Join the #LiveBrilliant 30-Day Challenge

Bethany Jett, #LiveBrilliant challenge

What does it mean to “Live Brilliant”? I have a theory that by making better choices in five distinct areas (physically, emotionally, spiritually, intellectually, and financially), you can live a brilliant life. To test this theory, I’m creating the Live Brilliant checklist and starting a #LiveBrilliant30 Day Challenge. For the next 30 days, I’ll document […]

The Secret of Becoming a Better Leader

because most of us aren't doing it right

When you’re the solopreneur, every decision, task, and responsibility falls on your shoulders. Yours alone. In the past few months, I partnered with my best friend and started a corporation with her and merged my consulting and editing business with my literary agent’s company. Two corporations.  Two sets of clientele. Two teams. As we build our businesses […]

6 Skincare Secrets to Look 24 Forever

6 Skincare Secrets to Look 24 Forever @ BethanyJett.com

Just kidding. You can’t look like you’re twenty-four years old forever, unless you’re Gwyneth Paltrow or Cindy Crawford. Just kidding. You can. Both women have stringent skin care routines, and ladies, I promise you. If you take care of your skin, it will take care of you. Today is my birthday [cue Happy Birthday song] […]

The Vulnerability of Writing

vulnerability, bethanyjett.com

Writing = vulnerability. The publishing world is full of rejection, just like life. But in this literary arena, we aren’t rejected because of who we are. No. The rejection is of the outpourings of our souls. Or celebrated, depending on the subjectivity of the person reading our manuscript. It’s a gamble, the thrill of perfecting […]

What Language Do You Speak?

Day 1: Dr. Gary Chapman

Gary Chapman, 7 Day Family Challenege

I didn’t think Justin and I fought a lot when we were dating until we read The Five Love Languages by Dr. Gary Chapman. I realized I took it for granted when Justin would hold open car doors for me. After all, I was looking for a gentleman. What I realized was that everything Justin did for me […]

Through the Eyes of Hope, BethanyJett.com

Today is the culmination of months of work. I’m thrilled to be part of Through the Eyes of Hope: Love More, Worry Less, and See God in the Midst of Adversity, […]

Be the CEO of your Life

Be the CEO of Your Life; BethanyJett.com

Follow my blog with Bloglovin I spent New Year’s weekend redesigning a new Semi-Annual planner to add to the My Moments collection. My menfolk took a boys-only trip out-of-state and I was left blissfully alone, the house, the TV, the food to myself. Heaven. I made chicken pot pie with a biscuit-subbed-for-pie-crust topping, binged Hotel Hell […]

Shadowbox Worthy Gifts

Shadowbox Worthy Gifts, bethanyjett.com

It’s past my kids’ bedtime. They have their screens upstairs, so I know they’re not asleep. Honestly, I don’t really care that they’re still awake. Justin is laying across the ottoman, his legs outstretched, his head resting on our wingback chair as he reads some articles on his phone. I’m wedged between our couch’s chaise […]

The Shallow List of Thanks

BetJett's Friday Five

shallow list of thanks, bethany jett.com

I hope everyone had a great day yesterday, relaxing, working, reading, writing, eating…definitely eating…and perhaps a little pre-Black Friday shopping. We had a lovely stress-free day and it was wonderful, as was the cornbread casserole, which was the first side dish to be completely obliterated. My poor beautiful green bean casserole was not shown the […]
