Clever Girl Takes a break

I thought I was being pretty clever staying up last night. I cleaned as much as I could while everyone slept. My plan was to have the house cleaned, get up and do some Thanksgiving shopping so I could spend the day making more bear greetings. Did it work? Not!
The crowds were ridiculous, I lost my holiday cheer trying to find a parking spot and the only turkey I could find was still frozen. By the time I arrived home I really didn't want to do anything but sit on the couch and pray I didn't hear the word "Mom"!
I look forward to Thanksgiving with all the fixings !!

Happy Holidays

Books for Women going into Business


Okay you know we all need a little inspiration from time to time. Sometimes a good book can be that inspiration-especially for the ladies. So I pulled out two books I think can help.If you thinking about starting a business or already have a business-take a look at Mommy Millionaire by Kim Lavine. This book is a step-by-step guide to building a business. It's easy to read. You will not want to put it down.

Another great book is Crafting a Business by Kathie Fitzgerald. In this book you find many ladies explaining to us how they made money doing what they love to do. I wish they were free.
Hope you enjoy
