A Day in the Life

December 8, 2014

7:30AM -8AM

Woke up, got dressed, and checked my email.

8AM -10AM

Went to Stone Mountain for my weekly hike. This is what gets my creative juices flowing.


Prepped for my speaking engagement on helping couples heal from past infidelity. My 3 city tour is coming up next week, and I can’t wait. YAY! I love to travel and meet new people.


Put the finishing touches on my upcoming webinar about infidelity. I’m excited about reaching a broader audience, but also a bit nervous. Hope it goes well.


Wrote psychological reports while eating lunch (Thought- I need to hire a psychometrist; time to build that team).


Saw 5 clients (one each hour). That’s my limit. Anymore, and I start to question my effectiveness.


Headed home. Listened to a few business podcasts on the way from my private practice.


Made it home and kissed husband. Aww, I missed him.


Ate dinner. Since my husband works from home, he made dinner. Yay:) Cuddled together while watching Law and Order. Checked email.

10PM- 11PM

Read Bible and took a shower.


Went to sleep.
