How Powerful Do You Feel Any Morning? #Financial Freedom

The First Decision of the Day…

When we talk about what your personal capital is, we are talking everything from knowledge to Intuition and more. Self worth often times comes when you can realize what you are better than anyone else at doing one particular thing. That’s easy, but do you know where your power is, what you are stronger than anyone at doing?

I truly believe that mornings are meant as a time to really look at yourself, either figuratively or in a mirror if you dare! Think about your strengths and could you improve them? Leave the weaknesses alone because if they are still a weakness, they may always remain a weakness. We are looking for your “power”. Find what you are really good at and become an expert in that area or areas. How do yo do that?


You start focusing on yourself, grow your strengths and find a way to make the world a better place with those strengths. If you can consistently work on your strengths, your source of power, you can grow in those areas, possibly build wealth using those ideas and eventually find financial freedom!

Your strengths can be in one or many areas of your life including financial, physical, mental, social or spiritual. Pick your starting point and limit the amount of time you spend focusing as you get started on the morning of your choice. Take one step at a time, do not force it, and do not stress about it. It may take a few tries before you find a strength that makes you smile and feel powerful. If nothing is working at first, put it aside until the next day. You will be amazed when this quiet focused time becomes a pleasant habit because you are spending time on your most important asset: you! It is up to you to design this morning time to work for you.

Find Hope in Trusting Yourself to Socialize & Network! #Empower Connect Share

Look at Socializing & Networking as TRUSTING IN YOURSELF!

In plain black and white, finding hope can be done in socializing…all kinds of socializing! But there is something you need to know about yourself first. That something is “Trust Yourself”.

In our Finding Hope with money segment yesterday, we touched on building confidence and self esteem and how money confidence helps build that. When you trust yourself with money, that carries over into trusting yourself with connecting with others. Trust in yourself builds to making you unshakeable. Your consciousness becomes unchanging, you feel grounded, and you know you can rely on yourself. All of these characteristics are needed to be able to explore and build new relationships which in turn do activate hope from within you. You know that you are worthy of all you are looking for.

Finding hope in socialization does also ask that you put ego aside as well as be vulnerable. Ego often acts as a shield, a shield that can be off-putting , but to put ego aside does make you more vulnerable, and that is good. Examine your expectations when socializing and networking; be careful to be open without expectations in socializing with new acquaintances. Chances are your new acquaintances may have their own lack of trust in themselves as well. They may be filled with doubt and fear and maybe expectations about you.

Trust yourself, trust your intuition. Trust and intuition are a part of your personal power. You can share that power, but do not give it away. When you meet someone new, or old in terms of a relationship, be open but careful. My words of wisdom in networking socializing is “Givers give”. Learn about your new acquaintance, learn about how you might be abe to help them with their purpose for socializing and networking. It is amazing how that opens up the conversation. But keep yourself in mind as well. A real danger signal is someone who only wants to “take” and not give”. That can kill hope really fast, but trust yourself, trust your intuition; you are powerful. Just remember that you are powerful. Find hope here.

But what about socializing and networking in our current times. This is where assessing your experience and comfort with the technology available is needed. Many networking groups are using and encouraging using the tools such as LIVE networking on Facebook. Zoom meetings and more can be useful but a little intimidating until you learn how to use them effectively. Get your feet wet slowly in the technology. I am very thankful that each of my four regional networking groups have their own “closed” Facebook group only open to the members to share, to experiment going LIVE, and in turn offering feedback to others and seeking help from the other members when they need it. There are many ways members can become familiar and learn to trust themselves with the technology. You can find hope here as well.

In all situations, in person and virtual, practice the art of conversation including listening. Conversation can be productive in all forms if listening and speaking are balanced along with the sharing of wisdom. This is where your power and self trust reign and are weighed constantly by your intuition. You know when to insert your power if you are listening to your internal trust; this is your intuition speaking to you without speaking. Intuition is a great conversation tool but weigh it carefully. Go gentle into conversation as you build your hope for too much of any of this can be counterproductive! Trust yourself, all of yourself.

When Energy is POWER!

Energy is with you forever. You create positive energy or negative energy. That is your basic use of power. As a baby you learn: when you are uncomfortable with wetness, with hunger, with fatigue, or with pain. While your energy may be dwindling, you find you have the energy to get what you need. Over the years, you learn when to call on your power—positive or negative—to accomplish your needs of the moment. You begin to learn control while manifesting your needs.

Power is yours, learn to use it well, use it apart from ego to use it success successfully.

The Value of SHARING, The Value of CONVERSATION–THAT IS THE VALUE OF STORIES!

