Do You Want to Write a Book?

inspired purpose Aug 29, 2020

Have you ever said, “Someday, I’m going to write a book!” 

But “Someday” never comes…

Or perhaps you shared a great story about your life and your friend said “You should write a book!”

Sound familiar? You are not alone. Many of us share this experience. I went through this for many years.

If you are anything like me, you’ve overcome a lot of difficulty in your life and along the way you’ve gained some wisdom. Writing is the perfect way to share that wisdom.

Whether you write a book, or write a blog that becomes a book, it’s good to get started. The world needs your wisdom!

Here’s the good news! Writing a book is easier than it seems, especially if you love to talk!

 

Getting Started

Sitting and staring at a keyboard for hours can be frustrating to say the least. Many of us have great ideas until we sit down to write or type. Then our brains go blank…

Luckily, there are ways around this. But...

Just Who Do You Think You Are!?!

self-love Aug 04, 2020

Has anyone ever said this to you?

Think about it! This statement can be interpreted both positively and negatively… right?

 

Negative

If someone says this to you in a shaming or dismissive tone, then something you are doing is threatening to them. Their comment is an attempt to suppress or control your behavior.

As an adult, you might just brush it off. However if you heard this as a child, you may be afraid to fully show up. You may be playing small. Sound familiar?

I spent a majority of my life playing small. I had very low self-esteem. I was afraid to be seen. After many years of healing work, I came across a profound quote by Marianne Williamson, I was liberated by the sentence, “It’s not our darkness but our light that frightens us.”

Over the years, I’ve tested and developed numerous techniques and practices to move through fear and show up fully.

Could fear be stopping you from sharing your wisdom? We all need to find ways to push through...

Love: The New Competitive Edge

love at work Jun 08, 2020

Imagine hearing about a product or service that promises to help you attract and retain top talent, maximize long-term profitability, and bring joy to you, your team, your family, your community, and perhaps even the world at large.  And here’s the best news: it’s absolutely free! Wouldn’t you want to try it?

Modern definitions of love include “a virtue representing human kindness, compassion, and affection — the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another.” This definition may also describe compassionate and affectionate actions towards other humans, one’s self, or animals.

As advocates for conscious business, we appreciate the heart-centered benefits of bringing compassion and care into business. What’s even more exciting is that the research suggests creating a culture of love also leads to higher profits. Imagine the impact!

So you might be asking “What’s changing? What is causing business...

Who Am I? Why Am I Here?

inspired purpose Jun 03, 2020

Have you ever asked yourself these questions? If someone asked you these questions, what would you say? What comes to mind when I pose these question to you?

“Who Am I?” is an age old question that may seem simple on the surface. When I was first asked to ponder this question, I was working with a shamanic healer to get through a dark period in my life. He asked me to keep asking it over and over. He said to think of it as a meditation. The results were very interesting.

At first, the answers were what you might expect. I’m a woman. I’m a mother. I’m a data scientist. I’m a spiritual seeker. And on and on.

Eventually, my mind started to get really curious. I began to wonder about who I am on a soul level. What is my purpose? Why was I born? Do I cease to exist when I die? Am I here for a reason?  What if I fail to do what I came here to do?  I started feeling anxious, like I was supposed to know something and I didn’t have a clue.

I'm Coming Out of the Closet!

spirituality Jun 01, 2020

I am a spiritual seeker. I have always been a spiritual seeker. Whew! There, I said it!

This may sound strange, given my 28-year career as a data scientist. But in many ways, it is highly complementary to my analytic work. My intuition often guides my decision process. I’ll share more about using my intuition in another blog. First, I want to offer some historical perspective.

By the time I entered the corporate world, I already had a strong sense of the infinite nature of the universe. I knew the interconnectedness of everything. And I realized that our thoughts, combined with our emotions, are the most powerful force in the universe.

Right now, I’m sitting in the Shanghai airport awaiting my 14 hour flight home. I just spent an amazing week in Rishikesh, India where I attended an immersion for a spiritual business training called Federation 100. It is based on the incredible teachings of Mynoo Maryel and managed by Mynoo and her business partner, Gaurav Gupta –...

Tired of Squeeze Pages? Try Hug Pages?

marketing Mar 04, 2020

Just yesterday I purchased software under duress! There was literally a clock showing time racing by in 1/10 of a second increments. And I had 8 minutes to decide!!

I don’t know about you but I don’t enjoy being pressured into making purchase decisions where I have a short amount of time or my chances for the best deal will vanish – never to be seen again. Can you relate? And yet it’s the norm for most marketing funnels.

How about we start doing things differently? What if our intention is to sell to the prospect who will get the best benefit from our product or service? And perhaps in a timeframe that gives them room to breathe?

A squeeze page encourages us to make quick decisions using scarcity of time or resources. But how many of us make bad decisions when we are under pressure or feeling a sense of potential regret if we don’t act immediately?

A ‘hug’ page, on the other hand, would be about serving the highest potential of our...
