Years ago I was completely oblivious to the online world. I don’t mean 20 years ago, or before the Internet existed, I mean like 2013.

I spent 8 years at the bedside before I graduated with my NP degree. I was so excited to get started and felt like “something” was about to happen. I had been a nurse in the Neuro ICU for many years in a couple different hospitals and I was tired of being “just a nurse”.Read More
This past week my 4-year old son Matthew and I went over my parents house for dinner. Matthew chose not to eat dinner and even though he was warned he would not get dessert, he defiantly chose not to eat. A bold choice for a 4-year old, even when dessert is yummy homemade cupcakes.Read More
It seems like no matter what business idea you think of it’s already been done by someone else to the umpteenth degree. When you do come up with an idea, you simply can’t come up with a way to monetize it. Why would anyone want this or why would anyone pay for that?Read More
Have you ever had the experience where you and some friends or colleagues were talking about ideas about how something could be better if you just…
