Deanna found Dave Ramsey my chance.   Following his 7 Step Financial Peace program, she eliminated $50,000 of personal credit card debt and is now 100% debt free.  She also found peace, in another way.   After sharing her story with Dave Ramsey on stage, tears were streaming down his face.  Play the podcast above to hear the story!

The One Thing You Must Do to Get Out of Debt

The first step to getting out of debt is to figure out how much you owe. You can’t do that, unless you write it down. The same can be said for goals and groceries. A goal is just a dream until you write it down.

Have you ever been to the grocery store without a list?

Yea, we all know how that goes.

Write it down!

Peggy Vincent Explains What Aspiring Work-at-Home Moms Need to Know about Pricing, Promotion and the Loneliness Factor | Podcast #006

comfy-cozy-3Peggy Vincent is the innovator of the glow in the dark pillowcase.  She was a young, single professional when she launched her company, Comfy Cozy, Inc. in the mid-1990s.  Peggy shares how her products, company and expectations all changed with marriage and children.

Common Threads

Peggy and I first met around the year 2000.  We belonged to a small, online mastermind of work-at-home moms we called SuperWAHMz.   Lynn Korff, of Korff Ceramic Originals, hand-picked our group who provided support and camaraderie as we each grew our businesses.  Lynn also created the The Mom Pack.

If you are just starting out, I can not stress enough how important it is to find a tribe.  You need other work-at-home-moms, like you, to bounce ideas off.

Both Peggy and myself have backgrounds in merchandising and national sales, so we speak the same language, and sometimes finish each others’ sentences.    In the podcast, we offers tips for creative moms on how to launch a product and run a business from home with small children including proper pricing, promotion and dealing with the loneliness factor.  Plus, Peggy offers insight on how the work at home experience changes when the kids become teens.

Be Willing to Change Direction

Kandas:  Sum up your business in three sentences or less.

Peggy:   Comfy Cozy,inc creates whimsical and inspirational gifts featuring the “original” Glow in the Dark Pillowcases. We also offer Custom Screen Printing for businesses, schools and organizations. Our focus is creating fun and functional products that meet the needs of our customers.

Kandas: Why did you choose to start your business – do what you do?

Peggy:  Always had a goal to start my own company. Created first pillowcases and decided they were the product to form new company around.

Kandas:  Where do you find inspiration?

Peggy:  Originally from my nieces & nephews, other family members. Trends & personal interest took over when I started to market the product.

comfy-cozy-2Kandas:  What makes you different from other people in your industry?

Peggy:  Comfy Cozy,inc. is the only line of pillowcases with the type of “magically” transforming Glow in the Dark images. My line is also cross generational and is not just for kids.

Kandas:   Why should someone purchase from you instead of your competition?

Peggy:  Our print quality, dedication to detail and selection.

Kandas:  For whom are you thankful? Who do you appreciate?

Peggy:  My husband, children, parents and extended family.

Kandas: What are some of your favorite books?

Peggy:  Easier to give authors: JRR Tolkein, Katrina Kennison, Robert Ludlum to name a few. Genres: Irish history, espionage, autobiography & inspiration.

Kandas:   Define your style?

Peggy:  Home decor – leaning toward some version of country chic but you wouldn’t know that if you walked into my house;) personal – comfortable without looking dowdy!

Kandas:   Tell me about your typical day.

Peggy:  Up at 5:30 w/ kids. #2 out the door at 7. Coffee w/ husband til 8/9. In my office by 9. Work til 1. Have a part time job t/w/th so I’m out the door by 1:15. Home by 6:15. Dinner, finalize homework check, relax with kids for a bit before bed. Wait for Scott to get home, usually by 9/10 ok 11. Bed. With 4 of 5 trips outside with our adorable Beagle:)
How do you juggle work and family? Carefully. Some days are better than others. Primarily I only “work” when our children are in school. There are times when I work in the evenings but try to not go back and forth from office to “family” space. It’s difficult to shut down your business brain, shut the office door and not go back in, but it’s important to let your family know you can separate the two.

comfy-cozy-1Kandas:   Three tips you would like to give to people who are thinking about starting a business in your industry?

