I am reading this excellent book The Creative Entrepreneur by Lisa Sonora Beam (a recommendation from Kelly Rae) that is really an amazing book for the right- brain dominant person (like me and maybe, you!!) Prior to reading this book, I had thought that I was exclusively right brained and has almost no left brain capability. I mean, I have always uttered these words as far back as I can remember (I am so bad at math!!). But there is a really neat exercise in this book that really forced me to examine the reality of the situation. And this is what I discovered:

I am not as hopelessly bad at left-brained activities as I had thought. I love (and excel ) at baking and that requires a lot of measuring. I am very good at accounting (numbers) and even though I am not tech -savvy, I did manage to set up every aspect of my blog myself! I also installed a 3 column template for my blog!!! (using the awesome tutorial here). I also love to plan everything from inception to finished product whether it's a painting or special theme dinner. I understand verbal and written instructions very well, write lists for everything and love details and facts (all left brained characteristics). So many women feel the exact same way I do-I hear it all the time. But I bet if you examine this in depth, you will find that you are really good at many left brained activities. If you sew, scrapbook, bake, cook, plan, photograph, do digital anything, keep schedules, run a household...then maybe you, too, are a lot more left -brain oriented than you thought!
That being said...I am still predominantly a right-brainer!!

P.S. I am tinkering with the look of my blog; please bear with me:)
