Goals are great, but if you don’t have a game plan how you’ll get there, then setting goals is nothing more than an exercise in futility.

Is it January yet?
This isn’t a bah-humbug post. This is a hug for some; and a realization for others.
Not everyone loves the holidays. Every time we see a commercial or post that talks about being with family and friends during the holidays, it’s like getting stabbed over and over with a butter knife.
Not everyone is with family and friends for the holidays. Many have lost loved ones, either through death or estrangement, others are miles away.
The house is exceptionally empty, quiet and lonely from Thanksgiving through New Years. It may be empty, quiet and lonely the rest of the year too but at a time of office parties and family gatherings it’s only magnified that some are without loved ones during the holidays.
I know it’s natural for many to want to extend an invitation to those you know may be alone at Christmas. It’s the season of giving, so why wouldn’t you open your home to others? You can’t stand the thought of someone being alone. Continue reading
Recently Scentsy has had a big push on embracing the millennials, meeting them where they are. That means doing business differently than we used to in the olden days.
I’m over 50 years old, so I can say this: I don’t always get the millennials.
This weekend I had an opportunity to hear Dr. Derick “Sandy” Hulme speak at Alma College. He was sharing successes of Alma students who went on to change the world and make a difference. One example he shared was how a group of college students did research and made recommendations to the U.N. (as in the real United Nations).
One of the students asked him how it was that a group of college kids could figure out a solution, but all the old folks (40 & 50 year olds) could not. He responded:
“Old folks can’t figure it out because they’re stuck remembering all the things that didn’t work”
Then it hit me. I AM ONE OF THOSE OLD FOLKS! I am having a hard time embracing this “whole millennial phenomena” because I’m stuck remembering all the things that didn’t work. Continue reading
I haven’t though for concern it would come off bitchy. No one likes a bitch.
However, it needs to be said. I’ll try to make it a Fluff Sandwich, lest anyone get offended.
In my circle, we have a motto. It’s RPR! I don’t use exclamation points often, but RPR! has one.
RPR! Stands for Read, People, Read!
If you want to save time trying to figure out how to do something, who do call, what order something needs to be done, and to do so as quickly as possible – read people, read.
I’m not talking about extensive instructions or manuals. I get that some people don’t have patience for that – self included sometimes.
Rather I’m talking about social media posts or in some cases, short blog posts. Here are instructions how to make your life easier; essentially here are the answers to the test – right here. You just need to read it.
Prime example: Continue reading