Peggy:  Comfy Cozy, inc. is not in just one specific industry so answering that question won’t be direct.

  1. What I would tell anyone is to research other products on the market, examine every aspect of product development that goes into pricing and to establish a retail price that the sell on the market. Many people just say “this will sell at ‘x’” then realize that they either can’t cover the cost or their profit margin is not enough to sustain the business.
  2. Be realistic about how much time you can dedicate to your business AND more importantly, what you will need to do if suddenly you need to dedicate more. Can you and your family support the changes and what will the effect be.
  3.  Be willing to change direction. I realize that I should have made some changes to my product line, marketing strategy and business plan several years ago.

Kandas:   How have you grown as a person since starting your company?

Peggy:  I’ve learned that I did NOT know everything about running a business, should have minored in business and that I’m not as organized as I thought I was. I also started this company before I was married with kids. I would never have guessed that the professional, aggressive and all work/no play me would prefer building blocks and playing in the mud! I’d call that “personal” growth that required an acceptance that my “professional” growth would take a back seat for a while.

Kandas:   Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Peggy:   More productive on a day to day basis since our boys will both be in college – ACK! No longer selling pillowcases but doing more custom printing without carrying an inventory. Possibly be out of this business completely. Be able to call myself an author and have written a book or 2.

Kandas:   What else would you like to add?

Peggy:   At this time I am assessing where I am, my business plan and if this is what i want to do anymore. The “thrill” is leaving and determining what that means and where the road will take me is a huge door to open, walk over the thresh hold and shut the door with a feeling of satisfaction, accomplishment but eyes focused on the future and NOT looking back.

Wrap Up

Your definition of success is your own and you cannot let anyone else define it for you.   Businesses, like children, grow and evolve.  Sometimes you need to coddle the baby and sometimes you need to stand back and watch it play.

Cars and Cards are a Winning Combination for Ben Beeler | Podcast 005

“Time kills deals.” – Ben Beeler

1382167_10201453391594278_287448876_n

Ben Beeler

Listen in as Ben Beeler, of Beeler Motorsports, takes us on the race track of his life, sharing his passion for motor racing, as well as, some unforeseen pit stops along the way. Find out how one greeting card changed his life, and meet the pit crew that kept him on track.

The founder of SendOutCards, Kody Bateman (aka Kody B.) often asserts that “you can be from Yale, or you can be from jail” and find success in network marketing.  Ben shares the choices he made that landed him in federal prison.  His powerful story is one of redemption and gratitude.

From Checkered Past to Checkered Flags

Kandas:  Sum up your business in three sentences or less.

Ben:  Beeler Motorsports is a full service high performance and racing shop, there is nothing we can’t or won’t do! Beeler Motorsports is also a auto dealership that sells used cars. We also can locate you specific vehicle of your dreams. there is no car that we cannot get! Soc Nation is our race team, which we use to spread our SendOutCards business to racers, race fans, tracks and marketing partners.

Kandas:  Why did you chose to start your business?

Ben:  I chose to start my auto dealership after working at car dealerships for over 10 years and only getting 30% of the money I made them. I chose to use SendOutCards as a business during the Detroit Treat’em Right Seminar in 2012 while listening to Kody B. speak.

2013-06-02 16.27.21

Kandas, Ben & Becky

Kandas:  Where do you find inspiration?

Ben:  My inspiration all comes from my heart. I’m doing the things I LOVE to do… I don’t know how else to really put it in words.

Kandas:  What makes you different from other people in your industry?

Ben:  I’m different from others in my industry due to my background and what I’ve went through in my life. In the past, I made lots of bad decisions that led me down a path that didn’t have good results. I’ve learned “the hard way” and have proved nothing can stop me when I want something. I know what it’s like to hurt in every area of your life all at the same time and that helps me relate to everyone no matter what their circumstances. I stand behind my work and I’m loyal.

