180 in Staying Connected

Me last week: I don’t know what it is, but I just don’t feel good. I think it might have to do with the change in the weather. I’m glad it’s not hot, but it very suddenly got chilly and overcast,...


Well, it’s been quite a day. First I woke up and decided to take a pregnancy test. One of my friends on Prosebox said my constipation, acid reflux, and fatigue could be pregnancy symptoms. I had...

Mood: Depleted in Staying Connected

Today has been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. Last night was supposed to be whiskey night, but I was exhausted. After the kid went to bed, my husband and I watched one episode of The Boys ...

Growth Mindset in Staying Connected

I have two and a half hours until I see my first client. It should be a pretty relaxing day for me, which I really need. It just seems like I’ve been coming up a lot of mental obstacles lately. ...

Checked Out in Staying Connected

I think it’s finally fall in California. Please GOD let it be fall. I feel so checked out of life and ready for the holidays. This weekend I’m going to put away my Halloween decorations and bust...


People “own” a part of the company, are personally invested People are included, asked about their thoughts, etc. Hire people who are motivated by more than money (share business values) The wor...

Uphill Battle in Staying Connected

My days have been feeling really long and slow. The mornings start off great. I love waking up early (when I can), reading, jogging, eating a family-style breakfast, and taking a shower. My daug...

November in Staying Connected

Let’s see. So, Halloween was good. I thought my daughter’s Boo costume was on point. It made me very happy. My birthday was very special. We woke up early and my husband said our first stop was ...

Elephants in Staying Connected

I found out recently that my in-laws plan on hosting a Thanksgiving celebration for a total of 19 people from 11 different households. Our options of course would be to go, or to miss it and spen...


Hello, and welcome to my delayed reaction to losing my job six weeks ago. The stress and frustration of it all is just starting to set in. Deep in my mind, thoughts of inadequacy are subtly swar...


You know you have a problem when you use Neosporin to treat the “acne” (read: the hole in your face where a cystic acne should be). It would be a problem no matter when, but its especially a prob...


My birthday. My husband said I need to wake up early, and he will tell me the rest on the day. I’m going to buy myself workout clothes and work clothes at COSTCO. Always exciting. I’m hop...


It seems like no matter how hard I try, I will never be able to stop picking my skin. It seems like I could be good for two weeks straight, and all it takes is 1 minute to fuck it all up. Not t...

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...

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...
