It was love at first sight – bloom Daily Planners

I love, I mean love-love-love, buying my new planner for an upcoming year! It's like school supply shopping for grown-ups! I think one of the reasons I love to buy a new planner is that the nice, blank, clean pages seem to make me feel like anything is possible for...

Back to School, Music to My Ears

This is fun: revisiting a blog post from a few years back when I was working from home, but in the corporate world vs. as the entrepreneur I am today.  There have been a few changes/improvements with my new gig! I am no longer required to work an 8-hour day, for...
