Notes From My Gratitude Journal

By Nicole Mangina | Jul 16, 2020

My guest for The 425 Show had to reschedule at the last minute this week. It’s a pretty rare occurrence, but when it does, the debate is always – to replay an episode or hop on the air and go solo. As comfortable as I’ve gotten doing the show, it’s a whole different feeling when…

By Nicole Mangina | Apr 17, 2020

Emotions are running at an all time high right now. We have all been profoundly affected in one way or another with what is going on. It takes daily, intentional effort not to get caught up in the doom and gloom. It’s easy to feel like the world is at a standstill as we all…

How Do You Plan For The Worst While Trying To Manifest The Best?

By Nicole Mangina | Apr 10, 2020

I’ve been thinking about this lot lately. I mentioned it in last week’s post too, but this is feeling a lot like 2008. Meaning sales are still happening, but not as many. My personal thought is that we need to be prepared for 4-6 months of minimal income. Even if the stay in place order…