Your story is your story! Every story has a character which may very well be you. Every story has a problem or a reason to tell the story. It is very possible in the story the character finds a guide or guidance to help them with their problem and calls them to some sort of action. The action helps solve their problem or issue and success is achieved to a total or partial degree. A transformation occurs. But the story must be shared, and it happens more often than not in a conversation.

Stories are powerful. Stories can make the story teller powerful. Sharing a story shares the power of not only the storyteller but also the transformation that can occur. When AGELESS WOMEN OF WISDOM was conceived through a conversation, the story of my former collaborator had more of a negative vibe about women and aging and the media and culture. My story became more positive.

Positivity was my story, living in the NOW, moving only forward and not back. The launch program and 2020 retreats of AGELESS WOMEN OF WISDOM (AWW) focus on “what would make your life better in 2020?” Conversations during the summer of 2019 were stories with women of all walks of life, all ages, and positivity. Energy is what moves us every moment of our life; healing occurs by moving forward with energy of all types. With Energy and your story, you are armed to make changes that are very possible. The first thing is to tell the story, share the story, empower your continuing transformation by asking for help through your story. There is nothing more powerful than your story except for sharing it through conversation one to one or through groups. By sharing it, you empower another to see that there is a way through their problem.

Women are nurturers. Nurturers who want to help, and they help each other, whether friends or strangers, when they are invited to share their stories on their own way to finding their own solutions to life. AWW began with a Summer Program called Ageless Women Emerging through three “Conversations”. The idea worked and more than 100 ways to make their lives better in 2020 were shared. Women will on October 16 not only enjoy a fantastic comedic program THE SIX AGES OF WOMAN with Mary Faktor but also prioritize the ideas for retreats in 2020. They will be in a winery setting in Richfield, Ohio, out in nature planning the beginning of many transformations in 2020. They talked, they shared, they opened their hearts to others to tell their stories. Every one benefited, and they will continue through their participation in retreats created by their own stories…

Do you have a story to tell, to share, to find a solution in? You can attend on October 16th The Eventbrite invitation can be found on Facebook @AWWAgelessWomenofWisdom or leave me a comment…You have a story, I just know you do!

When The Universe Flows Over You with Grace…

Seriously, several days ago I went through a healing with a serious healer to overcome a fear that only occupied a very small part of my life, but it had to do with logical mathematical thinking, the farthest away from creativity that I could ever imagine! But the fear was crippling my creativity, my peace of mind, and much more. I allowed myself a “no think” weekend, but it is really working, and I am sleeping so peacefully all the way through the night, I am meditating in my power hour upon awakening , and seem to be accepting everything as it is without any concern. My creativity is running rampant. For the AGELESS WOMEN OF WISDOM 2020 RETREATS, I have narrowed them down from 10 to 7 leaving the Summer for fun. I have gone through and categorized the 113 main ideas for the retreat topics to be prioritized. And the beat goes on…Creativity has begun on the rebranding of my companies, and the above graphic is a depiction of where we are going in 2020. Healing can mean many things!

My Inner Being & I Have a Mutual Admiration Society!

Thanks to my friend Beth this beautiful graphic came my way. It spoke to me for many reasons: the butterfly, trust, intuition, and more. I interpret intuition as my “Inner Being”, and I want to feel about me the way my Inner Being feels about me. The Inner Being always looks out for the best for me. It is interesting to look at my Inner Being that way as I am a teacher of life, and I am a creator, and I walk with the Universe in acceptance of who I am as a whole being: mind, body and soul. I have no limits in seeing what is or feeling what is. I see with my eyes and I feel with my mind, body, and soul.

Like my Inner Being, my power is in the NOW and I resonate with my Inner Being as my Source. Source is NOW focused and shares its wisdom with me. My Inner Being is not interested in the past, and it does not wait until the manifestation of an intention “happens”. I try to be secure as my Inner Being is secure in the NOW. Consequently, all my power is in the NOW as is Inner Being’s power is in the NOW. I do not see every intention as an already done deal, but I look at every intention with the vision of my Inner Being.

What I do Know is that the world is waiting for my vision of what is real for me. I know that action leads to connection and communication and eventually co-creation. Collaboration always has potential, and that to me is SHARING. Taking a step into certainty empowers my intentions to the Universe. I can then connect to my true self of Pure Spirit and pursue my divine purpose with action, connection, and communication to share and speak my truth. We walk the path of what we want and what we need. Interconnection leads to inspiration, and the new ideas roll in. I then know where to go, whom to meet, and make the human connection to reach manifestation.

I then come to the table with others to SHARE our individual visions and to begin to live in the flow together. It is networking, it is being out there sharing visions but still retreating back into stillness which then encourages and inspires action with the spoken word which is a very powerful tool. Verbalization empowers our intentions into the world: My vision shared with your vision becomes our SHARED VISION. And my Inner Being becomes blended with my outer being of reality to become an AGELESS WOMAN OF WISDOM.

