Nobody Needs What You’re Selling (And Why That’s A Good Thing)

I forgot how much I **love** fall until this past weekend.

Josh and I spent some unplugged time in the woods. The temperature dropped just enough to light a fire and bust out some chunky sweaters, but not enough to retire my flip-flops for the season.

How To Get Customers: Local Business Marketing

I just got back to LA from speaking at the Glazer-Kennedy women’s business conference in San Antonio, Texas. I’m proud to say I was blessed with a standing ovation for my presentation.
