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, I announced […]

The time is NOW!

There is no time like the present, and that is what I told myself this morning when I awoke at 2 am after 4 hours of sleep.  This no longer bothers me; I have learned to trust time, and I went back to sleep listening to Esther Hicks giving an inspirational talk which seemed like […]

R-Evolution with Money & Women…

In this month’s issue of SUCCESS, Actress Monique Coleman shares an item entitled “Don’t be afraid to take risks.”  And, yesterday, reading a book on HYGGE, it came to me that I am very comfortable proclaiming that I am beginning a money revolution.  Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, I am up, fed, showered, and dressed just […]

Talking to Someone Who is a Woman!

The last few days in the stock market remind me why I do not miss my days, years, in the financial services business in the traditional sense; but it also reminds me of the deep conversations I would have with all of my clients–men and women!  It was those conversations that pushed me out of the […]

Women in a Men’s Field or is Corporate America Just Not Looking!

Now that I have your attention with the photo of George Clooney, which is from his movie “Up In The Air”, let’s also look at the title of my blog today.  While women are outpacing men in advance degrees, women are capable, so what is holding women back especially in the financial advising industry.  Rhetorical question! […]

Six Years Ago…What If I Had Not Left Edward Jones!

I love Snoopy, that daredevil comic creation of Mr. Schultz.  Snoopy has no fear, he doe snot care if it is the weekend or a Saturday or the beginning of  a New Year.  We do not even know if he can think through his decisions; he just takes the leap and pays the consequences, whatever […]

Are You Ready to Create Your Miracle?

It is easy for me to talk about miracles, and I truly believe in them!  But it is not always easy.  And yet, on days like yesterday, when I could say forget it all, I will live on what my retirement gives me, and forget about making a difference in my life or others.  There […]

This is Dedicated to a Friend I Love…

Happy Birthday, Beth!  You continue on your journey, a journey that has already become interesting as you travel the country “mobile”.  You have faced many challenges, but I have had fond thoughts of your adventure as you have spent some wonderful weeks I am sure in the area I refer to as “God’s Country”.  It […]

Recruitment Unnecessary…

There is no need for recruitment as the Wild Woman Sisterhood is an organic movement.  It appears that by the time women turn gray, and sometimes even before they turn gray, they are ready to join with other women to make a difference in the way the world is moving!  The radicalness of many women grows […]
