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. 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 […]

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 […]

Mentally Strong with Money…

Good news does not always arrive with a smile…and many of us are at peace enough that we can face anything when given the time to go within…that is when we hear the bad news, too! Having a strong mental position is helpful when the news is bad and it concerns money as well, which […]

The World is Over…

At the Miller Nature Preserve here in Lorain County, life transforms all of the time with their butterfly gardens.  I am oh so glad that I captured these photos last summer because it is a photo such as this that will get me through the remaining weeks of 2017!  With the holidays and changing family dynamics, […]

Getting Ready to Be Ready to Transform!

A long time ago when I lived in Vermilion, Ohio, a city by the Lake of Erie, I had a slate wallhanging created for me by a local artist of lake gulls with the words “Don’t Ask Me to Walk…When I have the urge to soar!” Four months ago, I moved to Oberlin, Ohio from […]
