Attitude of Gratitude to Start the Week…

Attitude Gratitude Patience

And then there is a new week…

Mondays roll around quickly with my 9 AM Empower Excellence LIVE program on my Facebook page “Empower Excellence LIVE & More” …And then there is Wednesday and Friday.  This is in addition to my blog here on as well as an Empower Excellence monthly newsletter and my website

And there is more with an award-winning professional women’s network in Northeast Ohio with three locations and a fourth coming in 2019.  

Sometimes, all of this weighs down the real reason I founded Empower Excellence in 2011:  to help people with their money relationships.  I have to get back to that mission in the coming weeks.  As a starter, I began a school on “Teachable”, “Empower Excellence Transformational Moments”.  It is an exciting way to introduce assets to individuals through programs that were left to gather dust since about 2013.  That was when I discovered that no one likes to talk about Money in groups as it is is way too personal.  So this year I educated myself in online programs.  This way my help with your money relationships can be delivered to you wherever and whenever you know it is time to make money a better friend to you and your family.

Yes, I am still available and eager to work as a money coach with individuals and families in person or through Skype.  The personal touch is important because everyone’s situation is different.  And that is the beauty of the Teachable platform:  we can still have additional coaching once you begin to realize you need help!  

So why am I devoting a whole blog to this on this cloudy, cool Ohio Sunday morning?  

Because I am grateful for what has been given to me, and I am grateful for everyone who takes the time to look at whatever I am sharing.  And I am patient.  I would like to get to know each of you a little better, and I am starting to follow and really read what you write about.  This is how relationships are built.  Let’s get to know each other and how we can be thankful for the relationships that may develop.  Namaste…

Tomorrow’s 9 AM program on Facebook “Empower Excellence LIVE & More” is “Attitude”…Start your week with an attitude of gratitude

Would you like to do less; achieve more?

Less with more focus

For years, I thought I was very focused until 2018 arrived, and my focus intensified for many reasons.

Are you focused?  

Still, would you like to do less, have more time for what you are passionate about, and still find your abundance?

It is a beautiful Friday in Northeast Ohio, and from my office facing .75 acres of trees, puddles, and birds, and sometimes deer, the windows are open in every room, and I am breathing deeply, smiling, and getting so much done–personal and professional.  I share because too many times when the discussion centers on being focused, it is only professional.  But balance was part of the reason I have increased my focus.

This morning included over an hour of meditation–guided and free flowing, homemade healthy breakfast, my 5-minute or so “Empower Excellence It’s Your Money LIVE” session on Facebook on “Net Worth”–personal and financial, creation of an Egg/Cheese/Ham Strata to cook this evening with a fresh salad, a quick cleaning of my townhome, and more.  I have caught up on my emails, processed today’s mail, and am now doing my blog.  All before the long-awaited washer repairman appears between 12 and 5.  That is another story.  This afternoon is planned to finish my third program to be ready to be published online for Teachable and my “Transformational Moments” School there.  Why do I share all this minutia?  Because being focused has led to better sleep, more exercise, more productivity personally and professionally.  

But it is more than “focus”!  

And it is something that I plan on sharing on Teachable, on Facebook, and on this sharing piece.  What I have been sharing on social media has a lot do with my work on Money, really Money Energy; and it is time to share the back stories about Money Energy:  Flow, Vibration, Abundance, Transformation, Self Care, Oneness, Joy, Ethics, Values, Attitude, Resistance, Self Love, and Gratitude.  

And every bit of it has to do with money and money energy.  If you energize your life, your money is energized as well…

Thanks for reading “empowerexcellencewithjan” and supporting me in this way.  I hope to provide more than you can read, appreciate, and share with others.  Have a great weekend.

Happy, Happy, Sad, Sad!

Butterfly   By Example

It has been a long siege of illness for me since the end of October, but I am still a pretty happy person.  Of course, I have my sad days, and I have my happy days, and, when it comes to money, there is no telling what the day will bring so I think very little about money on a personal level.  Sound strange?  Yes, it does because I have had years of sad money days, but the more I followed my mission of helping others with their money relationship, the fewer sad days I have had and that is because I have learned that the Universe and faith and hope always make sure I have what I need.  And the bigger secret is that I have learned to live in the NOW most of the time.  I am neither perfect nor do I want to be perfect.  I cannot change someone else’s outlook on money unless I truly believe that our individual attitudes truly can make examples fro the rest of the world.  And they can!  My example for all to see, and hear, because I have no ego involved in this covers the gamut of dysfunctional families, divorce, single parenthood, career disasters, and more.  They were lessons that needed to be taught and learned, and they have enabled me to know that I will always be ok.  

The other lesson learned is that money is only a tool that takes us through life with a bargaining tool; it is not the ultimate, it is not that by which we are truly judged.  And, at this time of the year, it is a symbol of commercialism for many that can lead to depression and ego illness.  Money is not love, money does not buy love, but love is what this season is about.  It is love that keeps everyone moving every day of every one’s life!  Love is the attitude and example that can serve as the guidepost for all of us every day with money.    

When in Emotional Pain, Do Not Rage…

Live Your Purpose

Life is funny.  I have been transferring from one bank to another of many reasons, and i have had my share of pain with new changes and learning the ways of “this bank”.  Today, I learned that the closest branch no longer has a drive through.  That is okay with me with good weather coming to Ohio.  In the winter, I will choose another branch.  When I went into the bank and simply stated that I just learned they do not have  a drive-through.  One of the tellers offered that the Crocker branch has a drive through.  I didn’t think, I just responded:  I don’t need a drive through, I am inside now.  The whole staff thanked me for my attitude because, as they told me, people come in and bitch at them for almost 2 years now that the drive through is closed.

I guess my point in sharing is that when you let small things cause you emotional pain, you are letting “the small things” run your life.  It is really the same when it comes to money:  be bothered by the small monetary issues in your life, and sooner or later all money things become the “big things”.  Money is a non-entity; it is the energy you give to it that determines if it becomes an entity that is bothersome.  

It is so true that if you listen to the whisper in your soul, if you learn to trust your heart, and if you live your purpose, so many things, including money become non-entities to you.  They are needed but they do not become your path to “neediness.” 

Blue Skies, Nothing But Blue Skies From Now On



Blue Skies, Nothing but Blue Skies From Now On…..lyrics from a song, yes!  But much more, much, much more!

It is an attitude that is sometimes difficult to conjure up in the middle of an Ohio winter; but when you do, it is FANTASTIC!  It is being in the flow; it is wearing a smile all day long!

So that is where I am, looking at blue sky, blue water; just blue, blue, blue! And oh so happy being blue!  Share the mood with me, share the song with me, share the attitude with me!  It is oh so fine when you do!

And now, Blue Sky is much more than that!  Ask me about it on my Facebook page where this is posted.  Ask me about it on Linked IN where this is posted.  Ask me through Twitter where this is posted.  Just ask me about Blue Sky!
