Self Employed and Unplugged: A Story of Survival

This spring, over Easter weekend actually, my love and I took off for a few days in sunny Florida…which was heavenly, especially if you know what the weather has been like in New England this spring! Neither one of us had our girls for the weekend, and after the last 12 months, we both needed…

What I’m doing (and not doing) in 2019

2018 Recap 2018…that was SO last year. I mean, it was a year, for sure. There were some highs (I found my incredible business tribe). And some lows (ummm, cancer). And as always, lots of lessons along the way. The good thing about lessons??? They kickstart growth. So, as tough as 2018 was, I’m grateful…

Commitment. It’s THE word right now.

By Maura Webster | Jan 16, 2019 | 0 Comments

New Year’s resolutions are all the rage…at least for a few more days.

fair questions to give your marketing direction

Today, my girls and I met up with Darren and his daughters (and his oldest’s +1!) at the Deerfield Fair in Deerfield, NH. We were looking for something to do that was the quintessential “fall in New England” activity, but didn’t involve hours of baking as the follow up! So an agricultural fair beat out…

We're All a Badass

What?!?! Seriously, who do you think you are? How many times have you asked yourself this question? My guess is at least a hundred if you’ve asked it once… am I right? The other day, I got an email from a friend and colleague in my business group who I saw last week at our…

What Marketing Fear has Your Head in the Sand

A while back, I took the girls for their physicals and flu shots. Always a fun day on the parent calendar! In coaching our youngest, Emma, through her fear and panic over the shot, I was reminded of a sign I had received. It was during lunch on the day of our first webinar (almost…
