If you’ve watched those “How Much Youtube Paid Me…” videos, then you know that most content creators don’t answer that question until the end of the video.

While I enjoy these types of videos, I find that those creators who talk more about their journey to monetization are actually more helpful to me. You learn about the challenges the creator faced and how they overcame those challenges to get to that first Google…


Is Vitaminwater worth the Hype?

I’ve been drinking Vitaminwater for a while. Sure I could just drink water. But water has no flavor, and I need just a bit of flavor.

Like a lot of flavored bottled waters, Vitaminwater has been the subject of a lot of talk, both good and bad. For me, they’re just a few reasons whey I”m choosing vitaminwater over water.

  1. Vitaminwater comes in a few different flavors. I’ve been drinking the lemonade flavor for a while. There’s only a hint of it. It’s not overpowering.
  2. It doesn’t have a lot of sugar. It probably could…

How to Get it Right in 2020

As someone who has worked out consistently for about thirty years, I can tell you that there is no one, simple, magic, or…


So yeah…every now and then, I engage in a bit of fast food eating. I sometimes even plan for it. When I do, I usually make sure that I’ve been making healthy choices prior to this indulgence, and I will do so afterwards.

We’re all living stressful lives. We’ve got lots of things going on and lots of responsibilities. We’re worried about COVID every time we leave the house.

Sometimes, we just want to be able to have someone else cook the food. We don’t want to have to clean up either. No dirty dishes. No range, counters, and sinks…

This is MomLife. When your daughter almost runs out of gas and you’re sorta stranded pretty much in the middle of nothing…well, all sorts of things start to happen.

My apologies to the nice AAA guy in this video.

Because I was on the phone with him as he was driving up and I was outside alone, I didn’t have on my face mask. Once he arrived, I showed him my ID from a distance, but then he was closer to my bag (with my face mask in it) than I was. So, I couldn’t get the face mask.

Because of COVID, a lot of the things we used to do in person, we now do through Zoom.

All of my evening organizational meetings now happen either through Zoom, WebEx, or GoTo Meeting. In addition, there are all of these new virtual learning events and relationship-building events that I’m being invited to.

These opportunities are great. But it can also be a lot!!

Some of my Zoom meetings last a really long time. Most of them start after work, usually around 6:30, but sometimes as late as 8:00 pm. …
