It’s that time of year again. As your yard is deciding whether or not to grow between sunny, warm days and the cold, snowy ones, you’re inside and getting itchy. Not the kind of itchy that comes with dry skin, but the kind of itchy that comes with cleaning… and being surrounded by too much stuff.

It’s time to bust that clutter.

I get it, we all get busy. Paper starts covering surfaces that it shouldn’t (read: kitchen table) and cups get left in the oddest of places (read: the bathroom cupboard). It’s time to take a few hours and go through those clothes. It’s time to refresh your world by deciding whether you really need three ladles, though you rarely have soups or sauces. It’s time to throw out expired medications and the thirty plastic cups you’ve collected throughout the year.

Here are links to help you cut the clutter:

And remember: If you don’t love something, don’t keep it. If it doesn’t bring you absolute joy, toss it, donate it, sale it, or gift it to someone else.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t apply to your bills, vitamins, or vegetables.

Good luck!

VA Training

VA Training

I’m super excited to share this with you!

After a while of stalking out Virtual Assisting and deciding if it’s what I wanted to do, I’ve finally decided on it.

And my decision is yes!


I wasn’t sure where to start with my business, so I looked at different training courses. Some of those courses are CRAZY EXPENSIVE.

Except for one: Gina Horkey’s 30 Days or Less to Virtual Assistant Success.

As of right now, there are three packages on her website. The first tier Starter Package is $39. The next tier, The Growth Package, is $69. The final tier, The Rockstar Package, is $129.

At the moment, she is trying to get version two of the course up.


The Starter Package includes: 30 self-paced email lessons, a built in follow-up to make sure you are on the right track, and the private facebook group.

The Growth  Package includes: Everything the Starter Package includes, enhanced training on Trello, Buffer, and the Google Tools Suite, and the video interview with Gina and her first VA client.

The Rockstar Package includes: Everything the Growth Package includes, an independent contractor agreement, “Hire Me” page video script and tutorial, and Beta Access to the exclusive VA matchmaking service.


I’m on lesson 5 so far and I love it. It covers what I needed to know and so much more!

I also started a Buffer account and a Trello Account. Trello is so much fun for anyone who loves to make lists. Buffer is great for scheduling your social media postings to be posted throughout the day.


I can’t wait to continue with the course! I’ll let you know how it goes.
