What Martina McBride taught me about business…

I showed up in Nashville thinking I could be a songwriter… knowing a drummer. [Wow, now that I say that, I don’t even know what happened to Greg Frump.] Anyway, I showed up in Nashville pretty certain I could write a decent song. I honestly figured that all the...
…am I being ridiculous?

…am I being ridiculous?

I had coffee with a lovely budding entrepreneur. She has been trying to stick it out with what she calls her soul-sucking cube job while dreaming of starting her own online business. “Belinda, am I being ridiculous for wanting something different?” She asked me this as her eyes well up with tears. And my mind […]

…when mean girls grow up to be mean women: 5 Steps to Handling Them

Twenty years ago when I moved to Nashville, I walked into my new position in a female dominated office. My job had transferred me from my home state of West Virginia to their office smack dab in the middle of the “big” city. I was so happy to get to be in Nashville where I’d […]

…have you ever had someone in your life who really just isn’t nice to you? I have. I do, actually, if we’re being honest. I have a person in my life right now who would call me a friend. I’ve paid bills for this person when they couldn’t afford it, I’ve gone and sat at […]

Be like my pug and get what you deserve

I am a dog lover. (I would also call myself a foster failure and a total sucker for a sob story, which leads us to the reason I currently have four dogs.) But, I digress. Bernice is my 9 year old pug. Her full name is Bernice Renae Pants—I have no explanation. It’s just her […]

The Reckoning:  My second Walk from E22 to B14

The Reckoning: My second Walk from E22 to B14

I thought, “If I could only be her size, I would be happy. She’s a nice size, and she’s pretty. God, I would be so grateful if I could just look like her.”

Charlotte, NC:  the walk from terminal E, Gate 22, to Terminal B, Gate 14, will forever be etched into my mind. The first time I made that exact walk was a cold snowy night about 3 years ago. I was trying to get back home to Nashville from a business trip. I remember...
