Fear of Change?

Change CHānj/ verb 1. 
make or become different. noun 1. 
the act or instance of making or becoming different. How often have you changed your mind about something in life? My track record is not squeaky clean when it comes to changing my mind. But hey, It’s a woman’s prerogative, well anyone’s prerogative, we women just always seem to be blamed the most for it… go figure.

I Only Go To Work and Back Home!!

Where is my money going?! It’s a question a lot of us ask ourselves, especially when we say we only go to work and back home. At that point you have to wonder…maybe it’s money I’m spending while I’m at work??? This could very well be true. Most of us buy breakfast, lunch and maybe even dinner or a snack on the way home. Trust me when I tell you, that all adds up!! Don’t believe me?

Uh Oh I Lost My Focus!!

Sometimes We Lose Ourselves I had a great weekend! What about you? Spent some time with old friends that were in town and made some new friends that live in town. I even got a chance to unexpectedly party with family one night! Everything that a weekend should be, unexpected fun. From Friday to Sunday I was out and about. I wake up this morning and I think to myself I need to write, but my usual excitement to get up and do it was missing. I think this is a point where most people lose their momentum. You have

Money Saving Tips

Something me and my best friend were talking about the other day was the fact that almost everything in life you want to do requires money. For me, that usually means the things that I aspire to: buying a house, building a business, making a career change, etc. It’s a sad state of affairs, but there are ways to get to what you want, sometimes it just takes a little longer unfortunately.  

Build Up Your Daughters

Now let me start this off by saying that I am not a parent. But….I thought it would be interesting for you parents out there to hear from the child’s perspective just what helps make us well adjusted, confident women. I can only speak from a girl’s perspective, although I think these things apply to the boys in reverse order.

I Don’t Want to Live In a Box

All my life I have been told that I need to go to school, go to college and get a good job. I believed that and I achieved that. But then it continued with getting a better job, make more money, and plan for retirement. Don’t get me wrong, I believe in working and maxing my earning potential and planning for the future, but recently I have begun to understand that I want more than that. Monday-Friday I go to work, and then I go home and wake up and do it all over again. It has become redundant. I

Let’s Talk Money

Money. A word scarier than the boogieman. But why does it have to be? Because of the problems we have with it? Or maybe because it’s always the giant elephant in the room we’ve been told not to talk about? Money doesn’t have to be scary. We just have to start talking about it and start managing it and not letting it manage us. 

Weight Loss Surgery- Why I Did It!

A few months before my 29th birthday I decided to have weight loss surgery. At the time I was weighing over 200 pounds, and on my very short 5’2” frame that’s a lot of weight! I thought about multiple procedures before like the lap band or the o-band and things like that but I wasn’t really sure I should. At this point I had tried multiple things to lose weight: programs, shots, diet, exercise, whatever was supposed to help you I tried it. For a while I was able to go down but then it would creep right back up,

Do You Know When To Stop?

It’s Sunday evening and I have had one hell of a weekend. I’m not talking about a wild partying type of weekend, I’m talking about so busy and not all good things happening type of weekend. In the midst of all this there are so many things that I need to get done. I have a fondant cake that needs to be made by Thursday (in the middle of me still working a full time job), a blog I need to finish setting up, design decisions for that blog, more writing for that blog, pictures need to be taken for