Ben:  Juggling work and family is hard because I work so much, but it helps that my whole family and close friends are all involved with SendOutCards, and supporters and fans of our race team.   This involves everybody and considered family time, to me at least.  My wife might only agree with that sometimes.

Team SOC Nation

Kandas:   Share three tips you would give to people who are considering starting a business in your industry.

Ben:   #1 – start and NEVER quit. we all have slow and down times…. just don’t ever quit! #2 – “Time Kills Deals” is my motto…. I believe this statement to be true 99% of the time in ALL areas of life… #3 – go back to step # 1 and repeat.

Kandas:   How have you grown as a person since starting your company?

Ben:   Since starting my company, I’ve grown tremendously… personally, which has transpired more success into my businesses.

SOC Nation Car

SOC Nation Car

Kandas:  Who do you appreciate?

Ben:  I’m thankful for God most. Then my parents and sisters. They stuck by me when they probably shouldn’t have… and without them I would of never made it through the things I did. I’m also very thankful for my wife and kids. I’m very blessed to have a “HOT” wife that is fun and also keeps me in line. My kids are just amazing. I also appreciate Kody B. soooo much. He has helped me and had my back since the day we met. He also has helped give us a system to change this world, and I really love seeing this happen from the front row. I appreciate my racing team and marketing partners. Racing is a full time job in itself if you want to be successful.

Grateful Thoughts

Your actions, however small, can make a giant ripple in the pond of life. You might never know what effect your actions have … just keep tossing those pebbles of kindness and gratitude into your pond and watch your ripples grow.

980168_10200452837460916_1788117915_o

Kandas and Jay McHugh

I often say that gratitude is like manure… it’s no use unless you spread it around. Spread it around enough and sow seeds of generosity and kindness, then a bountiful harvest will soon be yours for the reaping.

I know no one who spreads gratitude better than Jay McHugh.

Jay owns one of the largest Re/Max Real Estate brokerages in the world. With 15 offices in the greater Boston area, Jay maintains very low agent turn over.  He has a bounty of referral partners.  Satisfied clients continue to refer business years after their own home purchase.  Gratitude is that ONE difference between average and extraordinary success in Real Estate.

Jay attributes much of his success to appreciation marketing. Today, he is going to share his formula for growing a real estate brokerage with gratitude and TOMATO (Top of Mind Awareness Through Others).

996079_10152156394882053_705109415_n

Jay McHugh and Stacey Alcorn

My biggest take away from this conversation is to keep checking my rear view mirror. Touch base with your current customers often. Make sure they know how much you appreciate them! When you are out there looking for new business, it’s a happy client that will point you in the right direction.

003 Great Barrier Reef Fishing with Tara Thompson

“I will more than likely never be one of the boys and I’m completely OK with that. I’ve dealt with guys being threatened by me my whole life.   It takes a strong secure Man to be able to accept a woman doing the same job.” – Tara Thompson

Breaking Barriers

Tara Thompson is a maiden of the sea.  She holds her mariner captains license and three SCUBA instructor trainer certifications.  She is currently pursuing her passion as a deckhand on a recreational charter fishing vessel in Cairns Australia. In fact, she is the only female to ever complete 7 seasons of Giant Black Marlin fishing on the Great Barrier Reef.  Tara Thompson is truly swimming in the depths of a male dominated field.

Speaking of Fish:

989KANDAS:  Why do you do what you do??

TARA: I love the ocean and everything about it. Even at 3 yrs. old I knew I wanted to work on/in the water.

I’ve spent my whole life in, on, or under the ocean.

KANDAS:  Where do you find inspiration?

TARA: Always having men 2nd guessing my abilities and having them treat me as a novelty makes me strive harder.

KANDAS:  What makes you different?

