Overcoming Fear and Taking Action: A Guide to Achieving Your Business Goals

February 27, 2023 in Community News

Setting goals is a crucial part of running a successful business. However, simply setting goals is not enough to achieve success. It is essential to take action on those goals to turn them into reality. Unfortunately, fear and lack of confidence can prevent business owners from taking the necessary actions to achieve their goals, leading to failure. In this blog post, we will discuss how to take action on your goals and why being afraid or lacking confidence can cause you to fail.

  1. Break down your goals into manageable steps One of the reasons people fail to take action on their goals is that they seem too overwhelming. To overcome this, it is essential to break down your goals into manageable steps. Start with the end goal in mind and work backward, identifying the steps you need to take to get there. Make each step manageable and achievable so that you can easily track your progress.
  2. Create a plan of action Once you have broken down your goals into manageable steps, create a plan of action. Identify what you need to do, when you need to do it, and what resources you need. This plan will help you stay on track and ensure that you are taking the necessary actions to achieve your goals.
  3. Focus on one goal at a time Trying to tackle too many goals at once can lead to feeling overwhelmed and lead to inaction. Instead, focus on one goal at a time. This will help you stay focused and motivated, making it easier to take the necessary actions to achieve your goals.
  4. Take action despite fear or lack of confidence Fear and lack of confidence are two of the biggest obstacles to taking action on your goals. However, it is essential to take action despite these fears. Remember that fear is often just a feeling and not a reflection of reality. If you wait until you feel confident to take action, you may never start. Instead, take small steps, and each step will build your confidence.
  5. Celebrate your progress Celebrating your progress can help you stay motivated and focused. When you achieve a small milestone or complete a step, take a moment to celebrate your progress. This will help you feel more positive about your journey and keep you moving forward.

In conclusion, taking action on your goals is essential for business success. Fear and lack of confidence can prevent business owners from taking the necessary steps to achieve their goals, leading to failure. However, by breaking down your goals into manageable steps, creating a plan of action, focusing on one goal at a time, taking action despite fear or lack of confidence, and celebrating your progress, you can overcome these obstacles and achieve your goals. Remember, success is not about being fearless, but rather, taking action despite your fears.

How to Support Your Working Single Mom Friend with Her Own Business

February 27, 2023 in Community News

Being a working single mother is no easy feat, especially when you are also an entrepreneur. Running a business requires a lot of time, effort, and energy, and when you add the responsibilities of parenting on top of that, it can be overwhelming. As a friend of a working single mother who has her own business, you can play a vital role in supporting her. Here are some ways you can be supportive:

  1. Offer your time

Single mothers often have a lot on their plate, and finding time to complete all the tasks they need to do can be challenging. Offering to help her out with her business or with household chores can make a big difference. You can offer to watch her children for a few hours or help her with tasks such as accounting or administrative work. This can help her focus on other essential tasks and take some of the load off.

  1. Listen to her

Being a single mother and running a business can be very stressful. Your friend may need someone to talk to about her challenges, and just listening to her can be a great source of support. Listen to her concerns and challenges without judgment. Give her your undivided attention, and let her know that you are there for her.

  1. Show empathy

Single mothers often face a lot of societal and economic challenges. Acknowledge the difficulties she faces and let her know that you support her. Try to understand her situation and show empathy. Being supportive and understanding of her situation can go a long way in helping her feel heard and validated.

  1. Celebrate her successes

When your friend achieves a milestone in her business or personal life, celebrate with her. Single mothers often don’t have someone to share their accomplishments with, so being a supportive friend who is genuinely happy for her can mean a lot. Celebrate her successes, big or small, and let her know that you are proud of her.

  1. Offer practical support

If you have specific skills or expertise that can help her business, offer to lend a hand. For example, if you are good at social media, you can offer to help her with her social media marketing. You can also offer to help her with other areas of her business, such as bookkeeping, website design, or content creation. Offering practical support can help her business grow and thrive.

