I think a lot of people feel if they ask for help, it reflects poorly on them because they couldn't figure it out on their own, or do it by themselves, or have the means to a certain end. When is it okay to ask for #help? Always! Staying stuck does not feel good and struggling to find answers that you cannot find, or do things you cannot do, breeds the feeling that you are inferior or a failure. I'm hoping this year there is a #mindset shift that asking for help is actually a
I thought today I'd change things up a bit and instead of an intellectual post, I'd write an emotional one. I think most of us are feeling the stress around the world with the uncertainty, the constant change and lack of clarity on what is going to happen next. What will happen today even?

Today on Women's Entrepreneurship Day - November 19th, 2021 - we'd like to recognize the talented, smart, resilient and creative women in business that have paved the yellow brick road for female entrepreneurs everywhere.

I've seen many people get stuck in the progress of their life because habit has won out over the discomfort of something new. The worst part is complaining about the habit, yet continuing to do it, and letting you stop you from getting what you really want! It's been a tough Covid year for all of us, some more than others, and I challenge anyone reading this post to break out of their comfort zone and do 1 - just 1 - new thing starting tomorrow.

I've been asked many times where the name "Big Rose" came from ??? Well, it was earned from a conversation with my beautiful children. My son's name is Celtic in origin and means "Little Fire" and my daughter's name is Greek in origin and means "a gesture of peace".
