When it comes to balancing our budget we’d all love to be able to save more money. Most people use budgeting apps to help stay on top of their finances. These apps are great, but they mostly just tell you how much you’ve spent and how much more you have left for the rest of the month. I’m a big believer that anything can be made better with a plan and saving money is no exception. Here are some ways to stay organized and save money. Read more
A question I’m often asked is how did I go from having the idea for ListProducer.com and my book Listful Thinking to what they’ve become today?
The short answer is a lot of work.
Making an idea a reality takes a lot of research and planning. When you’re first starting out all this extra work can be a tough hurdle for people.
Especially as it can take a while before you start to see the fruits of your labor.
If you are trying to start your own business or discover your next big thing, then I have some help for you! My friend Dorie Clark is giving away her FREE 42 page workbook to help you get your idea off the ground.

When this post goes live, I’ll be in Puerto Rico catching some desperately needed sun and relaxation (and cocktails) before the holiday season. It’s all part of my plan to recharge and renew. My husband Jay and I have done a lot of travelling this year with trips to Mexico, San Francisco (we got a tour of Google!) and even Orlando. I’ve really enjoyed our vacations and I’m definitely planning to take more trips next year — hopefully overseas!
I take travel pretty seriously and always prepare well in advance. And when I say prepare — I mean stalk TripAdvisor, blogs, Rick Steves guides and travel sites for weeks on end. OH and I ask everyone who has ever been to that destination what they recommend.
Now there’s another resource in my arsenal. It’s called the Trip Scout app. They provide self-guided city tours. With local tour guides who explain about the local history, culture, and food as you go along. My friend Konrad who blogs at World Venture Project created it. Read more
Everyone has their “thing” — that one big goal they often dream about, tell their friends about and picture themselves achieving. For me it was writing a book and it’s been thrilling to reach that goal.
If you follow this blog regularly you’ve probably heard of my friend Terri Trespicio. I’m especially proud of her for reaching one of those goals that she’s spoken about often and dreamed big about.
