One of my favorite tools for success is a Vision Board. A Vision Board is simply a visual representation of your wants and dreams - all mashed together in one place. There is no "right" or "wrong" to a Vision Board. The idea behind this is that when you surround yourself with images of who you want to become, what you want to have, where you want to live, what you want to drive, how you want to impact the world, or where you want to vacation, and by doing so, your life changes to match those images and those desires.
Several years ago while searching eBay for Gardening Tools, I ran across a company called eFavorMart. I was wowed not only at their awesome assortment of personalized goodies, but at the PRICE! Everything from customized organza bags, matchbooks, napkins, favor boxes... but all at a price that was much more reasonable than I ever would have expected. eFavorMart is geared mostly towards weddings, but with a little imagination, you can really come up with some awesome tools to boost your home party plan business!
I am still buzzing from all of the excitement and ideas I received at the Orlando Spark & Hustle, and I am about to just burst with excitement over all of the ideas and tips I will be sharing with all of you starting in June for our 30 Days of Faves. But one of the things that has really stood out for me has been all of the new BBFs I have received and continued to talk to and get encouragement from every single day, and it got me thinking... do you have a BBF?
If there was one business tool that I would say I absolutely "can not do business without" (My Diva Success System Planner not included) it would be my Mobile Office. I do not go ANYWHERE without my Mobile Office! It is either in my office or in my car, and I even take it in to all of my parties! If you need to get organized - and fast - set up a Mobile Office! You will wonder how you ever did business without it!

Last week I had the privilege of going to see Randy Draper, Diamond Executive Director with Premier Jewelry, Inspirational Speaker, and Founder of HeartSpring Media. He was speaking at Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas for their weekly Power Lunch, and I just HAPPENED to be in Fort Worth, Texas the week he was there. (My friend Jan Hatchett, Your Favorite Jewelry Lady, was more than a bit jealous! ;) )
