So you want to start a business or a blog….

  1. Get your priorities in order before you embark on any new adventure. My priorities include time alone with God, husband, children, career/work and then friends.
  2. Start dreaming
  3. Creativity takes courage – so embrace it and run with it
  4. Get off your couch and start doing what you love today
  5. Never let a disability hold you back from your dream
  6. You are never to old to start
  7. You are never to young to start
  8. It’s takes time – Be patient ( I’ve spent hundreds of hours researching and creating this blog during my free time or when my family is sleeping)
  9. It takes effort, commitment and energy
  10. There will always be people jealous of you – Just learn to deal with it and move on
  11. There will always be people who admire you and look up to you – Spend time with them and thank them for their encouragement to you
  12. Quit talking about it and just do it!
  13. Encourage someone else to follow their dream. Help them see what they may not see or believe in themselves.
  14. Light a candle each day and ask God to light a fire within you for the people He has placed in your path for the day – Starting with your family.

  28. Always have your camera ready to capture what inspires you (flowers, people, clothes, shoes, houses, paint colors and so on)
  29. Keep a sketchbook or notebook handy at all times, so you can jot down what inspires you.
