Welcome to Charting New Adventures!  My name is Renee and I have lived in the great state of Arizona since 1971.  I married my amazing husband in 1996.  We have one incredible daughter and our Poodle mix.

I enjoy spending time with family and friends especially when it includes coffee, tea, good food, and wine.  Creating memories is what it’s all about.

I earned my Master’s Degree in Counseling and after working in that field for a couple of years I realized that this wasn’t the career for me as I enjoyed chatting and listening a lot so I started to pursue a career in sales which enabled me to do both.

I like to work hard and am always willing and wanting to learn.  Maybe that’s why I have tried multiple careers and continue to want to learn things to better myself and be the best that I can be for myself and others.

entrepreneur, lifestyle, homeschool

My husband and I became Empty Nesters in 2021.  It’s a new season of life for us which has many joys and a lot of opportunities to learn!

I believe in the extraordinary potential of women who balance entrepreneurship, enriching lifestyles, excelling in homeschooling, and more. I created my website to provide a place where you can find the support and resources to succeed.

Empowering Entrepreneurs

Being an entrepreneur has always been in my blood.  My dad started his own plumbing company in the 70s and through his hard work and success, he inspired me to always be looking for ways to build my own business. 

I have also passed this passion on to my daughter who has had her own company since she was 10.

One of the many careers I tried was selling products on Amazon.  I was able to combine my passion for shopping, finding deals, and making money.  It was the perfect career for me!

I grew this company from the ground up and I grew my Amazon business to over 7 figures in sales all while I was still home-schooling my daughter.

Entrepreneurs are dynamic individuals and we are shaping our own path in the business world. I understand the challenges and opportunities that come with entrepreneurship as well as the challenges of raising a family while growing your business.

My goal is to offer you insights, strategies, and real-life success stories from women who are on the same entrepreneurial path.

Whether you’re starting your own business, scaling your current venture, or seeking inspiration to fuel your next big idea, my business section is your go-to resource.

Enriching Lifestyles

Life is more than just work; it’s about finding joy, balance, and fulfillment.

The lifestyle section is dedicated to helping you create a life that’s not just busy but truly meaningful. We explore topics ranging from self-care and personal development to travel and leisure.

Discover practical advice, tips, and inspiration to cultivate a lifestyle that nurtures your personal growth and enhances your overall well-being.

Excelling in Home-Schooling

In 2006 we decided to home-school our one and only.  This was a huge step of faith for us as I hardly knew anyone that home-schooled.  I also didn’t know one thing about how to get started.

Fast forward to now and I can honestly tell you that our home-school journey consistently changed throughout the years but through it all, I have zero regrets about the choice we made.

For the women who’ve chosen to homeschool their children, I recognize the immense responsibility and the rewarding journey it can be.

Our homeschooling section offers a wealth of resources, including curriculum recommendations, teaching strategies, and stories from experienced homeschooling moms. I aim to make your homeschooling experience as enriching and enjoyable as possible, equipping you with the tools and knowledge you need to excel in this important role.
