DON’T LOOK BACK, THAT’S NOT THE DIRECTION YOU ARE GOING.
Do you have your foot on the accelerator and your eyes in the rear view mirror?
You will certainly crash.
Are you trying to move into the NEW each day, move forward by looking backwards? How can you create, imagine, manifest new success, learning, if you are constantly looking back, behind you? Sure, it is necessary to learn and grow from our past, yet, the best solutions and positive intent are created by “looking ahead” while consciously standing in the present moment. Continue reading
TELLING YOUR STORY IS YOUR SUPER POWER!
Your “story” is what you are telling folks 24/7. Does it hold magnetic power, or does it feel lack luster, no emotion?
Telling your story or “networking” is much more than exchanging your email, text number, title, business name or niche. What you are constantly connecting from and with are your actions, your emotions, body language, your message of your persona, and your actual being. Most of your connecting is on a subconscious level, energy of YOU is connecting with all the other stories around you. Continue reading

IS YOUR BUT IN THE WAY?
Have you looked at your “but” lately?
Is your “but” worthy of recognition, unabashedly mentionable?
I bring this up is due to a recent experience that occurred on my flight back from Hawaii. I stood up to get something out of my bag in the overhead and had it fall under my assigned seat. With my head searching between my seat and the back of the seat in front of me, on my hands and knees in the small aisle…I heard a female voice laugh out to me “Excuse me, but your butt is in the way” claimed a light-hearted flight attendant holding a tray of water. Continue reading
THE BIG PURPOSE IN HONORING YOUR “SMALL CHANGE”.
“Small change”…taken literally, most of us have this rattling in our pockets, purses, in jars, in our car consoles.
What’s this small change “worth”? Small change is usually referred to as “loose change”, a hassle, not worth counting OR keeping. We toss it into charity boxes, tip jars…we get rid of “it”. No value, not worth our time. Continue reading

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WORKING FROM THE “YOU” VS “ME”?
In these times where current societal system and millennial generation discussion is marked with words such as entitlement, lack of accountability, disposable, and “it’s all about me”…is there a way to connect with value, being valued, by expressing our unique self, personality, our purpose?
Yes! Finding and offering “you” vs. “me” is the solution. We are all connected to each other in a natural and very aware manner, and that is the pure “you” for each and every one of us. That is THE connection that honors our connection to everything; our unique purpose. Relating and communicating via the essence of our purpose, connection becomes selfless and not selfish!

YOU are a work of art; your imagination connects you to the expression of the art you have come to accomplish right here and now. Imagine that, you are a pure work of art, a true artist. All of us are artists, we just have different ways of creating, expressing, thinking, feeling and innovating.
The art of being your “why” is what makes you a true artist. And, yes, that is my “art” in the main visual…my Heart Art expresses its joy by translating “essence” into painting form…I shine by showing what shines in what is all around me (people’s hearts too!). Continue reading
IS YOUR LIFE, YOUR BUSINESS WELL NOURISHED?
Think about it…how are you feeding your life, livelihood…portions of fresh “true to you ingredients”, or servings of attitude from others’ plates, leftovers, not of your craving? We all create our unique smorgasbord of what to consume and to be grown by, essentially what we feel good and nourished by doing and being. There are ingredients that you require that nourish that unique YOU, your authentic purpose…and these are different for each and every one of us. Continue reading

In a sea of unique perceptions, conforming assumptions, labels, and rules, how do you share your unique vision, give it clarity, form trusted partnerships, rally support for your vision or journey?
The answer is to know what your passion or purpose is on such a gut level that everything you do, say, speak, share, comes from that unique point of view; that “you” that holds enthusiasm, surety, leadership. Find, then invite others to discover your gift of purpose…the why of you, the power of showing up in authentic manner. Continue reading
HOW TO BRIDGE COMMUNICATION “CHASMS” WITH CAREFRONTATION VS CONFRONTATION.
Communication springs from emotional messaging…you have a choice of positive Carefrontation: trust and open (win / win), or negative Confrontation: force and accusatory actions (loose / loose).
I am writing this blog to help share positive points learned from a recent experience of mine. Just found closure in a copyright infringement situation where I found myself receiving a strong confrontation communication strategy that evolved into passive aggressive stalled out mode. Due to this non caring confrontational “style”, separation of what each individual desired increased, stuck got more stuck, and false promises resulted in failure. Continue reading
