This week, TOC TOWN EXPRESS is all about paper planners and posting updates, as well as a few spectacular changes.  For the next 3 MONTHS, 90 DAYS, YUP… I am committed to a NO SPEND SUMMER.  In addition to avoiding the planner haul blogs and videos, I will be shopping my current stash for necessary supplies, accents, embellishments and don’t forget that “must~have” accessory to finally finish re-organizing the new studio space.

YES!!!!! You saw it in black and white print!!!!  We have officially announced our brick and mortar place for 2016 Summer Socials, TOC TOWN HALL.  I’ll have more details as the out and about setup sessions progress.  There is even talk about doing YouTube and GOOGLE+ EXPRESS “live” for some on the spot, *mobi business admin Q & A.

If you want to join us for our first planner meet & greet retreat, drop us a note in the guest guide and I’ll make sure you receive the reserved details and transportation info.  Okay, my social media friends, until we meet within our online community or face~to~face, take care.

Re~Hydration Nation…

TOC TOWN EXPRESS: Team One Bloggess Sphere is still a new mastermind network of small business owners working together to establish home-based community businesses. We collaborate on a weekly basis to implement successful business tactics as well as proven innovative marketing strategies.

While the seasons continue to drastically dip as well as shift, this week, I’m working on fortifying my immune system by remaining nutritionally hydrated.  Every once in a while, I come up with a few tasty combinations that please our local taste testers.  If you decide to try some of the suggestions, let us know.  I hope you continue to enjoy the interesting flavors and aromas flowing through our test kitchen experiments, “small beginnings”.

Don’t hesitate in allowing us to know what you think by commenting below this post.  I’d really like to continue hearing and seeing your feedback on the creative content we’ve been publishing. You are welcome to connect with us through various social media channels during Season Six: Back~To~Basics.  Blessings!!!

We’ve gotten off to a rather bumpy start for February, 2016.  It proves that our community is still alive and continuing to flow through Season Six: “Bridging Everything Through Back~To~Basics.”

As promised, I have provided two types of PDFs as planner inserts and suggested journal prompts. They are a simple thank you gift for your continued support and subscription.

2016 Season Six: “Bridging…”

Merry Christmas from TOC TOWN EXPRESS!!! We are a couple of weeks away from officially transitioning through another season in hopes of restoring faith, hope and illuminated light into your world and environment.

My plans to continue updating you and revealing the nuts and bolts of TOC TOWN moves forward. In fact, this year we decided to continue through the Summer months of 2016 and slide right into Season 7, where we move onward and upward.

During Season Six: “Bridging Everything Through…” Because we have been blessed with many resources, we are able to continue providing creative content through multiple accessible price points. As a gift to you and your continued subscription, I am excited to make a general newsletter available in the bookstore for a “whatever you can” donate price. I will try to have a new issue available on a quarterly basis. If you have benefited from the types of platforms we have created, feel free to download the PDF. You can also keep it for your own resource bin and/or pass it along to another friend. We just ask that you leave a “whatever you can” donation in order to keep this type of content flowing around and about the community.

Once again, I pray your transition into small business ownership has been made smoother as a result of the creative content shared within

Look for details about our next Chief Artisan Trainers’ Retreat. Bring a cup of coffee, tea and cafe con leché as the creatively constructed conversations continue face~to~face.

2015 Small Business Saturday

We made it!!!! TODAY is the official day where small business owners are celebrated and supported through our active participation.

However, it’s with a heavy heart, I have to share the loss of one of our Bloggess Sphere members and dear friend, Pastor Shannon Williams. We managed to upload her first mentoring series for future educators and life long learners, While her cherished works within the Chicago Public Education System and local community will live on, she will be sorely missed.

As we continue on, I would like to thank you for your valued subscription and support. We are continuing to make plans for 2016 and look forward to hosting on-site retreats for your well-being and complete restoration.

As always, be sure to visit the online site, and sign in the guestbook. Blessings as you wrap up 2015 and prepare for your new perspective in 2016.
