Forgiveness. We’ve all heard the word before, but do we truly understand the meaning of it? Do we really know how to forgive in a way that’s healthy for us? What are we supposed to do when someone has hurt us in a way that feels unforgivable and won’t apologize? How do we navigate the difficult times when forgiveness seems completely out of the question. And finally, do we truly understand the impact that choosing not to forgive can have on our own well-being?

Most people who start their own business are doing so on a bootstrapped basis, meaning that they do not have a lot of resources to turn to as it relates to investing in their business.

 

They might use free trials of programs and refuse to outsource and try to handle everything on their own, simply because there is no other way to do it. This is common for any solopreneur who is making their first venture into a new business,

Who else is so excited that summer is HERE?

We get to enjoy sunlit outdoors until 9pm, wear our bright colored dresses, lounge by the water, decorate our homes with flower bunches, and get more involved with community activities and events. Summer evening get-togethers become the new norm, we suddenly eat a lot healthier, and restaurants are chosen for their patio aesthetics. The kids are out of school and everyone’s itching to make the most of this favorite season!

Especially for the solopreneur, it’s easy to keep everything on your plate at least at the beginning of your business. In fact, some people begin to develop their business this way and don’t understand the negative habits that they have associated with trying to manage everything on their own.

Momentum Drops and You Feel More Hot Mess than Superhero

At the beginning of your business adventure, you’re bootstrapped and probably don’t have the funds necessary to hire someone else to help you.

It initially seems relatively easy to keep doing everything on your own in your business. In fact, far too many of us, and in particular women, are guilty of doing it.

We assume that there’s only one right way of doing things and it’s our way.

We assume that because we’ve been successful in business by doing things all on our own for months or even years, that it’s best to keep things within our own house and manage everything on our own.

So, this is a difficult thing for me to write about, as it’s an incredibly personal struggle that I’ve just recently been able to overcome. It’s something I struggled with for a long time, completely alone and in silence. It’s not something that’s easy for me to talk about, but it’s an incredibly stigmatized topic that needs someone to shine light on it. So that’s what I’m here to do today.

What is vaginismus?

Happy Monday! As you settle down for the start to a fresh week (perhaps with an extra cup of coffee), let’s reflect on how we spend our weekday lunch breaks. Obviously, every company structure varies from the next and each office setting is different—but overall, can we agree there are some consistencies?

Like Consistency #1: We need to give ourselves a lunch break.

Did you know only 1 in 5 Americans take advantage of their standard one-hour lunch breaks?

Have you ever had to question what “friendship” means to you? Are you tired of not really knowing who your real friends are? Do you want to know how to build strong, beautiful friendships that will last for years to come? If you’ve answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you’re in the right place!

I’ve never been someone who particularly enjoys exercising in and of itself. Sure, I’ve found activities that I’ve enjoyed that just so happen to also provide exercise (I’ve always loved dancing, for instance), but I’m definitely not some sort of fitness guru by any means! My journey with fitness has been a struggle, particularly in the last year or so. I’ve struggled to stay consistent with anything I was doing, which resulted in not getting desirable results.

Yes, I’m talking to you who has 3+ credit cards with more than last month’s gas on them.  I’m talking to you with a credit score that makes you cringe. I’m talking to you about a subject we hate talking about… but is so necessary to discuss and—what’s more—take immediate action for the betterment of your future.

I feel like I need to give the full disclosure that I’m not a financial consultant (for those of you who know me,
