On the Right Path

Life has a way of pointing us in different directions. Our job is to discern if the path being offered up to us is the right path or we need to shift our course. Over the years I’ve used my discernment muscle and been wrong. That is when I sit, reflect, and realize where the…

Remember to take the high road

I know. Honesty can feel harsh and people can be mean. No one is perfect and the internet is a place many feel they can vent and hide behind. But! When a customer shares negative feedback, complains, or leaves a less than stellar review remember to always take the high road – for your own…

My Greatest Supporter & Fan

Propel Businessworks wouldn’t be possible without your support, which I am enormously grateful for. You, your business, your referrals, and your trust allows Propel to continue making an impact. But, my greatest supporter and fan has, from day one, always been my husband Kevin. Today, May 21, 2021, we get to celebrate 16 years of…

Why I *Really* Escaped Traditional Social Medias

Since jumping ship from traditional social medias I’ve experienced a few things I actually anticipated, and others I didn’t. I expected to feel lighter and freer. I knew people would ask about how and why and probably say “but, aren’t you in marketing?” What I didn’t expect was how long it would take me to…

Have Tech, Will Travel

One of the incredible surprises I realized with having a business like Propel a few years into the journey was how this exciting adventure helping small businesses would afford me other exciting adventures to travel the country helping companies all over the U.S. Being a digital business means I can work from anywhere – truly…

The Great Text Dilemma

Whenever asked, one of the greatest business/entrepreneur tools I shout from the rooftops is the out-of-office responder for email. Not only does provide immediate info to those who email me, announcing my unavailability, for how long, and when I’ll return – it also saves my sanity by allowing my responsibilitarian brain to rest knowing my…

Finding My Inner Martha Stewart

Each year I take it upon myself to tackle at least one big project around our little homestead. Last year it was reorganizing and completely overhauling our garage, which took 10 whole weeks! But just like everyone else in the world, we tackled a ton of other home projects, too. Like selecting and planting bushes…

T-Sea Charters (.com) Launches! Pretty proud of this one…

When Kevin and I first married in May of 2005 I remember him leaving on Memorial Day (our first holiday as a married couple) to go fishing. I honestly had zero idea that would be the first of many days in our future that he would scoot off to the river without me. Over the…

My Entrepreversary

Each year I celebrate my divinely executed exit from corporate employment on March 31st and my step into business ownership on April 1st (no joke!). I call it my entrepreversary and last week I celebrated twelve years! Twelve years that I’ve been running my own show, managing my own schedule, serving some absolutely amazing businesses,…

Early Mornings Require Organization

For me, prepping for early mornings and full days requires organization and starting the night before:✔️to-do list organized✔️inbox organized✔️schedule organized✔️projects and team organized Hitting the ground running, as I’m doing a lot in this season, takes organization so I can get a quick workout in before the sun is up! BAM! 💪🏼💥 What tricks do…

Entrepreneurs Wear the All The Hats

Entrepreneurs often wear all the hats. From bookkeeping, admin tasks, team development, planning, project management, sales and marketing, to being their own IT department, every day can be different knowing you might have to switch hats mid-task to handle a more immediate issue. That’s me. That was this week… When I started Propel, I made…

“Open For Business”

Small businesses are my passion. I’ve been the daughter of a small business couple since 1990 and I’ve seen, supported, and worked in every aspect of the entreprenuer’s life since then, advocating for their success and survival. Small businesses have been challenged, detoured, and all-out stopped in the last year and it’s been sad to…

Making Time for Personal Priorities

As a business owner since 2009, I’ve found that many times over the years I’ve had to learn the value of taking time to invest in personal priorities. As a responsibilitarian, my clients and the workloads often even take precedence over my own self-care. But some weeks, months, and even years (Hello, 2020!) call for…

The Road Less Traveled

Truthfully, I miss my love affair with Portland. The small businesses, landmarks, cornerstones of commerce, parks, and other treasured places that provide comfort in knowing they have held history, value, purpose, and meaning in our town. For a few reasons I don’t commute as often as I used to and because of that I have…

Take Me To The River

#EntrepreneurLife is always interesting and this week has been nothing short of it. Ever had one of those weeks where everything seems to be stacking against you? Well, in those weeks I turn my focus upward and inward, get outside to marvel at nature, and try to rest my thoughts. Because days like the one…

Propel’s Office Evolution

Admittedly, I am drawn to offices. There’s something about being productive, working on your craft, and being good at what you do that calls to me. We are all given talents and skills which we can build and hone. And when we do, we find purpose and fulfillment putting our hands to that work. But…

Pioneer like Lewis & Clark

Lewis and Clark: visionaries, adventurers, pioneers. They were all-or-nothing discoverers. They were ‘go till we find it’, strong, fearless, and brave ‘until we can’t go any further’ types – & they made it. Be like them. Discover. Do the hard things. Keep going. You are strong, brave, and fearless. Never give up! #beapioneer #lewisandclark

Enduring Trials

It is not a requirement that one travel through trials to be appreciative of the gifts in their life, but it is more likely they will reach that conclusion if they have survived the fire. #appreciation #tbt