  1. Be patient

Single mothers are often busy and may not be able to respond to your messages or calls immediately. Be patient and understanding of her situation. Understand that her priorities may be different from yours, and that her children may come first. Being patient and supportive can help her feel more relaxed and appreciated.

Overall, being a supportive friend to a working single mother who has her own business involves being present, listening, and offering practical help when you can. Remember that your support can make a significant difference in her life and help her achieve her goals. By being there for her, you can help her balance her responsibilities as a single mother and entrepreneur and help her create a fulfilling and successful life.

Tips for Work-Life Balance for Moms

February 22, 2023 in Community News

As a working mom myself, I understand firsthand how difficult it can be to balance the demands of a career and family life. There have been times when I’ve felt overwhelmed and like there’s just not enough time in the day to do everything I need to do. But over time, I’ve learned some strategies that have helped me make my daily life easier and less stressful.

One thing that has been particularly helpful for me is setting realistic goals. As someone who tends to be overly ambitious, it’s been a challenge to learn to prioritize and focus on what’s most important. But by creating a to-do list each day that includes both work-related tasks and family commitments, I’m able to stay on track and feel a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day.

Another thing that has been crucial for me is finding a routine that works for me and my family. With two young kids and a demanding job, it can be chaotic if we don’t have a schedule in place. By having set times for work, exercise, meal preparation, and quality time with my family, we’re able to maintain some semblance of order in our lives.

Learning to say no has also been a challenge for me, but it’s something I’ve had to do in order to avoid burnout. As someone who likes to please others, it’s been difficult to turn down requests for help or additional responsibilities. But by setting boundaries and prioritizing my own needs, I’ve been able to maintain a healthier balance.

Outsourcing has also been a game-changer for me. By hiring a cleaning service to help with household tasks and utilizing meal delivery services, I’m able to save time and energy that I can then devote to my family and career.

Finally, making time for self-care has been crucial for me in maintaining a healthy work-life balance. Whether it’s going for a run, reading a book, or having a night out with friends, I’ve learned that taking care of myself is essential for being able to give my best to my family and career.

While finding a work-life balance as a mom is never easy, these strategies have helped me navigate the challenges and find some semblance of balance. It’s important to remember that it’s okay to ask for help, set boundaries, and prioritize self-care in order to maintain your well-being.

The Phoenix Journey

February 22, 2023 in Charity, Community News, Life, Sponsored


Dominique Cousin

1 Peter 5:10 The God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm, and steadfast.

It all started with a symptom I could not ignore.

I received a diagnosis that no one wants to hear. Just like many who struggle with autoimmune diseases, my doctor was unable to give me a sure resolution and I didn’t have much hope as this was permanent.

My condition continued to get worse and after finding myself in a wheelchair and showing 30 out of 31 symptoms, I needed a change. So I researched. AND researched and researched. I found my answers in prayer and books written by medical professionals.

What I found was a lifestyle regimen with examples and proof of that works for most* autoimmune diagnoses. I followed the steps with intensity. I depended on my resources of the people I knew in the community for their services and encouragement. My journey is a journey for life but I wouldn’t trade it because I’m now running, jumping and maintaining a normal life. Without this regimen- not exactly sure where I would be.

It’s like a PHOENIX rising from the ashes And I want to share this JOURNEY with you!

Upcoming Events !

The Ascent

Date: April 1, 2023

Time: 8:00 AM- 12:00 PM

Address: Generation Park 250 Assay Street Houston, TX US 77044

The Ascent is a 5K + Fun Run/Roll/Push brought to you by The Phoenix Journey. 

The Phoenix Journey is a Non-Profit group determined to encourage, educate and support those effected with an autoimmune disease of any kind along with the friends and family.

If you or someone you know is affected by autoimmune disease, you know some days are better than others, and some are just bad.  But each person shows courage day by day making the decision to face the challenges of the ascent for that day.

