Resolutions of Time

Another year has come to a close, so it must be time to reminisce about the year we’ve left behind and look forward to the year ahead. It’s also when a lot of people begin to make plans to once again get their weight under control, eat better and exercise more… anything and everything to be a healthier person.

Not me. Read On For My 2016 Resolutions

Secrets of the Desert Nymph WINS Best Feature

This past weekend, I attended the Temecula Independent Film Festival in the Temecula Valley wine country, and I am honored to have received the Best Grape Dance Feature award for my feature film, Secrets of the Desert Nymph. The grape dance award was given to the best films from filmmakers who live in the Inland Empire (which includes Temecula, Murrita and Riverside areas). Read full Post

Baby Steps A’Plenty

If you’ve been following me on my various social media platforms over the past year, you’re aware that I’ve been slowly building my new business, Phoenix Moirai, as well as attempting to build my fan base, generating as much interest in my writing and other artistic projects as a possibly can. This means, I’ve been spending a lot of time (which more often than not has taken a small bite out of my time — and energy — needed to finish my next novel) in finding ways to network, getting my name out there and building a solid reputation that will bring in new business while keeping my current clients happy. I will admit, it’s been hard to keep the motivation levels high sometimes, especially when I lose a client (for one reason or another), when my efforts bear absolutely no fruit whatsoever, or I watch my bank account trickle away. There’s an occasional job here and a possible connection there that have so far been able to sustain me just enough, but none of them, no matter how appreciative I am for them or what might happen with them in the future, have yet to scream SUCCESS! Don’t Stop — There’s Plenty More

Teach a Man To Fish…

This blog post is actually a few days late — I wanted to post this on Monday — but I had to play major catch-up early this week and I had a long day of networking yesterday, so the post got relegated to the back-back burner. But now that I’ve got caught up on a few things, I finally have time to settle in and focus on this recap of my past week, and the information overload I experienced. Don’t Stop — There’s Plenty More

A New Venture, A New Step Forward

When my sister came out to help me at the bridal expo a couple of weekends ago, she asked (while helping to staple business cards to the back of the coupons I was going to distribute) what I was doing to market my business. Other than the expo and this blog, I was actually still feeling my way around the issue and looking into several possibilities — and relying on word-of-mouth through friends and family, which of course is only feasible for a limited amount of time. I knew I had to branch out and start considering new ways of generating interest in order to get my name out there and get work, but it was definitely slow going. Don’t Stop — There’s Plenty More
