If you have not followed through with commitment before, here is a challenge that can be rewarding: Get on Social Media and use her for all she got! (That is if we were to put Social Media in human form, then yes she would be a woman!) A number of people transition from just writers into authors with a published book or e-book. Hooray! That is so awesome and they feel accomplished. So, wait, is there a problem? …

No matter what profession you are in, we could all improve our relationship with money. Living paycheck-to-paycheck has come to such a norm for most people that they are led to believe that is the only way to live. I refuse to think that I am going to die paying my bills on a monthly basis. My debt-free goals will make it possible to pay my ongoing bills (utilities, property taxes, service providers, etc.) annually. …

If you want to be great then you have to unlock the gift that lays dormant inside of you. It is a great benefit to listen to people that step out of their comfort zone daily to achieve their goals with life-changing actions.

I have learned a lot about my writing over the last fifteen years. I have been working toward becoming an author for a long time, but every distraction life threw at me — resulted in an abandoned manuscript. At 12 years old, I enjoyed writing scary stories because I loved Goosebumps and thrillers.

As my suspense-writing pre-teen and teenage years passed, I enjoyed writing inspirational and Christian books. …


A question such as, “When is a suitable time to quit?” is rarely answered because many people do not believe in quitting anything. Not addressing this question, however, can render more harm than good if one does not face the harsh reality when something is taking a turn for the worst and the wise choice would be to quit.

Whether you are an entrepreneur, business owner, or working in corporate America, manners go a long way.

It is sad to say that in today’s time, the fast-paced busyness has overcome common courtesy many times. The digital world has overrun our thoughts, feeling, and most importantly our manners.

I remember between the ages of 5 and 17, I could not enter a room full of adults without saying some form of salutation. If I did not do that, I would get those, Whose child are you? And if they don’t whup you, I will! looks on their faces. Respect for…
