Update! 9 Days


In nine days, I’ll be leaving the corporate world to pursue my career as a full-time entrepreneur. I couldn’t be more excited! I’ve been talking over lots of details with my husband, planning and dreaming of the possibilities. As I wrap up my work with my current employer, my main job is to teach and…

Becoming a Bald Babe


If there’s one thing that can stress, depress or inspire us on a daily basis, it’s our hair. Add thinning areas, split ends and texture to the mix and you’re in for a long night. Over the past four years, I’ve been loving, hating and tolerating my hair. Some days I feel amazing and others,…

Let’s Get Down to Business!

But after trying everything you can, lack of motivation or resources, you either go with what you have or start over. I’ve chosen the latter. I’m starting over with my entrepreneurial endeavors.

Fall and All


Fall is here, fall is here. It’s a wonderful time of year, baby! I would include some awesome image, but my camera is in the shop (cue the violins). I’ve been away for awhile, mostly working and being inspired to create a plan for my business. This is probably the biggest leap of faith that…
