So I Failed My Goal This Year …

We Failed Our Goal

I failed, horribly, at the 52 Week Family Challenge this year.

Wowsers. It was hard to write that, but I try to be as authentic and transparent with my community as possible.

First, my monthly updates just didn’t happen. As many times as they were on my to-do list – life happened and I just kept putting it off. That accountability piece truly makes a difference when working on a specific goal.

Is Outsourcing Your Company’s IT Support A Good Idea?

Is Outsourcing Your Company's IT Support A Good Idea?

Information Technology covers a broad spectrum of computer hardware, software and services. Today’s modern businesses all use some form of IT during their day-to-day operations. Some of those firms will handle their Information Technology in-house. Others hire third parties to take care of that side of things for them.

Baking and A Walk Down Memory Lane

Baking and A Walk Down Memory Lane

I baked a cake today.

That may seem to be very trivial and unnecessary information … but it isn’t.

What Is 0 divided by 0?

What is Zero divided by Zero?

If you want a chuckle and have not already done so, ask Siri what 0 divided by 0 is to hear her snarky response.

Be In The Moment This Holiday Season

All I Want For Christmas Divas With A Purpose

I don’t know about you, Divas, but December has been a crazy month. I can’t believe that Christmas Day will be here in 10 days! My children’s last day of school is this Friday and we’re excited for the winter break – sleeping in, late nights watching holiday movies and traveling to visit family and friends in my hometown of Charleston, South Carolina.

My children remind me of the true reason and joy of the season when I find myself bogged down with the tasks associated with being a work-from-home mom in the beginning stages of running her own business full-time and then it hits me –
