I have a confession to make … it’s time to come clean … I issued a challenge to all of you in our Newsletter, but I haven’t been able to do it completely 🙁
I really wanted to get my piles of paper clutter organized and filed … but it wasn’t meant to be. Not in February anyway, but it’s OK ~ I got a little bit done, and “every little bit helps” 🙂 I was able to shred my pile of “you’re pre-approved” mail and “opt out” of receiving them. I also spent a lot of time preparing financial spreadsheets to give to our tax guy. I’ve made myself a goal to enter this data monthly from now on … no more procrastinating and waiting to the last minute.
I also spent some time going through and deleting some files on our family computer. As long as I’m confessing, I still had many, many homeschooling files … and, yes, my youngest child graduated in 2011 😉 I have to remind my perfectionist self that “every little bit helps”!
So, they say confession is good for the soul, and so is forgiveness … so I am forgiving myself, instead of mentally beating myself up. This paper clutter is an ongoing challenge that I will continue chipping away at … I hope you’ll join me.

Tracy Helps You is Celebrating it’s 1st Anniversary on March 21st With An Amazon Gift Card Giveaway
Last year around this time, Tracy Helps You was just an idea that I was tossing around. I was entering into a new “season” of my life. I had finished homeschooling my children. After graduating high school, my children were too old to participate in the theater group that kept us so busy (all parents were assigned to a volunteer committee each production) during their teen years. I was starting to feel a little of the empty nest syndrome … my oldest was preparing to move into his first apartment and my youngest was hardly ever home.
I went from super busy … to … now what do I do? I had a lot of free time. I worked part-time for a while, but after being a stay at home / homeschooling mom for so long, I was quite accustomed to making and managing my own schedule. I wasn’t so used to being told what to do, how to & when to do it 🙂 So I decided to “get in touch with my inner entrepreneur” and start my own business.
March 21, 2013 … the day it became official! It’s hard to believe that it is coming up on a year already; the time has really flown by. I have spent so much time (tons) learning about owning and running your own small business. I’ve read dozens of books, researching and learning about creating and managing a website. I’ve attended numerous seminars and webinars about blogging, SEO and social media marketing. I’ve learned so much in a short time … but there is so much more to learn. Things in the cyber world are constantly changing and evolving.
I’ve enjoyed meeting so many new people ~ some who have become regular repeat clients. I really, truly like being able to offer my services to help people. I feel my first year in business has been quite successful and look forward to helping people for many years to come 🙂
To CELEBRATE this momentous occasion, Tracy Helps You is having an Anniversary Giveaway on March 21st … enter below to win 🙂
