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…

From the AWI Treasury ~ Ministry: Professional or Lifestyle?

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / May 24, 2019 /

May, the perfect whirlwind month! Graduations, weddings, major holiday celebrating mothers & remembering our war dead as well as loved ones gone before us. You name it and the month of May seems to have it contained within. However, those of us who must manage the “contained within” rarely feel as if we have the…

Thoughts of Success & Failure ~ From the AWI Archives!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / March 15, 2019 /

Sometimes We Must. . .  Sometimes we must adjust our days and weeks to accommodate life events we hadn’t planned for. Such is the case for me the past several weeks. Friend’s sudden illness, hospitalization and subsequent stay in skilled care threw my usual schedule into disarray. It also intruded on writing fresh content for…

Time For A Deep Dive

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / January 18, 2019 /

Anytime’s Good, But A New Year is Best! A few months ago, a friend thanked me for encouraging her to take a “deeper dive” into understanding her personal-professional motives on an important matter. I’ve been thinking about her comment since she noted it on an FB post and the blog post that prompted her comment.…

Gearing Up. . . Or Winding Down?

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / December 28, 2018 /

I’m not your conventional business woman. I don’t do what the guru’s say should be done. Not that I’m anti-guru; I’m just aware of who I am and what works best for me. I share that so that if you’re a bit unconventional, it may work for you too! If so, then read this post about winding down the old and gearing up for the new!

Are You Really Serious About Your Business!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / December 14, 2018 /

The Busiest Season of the Year! It’s the busiest season of the year. Even without children at home, presents to wrap (just checks in envelopes these days), or major baking chores; I don’t seem to have the time to right a fresh blog each Friday.  So I’ve dug into the AWI archives to again find…

Tripping Over Our Pride?

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / November 4, 2018 /

Another post from the AWI archive of articles submitted for Nancy Becher’s online magazine! Some topics never go out of style or lose their positive impact. The subject of pride is one of them.  Pride or Something Much More Nefarious? You know what they say – “pride goes before a fall“! In my lengthy experience…

Let Your Light Shine ~ Because It's 'Cool!'

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / October 5, 2018 /

Let Your Light Shine. . . Last Friday, I talked about introversion as an obstacle to business success. Or so folks say. I also said that sometimes, it’s cool to go against the flow. To be experienced as cool and aloof when others are outgoing and gregarious. How many times that supposed conventional wisdom doesn’t…

When It's Cool to be Cool!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / September 28, 2018 /

When It’s Cool to be Cool! Provocative title I think. Provocative because it could mean almost anything – and be about almost anything. But this post is about us business women, Christian specifically, who are seen as “cool” because we wear our introversion on our sleeve. I can say this because more often than not,…

Wise Up Woman of God!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / September 21, 2018 /

Living in the Muck & Mire. . . There are those who love dirt. No matter what life brings; they will choose to live where life is dirtiest. And I don’t mean earth’s dirt. I mean the yuck that sticks to us when we persist in being our own worst enemy to the detriment of…
