"My meetings revolutionized my business because I allowed myself the time, under the guidance of Lightbox SF, to ask myself some really hard questions."

“They helped me so much when it came to pushing my ideas to a new level. They always came with examples to look at and people to talk to and really pushed me out of my comfort zone so I could do more and more. I highly recommend them!!!”

"I would recommend Genevieve for overall plan development and artist marketing to anyone that has a creative idea, the mind of an artist and loves the web.”

"They are always there for me with words of wisdom when I'm feeling a little lost or need help with the next step in my jewelry making company. They have been a huge help in my business!!"

Happy Valentine's Day - Show Yourself You Care

image by honeytreeI had planned to put together a post of creative crushes for this Valentine's Day, but as Shelly mentioned last week was a bit of a doozy and then I came down with an icky bug yesterday and decided that a little self-love was needed instead.

As creative entrepreneurs it's hard not to be our own harshest critics, it's hard not push and push, it's hard not to expect more, but sometimes we also need to give ourselves a break. So yesterday I allowed myself to ignore email for almost the entire day and watch Netflix for hours on end. I felt a little guilty about it, but I told myself pushing to get work done would only make me feel worse and may cause more days of not much getting done.

I awoke this morning, not feeling 100%, but feeling much, much better. However, I'm still not going to push myself. I'm going to focus on the things done that need doing and let the rest wait for another day or another week, knowing it really won't make any difference in the long run.

So this Valentine's Day I urge you to take the time to show yourself a little love. Treat yourself to flowers, some chocolate, or an uninterrupted bubble bath. Then remember all the amazing things you've accomplished and give yourself a much deserved pat on the back. Afterall this relationship is forever.

Putting the creativity back into Valentine's Day

February 14th doesn't have to be that day everyone shuns because of its tacky commercialism. Who doesn't want a special day to remind them of their loved one, an excuse to make cupcakes, buy cute cards and spread extra kisses? Instead of giving Feb 14th the cold shoulder, why don't you purchase something cute and handmade or by all means do something creative or silly. For some reason I just love Valentine's Day decor and even if its a year that it is just my cat and I, I still decorate and stuff copious amounts of homemade mini cupcakes in my mouth. No cupcakes for Sailor cat but he does get buckets of kisses!
