I have been through several seasons in my life: Wife, mother, divorcee, empty nester. One constant throughout those seasons is my identity being tied to each of them. I was known as “So n So’s wife or ex-wife”. I was my daughters' Mom. I am even known as “LeftEye’s G-Ma”, and people speak to me through her because they know her name and not mine.
I knew if I worked hard and never gave up, the money would come. And it did!
One of the most integral parts of starting and growing a business (or achieving anything in life) is knowing your “why”. Why am I starting my own business? Why am I risking my finances and time to do something very few people do? Once you find the answer to your why, you are on the way to finding your success!
It's hard to believe we're in the final stretch of 2021. We made it through 2020 with great expectations for 2021. At minimum, I thought we would have the Pandemic behind us, but instead it's becoming our new normal.
All we do is WIN is an affirmation and our theme for this quarter’s Be Well Magazine issue. Wendy Campbell, was selected as our cover contributor for several reasons.

For as long as I can remember, I was trying to please other people. It took the majority of my life to realize that the one person I had not given any thought to was me.
I grew up in a single-parent household. But I was surrounded by so much family so I always felt loved. There is something to say about a father’s love and attention that brings a different kind of life to a young girl; I did not have that. My Dad was the popular guy in town and the hometown athlete. I thought if I played sports as he did, he would notice me. But he did not. Or at least I didn’t feel that way.

You can choose to be a NEW YOU, or go back to the Old You from years gone by; OR choose to do the Same Ol’, Same Ol’ way of handling your goals, dreams and vision.
Yes, there is a difference between old and same ol’, same ol’. The Old You was growing and experiencing various things—probably aLOT of really bad things. However, the Same Ol’, Same Ol’ is still the old you but doing the same things over and over again finding yourself facing the same challenges from year to year. Repeating the procrastination, repeating the doubt in your mind, repeating the excuses you have managed to build up, and relying on them to keep you repeatedly operating in the same ol’, same ol’ just becomes useless, redundant and wasteful.
