The phones are ringing, and my everyday excitement is amazing!


This post is for women over forty!  Not that I am 40?  Nope still celebrating my fifth anniversary of 39.  

Shameless plug #Slender Solutions, located at 13817 Village Mill Drive, Suite M Midlothian, Virginia 23114! Check it out!

My new wake up time is giving me the “happy dance”!  What’s really crazy is I used to gear my sleep schedule around my husband.  If he worked the night shift and didn’t get home until 12:00am I stayed awake for him.  If he didn’t get up the next day until 10:00, or okay maybe noon, I slept in or quietly answered emails on my phone, but I stayed by his side.  My business back then was basically on autopilot and with just one teenager left at home, it wasn’t that big of a deal to be basically just the wifey and the Mom.

Now, that the business is retail, although by appointment only, I cannot sleep past 7:30am!  I can lay there and toss and turn or I can get up and get moving.  As long as I don’t wake up the sleeping King, it all works out!  My to-do list brain is in full guilt mode if I don’t get up and get to it!

This is making me very happy to have the luxury to help inspire others and give back to the people that helped me out when I started my crazy entrepreneurship back in 2003!  It’s nice when a client comes in, shares their goals and what they want to achieve. I can actually help them get there.  This is putting a smile on my face every day, and suddenly the little things I used to worry about really don’t cross my mind much.  Is my house still spotless?  NO.  Ask me if I still care?  Not really, this OCD perfectionist is becoming quite chill…thanks to the new business, girlfriends, and Xanex!  A winning combo if you ask me.

I know my kids have to be happier, even if they say they’re not, LOL…talk to me again after you turn 30.  I am no longer obsessing and over-parenting grown adults!  Yes, folks, I have overcome diversity.  You didn’t read that wrong.  I was overcoming adversity much earlier in life, but the switch has flipped and I’m just not going to feel guilty about it.

I haven’t added the music in awhile…So given these blessings, you will have to bere with me –

Small business owner since 2003. Trying to achieve great health and overcome adversity! Recently I was told to take a year off from physician marketing consulting, to work on my health goals. I really had no intention of following this advice, with a survivor mentality, and a hard head, I did not start making changes until my visit to the Neurologist. His words rocked my world, and I am writing about that experience. As life happens, I ended opening a weight loss spa. These blogs are the first step in marketing.
