Hey. It happens.

So, the funny thing is, I teach people to find what their brand is and stick with it.

  • What do people appreciate the most about you?
  • What are your strengths?
  • What are you most comfortable doing/teaching/sharing?
  • What makes you happy?

And then I go and spoil it all by saying something stupid like … Oh, wait. Sorry. Sinatra in my head. [Note to self: Take the fedora off the shelf.] Ahem. What I was saying was, I sort of took my own advice … and tossed it aside. But like a well-tossed … read the rest. . .

My One Word for 2018

by Molly Jo Realy @RealMojo68

Hurricane.

There. I said it.

I’ve known for a few months this would be my one word for 2018. But before y’all think I’ve gone crazy [too late!], let me explain the beauty of this word and why it means so much to me.

Frankly, My Dear . . . : One Word: Hurricane

NOLA, my rough-draft novel, is set in post-Katrina New Orleans. I was fortunate to speak with several survivors and I also researched a lot about hurricanes and their aftermath. It is as much a part of New Orleans, and my … read the rest. . .

Oops. We did it again. We overshared. Coulda been a status update where delete would have been the better option. Coulda been a tweet from a, uh, unsavory source. Coulda been one or two or ten million things that we prob’ly obviously should not have put out there.

Can I just say, we’ve all been there, done that.

Trust me.

Depending on what you’ve done, you may have to do some damage repair. But for the most part, you can recover.
