Treat Yourself To A Prenatal Massage, You Won’t Regret It

For the most part I’ve had a very easy going pregnancy. I’m only about 5 pounds heavier than my pre-pregnancy weight, I haven’t had any swelling (yet) and I’m moving around pretty well if I say so myself. The only major discomfort I’ve experienced has been terrible back pain and an inability to get a good night’s sleep because of it.

As someone who believes in the power of resting and getting an adequate amount of sleep, this has been more than frustrating. On one hand I try to be positive and look at it as preparation for the late night feedings that are just weeks away, but on the other, it makes me sad. I really need a good, long night’s sleep as often as I can get it for the very same reason – it’ll be unheard of for the next couple of years.

7 Business Habits That Will Keep You Broke

I vowed that I would get my stuff together with my businesses and I’ve been plotting and working on since some new things I want to try for about six months now. The main thing I’ve been working to correct about my own business is getting rid of some of the bad habits that have led to me not making the money I should be making (if any at all).

The list I’ve come up with below describes some of the habits we can let ourselves pick up at the expense of our wallets. I know being in business isn’t all about the money, but money is a huge factor. It’s how we provide for ourselves and our families, pay off debts, how we can remain in business and treat ourselves if we want (or need) to.

These habits are some that I’ve unfortunately struggled with but they also are things I’ve experienced on the receiving end as a customer. Let’s go through seven habits that we need to break today.

Why You Should Get Excited When Trouble Comes Your Way

In my short 29 years of life there’s one fact that I’ve come to learn and accept: as sure as you’ll live to see day after day, you’ll also see troubles in your life from time to time.

Of course it feels great to imagine our days consistently stress-free, picture perfect and easy but that’s not reality nor can I think back to any mantra, scripture or quote that promised us it would be that way. We can even “choose” to not let people, things and situations stress us out, but the possibility that they will or that those situations would even arise still remains.

So what do we do about it?

[REGISTER] Let’s Get Social: A Comprehensive Social Media Workshop For Small Business Owners & Creatives

Simien Media Group (my public relations and media agency) is proud to announce its first workshop of the year, Let’s Get Social!

If your brand is not a regular on social media not only are you severely behind the times, you’re completely missing out. Social media is a free tool that allows you to make it easier for customers and potential customers to find you, connect with your audience on a personal level and increase your sales. On the flip side, you may be posting on social media regularly but without a real plan therefore you aren’t getting the results you’d hoped for.

If either of those scenarios describe you or if you want to learn more about the most popular platforms and how to “work” them, this workshop is for you.
