Nothing Past Nine has been around for going on five years - FIVE years! During that time, many things in my life have changed...and many haven't! NPN has been a constant, always hovering on the edge of my active thoughts. In all that time, however, I've struggled to give the idea of NPN a true … Continue reading Identity
Don't the proverbial "they" say that the first step is the hardest? Or...getting started is the toughest part? Something along those lines? Regardless, I've been thinking back on how much work it was to set up Nothing Past Nine, and the anxiety I felt before getting my first real sale. (Sorry friends and family, you didn't … Continue reading Small Affirmations
You haven't heard from me in quite some, sorry! My goals, my business and this blog have taken many turns over the last few years, but I am excited about some recent developments and hope to start a shift that will make a big difference in my life. As my husband and I slowly inch our … Continue reading Welcome to Entrepreneurship!
Some people chuckle at the fact that my library card was one of the first things that made me feel like Charlotte was home, but I have devoured books as long as I can remember. Even when it meant Mom had to read "just one more chapter" before I would consider sleeping! I am a huge … Continue reading What I’m Reading
Last year, my brother got married in wine country in October. Growing up in the midwest, an outdoor ceremony in October could mean a threat of snow! Even here on the East Coast, we get a lot of cool, wet weather that can dampen the excitement (pun fully intended!). As you can imagine, packing for … Continue reading Cross Country Inspiration

Joking aside, many on this side of the country are smartly playing it safe and staying home to avoid flooded roads and torrential … Continue reading Waiting out Joaquin
I wish I could pull off saying, "ya'll" because..... ya'll, I'm so sorry! I haven't kept up with my summer series, and the relaunch is now a week away! While I feel awful for not executing the adage of "under promise and over deliver," there are a couple of silver linings that I'm dubbing Light Bulb Moments. … Continue reading Light Bulb Moments!
Big ideas in the new year are all well and good when you aren't planning a wedding that's happening shortly after! Nothing Past Nine has suffered throughout my wedding planning process, and no more so than in the past few months. I have decided to develop this lapse into an opportunity for growth and change. Many of … Continue reading It’s Happening!
Ay yi yi, friends! It's "late" November already!!! I knew it had been awhile since I was able to post, but had no idea it had been weeks! I've been working on a personal "happiness" challenge with my best friend - and actually been keeping up with it! - but this blog challenge has suffered. … Continue reading What a Whirlwind!
I love the concept of changing our perception by changing our thoughts and how that can affect our reality. The problem is that I am not good at remembering to use this idea this when I'm stressed, struggling and/or just plain down on myself. In my last post, I talked about how pricing in the … Continue reading Perception is Reality…Or is it?
