A Great Opportunity for Busy Moms

I am so excited about the opportunity to connect with Audrey Cupo. She is a professional organizer who specializes in residential organizing. She focuses her business on helping busy moms and women entrepreneurs learn how to get and stay organized.

She’s been busy not only writing newsletters, blogs and articles on the subject of getting organized, she has produced a line of products called U Can Do It which were specially created to help busy moms.

Now, she has put together an exciting, new coaching program for busy moms called "Living A More Organized Life".

With this program, you will learn how to follow a proven step-by-step method to tackle and accomplish any project, be prepared for every special event, plan vacations and family time, make back to school a breeze, and learn how to relax and enjoy the holiday season by having step-by-step ways to do gift-giving, decorating, large family dinners/parties and overnight guests.

I will be holding a free tele-conference on Wednesday, January 6, 2010 at 7:30 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time), where I will introduce Audrey to those of you who sign up and give you the opportunity to meet her. You will love what she has to offer! This information can be helpful to your friends so let them know about it too.

Don’t be one of those busy moms who misses out on the opportunity to learn how to live a more organized life! Sign up today at so you can participate in this free tele-conference.

December - A Time for Reflection

One of the things I look to do at the end of each year is review what the year has been about and see if I can find what I have learned. Usually there are many lessons, the question is have I learned anything. I have been particularly reflective this year. Then I looked at my planning calendar which I used to plan out my business year and saw the theme which said: "Change: Embrace change and recognize that life is in constant motion. When boundaries are seen as opportunities, the world becomes a limitless place." For the record, no one was cited for that quote on my calendar.

I suddenly realized that this year my theme has been Embrace Change. My office moved, my son was diagnosed with major food allergies which required a whole new way of eating, we decided to homeschool our boys and my business focus is in transition to accommodate our new lifestyle. I have to admit there have been times during this year where I have felt paralyzed by the enormity of the changes. Any one change is enough to add stress, yet I had many major changes.

So what have I learned, hmm. I have learned
  • it is okay to grieve what was,
  • it is okay feel afraid,
  • it is okay to ask for help,
  • it is okay to fall apart for a little while,
  • it is okay to take your time to heal,
  • it is okay to take your time to work through the changes, and
  • I don't have to have all the answers today. I make one decision at a time and then I look for the next right thing to do.

It has been an interesting journey, and one I could not have done without the help of my family, friends, coaches, business associates and most of all my God who has given me strength and a peace that surpasses all understanding during a time when I needed some peace. Here is a great quote that helps keep me on track when change hits me in the face. I hope it encourages you.

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.

You Can Feel It In The Air

I woke up this morning to the reality that it is December 1st! This is not bad news, just a fact. I felt it in the air that is brisk and filled with energy. I felt as my boys are starting to catch the excitement of the media that Christmas is around the corner. There is something different about this year though, we are homeschooling.

I think what I like best about that is the flexibility of our schedule. We work hard but on our terms. We are getting ready to study the Westward Bound expansion which includes the Alamo and the Gold Rush. Tom and David cannot wait. There are lots of exciting stories to read and facts to learn. We are also preparing for the holidays which includes a new chapter, making our own Christmas presents. We fill our days with reading, playing and sharing.

I think my favorite gift this year is the opportunity to work my boys. I love them, and they really love being homeschooled. I hope your holidays are a blessed as mine. May your days be filled with peace and may you never forget the reason for the season.
