Most days I am very definitely a nerd in stilettos. But other days I feel more like a nerd on call. It is kind of fun, to tell the truth.

Never heard of #fyrefestival until 10 minutes ago on Twitter. Now it's my favorite thing on the internet. I can't wait for the sequel.

I am always deeply honored to be mentioned in the 'IQ Morning Report'!

As very busy small business owners and/or entrepreneurs our days can quickly spiral out of control if we are not planning and segmenting our tasks. The sad truth is that humans are lousy multitaskers and if we take on too many tasks that weren't planned or even thought out beyond, "Oh crap! I forgot all about that!", the result is that things don't get done, or get done in a haphazard kind of way which leaves you gritting your teeth at the end of the day and wondering just what in the world you actually did get done to any kind of acceptable standard.

Much as you plan your family activities such as feeding them and getting them off to school on time, feeding the family pet, throwing in a load of laundry on your way out the door to run errands or head to your office, it makes sense to batch similar business tasks together in a way that creates an easy flow in your day.

For instance, let's batch some things under the topic of "networking". This can cover myriad activities such as making or returning phone calls. Writing thank you cards or even articles. And if you think that writing blogs and articles doesn't fall under networking, think about why you are doing it. You are reaching out to an ever-expanding audience and sharing your tips, tools, and expertise. You are thoughtfully and deliberately connecting with your audience. That is networking.


If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail without even realizing it.
It is a proven fact that when people plan and avoid distractions as much as possible they accomplish much more.


Work backward from your goal. Visualize what the goal is, determine what it will look like when done and then break it down into the requisite small tasks.
Depending on how your mind works plan each day in advance or use one day a week to plan for each day in the new week. Google calendar is great for this, as is Evernote. Or you can even set out your plans in the evening before you go to bed so it is fresh in your mind when you wake up the next morning.


1) Ideal tools are cloud based so you have access no matter where you are. As mentioned above, Evernote is one of the best tools out there.

2) Again, depending on how your mind works, a notepad and pen or a DayMinder might be best for you. I happen to use a combination of both virtual and paper.

3) A large whiteboard or wall calendar are also great planning tools. I use both because the huge calendar allows me to see my week at a glance and mentally track where I am now and where I need to be at any given time. I may just cast a quick glance at it, but it is a very helpful reminder about how quickly time passes if you are wasting too much time running around stomping out fires of your own making. The whiteboard keeps my to-do list visible at all times and there is a lot of satisfaction in being able to work my way through my tasks and begin with a clean board the next day. I don't go to bed mad!

4) And finally, when you are planning your work segments, be sure to create a reasonable estimate of the time needed to begin and complete each task. It will make your work flow much easier to handle when you know just how much time you have to spend during the day.

Our minds think in pictures so if there is something you really, really, really want to occur in your life, create a vision board that allows you to see your dreams/goals/desires physically as well as in your mind's eye.

To be self-actualized is to live the best life you can live. With self-actualization, you achieve expert control of your creativity, spontaneity, and problem-solving skills.

1) Stop measuring yourself against others. You are unique.
2) Accept yourself with the understanding that you can always do and be better. 3) Understand that YOU are in control of your thoughts and actions.
4) Never stop growing.
