Recipe for Success


apple-crumbI made apple crumb dessert with vanilla ice cream last week. The first time I’ve ever made it.

Competitive with Epicurious, it was delicious and Ray and Leah (and I!) loved it.

My friend Diane Bishop blessed us with the cinammon-sprinkled slices of apples, fresh grown from hers and her husband Herb’s trees on their beautiful property in Appleton City, MO, and preserved in a Mason Jar. She invited me over for lunch last week and gave me her recipe for the apple crumb dessert. I made it that day for supper. Ray and Leah wanted more.

At her house, Diane and I chatted while enjoying her chicken salad sandwiches, chips, and home-made cookies, then walked around their property. She showed me their acres of 750 pecan trees, an assortment of fruit trees, their garden and pond, and all the canning and freezing she’d been doing this winter.

I’ve never done canning or freezing, and it intrigued me. This excited Ray (the man loves to eat!) and today he brought home 2 sacks of corn for me to put up in the freezer.

Diane and I picked raspberries while talking about my new book, the books she and her husband Herb want to write, my recent Just Write! No Excuses Summer Virtual Bootcamp, their ministry, our kids and grandkids, and more.

While I’d eaten blackberries off a bush before, I have never actually picked berries to take home. It was fun picking raspberries and talking. Diane gave me her large bowlful, too. I made raspberry crumb dessert using her same apple crumb dessert recipe, which Ray said was “incredible.”

A recipe for success!

A great recipe calls for the right ingredients, the right oven temperature, and the right amount of time. 

What ingredients do you need to move your business forward?

  • Buying your domain name and finding a website hosting service?
  • Getting a new website theme?
  • Creating your speaker one-sheet and short bio?
  • Outlining your book’s chapter headlines?
  • Eliminating distractions?
  • Conquering procrastination and perfectionism?
  • Renewing your mind to overcome negative thoughts and walk in confidence?

If you need help and encouragement, I offer 4 types of coaching packages here for speakers, writers, coaches, and entrepreneurs just getting started.
