All Opportunities are What you Make Them Positive or not

4 Reasons Why I Decided to Hire a Business Coach

Although I’ve run a successful business for 20 years, it’s never too late to re-invent yourself. Recently I found it was time to hire an outside opinion.

Do you Tip Photographers?

This is my dull, life-of-it’s-own ‘pandemic’ hair circa January 2021… I’d been cutting my own bangs & attacking split ends for more than a year. And I know I wasn’t the only one cutting my own hair! The salon is a luxury we’ve long taken for granted. My daughter cheerfully let me chop hers off...
