Bittersweet Birthdays

It’s not something I talk about often, the loss of my parents. But there are times when it’s foremost in my mind. Birthdays–mine, my children’s, and this week, the company’s, do not pass without my wishing my mom and dad were here. The Loss of My Mother Long, long before Cookie Text, LLC, I was […]

What Are You Selling Anyway?

The question was posed today As a business owner and salesperson, do you know what you are really selling? Well, unbelievably delicious cookie cakes, of course…but clearly the person asking the question was looking for something more meaningful. So I thought for a bit. What Are You Selling?

Cookies at College

A Mom-trepreneur Perspective Though we didn’t launch Cookie Text specifically as a college-student service, we are in close proximity to four Universities (ODU, CNU, W&M, HamptonU).

Little Victory

I had to shut down the shop and farm my boys out to friends last week. We moved the daughter/niece to Atlanta for her first real job. It was a quick trip, so it didn’t make sense to throw the boys in the car for 20 hours round trip when the hang-time in Atlanta was […]

Struggle or Success?

I read a quote by former NBA player Chris Herren recently. He said that more people were impressed with his sobriety following addiction than his amazing career as a Denver Nugget and Boston Celtic.

It’s a Small World

Late Friday Night It’s Friday evening and my business line rings with a call from Texas. “Good evening, this is Jeanne,” see, since it’s my cell and my business phone, I answer any unknown calls like that. “Hi,” says a slightly strained voice, “is this the bakery?” “Yes, this is Cookie Text,” I reply. “First […]

Can you make a $5 cookie cake?

Prologue:   Since this blog was originally published we’ve gained some fans and some readers…we thought it was worth re-visiting, especially since the Juggle for Hunger event is tomorrow at CNU. Read through to the epilogue for what’s changed since this post…;)    I lost both of my parents at a fairly young age, so […]
