You want to see sales soar and all will be blissful. What is wrong
when sales do not magically adorn the Profit & Loss? Does the enchanted
forest begin to appear frightening? It should not be scary at all, but caution should be sensible enough to plan ahead with a well-exercised mind. Try to keep the horse in front of the cart.
Is it enough to create product flyers, brochures and fancy labels, a
most fascinating website? Or maybe one is thinking, we will tweet, use fb and other social media to bring customers to buy your product! It might not work as simple as following a yellow brick road to a kingdom of rapid, consistent, and high value sales.
Take a step back for just a bit. Breathe a little.

How many times do you hear a man say "I just don't understand women".
Or "What do women want?" Well, there are times when we simply do not
know how to navigate that simple question. It can be said, that women also
wonder what men want? To be sure, human nature is amazing and complex.
Keep Calm and Addoway
For those interested in starting up an online business, it can be the most
daunting task to define “What do I want?”, be it man or woman.
A stumbling block in being successful in such a venture, can be as simple as not knowing what you want. You have a fuzzy and vague idea of what you want, and to top it off, do not know how to get there. To the destination, one must have a goal.
Hopefully you came here because you are ready to take the next step into ... Read More
Being a local, native of Massachusetts, I've seen many a marathon race. Back in the old days, itwas not run for money, nor did the runners have sponsors. I even saw the legendaryJohnny Kelly run back in the day.

Just seconds after the first explosion rocked the area near the finish line, there was a
second blast a few blocks away on Boylston Street.
For those fortunate to be on the route, it was familytradition to watch together, hand out oranges and perhaps water, and then havea family cookout together after race. Many years of happy family celebrations and good times surrounding this day. Now, I work on Patriot's Day, but the place of employmentis also on the route. This year, we watched from the third floor of an historic buildingas the thousands of athletes came came down... Read More
Today, we have a new Pope. Vaya con Dios (means Go with God or Godspeed)
Pope Francis, not Pope Francis I as many thought.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio chose the name of Francis, one of the patron saints of Italy.
(St. Francis of Assisi)
May we bless the workings of the Holy Spirit to help guide us and direct us and Pope Francis.
I didn't know anything about this man until today. It will be inspiring to learn from him for the Easter season and the course of his papacy.
What impresses me at first glance is that he was still using public transporation. Wow! A very humble man, it seems he paid his hotel bill himself this morning as he ventured out and then visited the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore.

It was meant to be a monthly series, if not weekly, but it did not happen because of
other pursuits, life and priorities.
Here is Episode 2 which encapsulates a year of events. In Episode One, we thought
Millie would find a new job which was to occur in Episode 3. In the meantime, we need to see Part Two before we find that out.
This will only appeal to the crafters, but I was making some the other day. Yes, less than a month after Christmas I was thinking about May Baskets.
All you need are styrofoam cups, pipe cleaners, crepe paper and white glue.
I used to make these with my Mom and was trying to remember the designs we made. It didn't take but a few minutes to remember a few of those designs.
There's a Youtube video if it helps to understand the tutorial. Or you can view the How-to directions here: Besides making May Baskets, you can make these for any party to hold candies and homemade goodies.
Since this was going to be a four-hour trip, there was a host of snacks carefully packed. Never one to be unprepared, I had an assortment of melon, prosciutto, rolled up polish ham, roast beef, crackers, cheddar cheese, goat cheese, crusty bread and blue cheese. I forgot the blueberries and apple slices at home. I envisioned setting the snacks on the table. Oops, there was no table. Hmm…
As I prepared to sit down across the aisle from my family, the woman who would be next to me started telling a family with kids that this was in no uncertain terms, a QUIET CAR. Yikes. From that point on, I was a... Read More
