Fall-ish in Staying Connected

Yesterday my daughter and I went to see some friends during the day, so she didn’t have a regular naptime. She just slept for the 30-minute commute. That means that today is the third time I’m tr...

Marriage in Staying Connected

Sometimes my husband makes me so angry that I delete him from my vision of the future. I don’t replace him with anyone. I think it’s just that I cannot imagine how things will be if they continue...


I’m writing this entry while listening to my kid cry and hyperventilate through the baby monitor. Yesterday, for the first time that I can remember, instead of delaying the nap for as long as pos...

Go Time in Staying Connected

This morning I had a realization. I have always had passion and at least enough intelligence to do something with it, and I have always had financial support from my parents. Within the next year...


This chapter was all about caring, genuinely and personally, about everybody involved in your business, including (in my case) associates, clients, insurance companies, networking partners, etc. ...


Before I write about this chapter, I just wanted to mention briefly that I am trying to manage the stress I wrote about in my last entry. There are three things that happened that relieved my str...


Today I went over our upcoming expenses, of which there are A LOT. We owe our property taxes in a couple of weeks ($2,000, in case you were wondering, and another $2,000 in February). In additi...


There were a few takeaways from chapter 2. One of the ideas I highlighted was that it is important to have employees who contribute to your companies soul. I imagine myself someday asking my Ass...

Not Feeling It in Staying Connected

Let’s see. Where to begin? Well, last night I went out to dinner with a colleague for the first time since the pandemic happened. I think I mentioned it, but I’ve been really itching for some co...

Steps to Success in Staying Connected

I’ve really been taking the last several weeks as an opportunity to build my ideal schedule. I’ve also been trying to keep track of how I’m building it so that, hopefully, sometime in the future,...


Even though most things seem to be open again, it still feels like I’m really trapped at home. And not just that, but I haven’t seen anybody other than my husband, daughter, and in-laws in a real...

Chore Day in Staying Connected

Let’s see. Well, today was “chore day,” and I think it went really well. My husband had a mini tantrum at first, but once we got through that we got a lot of really great cleaning done. I put awa...


The first chapter of this book was more about trusting and standing by your own vision, above and beyond everything else (including a big paycheck). There was a lot of discussion around the press...


I just finished the introduction of my Small Giants book and I feel super fucking inspired. The first thing that jumped out to me was the idea that great companies must have a soul. The soul of ...


I want to write right now, even though I don’t have much to say. I took my daughter with me today to go and have my boss sign off on my hours, so tomorrow I can submit them for approval. That’s ...


Yesterday was date night and it was fucking fantastic. Around 4:15pm my daughter and I went into her bedroom with my case of makeup, and I put on eye shadow, eye liner, mascara, blush, bronzer, ...

Growing in Staying Connected

Today has been a pretty good day so far. We all woke up at the same time, loaded ourselves into the car, and went down to the beach for our morning walk/jog. This time I jogged the entire second...

The Plan in Staying Connected

Saturday in Staying Connected

It’s another relaxing day in our household. We woke up and went to the farmer’s market. We decided that blackberries, spinach, cherry tomatoes, and avocados are all better at the grocery store f...

Reading in Staying Connected

I don’t have much to report this morning. Today my biggest goal is to get my forms prepared to submit for approval. I’ve been procrastinating on this because forms give me significant anxiety. I...


Through recent therapy and reflection, I’ve been able to identify my current challenges with each of my parents, how they are impacting my life outside of those relationships, and what I want for...


This morning I just want to write a quick entry about how grateful I feel. I am grateful for my body. Even with the skin problems and the diastasis recti, it really does a lot for me. I’m so gra...

Day in the Life in Staying Connected

Today has been a “meh” of a day so far. I stayed up way too late last night, and then my husband agreed to get up with the baby, but then he woke me up 30 minutes later because he had to poop. So...


Good afternoon! I’m currently in the middle of a pretty relaxing day. This morning I took my daughter on a power walk at the beach, came home and made breakfast, started a load of sheets and tow...


The farmer’s market this morning was a success! We stopped at five different stands for various things. At the first stand, we got broccoli, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, green beans, cucumber,...
