Sharing the Struggles and Joy
I have so much I want to share with you …
from my experience of homeschooling for over eight years
(including things that worked and things that didn’t!)
I’m very passionate about the businesses that we’re running and love to share with moms that you can have a career and homeschool too. You don’t have to pick one over the other.
I love to organize and with all of our moves, my house is a mess right now and I need to organize again.
I have so much to share on organizing your homeschool, your work, your business, your life in general, things that have helped me and the systems that I’ve put into place that have basically saved my sanity!
Welcome! I want to help you realize your dreams!

When to Say No Obviously, there are times when you should say yes rather than no. If your boss offers you a raise, you would be foolish to say "No thank you." Alternately, you probably shouldn't say yes to a 50% drop in salary either. So, when should you say "no"? You...read more
