"Out With the Crap!" ~ Women's Wednesday Wisdom

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / November 16, 2016 /

Another from the archives of “The Connection Station” at AWI. I love this one because it’s so perfect for the last few weeks of an old year; as we prepare for the new. Funny thing about us humans! We have an uncanny ability to hold onto things that have long since lost their meaning and…

"It's Okay – Really It Is!" ~ A Woman's Tuesday Topic

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / October 25, 2016 /

Another from our archives that is perfect – especially for this time of year. We are ending up ’16 and headed into ’17. As we look over our goals and objectives for this year, we may have fallen short of the mark. And falling short of the mark can be disappointing and disconcerting to say…

"GO!. . ." A Woman's Thursday Thoughts!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / October 13, 2016 /

I read recently when PAPA God tells us to “go”, we must do so without question or doubt! Otherwise our hesitancy becomes disobedience. And we know what disobedience can mean. . . In the early days of my Christian walk learning to do as told, I would just “go” when instructed to do something by…

The Trump Effect! Women, Business & Life

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / April 22, 2016 /

Disclaimer:This is not a political post. It is the thoughts of one woman in business after observing the almost miraculous candidacy of a man who has never been in the professional political arena before. But a person who has an exceedingly heighened sense about business, brand, marketing and a target audience that each of us…

Salt ~ First It Will Make You Miserable!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / April 19, 2016 /

Salt is one of our most used commodities. Jesus speaks of his followers as “salt and light”. As a seasoning in a world full of those who have yet to believe. It flavors that which is bland and adds zest to that which would otherwise be tasteless. It is known to heal. It will cut…

The Power of BOLD!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / March 16, 2016 /

A few days ago I posted an openly honest revelation of my need to “take a break”. I was at a breaking point and knew that if I didn’t back away from social media and from folks in general; I would do and say things unbecoming. And that’s putting it mildly! Seeking to recover from…

"From the Silence!" A Woman's Wisdom from the Season

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / December 24, 2015 /

I’m quite certain it was anything but a quiet night in Bethlehem. Obviously the small town was overloaded with pilgrims returning to their home city to comply with Caesar Augustus’ demand for a census. We know this because it’s recorded in the Gospel of Luke, which is the most quoted rendition of the Christmas story.…

"Love Me or Leave Me!" ~ Tuesday Dose to Encourage & Inspire

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / December 15, 2015 /

Sunday’s “Women’s Sunday Series” post was on how I can only love some folks at a distance. When I permit them up close; a lifetime of negative behavior makes it difficult to practice forgiveness and love them as we’ve been called to do (as ourselves).  Then this a.m. when searching for today’s MANTRA for our…

"Are We Tripping Over Pride?" ~ Women in Micro-Business

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / December 10, 2015 /

You know what they say – “pride goes before a fall”! And in my lengthy experience on earth; that statement is more true than not. There are many who would disagree, stating that we all need to have a level of “pride” in our skills, abilities, accomplishments, etc. To a point, that’s truth. But when…

"A Letter to Inspire" ~ Women and Micro-Business

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / November 12, 2015 /

It’s rare I do this; but from the moment I opened the following e-letter from Rob Hatch (President, Owner Media Group), I knew it is to be the “Women in Micro-Business” post for today!  Why? Because it has so much heart that I nearly sobbed before reaching the end. Not that sobbing is a requisite…
