The Secret to Meatless Meals

I’m not a vegetarian. My husband loves to hunt, and I will gladly eat venison. Chicken is a staple of my diet. But, I like experimenting with meatless days.

What To Do When Communication Breaks Down

In honor of Throwback Thursday, I want to throw back to 2012, when I was working at a desk job and at 24 years old, was stressed out because I didn’t feel fulfilled in my line of work. My life then took me to the coast of Alabama, where I left that desk job and […]

How to Build Your Ideal Team

In my experience, it’s very easy to get discouraged in this type of business. Someone you know may quit, your family may not “get” it […]
