A Change of Seasons. . .

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / August 2, 2019 /

A Change of Seasons. . . It’s really not a change of season as much as a change of mood and focus. I speak of having taken the month of July off from blogging. It would be great to report that the time off was consumed by a vacation at the beach, long sauntering walks…

I Struggle! I Bet You Do Too. . .

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / February 22, 2019 /

I Struggle. . .  I sit here struggling with what to write for this week’s post. Yes, it’s Thursday and the post doesn’t have to appear until tomorrow. But if I don’t do it now; it won’t get done. And I haven’t a clue what I want to say. What I ought to say. What…

Kick the Perfectionism Habit!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / October 19, 2018 /

It’s A Trap! Perfectionism is a trap. It traps us into putting off the things we say we most desire. Like success – however we define that for ourselves. It keeps us on a treadmill going over and over the same things again and again; each time attempting to make the “thing” a little better…

Know Before You Go! Really? For Christian Business Women

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / March 2, 2018 /

What Do I Mean By That? Over the years that I have been blogging, I’ve posted how important it is for business women to “know before they go”. What I mean by that relates to the process we call “networking”. It’s important we know our business, our target market or markets, who we want to meet at…

It's Okay. . . Thoughts for Christian Business Women!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / February 16, 2018 /

FRIDAY THOUGHTS! As you may know,I try to do a blog post each Friday here at our website “home”; AFFILIATEDWOMEN.com. This week was no different.

Touch Points~Thoughts for Christian Business Women!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / February 9, 2018 /

Critical Moments! I call them “touch points”. Those times in life where we suddenly come to a fork in the road. Or a barrier that requires a change of direction we didn’t anticipate. Those moments when the bottom drops out of what we thought was well-oiled; greased and on the right track. The “touch point” of…

Time To Be Real! Thoughts for Christian Business Women!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / January 26, 2018 /

Thoughts for Christian Business Women! The past several weeks, I’ve dealt with an injury and subsequent health issue brought on by the injury. As pain spread throughout my body, fog spread across my mind. My brain descended into dark recesses of anger, depression and abject ugliness clouded my usually confident self! I snarled at almost everything…

Hush Heard 'Round the World!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / December 22, 2017 /

Hush Heard ‘Round the World! What a paradox? No sound being heard all over the earth. How can that be? And if so. . . so what? I’m sure you know of what I speak. All that is written about a birth centuries ago in a smelly stable stall with wet hay, animals and excrement.…

Trust Me, Failure Is Good For Us!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / December 15, 2017 /

Trust Me, Failure Is Good For Us! Sometime ago I had a counseling client who told me she had never failed at anything. In fact, she was emphatic she had never been part of anything that failed either. Failure was not part of her vocabulary; nor of any aspect of her life it seemed. When I…

The Value of Bread Crumbs!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / September 15, 2017 /

Bread Crumbs! That’s how I felt when a glimmer of creative hope dropped into sight this morning. Scrambling for a blog post subject, I was creatively dry as a bone and lamenting same to a friend. “If only I had a few bread crumbs with which to start,” I complained. The “Curse” for Women in Business.…
