What Would I Do If I Didn’t Read?

 June 7, 2022

I’m on the elliptical at Planet Fitness chatting with a new friend. When she asked me what I did, I told her I was a writer. To which she replied, “Oh, I don’t read.” I thought to myself, “Is that possible? How could someone not read?” Now let me clarify. This is not someone who […]

 July 7, 2017

Ordinary Time – Season of Stability Regardless of how rich or poor, powerful or powerless, whether you are a CEO of a multi-national corporation or a baby, we all get the same amount of time each day. Time cannot be bought or sold, which is good. If not, we would see a whole new market […]

 March 9, 2016

I Am My Own Worst Enemy

I’m no stranger to stress. Years ago, as a single mom raising three kids while working full-time, I wrote a book, not the book, on stress, Motherhood Stress: It Causes More than a Few Grey Hairs. I thought that once my kids were on their own, my life would naturally de-stress – NOT! The past […]

What’s Up with all the Free Webinars? Are They Really Free? Over the past two years, I’ve been signing up for multiple free webinars on book publishing and marketing.

(Photo courtesy Orange County Archives via Flickr) Minnie Pearl was known for her hat with the price tag still attached. I don’t know if this was to let people know how much she had paid for it, or so she could return it after having worn it a few times! Whatever the reason for the […]
