Money: It's the most difficult thing for people to openly talk about. But it's also one of the main predictors of divorce. In other words, these difficult discussions must be had. 
Money conversations are some of the most difficult. But with research indicating financial conflicts are the largest predictor of divorce, there’s little doubt that money talks must be had. Close…

In business, confidence is king. Do YOU believe your marketing pitch?

#business   #lifestyle   #freelancewriting  
When you're freelancing, you're an entrepreneur. You are selling a product, your product. Successful entrepreneurs have energy. You've seen it. Day in and day out, this energy gets them out of bed to work and keeps them in hot pursuit of their goals. Where does this energy come from? Confidence.

My top 4 apps for freelancing: 
There is an app for that. Whatever “that” is, there is likely a technological solution that strives to make it easier. But so many of these products fall short of making things more efficient and instead just add another level of clutter to your day. I have tested many apps and services over the ...

+Elizabeth Renter  You are gracious with the tone of your reply, Elizabeth.  Frankly, I wondered if you were a "real" person or some clever entity created to promote Playboy.  Obviously, you are the real deal.  One never knows here in cyberspace.

I'd written a reply on Saturday, but chose the Nexus 7 as the instrument, pecking one letter at a time with my right index finger.  Alas, I struck the wrong key and presto!  The Google+ page and text vanished.  Nothing of import was lost other than a few minutes of time, but who's counting?

A freelance writer oft spends more time cultivating editors and sources, rustlin' for assignments, building networks, negotiating, and getting paid than she does exercising the pen and keyboard. 

Back when I played the game, my ace-in-the-hole was the ability to see a story amidst the puzzles and haze of event and personality.  The world is rich with potential for the writer who sees culture and society as an endless series of stories.

Eventually I moved away from journalism into advertising, marketing, and public relations.  Ghost writing books was another lucrative gig.  I learned early that as long as I kept my ego in the background and wrote in the voice and style of my clients, the inflow of work remained steady.  They can have the byline.  I'll take the check.

One of my favorite genres was writing and directing corporate audio-visual productions to sell products, services, or ideas to a sharply targeted market.  For the writer, creating the "heard" word takes on a totally different character than the "read" word.

OK.  You caught me.  I'm adding my two-bits to your original premise -- though I'll admit, writing for hire was always glamorous to me.  Any tips or insight we can offer to up-and-coming writers adds real value to the universe.

Nothing boring about your work.   Anyway, one of my masters taught me that boredom comes from within -- an admonishment not necessary with No Final Drafts.

All the best with your new blog.  And stay in touch!

Love turmeric? What you might not know about this super spice: 
Using food as medicine is as old as time, but such so-called folk remedies often get a bad rap from the medical establishment.

I'm often asked how I "do it". I take that to mean: write, homeschool, parent, have hobbies, keep the bills paid, and maintain a relatively clean home. Lol. Here's a BIG part of my secret: 

#Writing   #Homeschool   #WorkFromHome  
You really don't have to look far to find a blog post on productivity hacks, managing your time better, or finding ways to fit more into each day. Some people dedicate their entire writing careers to selling these time-saving methods. I am not one of those people.

One of my personal tricks for getting shit done when I don't feel like it. :)

#productivity   #FreelanceWriting  
We've all been there—unmotivated, lacking inspiration. There may be things to do that we just can't find the energy for, or an empty schedule that could be filled with productivity and is instead wasted in front of the television or Internet. We often seek inspiration before we feel equipped to ...

Health insurance companies are cutting their lists of approved providers. In my latest for US News, I provide some tips on navigating these narrowed networks. 
#Health   #Insurance  
A narrowed network may mean changing doctors when you change health insurance or paying more.

Our favorite local restaurant for carry out and special occasions alike. Everyone I have brought here has nothing but good things to say. Truly fresh produce and amazing flavors.

Under new ownership. We frequented the old coffee shop at this location and will become regulars once again. Great coffee and great service. The furniture is comfortable and the WiFi is fast. :-)

Amazing vegetarian platter, great portion sizes, and an excellent price! I got carry-out but will definitely return to dine-in and try some new dishes.
