My Blogs

My goodness - it HAS been a while!  But 2009 was an interesting - if challenging - year for me.  Personal and family issues that needed to be dealt with.  If you are a reader of some of my other blogs, then you know what I am talking about.

Yes, I have been more active on my other blogs.  It's not that I don't love this one - sharing general business building info with everyone is how I started building a presence online.  But, as I said, it's been an interesting year, and time has been tight so I've been devoting more time to the more narrowly-focused blogs.  Truthfully, they are a bit easier to write since they are targeted to a very specific market for a specific purpose.

Don't Trip Over Your Brain! is my network marketing blog.  I am involved in a great network marketing opportunity (love that whole multiple income streams concept!).  The blog provides tips and advice for others in the network marketing business.  It doesn't matter which company you are with, you will find helpful information here.  Of course, I also talk about my own personal experience with the company I am associated with.  If you are looking for advice on how to build your network marketing business - or if you are looking for a great company to get started with - stop by and check it out.

The Adventures of Traveling Bob is the second blog I started.  Actually, it started as a joke after a VERY late night conversation with some fellow marketers at one of Ken McArthur's jvAlert events.  (Honestly, guys, did you ever think it would actually amount to anything?).  Bob is my little dog who just happens to love to travel with me.  He shares his travel tips and advice with other four-legged friends who travel with their owners.  A former shelter dog himself, he also features different shelters in an effort to help other dogs (and cats and even rabbits) find a home.  Add to that his input on everything from grooming to nutrition - and his ongoing squabble with co-traveler and purebred dog, Austin, and maybe you can see why this blog has grown from joke to income producing business.  Bob (along with Austin and the rest of the Whiteley menagerie) will be launching their own site in the next few days.  Stay tuned!

Baby Boomer Business Coach, like Traveling Bob, was born at a jvAlert event.  (See?  If you need new ideas, this is where you need to be!).  Along with doses of encouragement from me, this site posts articles by and about members of the Boomer Biz Coach family.  I admit, I've been a bit neglectful of this one.  BoomerBizCoach will be launching a new site with some great online coaching programs in the next few days.  Once that's ready, we'll be moving the blog there as well and I promise, it will be posted to more frequently.

BoomerBizCoach Recommends.  What do Denise Michaels, PopArtDiva, Karlyn, and Felicia Slattery have in common?  I think they are fabulous!  I highly recommend them to anyone needing assistance in their respective fields of expertise.  And as I find others who are just too great not to share - other people, tools, sites, books - I'll be sharing them here.  If you are like me and need all the help you can get - stop by and see who and what taught me what I have learned along the way.

God Has Big Plans for You.  I am a Christian.  But there was a time when I doubted my faith and even my reason for living.  Some wonderful friends helped me rediscover Christ and when I turned my life over to him, everything changed.  I have tried to follow his lead since then, and now I feel called to share him with other women.  Ladies, if you believe that being a Christian woman means sacrifice and want, you are so wrong.  God wants us all to live in abundance.  He has a plan for you.  Are you ready to find out what it is?

Things have settled down at last in my life.  I once again have time to devote to all of my passions.  So I will once again be posting here regularly.  Meanwhile, I thank those of you have have stayed in touch through these other blogs.  And I hope others will stop by and get to know me a bit better.
