Working women

Middle age working women want more

These women dream of creating something more for their livelihood as well as their lives. Today I started a series over on my FB Page, I want to write stories about what I see as the plight of the middle-aged woman.  The one who slaves away for someone else while dreaming of something more for herself.  Plight may be a strong word as it is not all bad news!

For as long as I can recall Sunday has been a challenge for me. As a kid growing up in an unstable environment, few friends, bullied at school during the week I struggled with Sundays.  I struggled with the lack of family time as I perceived it should have been or I thought others lived. I was fearful of returning to school on Mondays, back to the bullies and feeling dumb and outa place.

Organizational misfit? Yes, it can be people as well as tools

Tracking? Keep it Simple

The other day I read this really great blog about over organizing yourself and how this can hinder your productivity. It got me thinking about my habits and how they can sometimes get in the way of actually working in my business.
