Juggling Multiple Businesses? Please. I'm Somebody's Mama.

Even though I'm running Flash of Brilliance and I've got lots on my plate with administrative work, graphics and websites, I couldnt resist when one of my clients unveiled another business opportunity to me. Now I'm running FOB and I Got The Wraps and the last two weeks have been crazy (but rewarding). I had to take some time to strategize how I would give both businesses the time and attention needed so that they both flourish. There isn't any doubt that I can do it as I remember...Please.…

August is back to school time, back to business basics for all, what can we learn?

Insanity is doing the same thing(s) over and over and expecting different results. This is true for business too. Doing nothing and expecting new results in your business is insane as well.

I challenge you to do some evaluation and look at August as a new beginning. Change what has not been working, what you do not enjoy, or what you do not…

Every morning in Africa... must read!

“Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.”

It REALLY works! On to my 2nd Wrap

If you've been following, then you know all about the excitement with The Ultimate Body Applicator. Wednesday night I wrapped again - which makes wrap #2 and this time I didnt bloat. When I took it off, my skin felt really good. Even when I pinched the fat, it felt different. Before I could grab the fat and feel like little bumps and lumps. I dont feel that now. I realize my stomach has always been a…

To cuff or not to cuff... your trousers!

Cuffs are the turned-up margin of trouser bottoms. This feature serves the basic purpose of protecting pants from fraying or any other kind of damage from wet and muddy conditions. Although King Edward VII is considered the originator of the traditional cuffed pant in the 1890s, they became an American standard in the early 20th century.

Since then, cuffed pants remain a mark of quality in bespoke tailored pants as well as off-the-rack pants. They should be regarded as a stylish… Continue

I finally tried the wrap!

This past Sunday night I tried The Ultimate Body Applicator for the first time. It was about 9:30 at night and by then, I had eaten a whole bunch (throughout the day), and had been sitting in my office doing work. I don't know about you, but when the day winds down...My mid section is definitely bigger. Nothing compared to the "first wake up-stomach looks flat" version I see in the mornings. So I thought, this is the…

........Avoid alot of tension on wet/moist hair. Its very easy to pull our hair up in a ponytail or a bun when it gets hot or after swimming.Unfortunately when your hair is wet it is fragile and easy to pop or break with too much tension, especially around the edges. To aviod this you can try pinning it ...up with cushioned hairpins or doing two-strand twist. Gives you a reason to try a new… Continue

I got the WRAPS! now you can Feel Slimmer and Sexier

Just a couple of weeks ago, I was hired by Carla Powell, member of the BFHS network, for a graphic design project for her business.

“The man who stops advertising to save money is like the man who stops the clock to save time”

Why Is It... A man wakes up in the morning after sleeping in an advertised bed, washes with an advertised soap, shaves with an advertised razor, sits down and drinks advertised tea or coffee, drives to work in an advertised car and writes with an advertised pen. Then... He refuses to advertise, saying "Advertising doesn't work". But when his business fails, he finally advertises: "Business for Sale" - Anonymous
