Updates & 5 Productivity tips…

Sitting up, dressed, AND drinking coffee for the first time in almost 10 days. Maybe I’m starting to adapt to the med change? Oh, I hope so. So much I want to do…

(If you’re not sure what’s been going on, check mine and Gizmo’s social media. Links at the bottom of the page.)

So grateful for the friends and family who have called to check on me, and prayed for me and with me. So blessed that Steve has handled all this craziness with such patience.

This also came to fruition over the last few weeks. I’m proud to announce that two of my stories are included. (Click on image to go to Amazon for more details or to purchase.)

Before the doctor cut my meds in half with no warning, I already had a full schedule of commitments for the fall. I had just launched a Facebook group for serious writers and bought plane tickets for a big event. In the next two weeks, I’m scheduled to speak in Carrollton, TX on the 24th, have another meeting where I’m being presented as a board member nominee on the 26th, and then have a big series of surprises scheduled out of state starting the 27th.

I have until the end of September on this dosage, and then October 1 we change to another medication completely, and I have been warned it may not be pretty. And I have two big events, Writers in the Field and Bouchercon, that month and another speaking gig, so will not have time for this foolishness. I will be working ahead as much as possible, just in case.

Additionally, November is our 30th wedding anniversary, and we hope to celebrate accordingly.

The lessons I’ve learned living with my crazy body probably apply to almost everyone, but especially those who have unpredictable lives for whatever reason…

I hope this is helpful and encouraging, and that you are able to learn from my experiences. After more than two decades of coaching and teaching, and a decade of living as a Stroke Survivor with invisible disabilities, I have a huge toolbox of tips and tricks to make life and business more manageable. I love teaching and coaching more than pretty much anything, and have become creative in finding ways to do that outside of the classroom and boardroom.

I currently have openings for two more professional coaching clients. If you are interested in working with me, send me an email and let’s see if we are a good fit.

Also, regarding the new FB group:

Mission Statement:
