Self-Care: Why To Fill Your Cup Before Shit Hits The Fan

Self-Care: Why To Fill Your Cup Before Shit Hits The Fan

It’s time to stop fooling ourselves that self-care is optional.

We need to take really good care of ourselves during the good times so when the bad shit happens, we have the strength and reserve to handle it.

Notice I didn’t say if bad shit happens. I said when bad shit happens because bad shit happens to all of us.

SEO is Dead

SEO is Dead

As an entrepreneur, how do you connect with your target audience and build brand visibility so that your audience can find you?  In order to build your visibility, there’s a vital component called SEO, aka search engine optimization, that you just cannot ignore. I admit, SEO is not the sexiest part of doing business.  In fact, most lady bosses I know have a love-hate relationship with figuring out how to get their content on the 1st page of Google, Yahoo, or Bing.  But let’s face it, there’s nothing fun about coming up last in a Google search while your competitors are being found before you.

Digital Self Care

Digital Self Care

Over the summer of 2016, there were several shootings throughout the US and international terrorist incidents. And they happened one right after the other. As the media coverage increased, it became harder and harder for me to focus on my work as posts, alerts, and messages kept popping up in platforms and tools, and on digital devices.

Then one day, a shooting had gone live and instantly went viral. I completely broke down at my laptop. I then realized I had to get out, so I put on my sneakers and went on a really long walk in Portland’s Washington Park. I cried through most of it. Strangers gave understanding looks and a few offered hugs along the way. Come to find out, we were there for the same reason: to find perspective while grieving. I mourned for all victims of that summer, and their families and loved ones. Every time I closed my eyes, I saw those videos playing over and over again. It had simply become too much.

How To TAP INTO Your Intuition LIKE THE Boss THAT YOU ARE

How To TAP INTO Your Intuition LIKE THE Boss THAT YOU ARE

A couple of years ago I was offered an incredible job.  It was everything that I was looking for- great salary, amazing location, and fantastic exposure.  But as I sat there looking at the contract something inside was telling me to say no.   It made no sense to me.  I had made tons of pro and con lists.  I had asked most of my friends and family.  From all sides, it seemed like the right decision.  And yet, the knot in my stomach wouldn’t go away.  But instead of listening to it, I told myself that I was probably nervous, and I went ahead and signed on the dotted line.
