How many home base business owners or online marketers remember to pay themselves first? How many experts forget that everything has a cost especially time? Time is the one thing you never get more of. Once you take a second from the time bank it can never be replaced. The key is that you can’t stop or slow the time bank withdrawal system.

I DO have a writing cave. For many years, I shared a very nice in-home office with my husband but when my son left for college, I pretty much confiscated his space. He has a gorgeous room, complete with desk and computer, so I took it over and never looked back. It’s a cozy room with a cherry sleigh bed that features a big silk palm tree behind it, a beautiful armoire holds television/music and shelving for my books. My writing desk is oak and tends to be the messiest part of the room. Along with my ever-present legal pad, pens, and stuff, I have my peppermints, hand cream, and assorted junk. A MESS. One of my favorite things in the room is a print of little boys playing baseball. We bought this for my son when he was young and it hangs over my desk. It reminds me of him so, naturally, I love it.

“Brits are obsessed by the weather, so it’s not surprising sunshine was rated as the top thing we couldn’t live without. But to say you can’t live without material things over drinking water is crazy.”- Sarah Richardson, Science Museum Exhibition Manager.
