My Daily Struggles while Working From Home

My Daily Struggles while Working From Home

I read several books and articles on the great opportunities and challenges in working from home. For me, it mainly comes down to distractions. If you’re like me, you have a grand number of things on your to-do list. That list keeps getting longer, and it always feels like I’ve only gotten the bare minimum […]

Living, Writing, Loving It

I admit that I go M.I.A. from this site all too often. It’s just that I’m living the life that I want, but have very little time for extra stuff. Extra stuff includes promoting my skills online.

Normal and the Power of Suggestion

I keep wondering what my life would be like if I hadn’t fallen into the “normal” trap. I call it a trap because so many people are unhappy.

The sitter officially started last week. This week’s initial session was cancelled because Baby was sick, so […]

Live to work, work to live: I could be my own employer

Christmas and the New Year have passed, and I am ready to barrel right into 2016. My motivation is not a New Year’s resolution, but an epiphany I had while preparing for the holidays. As busy as my life was before December, it got even crazier with having to add shopping trips, wrapping, dishes to […]
