It is Time to Let the Butterflies Fly!

It is the weekend, isn’t it?   In the many blogs I have written over the years, many have a reference to butterflies.  Many of you know that I have the Butterfly as the center of my logo for Empower Excellence, LLC:   Why?  Because the Butterfly is a symbol for transformation.  I am sure there is […]

Living in the NOW with life & money!

There was an unbelievably bad act on America’s Got Talent last evening.  Ironically, it could have been a beautiful act if delivered more simply…It was a caterpillar turning into a butterfly including the time in the chrysalis — most people had no idea what the contestant was trying to portray.  The simplest things in life can […]

Remembering the Revolution!

Well, a lot of stuff happened, and then I saw a quote from Ursula K. LeGuin (THE DISPOSSESSED):  “You cannot buy the Revolution.  You cannot make the Revolution.  You can only be the Revolution.  It is in your spirit, or it is nowhere.” Back on February 26th, in my blog “empowerexcellencewithjan” at wordpress.com, I announced […]

Would you like to do less; achieve more?

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

It is a beautiful Friday in Northeast Ohio, and from my office […]

Motivation Mojo & My Butterfly…

Motivation is funny and strange!  The above piece of art is an original of mine which began as a flower and became a butterfly.  In my work with money, the butterfly is always in my mind, body, heart and soul!  It is my mission, it is TRANSFORMATION!  It is all about the colors, the chakras, […]

Grateful for the Little & Big Things!

Madonna is singing “Little Star”, which in my mind is all about gratitude!  We all come from love, and we need to remember that whenever we begin to doubt ourselves. Never forget who you are little star, never forget how to dream butterfly!   In the last month, I have been dedicating myself to growing […]

Did Not Quite Get the Idea Correct…

On December 30th of 2016, I declared that 2017 would be my year of the butterfly, my year of transformation.  That proved to be very true:  2017 was definitely a year of transformation.  The year included a geographical move to Oberlin, Ohio, 5 upper respiratory crises, a major tear in the fabric of my family with […]

Clearing the Way to My Destination!

I love hummingbirds, and I love butterflies!  No one ever tells baby hummingbirds that they can fly, and butterflies, I am sure, in the midst of their major transformation are never given a course on flying.  They just trust, have faith, and just do it!  They learn as they go!   Tomorrow is the last […]
