Conscious Connections

 I am now conscious of who and how I’m connected.

It is a part of being human that we are networked into a social structure. We are born to a family and as we grow we become connected to those who have interacted with us.

More and more I try to be aware of how those connections affect me.
What am I drawing into my community?
How do I fit into the equation?

As with anything, I try not to dwell on things too long before I start creating a pathway. This past summer I recognized that I was feeling the pull to embrace the larger world. I had been content with running ARTINSPIRED our the little corner called Hampton Roads. My twins had just turned 2 and had their own little agendas that didn’t always center around me. My arms felt less tied and my find started to fixate on bigger possibilities of service.

I was invited by Cara Rich, President of the Peninsula Women’s Network to serve on their board this past July. I accepted and knew it was time to start getting more involved in the network compared to just being a casual member that only showed up to one or two things a year. So I jumped in and haven’t looked back.

Then most recently one of our PWN members and now one of my lovely friends, Lindie Yardley invited me to come to her BNI Executive Chapter meeting in Hampton. I was thinking – I really didn’t have time but I would give it a try and attend. I found it filled with really admirable business leaders with warm hearts. And it was certainly a plus that Lindie was at the helm. I made the commitment and was officially inducted into the group yesterday (see photos here).

Here are a few other ways that 2017 has been a year of connections:

  • One of my mentoring clients is by her nature a CONNECTOR – Jackie Condict is even writing a book called “The Art of Connecting through GRACE”
  • I have been coaching a budding entrepreneur that lives in Singapore – Marielle Say who owns The Sorter Girls – A Productivity Company. We connected through an online group for entrepreneurs.
  • I’ve build a couple of new Facebook Groups mainly my CREATIVES AND DREAMERS group that I absolutely love and use to connect other warm-hearted souls.
  • I traveled to Las Vegas to build on my business goals and met really inspirational people at MONETIZE Your MISSION that I will be connected to within a program that helps us craft our signature products. Thank you to Lisa Sasevich and her team!

I look forward to more brilliant and blessed connections! After all … “The Right Connections Provide Strength for Your Dreams” 😉

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 https://justjackiesolutions.com and Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/justjackiesolutions/  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.

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