Realign, Delegate, and Celebrate!

With our many hats, the holiday season often calls for a delicate balancing act between nurturing our businesses and creating cherished moments with family. This time of year allows us to showcase our inherent strength, resilience, and sparkle in managing professional and personal spheres. Here's a guide inspired by Nacr3's motto for women, highlighting the essence of Strength, Resilience, and Sparkle during this festive period.

Strength: Managing Business and Family

1. Establishing Boundaries
Strength lies in setting clear boundaries between work and family time. Define your work hours and communicate them to your team and clients. Emphasize the importance of uninterrupted family moments during the holidays.

2. Delegation and Collaboration
Tap into your strength by delegating tasks in your business and involving your family in holiday preparations. Empower your team and enlist family members to share responsibilities, fostering collaboration and unity.

3. Assertive Communication
Strength is in communication. Clearly articulate your availability to both your family and clients. Express your commitment to both, assuring quality interactions while ensuring your business operations continue smoothly.

Resilience: Navigating Challenges with Grace

1. Flexible Planning
Resilience shines through adaptable planning. Embrace flexibility in your schedules to accommodate unexpected family visits or work demands. Allow space for adjustments without compromising on essential commitments.

2. Time Management Strategies
Utilize resilient time-management techniques like prioritization and time-blocking. Allocate specific time slots for work, family activities, and holiday preparations, ensuring each aspect receives dedicated attention.

3. Self-Care Rituals
Resilience is nurtured through self-care. Prioritize moments of rejuvenation amidst the holiday rush. Incorporate self-care rituals into your routine, whether meditation, a bubble bath, or a calming cup of tea.

Sparkle: Adding Joy and Radiance

1. Infuse Joy in Work and Celebrations
Let your sparkle illuminate your work and celebrations. Infuse joy into your business by adding a festive touch to your workspace. Engage family in creating joyful holiday moments that sparkle with love and togetherness.

2. Embrace Imperfect Perfection
Sparkle comes from embracing imperfections with grace. Perfection isn't the goal; it's about creating heartfelt moments and memories. Celebrate the uniqueness of each moment, whether in business or family gatherings.

3. Reflect and Shine Forward
Sparkle by reflecting on accomplishments and setting intentions for the upcoming year. Take time to celebrate achievements, express gratitude, and envision a radiant future for your business and family.

Strength, resilience, and sparkle are woven into the fabric of every woman. As you navigate the holiday season, remember that your ability to gracefully manage work commitments alongside cherished family time epitomizes the beauty of your strength and resilience. May your holidays be filled with moments that shine brightly with love, joy, and success.

Good day Pearls , Now that the holiday season has come to an end our next big endeavor is TAX TIME! Of course, tax time tends to overwhelm the best of us but fiscal responsibility for business owners and individuals should not be frightful as long as you are preparing yourself accordingly. Though you may be quite familiar with filing your own taxes, don’t assume you are an expert with your small business tax responsibilities. In 2020, Pearls are Financially Strong, Resilient and Luminous. We, women small business owners need to ensure that we are rendering our businesses/side hustles healthy in all fiscal avenues. To prepare for this blog entry, I took the opportunity to speak with a Certified Public Accountant in the DC Metropolitan area with over 20+ years of experience to give some pointers on keeping your hustle solid and fiscally sound. Mr. Robert L. Waller, CPA/CFE , was eager to provide direction for Women Small Business Owners on a few questions regarding responsibiliti

Hey Pearls! The day has arrived when my solo writing project is complete. It is your pathway into my circle and my village. Grace Under Pressure: A Southern Belle in the City has arrived and is ready for purchase.  This labor of love took reflection, self-critique, dedication, and self-actualization. So, today we are going to acknowledge how this process can be the result of pearl-forming activities. I took the past 22 months to write the first installment of my journey as a village keeper. Traveling down this road of reflection required a lot of soul-searching, speaking truth to those things that held mental manipulation in my life, and building my knowledge about the behaviors and psychological attributes that impact my perspective and outlook on life.  Grace Under Pressure helped me build my strength as a woman because I learned a lot about myself and truly understood my pieces. Reflection and Self-critique allow for one to seriously consider their thinking, how it originated, and

Pearls, Pods, Purpose

Dear Pearls,  Thank you for patiently awaiting the next blog post of Nacr3! Covid-19 has been a major interruption in the flow of everyone's lives from our children to our elderly. Everyone has been impacted in a major way in all areas of their livelihoods: socio-economic, mental health, emotional health, family and friend relationships, and physical health. No one can doubt that it's highly unlikely that things will return to be 100 percent the same as our Pre-COVID lives, but Pearls this world-wide pandemic (both Covid-19 and BLM) has taken a toll on us all and we should look to recollect and emerge as the Pearl you are! Just think of COVID/BLM as the irritant our little oyster needed to create the best that is within us.  During the brief hiatus, every other day, week, and month I continued to contemplate the scope and sequence of the blog yearly outline. The first 2 weeks of March until the present day has shown me a few things about my own Nacr3. And I figured that I can&#
