Less Thinking, More Doing- Achieve Your Goals in 2017 with the Whose Shoes Transformational Planner

At the time of this post there are 40 days left in 2016. A lot can happen in 40 days, but if there are 2016 goals you haven’t started on, you may be feeling a bit discouraged at this point. While 2016 is practically “over”, your 2017 can be very different, if you take steps to make sure it is. From my experience, one of biggest issues that hold many people back is being stuck in the “thinking” phase. I…

Why I Use My Voice To #SpeakBeautiful

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Dove and The bLink Marketing Network. The opinions and text are all mine. Social media is an amazing place. It has allowed me to connect with so many amazing people, start and grow a business, and I have developed partnerships and friendships because of it. I didn’t grow up with social media so by the time I started actively using social media for my blog and business, I was an…

A Season of Stillness, Pivoting & Growth – Blog Update

VeePeeJay with Inspirational Pillow & About That Faith Life Sweatshirt from Ven & Rose

I have been a bit extra quiet on the blog in the last few months. I was rereading at a post from last around this time where I talked about having “blogger burnout“, and while I have been experiencing some “blogger burnout”, and some boredom, I think I’ve mainly been in a “be still” period. Every time I would try to force myself to write a post, it’s as if God kept whispering “be still“, so that’s exactly what I did.…

“Be Quiet & Let Me Be Great” – Silencing the Little Girl In My Head

Brandy Butler (Middle) & Sherica Matthews (Right) I spent this past weekend in St. Louis attending Brandy Butler’s “Package Podcast Profit” intensive workshop.

Although I’m always encouraging others to celebrate their wins, I realize, in some ways I still struggle with fully celebrating my own wins. I feel comfortable sharing…

How Mobile Inspiration Makes The World A Better Place + #SMS16 Twitter Chat

She had recently started a podcast and just uploaded her second episode. The title of the podcast caught my attention so I decided to listen. It was short podcast which touched on the fact that so many people are…

Does This Thing Work? My Experience with At Home MicroDerm Treatment #HelloRadiance

This post sponsored by Silkn. #HelloRadiance. All opinions are honest and based on my own experiences. During my recent vacation, I was chatting with a hotel employee about an event the hotel was hosting. He informed my husband & I that we needed to be at least 28 years old to attend the event. I’m going to assume that he was trying to flatter us, but we both laughed so loud because neither of us is anywhere close to 28. As a…

I Went Parasailing & I Didn’t Die. Three Things I Learned from Conquering My Fear

I won’t necessarily consider myself the adventurous type when it comes to outdoor activities. As I get older I am a bit more open to trying new things, but I don’t go out of my way to seek out these types of adventures. My husband, on the other hand, is the complete opposite. He is the, “ooh we should try this” kinda guy. That’s exactly how I ended up in the middle of the ocean attached to a parachute while…
