Both require determination, passion and the ability to communicate effectively.
We work hard. We earn money. We buy stuff.
Then, that stuff requires repair, maintenance and software updates. Before you know it, your stuff is out of style. You’re on version 3 when the rest of the world is on version 7.
We work harder. We earn more money. We buy more stuff.
Are we in control of our things or are our things in control of us?
According to the American Cancer Society, more than 1 million people in the United States get cancer each year. Globally, that number rises to around 15 million people.
As sad as those statistics are, they are just that … only statistics. Until cancer effects you, your family or someone close to you, you don’t realize the seriousness of the disease. At least that was the case with me.
Hello Nicole. I’m not really dead.
Sorry about that spooky title.
But if I do die unexpectedly, I want you to give you and the kids a clear path to feel safe and well taken care of …
Hence why I’m writing this letter to you today …
Children … They provide us with a sense of pride that is unmatched.
Raising kids truly feels like the reason we’re placed on this earth. We learn from them, we grow with them and the bond that is formed is a blessing from God.
Children are also QUITE annoying, sticky and interrupt you constantly.
I’m a pretty solid sleeper. In fact, I come from a long family line of “immediate sleepers”. We lay down on the pillow and, in less than 10 seconds, we’re fast asleep. Now … leaping tall buildings or flying would be cool, but I’ll settle for falling asleep quickly as my super power.
Staying asleep is another story.
Investing for retirement … We all know how important it is. But where do we start?!
How much money do we need? Do we work with a broker? How do we make sure we’re investing correctly?
Last month, work was insane.
I traveled out of town nearly every week. And when I was in the office, I worked some decently late hours.
It was a stressful time for both me and my family.
Thankfully, October is already looking to be a better month so I’ll just chalk it up to the insanity of meeting my year-end sales goals.
I’m happy to say that frantic September is not the norm at my job. My employer challenges me and asks a lot of me, but also gives me the freedom to enjoy other parts of my life.
