Under Pressure

I love sandstone.  I love everything about it - the easily observed layers of differently colored sediment, how it cements together after years and years of patient compression to form a solid, beautiful mass that sometimes glitters.  These pictures are from the Red Rock Canyon in Las Vegas and I took them while hiking there [...]

Fear of the Unknown

Halloween is right around the corner. Costume prep and candy purchases are in full swing at my house. In keeping with the spooky shenanigans going on this month, let’s talk a little bit about what scares us. For some, it’s spiders that give them the chills.  Others may fear public speaking, or maybe your business [...]

A Breath of Fresh Ideas

Spring has a way of motivating us. Spring cleaning. Spring home projects. The warmer weather calls us outside; and the light breeze coaxes us to open windows that have been shut tight all winter. I love that breath of fresh air that rushes through the house and clears out all the remaining stuffiness. It leaves [...]

Tax Time Promises to Ourselves

We laugh, we cry, we cuss. And then we make promises to ourselves to do better next year. As we countdown to the April 15th tax filing deadline, some people are glad the task is done, and some are wondering if they will manage to file on time or need to request an extension. Returns [...]

Make Time to Save Time

Spring break, spring cleaning and tax preparation. What do they all have in common? It’s what most of my contacts on social media are currently doing, thinking or stressing about. Ah, spring! We seem to both love you and dislike you at the same time. And speaking of time, every small business owner is trying [...]
