Welcome back to the Freedom 101 series! Today we are going to talk about one of the things most people struggle with: email management. According to Harvard Business Review, an average professional spends 28% of workday reading and answering emails. That is equivalent to 2.6 hours per day!! Whaaattt???!! When we own a […]
I remember when I was dying to work from home. When I still had my full-time corporate job, I regularly said to myself that I would do anything and everything to be able to work from my couch, in my PJs, with Gilmore Girls playing in the background. (Insert PRAISE HANDS right here!!) My first […]
A few months ago, Mitch and I took a two-week-long vacation. During our trip, God kept revealing one thing to me over and over again: it’s time to let go and trust me! I didn’t take this very seriously until I got back home and started to ask God what He wanted me to […]
Today we are talking about a topic that a lot of entrepreneurs struggle with: talking about our business with confidence. As entrepreneurs, having conversations about our business, especially with our friends and family, is not necessarily the easiest thing in the world. I don’t know about you, but I usually stay away from talking […]
Outsourcing can seem overwhelming. Perhaps you are still debating whether or not it is time to outsource for your business as you’ve always wanted to, but you continue to have second thoughts. I get it. Hiring the right person is a process that not only involves evaluating the qualities of your candidates but also determining […]
What a crazy season it’s been! Can you believe we’re already halfway through the year? I knew 2019 would be a year of breakthroughs and changes, but it’s funny how I thought it’d be a long, slow process. Boy, was I wrong! After launching my new brand in March, I was fully booked for a […]
At the beginning of 2019, I shared why I chose the word ‘faithfulness’ to be my word of the year. As corny as it may sound, I want 2019 to be a year of God that is centred to His will. This has involved my dreamed of having a business that speaks God’s truth and holds values of His Kingdom. However, at the beginning of the year my vision still felt a little blurry and out of place, even though I had some idea for what I wanted my brand to look like. I then had the idea of hiring a designer to do a complete rebrand for my business, and that’s when Brianne of Design by Brianne came into the picture.
Every January, my church kicks off the new year with a week of prayer and fasting. This year, my husband and I decided to fast from entertainment (including music, books, TV, podcasts, etc.) and social media.
It was a pretty amazing week for us. Personally, it made me realize that my day-to-day life is full of distractions, worldly voices, and things that are not feeding my soul, but instead keeping me away from getting closer to God and being sensitive to His voice.
Last night I went out for dinner with a few of my girlfriends. We had such a wonderful time. The four of us have committed to bi-weekly Friday dinners for a little bit more than a year now. These nights are always full of delicious food, meaningful conversations, and prayers. I love that we gather as a group of close friends to talk and share our hearts. I felt particularly grateful after our dinner last night, and I couldn’t help but want to express my gratitude for these ladies.
