When The Cats Away, The Mice Go To The Mall Shopping!

A little retail therapy is sometimes exactly what is needed when the husband goes hiking with the boy scouts and the wife and daughter are left alone for a day.  Today Ashley and I had a fabulous girls day together.  Now don’t get me wrong, we love spending time with my husband too, but every

It’s Not About the Nail

Okay so I saw the best you tube video ever made regarding male and female communications today as it was played on the morning news show.  I seriously could not stop laughing when I watched it.   It is a MUST WATCH FOR EVERYONE!  I kid you not.  It is only 1 minute 42 seconds, but

Remember the Mothers!

This Sunday will be Mother’s Day, so I wanted to give everyone a reminder a few days early so you can start now picking out a special gift for the Mothers in your life.  This is especially a friendly hint to all the husbands out there whose wives are raising your children :).  Everyone has

Tips for Being a Good Communicator

A while back I was able to attend a seminar by Dr. John Lund on communication. He gave some amazing advice on how to communicate better with others and I absolutely loved learning from him. I thought I would share some tips he gave that you can incorporate into your communication with others. The best

A “Not-So-Coincidence” Day

As those of you who follow my blog know, I try to write each day about the lessons I am learning in my life.  Those who know me well know that I also don’t believe in coincidences in life. Rather, I firmly believe that things happen for a reason. So the events of today led

“Don’t Hate Me Because I am Beautiful.” (Forbes Article)

I remember well those words spoken in a Pantene shampoo commercial back in the 1980’s. The attractive woman with the fabulous hair looked right into the camera and made the plea “Don’t hate me because I am beautiful.” That phrase became front and center once again earlier this year when UK columnist Samantha Brick wrote

The “Man Cold”

This week my husband came down with a horrible sinus cold, which he then managed to pass on to me and my daughter.  Fabulous!  So this week all three of us are suffering from sinus colds, however, it is absolutely incredible to see the difference in how each of us manages to cope with it.  Ashley

Girl Power!

This week seems to be a week full of amazing Girl Power!   First it was my BYU presentation to the Women Entrepreneurs who were all AWESOME ladies.   And then today I sat down and spent several hours with Mia Love, who is running for Congress here in Utah.  She is AMAZING!  She is real and

I am an Entrepreneur!

“Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen and others make it happen” – Michael Jordan Today was a great day.  I was able to go down to BYU to speak to the students involved in the Women’s Entrepreneurship program at BYU.  First, let me say how much you feel your age
