Need Help Propagating Your Pothos Plant in Water?

As much as I love shopping for new plants, propagating them has become my absolute favorite way to grow my indoor garden collection. The Pothos plant is where I started because everything I read on the matter suggested that this plant was relatively easy to propagate.

Thus far, I have had great success with my cuttings but I've spoken to several people who haven't had quite the same experience and have wondered why.

While at market this past Saturday, I realized I had been glossing over an extremely popular phrase among many who find their way into my booth.

"I'm no good with plants. I always kill them!"

Or some variation of that line. Anyone who has taken care of plants is familiar with some of the struggle involved in keeping them alive. But it's easier than you think!

For any of you who might be feeling the same way about houseplants, I thought I would go over some tips to help you overcome that fear.

Actually Making Those Goals Happen

First of all, thanks to everyone who showed up to support Theory Beyond Design during the Lexington Makers Market this Saturday. We are two for two on fun-filled mornings spent meeting amazing new people and growing the business! The experience has me reflecting on some personal (and business) goals of mine and that's what this week's blog is all about.

I have really come to dislike the concept of New Year's Resolutions mainly because of my own failures in the past to see them through. But it's not just me. This whole concept has turned into somewhat of a collective joke.

Theory Beyond Design survived its VERY FIRST TIME at the Lexington Makers Market and we couldn't have done it without you! Thanks so much for you support.

We are less than two weeks away from my first market date and ALL of the anxiety that comes with working in a partnership or group setting is starting to weigh on me. In this week's bloglet, I share a little bit about the positives and negatives of it and how it's affecting me as we get closer and closer to market launch.

Working Smart

This week's bloglet is about well...the bloglets, how they came to be, and what I'm changing to help me wade through finding time to build Theory Beyond Design.

If you've been following Theory Beyond Design for a while, you know I had a gardening blog. You also know that I wasn't really been keeping up with it as regularly as I would like and that's because well...writing that stuff takes time. Time I don't always have.

What's Really Important Here?

I went for a walk and a podcast I was listening to inspired me to reflect on my purpose for pursuing the entrepreneurial lifestyle. This week's bloglet was inspired by that reflection and my endeavor to be transparent about going through this entire process of starting Theory Beyond Design while also building a healthy lifestyle and creating a life centered around my personal priorities. It is all about the WHY.
