Are you a writer or just a blogger?

I Googled this question the other day after watching an old YouTube video by Ianthia Smith on this topic.

Body Image Issues Are Bad for Business

On September 8-10, 2019 I had the opportunity to attend Inspired Vacay, a retreat hosted by and for the members of the Female Entrepreneur Association.

How to Rebrand Your Blog in Style

Megan LaRussa Chenoweth and I

If you’re like me the new year has you in the mood for all new everything and you may be wondering if it’s time for you to rebrand your blog. I’ve honestly been wondering the same thing about See Jane Write.

For years, Megan has been my brand and business role model and she’s the prototype of how women can transition from lady blogger to boss lady.

So You Think You Can Coach?

I never set out to be a success coach for women who write and blog. I didn’t even know this was a thing.
