I can be a cynic. (I prefer realist. But those around me may debate the semantics.) In spite of this, I also have a major crush on gratitude. Strike that. I’m in deep with gratitude. We’re in a committed relationship with matching tattoos and a DVR full of episodes of House Hunters. Not only do… Continue reading Being Thankful is my fave.
Stop driving around Westside Costa Mesa looking for a space. We’re on step 1.3. That is step 392. …or keep driving around. Have at it. But erase the idea of any of these places being a real thing quite yet. Woof. I love an empty warehouse full of potential and dreams something awful. kbye.
Pro-tip for those wanting to do something really badly that they’re also really afraid of: Post about it all over social media, write a bunch of blog posts about it, link those blog posts to more social media, start another instagram account and ask people to follow it even though there’s nothing to post about.… Continue reading So, you want to make a breakeven analysis.
I recently started running. Again. (there’s a lot to unpack there, but we’ll shelf that for another time). Part of my inspiration in getting my butt in gear and dusting off my tennis shoes was listening to an episode of The A Few Things podcast with Coach Chris Bennett, Global Head Coach for Nike. In… Continue reading Already smashing records over here.
As mentioned earlier this week, the decision that I have truly been mulling over and will continue to be tortured by is what color to paint the door of my lil shoppie shop. Valid, yes. Imperative, no. It’s been about 4 days since my declaration of intent and before we lean too far into “remember… Continue reading Ok, but seriously. What do I do first?
Googled “Google Business Plan” My suspicions were correct. There’s a template. While working at Kean, my EarPods died. Right smack in the chorus of 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover. If I’m going to be a successful business woman, I must bring a second pair of headphones with me wherever I go. Must always have… Continue reading Work Log (I)
I read once that it’s important to talk about goals as declarative statements, so that’s what I’m trying to do. Turning “I’m working on possibly opening up a store” into “I’m opening a store!” Changing my “Can you help me?’s” to “I’d love your help.” The article even took it a step further by talking… Continue reading It’s happening? It’s happening. It is happening.
I am sure that at least three people read my post yesterday and are now reading this. I am sure because I received exactly 2 texts and 1 comment. Friend Who Read Number 1 (hi, Sarah) asked me a very important question: What’s step one? My answer to her was basically of version of “WHO THE… Continue reading First Things First
This is my 487th great idea. There will surely be 487 more. And then, 487 after that. But hopefully somewhere in between all of those great ideas is success. That’s the goal, right? But in the meantime, I’m living off the buzz of the “this is it” feeling. The “fool proof” feeling. The “Sorry, guys.… Continue reading A New New
My body now. The handful of fat around my stomach; The slaloms right above the backside of my underwear– all soft and a little bright pink; The way my thighs slope inward together towards my knees; They are marked with dozens of dotted scars fading from rust to pink to purple to gray; The nape… Continue reading My Body Now
