Nothing happens in life until you decide. You won’t lose weight until you tire of going into the dressing room and yelling out to your girlfriend to bring you a dress in the next size up. You won’t get control of your finances until you tire of MasterCard,Visa & American Express getting their cut of your coins each month or else. But more importantly you will not take control of your destiny until you tire of putting it in someone else’s hands.
In life we all experience a series of what I call “Clicks”.

As many entrepreneurs can attest, sometimes your business can take over your whole world. One of the biggest goals for my own business is planning S.H.E. Summit Week — a week of women-led events culminating in a transformational leadership and lifestyle conference for women on June 14 and 15.
In February, I woke in the middle of the night panicking about S.H.E. Summit for three consecutive weeks.
In April, my husband had an intervention with me because I was talking about S.H.E. Summit morning, noon and night. I talked about it over dinner with friends, during chats with local shopkeepers and even with our mail woman. I was out of control and he was losing his mind.

From the time I was a little girl I have been groomed for something. My mother gave me solid morals and work ethic. To this day I mimic her strength, calm under pressure, and dogged determination. My sister gave me a single piece of advice that changed my life and that was “Just Follow Through.” But my grandmother, who recently made her transition, taught me etiquette. The basic things. Little girls should be seen and not heard. How to make a bed, hotel style. How to set a table. And then, there’s her signature piece that serves me to this day, “How to Write a Thank You Note.” My grandmother believed that sending a handwritten thank you was an absolute must. It is classy, thoughtful and above all, it shows that you know “how to do.”
Here are several ways to send meaningful thank you notes in a modern world.

I’ve heard that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. When I started on my journey as an entrepreneur 4 years ago I didn’t have an inkling as to what I was in for. I had an idea, an uber fabulous name, She’s Got Papers, cash to begin, the support of my family, stacks of research that I printed from various websites and a pint of Prailines n’ Cream from Baskin & Robbins just in case things got sticky. My plan was simple. I was going to design stationery, market it to women via my website and it was going to sell. Read more…
