Great Resource for Wellness Pros:

My husband Drew, always ahead of the technology curve, discovered via one of Seth Godin's book. is a  fun, quirky and also quite practical resource for getting all kinds of stuff done for your business for only $5. Yes, you read correctly. Five bucks.

And it's also a great resource for a quick laugh (some of the things people will do for $5 is laugh out loud funny.)

Drew had his hand writing turned into a font (you can see how he used it in the images of this blog post) and also paid $5 a customized graphic for his Facebook professional page (it's the image on the upper left hand side of his FB page).

Why are people doing this? It's an unusual way to get the word out about their business for sure. The idea being, if you like what I gave you for $5, perhaps you'll invest in something else I'm doing. Some are doing it just for fun. Others to build a portfolio. Who knows. No need to think about it too much. It's only five bucks. If what you paid for stinks, it's not a big loss.

The point: Gone are the days where you have to invest a lot to get attractively designed marketing materials. No more excuses not to have a personalized web presence.

Have fun at

To your continued success,

What to Do for Your Biz During the Holiday Break

If you're like me and you get an urge to do some "spring" cleaning during the holiday break, here are a few suggestions to help you and your business feel ready to go in 2010: 1) Declutter and clean up your office

Whether you work at home or see clients in-person, either way it's a great time to make your office 'homebase' ready for 2010.

Organize, find a place for everything and get rid of most things that just taking up space.

One thing I like to do is get rid of, or give away, three things that no longer reflect where I want to be in the year ahead. An old, cheap filing drawer, clutter, knick knacks, etc...

If you need help with this, membership into includes a class recording and transcript on "Home Office Organizing Secrets."

2) Update your social networking presence Make sure the information is currant and everything is on message. Or decide to join a social networking community and see what all the hoopla is about.

If you need help with this, membership into includes a class recording and transcript on "How to Authentically Share Your Gifts and Talents on Facebook".

3) Go through your current website and update it

Make sure your programs, bio, etc... are up to date or simply just remove the stuff that's no longer relevant.

These are just a few simple ideas to turn your holiday time off and that urge to "clear the decks" into feeling ready for January.

Start with whatever ever you have the most energy for. Just consider that it is the holiday time and if you choose to do one of these things, aim to make it enjoyable instead of "work". Light a candle, play nice music, and get some favorite snacks to fuel you.

Happy Holidays,
