Well … last month after attending my brother’s wedding my Crackberry was not behaving itself.  Battery would drain after 3 hours, even when not in use.  It was moving very slowly.  Stopped delivering messages, etc.  I had been toying with the idea of going to one of those unlimited plans for $50, but that meant I would lose the whole Blackberry package.  Tough times in the economy … so I used it as an excuse to ditch the Blackberry (cold turkey) and going to Boost Mobile.

Oh My Everloving God, People!  I have felt like someone has cut off my right arm for the past month.  No email delivery.  No user-friendly interface.  No mobile Facebook updates.  The phone I bought at Boost was a Motorola with a QWERTY keypad, but it SUCKS!  I cannot even tell you how much.

I know this makes me sound like such a snob, but seriously – I don’t know how people without a smart phone handle it.  I felt so isolated and out of sync with the world.

Anyway, since jumping back into the business, I kicked the stupid Motorola to the curb (anyone want a practically un-used free phone?) and got my new Blackberry 8900 Titanium today.  Agh … relief!  Come tomorrow, once it’s been charged and I setup my email accounts, etc. I will feel like an active participant in the world again.  It feels like FREEDOM.

Plus, since I purchased it through my business I will be receiving a commission each month on the bill I pay!!  How sweet is that?  If you’re interested in knowing more about having the opportunity for yourself just let me know and I will HOOK YOU UP!!

In other news, I’m exhausted despite my elation about the update in technology … so, this is yet another shortened post.  Next week will be better … there is much in the works right now and I’m coming up on a big breakthrough!  Woo hoo!


Is There A Ferris Wheel Around Here?

November 16, 2009

After sitting through an awesome training day yesterday, I can finally (after some months of worry and fretting and not-having-a-purpose) say that my business is about to hit the mother f&cking roof, People!!  And, obviously, I’m excited.

I’ve got a plan for the next 90 days that will push me to the absolute limits of my comfort zone, but I need it – and so does my future little family that is going to be here sooner than I know it.

So … tonight I am having the sensation of being on a rollercoaster – front row.  This year has been the agonizing, nerve wracking, and slow ascent to the top of the first big hill that the rest of the ride’s momentum is based.  It seemed like we were clicking and clacking and jerking and pulling forever, and I couldn’t even see where the top of the peak was.  I looked left, right, up and down but could never see further than the shoulder straps that held me in.  Nails gripped the lap restraint. 

But now, I have reached the peak.  I’m looking down a little and am starting to see life that exists beyond my little ride, but it’s only getting me more excited for the wild ride that I’m about to experience.

90 days … it’ll be work, but I have to make it happen. 


A New Day, A New Challenge … A New Opportunity

October 1, 2009

This is it.  Day One of the Life Lessons Network Transformation Challenge.  The official weigh-in and body fat calculation is to take place tomorrow afternoon, followed by boot camp, followed by a trip to Whole Foods for some grub.  Followed by a relaxing, restful slumber, followed by 89 more days of the same thing, which hopefully will sculpt this body into the supreme bride by May.

I met with the co-founder of Life Lessons Network this week.  She is an absolute inspiration, and lovely person.  I instantly felt like we had some things in common … business sense and optimism being two of them.  After talking with her I felt like I could accomplish all my major career goals by Christmas!  On the drive home I was giddy with excitement and gratitude that the opportunity to meet these people was presented to me.  Glad that she talked me into writing my essay even though I felt like I don’t have that much weight to lose. 

Upon returning to my home after our meeting I called my aunt while the dogs ran around outside in the cooler air.  We spent thirty minutes on the phone.  She began by telling me about some challenges she is facing right now, and I spent the next twenty minutes trying to fire her up to make some positive changes.  I was so glad when, at the end of the call, it seemed like the things I had said to her really sunk in.  I was so happy and excited and anxious for all the potential we ALL have in our lives.

So, in the spirit of celebrating our opportunities in this country & society, I am going to let the world know what I’m up to.  Maybe it will bring more business to me?  Maybe it will bring more business to those who read it here?  Maybe it will serve as a motivator or an idea generator for you.  Please let me know …
