Business Organization | Monthly "Duty" Days

  • Ask Anything

about the “business” end of my work week and how I manage everything. Well, since I don’t have an intern or a paid assistant, I have to be on top of my game… constantly. And that’s hard work.  Running a small business is like raising a child. (Obviously I don’t know what it takes to raise a child but this is the best comparison I could think of!). Why?

They are leaders and they share an amazing joy with anyone and everyone that comes into their life. I felt this joy the first time I met Lisa. She’s just magnetic. You meet her and you love her. It’s as simple as that.  Brandon is the same way. Before the big day, so many people mentioned to me that they knew this sweet couple. Now granted, most of those people were JMU grads but still. Brandon and Lisa are two people created to lead
