November 14, 2014


I had a truly amazing day yesterday at Andrea Lee's Wealthy Thought Leader coaching salon! It was a day of deep thought, great conversations and awesome insights. Also it was a good reminder of the value of getting out there live and being in the energy of the room. I'm starting today with a lot of ideas percolating!


I've been having issues with how iTunes organizes music for quite a while now, and there was a recent update that totally messed everything up even more. I'm not trying Windows Media Player, and I'm still getting used to it but so far it's feeling much better. It imported all my music (easily) and set where I wanted the default save place to be (also easily) and I can view stuff by album, artist or genre and also make playlists pretty easily. I did get some errors that I still need to sort out, but so far I'm much happier using it to organized and listen to my own music. Fingers crossed that continues!

P.S. In the time it took to upload the picture I solved the error problem!


Oh my goodness yesterday was a crazy day! The big thing was getting the President's Choice Christmas Box delivered and you two get a first look at some of the goodies! I also baked cookies, made ice cream… Did a ton of photography and my first bargain or bust video where I buy stuff from thrift stores and then record whether or not they work when I get home. It was a ton of fun to do, I loved it. So glad I came up with that idea.

Oh, Shannon, that's awesome Windows Media Player is so far looking promising! You're inspiring me to remove myself from the shackles of iTunes too! Yay to havign access to your music in a way that feels better!

OMG, Bargain or Bust! I love that idea so much. I can't wait to see your video. What a fun idea. And yum, what a treat to get a Christmas Box. Look at those goodies! What a busy, productive day, Suzie!

I'm so glad you had a good time at the coaching salon, sounds like so many ideas got to percolating. It's so true that sometimes you just need that in-the-room energy. And getting to see Andrea Lee in person... Wow! That's pretty cool :)

Ah...removing the shackles of iTunes, hehe that is so ture!!

I love the idea of Bargain or Bust videos Suzie, I can't wait to see it. And I can't wait to see the reveal of the PC Christmas stuff. It looks like from this sneak peek you are in for a treat. Actually, lots of treats!

Way to go getting out there Jamie and thank you for sharing your insights about transforming the grit of our lives into pearls. I've been mulling that over ever since!

I don't have an iPod anymore so I never listen to music (sigh) but I do find iTunes confusing no matter what so that's great you're using Windows Media Player Shannon!

Thanks, I can't wait to work on the videos too, I'm so excited. Going to keep them short and fun and entertaining which works for me. And yes, lots of treats, OMG!
