money thoughts

It's been an interesting year for me, lots of changes, lots of learning and lots of soul searching. Maybe some call this mid-life crisis but I'm not really sure what "crisis" this would be. I prefer to think of it as mid-life discovery. It seems that when we're in our early years, we're struggling to do what we are either taught is the right way to live our life or we try to keep up with our own perceptions of how we should live our life. Sometimes it's what works for us and sometimes it's not what works with us. I firmly believe that the only way anything works in your life is if you are true to yourself. This also has it's affects with money. Money has always been [...]

positive moves to the beach

One of the reasons I began my business was the wish to be able to move to any location I wanted to and my business would follow. With eJenn Solutions - that's been something I've been able to accomplish! Beyond that wish to live any place I choose, I have an inner craving for the beach. Some people crave snow capped mountains, others the wonderful scents and sounds of the woods .... for me, it's the beach. So to keep myself on track and to feed that inner craving - I try to spend every Sunday I can at the beach. It's about a 50 min. drive for me and listening to my favorite music on the way out to the beach feeds my inner soul and creativity too! (Thank [...]

We are all busy, we all have things to do, we all have have our daily agendas. We rush, we tunnel vision forward to get our goals done and then at the end of the day we look in the mirror and find .... we gained weight... We may have noticed the subtle changes in how our clothes don't fit, but if we're not careful, it can creep up and in an instant you realize .... What the hell happened?! With my business, I'm very sedentary, I work at a desk all day long, I'm on a computer, on the phone ... it's the way it is. I used to work in a corporate world and even then - you walk from the parking log to your office, you walk [...]

how to make videos on a budget

I love working with people and getting them to consider different things for their social media programs. Often times when clients are creating their own content - we will help them come up with ways to maximize their best communication skills online. Example of this ... some people are better speakers than writers and vice versa ... some people are better writers than speakers. I myself fall into the last category ... writing is my comfort zone - video is not my comfort zone. Both ways can work for online content. For those of you who want to dabble and start to do your own YouTube videos for your business I've put together my list of "needs" for that. Your Smartphone: Yep ... you read that right - just your [...]

reading your way to happiness

I don't know about you ... but I LOVE to read. I have a problem finding time to set aside to read however. Well okay, time is an issue but so is the fact that reading inevitably puts me to sleep. I don't know what it is ... the left / right eye movement? The brain dead factor since I'm usually reading at night or maybe it's the warm green tea I'm usually sipping. Either way ... reading is usually sleepy time for me. Since I'm always looking at ways to be more efficient and I'm always multi-tasking, I decided to give Audible.com (affiliate link) a try. Audible is basically a books on tape type of format. Except it's all digital and all done through the power of Amazon. My [...]

best orlando hair stylist Jenn Lenos

Florida has been full of new experiences for me since I moved here. The new types of birds, the warnings about not getting too close to lake edges, alligators, bugs .... oh, the bugs and the list goes on. One of the hardest things to get used to is what the Florida humidity does to your hair! It was something I complained about when I first moved here on vine in fact! You can watch the short video here: Vine Florida Hair My hair has never been curlier than it has here in Florida! One of the fantastic people I met since moving here to Orlando was a great hair stylist Jenn Lenos at Vinnacia Hair Goddess. I figured anyone that calls themselves a Hair Goddess HAS to know a [...]

20 new things go to a new park

Part of my #20NewThings project / challenge was to try and get me to go different places and try different things. As humans, we get stuck in our habits very easily ... in fact, there is a great article by Mona D. Fishbane, PhD titled "Why Change Is So Hard: The Power Of Habit In The Human Brain" that is worth the read on this subject. Without knowing it ... this whole #20NewThings project of mine is actually a great way to encourage and accept change in my life. It's apparently science people ... and it's called Neuroplasticity. So while you read up on those articles ... you may find like I did that this little 20 new things is a great idea. It's also not that hard to do [...]

20 new things - try new food

As part of the 20 New Things Project I created for myself - I decided that trying new foods should be on this list. Not just trying new foods - but actively going out of my way to pick up something strange at the store that I had no idea what to do with. Beyond reading what the grocery store sign said ... I had no clue what I was going to do with the items I bought above. Those 2 new items: Dragon Fruit and Rambutan (or as I learned Lychee) I took these things home and thought ... now what? Okay not really - I actually put out on Facebook a photo of the fruit and asked ... "What do I do with these?" and sure enough my [...]
