Mini Habits: The Power of Small Changes

By Tammy | July 19, 2021

The mini-habit is the power of small changes. It’s taking the premise that doing a whole lot of small things will eventually add up to something amazing. Think, for example, of what would happen if you only read a couple of news articles every day? Before you know it, you’d have accomplished the goal of becoming more informed, and would be better able to handle discussions about current events.

Working From Home (still)

By Tammy | July 7, 2021

Last year I gave you tips for working at home, something many were not accustomed to and definitely not prepared for. It was a temporary situation, or so we thought, and we can accept short-term change. However, many are still working remotely, some started their own work-from-home business, and others, like Julia K. have been placed in a permanent remote location as many businesses have found the true benefits of virtual offices, but many of the employees don’t share the same optimism.

If Disaster Strikes, Will You Be Prepared?

By Tammy | June 14, 2021

Chances are that sooner or later you’ll face some sort of a disaster that will leave you without power, and hinder your access to purchase necessary supplies. It could be a natural disaster like a hurricane, snowstorm, flood, tornado, or earthquake. It could be a manmade disaster that has the power grid failing or requires you to stay put in your home such as the COVID-19 pandemic. No matter what strikes, you can lessen the personal impact by preparing for disasters most likely to occur in your area.

Outsourcing: The Key to Success

By Tammy | March 15, 2021
