Finding Your Tribe- Part 2

HAPPY FRIDAY!!! Friends.  We all need them.  We love them.  Sometimes they drive us crazy.  But, for better or worse, they are an essential part of our lives, not only when we’re young, but even more so as adults.  In the last post in this series, I spoke…

Restaurant Tipping Etiquette: It’s Not What You Think

People often have very stringent rules about how they tip in restaurants, and I am one of them.  Growing up in the restaurant business, I know that servers depend on tips.  It’s not just supplemental income, it IS their income.  However, like any job, one has to earn…

Side Hustles That Earn $200+/Week

Good Friday

This won’t be much of a post today, other than to say that I’m spending the remembering the Ultimate Sacrifice of Christ on the Cross.  I encourage you all to think and pray about what this means for you today. Wishing you all a blessed Good…
