Welcome to my new site.
I've been blogging, hosting events, building companies and spending way too much time online since 2007.
Somewhere along the way I lost my love for the blogging platform, it became too much noise, too much self promotion and not enough heart, not enough love, not enough good to outweigh all the crazy.
I deleted my old site, copied over a few of my favorite posts, and wanted to see what would happen if I started from scratch. No plan, no editorial calendar, no analytics, just a desire to see if I could love it again.
This new blog is an experiment to see if a serial entrepreneur and burned out blogger can enjoy blogging again.
I don't know if it will work, but I'm excited to try it again.
Now, About Me...
Well for starters . . .
I’m a wife and mother of 5 boys, a wonderful stepdaughter, and a rescued dog. We live outside of Nashville, TN and just about every flat surface in our house is taken up with book, athletic equipment, legos and a (quite possibly) a little dog hair.
What I do . . .
I serve as the COO of Propel Women, a leadership initiative founded by Christine and Nick Caine.
I'm also the author of "Breaking Busy" which releases in January of 2016.
What I used to do….
Who doesn’t love a good rags to riches story? Yep, that’s how it started for me.
Eight years ago, we lost everything when my husband’s job came to a sudden and drastic end. That’s when I got very, very serious about figuring out how to create a business on the Internet and started my own online business.
I have co-founded BlissDom and BlissDom Canada, the single largest international women’s small business conference in the world (now that was a mouthful!) I also co-founded and have served as the CCO (Chief Creative Officer) of Blissful Media Group. And it all started when I founded the magazine for women, Blissfully Domestic.
Through these major events, I’ve helped thousands of men and women start successful businesses online. (Click on over to this page to read what they have to say.) I was a consultant and strategist who has worked with and advised Fortune 500 companies and small businesses, from tech companies to your favorite household brands.
You might have seen me . . .
I was featured in the books “Good Enough Is the New Perfect” and “The Catalyst Leader: 8 Essentials for Becoming a Change Maker‘ as one of the top 50 Young Leaders in the Nation.
I once got to pretend I was a model thanks to Epiphanie Camera Bags.
In addition, I was a featured entrepreneur in Sheryl Sandberg’s site, “Lean In.”
And, there was that time I told the world I was over all the self-imposed stress we put on ourselves on The Today Show-
And one more time on the Today Show promoting parental sanity :)
I do not have an assistant, and like to keep life manageable, so I do not have my email listed. Let's connect on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook.
