Retreat and Recharge: A Quick Day Trip to Julian, California


I don’t care who you are - an artist, entrepreneur, busy mom, or student - everyone needs a break once in awhile.

Every week I take one day to break out of the monotony of sitting in front of the computer all day writing and working. As someone who works from home and enjoys what I do, it’s easy to get caught up in the work. At the same time, though, I can burn out real quick. So when a friend invited me to do a quick day trip out of the city to the sleepy town of Julian, I was game.

Sidenote: Julian was #6 in my post about 20 free and cheap things to do in San Diego.

How do you scale your business so that you can truly focus on what you love to do? You want to help people and add value to their lives, but the To Do list is a mile long.

For awhile now I’ve been wanting to outsource various tasks. I’ve done it every now and then, but I admit that I’m somewhat of a control freak when it comes to my business. Today I revisited this idea of delegation because I started to feel a little overwhelmed by everything I want to accomplish within the next month.

I made a list of tasks I believe would help me get more done and thought I’d share if you’re also thinking about what activities to outsource in your business.

Inspiration For Artists and Entrepreneurs: Living an Unorthodox Life

Captain Fantastic

Have you ever seen the movie "Captain Fantastic"?

It's about a man and his family who live an unorthodox life. Some call it the hippie or "living off the grid" lifestyle. I like to think of it as living with the flow of life. Anyways, in the movie tragedy happens and the family goes on a mission. Their relatvies never really accepted their way of life, so it becomes a challenge for Captain Fantastic trying to prove that his lifestyle is just as viable as "normal" society's way of life.

What To Do When You Fail?


I've started building a new website that will help people launch their own online business (Here's a sneak peek) and gave myself a deadline to have it finished. I did not meet that "deadline", but instead of being down on myself like I typically would, I took a different view this time. In this video I talk about a few key takeaways from this whole process and what I learned about myself.
