You’re Never to Cool to Learn Something

You’re Never to Cool to Learn Something

This weekend, as I was reading How Women Rise and prepping for the blog post this week, something completely hit me and left me with one of those, “Are you kidding me?” moments. I know Jess and I have talked about the 12 habits in past tense like we’re reformed habit...
Enough Already! You’re Not A Stinking Island!

Enough Already! You’re Not A Stinking Island!

Are you an island? No, I don’t mean a piece of land covered in sand, littered with palm trees, in lush blue waters. I mean, are you acting like you’re an island, running your business in isolation as if it’s a lone, remote island in the middle of the Pacific?...
Are You Ready to Rise?

I Never Saw It Coming

I Never Saw It Coming

I’ve got a confession. I’ve always been one for big revelations. I like surprises, and I love a good epiphany. Just ask my college girlfriends about all the epiphanies I had about my then boyfriend, now husband, Jeremy, in college. So, as I sat down to write this...
The Day I Stopped Running

The Day I Stopped Running

For those who know me, I bet you’re saying to yourself, “I never knew Christy was a runner. That’s a shocker.”It’s kind of a shocker, and it’s taken awhile to become comfortable admitting and putting myself in that category. Honestly, I’ve never considered...
Books, Glitter Bombs, and Your Business

Books, Glitter Bombs, and Your Business

I love books. For those of you who know me, this will not come as a surprise, but I love a good novel. In fact, for a long time, I rarely read anything besides novels. I didn’t want to read anything work related (and rarely did) because it felt like… well, work. So,...
