Information & Inspiration

For all those who are striving for happiness and
success in their personal and professional lives.

Self-employed at home for most of her adult life, Barbara Brabec continues to move in new directions as an author, independent publisher, and author's consultant. This ad-free site reflects her professional and personal interests, philosophy, and Christian beliefs.

Looking for a new perspective on dealing with various life and business-related issues? Want information you can trust from an acclaimed writer experienced in every topic she writes about? Then you've come to the right place.

“Knowledge is accessible in volumes never before imagined, and yet wisdom is tragically illusive.  Material prosperity and riches have raised our life expectancy and standard of living and yet many people are plagued with a sense of perpetual jealousy and impending doom. This is the dual reality of our age." – Terry James, Christian author and commentator

“The aging mind has a bagful of nasty tricks, one of which is to tuck names and words away in crannies where they are not immediately available." – E. B. White

Hello, and Welcome!

After 21 years on my former home business domain, I opened this new site in late 2021 so I could continue to encourage and help others through my writing and professional services for years to come.

Join my mailing list
to receive my monthly email Brabec Bulletin
and my new mid-month “TIDBITS” issue.

This mobile-friendly site has easy navigation with rich content that can be viewed on any digital device. If using a cell phone, viewing in horizontal mode will make the reading easier since it shows the button bar with drop-down menu pages and sidebar content all in one frame.

Visit the ARTICLES Table of Contents page for content in 14 life-related topic categories. Here you’ll be linked to my newest content and dozens of my most popular and timeless articles, reports, and PDF documents, all relative to current times. 

Featured Articles
