Gillean Smith: How hard is it to own your own business?

Liana: I think the hard parts of owning the business is doing the pieces that I may not know as well as I would like. Everything else comes with ease. So, buckling down and doing the pieces we don't like and not procrastinating seems to be ... (more)

My teenager needs his spirit broken and not his bones!

By BusinessLife, published on Apr 14, 2011

Dear TAI (Talk About It),

I am a single mom with two boys. My oldest is 13-years-old. His disrespect for me is and has continued to grow for more than a year. I know and remember all the emotions and changes that took place in my teenage years. If a boy made fun of me or said something to me that hurt my feelings, this 30 seconds or so could ruin my entire day. But things are really getting out of hand. He basically lives on his computer playing this Wizard 101 game.

If I try to talk with him or remind him of his chores while he is on his computer his response is almost always,... (more)

Love doesn't always come with an offering plate

By BusinessLife, published on Apr 12, 2011

I can't take one more step towards something I just simply don't believe in anymore.

Today, I learn to live appreciating what I see, what I feel and knowing that love is an explosion of sentiments, experiences and questions that often have no answers.

I hear you pushing me to explain why I can't say, "I am in love with you."

But what answer have I to bring when the words are mere illusions to me?

How can I fathom what the touch of this sentiment brings if I can not relate to the words, the moments in time that have never past the door of my soul?

What more... (more)

The Soft, Sands of Love

By BusinessLife, published on Apr 6, 2011

I do not yet understand what I feel.

I can not possibly fathom what stirs inside me or even give it a name.

Someone passing by may call it love. But who can really be sure? And who really knows?

Throughout our lives, love is seen and felt and heard and soaked up in most areas of our hearts, our souls, our minds.

So, is this same love now in the very fiber of what makes me who I am today?

Is it worth truly exploring?

With a lump in my throat, I try to find ways to preoccupy my time.

I look, I listen, I read all that I can without allowing my mind... (more)

Broo Writers Share Your Craft During National Poetry Month

By BusinessLife, published on Apr 6, 2011

To increase the appreciation of poetry in the U.S., National Poetry Month was introduced by the Academy of American Poets in 1996. In fact, former President Bill Clinton declared in a Presidential Proclamation that "we need more artists to imagine the best future for us and remind us what is good and constant in our past."

With this in mind, I encourage the great writers of Broo to bare their souls in poetic excellence. To begin with a bit of poetic inspiration, one of my favorite poems that reminds me of the unendless needs life requires of us is as follows:

New online platform takes on relationship management

By BusinessLife, published on Apr 5, 2011

Couples in troubled relationships can already turn to print and online advice columnists. Now springwise.com reports that a newer option, however, is to use technology to help prevent such disagreements from ever arising. That's the premise behind Tokii, which bills itself as the world's first relationship management platform.

Now in beta, Canadian Tokii is a free site that aims to help couples improve their relationships in a playful, easy way through interactive tools and games. The site's TradingPost tool, for example, helps couples negotiate for what they want — a back rub,... (more)

TALK ABOUT IT - What's a great date in 2011?

By BusinessLife, published on Mar 16, 2011

TALK ABOUT IT (TAI),

I'm in my mid to late 40s and have been divorced for about six years now. It's taken some time for me to truly feel comfortable with the idea of spending time with another woman in a romantic situation. I loved my wife very much and lost her to breast cancer. It was a tough battle and extremely painful at the end. But I am finally starting to think about dating again after all this time. I'm pretty sure that this one lovely lady that I recently met through some mutual friends is interested in me. But as far as dating, I really have no idea what the right type of... (more)

The Frozen Chair Given To Me

By BusinessLife, published on Mar 15, 2011

I am so torn by the thoughts and thorns that strip my soul and make my secrets known.

What will I do? What can I do?

I am naked among those with clothes.

Cold and forgotten is all I feel and know.

I am without voice as there are millions who are heard laughing and cackling on the wind that passes by.

I am alone.

I am in a chair.

I can go nowhere else until I do what I am told.

I am always told what to do.

I may never speak against what I am told.

I die a little more today.

I am loneliness and despair.

I weep... (more)
