Procrastination is a lot like an avalanche, the longer it goes, the bigger it grows. My uncanny ability to procrastinate reached almost infamous proportions when I was in school. I was […]

Quick and Easy Meals

Writing full time has been eating away (pun intended) at my second love of cooking. There just isn’t time to prepare the menus and meals that I have done in the past. Instead of giving up on the cooking altogether, I’m learning how to make some of those thirty minute meals (and I mean prep […]

Who is Effecting You?

Make Money Without a Job

The Dr. Phil show recently had a couple on that didn’t have “jobs.” Dr. Phil was insistent that in order for people to live productive lives (particularly when children are involved) they have to have a real (i.e. regular) pay check. I don’t regularly watch Dr. Phil, but the subject caught my attention. I walked […]
