My January and February 2016 Income Reports Kicking Butt and Taking Names

FD - Jan And Feb - Pic

You may have noticed I’ve been rather ghostly lately. Please rest assured I’m okay. I suffered a few personal setbacks last month. Believe it or not, they actually worked to sharpen my focus and keep me on track toward my financial goals. Doors opened up for me that wouldn’t have otherwise done so. Some might call it luck. I choose to believe that I’ve learned enough in my journey thus far to have brought about the best possible results I could have given that situation.

Just like in my last income report, I’m happy with my results. I’ll break them down for you for each month. Then, I’ll end with February’s numbers and my hopes as I move onward into March. more My January and February 2016 Income Reports Kicking Butt and Taking Names

The Cancer Week


I’ve been away since the start of 2016 because I’ve suffered a few health setbacks, and also because I’ve been pretty busy working on my new ebook.

A few thoughts brought me back today. One of which was the death of my father-in-law. He was 54 when he passed shortly after undergoing heart surgery on December 20, 2009. Why the sudden need to remember him? I’m not exactly sure. For one thing, my ex-husband began staying with me a week-or-so ago. Quite naturally, we began talking all about his dad and what I went through in the process of taking care of the man.

I loved him as if he were my own father. I felt for this man more than I felt for my biological family. For seven years I took care of him. Now, I find myself in the strange position of missing him. more “The Cancer Week”

Christmas and Forward


There’s so much to celebrate and be grateful for this Christmas. I may not be rich in material things, but I have a firm sense of direction, one I haven’t had since I was a student at Texas A&M.

Knowing where I’m going means more to me than anything I could ever hope to buy. Thanks to Gina Horkey, I have a plan for my life and for expanding my business. more “Christmas and Forward”
