Is Your Rose In Full Bloom or Wilted? Mine fizzled, farted and faded today….all because of fraud and a bad attitude towards business in my state

So, here’s how today went.  My ‘Rose’ was in full bloom…. buzzing right along.  Making money.  Building a stellar reputation.  Building a great crew.  Creating jobs.  Lots of jobs….. then the unthinkable happened.  Fraud.  Fraud that only those in my state feel due to the huge unfriendly attitude towards business, especially small ones.  Maybe this happens in your state too.  That’s how I feel.  Defeated.  Deflated.  No one is there to help me and my employees.  No one is there to protect us, the innocent small business owners just trying to create jobs and opportunity and maybe, just maybe, make a profit.  Today, I lost my company.  Today I lost my company due to fraud.  Today is a very sad day.

But….I will survive, even if it means starting over again.

What about you?  Have you had this happen to your business?  How did you conquer and prevail?

We will you know.  We can….and we shall do it together.

Creating an App? Know Your Competition First. (Infographic)

I am what many refer to as a techie geek.  While I don’t have near the experience or training I probably should have, I love to discover!  I am thinking of taking on the challenge of developing an app.  I found this infographic helpful while I start piecing my new creation together.

The key to a successful app is knowing what else is out there and finding a way to get ahead.

Welcome to AskMsDeb

Thank you for stopping by!  The purpose of this blog is to share information specific to safety and everyday life.

It is so easy to get wrapped up in all that goes on around us.  The world seems to turn faster and faster.  This results in our sometimes missing out on the important things in life, be them family, taking time out for outselves, or skimping on safety.

I invite your comments and feedback as we go on this new, unknown adventure together.  Feel free to offer suggestions for future discussions or topics.  This blog is really a potpourri of ideas, suggestions, thoughts and just plain ol’ interaction.



Woman to Woman….

As a Small Business owner in a male-dominated industry, I know first hand many of the trials and tribulations some may encounter.  I also know that it’s sometimes difficult to find others who understand that we can talk to in confidence.

It is my hope that this blog will give us all a place to come to discuss all things woman!  This includes our daily work lives…

I look forward to growing our network of women who stand by one another and help each other grow, prosper and, most importantly, find that balance that we all need in our lives.

Here’s to each and every one of you!