TARA:  One of a handful of women who actually work alongside men in the fishing industry.

KANDAS:  For whom are you thankful?

TARA:  My father and grandfather both avid fishermen.

My grandfather was a commercial tuna/lobster fisherman out of Boston

KANDAS:  What are some of your favorite books?

TARA:  Tao of Pooh, Tales of Fishes by Zane Grey, Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway (I know very cliché.)

IMG_2102

TARA:  Depends on what I’m doing season wise.

Light tackle days start around 5am and we fish for small stuff…. GT’s, little black marlin, reef fish

Long Lining is a whole completely different ball game.  It’s commercial fishing with little sleep.

Heavy tackle is full on. Your clients are usually living onboard, so you’re up till they go to sleep and your day starts before they wake up.

Fishing is a multi-facet job… the saying is “when it comes to fishing 10% is catching a fish the other 90% is about entertaining the clients.”

KANDAS:  What advise can you offer to women considering a sport fishing career?

TARA:  I would love to see more women actually out there working the decks. A lot of people (men) think what I do is about physical strength and yes that does play apart. But finesse and mental strength is involved as well.

Women within the “fishing Industry” are usually portrayed as Barbie dolls… Meaning they are there to wear bikinis, fetch beers, and make their rich boyfriends/husbands look good.

Only recently have I come across a few women who are chasing world records that are there solely to fish. More often than not it’s a lot of “look at me’s.”

If a female were to ask who to get into this business I would tell her to always be true to herself, if she wants to be taken seriously find a good Captain, learns as much as she can and quickly grow a thick skin.

KANDAS:  How have grown as a person since you started this journey?

TARA:  How I’ve grown in this business is I’ve finally (only recently) stopped 2nd guessing myself and my abilities. I no longer care what “the boy’s” think and I do realize that this is one of the last truly good ole boys clubs.

IMG_2129I will more than likely never be one of the boys and I’m completely OK with that. I’ve dealt with guys being threatened by me my whole life.   It takes a strong secure Man to be able to accept a woman doing the same job.

KANDAS:  Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

TARA:  Hopefully still doing what I do, although with a bit more time driving the boat.

KANDAS:  What else would you like to add?

YOU: Thank you and keep our oceans clean!!!!

Foraging Wild Edible Plants with Dr. Mark Vorderbruggen 002 V029

“The human mind is designed to be stimulated by touch, smell, taste, feel. All these sort of things that you don’t get sitting on a couch.” – Dr. Mark “Merriweather” Vorderbruggen

Tips for Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse

Dr. Mark Vorderbruggen foraging a wild edible plant.  I ate it.  It tasted like lemon.

Dr. Mark Vorderbruggen foraging a wild edible plant. I ate it. It tasted like lemon.

Just Kidding . . . Not Really.

Recently I met up with Dr. Mark Vorderbruggen at Spring Creek Greenway Nature Center in Spring, Texas for an episode of my Coffee & Cards Conversations video series. Our converstation ran a little long for the video. The info is just too good not to share so we decided to turn the long version into podcast.

Dr. Vorderbruggen, also known as Merriweather, is a research a chemist by profession and wild edible & medicinal plant teacher, outdoorsman, and family man by preference. Originally from the north, he now lives in the greather Houston Texas are with his family. He enjoys permaculture; backpacking; kayaking; car camping with the family; fishing; suburban farming; conservation; Renaissance festivals and is, in his own words, a rabid maker of stuff.

Merriweather offers Wild Edible and Medicinal Plan workshops monthly at the Houston Arboretum and occasionally at Spring Creek Greenway Nature Center.  Merriweather’s next Wild Edible Workshop at the Houston Arboretum is January 19, 2014.  Visit ForagingTexas.com for a complete list of classes, foraging resources and a searchable database of over 150 Texas edible plants.

Be sure to watch episode 29 (below) of Coffee & Cards Conversations for additional content plus Merriweather’s take on the benefits of foraging.

