It’s a Starbucks and wine kind of day

It was an early Tuesday afternoon in February and heard the garage door open from upstairs. It was Dan coming home from a short business trip. I knew he would soon come inside, give me and Bella a kiss (best part!) and then go straight to his desk and back to work. Being on the road was good for making phone calls, but didn’t help Dan with all the other work piling up while he…

Resource: How to write for success while running a business

I’m not a writer. I am an entrepreneur running a business. But several years ago I stumbled on a transforming website. I was reading comments on someone’s blog post about web design (what my actual business is about!) and someone mentioned they liked Jeff Goin’s simple design on his website. Several other people also commented the same thing so I had to go find out for myself. I went to goinswriter.com to check it out….

How to Run a Business Without Ruining Your Life

This isn’t as easy as you might think.  It starts with knowing your priorities.  This helps you define your business goals, and should definitely save you some stress.  If you know you want to exercise every day, eat dinner as a family and be free in the evenings and weekends for your kids’ soccer games – then you’ll have to make some adjustments to your business plan. Unfortunately, we’ve all read stories or know people…

1 Thing Your Employees Need to Hear You Say

Can you guess what it is?  If not now, maybe you will after I share my experience a few years back. When I worked as a District Manager, I often traveled with the Regional Manager or the VP of Operations to our various stores.  It was natural to greet the store managers and say hello to the associates.  However, I noticed my companions wouldn’t say hello to most of the employees in the store.  In…

How to Take Charge of your Business

How to take charge of your communications, calendar and projects. No, the following is not an advertisement.  Though I will begin this post with a disclaimer.  I’m a big fan of Microsoft Office, including Outlook.  Have been for years.  Granted, with my work background and usage, I am an expert user of Outlook, so the critique some have of not knowing how to use all the functions has never slowed me down.  Those who are…
