Business Travels Tips: Overriding the Hotel Thermostat

I love speaking to women across the country! It allows me to travel and see different parts of the country. But business travel isn’t as glamorous as it sounds. But here’s a business travel tip to help ease the stress. And it is stressful at times. I’ve encountered bed bugs.

I was trapped in a snowstorm for 4 days and couldn't go home.

I have played the waiting game to see if a plane would actually show up and take me on to my next destination.

Patiently waiting...waiting...waiting for my flight!

And I am not even going to talk about the variety of “fun” a mom can have when traveling with kids while on business.

However, I can’t complain because there are so many joys of traveling.

But I’ll tell you the biggest thing that annoys me when traveling: the hotel that doesn’t let me control the temperature of my room. I like it toasty. I don’t want to feel a hint of a chill on my skin when I go to the bathroom in the night or get out of the shower in the morning. So I was glad to find this video on how to override the thermostat on the wall! A great tip that I will use on my business trip next week!

Simultaneously tap “off” button
Continue to hold down display, and Press the “up” arrow button
Release all buttons

Yay! Plenty of heat for me!

Healthy, Mobile Snacks for Sexy Moms

mobile snacksDon’t judge me, but I want to be a sexy mom. Sorry, I have a 7yr old girl and when she hits her teenage years I want her to be comfortable hanging out with me. But I do a lot of traveling and eating in restrauraunts-even healthy restaurants can cause you to pack on the pounds (and cost you a lot of dollars to do so)! So here are a 15 healthy snack that are easy for those moms who are on the go and still want to be sexy!

The children and I will take a quick road trip to Atlanta tomorrow (I will be sitting in someone else’s seminar!) and I’m looking at this list and checking my fridge..looks like I need to go shopping.  We’ve exhausted our supplies when I went to NY last week.

Start Planning Your New Year Goals NOW

Many mompreneurs are so busy with year-end holiday plans, completing business projects and taking care of the family that they don’t get around to planning their new year goals until AFTER the New Year festivities!

This is the month. This is the time;  early to mid-Novemeber is when  a mompreneur should re-assess her year and then make plans to do better, different, more or less next year.

 

Why should you start planning your new year goals NOW? Because holidays plan, meals, shopping and family will attack you like you’re a bloody stump dropped into a hungry shark’s tank! Just think back to last year…and the year before! Remember! The last 3 weeks of the year no one really works.

 

If YOU are working there is the constant disruption of your day due to shopping, cooking and eating events because everyone’s trying to reconnect and get into “holiday cheer”. Christmas is a wonderful time of year and you want to participate in these events without feeling guilty or pressured to finish out your year end projects.

So start tying your year up right now and/or start planning for next year!

Here are 3 simple steps to start planning for the new year:

  • 1. Create a space of celebration and acknowledgement with a group of momprenuers where you all feel comfortable bragging about your accomplishments for the year of 2011. We all have accomplishments but tend to gloss over them as we go off to work on the next set of goals. A great way to move forward is to stop and celebrate.
  • 2. Buy a FRESH, pretty journal and use it to keep track of all of your goals, projects, ideas and wishes for the new year.
  • 3. Create a Vision Board to help you stay focused on your dreams for 2012. I’m throwing a Vision Board Party on January 12, 2012 at 12noon. It will cost $12.  If you are near Greenville SC you’re invited to join us! Vision Boards are powerful visual reminders to your subconscious (and conscious) mind and will keep pulling you back to where you want to go.

With these 3 simple steps in place your business is treated with respect as you take time out to implement plans as oppose to flying by the seat of your pants come January and playing catch-up for the 1st few of months of the new year.

Are you prepared to start planning your new year goals? Leave a comment!

Old Spice Video Spoof-Mom Entrepreneur

My trailer for my new book is in!

I was going to doing something professional and business like. But I wasn’t feeling professional and business like on this day. I was feeling like me. Regular Teisha. Mother of 5. Crazy and Organized. Looney and light-hearted.

Maybe you won’t take me seriously now and will retract the thought to hire me as your business coach. Sorry. My serious side shows up at certain times.

Maybe you were thinking of having me to come out and speak to your group. Don’t get to happy.  My serious side shows up at certain times.

I’m a little bit crunchy AND I’m a little bit rock and roll.
