I am very, very excited that my new book is coming out: "It Is What It Is, The Five C's of Life!
The Book is about Five C's that we face every day, and what do we do when they enter into our lives. It is part of my motivational speaking/empowerment series for 2012-2013.
As a Self-Publisher and Motivational Speaker I am excited to have the opportunity to share with others who have the same interest as I do and as a poet, can't wait to do my smooth jazz spoken word…Continue

Are you having trouble paying your utility bill? Don’t worry, President Obama has authorized credits to your account through a new national program. Sound too good to be true? It is.
This multi-state scam has con artists posing as utility company representatives. The catch? They want your Social Security Number along with your credit card and bank routing information. Ugh.…Continue

In the Blog linked above I discuss a brief (but common) example of how clouded we can get when going through a life change that causes us to feel our daily lives or material belongings are at risk of no longer being in our control.

We recently held a shopping event for women and I feel like it was a HUGE success. I have since come to realize that not all of us have the same definition of success.
How much money did i make? One question I have been asked quite a few time...here is my answer...i made enough to cover the cost of the event and enough to help me cover expenses for the next event.
In my heart that is not an important question.
A more important question, for…Continue
In the past few years vineyards and wineries have been a good place to both pursue and take a break from Commercial Photography. Scenic vineyards are a great opportunity to explore the heart of any photographer- impressive vistas and playing with light.

By providing an introduction to the business at the beginning you can help your employees feel welcome. A history of the workplace and it’s…Continue
