As we approach a new year with great hopes and anticipation for CHANGE, I would like to remind everyone to be:
“Careful What You Ask…The Universe Will Deliver!”
The above quote has become one of my favorite sayings of all time. In my journey to Entrepreneurship, “The Law of Attraction” is something I have had to take really seriously. This includes the friends we keep, the family members that surround us and most importantly what we visualize. Sometimes we look @ our own lives and cannot accept the place we find ourselves. The road is hard and we certainly will lose some “friends” along the way but that is part of the journey. Until we take responsibility for our own condition- we cannot make the necessary moves to rescue ourselves and get to the places we want to go. Keep in mind, that some CHANGE might involve getting rid of folks that are not helping you to attract success – spiritually, mentally, emotionally and/or financially.
So, get ready to ring in the new year by COMMITTING TO and FOLLOWING UP on your plans for Real success.
Now, Visualize With Me For:
A Prosperous New Year, In 2009 & Beyond!
And In The Words Of My Girl Mary J……NO MORE DRAMA, PLEASE –

The other day, I received a “wonderful” email from someone that needed to respond to my last post -regarding Superwoman. In the email, the author found it necessary to remind me of grammatical errors, misspellings and various other violations she/he found in my writing. With all my inadequacies the writer declared, that I could NOT possibly “BE SUPERWOMAN.”
I had to remind myself that declaring myself SUPERWOMAN was not point of the post. The point was to offer support to my fellow “sister friends.” At that moment, I glanced over at another email (I keep this one posted in my home office) that a FRIEND sent to me some time ago:
A hater is someone that is jealous and envious and spends all their time trying to make you look small so that they can look tall.
When you make your mark, you will always attract some haters…That’s why you have to be careful who you share your blessings and your dreams with because some folk can’t handle seeing you blessed….
If the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence, you can rest assured that the water bill is higher there too!
So, like the final words of my “posted” email reminded, You can handle haters by:
1. Knowing who you are and who your TRUE friends are
2. Having a purpose
3. Remembering that what you have is by divine prerogative and not human manipulation
Enjoy, take care, and remember that when living dreams, there are always going to be – HATERZ EVERYWHERE YOU GO –
Stay strong and on task!!!!
This week-end was a long one for me.
I decided to take some time to focus on myself because as we all know – the demands of life can be overwhelming.
As, I reviewed plans – and looked into the New Year – the one thing I resolved was that my new phrase will be “SUPERWOMAN ain’t coming!” As women, it is sometimes difficult to take of our capes – and -take a break from rescuing the world.
I say, we most certainly have the ability to Save The World but not all at the same time. We have to keep in mind that our overextended schedules can be like Kryponite for the soul – and if we do not take some time to energize – we can burn out.
So, I say it is okay to take care of home, business, man and kids – but every so often (without guilt), find the time for yourself – put up a sign on the door, and let the world know:
SUPER WOMAN AIN’T COMIN – at least not today!!!!

Whenever that commercial for Electrolux comes on, I can’t help but laugh out loud – Not because it is funny (in that sense) but because, I can totally relate. Like most working/Entrepreneurial parents juggling a gazillion projects at one time (and well) that ad serves as a testimony. It illustrates and reminds all that to run a family and balance work life takes nothing short of great management and organizational skills. For Ripa who is a Co-host on Regis and Kelly, A Mother, Wife, Pitch Woman, Actress and more, 24 hours like most of us can be a really short day –
So for anyone that underestimates the RESUME of a Working Mom or Dad, I’d say check out this Electrolux Ad – and be clear that this is not just an ad – It is a DAILY reality!
So as we all fight for CHANGE, let’s make sure to we support policies that will support the already overworked parents of the world…….
