In the midst of a bad situation, we should always look for a silver lining. I know many of you have provided good ideas for how to use this time. We here at WA have an advantage though. We have a fantastic platform that keeps us busy in endless ways. Not so with many people out there now finding themselves at home with children. That in itself can be stressful. Ironically my daughter’s preschooler is taking classes online BUT his sisters in 2nd and 4th grade have yet to interact with

As many of you already know, I come and go from WA because I’m retired and let’s face it – I get sidetracked. Well, this week was no exception. This virus has really changed our lives. Many people who have never had the opportunity to telework are doing so now. Store parking lots are empty, schools are closed (much to the dismay of many parents) and restaurants are drive through or carry out only. However, hospitals can NOT close. Doctors, nurses and EMT personnel are se

Even though you are a member of WA does not mean that you’re used to working from home. Many of you still have 9-5 jobs until this WA gig can pay all the bills. Because of this virus, you might be working your 9-5 remotely. Now you’re home all day and that TV and/or couch looks pretty tempting. Oh, the refrigerator is calling. Maybe I should do a load of laundry. I can call a friend and we’ll just talk a minute. SO many distractions and no boss around the corner holding

I'm a visual person so this resonated with me. Perhaps you've seen it before. All I know is that I want to be a Unicorn. Aside from them being unique and cool, they never stop growing and learning. Plus the caption when I saw this said Horse but really, to me, it looks more like a Donkey aka well, you know...........just sayin'. LOL~Debbi

A friend of mine posted this picture on FB today. This is just one of Richard Branson’s quotes.Most people know who Richard Branson is but in case you do not, his full name is Sir Richard Charles Nicholas Branson. He’s from England and founder of Virgin Group Ltd which consists of many companies. What some do not know (and I find interesting) is that he was a school dropout yet at 16 yet started his first business venture. His second business venture (at age 19 mind you) was a

This showed up on my FB thread and I thought it was insightful. It made me think of all the resources that we’re given here at WA. Kyle, Carson and Jay do a GREAT job of not only keeping us abreast of new requirements but they continue to make the platform better. Our job is to take advantage of the resources provided. Just my thought..........................~Debbi

Happy New Year to all of you. I have vowed to make 2018 great in several areas of my life. I want to get down to my goal weight this year and it’s been FREEZING outside (although I am thankful that we do not have snow). SO, I jumped on my elliptical. Shoot me now, it is SOOOO boring but I forced myself to move until I was out of breath. I took a break and looked over at my bookshelf. My eyes fell onto an OLD and kind of yellowed copy of a book called “The Dragon Doesn’t

I found this article in the 7 Nov Business Insider. about Jeff Bezos (Amazon CEO) Since many of us are Amazon affiliates, I thought you might find it as interesting as I did. They claim he owns the Washington Post. I did NOT know that. They also say that he’s the richest man in the world. Can he really rival Bill Gates and Warren Buffett? Hmmmm. Either way, he IS, in fact, rich! So, his “secrets” to becoming rich and successful are still worth checking out right? J

As some of you know, I have a scrapbooking website. I know it’s a broad niche, but it’s hard (for me) to break down. One of the companies I love (and sell for to get a discount) is Close to My Heart. This year they asked us to read “The 5 Second Rule” by Mel Robbins. WOW. GREAT book!!! This book is fairly new. Copyright 2017. So you may not have heard of it. The 5 Second Rule can help with the following (which is a partial list) as taken from the book jacket: B
