Conversations with Smart Women:  Kathleen Gage: Planted Based Eating and Power Up for Profits

Many of the women I interview on Nurturing Big Ideas Today, women I value as smart and talented, are friends I’ve known for years and years.

How to Get Out of Email HELL!

Are you a bit overwhelmed with emails - watching hundreds come dinging into your mailbox every morning, noon, and night?

If you are, you’re like hundreds of other small business women who feel overwhelmed with all the content being thrown at them, like rice at a wedding.

Smart Conversations with Smart Women:  Victoria Schade - Author Speaker Dog Trainer

I have to say this conversation was full of the kind of energy and learning we should each enjoy, every morning of our lives. I can tell you, re-watching the conversation brought smooth beams of warm sunlight into my office.

Part of the joy was in the topic of conversation - dogs. I could talk about dogs (and cats and gerbils and guinea pigs, etc) all day. Life is just better with pets.

No matter how much you want to say your pets are people, “My dog is my child.” Or, “Pets are family.” when push comes to shove, no one will consider them so. In the end, during or after a disaster, however major or minor, (mine is minor, foot surgery and back problems in the same week…well, this too shall pass and I will be all better soon), if you have not made a plan for your pets’ care, the universe will do it for you and I, personally, do not trust the Universe.

Smart Conversations on Nurturing Big Ideas Today: Wendy Toth

Wendy is so purely honest about where she started and how she came to the place she is at today, it will resonate with millions. I am sure of that! (millions will not see it unless YOU share, dear reader - so, do share, please)

Interestingly, while she talks about her career as a journalist and content director, it’s her story about Supermarket News that takes the day.
