The Lemon Tree That Did….

Need to be encouraged today? Here is something to encourage you with: Recently I received a lemon tree plant from one of my dearest friends. When she handed it to me it really looked like nothing. All that was there was dirt. All of my other container plants I was growing were prospering wildly; then there was this little container full of soil sitting there.

I almost dismissed it and threw it away. I almost wrote it off that maybe I should pitch it because it probably wasn’t going to grow anyway. By faith, I continued to check it on it daily holding on by a thread of hope, that perhaps it ‘might’ still have a chance. I was gone this weekend and when I returned, I couldn’t believe my eyes! The little lemon tree now had not just one, but TWO sprouts coming out from the soil standing tall as could be! I only doubted because I could not have seen the root system!

Are You A Mom or Dad Looking For Work? We Are Hiring!!!

I am not sure why this just came across my mind…but a light bulb just finally turned on. There are so many mothers out there that have kids especially kids with special needs. My heart has so much compassion for parents caring for special needs children. So many parents that I am interviewing for our company need to be able to work at home for this very reason so they can have flexibility in providing care, going through testing, appointments, etc.

What Worry? I am ‘Trusting!’ (Part I)

I was thinking about you and the topic I wanted to share with each of you this week. Over the weekend, I had the honor and privilege of plugging into a very special training event. All of us come from a different culture, background, and environment that has personally shaped and molded us as individuals. Each of us has also encounter certain personal experiences that coupled with our genetically composed DNA has caused us to respond to certain stimuli in a variety of ways.

Every morning we wake up and decide how we are going to start our day. Throughout the day our minds are going with wheels turning. From the moment our feet hit the ground, we are thinking different thoughts.

Mind v. Business

Hey there friends! I was thinking about you and have something very special and dear to share with you about. What I am about to share with you is regarding one of my absolute favorite topics to talk about, ‘business’.

Now this message does not just apply to a business owner, this message can be for anyone with a career, a job in the home or out of the home, or even the roles you play as a parent or spouse; these too can be seen as ‘work’ related. Your mind and how you work are completely correlated and related. What does the mind have to do with running a successful business, company, or even family??? EVERYTHING! Have you heard the saying, ‘you are what you think?’ This is a very cliche question, but there is so much truth to it…think for a moment…

Where Is The Time Going??? (Part II)

Need a reality check of what too much work can do….

Too many hours at work and feeling that there is never enough hours leads to anxiety and stress. Stress leads to burn out. Burn out leads to nervous break downs, heart problems, strokes, heart attacks, self-loathing, resentment, rejection, bitterness, an unloving feeling towards self and others, perfectionism, idolatry, etc. Chemically speaking, your hormones can become improperly balanced. The chemicals that make you happy and calm such as Melatonin and Serotonin go down as Cortisol increases and causes negative emotions and reactions to things that would not otherwise normally bother nor effect you in such a way.
