Self Esteem Based on Money!

There have been so many discussions for me this week about money…clients, networking groups, and more.  And then there is my own self perception and self esteem that has been talked about.   It does matter in all cases to know what you are building your self esteem on.  Please do not build it on […]

Cry When Your Heart is Breaking..

Earlier today on my “It’s Your Money!” on Empower Excellence “It’s Your Money!” LIVE and More on Facebook, I shared a brief admonition about valentine’s Day!  It is a day of romance, but it can also be a day to break your heart… No matter your gender or age, when entering a relationship, take the time […]

This Week Is Gone, Thank You, GOD!

Wild Success Has Arrived, and It is Me!

I do not know why today is different than any other day of my life, but it is. Since 2013, I have had a clearer mission, and I knew I would do whatever to support that, and I have.  Now it is 2016, the mission continues developing into the passion I have for total sustainable […]
