A Single Parent Can be Wealthy, Too!

I wish there had been someone there to mentor me as a single parent…I would have done a lot of things differently; but there was not, and today, decades later, I still find myself in a mindset of lack!  But really not very often.  I learned all I did and became what I became through […]

It is Never Just About Money…

The holidays are a time when “the shit hits the fan” among friends and families, but this is exactly the season to let it go!  There are arguments that seem to be about money during this time of the year, but they are really much more than that.  It can be sibling rivalry from Christmases […]

Just Tell Me What To Do!

Sometimes, when faced with decisions and choices, it can become too much; and all we want is for someone to tell us what to do.  That is where the ancient art of storytelling can really come in handy.  Wisdom through the generations has been passed through stories–it is an easier way to tell someone what to […]

Happy, Happy, Sad, Sad!

It has been a long siege of illness for me since the end of October, but I am still a pretty happy person.  Of course, I have my sad days, and I have my happy days, and, when it comes to money, there is no telling what the day will bring so I think very little […]

Why Did I Choose Pampered Chef?

And why did I choose to be Pampered Chef “healthy”?   Pampered Chef is all about food.  It is all about healthy food and learning to cook healthy food with quality cooking utensils and tools and serving pieces.  People of all ages will tell me that they do not cook; but they do have to eat. […]

Rainy Days Make Me Glad While Rainy People Make Me Sad

This blog needs to be bold! Reading my daily words of wisdom from Tama Kieves, I had to smile when she spoke today, April 29th, of people who make her sad.  I relate.  Today is my mother’s birthday.  She died in 2005 at the age of 86.  She would have been 98, and I believed […]

“In the Flow of Happy”

Money does not stop at 5 PM Friday.  In fact, it probably flows just as happily even if it is more on the personal rather than business side of life for many.  Butterflies fly all of the time during their short life span.  I know, as a solo entrepreneur, that I show up all of the […]
