The pain when scarcity mindset bites you back

It's summertime. My work hours are super limited. Essentially, I need to make enough to cover camp tuition and keep the American Express gods at bay. So I took on a "legacy" client - someone who has been following me since my old website biz partnership days. Someone I know who wants to do stuff on ...

Re: Understanding Your Website Analytics

Thanks, lany, I'll look into them. In trying to be discerning about what I really need to know. My former biz partner is a web developer and I trust her to know a lot of that stuff for me, even as our businesses shift from married to BFF status. I know I "should" empower myself with a lot of this, b...

I want to be brave enough to want to be her when I grow up

This post lit up my Facebook feed last week. I skimmed it and realized it was a rallying call for women twenty years or more older than my tender(ish) 36. I finally made time for it today and I realize it's for every woman. It's fierce. It's profane. It's sacred. And it's penned by a woman I recogni...

Re: Understanding Your Website Analytics

I've been relying on Jetpack stats for my wordpress site. Though I'm always working to increase traffic, I was ok with the numbers. Then I cracked open my long ignored Google Analytics account. Oh the pain to realize how different things look when you track discrete visitors rather than page views! ...

Your opinion sucks

This post could go anywhere in the forum because we're all spouting opinion on every topic under the sun. This article highlights the dark side of all those beliefs. When are you entitled to have an opinion? When are you just sharing misinformation because you don't have - or don't want - the full s...

Is it time to stop giving stuff away for free?

How many free ebooks are eating up space on your hard drive? How many email mini courses are in your read later folder? More than you can count? Blair Glaser challenges the "give it away" imperative and all the free reports and presentations service based entrepreneurs feels compelled to offer in ex...

Re: 5 Myths About Working Moms

Thanks for the link, Kirsten! Hope you get your hands on it soon - I'm excited to know what you think! It's a good vacation read - easy to read a couple pages between interruptions for more juice boxes and "play with me!" requests.

Is "entrepreneur" the right label for you?

"Entrepreneur" is used to describe everyone from brand new multi-level-marketers to CEOs of multi-million dollar companies. That seems awfully broad... The term can't effectively describe everyone in the self-employed, business-building arena. I think this word is especially hard for the work at hom...

Re: 5 Myths About Working Moms

Kirsten - I just finished Caitlin Moran's How to Be a Woman. I have long loved the "f" word and I enjoyed the book. I am sure it would've been even funnier if I caught the 75% of the cultural references that went over my pretty little American head. Would love to know how the author is perceived in ...

Re: 5 Myths About Working Moms

I worked at the Vassar Library for seven years, starting as lowly part-time interlibrary loan drone and eventually becoming Assistant to the Director and managing the building and facilities staff. I loved books until I had to deal with floods and mold remediation and the time we had to go dumpster ...

Re: 5 Things You Are Doing Wrong In the Morning

My mornings aren't really my own since I often wake up with a one year old and five year old in my bed... But I have started saying a prayer/ asking for guidance to be a peaceful, powerful, passionate mama regardless of how little sleep I got and no matter how cranky my big kid may be. I'm working o...