The Wind of SOURCE is at your back!

YOU are a powerful world creator pushed by global energy. Of course, you are, and each one of you makes a perceivable difference in your own life and the lives of others.

And, you are guided and thwarted by many feelings and emotions: clarity, humility, passion, abundance, purpose, appreciation, and love. And you do see results, maybe not all of the feelings and emotions at once, but one by one they pop up and feed your energy, your personal energy, and, in turn, your global energy.

Yes, you are a part of the global energy, part of the spiritual energy, and, while your path is not straight, the path does lead back to you and your deeper truths. You are a candle in the dark, but when you join all of the others with candles in the dark, YOU LIGHT UP THE WORLD, and you energize it!

How Can I Serve?

Today is October 16th…About 8 years ago, I made my final departure from the traditional world of financial services. The first step in that journey into the world of serving others was to answer the question “Who am I?” followed by the second question “What do I want?”

But the overriding question was “How can I serve?” Oh yes, that was the beginning of Empower Excellence and a year of soul searching to write the book now known as “Set This Butterfly Free…” The book will be published within the year. It is in the line. But Empower Excellence became the way to serve to help people have a better relationship with money for money, while only a tool, is really needed to live. Learning how to use the tool effectively was my path for several years.

The earlier stated questions were being answered, and, when I was asked to incorporate one of my networking groups into my business, there was a lot of soul searching, but it was who I was, it was what I wanted and needed to continue to serve. Professional Women’s Connection has now grown into a regional network of women where I do serve endlessly.

And now, today, September 16, 2019, a year after a collaborative discussion began, AGELESS WOMEN OF WISDOM is really having its launch propel me into the next phase of “Who Am I?’, “What do I want?” and “How can I serve?” By propelling me, it is also propelling every woman who has been touched over the last three months to ask the questions “Who am I?” “What do I want?” and
“HOW DO I SERVE?”

Finding the answers for all of us is to become aware how we can SHARE our WISDOM. I have shared my wisdom through Empower Excellence, Professional Women’s Connection, and now Ageless Women of Wisdom. I found my flow through love and smiles over these years. Givers get is a favorite saying because it is true.

NOW is the opportunity for all of us to SHARE first of all AGELESS WOMEN OF WISDOM by sharing the information you receive about the group, about the October 16th launch, and about how you may already be involved. But more SHARING will occur through the day of the launch at Michael Angelo’s, through the upcoming opportunity to become a part of the 2020 AWW Retreat Program as a presenter and a participant. All the while, as you give you shall also receive. That answers my questions for me: “What do I want?” I want to SHARE and give my powerful wisdom for power is not power until you SHARE it. “Who am I?” I am a giver, and I have patterned my life in that mode. “How can I serve?” I serve by sharing my wisdom as a way to help others in their journey to wisdom which they in turn also SHARE.

The Law of Grace, Happiness & Joy

It is possible to reconnect to your truth of your being, to your wholeness, to your wisdom, and to your power. Things happen through you, and the entire Universe is aligned in your favor. When you realize it, it is a holy instant. It also reminds you that happiness is part of a finite game: you are happy because of a moment. What I am believing is that I prefer JOY–it is the part of the Infinite game that lasts my whole life.

WHY Empower Excellence?

If you were to look at my entrepreneurial ventures today, you might ask how did this all begin? It is simple: I learned I had been given much in the form of education and experience, and that is power. It was up to me to use that power to empower others. So I did. I began Empower Excellence about 7 years ago to empower others with money, then I accepted the leadership of a networking group to empower others in business, and then this year I followed Divine Guidance to form AGELESS WOMEN OF WISDOM. In truth, AGELESS WOMEN OF WISDOM is now the prime empowerment movement for me. It is to empower women of all generations to SHARE WISDOM with each other: Participation Through Conversation in all forms! Secondary is PROFESSIONAL WOMEN’S CONNECTION in five Northeastern Ohio locations to SHARE BUSINESS EXPERIENCE between all members. The first and foundational effort founded first but all encompassing now is EMPOWER EXCELLENCE which focuses on Money Energy and powers all in my companies to be excellent. TRULY, IT IS PARTICIPATION IN EXCELLENCE THROUGH CONVERSATION in all three groups.

My suggestion to you this morning is to take the time and map out what your education and experience has been. It is not surprising to see the linkages between what you will find. Take the time to find out who you are and what you possess that is power and find a way, no matter how small, to use that power to empower others. It will bring to light the meaning that you bring into your world.

This is just another reason why AGELESS WOMEN EMERGING and AGELESS WOMEN OF WISDOM exists in my world and I am bringing it one person at a time to become a movement that truly is powerful…PARTICIPATION THROUGH CONVERSATION!
