Confession: This message has been trying to evolve out of me since August – and if you’re on my mailing list, you’ll recognize pieces (and see new things) – but the whole message needed to be expressed.

August was me busting out of the chrysalis, and realizing that the world didn’t look the same at all. I’ve been running out most of the year knowing that something was changing, and feeling a little bit in limbo because I wasn’t sure just what was around the horizon.

It was an ordinary night. Until I scrolled through my Twitter feed. One word stood out to me: Charlottesville.

And my heart sank. UVA. And my heart sank some more.

(Ironic, as the uniform of popped collars, sundresses, and North Face jackets is nothing but superficial.) For those of you who don’t know my heritage, I’m multiracial.

It’s a brand new year – are you feeling it?

Your business needs big dreams. Intentions will help get you there.

If you’re new here, I set intentions – life + biz – every month to get clear on the energy I most want to be in for the month. It also helps me stay really focused on what I most want to achieve for the month. If you want to set your own, you can grab this workbook to help you start out.

Do you recap your journey through the year? I LOVE this concept because it gives you time to really consider what you accomplished, what you learned, and what might be coming next…AND it gives you time to celebrate your wins again.

2016 was a 9 year – all about completions. Closing the door. Clearing. Maybe even reaping what we sowed. How did this play out for me? Well..let’s see.

1ST QUARTER (JANUARY–MARCH):

Working from 9-5….

So, hard to believe now…but 1st quarter I still had a day job. I was working part time with an inbound marketing agency,

So, it’s Mercury Retrograde…what does that mean for your business?

If you’re not familiar with Mercury Retrograde, this is the time when you’ll hear people complaining of broken computers…or losing all their data…or having those pesky exes mysteriously showing up.

Mercury retrograde is when Mercury appears to be going backwards in the sky. Since Mercury rules communication and travel, anything related to this can go a little…haywire. Don’t fret  – it’s NOT solely a bad thing.

But what does Mercury Retrograde mean for your business?

You’ll often hear “Don’t sign contracts. Don’t make big plans!
