You hire house cleaners? part ONE Nov 16, 2022

I employed house cleaners about 5 years ago. At first, they came once a month to help with some deeper cleaning in my house. I was working full time and found that the occasional bathroom and floor cleaning just weren't cutting it.

And I wanted to spend more of my free time with my family.

Share until you care Nov 15, 2022

Remember the old phrase "sharing is caring"?

In my 2 minutes of research, I couldn't find where it originated, but it is fun to see how many interpretations the phrase has.

Which makes sense, because it is an old phrase that has been used by people all over the world. Of course it will change and...

I made you look Nov 14, 2022

If you haven't been online for more than a week, then maybe you haven't heard the new Meghan Trainor song "I made you look"!

But if you have been online, you've probably heard it 100 times today. No? Just me?

It is STUCK in my head.

98% of people on social say this Nov 10, 2022

That could be a SLIGHT exaggeration, but not much.

I would say about 98% of people I talk to about social media tell me this: "I don't want to be famous, I just want my business to succeed." 

... or some version of that.

"I don't want to be an influencer..."

"I don't want to be the face...

Excuses excuses Nov 09, 2022

"Sorry I didn't post yesterday..."

"I know it's been a while..."

"So many of you have asked where I've been..."

"We've been so slammed with the sale which is why we haven't been on here..."

Can I tell you a really big secret about excuses like these?


Sure, they care. Of course....

Accident-al good problems Nov 08, 2022

My son got in a car accident last night.

He is ok. The other driver is ok. 

We are thanking our stars for all involved being unharmed.

The cars are not ok. At all.

It rocks your world as a parent to get that call. "Mom, I've been in an accident."

On one hand, "phew, he can call. He seems...

Every year.

Every single year there are posts and memes and articles and complaints about how the holidays creep in earlier and earlier.

"What about Thanksgiving?" the people cry.

"It's all about the dollar," others lament.

"Can't we enjoy November without Christmas music being shoved down our...

Deleted? Disappeared? Nov 04, 2022

Yesterday I wrote a blog post that I thought nailed it!

It was gone today.

Last week I created a Reel I worked on for WAY longer than I typically spend on Reels and felt like it was pretty cool. It was a 90-second Reel and it would never post. Couldn't save it. Couldn't make it a...

Reels are trendy Nov 03, 2022

TikTok videos are trendy.

Trends are great for a few minutes of fun. And to get new eyeballs on your content and offers.

But the very word "trendy" in social media is defined as being relevant "within a short period of time."

A short period of time.

Trends are not strategies.

Reels and TikToks...

No time to create Nov 02, 2022

Listen, I get it.

Sometimes it feels like there just isn't enough time in the day. Especially when running a business.

Especially when you feel like you're doing multiple jobs just to keep your business running.

And then you're supposed to CREATE CONTENT?

It can seem like the last thing on your...

Not for you Nov 01, 2022

The most difficult thing to learn in marketing is also one of the most generous.

That is this phrase:

This is not for you.

But we want EVERYONE to buy from us. Because that means more sales, right?


You are not for everyone. I am not for everyone.

The more you can tell people who your...
