Why Simplicity Is The Key To Building Your Business Empire
October 12, 2018
Fall is upon us. And for nature, this transition seems effortless. For us, it can easily feel like a mad dash of insanity as we try to do more, be more, and live up to the cultural pressures that the Fall and all of its holidays can create. Though we may feel the pressure of “more” let’s reframe the idea of “more” and take a note from nature’s playbook. Instead of adding “more,” nature adds depth to all that she does and discards what isn’t working for her in an unapologetic, effortless way. Nature simplifies with no attachments, strings, or “I’m sorry.” That’s our goal EmpiHER® Magazine’s print and digital readers in this October issue ().

If it isn’t serving you now, then simply let it go.Simplifying is about refining what is the best version,...

You see, no matter if you love or just kind of like technological advances, on many levels technology is the evil witch in the fairy tale, Hansel and Gretel. Building us a beautiful candy-filled home to lure us in and then try to throw us in the oven. Technology, though needed, doesn’t come as organically to the Gen X/Y generation who still loves relationships and paper catalogs as it does the Millenials. But all is not lost for the Gen X/Y entrepreneurs, just like in the end Hansel and Gretel got smart and put the witch in the oven. They used her offerings to their advantage and wouldn’t...
