Professional reading a business book.

I didn’t think I was going to have a book to write something about this week but I was further along than I thought. I was thinking there would be no post because I haven’t gotten around to taking some pictures of my recording setup. Well, here I am with another book review. This time…

My favorite books are the fun books and I just finished another good one. I’m not an expert at writing book reviews so these might just be more of what I enjoyed about the book and some of what I didn’t enjoy (not that there ever is anything I don’t enjoy). The last book was…

Professional reading a business book.

I just recently finished reading a business book in my alternating schedule of fun and business reading. This one was The E-Myth Revisited (and on Amazon) which overall was a worthwhile read.

Woman reading a book by water

Nearly two years ago I drastically changed my relationship with books. Prior to about February 2018 I read very few books in my life. I’d be lucky if I averaged about 2 a year. I read the usual books such as Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit (who hasn’t!?) but beyond that, I was…

The Most Important Part Of Working From Home

I’d like to think I was a pro in the work from home field (if it was a field). I’ve been doing it since 2013 and even before that I was averse to any office environment. All the distractions, the pointless conversation in the name of “team building,” and the discomfort of every aspect of…

Move Forward

Progress can seem like a scary thing sometimes. It can mean that the things we’re comfortable with are suddenly pulled out from under us. A world which everything is familiar can suddenly become a world we look around in and don’t recognize anything. Of course we all feel like this about something, but often not…
