I am asking these questions because REAL TALK – this is how I’ve been feeling. Now hold on… don’t get me wrong… this has been a FIRE STARTER year in terms of new business and buzz BUT in between it all I’ve been feeling TIRED, swamped with work and not quite like the girl that I used to be.

I am BIG on being self motivated and productive, which is why my latest live call is all about getting recharged – resetting your web goals and springing into action!

As you can tell by all my work here on SistaSense I am pretty good at recharging business and getting back on track, so I would like to share some of my strategies with you on our latest call.

How to Recharge You & Reset Your Web Vision (listen to replay)

At the same time recharging the business is different than recharging the body. As a diabetic, I hate to admit this but a big part of me not feeling quite right is because my body is not functioning as well as it used to. Creating a Better Me is a BIG part of my agenda because to be quite honest with you I am tired of being tired and I want that 20 year old energy back!

I’ve been working on some SMART new things business and body wise within Arbonne, a wonderful company that is helping me get my body back on track and expand the business too!

If you are curious also join me at 6:30 EST for my first Discover Arbonne webinar (RSVP HERE). Still RSVP even if you missed the session and I will send you updates.

Whether you too are looking for ways to create a BETTER You or Expand your business this might be a good fit!

Don’t you agree it’s time to spring into action? Let’s do it together!

Set SMART Goals + Discover New Business Opportunities

I’ve always wanted to host a local workshop, but I’ve talked myself out of the idea on more than one occasion. This past weekend I made it happen! I hosted Fire Start Her Business workshop (replays here) and had an absolute wonderful time. At the heart of this workshop I shared 7 SMART ways to turn personal passions into profitable projects online, which inspired me to create the above video for you.

SMART is all about setting goals that are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time Based. I always have so many things that I have to do vs things that I want to do, but when you set SMART goals even with a CRAZY busy schedule you can do anything. Completing this workshop was truly a major accomplishment for me, but what about you? What goals are you pushing to accomplish right now? Take a minute and watch the above video. Lets talk more about setting SMART goals and how that can work for you.

Plus number two inside this video is all about me, you and new business opportunities. Last year on a cold winter morning, I was struggling with my dry skin peeling issues as per usual, in desperate need of a facial fix. As luck would have it that day I was invited to a facials party (first time ever). It was fate, seriously perfect timing as I was looking for a new skincare solution. I went and discovered Arbonne’s RE9 collection. It takes a lot to impress me, but I was sold on it immediately. I started using the RE9 facial cleanser and hydrating body lotion. I saw my glow come back again, so needless to say I was pleased with the results. Fast forward a few weeks back from today, I decided to try something new going from Arbonne customer to Arbonne consultant (here is my page).

Why Arbonne? I’ve got more than one reason actually. I absolutely love my business as a web designer and mentor to entrepreneurs, but I am honestly excited about trying something new and tapping into the profit potential of sharing everyday products that I use with my power circle! After several months of thinking about it and doing research I knew it was a great fit and the right time to start. Like me, this company is almost 35 years old (smile). They’ve been around for a long time. They’ve got a lot to offer beyond skincare products, including a Nutrition line that particularly interests me and my hubby (the fitness guru that he is). As a diabetic I am personally working on a healthier lifestyle and this is an extra push for me in the right direction. As an entrepreneur, I am excited about expanding my business as an Arbonne Consultant.

As you can tell with SistaSense, I have a personal passion for sharing the things I love with people around me. Plus keep in mind that out of necessity we are all buying skin care products anyway. Its just plain SMART to buy from your own shop with quality products that are good for you in and out. Not to mention the fact that I am looking forward to building my own team of entrepreneurs who like me enjoy using this product and want to share it with others. Between the products and the profit potential I am excited about this new business venture and seeing what happens next.

Today I hope that I can help you Fire Start Your Business, set at least one SMART goal and discover something new that you can try! Take a look at my Arbonne page. I’d love for you to try some of their products and tell me what you think. And while I haven’t started building my power team yet, if you’d like to be one of the first to join me on this journey let me know (smile).

We can set SMART goals and further discover the wonderful world of Arbonne together!

How to Make Your Website Pop: Essential Pictures, Programs and Plugins

sistasense-biztips03Most aspiring entrepreneurs know to go get a logo designed when they are ready to actualize the vision. Some take things a step further by getting professional glam shots and product photos taken to really give their website and branding a polished look. As you begin blogging, creating promotional banners, flyers, social profile graphics and digital content you will also need to invest in stock photos; royalty-free professional graphics that you can use on your website and in your marketing. For low cost, high quality images I use and recommend:

Examples of Some Stock Photos I Have Purchased

As a graphics designer I am always looking for stock photos for my personal projects and those of my web clients – for eBook Covers, Flyers, Banners, Websites, etc…. Here are some examples:

  • sistasense-biztips06
  • sistasense-biztips05
  • mag-img-01
  • sistasense-biztips
  • b2m-callus-ad
  • sistasense-lifehacks
  • woman-holidays


As a designer I often use the Adobe Photoshop Suite to edit images and create graphics. Adobe software programs can be expensive. As an alternative you can sign up for the Adobe Creative cloud to access their editing software online at a lower cost. and are two of my favorite free online editors; you can use these for most of your basic editing needs. For projects that require a more professional touch, review my design services over at

Beyond pictures and programs, eventually you will find yourself entering the wonderful world of WordPress Plugins; applications you can install on to your website to enhance or add additional features. To start with I recommend the All in One SEO Plugin for search engine optimization, Contact Form 7 for emails and Speak Pipe for Voice Messaging.

FYI* I am Dollar Photo Club Ambassador, so if you do choose to sign up through me I will make a small commission. I ONLY recommend those services that I use and absolutely love, so I hope you enjoy using DPC too. Let me know what you think.
