Reader Survery 2013 and a Giveaway


As I mentioned in this post, I totally worked my booty off during the month of December and the blog anniversary came and went.  In case you missed my 2013 Year in Review for both personal and business,  here’s a quick recap.  Well, it’s only two big subjects I mostly talked about.  I talked about my business growth for 2013, business goals in 2013 and 2014 and personal goals in 2013 and 2014.  All in one post in a pretty little graphic.  I encourage you to go check it out.  But what I really want to know is your opinion and the direction I should take this blog.

I want to know what you expect out of me, what you want to read, what you like and what you don’t like.  I want to see if I can give you more of what you crave for.

The survery is short, there’s only 5 questions.  To give you a little encouragement to fill out the survery, I’ll be giving away a $25 gift card to one lucky survery taker.  How awesome is that?!  I’m paying you to tell me your opinion.  All you need to do is leave your e-mail address on the survey to enter.  Oh, and just because your leaving your e-mail address doesn’t mean you have to be nice.  You can be critical to if you like.  I really want to know your truthful opinion.

So lets get to it and go fill out the survey right here!  The option to win the gift card will end on January 31, 2013.

So Long Thesis, Hello WordPress Canvas!

You guys, this has me busting at the seams and makes me want to skip all the items on my to-do list is working with a beautiful new theme for  It’s the most lovely wordpress theme to grace this planet.  Or I’d like to think so.  I quickly grabbed myself a copy of the theme before the prices goes up.  But I can’t wait to use this theme and put an egg in this “basket” (or cross it off my to-do list).  I stumbled upon this theme while researching copyright laws and social media icons.  I was reading an interesting article over at, and quickly realized that she has an amazing creative behind-the-scenes team and one of these guys was building a beautiful wordpress theme.  Guys, let me introduce you to WordPress Canvas.

When I found the theme, it wasn’t for sale yet so I contacted one of the developers (who’s name was listed on the bottom of wordpress canvas) and asked him how I could get my hands on this wonderful theme.  He said it wasn’t ready yet, but to give him a few days.  So I waited.  And he emailed me and told me it was done.  And then I waited some more, and I went to visit WordPress Canvas and fell more in love with it.

What I love about it is that I don’t have to be a CSS guru or HTML novice to customize this theme.  It’s packed full with the most trending web design now out there.  It’s design is rich and luxurious, so you don’t have to do much other then change a few colors.  It’s responsible, and there’s so many features built into it that make it easy to customize.  And it has a bunch of video tutorials.  I mean seriously, this theme is easy peasy!  You guys, this theme has won me over from Thesis.

You guys should watch this 10 minute video that gives you a glimpse of all its beautiful glory.  This video is what sold me on the theme.

After I purchased it, Chris congratulated me that I was the first buyer of the WordPress Canvas theme.  And let me tell you… it’s ah-mazing!  I can’t wait to launch my business growth with this theme.  I’m thinking of selling my creative talents right here on, all in one place.  What do you think?  I encourage you to go check it out and see for yourself at
