• Starting your life over again – from scratch

    No one likes starting over. Especially when lots of time, effort, energy and emotions went into it and you think you did your best. Sometimes your best as they say is not good enough. I want to ponder on that for a moment and respond by saying that once you feel that you have given your best in any situation, then it is good enough! However, if you have to start over, then just dust yourself off and look upwards and ahead and say “bring it on!”. What’s the alternative? Wallow, cry, succumb to your injuries, pride and shame? I don’t think so. It will only dig you deeper in a place[...]

    Where do you get the motivation?

    I was in a meeting recently where I was asked that question. It’s a question that I have been asked several times by different types of people and under various circumstances. It could have been in a job interview, at a speaking engagement, a social networking event or just hanging with friends. The thing is people pick up my energy and drive almost immediately. If you are aware of yourself and what’s going on around you, it would be easy to pick up the energy I bring to a room and group of people. I pick it up from others as well and when two persons with the same or similar type of [...]

    In Hindsight

    I dedicated 27 years of my life to a relationship and at the end of it, what is there to show for it? 2 beautiful children, yes, and don’t get me wrong, I am grateful for them for I cannot think what my life would be like without them. However, shouldn’t there be more? Don’t we all want some sort of gratification in our personal lives to show for it, whether it be marriage for some? Personal growth and development, achievement, success, investments? I don’t know! But I really don’t think anyone goes into a relationship, stays for 27 years and wants to see nothing! If I am wrong, tell[...]

    Empowerment to Action

    Have you ever found yourself attending a seminar or workshop and after the event nothing happens? You just go back to your old ways and in retrospect, you wonder what the hell happened after spending all that money and time? Well, you can’t blame anyone else but yourself and I too fall in that bracket at times but we need to do a self check and realize it’s time to stop the procrastination! It’s time to take the empowerment we receive and best practices learned from thought leaders and put it into action once and for all! At the Power Your way Forward Conference 2017 in Dallas [...]

    You miss this, you miss....

    Lemme see now. We spend money on clothes, shoes, entertainment and even on the boyfriend and husband and what returns did we get? A kiss on the cheek and a hug. While that’s appreciated and we do all those things out of love, it’s time to do some self love and invest in ourselves as women and as women in business so we can do more stuff from the heart for those we love. Makes sense? We don’t miss the opportunities to get the birthday and anniversary gifts but we miss out on events like these that can catapult us forward. I refer to the Power Your Way Forward Women’s [...]

    The death of your time

    Herein lays ‘Your Time’ better known as ‘Proscrastination’. Many times he came to visit and while you may have wanted to send him away, you accommodated him with coffee, tea or wine and even pastry and some good music. On many occasions, you both enjoyed watching TV or hanging out at the clubs. Yes, Your Time has lived well. He felt good when he visited and when he left, though he may have overstayed his time too often, it didn’t seem to bother you, so he kept coming by. You wondered if you should take control of Your Time and even spoke to other friends and colleagues who you see[...]

    When Working from home was taboo

    It was a mere 16 years or so ago when I was pursuing my post graduate degree and I envisioned not working for anyone but myself from a virtual environment. I even wrote my final paper on it! Back then, it was unheard of to want to work from home, yet even further from thought was working virtually. What did that mean? No one knew but I did. I knew back then, 16 years ago that I wanted a global business and that I could work anywhere in the world making money. I don’t think the internet was as savvy as it is today but it did exist and I believed that one day very soon that people will be [...]
