    You Can't Do It

    crystalstine.me 22 Jan '18, 1pm

    I’m sitting in Starbucks today for some work and writing before a meeting. This is where I wrote “Holy Hustle” and every time I sit in these incredibly uncomfortable wooden chairs, with their lack of leg room and phenomenally loud squealing noises as they move across the floor, I thin...

    Time Management Tip : Learn to say “no” to good to leave room for great Maybe, like me, you find yourself afraid to say “no” to a request, opportunity, or addition to your to-do list because you wonder if this is your ONE chance to do the thing. Maybe, like me, your constant “yes” is ...

  • Establish Your Plans

    crystalstine.me 08 Oct '17, 3am

    There are a lot of mornings when I wake up and feel frozen, overwhelmed by everything that needs to be accomplished. Lists of must-do and should-do and like-to-do and what-they’re-doing run through my head and I have no idea where to start. What are my priorities? What actually needs ...

  • Time Management: Holy Hustle Style

  • How Do We Balance It All?

    crystalstine.me 27 Sep '17, 2pm

    A few weeks ago I sent out an email asking you to share what you’re struggling with most right now. Hundreds of you responded and it was an honor and a privilege to hear from you. I suppose I shouldn’t have been surprised when the number one thing so many of you shared was the same as...

  • Plans to Prosper

    crystalstine.me 07 Oct '17, 2pm

    Social media is an amazing way to share your story and the work God has given you to do, but it can honestly be a massive time suck. I’ll be honest and tell you that the first thing I do in the morning is reach for my phone to scroll through Instagram. I love the community there, but ...

  • Super Short Summer Book Reviews

    crystalstine.me 02 Aug '17, 2pm

    I have a confession to make. I love reviewing books. I love getting books in the mail, I love getting a sneak peek of a book before it’s available to the public, and I love getting the chance to decide for myself if I love it or not before the internet and “best seller” lists start bo...

  • Creativity in the Small Spaces

    I met Emily through the hope*writers group and have loved getting to know her. She has an incredible passion to encourage moms, and she has written a very special guest post just for YOU, my holy hustle crew. For all of us who feel overwhelmed and aren’t sure how we’re supposed to “do...
