I have read many business books in my years studying Advertising and Communications when I was in college. They were all the same. If you have trouble falling asleep, grab a business book.

I’m wrapping up the teen challenge with a blog post.  I have to say it was a challenge. I normally read two to three books per week for reviewing alone. With work – I work a full time job outside of the house, and the necessities of life, eating and sleeping to name a few, …

I have been writing and reviewing Tech products and books and I have had a wonderful time doing so. When Rebecca invited me to try my hand at writing for her blog I must say I was a little nervous. I spent weeks asking questions and I finally took the plunge. Your comments have been …
This is a business. This is your business.  You are the creator of your business. As professional writers we’ve all read this so many times, but part of your business and creating your business if the art of changing plans mid way. We might not like it, for example, when a book doesn’t seem to …
