Thank you for taking your precious time to join me. Grab a cup of coffee (you've earned it and if you're ANYTHING like me, you've been working for 8 hours already today and still have another 8 to go!) and get ready to GROW!
I have been in operation as a top rated daycare/preschool/childcare professional for many years. I have started and restarted with NOTHING and grown my business in different cities and states. Each time I restarted I literally had a low to ZERO dollar ad budget.
Restarting in a new state was the biggest challenge I faced and it brought me to several truths that I may not have fully realized the importance of otherwise.
Like I mentioned before, I too am an owner/operator of a licensed home childcare business. I do it ALL myself. I wear ALL the hats...just like you. I have learned many lessons in my time and want to HELP providers just like you grow so LET'S GET DOWN TO BUSINESS!!

Over the coming weeks...I am going to CHANGE THE WAY YOU VIEW EACH DAY! I will be blogging about each one of these topics at the rate of one per week over the next several weeks. You can keep reading these posts at the rate of one per week, OR, register for my FREE One Hour
WEBINAR and I will cover all of them for your there in digestible, workable bit-sized pieces. Really...each ONE of these could take several weeks each to cover. Unfortunately, I only have time for one/week due to my jammed packed schedule as a fellow childcare owner/preschool teacher/
homeschool momma/ and blogger, that doesn't even include my guest blog spots! We are all in this together and it's my goal to elevate our profession, our professionals (yes, that includes YOU :)), and the amazing service we perform in the lives of little ones each and everyday.
It's my hope that the pages of this blog will inspire you, relax you, encourage you, reignite you, and help you remember why you entered this profession - the children.
