Getting Unplugged

Just over 2 weeks have passed since Scott Colby’s Unplugged Retreat in beautiful Estes Park, Colorado and believe it or not I am just plugging back in.

Three Awesome Time and Money Saving Tips

Two things we just can’t seem to get enough of these days are time and money. If you like finding the best deals and saving money like I do, check out these new apps.

I really wish I would have known about this first app a lot sooner.

Two weeks ago I was suffering from the worst migraine of my life and all I wanted to do was find relief. Unfortunately, Urgent Care couldn’t see me because there was a problem with my insurance card.
