Having One of Those Weeks

I’m having one of those weeks. You know the kind where no matter how hard you push yourself (in work and in life) you don’t feel like you are crossing off anything on your to-do list?   I knew the weeks leading up to April were going to be rough. I have a client expecting […][...]

I Don’t Find The Time to Exercise, I Make It

This week has been rough with work and something had to give….and it wasn’t going to be exercising because if I have learned anything about myself, it is that I need to exercise especially in times of high stress. So since I put blog writing on the back burner this week; here are some in[...]

Exercise=More Excited and Enthusiastic Laney

The last two weeks have been one of those weeks where I am too stressed to function at life. Here’s an image for that…I am pretty sure the only thing that got me to change my clothing was the fact that I had to go into the office. It was an effort picking out clothes […][...]

Defying the Odds, Tim Tebow Style

So we all know I am a HUGE Tim Tebow fan. There is just no love lost once you meet him, shake his hand, and watch him take your university to two National Championships. A lot of what makes Tim such an impressive player is his determination. He knows he has weaknesses, but he works […][...]

Should I Stay Or Should I Go Now

I’m one of those people that works late. I typically start my day (even when I was working IN the office) no later than 8:20 a.m. and often don’t get finish up until after 7:30 p.m. First off, let me say I am NOT complaining, it is the nature of my job, which I love. […][...]

Managing Accounts as a Defensive Specialist

I’ve been a little MIA lately, between work exploding and wedding finalization I was just a wee-bit overwhelmed. During that time, I got a pep talk from a supervisor who I have to say has an uncanny ability to pick the right words and truly light a fire under you.  The pep talk got me [&helli[...]
