Using Your Fear As Fuel

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

Most of us are taught that being a strong, successful person means that you don’t entertain fear and you certainly don’t show it. Probably because wallowing in it can be draining and can rob us of our joy, self confidence, energy and our power. I know this to be true as I lived with anxiety (fear) for the first 30+ years of my life. I did not know it was my normal state until I experienced NOT having it for…

The Power Of Changing Your Mind

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

Did you see the movie “Fences”? I loved it! It is based on a powerful play by August Wilson. I loved that even though it was a movie, I felt like I was watching a play. No cinematic fluff. I loved that the filmmaker chose to keep it simple and NOT to use all of the tools available through current technology. It was carried solely on the strength of the brilliant acting (Viola Davis won the academy award for Best…

THIS Is Why I Meditate!

By | Personal Growth, Success | 2 Comments

 Last week myself, my husband and my youngest son were heading to Jamaica for the weekend to attend my nieces wedding. We had a 7 am flight. It’s always a struggle to get my teenage son out the door that early in the morning, but after much nagging and shouting, we finally made it to the Baltimore airport at 5:30 am. I attempt to get us checked in, while my husband parks the car, but the kiosk keeps spitting out…

The Greatest Gifts

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success | No Comments

Monday was a ‘doozie’ 🙁 I woke up feeling anxious. So I listened to a guided meditation called “fear clear”. Then I picked up a book I’m currently enjoying: “The Book of Knowing and Worth” by Paul Selig. It didn’t take long before the voices in my head started reminding me that it was Monday and I “should” get up and “get to work”. Traditionally, Mondays are the day I work ‘on’ my business (marketing, planning) , not ‘in’ it…

How to Get Your Business The Attention (and money) It Deserves 

By | Business Growth, Success | No Comments

Todays post is a guest post by creative muse, copywriter and writer Giovanna Marcus Q: How do you get that stratospheric leap you’ve been wanting? A: Stand out in your marketing! It’s no secret that putting out attention-grabbing, crave-worthy, and consistent content is the way to build your sphere of raving fans (just like a home cooked meal is the way to my heart). But before you get to the point, there are a few things that may be standing in…

The Power of Language: Finding The “Right” Way To Talk About What You Do

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

The effective and powerful use of language is an art. The words we use have the power to heal or to harm. One word, one sentence – said with a certain emphasis – can create a sonic boom in someone’s awareness. It can attract or repel. It can open you up or shut you down. It can make the sale or kill it. How many times do we get caught up in trying to say things the “right” way? How many…

10 Things You Need To Know To Be A Deliberate Creator

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

  What is a “Deliberate Creator”? A person who consciously creates the circumstances of their lives using an understanding of the Universal Laws. Imagine being able to design your life. To know you have the power to manifest anything you want. To have your life go well all the time. To have control over your mind and your body. It IS possible! Yogi’s and Yogini’s have done it for a long time. Many western scientific studies have documented the mind/body…

A Hero’s Journey

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success | No Comments

  I first met Lizel when I moved to Maryland in 2008. Her striking eyes were a window to a beautiful soul. What I also saw, was a protective wall of energy she had built around her. As an intuitive healer and empath, I often perceive what is not obvious to others. Lizel simultaneously loved and hated that I could see behind her well constructed masks and sophisticated defense mechanisms.  It was also the very reason she hired me as…

The Ultimate Surrender

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | 5 Comments

Last week I got this cryptic text message from a friend: When I finally figured out it was not an email she was referring to (lol) I checked my mailbox outside and found a huge box that contained two boxes of a brand of Jamaican ginger tea (that I had enjoyed while visiting with her in Key West) and a beautiful piece of Coral that I had admired in a gift shop down by the pier as we were “doing…

What Got You Here, Won’t Get You There

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

Today is day #23 of a 100 day exercise commitment I’m doing. What that means is, I am choosing to move my body for a minimum 30 minutes EVERY day – whether I feel like it or not. I’m actually not doing it to lose weight or be healthier (although it will probably result in both) This is an exercise in strengthening my ability to truly COMMIT to something. Really commit. Not half ass, lying-to-myself, pretending-I’m-really-committed-but-letting-it-slide-if-it-gets-hard-or-inconvenient, or, I’ll-get-to-it-tomorrow, kind of…
