Cultivate What Matters Goal Planner

Image
In 2009, Lara Casey, PowerSheets creator, best-selling author, and mom to three, wrote a blog post in an attempt to answer the many emails she received asking, "how do you do it all?" The blog post received a flurry of responses, resonating with hundreds of people. It sparked a movement that turned into the Making Things Happen Conference a decade ago, where she continues to lead attendees through the proven process to uncover what truly matters to them and do something about it. Those same principles are in every page of the Cultivate What Matters products. I got the Goal Planner, and OMG it is absolutely gorgeous! You want to use your life well, but you don't know how, or if, it's even possible. But, you have something now that you didn't have before: a new perspective.

Sonoma Wool Company

Five years ago, Sonoma Wool Company was born on a ranch in Valley Ford, California, and while a lot has changed since then, Sonoma Wool Company continues to thrive and grow. Since then, as the loom has continually churned out Dish Drying Mats, Ironing Board Pads, and other Sonoma Wool Company products - Sonoma Wool Company mattress toppers, pillows, and comforters, along with other local all-natural amenities. I received the Wool Dish Drying Mat with Linen Sleeve - Bring the simplicity of nature’s beauty into your home with one of the world’s most ancient fibers - wool & linen. Used for thousands of years, these “super” fibers naturally resists mold and mildew, are highly absorbent, and eliminate the need for using synthetics and plastics around your sink area.

If Dish Drying Mat is heavily used to the point of saturation, hang the mat between uses to increase air flow. It w…

Image
If you recently graduated from college, you are probably eager to begin your career. However, after more than a decade and a half as a student, you may find it challenging to transition from stressed student to confident executive. One key to starting a career successfully is projecting a poised, polished image. Professionals want to draw attention to their work, not their wardrobe. Ironically, that is easiest to do after you have given your wardrobe sufficient consideration.Ditch the BackpackUnless you are headed out for a hike, leave the backpack at home. To interviews and to work, carry a briefcase. Or choose a more stylish leather messenger bag for women for the perfect balance of fashion, functionality and sophistication.Leave the Hoodie at HomeHooded sweatshirts are comfortable and durable. For hanging out with friends or prepping your meals for the week, an old hoodie cannot be beat. However, a sweatshirt, even a new one in great condition, has no place in the workplace. A cert…
