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 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.

You are what you read; what you choose to fill your mind with has a great impact on who you are as a person. As Oscar Wilde put it, “It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you’ll be when you can’t help it.”

“Our mind is like a computer in that it accepts all the information we and others pour into it, good and bad alike. If we don’t like what we’re getting back, we simply have to change the programming.” – Barbara

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.

This mobile-friendly site has easy navigation with rich content that can be viewed on any digital device. If using a cell phone, however, 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.

For an overview of articles in 14 life-related topic categories, visit the ARTICLES Table of Contents page. Here you’ll be linked to my newest content and dozens of my most popular and timeless articles, reports, and PDF documents, all updated for today’s times.
