Hello May 6th (a.k.a. exactly one month into my social media detox)! I feel like I should stand up and say, “Hi, my name is Katie and I’m a social media addict.” Some days are easier than others and, as each day goes by, I do believe the temptation fades a bit more. However, it’s always there just as with any addiction.Read More
Today marks a little over a week that I have not looked at or engaged with any of my personal social media accounts. Here’s what I’ve learned during my social media detox!Read More
A few weeks ago, I took a vacation to Puerto Rico with one of my besties. (A much needed vacation.) The goal of our trip: RELAXATION. As we were waiting at our gate to depart, we made a pact to not check social media while we were away. You’ll never believe what happens next …Read More

Let’s take a moment to talk about professional courtesy. Scratch that. Let’s just talk about plain courtesy. Throughout the course of my career, I have been in positions where I got to speak and work with customers, clients, coworkers, and agents from other companies … and the list goes on. Bottom line, I have become a self-taught expert in dealing with people. So here is my question: at what point did it become acceptable for people not to be courteous? I do not expect everyone to be Susie Sunshine all day, every day. I understand that people have bad days. However, there are some basics that I would think are just standard and not that difficult to abide by. In this blog post, I’m going to share my six tips to avoid being voted “Most Hated” in the workplace!Read More
"This battle went on for the majority of 2015 and 2016. I didn’t hate myself but I had settled on the fact that I was a Mom now and was never going to be as beautiful as I once was. I gave up and just thought that part of my life was over. Sad, huh?"Read More
Last night we attended our first Middlesex Chamber of Commerce Business After Work Event. When we launched LMG back in October, Katie and I both agreed that joining the Chamber would be a great way to grow our new business. Last night’s event hosted by Fire At The Ridge in Middlefield certainly affirmed our decision to do so.
In this blog post, we’ll recap our experience and share some details on what you can expect at a typical Middlesex Chamber of Commerce Business After Work Event.
It’s the New Year and we’ve been talking a lot about resolutions lately. If you’re looking to get more organized in 2018, I think it should start at home. Like many females, my day begins in my closet. So today, I’m going to share some tips for organizing your entire wardrobe in under an hour. I actually just did this myself a few days ago and it feels like I’ve removed a huge weight off my shoulders. I’m hoping you’ll feel that same way, too!Read More
Yesterday was a snow day here in New England. When I woke up to that white wonderland, I had three thoughts:
- Oh good, I can write that New Year’s Resolution blog I’ve been dying to get done.
- Oh God, I am stuck in a house with four dogs and a toddler who will undoubtedly be bored out of their mind by 10:00 a.m.
- Thank God my husband is home to endure the torture with me. (I am an awful wife.)
Lately, one of the most common questions I’m asked is “Wow, you are a super woman ... how do you do it ALL?” After all, I work as an Animal Control Officer, a Realtor, a Brand Ambassador, and … to top it off ... I am starting a shiny new marketing company. Now, let’s add my roles as mother, wife, and circus wrangler of four dogs and a cat. For the most part I shrug it off and say something to the effect of “Oh, it’s no big deal.”
I am here to share with you, whether you are a working or stay-at-home Mom or Dad … it is a big deal. Kids are NO JOKE. Especially toddlers. They will take you on and leave you begging for mercy.
A few weeks ago was particularly interesting...Read More
