Intentional Living: Exploring My Artsy Side at Dallas Community Colleges

I can’t say that I’m naturally gifted when it comes to Art or other creative or “artsy” type stuff. However, I’ve always wanted to learn how to paint (at least), but I’ve always talked myself out of it because of said lack of natural ability. In my last post, I shared how I planned to be even more intentional about everything I do. Β Naturally, when the folks at Dallas Community Colleges (DCCCD) gave me the opportunity to tour one of…

To Everything There Is A Season… Life/Blog Update

To everything, there is a season…… Towards the end of last year and even into early 2017, I wrestled with the idea of shutting down the blog. On one hand, I love having my little space to write and share, but in all honesty, I also felt that the topics that I was interested in writing about, at this stage in my life, were not of much interest to my core audience. After blogging for 6 years, I know this…

Why You Need To Stop Waiting To START

Things have been pretty quiet on the blog these last few weeks. I planned to “come back” starting March 1st but I decided to take my own advice and stop waiting to start πŸ˜‰ Last week while searching my name on Facebook (I do this periodically), I came across a post I made almost 6 years ago when I uploaded my first YouTube video. I could not help but laugh at the video. It was very basic, but it did…

#WhenSilenceSpeaks Writing Challenge: A Different World

I entered a different world today. Today I announced my first, solo, live online training (also known as a webinar). I’ve been a guest on a webinar before but I’ve never done one completely on my own. I’m excited to share on a topic that I get numerous questions about, and one that I’ve had almost 2 years of experience (trials, errors, and successes) with. On February 15th, I’ll be sharing how to create an additional stream of income by…
