Reading Time: 7 Minutes Powersheets review time again! If you noticed, I skipped my August video … … because I was on SABBATICAL! One of my very favorite months of the year and annual traditions of our (now) three-year-old marriage. Each fresh start of the month, I’ll be telling you an update on my goals, and including what went […]

Reading Time: 6 Minutes Powersheets review yet again! I get a little all-American nerdy at the beginning of July, plus, it’s pretty much New Year’s Day #2. Each fresh start of the month, I’ll be telling you an update on my goals, and including what went on last month—there’s a whole playlist of these on the YouTube channel … […]

Reading Time: 6 Minutes Eek—Powersheets review time again! June is my ABSOLUTE hands-down favorite month of the year (December is close second, as Christmas has my heart). My June memories dance between swimming lessons growing up and running through the sprinkler with neighbors, Vacation Bible School crafts and wandering through farmer’s goods at the curb market before ballet class. […]

Reading Time: 5 Minutes April, you were a sun-dappled month of spring bustle, wheels-up jet-setting, and one big ‘ol launch (hence a lot of sleep). As for you May? Let’s roll. Each fresh start of the month, I’ll be telling you an update on my April goals, and including my May goals—this is also the subject of this week’s video […]

Reading Time: 4 Minutes February, you were cozy, full of rain showers, airports upon airports, plane row middle-seats, and sleep-in mornings. This first morning of March, I felt like a bear stretching post-hibernation, and ready to bounce towards a bit of a “hustle-ish” season after a few months of quieted winter days. 2017 wrapped with a big house move […]

Reading Time: 5 Minutes I’ll be honest: January wasn’t what I expected. We went from a year of a big move, December of Wes being groomsman x2  (spring? x4. He’s popular.), slowing a business WAY down, and a December where I’m quite positive I worked nearly every day just to calm things down and do my part to move […]

Reading Time: 4 Minutes Well, we did it: we moved, wrapped up the first full financial calendar year of the business (and 42 clients and a partridge in a pear tree) and celebrated Christmas—all within two weeks. Welcome home to the Carter Craftsman! 😉 ‘Twas a cardboard-scented, grace-filled holiday of realizing a lot of my to-do list and Powersheets […]

Reading Time: 4 Minutes It’s pouring rain outside my little studio window, and—this is the first time I’m saying this publicly—this is my last week in the little ranch home we’ve lived in since we got married. The nostalgia’s wafting up like the Christmas Spirit flavor (is that the right word??) essential oils diffusing beside me, but I’m not […]

Reading Time: 4 Minutes Ah, Powersheets—my favorite goal-setting resource ever. My best friend from growing up Becca texted me last week: “Powersheets. Yes or no, since I don’t have a business?” I immediately voice noted her: “Yes. This is the first resource or workbook I found that helped me look at the past year and see exactly what I […]
