The Value of Online Connections
29 January 2010

I think I’m a decent networker. I can go to an event and talk to every person in the room. I can leave with more than just a stack of business cards in hand — I can get a good idea of how I can help my new contacts and build a strong relationship. Read more…

What's Your Approach? Living the Holidays as a Woman and Entrepreneur
17 December 2009

In my family, we have a running joke: we tell a certain relative that any family events start an hour before they’re actually slated to begin. He’ll get caught up in work and arrive about an hour after he’s supposed to — our little scheme ensures that he’s actually on time. I’m a little worried that I’m creating my own variation on this relative’s ability to get lost in his work, though. Read more…

4 Bloggers and Their Business: Why This Year Rocked!

This year has brought great impact and change to many of the blogger community here (and it’s the launch year of Women Grow Business to boot!). Many bloggers have shared recently what they’re most grateful for in their businesses in 2009. I’m thankful for a wonderful team of consultants who challenge, stimulate and create; an amazing local community that has allowed me to develop and grow; an evolving interest in women’s health that frequently provides fodder for my blogging efforts.

Home Loans and Entrepreneurship:  the Real Work-Home Balance
12 October 2009

My husband and I are smack-dab in the middle of buying a house. From chasing down the right property to taking off time for the home inspection, the past several weeks have really driven home how differently the two of us handle the details—and I’m pretty sure it’s related to our work. … Read more…

For an Entrepreneur, It's Crucial to Reject New Ideas
10 September 2009

I’ve heard more than a few entrepreneurs claim that they got to where they are today by being open to new ideas — but I’m not so sure that’s the truth. The thing about most business owners is that they always have new ideas, and they have to write them down and forget about them. For an entrepreneur, it’s crucial to be able to say no to new ideas.

A Short-Handed Entrepreneur and Automating Professionalism
14 August 2009

I have a certain relative who makes a point of telling me that he thinks I’m making the wrong career choices every time I see him. When I started freelancing, he told me I’d never be able to get a job after spending so much time that I wouldn’t be able to account for on my resume. When I expanded my business, he told me it was too bad I’d never make as much as I could with a ‘real job. Read more…
