Just realizing, again, how important it is to have daily ritual.

I think I don’t really have one, but in truth, I do.

I really want, desire, long for… a better one. Or the discipline to at least follow that desire and do what I must in order to align with what I want.

I awake in the morning. And not every morning, but it is getting more frequent, I remember to think about something grateful or good the moment I’m aware that I’m awake.


Optimysm. Sanity. Presence.

You want a web presence. For that special thing you offer our world. For your business. It’s a big deal. And staying sane through the process of creating it is too!

Not only is your sanity important, but so is the short-term goal of getting you launched.

Here are six ways to help you stay optimystical*, sane and true to you—during your webification process.


When you’re just starting out on the web, getting your blog or web presence thing happening, there are three really important pieces you’ll want to keep your eye peeled for.

Most people get frazzled just thinking about the technology part (the pieces that are actually getting easier and easier). We get so distracted thinking about all the parts we don’t yet know or think we need to know before we can get started, that we actually forget about the planning.

But one of the three keys to creating a great web presence is being able to answer the question of what you do and who you do it for.


Best of ’09 is a series of posts inspired by Gwen Bell’s The Best of 09 Blog Challenge. It’s a challenge designed to help me write more and rediscover more grateful moments in my 2009! Hopefully, 31 posts in 31 days ;)

Workshop or conference. Was there a conference or workshop you attended that was especially beneficial? Where was it? What did you learn?

Best Workshop

Best workshop was Mark Silver’s Business Momentum six-week teleclass. Mark believes in nurturing the heart to sustain and build a business. So much goodness came out of this course. Mark even turned it into a one-year course because the content is so meaty and totally worth the investment of my time, money and energy.


Permission To Write

October 9, 2009

Or How To Scare Yourself Write to The Edge

I’ve noticed this thing, it’s in me and a lot of the wonderfully creative ambitious women I talk to everyday, this idea that we need permission.

Permission to be ourselves. Permission to follow our hearts & dreams. Permission to receive and allow in the giving from others. And when it comes to your technology and getting your blog on, spattering your web pages with words, with the juice of your heart and giving yourself permission to write. Permission to call yourself a writer.
