Leave us with a quote that has helped you to stay motivated.

WordPress vs. Blogger

screaming womanOkay, so WordPress isn’t as easy as Blogger. Yeah…I figured that last year when I started my blog, that’s why I went with Blogger to begin with. It’s a template, so you just type in your posts, upload your videos or photos, add on widgets by clicking a couple of buttons in settings, make it pretty with a third party application by clicking one button and you are in business!  WordPress, not so.

If you notice the huge gap in dates here it’s because I was busy familiarizing myself with WordPress. I gave up and decided to hire Jerry Levenger. He took care of my 2 week frustration in 3 days!!

Now I’m back on my own. There are still things to learn and so little time to do so….aaarragh! Between homeschooling, clients, radio show and feeding kids (breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner! A huge job by itself!) I am now learning WordPress;  plugins, html, ftp, permalinks…I just wanted a neat blog connected to my website….sigh!

Everyone says WordPress is so much better than Blogger. Maybe in terms of is functionality but definitely not it’s user-ability.  So far I’m thinking; if it’s not user-friendly what do I care about it’s many functions!

Fortunately, I’m always open to learning new things.  I’ll say the jury is still out.

Don’t Forget To Enjoy The Climb

Mom entrepreneur, as you grow your business it’s very easy to become frustrated by the climb. You may not be an overnight success and that means a lot of hard work while you continue to cook, clean and chase toddlers. That may mean working on your business during the night while holding a sleepy baby. Or talking to clients while chauffeuring teenagers; all examples of my day, by the way.


But remember that it’s not about the other side, it’s really about the lessons that you learn while on this side of your small business. The lessons of creativity, patience, thanksgiving, giving love when tired, receiving help when you need it, being joyful when life is unbalanced, moving forward when you’re lost and a whole host of other lessons that, when allowed to build your character, will serve you greatly on the other side of success.

Enjoy the climb to the top because when you get there there will be another mountain to climb.

This song, sung by Miley Cyrus, is a wonderful reminder.

Stay Focused

Running your own business can be challenging at times. It’s probably easier to let someone else deal with all the challenges and just collect a paycheck, but in today’s economy there’s not a lot of security in that scenario.

So how do I get past the challenges? How do I keep going when the going gets tough? How do I get back up when I stumble or fall down – and yes, I do fall down, just like everyone else does.

You’ve Been Summoned by The President


President Obama has called us all to help rebuild our community and our economy by volunteering our services. On this website, United We Serve, you can find opportunities to serve based on your interests and location. You can also register your projects so that others can find you.
As busy as I am, I love the idea that we all are responsible for the rebuilding of our nation and that we do that by something as simple as volunteering. Even the title is motivating, “United We Serve“.
