If you haven’t yet been connected to the gem that is Lara Casey… I’m encouraging you to now. This woman has changed my life… from her books to her posts to her heart and her message. She is the creator of the Powersheets Goal Planner as well and I could say so much more but…

Simplified Planners with an Online Calendar

I ended shooting a family session the other day to look down at my phone to see a voice text message waiting for me from one of my favorite people. She told me she’s been using her online calendar for a while and although she LOVED the Simplified Planner when she had it, she didn’t…

Hiatus Week One | Salt Air Entrepreneur

It’s the strangest thing to not pick up my phone and continually check in on my notifications and what my friends, colleagues and connections are doing…but it’s really amazing at the same time. Here’s what I’ve learned in one week of not opening up social media, AT ALL, for any reason. (And if you know…

My First Social Media Hiatus

You’re looking at a girl who has shown up for seven years and never taken a break from posting on social media. I have a lot of stuff archived so it may not seem so by the numbers…but for example, I took my Instagram recently from 6900 images to almost 1900. WOW. 6900 images, that’s…

You’ve heard me talk about them a time or two….right? 🙂 This year I had the HUGE honor of being one of the Powersheets girls for their 2018 photo shoot and it was absolutely so much fun and if you know me, you know I’m a cheerful colorful loving girl so it was a dream….

The Biggest & Weirdest Behind The Scenes YET | Bye 2017!

I’m not quite sure how I got to be so special.

What…

Off Season Step Away | Salt Air Entrepreneuer

Can we REALLY turn this off? Will power is tough for entrepreneurs. Let me tell you this annoying inner struggle I just went through… In September I said yesssss Amanda you are DOING THIS! In December, you’re taking two weeks off. You’ll check in occasionally for emails but heavy and intense WORK work (blogging, newsletters,…

Three Reasons the Powersheets are Golden

Today kicks off POWERSHEETS PREP WEEK! I couldn’t be more excited about this for all of the people who have the 2018 Powersheets in their hands and want to dive in but have been holding off for the right time to start. One thing that’s been HEAVILY on my mind lately is how we are…

A Simple Office | Salt Air Entrepreneur

What if you had one spot in your home to place your desk and office belongings…and you were sharing that space with a six year old girl? One of the things we were recently asked was how we have a simple but cheerful and effective office space to work in…and the best way we can…

The NEW Busy Week Survival | Salt Air Entrepreneur

Twice a year for about five or six years, I did the burn out dance. And it was tragic. I would really work myself into a frenzy, physically and emotionally depleted and EVERY single time I wondered… How did I get here? Then I wised up. I know how I got there. I put myself there by…
