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 and independent publisher, and author's consultant. This Christian-oriented ad-free site reflects her professional and personal interests, philosophy, and 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.

“There are things only you can do, and YOU are alive to do them. In the great orchestra we call Life, you have an instrument and a song, and you owe it to God to play them both sublimely.” –Max Lucado

“Life is fleeting. But if you live your life in hope, hope that you can make a difference somehow, and you strive to succeed, then your life will last forever and you will never be forgotten.” –Samuel Johnson, author of “A Dictionary of the English Language” (1755), the most influential and idiosyncratic lexicon ever written

Hello, and Welcome!

After 21 years on my former 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.

Enjoy the Site! And thanks for recommending it to anyone who may need the help or information offered. After so many years on the internet I’m essentially starting all over again where the search engines are concerned, given that I had to use a variation of my original domain name for this site. Thus any mention you can give me on your website, Facebook page, or other social networking site will be most appreciated.

Let me know if you do this so I can return the favor.