 

Coffee & Cards Video 029 Transcription (verbatim):

Kandas:   Kandas Rodarte of GratitudeGeek.info sitting here with Dr. Mark “Merriweather” Vorderbruggen. He is a caveman who can eat off the land and he’s going to teach us a little bit how he does that.

So tell me about foraging, what is it?

Merriweather: Foraging, this is simply like you said, eating off the land. Eating the foods from the plants around us that have not been domesticated, have not been planted as a food source but for thousands and thousands of years they were a food source for humans. This includes mainly wild plants but also some landscaping plants.

Dr. Mark VorderbruggenKandas: Landscaping plants. So how did you learn about foraging?

Merriweather: Through my parents. Both of them were children of the Great Depression, growing up in a small dairy farm up in Central Minnesota, and at that time there was no money for anyone. And why would the family has got buy when there was wild animals around them? My parents continued to be forages and we grew up and continue to forage around us.

Kandas: So what drives you to teach other people about foraging and wild edible plants?

Merriweather: There’s a world around us that people have forgotten and I love reintroducing that to them. There are not many places left to explore for just your average Joe to go. I mean, we can’t go to the moon. So by showing them the food around them it’s a new world that they didn’t know is around them.

Kandas: There’s no food on the moon.

Merriweather: Jeez.

Kandas: Okay, so tell me some benefits of foraging. Why should we do it?

Merriweather: Well, obviously, there’s nutritional benefit but there’s a lot of other things that people don’t realize. There’s been a lot of studies that show if you get kids out in the woods, out in the wild, off they even actually in the woods for at least a half hour a week, their attention deficit disorder pretty much disappears. The human mind is designed to be stimulated by touch, smell, taste, feel. All these sort of things that you don’t get sitting on a couch. On the other hand, there’s one other thing for older people. They find that walking on uneven ground a lot helps stave off dementia because the mind is still in… it’s like mental exercises.

Kandas: Wow!

Merriweather: Those are the two.

Kandas: Those are the two. While you’re out foraging, you’re doing those two things. It’s very groovy. Okay. So if we wanted to have wild edible plants in our own backyard, how would we do that?

Merriweather: This is ways to lure a bird into your backyard. What I did with mine, I just have a basic suburban backyard and I tore up parts of the earth. I had piles of dirt. Put some branches for birds to perch and put a bird bath. No bird feeders. If you put bird feeders the only seeds you’re going to get are what the birds ate from the bird feeder. So the birds will be eating all the wild plants and they’ll come and they’ll deposit the seeds and your piles of dirt as they perch on that stick. And then you just identify as they come up which weeds are edible and which aren’t. The ones that are edible you keep. The ones that aren’t you get rid of.

Merriweather's Guide to Wild EdiblesKandas: If a person wanted to learn more, do you have some books that you recommend?

Merriweather: Certainly. First obviously is the Peterson’s Guide to Edible Wild Plants (affiliate link). This is probably the most comprehensive plant book out there of wild edible plants. However, it’s not really designed to find the plants. It’s designed that once you find the plant and identify the plant, you look up here and actually see if it’s edible or not.

Kandas: Okay, so you can’t identify. You can only find out if it’s edible.

Merriweather: Correct.

Kandas: Okay.

Merriweather: Now for actually identifying edible plants Samuel Thayer is my favorite author. He has two books: The Nature’s Garden and The Forager’s Harvest. In his book, he actually has multiple pictures of each plant, the leaf, the flower, the bark, the whatever and at different times of the year so you could really get an idea of what it looks like so you can hunt it down and find it.

Kandas: Gee, what about you? Do you have a resource that you offer?

Merriweather: I have… yes, I have a website with over a hundred and fifty, maybe a hundred and sixty different wild edible plants in Texas on there. This website is www.foragingtexas.com.

Kandas: And are they Houston area plants or are they…?