The 5k will be a standard 5K race comprised of multiple laps through the beautiful Generation Park.  This will be a Chip Timed event and awards will be given to the Top 5 Male and Female Finishers

However, this is not like any fun run you have probably done before, because you (YES YOU!) set the finish line.  There will be finish lines every 100 yards and you get to choose which one you can Ascend to based on your journey that day.  If you can make the Ascent to show up and make it to the first 100 yards, you get to celebrate YOUR Ascent  If you can make the Ascent for the entire length, you get to celebrate YOUR Ascent. 

The important thing is to show the courage and determination needed as an effected person, a caregiver, a family member, or friend to make your ascent and be celebrated.

The time limit for the Fun Run will be 1 hour

Rise to Greatness: Embracing Challenges and Pursuing Excellence

February 21, 2023 in Brand Tips, Business, Life

Contentment is a state of satisfaction and happiness with what one has, and it can be a desirable trait for individuals in their personal lives. However, when it comes to business, contentment can have both advantages and disadvantages. In this blog post, we will explore the pros and cons of contentment in business.

Pros of Contentment in Business

  1. Increased productivity: Content employees tend to be more productive as they are not constantly seeking something better. They are satisfied with their current job and are therefore more likely to put in the effort to ensure its success.
  2. Lower employee turnover: When employees are content, they are less likely to leave the company. This reduces the cost and time associated with recruiting, hiring, and training new staff.
  3. Higher job satisfaction: When employees are content, they tend to have a higher level of job satisfaction. This can result in improved morale and motivation, leading to a positive workplace culture.
  4. Better customer service: Content employees are more likely to provide better customer service as they are happy with their job and feel valued by the company.

Cons of Contentment in Business

  1. Complacency: Contentment can lead to complacency, where employees become too comfortable in their roles and stop striving for improvement. This can lead to a lack of innovation and a decline in the company’s overall performance.
  2. Lack of ambition: Content employees may not be as ambitious as those who are always striving for more. This can lead to a lack of drive and a reluctance to take risks, which can hinder the growth of the business.
  3. Stagnation: Contentment can lead to a lack of growth and development within the company. Without a drive to innovate, the business may become stagnant and fail to adapt to changes in the market or industry.
  4. Missed opportunities: Contentment can lead to a reluctance to seize opportunities for growth or improvement, resulting in missed chances to expand the business or increase profitability.

In conclusion, contentment in business can have both advantages and disadvantages. While it can lead to increased productivity, higher job satisfaction, and lower employee turnover, it can also lead to complacency, lack of ambition, stagnation, and missed opportunities. To ensure a successful and thriving business, it is important to strike a balance between contentment and ambition, allowing for satisfaction and growth simultaneously.

Rise to the Challenge: How Overcoming Adversity Can Lead to Greatness

February 20, 2023 in Business, Professional

Effort in Business: Why Hard Work is Essential for Success

When it comes to running a successful business, there are many factors that come into play, such as having a solid business plan, effective marketing strategies, and a strong team. However, one of the most important components of success is often overlooked – effort.

Effort is the amount of energy and work that a person puts into achieving their goals. In business, effort is essential for several reasons, including building a strong work ethic, achieving goals, and overcoming obstacles.

Building a Strong Work Ethic

One of the primary benefits of putting in effort in business is that it helps build a strong work ethic. This means that you are willing to put in the time and effort to achieve your goals, even when faced with challenges or setbacks. A strong work ethic is a critical trait for success in business because it allows you to stay focused, disciplined, and motivated to work towards your goals, even when things get tough.

Achieving Goals

Another reason why effort is essential in business is that it helps you achieve your goals. When you put in the work and effort to develop your skills, create effective strategies, and build your brand, you are more likely to see positive results. Whether your goal is to increase revenue, expand your business, or build a strong customer base, putting in the effort is necessary to achieve success.

Overcoming Obstacles

No business is immune to challenges and setbacks, and it’s during these times that effort becomes even more critical. When faced with obstacles such as financial difficulties, marketing failures, or product setbacks, it’s easy to become discouraged and lose motivation. However, if you’ve built a strong work ethic and have been putting in the effort to achieve your goals, you’ll be better equipped to overcome these obstacles and find solutions to the problems at hand.

