Realistic Tools For Growing Your Business

Why were they all so BROKE?

Oct 11, 2020

Remember Saturday mornings?

Sitting in the TV’s glow, Froot Loops turning your bowl of milk purply-blue, then slurping that sweet deliciousness down…

Or maybe you were a Cap’n Crunch fan, even though that crap would rip the SHIT out of the roof o’your mouth because you’d suck out the milk first…

In the Grimm household, we woke up extra early to enjoy cartoons & a bowlful of sugar because after my parents woke up…

IT WAS TIME FOR CHORES, Y’ALL.

Vacuuming, laundry, sweeping, mopping, bathroom cleaning, dusting a house filled with SIX...

Why I’m Sorry Was Never Enough

Oct 04, 2020

“I’m sorry” should be enough, right?

But when I’m pissed off, “I’m sorry” is simply NOT ENOUGH for me!

Turns out, I’m the worst person to apologize to.

Let me back up. I’d noticed a horrible little pattern -

When my family or friends offered me simple, direct apologies, I wasn’t satisfied.
Give me a simple, “I’m sorry”, and I’d leave feeling more irritated… and petty.

Seemed I NEEDED MORE.

(What a jerk, right? I know. But stay with me. I promise I’ll get better.)

A-searching I went & found...

Why I Broke Up With This Copywriter

Sep 20, 2020

There are two types of people in the world:

First up are the people who are totally comfortable having those little red indicator numbers all over their phone.

Me? I’m the second one – a person who dreams of inbox ZERO.

Nothing unread. Everything responded to – or filed.

What about you? Actually, never mind! It totally doesn’t matter! This blog is NOT ABOUT INBOX ZERO!

It’s about how ruthless I am about who I allow into my email -

I whittled myself down to subscribing to only 2 copywriter/email marketing experts who brought the most value...

Each has a quirky...

My addiction to the invisible finish line

Sep 13, 2020

I’ve got a little habit that’s becoming an ugly addiction - 

I could put a stop to it…but I’m simply not doing much about it.

Around 9:15ish every night, I give a big yawn & say G’night to my husband & son –

They’re eager to start watching something violent and distasteful – so they gleefully blow kisses my way…

‘NIGHT, Mom!

‘NIGHT, Babes.

The dog follows me. The cats follow me.

And I am FINALLY ALONE.

I crawl into bed and…

open up Tik Tok.

Once there, for a glorious HOUR, I scrollllll. Enjoying the...

Can we pretend this never happened?

Sep 06, 2020

I wanted to pretend that COVID wasn’t happening.

Back in late February 2020, when COVID was starting to become part of everyday life in the US –

I wondered if I should mention it in my content…

I thought This is going to go away soon.

Do I want to address it in a blog someone may read later?

Maybe I’ll just pretend it’s not really happening.

How ridiculous! I can’t pretend it didn’t happen. It’s affected all of us – so differently, so deeply –

But I thought I could get away with pretending…

And frankly, I’ve been...

Her anxiety was more than just a pain in the ass

Aug 30, 2020

The job had been dropped in her lap accidentally. She was sure of it.

Muddling through her new position as Director of Client Relations, Rachael waited to be found out for the fraud she was.

Her anxiety ripped into high gear. It was hard to sleep –

But sleep was all she wanted to do. Napping became an escape from reality

Because reality felt really risky.

Avoiding risk became normal

Should she make that decision at work? But…what if…they think…I’m not sure…

Should she be in a relationship? That guy…what if…he...

What fresh hell is next – and when will I get a damn BREAK?

Aug 23, 2020

Every night I’m eating chips. I’m not even hungry! Why am I doing this?

I just want to stop drinking at night. But every night, I’m pouring myself a glass.

I’m snapping at my kids. I hate myself – and I think they hate me.

I’m embarrassed that I know the UPS guy by his first name – because…online shopping.

I’m bingeing on TikTok. I look up & four hours has gone by. FOUR HOURS.

^^Welcome to the innermost thoughts of what’s going on with REAL women.

They are exhausted. Depleted.

They JUST WANT to KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT NEXT.

But...
