“Making the Magic” Column In Highlands Current Out Now

Even though I am a blogger, and have been so for many years, I have found it quite uncomfortable writing a personal column! Most of the articles I write for A Litle Beacon Blog or for Tin Shingle talk about a subject that is not me, even though part of my personal experience may be woven into the article. Here at Time Shingle, I let my biases or opinion show more than I do at A Little Beacon Blog, but that’s just a style choice.

For December’s column, I wanted to contribute joy to the world during the season, but wanted to be honest too, because financially and emotionally, it can be a very hard month for people. And those people may stay silent about it in their own night.

Also, what I’ve noticed about the column, is that people love print! They love seeing it in print! My own husband bought me a binder to clip and save these columns into. I don’t think he’s printed any of my blog articles! That’s how I know that print is not dead (ahem, Glamour, I wish you’d change your mind, Ms. Barry! We need your firey fierceness in print!). Actually I noticed this when I started A Little Beacon Blog. My digital publication may reach more people, but print makes a special imprint for people. Even ads, people would clip out.

Therefore I present to you, this month’s column for the Highlands Current , “Kid Friendly,” Out on newsstands now. Last year, I had a Bah Humbug Christmas, and this column explores it. I was trying to get with Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” but instead was vibing “Where Are You Christmas?” sung by Faith Hill from the human Grinch movie (not the cartoon). I made some discoveries, and this year am fully in Making the Magic mode, hence the title of the article, but it took a few adjustments to get there...


Here is a behind the scenes of me writing the column during a night shift of work while my husband put the kids to bed. Or that’s what he was supposed to do anyway :) 


Alright, Monday, What You Got For Me?

quote alright monday what you got for me.png

Hello and Happy Monday!

Mondays can be deliveries of good news in the form of people following up from outreach you did during the previous week. If you've been building upon your foundation of outreach, then opportunities begin to trickle in to you - which is always the dream. To help you continue to create your own luck, we have some tips for you:

Here's How You're Going To Have A Great Monday

  • Don't Rely On Your Brain
    Make your lists. Have paper in your bag or pocket, and/or your Notes or Calendar app open on your phone. The biggest trap to losing control of a Monday is thinking you know what you need to do, but forgetting the most important parts. Stick to your list. It's your boss.

  • Send That Invoice!
    This has been a re-emerging theme - people who do good work for people, then procrastinate sending the invoice, and then throwing the invoice out the window all together, fearing it too late. It's not! Send the invoice with a smile.

  • Reach Out To That Store aka Wholesale Account
    You need a new account, and now is a good time to reach out. You may close the deal in the new year, or possibly if you're local, the store wants the inventory now if they are having a good holiday season.

  • Do Fitness
    If it's stretching in the middle of the day, a quick set of pushups in the middle of your office, or walking to the grocery store. Move around! Get that blood moving and those those endorphins pumping. A fun stretch to do is the Back Stroke: move your arms in backward circles while sitting down or standing up.

  • Pitch Someone Who Would Be A Great Fit
    If you sell sponsorships, for a university or a foundation or anything, think of a company or individual who would be a great fit to sponsor what you do, and reach out to them. Feel the enthusiasm you see in the partnership, and let that enthusiasm come out in your email to them.

And, Happy Last Night of Hanukkah! Today is going to be a great day, even if you're snowed in down South. Today is Motivation Monday pretty much everywhere, but at Tin Shingle, it's also Money Monday. Go out there and make some. You can do it!
