• How to Take Constructive Feedback to Improve Your Bottom Line

    Every entrepreneur is going to be forced to listen to constructive feedback. As much as we all like to believe that we know the proper ways to run a business, the reality is that it takes a lot of work. There’s marketing, payroll, networking, communication, and so many other factors that we as business owners have to learn in order to run an effective and profitable company.

Not everyone is going to like your photography style, your writing tone, or even the way you communicate. Whatever your niche is, the one thing you… Read More

I had public speaking anxiety like you wouldn’t believe (or maybe you would because 25% of people experience it). Unfortunately, if you’re a solopreneur then this is something you’re going to have to get over— or at least live with. I understand the struggle and courage it takes to get up and talk to a room full of people, so I decided to share my own public speaking tips… Read More

    You may not know this, but what you have on your carry-on packing list is vital.

I have done my own fair share of traveling though, so I decided to share the wealth— of knowledge, that is!
