A Beautiful Mess

When I got the text from my friend Christen, I was both thrilled and touched. The message said, "when can I buy one of your new compass pendants? I need it to add to my mess"! Christen's "mess" is a beautiful, sometimes tangled collection of necklaces that she wears every day. In Christen's own words, "it was important to me to own one of your compass necklaces because it reminds me to ask the Universe for guidance and direction, to stop trying to rely on my own very limited ability control things."

For Love or Money

Recently I was listening to an episode of a podcast hosted by Kate Ahl, an entrepreneur I respect. Kate, a Pinterest expert who helps clients and others use Pinterest to gain exposure, was talking about how business owners should identify pins that are doing especially well on Pinterest and re-pin them repeatedly. She mentioned that some of her clients balk at this advice, objecting that it’s boring to pin the same thing over and over again. If that’s how you feel, she suggested, it might be time to ask yourself if you really want to be running a business, or if it would make more sense to do what you do as a hobby.
