Comments Off on Interior Scandinavian Style Ideas


It has been a whirlwind couple of weeks … first it was spent celebrating my brother’s wedding in the gorgeous Tuscan countryside then heading to Florence for a few days on our own  (promise to share next week). We’ve now been back in London a week and I’ve been so sick that I’ve been locked up at home. There was a brief Canadian thanksgiving celebrating over the weekend. I couldn’t completely indulge in seconds and thirds as I would have liked, but it was fabulous.

Looks a little like my last week…

I have been writing an interior blog about Scandinavian style and what inspires me since June and in October I opened a webshop with products from new and upcoming designers from the Nordic countries. One of our recent additions are the beautiful prints by Ylva Skarp.

Comments Off on Create Your First Info Product Before The Hangover Even Wears Off


63592750462675948133989820_careersIf you want to make real money online, spread your brand and build trust with your audience, you need a product.

No matter how small your operation might be, creating your own product is the best way to gain clients and customers, spread your message and, let’s face it – make money!

My friend is now taking GMAT classes and applying to an MBA program and all she talks is how every small business is missing the boat because they are afraid to create their own product. I understand this fear. For us, entrepreneurs,  product creation can be intimidating the first time, which is why she and I got your back with a free MBA inspired report.

When you download your copy of this free report (see bottom), I’ll show you how to simplify the process of product creation and roll out your first money maker in one weekend.

That’s right, starting Friday night, you can be selling by Monday morning, with plenty of time to play in between. And if you think yourself about getting an MBA degree check this website for MBA courses that don’t require the GMAT.

Success is about more than money

ALL SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE AGREE THAT THEY WERE SUCCESSFUL BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO DO SOMETHING WITH THEIR LIFE. THEY WANTED THEIR LIFE TO MEAN SOMETHING BEFORE THEY LEFT THIS WORLD. THEY THEN SET ABOUT ACHIEVING THOSE GOALS AND AS A RESULT, THEY GOT RICH. SEVERAL OF THE PEOPLE INTERVIEWED BY RICHARD ST. JOHN, HIMSELF VERY SUCCESSFUL SAID THEY WOULD HAPPILY PAY SOMEONE TO DO WHAT THEY WERE NOW DOING THEY ENJOYED IT THAT MUCH.

So ask yourself this question, “What do I want my life to mean?”

Then write down your dream life as if it has happened, really see it in your minds eye, write down what you will have to give up to achieve that, write a plan to start you on the path to success, lastly write down one simple thing you will do each day to get there.

Try This Easy and Delicious Cilantro Citrus Salad

Comments Off on Try This Easy and Delicious Cilantro Citrus Salad


Today, I would like to share couple of my favorite recipes that feature citrus as key elements.

As soon as the weather gets warmer, immediately I start craving salads. This cilantro citrus salad is such a light, fresh option for a summer lunch. I made this one vegan, but you could easily add grilled salmon or chicken for a more filling option.  With chickpeas for protein, avocado for Vitamin E and folic acid, and oranges for Vitamin C you can skip the multi vitamin. This salad is packed with vitamins and nutrients, but the flavor is the main reason I love this salad.

New project kick off


I’m super excited, after almost 3 months of hard work of my colleagues and I, our free GED online classes are ready for students. We cooperate with BestGEDClasses.org for the best results! The GED (General Education Development) program is aimed at helping adults improve their career options and giving them a chance to access higher education if they pass the GED exam. In the US there are around 40 million adults who do not have a high school diploma or equivalent.

More than 500,000 people complete the GED exam every year. The new GED exam now consists of four sections: Language Arts (reading and writing combined), Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. Our GED prep classes allow online preparation and are free of charge, they consist of online lessons with audio and questions that check your comprehension of the topic that was mentioned in the lesson.

We also work on extensive guidelines for students about effective studying. I thought this subject can be also interested for you so here is a summary. Do you want to check your knowledge? Try these free GED Practice Tests by BestGEDClasses.org that we helped develop to get you all set for the GED, I can assure you it’s not that easy.

Why People Are Suing Their Family?


How much money would it take for you to sue your entire family?  What if 100 million dollars was at stake?  Would you sue your mother?  Stop talking to your children?  I know, it sounds absurd, but people do it.  And I’m not sure if I should judge them until I’ve been in their shoes. Let me explain.

I recently read an interesting article in Vanity Fair about the Agnelli family, they are like the Kennedy’s of Italy, extremely rich and with lots of drama.  When the patriarch of the family died in 2003, the only daughter asked a series of questions about her father’s estate (valued in the billions) that resulted in one of Italy’s most talked about scandals.  The daughter, who is 52, has eight children and is angry that her father’s wealth has been shrouded in secrecy and that certain of her children did not receive the inheritance that they deserved.

What An Amazing Week!


939b8c7b4ccd4b9abf3e9a4e87a38893In case you’ve been living under a rock, or don’t read my blog, you’ll probably know that on Monday I started my new job as manager of a lovely little Spar just down the road from my house. Since Monday I don’t think that my feet have hit the ground at all. I’ve been off for one day, and even then I ended up in the shop so that I could transfer stock down to my old shop to get rid of it.

It’s been an eye opener. It’s a fantastic little shop and the sheer volume of customers and sales is shockingly high. I can’t believe so much stock can move of the shelves that quickly. It’s certainly going to be a challenge improving on what’s already a fantastic little store, but I’m sure I will manage it.

How decided should I be when I submit my college applications?


Last year when I submitted my college applications, I remember wondering often if I was sure enough of where I wanted to go to school. Now, my girlfriend is beginning to apply to schools, and she’s feeling anxious because she’s really not sure where she wants to go still.

Obviously, before turning in college applications, you have a nice variety of colleges to choose from. But once application due dates start hitting, your options will become much narrower. This can be a good thing, or it can be a bad thing, depending on how you want to look at it. But whichever way, it’s important to feel at least some level of certainty with the schools you chose to apply to.

You want each school you send an application to be a potential choice for you, not just some school you choose for the sake of choosing. Unless you have enough money to apply to schools simply for bragging rights, applying to schools on a whim is going to cost a lot of money (and time).
Here are some ways of helping to feel good about your choices:

Holy Awkwardness


Saturday is my sister’s bachelorette party. I have been planning for weeks. I have a pre-fixe menu at a really nice restaurant for an amazing price. We are going clubbing/dancing afterward. And I am going to the hairdresser on Saturday so I don’t have to worry about styling my hair!

Back up about 18 months to my bachelorette party. As my sister and I get out of our car to go into the restaurant we run into my cousins going to a restaurant next door. They ask why we are there and my sister says it’s for my bachelorette party. She then opens the gift bag she was carrying and shows them (I can’t see) some of the “stuff” she bought for the party in my honor. Stuff to make me wear during the party.Read More »

The Best Thing Ever


As luck would have it, two kids – Neighbor Boy, eight and Neighbor Girl, five – live just down the road from us. They’ve come over several times to play and on Friday, Julia went over to their house for the first time. I stood at the gate and watched her dash excitedly across the driveway and into their yard while my emotions went to battle.

The proud parent in me was swelling, all, “My little girl, playing at someone else’s house for the first time…a childhood rite of passage. She’s growing up!” The rest of me, however, was screaming, “This growing up business is happening too f**** fast! Stop growing up, dammit!”
