A Leap at Opportunity or An Act of Foolishness?

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

I moved cities recently.  It was unplanned, unexpected, a leap at an opportunity that materialized seemingly out of nowhere. Everything unfolded quickly and even the potential obstacles melted away without a blink. Because the move happened so quickly I had a two-week overlap where both my former and my future homes were mine.  This was […]

When You’re Grieving a Hunk of Metal

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

I sold my motorcycle today. Let her go for a song.  As I knew I would. She was old.  She wasn’t pretty. I joked that we had that in common.  I’ve tried umpteen times in the last few years to sell her, and then two days after I’d post the ad I‘d remove it. The […]

Does The Opposite of Success Have To Be Failure?

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

Success and Failure seem to be a constant thread throughout our lives… and I believe the process is not always useful, nor accurate. Whether on a personal level or in a business sense, parameters can get blurred, or misconstrued, and sometimes be a source of defeat.  The subject came to mind recently while discussing the […]

It’s About Procrastination

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

  My name is Agnes and I’m a Procrastinator. Don’t get me wrong! I have a huge amount of energy and I always have something on the go… but there are certain things I can predictably avoid.  Difficult phone calls.  Financial statements.  Facebook ads. I was blind-sided recently when I found myself procrastinating over almost […]

As The City Gets Bigger, My World Gets Smaller

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

That observation came to me like a lightening bolt on a recent, and extended, visit to a city I lived in for about 30 years, but left 11 years ago. There were a number of compounding factors: traffic was ridiculous road construction was everywhere infrastructure had deteriorated pedestrians were device-absorbed shopping malls had grown into […]

Intergenerational Business Partners

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

Ok, that title is just for effect.  At the time of writing this, I do not have a business partner. I do, however, have a second computer set up on my desk that, for now, is used by only one person, and production is at a high level when that person sits in the chair. […]

Why You Can’t Pigeonhole A Baby Boomer

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

I found an interesting statistic yesterday.  In the U.S., in 1965, there were approximately 60 childbirths per 1,000 women under 20 years of age.  Even though the stats suggested it was higher than in many other western countries, that’s quite a few babies. I Want To Hold Your Hand When my brother graduated high school […]

Intention vs Inattention

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

I’m on a reading binge at the moment.  Motivational and business recommendations mostly and I’m thinking that, if I’m seeing a theme develop, perhaps I should pay attention! Like many of you, I spend a portion of my life on auto-pilot.  Even though I am determined to make my life about choices, and I really […]

Lost. Stolen. There Is A Difference.

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

I was going to start this post with a definition of “lose”, but when I went to dictionary.com, there were a couple dozen definitions (gotta love the English language!). Maybe I should start at the beginning: I had a career in ElderCare.  Frailty.  Dementia.  Illness.  and inevitably Death.  So many things in those days were […]
