Crafting the Future

It is the neatest thing to be able to pursue a DREAM and craft my future. I am super grateful for the privilege – THANK YOU GOD! It is a true blessing.

So today, I want to share more of my story and the things that drive me to keep reaching the highest heights. Conveniently there was a fun meeting with my Peninsula Women’s Network Power Group where I was invited to give my talk describing my business:


I appreciate Yvonne for facilitating and taking notes. Here’s her synopsis of our 60 second presentations. Check out what we discussed!

Connectors Power Group November 15, 2017

  • Marissa Colon
    Working on employee handbook, needs referrals for home security, *New deterrent: video doorbell /// Something new about her: an offer on a house in Toano but will continue to come to this group. Hooray!
  • Marilen Crump
    Looking for people who are going to make something happen in 2018, and she is “the prod” based on the person’s goals and needs. /// Something new: She used to be a background dancer for Paulina Rubio. She did live performances in the background. No wonder she has a ballroom.
  • Paula Wallace
    Independent agent looking for more referrals for her business.  She recommends that people look over their policies and shop around yearly for prescription policies and Medicare Advantage. /// Something new: Paula has a degree in medical technology and was a supervisor in medical laboratories. She is turning 65 years old and will be looking for a personal trainer.
  • Yvonne Ortega
    Looking for speaking engagements. She is also looking for clients who want speaking and writing coaching—both individual and group. /// Something new: Yvonne grew up in the Midwest, walked a mile to school regardless of snow and ice, walked more than a mile daily over Christmas vacation to go ice skating in the afternoon and tobogganing daily after dinner. Now she’s a hot house plant.
  • Jolynn Jones
    She sells essential oils and does a monthly educational session. She will do a session on emotions and essentials on Thursday, Nov. 16, 2017 at 6:45 pm at ARTINSPIRED. /// Something new: She has been a background dancer and teaches dancing but not four hours a night. She and Marilen need to dance for us!



D.R.E.A.M. is my branded system

I’ve been devising a formula in my little corner of the world. A formula to give a ton of people FREEDOM and CONFIDENCE. It’s not anyone else’s concoction – IT’S MINE – – – mwhuahaha *crazy grinning*

SERIOUSLY – I thank God for the insights he has given me and continue to provide me. So technically this comes from the UNIVERSE and for that I am grateful.

What am I rambling about?? Well, it is my D.R.E.A.M. Formula for Success™ – 5 Must Have Principles to Achieve Every Goal … I am often asked what steps I take to get many of my dream goals realized and it’s not always easy to explain just in passing. This led me to creating programs of EMPOWERMENT at my studio – The ARTINSPIRED Center – and eventually coaching others through personalized processes since 2010. In the beginning I focused on mainly Artists and Photographers which then grew into coaching other coaches, entrepreneurs and other major goal setters.

This year I’ve been testing formats and hosting sites to finally offer these types of classes online. While it is hard to replicate the in-person experience with recordings or workbooks – I am working hard to create an online / self-study process that will provide the rewarding transformation people are seeking.

I want to take a moment to congratulation a couple of my coaching clients for the work they have been putting into our projects using my D.R.E.A.M. Formula for Success™:

Jackie Condict, MBA reached a milestone yesterday with her lifestyle coaching business by launching her Website and Facebook Page  We have been working together on crafting the new chapter in Jackies’ life. She is multi-talented woman and it was time to bring all her skills and vision together in a business she has aptly named “Just Jackie Solutions”. She is also uprooting to move back to her home state of Pennsylvania after living in Virginia for over 10 years. We will be continuing our collaboration and you will be seeing more from Jackie in the upcoming months. She has embraced all the new possibilities and is on her way to big success.

Wanda Slade is a Mary Kay Consultant and has loved being affiliated with the company for over 4 years. She has gone about her business goals like most people I meet out in the world – meeting people, doing the occasional facial and/or party, posting on Facebook relentlessly and just hoping for clients to buy from her and book a party. Unfortunately, it has only brought a trickle of success and even more disheartening – she had been using her personal finances to cover the shortages in inventory and order placement. Now, I know that there are many successful women in the Direct Sales business but Wanda’s lack of consistency in personal accountability, confidence, client correspondences, daily and weekly progress, and overall goal setting.  – – – What Wanda needed was a system… first for her personal finances and then for the business.  – – –  For the past two months, I have been coaching Wanda to get her personal budget under control. I’m happy to say that she has reached so many milestones in just under 60 days!! ::: I’ll be interviewing Wanda soon so that you can hear it in her own words ::: But this has really been exciting for her and for me as her trusted adviser. We are now under way to start tackling her business goals and I can’t wait to see how the rest of year develops.


Later today I’ll be doing a public speaking engagement for Riverside Child Development and Learning Center where I will be teaching people on
“Living a Vibrant and Stress Free Life”


Thank you for all for being engaged with me and my mission to help as many people achieve their Dreams and Passions through experiences that lift the soul.

Feel free to contact me if you need help achieving your DREAMS!!!
