One author that comes up in our tea community very often is Emily Barnes, someone who has authored a number of books about tea and entertaining. Her books are wonderful, and she has a good friend and Sheri Torelli. Since Emily couldn't be on the show, she suggested we chat with Sheri, who is a speaker, organizer, successful author. She is the author of The Fast-Food Kitchen and co-author of 365 Ways to Organize Everything, More Hours In My Day (5th Revision) and Your Simple Guide to a Home-Based Business. Her articles appear in Chicken Soup as well as magazines and newsletters. She has appeared on radio and television talk shows around the country and Canada. Sheri has been a full-time home-based business owner for 25 years.
Sheri's three words that describes how she moves in the world are Humor, Encouragement, and Enthusiasm, and I think that's a great way to summarize today's discussion. Some of the topics we cover today:
- How to be organized when it comes to entertaining (and fitting it in with the rest of life's obligations)
- Understanding how intention plays into successful parties and gatherings
- How to show up successfully in all of life's relationships
- What lessons Sheri's learned around the dining table and over a cup of tea
- What are your "miracle minutes" and how can you take advantage of them?
We even talk about Sheri and Andy's favorite kitchen appliances for being a good host.
- Sheri is a co-author with a favorite author from the Plum Deluxe community, Emily Barnes. We call her the "chicken soup for the tea world." Check out Emily's books here.
