  • Making a Choice

Making a Choice to Ensure Sanity

August 30th, 2022|Day in the Life of an Entrepreneur|

Most business owners that I know are always busy! Between running the business, fulfilling the work, networking, taking care of their family and themselves, there is no time left. I often find myself in the position of making a choice to do one thing over another.  For example, tonight, I had two different events that I could potentially attend but

  • Consistency

Consistency

August 29th, 2022|Day in the Life of an Entrepreneur|

One of the critical items that is most important as a business owner is consistency. What does this mean? Create a routine and systems so you optimize what you do and how you do it.  Personal routine: For me this is not only my health but my schedule at work I walk daily during the week before I get ready

  • celebrate the weekend

Celebrate the Weekend

August 28th, 2022|Day in the Life of an Entrepreneur|

It’s Sunday night and a time to get ready for the new week but also a time to celebrate the weekend that you’ve had. Were you able to relax? Did you have items you wanted to accomplish? Did you spend time with friends and family?  I immensely enjoyed this weekend more than some because I didn’t have anything scheduled. Don’t

  • Perseverance

Perseverance

August 27th, 2022|Day in the Life of an Entrepreneur|

The weekend is often the hardest time to stay focused on Phase Two of the Live Hard program. Perseverance is essential. I just finished Day 13 tonight. Because I have less scheduled on the weekends, I must be more intentional about planning everything out. It sounds crazy doesn’t it? I have more time but have a harder time?  Phase Two

  • National Dog Day

National Dog Day

August 26th, 2022|Day in the Life of an Entrepreneur|

Today, August 26, 2022, is National Dog Day. What do dogs have to do with business? Nothing and everything. Dogs offer us unconditional love, which is an amazing gift especially when stressed. Two of our four dogs come to our office with me daily. They are even on my BatCat Media Group website as part of the team.  Owning a

  • building step by step

Building Step by Step

August 25th, 2022|Day in the Life of an Entrepreneur|

Building step by step! Don't we all wish it was that easy. As a building goes up step by step so does a business. I was walking by this huge construction project in Delray Beach early this morning. I thought to myself that this project is taking forever, but it’s really not. The building pictured here is the 4th building

  • create your best day

Create Your Best Day!

August 24th, 2022|Day in the Life of an Entrepreneur|

Create your best day! I find that my days go much smoother when I don’t have appointments first thing in the morning, which is often not the case. Today I arrived at the office a little after 9:00am on a mission to get a lot accomplished before the filming of my podcast at 5:00pm.  My goal? Finish my day by

  • fitting it all in

Fitting It All In

August 23rd, 2022|Day in the Life of an Entrepreneur|

As a business owner, I’m always in a balancing act of fitting it all in. It’s a balancing act between professional and personal needs. Today, I had an early morning networking event at 8am on Zoom and then I needed to go vote in our primary in Florida before heading to the office. After a full day working, I filmed

  • hit the ground running

Hit the Ground Running!

August 22nd, 2022|Day in the Life of an Entrepreneur|

It’s Monday and I hit the ground running! I was very intentional actually starting last night. I made sure to go to bed so I could get close to six hours of sleep. I got up at my normal time of 4:30am and completed my morning routine on time. What didn’t get accomplished over the weekend? Food prep for the

  • Finish Strong

It’s Friday! Finish Strong!

August 19th, 2022|Day in the Life of an Entrepreneur|

It’s Friday! A time when most of us are tired and ready for the weekend to begin. I am certainly no exception. As a business owner, it’s important to not only start but finish strong. Tie up loose ends, determine what didn’t get done, complete any projects that need completing. You know the drill.  Today, I got up 30 minutes

  • Collaboration vs Competition

Collaboration vs Competition

August 18th, 2022|Day in the Life of an Entrepreneur|

Collaboration vs competition - drastically different views of the same world. We had a meeting today with an account representative from a Digital Advertising Agency. His company offers services that we don’t offer and we offer some services that his company doesn’t offer. When you start a new business, sometimes the tendency is to expand your services quickly to offer

  • Think critically

To Think Critically Is So Important

August 16th, 2022|Day in the Life of an Entrepreneur|

I was reminded today that each of us needs to think critically. I was listening to Glenn Lundy's GM3X (formerly the #riseandgrind show) early this morning and one part of the message was to think critically. Instead of simply discounting that someone thinks differently than you or practices a different religion, learn about the practice for yourself instead of relying

Learning is Essential in Owning a Business

August 13th, 2022|Day in the Life of an Entrepreneur|

It’s Saturday! A day of rest, recharging, cleaning, laundry and catching up. Sometimes Saturdays are perfect opportunities to learn! Learning is essential in owning a business. Today, Derral Eves, a YouTube expert, went live with Matt from Matt’s Off-Road Recovery. Eves, on his channel, gives expert advice how to grow your YouTube channel.  Having just started my YouTube Channel, Dream

Create My Best Self

August 11th, 2022|Day in the Life of an Entrepreneur|

It occurs to me that I am on a journey to create my best self. Some days I definitely feel that I move more towards that goal than others. In the last week, I’ve felt a bit distracted and tired the last week but I still recognize that I get more done than most people in a given day or

  • Take Responsibility

Be Proactive and Take Responsibility

August 10th, 2022|Day in the Life of an Entrepreneur|

Be proactive and take responsibility in your health, business and happiness. I filmed my next episode of the Dream Plan Start Grow show with Dr. Hepsharat Amadi a Holistic Doctor in Broward County. She works with patients who “who accept responsibility for their own health and work with her as a team.” She practices working with people to keep them
