Notes to Self

Everything I needed to know I learned from story books:

Men like long hair. Not only is it a great fashion accessory, but also useful for scaling edifices. Do not try on climbing wall at gym.

Household skills are worth $$. A domestic diva uses her skillbase to start a home based business. Martha Stewart really worked this one.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang:
A reliable, if somewhat older model, car that is well cared for is always there when you need it and is often coveted by others. ‘Nuff said.

Alice in Wonderland:
Yes, it’s a long, strange trip, but it’ll broaden your horizons and you’ll meet some interesting people along the way.

The Wizard of Oz:
It was a long, strange trip and thank heavens we’re home.

Mary Poppins:
Show up when needed. Deliver services in a professional manner with a little flash, so that client cannot discern how results were achieved. Refine exit strategy so that moment of departure coincides with client, being delighted with deliverables and begs you to stay on. At that moment, move on, as the positive word-of-mouth has already secured your future contracts.

You may be smaller than the rest, but you can still compete with the big dogs. Don’t give up.


  1. Love it!! It's like modern morals for Aesop's fables

  2. From Harold and the Purple Crayon, I learned to carry a purple crayon in case of emergencies.
