Fortes and not so fortes

Not everyone can be good at everything. If you work with what you’ve got and steer yourself in the right directions, you may find yourself passing by people with talent that decided not to purse as aggressively as you did.

The Name Game

How did you come up with a name for your business? What tools did you use? For me, when I was starting out, I did a combination of Google keyword searches and checking domain availabilities. I tried to find the right combination for my tea business, Teazzed, and my newly written book, Black Cat Scribbles Vol. 1. In the end, I was happy with those name choices, but ultimately combined them on MGSpear.com. Did your name end up working for you?

Nerd Alert

Broke, but want to start your business? Ever considered using Microsoft Office to make graphics and perfect documents? That’s how I started out. I have added more tools to my arsenal since those early days, like PhotoShop and GIMP, but Office still is at the core of my operations: after all, I am a writer.

95. Pinterest Galore

So, more on using Pinterest. I have always been an avid user of Pinterest. I use it all the time to build up my boards for memes and interesting photos to show in my classes. There are soooo many pictures related to science and they definitely pique my students’ interests. Plus how fun is it […]

86. Consulting Cover Letters

Details matter, especially in job hunting. Recently I had a client who lost their job and was desperate to find another as soon as possible. I offered my services for cover letters and set up email tracking for them for a few jobs they really wanted to get an interview for. The way you word […]

74. Business Growth: New Year Goals

One of the things I like about inventing is always seeing possibility on the horizon. A failed experiment gleans new insights into how things work and allows me to create a new experiment to try. For my experiments I collect all kinds of odds and ends to help me out—just recently I got some shower […]

47. Helping hand

I recently had a consultation with someone to help them with business cards. Okay, they were making cards to hand out as a wedding reminder, but they wanted it done using a business card. I helped them through the process, and by the end of the night the client got the result that they wanted. […]

Teazzed

46. Tea recipes

I kind of like the idea of getting more into digital products. I have my short stories, and some more products I am kicking around for Shop MGSpear, but I don’t really have anything digital for Teazzed—currently I just sell our awesome biodegradable Teazzed straw that quick brews tea in under 30 seconds. What I […]

38. Forgetfulness

Have you ever walked into a room and forgotten why you went in there? It could have been super important, but for some reason just slipped your mind. I absolutely hate it when that happens. The same thing happens to me if I don’t write something down. I might think in the moment, “I will […]

28. Not always perfect

Did you know that when you look at something, what your eyes really capture is equivalent to the jerky, unstable images of a handheld camera? So why is it that we see so clearly? Because our brain compiles those jerky images from our eyes moving around and stitches them all together to make one cohesive […]
