My Bright Idea Secret

One of the best ideas I ever had was to start this blog.  It has introduced me to so many amazing wonderful people and it has been a true joy to share part of my life with so many of you!

I often get asked where I come up with so many different ideas.  Well, today I am going to share my secret with you….

This secret is the reason I started Homebased Portland, Homebased Scrapbooker  and yes, I have a few other fun exciting ideas up my sleeve that I hope to share with you soon!

The secret is Idea Coaching.

My good friend Sherra and I have been Idea Coaching with each other for a long time.  We use each other as a sounding board and bounce ideas off each other all the time.

We have discovered that many times our great ideas are right in front of us and we just can’t see them. We need someone else to point them out, to help give us the confidence to boldly march in and do whatever it is we have always wanted to do!

We very quickly learned women need other women to encourage and support them.  iLashGirls, the blog we run together was one of those ideas to help encourage and support other women.

We are now ready to take it a step further.  Because we have had so much fun turning our ideas into reality we are now ready to help other women with tools, resources and services so that they can turn their idea into a reality!

Do you have an idea that’s been floating around in your head for a while, something you’ve always wanted to do but not had the courage to try? Maybe you’ve wanted to start a blog in a niche market you feel strongly about or maybe it’s a product or service you’ve been wanting to develop.

That’s what Idea Coaching is all about.

Using our years of  entrepreneurial business experience helping women start their own business we want to help you “Find Your Sock Yarn”  For more explanation on what I mean by “Find Your Sock Yarn” click on over to iLashGirls and check out our Moments & Memories post this week and a great chance to win some free Idea Coaching!!

    thanks again for your encouraging and inspiring blogposts. I am SO enjoying trying your recipes, reading about your family, and getting nudged sometimes to move forward with something. Women like you> make women like me> stronger. Sisters in the “blog-hood”
    Keep it up.
    Can you feel God keeping you calm and strengthening you to carry on? :-)
