    Shares Well with Others

    In the years before I started my own business, I worked for the Lynchburg Regional Chamber of Commerce. One of the things I learned during that time is that chamber professionals share well with others. Need a sponsorship agreement? Ask Wendy. Need information about branding? Ask Cathy. Need to know how to handle a personnel [...]

    Tea Takes Time

    We were supposed to be on the lookout for a special Christmas present from The High Calling, according to Laura. She was so excited and at some point, even disclosed that it would come from France. I’m not sure which team member received the gift first, but I remember reading Deidra’s post, seeing the photos [...]

    Friend Vs. Client: The Facebook Fan Page Challenge

    What would you do? I recently received an invitation to become a Facebook fan of a friend’s new business, which just happens to be in direct competition with the business of a brand spanking new client. I want my friend to succeed in his business. I’m excited for him because he’s following his passion. I [...]

Unbeknownst to me, Dee waged a Twitter campaign to help me reach 2000 followers. A meeting in Charlottesville had me off the grid for [...]

    Coincidence or God Moment

    Last week I spoke at the Lynchburg Evening Aglow meeting and shared my story based on my work in progress – the book I’m writing. At the end of the meeting, several ladies prayed for me and one used the phrase “ready writer” in her prayer. Others who were there affirmed that phrase, which I [...]

    The Power of Friends During Career Transition

    I’ve been reading two new favorite books (The Power of Who and Say Yes to No) recently that echo the thoughts of another favorite Vital Friends (buy it new so you get the code). All three discuss the great value and power of friendships. I can think of no greater time to have positive friendships [...]

    God Showed Up as a Mailman

    It’s true. Today, instead of putting my mail in the mailbox at the street, like usual, my letter carrier came to my door to hand deliver my mail. He asked me if I was a consultant and what kind of work I do. And I told him. He then said for twenty years or so, [...]
