What Are YOU Selling?

Everything … and I mean everything … is selling. The food you ate for dinner last night came to your table because someone sold something. The fuel you put in your car has to be sold to the gas station and then again to the consumer. The diapers you put on your baby had to be sold to someone or your baby would be diaperless. The list goes on to infinity. Literally.

If someone had told me years ago that I’d be selling anything, I would have laughed uncontrollably. Why? Because a “salesperson” conjures up a vision of the old snake oil salesman. Sadly, some people still think that way. As Zig Ziglar would say, that’s ‘stinkin’ thinkin.’ Zig devoted himself to raising the image of salespeople everywhere. I admire his work and tireless devotion.

Our buddy, Zig, also said “Money isn’t everything, but it is reasonably close to oxygen on the ‘gotta have it’ scale.” Until we somehow magically no longer have a 02.28.18valuableneed to pay for things, money is still it.

So what did I sell when I began my career in the staffing industry? Peace of mind. The peace of mind that comes with hiring the right employees for the job. It’s what I did for many, many companies. The ripple effect was amazing! The company was delighted and so was the new employee. I made sure of it. Was it challenging at times? Yes. Was it rewarding? Yes, because the rewards outstripped the challenges by a mile.

I’m no longer in the staffing business, but I’m still in the “peace of mind” business. And I absolutely love it. How cool is it to be able to show someone how to bring their standard of living up, providing them with more disposable income and more freedom? In my humble opinion, it just doesn’t get any better than this. I love being able to show people how to lower their financial stress.

Am I selling you something right now? No. Not unless you’re in the market for peace of mind. Fill out the contact form here if that’s what you want.

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

 

 

 

 

The Promise

With the promise of Spring around the corner, the Iris bulbs in the yard are beginning to break through.

This image is one I took in 2015, in keeping with my promise that no flowers will come into the house without being photographed. I simply added some thoughts to the image.

Did I mention we have snow flurries here today? I’m not a fan – haha! Just sayin.’

Wishing you all a remarkable Spring!

You Have a 5-Second Window

“You have a 5-second window in which you can move from idea to action before your brain kicks into full gear and sabotages any change in behavior.” – Mel Robbins, author of The 5 Second Rule.

Watch this powerful video about it. (I know … you’re rolling your eyes about me posting another video. Haha!) But you know I’m giving you the good stuff, right? 🙂

What Does That Mean Exactly?

At the end of my posts, I write a simple phrase – Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

It’s a simple reminder that we are all walking each other home. It’s about the journey and the souls we meet along the way. Nothing happens by chance. Everyone in our lives is there to be a lesson or a blessing. Some will be there briefly. Some will stay for a long time. Pay attention to the lesson or the blessing. We’re in this thing called Life together.

So what does Namaste’ mean exactly?  (Hint: it’s about love).

Have a blessed and beautiful life, dear ones. Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

The Surging Epidemic

What??? Another video, you say? (Hey, it’s my blog so I get to do what I want. Hehe).

But this is important, so listen up, dear ones. In lieu of Throwback Thursday, please watch this important video (9 min. 43 sec.) It affects all human beings.

Jimmy is a smart guy. I really like what he puts out there. It resonates. Listen to what he has to say. Maybe it will inspire you, too. And if you’re so inclined, share it with those you love.

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

Interview with God

In lieu of doing another Throwback Thursday, I wanted to share this video that I received from a friend this morning. I had seen it before but today with all that’s going on with hurricanes, fires, politics, and the world at large, it was such a profound reminder.

I believe in synchronicity … there are no accidents. This was given to me again for a reason. Enough said.

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

Life

My brother wasn’t the kind of guy to buy presents for people. He hated shopping and would rather give someone money to buy what they wanted. I always teased him about that 🙂

For my birthday in 2010 he gave me this necklace, just a few months before he passed away. I remember when I opened it I told him how much I loved it and he said, “I hope you always will, kid.” I was his little sister and he always called me that. Unless he was mad at me – LOL!

Looking back I think he knew that we were going to lose him and that his wish for me was to really live my life. I believe he knows that I am.

One of the main reasons I started this blog six years ago was to chronicle my life so that when I’m gone, my kids and grandkids will know what I was about. Maybe my life will be an inspiration for them to live theirs doing things and loving people that make their spirits soar.

Entrances and Exits

Most everyone is familiar with the phrase “grand entrance.”

When a baby is born, she or he makes a grand entrance. When the bride begins her walk down the aisle, she makes a grand entrance. When Scarlett O’Hara famously walked down the stairs of Tara, she made a grand entrance.

When we leave a room, a relationship, a job, or even a movie theater, we’re making an exit. (At least in the movie theater the Exit sign is clearly marked – ha!)

When we pass from this world to what’s waiting for us on the other side, we make another exit.

Entrances and exits are simply beginnings and endings. Hopefully our energy imprints will bring joy to the space between our beginnings and endings … for the highest good of all concerned. 12.29.12.flag

P.S. – Happy Independence Day to all of my U.S. friends! May you find new beginnings that feed your spirit.

Today’s Generation

Many senior citizens are living in part on a pension which most of today’s generation will never have. I was fortunate enough to work for companies in which advancement was possible, that offered benefits packages, full-time, permanent employment, all kinds of fun perks, the whole whiz-bang.

05.27.17manonbenchI never knew how good I had it. Why? Because today’s generation has none of that. They survive by their wits. And you wonder why so many are still living at home? It’s called communal living. Banding together for survival in a world designed by people who don’t care.

We nimble humans are now coming out of our burrows to survey the damage. Not only are our youth the victims of these changes. So are the sick and the aged.

It’s now our job, as the ones who’ll survive the impact of economic woes, to rebuild the world.

To rebuild it for our children (and grandchildren) in ways that they may not know about. They won’t know about benefits plans, pensions, one-job families, and the caring for the worker that we used to know. Few of them can afford to go to a chiropractor or, in some cases, even a dentist.

We may have to supply a piece of the puzzle as the last ones alive with memory of the social-safety net we had in the 50’s – 70’s.

I’m supplying my piece by showing young, middle-aged, and senior citizens how to earn more money from home, and have the safety net they need … in a life-changing way. The time is NOW!

The best part is that it’s free for the asking. More information HERE
