Shaking Out The Curated Life

A curated life. This is something that I have been meaning to talk about here but have been trying to figure out the best approach. It is something we face everyday, on the internet. Being an online ministry, it's easy to get caught up in the cycle. I want to break it and share what I'm thinking. It's like when the photographer tells you to breathe deep and shake your arms and shoulders, just so you'll relax and not look so stiff. I want to unstiffify things here.

Learn From Failure + Choose Grit

I find it so easy to see the success of other business owners and then walk away with my fake tail between my legs and head down. How do I measure up to that? Do you go through this too? It can get pretty discouraging seeing only the good stuff online. As a new business owner, I have experienced this pretty recently and so I thought I would share a few reminders that have helped me to stay focused on what really matters.

How To Reduce Stress - In A List!

For us as Americans, we know how to live stressful lives. Everything is go, go, GO. Big cities are filled with people coming and going, cars beeping and zooming. We have premade meals so that we have more time to work. There are watches, phones, tablets, and computers to keep lists, remind us of duties, and loads of information so that we can do more!

Book Review: The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown

So during the month of January I have been spending my time traveling for work and it's given me a chance to learn a lot about myself. My life coach/therapist suggested I read The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are by Brene Brown right before my trip. So I got to it and purchased the e-book on Amazon so that I could save room in my luggage. It's a pretty easy read and only took me a week in between work. I thought I would share a little bit about it with you!

3 Ways To Stay Motivated Working From Home

I recently shared how I started using a Bullet Journal to help me set priorities and get things done. I thought it would be just as helpful to share with you how I stay motivated working from home. It's easy to get distracted by home chores, browsing Facebook, and just not having someone to hold you accountable (other than yourself). Am I alone on this one?

Setting Priorities + The Bullet Journal: Review

One of the biggest things about being a successful entrepreneur is being able to prioritize tasks. Working from home is tricky. Especially if you used to work for someone else and in a location other than your living room. Since moving to NY and getting settled in, we made the decision that I would work in the home. That being said it is much harder to create a routine in the day-to-day and stick to it. Feels like you are on vacation when really you aren't. I have to pinch myself to snap out of it.

Why Should I Hire A Web Designer?

A web designer is someone who wraps up your dreams in a pretty package on the internet. There are so many things that go into making a site perfect. We all know that looks are important, but so is communication and easy to use navigation. A web designer spends hours researching and thinking about better ways to make the online experience more enjoyable. They live and breathe it. Kinda like how you might live and breathe your products, services or blog.

Artists - Singer/Songwriter Kayla Careese

This past fall I had the opportunity to fly out west, meet up with Kayla for the first time, and capture her as a new singer/songwriter. I learned so much through this new experience and being able to see Kayla's dreams become a reality is pretty inspirational.  I thought that just getting to take the photos and making a website would be awesome, but watching another artist trying to make it in the industry is even more fulfilling!

How To Define Priorities

Lately I have been feeling like I have 5 arms that are getting stretched to the max. I love details and giving 100% to what I am doing but at the same time I feel like I am getting no where. I think I spend about 50% of my days at home worrying about getting everything done and feeling accomplished. My brain is one big fuzz pile. If a brain could be fuzzy that is.

Permission to Pause

You know what it's like to live in a whirlwind right? Like you just can't keep up with all that you have going on in your life? Well, that is me this week. I love to put 100% into everything I do, but right now it seems impossible. As I was sitting here, thinking about what to share, the thought came into my mind that I just need to relax.
