“Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”  ― Shel Silverstein

How do you balance the mustn’ts, the don’ts, the shouldn’ts and the impossibles with the must’s, the do’s, the should’s and the possibles?

We all face doubts and doubters, no thank you’s and outright rejection. That’s just a part of life, and part of running a business. For me, it’s usually my inner voice warning me about what I can’t, shouldn’t or mustn’t do that speaks the loudest. Oh how I’d love to quiet my inner naysayer…

I have always been shy. Like clinically shy. Like can barely muster up enough voice to order a pizza shy. The fact that I interact with the outside world in a professional capacity is proof that “ANYTHING can happen, child. ANYTHING can be.”

If you work from home, Everyday is Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day!

One of the things I love most about my business is that I don’t have to commute to do my job. Not only that, but with the products I sell, I get to help others do the same thing.

By working from home instead of commuting to a job center we:

  • Save gas
  • Save wear and tear on our cars
  • Consume less packaging for meals – no need to pack a lunch or eat out
  • Use a lower energy consumption rate than large office centers
  • Spend and consume less on wardrobe (no, I don’t always work in my PJ’s, but I think I might own one power suit compared to the corporate wardrobe I used to have:)

So bravo fellow work at home, telecommuting, environmentally green champions!

And Happy Earth Day to All!
