    Friday Ramblings-Would You Like $20 in Free Groceries?

    Another work week drawing to a close. I got three paperback books ready and published this week. Two are from one of my fiction series, and the other, a daily schedule planner. Next week I plan to work on the Black Friday challenge. That is creating three new products ready to be on sale the day after Thanksgiving. Are you taking part? If so, I’d love to hear from you, feature you here and yes, even feature the products you make during the challenge. E-mail me at budgetsmartqueries@gmail.com Not sure what I’ll create yet, but brainstorming will begin next week. Before I close out the week, I joined Imperfect Foods…

    Be Flexible When Working From Home

    Today’s the perfect example of learning to be flexible when you work from home. My to do list included getting at least one new class recorded. I was all set, ready to plug in my microphone when…wait, what was that noise? Hammering, guys talking… I’ve worked in my home office for close to twenty years. My neighborhood used to be the quietest place I’ve ever lived. Fast forward to the last few years, especially this year, and things have changed. Not only have more neighbors begun to work remotely and think it’s a great idea to make their sales calls with their windows wide open, but it seems like everyone’s…

    Monday Motivation-Shift Your Energy

    Sometimes things are out of our control. People’s attitudes and bias, the people that tell us it can’t be done. I’ve found rather than waste my energy on trying to change them, I’ve gone ahead and put my focus into living my dream. It’s your life, your energy, your dream, use it wisely.

    Friday Ramblings-What Does Your Friday Look Like?

    Welcome to October. What do you have planned this month? Today, I thought back to when I worked for someone else and what Fridays used to mean. The end of the work week, a two day rest, my mind thinking about anything besides work. Fridays take on a whole new meaning when you become your own boss. Well, at least they have for me. I’ve used them to think about what I got done, what I didn’t get to, and what I want to achieve the following week. Before I used Fridays for planning, my mind wouldn’t switch off and I’d be thinking about work at the weekend too. Not…
