Frequently Asked Questions

Deanna Schultz | One Step Woman

So, why did I start a blog and what is a typical day like for me?

I answer those questions and more right here! For a deeper introduction, read more ABOUT ME. 

Why did you start the blog?

I am a child of divorce, victim of molestation at the hands of my paternal grandfather, wife of a veteran suffering from PTSD.

I am partially blind, suffered a cancer scare which resulted in a full hysterectomy only to find out three months later I had Stage 3b Beast Cancer. 

My father died in August 2016 of a suspicious death and I work tirelessly to find the answers related to his death.

With my experiences and the chance at a renewed life, I want to share the challenges I have faced and overcome. 

Sharing my life experiences along with creating I life a love and sharing with others is what I am meant to do!

 

Where do you live?   

I live in Victorville, California with my husband of 26 years, Wayne.  We have a beautiful, grown daughter Hannah who lives in Arizona.  

 

Besides being a writer, what do you do for a living?

Wayne and I have owned a property inspection business , SCHULTZ PROPERTY INSPECTIONS, for 11 years. 

I am a licensed real estate broker owning SPS Realty Group for many years before closing that part of our business portfolio when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. 

 

How can I start a blog?

I am not a blogging expert, but I learned from taking a class with Shannon Mattern, Thistlewood Farms, Livinglucurto.com and The Design Twins Teach.   These are not affiliate links. I have learned so much from their classes that I like to share them with you. 

 

What is a typical day like for you?

No day is “typical” , but I try to block time so that each aspect of our business, blog and home life are balanced. 

Our business is based out of our home so the phone is almost always on. We occasionally get calls as late as 8:00pm, but I shut the phone off during dinner. 

I usually wake at 7am. I get ready for my day by showering, getting fully dressed with makeup. (I find this sets up my day). Wayne usually makes us breakfast for us and he heads out the door. I clean the kitchen, lay out what we are having for dinner, take my vitamins and prescriptions and head to the “office” which is a loft space upstairs. 

I typically work on business on Mondays (marketing, Calendars, etc). Tuesday, Wednesdays, Thursdays are for blog work. Friday is personal finance and something fun outside the house. Saturday is reading or hanging around the house. 

I wouldn’t trade the blessed life I have for anything!  

 

Where can I find the items to purchase from your home?

I have a SHOP! You can find all my favorite things!

 

How can we work together?

I collaborate with brands and products that I would personally use in my home. You can CONTACT ME to see if we are a good fit! 

I hope I answered a few of your questions on why I started a blog and what is a typical day for me. I am so excited you are here!

I hope I can inspire you to CREATE your best life!