Tips for Putting in Effort in Business

If you’re looking to put in more effort in your business, there are several strategies that you can implement to help you achieve your goals. These include:

  1. Setting clear goals: Define what you want to achieve and break it down into smaller, achievable goals.
  2. Creating a plan: Develop a detailed plan that outlines the steps you need to take to achieve your goals.
  3. Staying focused: Eliminate distractions and stay focused on your goals.
  4. Managing your time: Make the most of your time by prioritizing tasks, delegating when necessary, and avoiding procrastination.
  5. Being consistent: Consistently putting in effort, even when faced with challenges or setbacks, is essential for long-term success.

In conclusion, effort is essential for success in business. By building a strong work ethic, achieving your goals, and overcoming obstacles, you can create a thriving business that will stand the test of time. Remember to set clear goals, create a plan, stay focused, manage your time, and be consistent in your efforts, and you’ll be on your way to achieving success in business.

Balancing Act: The Art of Harmonizing Business and Family Life

February 20, 2023 in Business, Life, Professional

Balancing business and family life can be a challenge for many entrepreneurs and business owners. Juggling the demands of running a successful business while also maintaining strong and healthy family relationships can feel overwhelming at times. However, with the right approach and mindset, it is possible to blend the two effectively and efficiently.

Here are some tips for creating a harmonious balance between your business and family life:

  1. Set clear boundaries and priorities As an entrepreneur, it’s easy to let work consume your entire life. However, it’s important to establish boundaries and prioritize your time effectively. For example, set specific work hours and stick to them, so that you can be fully present for your family during non-work hours. Similarly, make sure you schedule in quality family time, so that you can be fully present with your loved ones.
  2. Communicate effectively Open and honest communication is essential for maintaining healthy relationships both at home and in business. Make sure you communicate clearly with your family about your work commitments and schedule, and involve them in decision-making processes where possible. Similarly, communicate effectively with your business partners and colleagues to ensure everyone is on the same page and understands your priorities.
  3. Practice time management Time management is crucial for balancing business and family life. Use tools and strategies like to-do lists, prioritization, and scheduling to ensure you’re making the most of your time. Delegate tasks and responsibilities where possible, both in your business and personal life, so that you can focus on what’s most important.
  4. Be flexible In both business and family life, unexpected situations and emergencies can arise. Being flexible and adaptable is key to effectively managing these situations. Have contingency plans in place and be willing to adjust your schedule or priorities when necessary.
  5. Take care of yourself Maintaining a healthy work-life balance also requires taking care of your own physical and mental health. Make sure you’re getting enough sleep, exercise, and nutrition, and prioritize self-care activities like meditation, reading, or spending time with friends.

In summary, balancing business and family life is all about setting clear boundaries, communicating effectively, practicing time management, being flexible, and taking care of yourself. By following these tips, you can create a harmonious and fulfilling balance between your business and family life.

Rising Above: How to Overcome Obstacles and Achieve Your Dreams

February 20, 2023 in Brand Tips, Business, Life, Professional

Self-sabotage is a common phenomenon in which individuals engage in behavior that ultimately undermines their own success. It’s often thought of in the context of personal relationships or health, but it can also manifest in the world of business. In this blog post, we’ll explore what self-sabotage in business looks like, why it happens, and what you can do to overcome it.

What is Self-Sabotage in Business?

Self-sabotage in business can take many forms, including procrastination, indecision, self-doubt, and fear of success. Some common examples include:

  • Procrastinating on important tasks, such as writing a proposal or making a sales call, because of fear of failure or rejection.
  • Refusing to delegate tasks to others because of a belief that no one else can do the job as well as you can.
  • Undermining your own success by not celebrating wins or giving yourself credit for accomplishments.
  • Allowing negative self-talk to get in the way of making bold decisions or taking risks.

Why Does Self-Sabotage Happen?

