Where I Came From

Where I Came From

I was 17 the first time I started running the office of a business.

I remember getting the phone call from my boyfriend at the time who had found himself sitting in a pile of paperwork at year-end, saying… “I need some help.”

He was a few years older than me and had been running a successful business for a couple of years at that point but was handling all of the office work by himself and as it tends to work out, things grow and it becomes more than just one person can handle.

You see, I had been working at the local veterinary clinic for a few years at that point and was in charge of a lot of paperwork, invoicing, sales transactions, etc. So I had sufficient experience to start organizing and getting a system put into place within his business.

Yes, you have freedom. Yes, you have balance. Yes, you run your own business, Yippee!

But you guys… you don’t get to go enjoy them if you’re NOT DOING THE WORK, not if you want to keep them at least.

The work must come first.

I’m not saying it’s the most important thing… well, maybe I am. Continue reading “The Work Comes First”

Turn the Page

Turn the Page

SOMETIMES YOU MUST TURN THE PAGE. SIMPLY BECAUSE YOU DESERVE TO FLY.

Every morning I write. I write about the life I’m dreaming of. I write about what I’m creating. I write about what I want.

I let the words flow and sometimes it comes out as something too beautiful NOT to share… Continue reading “Turn the Page”
