to embrace sucking at things

As someone who blogged her way through almost a decade deciding to make videos was new. Something I'd never done. And let me tell you, team, sucking at something was hard. I really struggle with it. Before video, I felt like I had arrived!  I'd conquered the online world in my own way. I was...

Do you know your WHY?

When Sammie asked me this question in the 'She's of Inspiring' interview (read it here)... Viktor Frankl says “Those who have a 'why' to live, can bear with almost any 'how.” Everyone needs a purpose, what’s yours? Every day I get emails or messages from women who want to work for themselves....

How to make your email list more subscribe-able.

I'm probably the last person you should be listening to on the topic of building a healthy email list right now. My newsletters have been infrequent and uninteresting, to say the least. But, take this as a do what I say, not as I do kind of thing, okay? If you've got that...

My kind of people

We've talked about this before but it really hit home for me today. One of the things I love most about working for myself is that there is really no one to tell me what to do. My favourite part of THAT is choosing who I want to work with. I know, for others in...

Belonging to something

This weekend we celebrated my cousin's 40th birthday. If you've been around for a while now, you know that cousins are something I have plenty of! My Dad is one of eleven children, and my mother is one of five. There's a lot of us. And when we get together it's always...

Weeknight pasta dinner

I hadn't planned to put this recipe on the blog. There's not much to it, and the photos from my kitchen counter at 8 pm on a weeknight are hardly the stuff of Pinterest dreams. But, this is a delicious, simple meal that with a few fresh, simple ingredients can make...
