Ask and It Is Given – Inspired Action

September 17, 2018

Most recently, I was listening to Esther Hicks, and one of her best-known books is called Ask and It Is Given. Now, I’ve heard the phrase “inspired action” many times, and probably for many years. But the true meaning and importance of “inspired action” didn’t hit me until now.

That’s what I love about repetition – when you read the same book again and again, you pick up different things each times based on where you are in your life, how you see the world, your growth since you last read it, and so many other factors. Read More

What is a brand influencer?

September 9, 2018

It’s confusing to a lot of people, because the word ‘influencer’ is being bantered around a lot as a catchphrase these days!

It is important to understand the distinction between the types of influencers so that you can best harness your power and influence, and stay on top of what’s going on in the world of marketing and branding so you can decide what kind of brand influencer you want to be, and which brands and brand influencers you might want to follow or align yourself with.

Every influencer has a responsibility to be authentic, be in integrity, and lead with relevancy. But what kind of influencer are you?

While there are a lot of different types of brand influencers, I want to share three I find most interesting: Read More

Are you “giving up” or “surrendering” to your business?

October 17, 2017

What is the difference between “giving up” and “surrendering” to new possibilities for your business?

I had the most interesting conversation with a friend the other day. He was talking about “surrendering” to what happens in life and how that is so different than giving up.

Immediately, I thought of entrepreneurs who have given up on reaching their dreams, creating financial success, or of becoming an influencer in social media.

And, I found this topic to be of such interest to me, that I ended up writing about it in the chapter of my book titled “Intentions.” Let’s just say that is a working title for now.

So, here are my insights… Read More

Are you Living on Purpose?

June 22, 2017

I’ve been a little “pushed” for time in the last two days. This is what happens when I have two trips planned within a few days of each other. I just came back from NY for the Book Expo and the trip was one of the most productive and fun trips to NY in a while – and I am so grateful for meeting such great literary agents and book publishers!

I can tell you unequivocally that publishers are looking for new and fresh work, new authors both for fiction and non-fiction. In fact, my clients with me in NY found several interested publishers, asking them to send them their book proposal…wahoo!!!

Writing a book is such a sacred opportunity to share a story, share your life, and share your message so that others may be entertained, helped, healed or uplifted in some way. Read More

Words matter!

March 14, 2017

I only needed about two solid hours to complete my book chapter summaries, so I went to “my” Starbucks to do two hours of focused work.

There were no private tables available, so I went to a long table that had an electrical outlet for my computer cord, but nowhere to rest my legs on the tall stool. I can live with that for two hours.

But, what I found I can’t live with is the guy next to me with cool ear phones talking to “whomever.” I have no idea who, or even if, he was talking to someone.

I got up to order some green tea, (after staring at and considering the bagel holes with cream cheese), and saw that my coffee shop “neighbor” was playing a game on his computer and is evidently talking to himself…or the screen…and almost every other word he utters starts with the letter “f.” Read More
