Ask + Connect + Collaborate = Success!

We live in exciting times. Over the last couple of decades, we’ve shifted from “me” to “we”. Competition has been replaced by connection and collaboration. Gone are the days when winning was the most important thing. In today’s global economy, we’ve evolved from the experiences of our past and are now looking for something deeper, something more sustainable and something more meaningful. Being authentic, building trust and sharing resources to create situations where everyone wins far exceeds the “me, me, me” philosophy that was dominant in the 80’s and 90’s. This past week I had the perfect tangible example of… Read more.

Make Your Small Business a Success

Growing a small business can seem really scary sometimes. Yet I find that the fear is also part of the exhilaration! Personal satisfaction is created when you stand up to what scares you and do it anyway! When your WHY is big enough, nothing – absolutely NOTHING – can stop you from attaining your goal. So often it’s the easy, simple, seemingly meaningless solutions that offer the greatest impact! You face a huge problem and mistakenly imagine that only a huge solution can solve it. Not so. Simple things done consistently are what truly matter. To share an example, let… Read more.

Just Be Grateful

Each morning when we wake up we are given the most important choice of the day- for it sets the tone for the entire day. We can choose to wake up worried about bills and the drama of life, or we can consciously shift our energy and perception and count our blessings. It’s impossible to focus on both at the same time. Gratitude is the fastest way to move from where we are to where we want to be. Gratitude alone holds the power to shift our energy to one of possibility. Gratitude holds the key to creating the future… Read more.

Ten Things That Inspire Me

Inspiration: the action or power of moving the intellect or emotions. What inspires you? What inspires you to be a better person or to seek the unknown? It can be something as simple as a budding flower or as profound as an insight that changes the way you view life. In these times with the wavering economy, the far reaching oil spill, and wars that are tearing families apart, we can all certainly use a little inspiration! Let’s start at the very beginning! Babies: There is something about the innocence of a baby, their tiny, chubby perfectly developed fingers and… Read more.

You Are Desperately Needed

Today the Grandmothers woke me with this message and asked me to send it out. Please forward it on so we reach as many people as possible. “We ask you to cast, anchor, and hold the Net of Light steady for the Gulf of Mexico,” the Grandmothers said. “This crisis is affecting the entire world, and humanity is asleep. Wake up!” they cried. “Animals are dying, plants are dying, and your Mother is writhing in agony. If you hold the Net of Light steady at this time you will help stave off further catastrophe. “You have been lulled into a… Read more.

Ancestry and Connectivity: We Are Family

What do a servant, an unwed mother, a cigar maker, a farmer, bastard children, Counts and Countesses and a mother of 17 children all have in common? How about people from England, Germany, Switzerland, France, The Netherlands and even Tibet? The answer is easy- ME! I’ve recently researched my ancestry through Ancestry.com and found that I am the descendant of all of these people and many more. I have discovered that I am the human version of a mutt. Through ancestry.com, I’ve managed to trace my roots back through Europe- with some lines going back to the mid 900’s! I… Read more.

Conscious Language: The Power of Our Words

Our language has great power. It is an integral part of bringing what we desire into our lives, and also is a key element for bringing what we don’t want into our lives as well. Many times, we’re not even conscious of what we’re doing or saying and wonder why we’re not getting the results we desire. The Law of Attraction states that what we focus on grows, whether it’s conscious or not, or intentional or not. We’ve all had the experience of thinking about buying a new car and all of a sudden, it seems like we see that… Read more.
