My Favorite Treadmill for Small Spaces

Are you living in a house that doesn't have a designated room or space for home exercise equipment?Do you live in a climate where exercising outside for a good portion of the year just isn't ideal?When thinking about moving daily, what is a simple way to be successful?Have you considered a treadmill?Here are my answers. I DO have a designated studio for home exercise, BUT there is no window. During those months when the climate is not optimal for walking outside, it's nice to have a smaller treadmill to use that doesn't lord over my entire living room/dining room. Walking [...]

5 of my favorite companies (and discounts for you!)

You've heard all about "influencers" and "brand ambassadors." Maybe you know them as "affiliates". I'm none of these. I'm just a girl. Standing in front of a company. Asking it to give discounts to her friends. (Ok, really. I'm all of them. I just wanted to use that line from Notting Hill.) But that is kinda sorta how it happened. With me standing in front of specific products. First with an online meal-planning/recipe-organizing site. Then protein bars. There was the planner I fell in love with. And the monthly Instagram training membership. Followed by the most luscious body scrub I've [...]

Tips from the experts on increasing Instagram reach

I'm an Instagram enthusiast. Encouraged to join the platform almost 3 years ago by a younger gal (STAHP. Not too much younger, but . . . OK, sigh, definitely younger) I will now heartedly admit: I like it there. For two and a half of those years, I wasn't really "good" at Instagram. I didn't know what I was doing, supposed to do, or how to do whatever "it" was. Knowing that I wanted to utilize the platform more effectively to make connections for my business, I decided it was time to pony up and learn from the experts. Ah, [...]

Don’t be a jerk – a “no, thank you” will suffice

I was the jerk referred to in the title. And when I realized what I had done, I made an intentional decision to make amends. Quickly. Sometimes I forget. I forget that for 10 years (next month, 11) I have used social media to build my personal business. And Since 2018, I've supported small businesses through the adventure over at Underground Events. So, what the heck happened? I got snarky. I have learned a LOT about social media since my earliest days of making black & white statements or passive-aggressive remarks to competitors. In the beginning, I cared a ton [...]

New site. Who this?

I literally don't know where to begin. But excuse me if I simply start by . . . starting. Instead of trying to figure it all out before beginning. My blog took a major back-seat to everything else in life in 2019 when I abandoned a personal project affectionately known as "50-Before-50". Not only did I NOT finish 50 activities before my 50th birthday on July 23 of that year, but I haven't written a blog post since that time. Social media posts? Oh, heck yeah. I've become quite the content writer. A new follow-up book to "Confessions of a [...]
