The word “no” has become my best friend, but I haven’t always been that comfortable with saying it. I used to feel the need to say “yes” to all my clients and friends to keep them happy. In the end, though, I was the one who would end up unhappy.

When I would agree to start something I didn’t want to I’d end up feeling resentful and angry and my work became more of a chore than fun. If it

When I arrived back in Florida, my stellar USMC family made my Pool Party Baby Shower dreams come true.

So without further ado, here are the details for your pinning pleasure…or whatever.

Freelancing isn’t for everyone. In theory picking and choosing projects, making your own schedule and setting your own rates sounds great. But the reality of freelance can be littered with lack of work and slow days that can lead to a strain on your income.

Personally, I enjoy the freedom of being a freelance publicist, but there are challenges that people often don’t realize. These challenges are things to keep in mind before deciding you want

I’m sure by now everyone’s read something about the studies done on how sitting for eight hours a day affects your body. My line of work is no exception.

I have been thinking a lot about my office space lately. I’m not the type of person that can work productively from home so about three years ago I joined a local coworking space. It helped me differentiate between work and home life by providing a dedicated where and when for work. It also gave me human interaction, which is very important to me. I have found an office setup is well worth the investment as it allows me

What’s Up with Glam?

I have had this post on my to do list for a few weeks now. Everyday, I promise myself that I am going to write a “What’s Up with Glam?” entry, but then it never gets done. There are a variety of reasons why I haven’t been writing much about Glam lately.

Partially I have been putting off this post because I don’t actually know what to write. For some reason, I have a hard time talking about Glamtrepreneur. I feel like the cause is very close to my heart, so I don’t like sharing it with people. I know,