[Crosstalk 03:49]

Merriweather: I try and cover all Texas. I’m mainly located in the Houston area but the plants I try and cover all the different edible plants from East Texas all the way up to West Texas.

Kandas: And if people wanted to learn more from you, how would they do that?

Merriweather: I offer monthly classes down at the Houston Arboretum. That’s the park next to Memorial Park downtown Houston. The next one there is January 19th. It’s actually a fund raiser for the Houston Arboretum so you do have to register through their website and they do charge a fee for it but I teach there once a month. I also do private classes and other classes all over Texas.

Kandas: So your next class at the Arboretum is the 19th?

Merriweather: The next one at the Arboretum is the 19.

Kandas: January 19.

Merriweather: Yes.

Kandas: And if you could recommend just one plant, one edible plant indigenous to Texas to grow in your own backyard what would it be?

Merriweather: Yaupon holly.

Kandas: Yaupon Holly.

Merriweather: The reason being Yaupon Holly is the only naturally occurring source of caffeine that grows in Texas and it’s available all year. It has all the benefits of green tea so it has all the antioxidants and all the caffeine and it taste wonderful.

Kandas: And so if there’s ever a zombie apocalypse and we run out of coffee from the grocery store, we will continue to fill the feed our caffeine addiction.

Merriweather: Yes.

Kandas: I love it. Yaupon Holly. If you’re afraid of the zombies, plant some Yaupon holly and you’ll never have to worry about caffeine ever.

Merriweather: And you’ll never have to sleep.

Kandas: Well, this has been great. Thank you very much.

Merriweather: My pleasure.

Kandas: I’m going to post some links to your website in a [indiscernible 05:14]. I may even put link on the page. I don’t know. Whatever he does. He’s the magic guy, the magic guy behind the camera. He makes a lot happen.

Merriweather: Hey, magic guy!

Kandas: Thank you so much.

Merriweather: I like his magic hat.

Kandas: Yes, such a very groovy hat he’s wearing today. So be sure to visit my website gratitudegeek.info and we’ll see you next time on coffee and cards conversation.

001 New Year’s Resolutions Are a Very Bad Idea

Happy New Year’s! 2014 will be YOUR BEST YEAR yet!

Susie Glennan, Owner of The Busy Woman, Inc.

Susie Glennan, Owner of The Busy Woman

My guest today is Susie Glennan of The Busy Woman. Susie has been an entrepreneur since she was 13 years old and she started her own babysitting service. She is the owner of The Busy Woman – offering downloadable daily planner pages plus encouragement, organization and time management tips in her busy woman blog

Susie enjoys writing, public speaking, plunking on her guitar, and traveling…. her wish for you today is to learn to set “realistic” goals that are obtainable, let go of guilt associated with not obtaining your goals, allow yourself time to reassess your goals, and find someone to help hold you accountable.

Keys to Goal Setting:

  • Don’t be unrealistic.
  • Set obtainable goals.
  • Allow yourself to reassess.
  • Find someone to help hold you accountable.

Setting a date to start a goal is very helpful emotionally. It gives you a starting point. The issue is with the ending point

Many people hear the word “goal” and want to run!

Goals are just that, a goal. If you’re watching a football game, you want the ball to make it through the goal. Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn’t. When it doesn’t, is the game over? NO! They try again. There’s a specific time limit for both teams to make as many goals as they can before the game ends. The key is that they have a playbook. In your case, this would be a “plan of action.” Before each game and throughout season practice, they go over the playbook testing the different plays. They assess which ones work best and devise their plan of action.

They have a playbook with all of their plans. They are constantly adding to it, then assessing which ones worked or not.

Your goals should be the same way. When there is a project you want or need to get done, you should set up a plan of action. This guides you through the project until completion. The end result is that your goal is met.

Susie and I also chat about the book Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus, Toastmasters, masterminds and accountability partnerships.  It’s good stuff.

Read Susie’s article about breaking large projects into small tasks.

Read Kandas’ article about reinventing yourself.
