When @luciatran and I realized how similar our (Asian) parents are. ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜ Had a great brunch by the window @lincolnpasadena, I cleaned up my bowl of Spam&Egg.

We often take things personally (it's normal, our businesses are such big part of our lives!) that we either are afraid to get hurt or afraid to hurt others and ended up not speaking up. We all have our businesses to run - some deals might work out and some don't. If we all just be honest and be up front we'd all save so much time (time is money!). You don't have the budget? Start by saying - "I'm a small business and I don't have enough budget, but I can offer you this." You do your work in a certain way? Educate potential clients from the beginning. Don't wait until after 4-5 email exchanges, a meeting or even after the actual work is done to hold grudge and to say something. It's only work, if another person is hurt by us being honest and up front then they shouldn't take things too personal. #365bonniestips

Today was a good day. Had meetings all day, which were all inspiring - love talking ideas with people. And then in between meetings I walked around the streets with my film camera and took pictures.

Took my baby girl to lunch @thelinehotel the other day. // #stokke #stokkebaby

You are overthinking it. The more you think the less you'll achieve and the more worries you'll have. When it's good, it's enough. #365bonniestips

All black kind of day.

Tip No. 045/365

There are dreams we want to achieve and we'd say, "someday." There are things we want to do and we'd say, "someday." Someday might never come, someday isn't definite. It's time we get serious and push ourselves a little more. Have a personal project? Set a deadline. Want to save enough to start a business? Set a date. Dreaming about buying your own home? Set a date. Having a goal is important, it gives you direction and it helps make things happen. Even when dreams seem too big and too far away, set a date anyway because it's about planting the seed, a reminder and the thought of possibility. #365bonniestips

Guiding Light

16 burgers from @burgerim_usa to go. // #bonnietsanglaeats #burgers

Dropped by @kellygolightly and @fredbaby13's #villagolightly to see their new amazing homes and to show support for @ohjoy and @sarahshermansamuel (love the rooms they designed!). I was going to take baby Henri with me, but James and I flipped a coin and baby stayed home with daddy (๐Ÿ˜), so I had a good full hour to take in everything. Congrats, Kelly and Klaus! I'll be visiting again with my girls for some pool time. ๐Ÿ˜˜ // #bonnietsanginteriors #modernismweek @modernism_week @christopherkennedyinc @traditionalhome @cahomeanddesign

You've gone through so many challenges, learned the lessons, you're inspired by all the great entrepreneur stories, advices come to you just as you needed them... The universe is answering to you and provided you with all the tools, but you need to do something with them. What are you waiting for? There is no excuse for anything, it's rather you'll do it or not. #365bonniestips
