3 Things You NEED Before Hiring a Web Designer

If you’re a business owner or really anyone looking to build a kickass, modern, clean and professional website - you know that it’s a lot easier thinking about getting it done than it is actually getting it done. You may have gone in and had a go at DIY-ing the site yourself, only to find out exactly three nanoseconds in that what you had in mind might be a tad bit more difficult than you thought.

How to Achieve Less "Busy-ness" and More Progress

I'll be the first to admit that seeming that we are busy all the time makes us feel like we're being more productive when we actually may not be doing much. I started to realize back when I was in university and later on into real-adulthood how common it was for people around me to be almost bragging about how much they had to do and how stressed out they were and how there just isn't enough time in the day.

A Real-Talk Letter to My Just-Starting-Out-in-Business Self

When we're starting out on a new entrepreneurial pursuit, I think the biggest reality check to arm ourselves with in the beginning is the realization that everything takes time. And lots of it. While, yes, it can be tempting to glamorize our situations and make ourselves believe that WE'RE DIFFERENT WE'RE THE EXCEPTIONS, the large majority of the time, we're going to be fighting the good fight juuuust like the rest of the hard working self-starters who came before us.

My Instagram Batching Secret to Save Time (and Frustration)

When it comes to outside tools and third-party applications, I can honestly say that I'm not a fan. I strongly dislike over-complicating things, and while a lot of these tools can be helpful and make my life easier as they claim to do, I personally see them as being a bit annoying and as just another password and username to keep track of. Anybody with me? Well, if you are - I assume you'll continue reading. Hopefully.

Less Busy-ness, More Business: 5 Steps to More Meaningful Productivity

I'll be the first to admit that seeming like we're busy all the time makes us feel like we're being more productive when we actually may not be doing much. I started to realize back when I was in university how common it was for people around me to brag (yes, brag) about how much they had to do and how stressed they were and how there just isn't enough time in the day, yada yada yada.But then when I really started to observe some of these same people, I realized they really weren't doing much of anything because they weren't being productive.

Minding Your Own Business: Don't Get Caught Up in Comparisons

One thing I really noticed during the trip and especially out at one restaurant in particular, was how the locals really just mind their own business. You walk into a place, people take a look at you, and then they go back to whatever it is they're doing. And with all of this, I really thought about how it applies to conducting business online, where it's SO easy to head over to our competitors' websites and poke around on what's going on in there. What new business opportunities they might have coming to them (and subsequently focusing on what's not coming to us), what they're talking about in their blog posts (and subsequently remembering that it's been a while since we were in the blogging groove, ourselves).

How to Get Over 'Analysis Paralysis' and Get to Work

Let's be real. The most difficult part of starting something can be just sitting down and STARTING IT. That, paired with the seemingly endless options and choices around every corner vying for our attention, can make it doubly difficult. That’s why I’m here blogging today about the dangers of succumbing to paralysis by analysis in favor of making decision after decision and then pivoting or altering your course along the way. Here are my main thoughts about getting over analysis paralysis and getting to work. You'll thank yourself for it later on!