Self-sabotage in business is often rooted in fear. Fear of failure, fear of success, and fear of the unknown can all cause individuals to engage in self-sabotaging behaviors. For example, if you have a fear of failure, you may procrastinate on important tasks or avoid taking risks because you’re afraid of the potential consequences. Similarly, if you have a fear of success, you may hold yourself back from achieving your full potential because of a belief that you don’t deserve success or that it will come at a cost.

In addition to fear, self-sabotage can also be driven by a lack of self-awareness. Many people engage in self-sabotaging behaviors without even realizing it. They may believe that they’re just being cautious or responsible, when in reality they’re holding themselves back from their full potential.

How to Overcome Self-Sabotage in Business

If you’re engaging in self-sabotaging behaviors in your business, the first step to overcoming them is to become aware of them. Take some time to reflect on your own behavior and thought patterns. Ask yourself if there are any patterns of behavior that are holding you back from achieving your goals.

Once you’ve identified your self-sabotaging behaviors, you can take steps to overcome them. Here are a few strategies to try:

  • Set clear goals: Having a clear idea of what you want to achieve can help you stay focused and motivated. Write down your goals and create a plan for achieving them.
  • Challenge your negative self-talk: When you catch yourself engaging in negative self-talk, challenge those thoughts. Ask yourself if they’re really true or if they’re just holding you back.
  • Take small steps: If you’re feeling overwhelmed or intimidated by a particular task, break it down into smaller steps. Taking small, manageable steps can help you build momentum and gain confidence.
  • Surround yourself with positive influences: Seek out people who will support and encourage you in your business endeavors. Avoid those who are negative or unsupportive.
  • Get outside help: Consider working with a coach or therapist who can help you identify and overcome your self-sabotaging behaviors.

In conclusion, self-sabotage in business is a common phenomenon that can hold individuals back from achieving their full potential. Understanding why it happens and how to overcome it is key to creating a successful business. By becoming aware of your own self-sabotaging behaviors and taking steps to overcome them, you can build a thriving business that reflects your true potential.

Collaborating for Success: The Power of Meaningful Partnerships in Business and Life

February 19, 2023 in Brand Tips, Business, Professional

In both business and life, forming partnerships can be an incredibly effective way to achieve common goals and accelerate growth. However, not all partnerships are created equal. To create truly meaningful and beneficial partnerships, there are a few key principles that should be kept in mind.

  1. Define your goals and values

Before you start seeking out potential partners, it’s important to define your goals and values. What are you looking to achieve? What do you stand for? By clarifying these things, you’ll be able to identify partners who share your vision and are aligned with your values.

  1. Look for complementary strengths

When forming a partnership, it’s important to look for people who have strengths and abilities that complement your own. This will enable you to work together more effectively and achieve more than you would on your own. For example, if you’re good at sales but struggle with product development, finding a partner who excels in that area can be a great way to grow your business.

  1. Be clear on roles and responsibilities

To avoid misunderstandings and conflicts, it’s important to be clear on each partner’s roles and responsibilities from the outset. This will help ensure that everyone is pulling in the same direction and that tasks are being completed in a timely and efficient manner.

  1. Communicate openly and regularly

Communication is key to any successful partnership. It’s important to communicate openly and regularly with your partner, sharing ideas, concerns, and feedback. This will help build trust and ensure that everyone is on the same page.

  1. Be willing to compromise

No partnership is without its challenges, and there will inevitably be times when you and your partner have different views or priorities. When this happens, it’s important to be willing to compromise and find a solution that works for both of you. This may require some give-and-take, but ultimately it will help build a stronger and more resilient partnership.

  1. Focus on mutual benefit

Finally, it’s important to focus on mutual benefit when forming a partnership. Both parties should be able to benefit from the partnership in some way, whether it’s through increased revenue, greater exposure, or access to new resources. By focusing on mutual benefit, you’ll be able to build a stronger, more collaborative partnership that will stand the test of time.

In conclusion, forming meaningful and beneficial partnerships in business and life requires a combination of clear communication, shared goals and values, complementary strengths, and a willingness to compromise. By following these principles, you’ll be able to build partnerships that are built on trust, mutual benefit, and a shared vision for the future.
