Make a Living AND Have a Life
(music to my ears)

Life is sweet, and even more so when you have a business that fully supports, vs. detracts from family time during the week or weekend, and, hence, is a direct reflection of your values.

Having a spiritually-modern business I can take with me on my gypsy travels, and successfully run while experiencing the world and growing my most important relationships has been the priority since I started MGI 15 years ago, later moving and growing it in Amsterdam, Guadalajara and Portland.

When we go to Europe for the month of July and Columbia for two weeks in August, things will be running just as if I was still holding down the fort in LA.

Make a living (LOVE what you do) *and* have a life.

Making the revenue you want doesn't have to come at the expense of family (you and I both know that's way too expensive).

Learn the who, what, when, where and how of successful entrepreneurship and authentic branding, while being a conscious, devoted mom.

Ode to the sweetness, soul and ease that's possible. Hello to the Mom Mogul Success Society Mastermind:

Enjoy your business and enjoy your life! 

Life is good,





Brand Yourself Through THIS

If you're a woman, be one who speaks up and speaks her truth.

If you're a mom, be one who speaks up and speaks her truth.

If you're a lover, be one who speaks up and speaks her truth.

To be a fighter, a martyr, or woman who suffers quietly, is optional.

If you don't share your truth, nothing in life may ever feel true.

If you don't speak up in love, namely self-love, it will feel like you rarely ever receive any real, long-lasting and meaningful love from those around you (it may not be true, but you may feel like it is.)

In order to be the thought leader of your movement, you must first share your truest, most honest thoughts with those closest to you, all in the name of more deeply relating.

Your next largest business success comes on the heels of the awareness, the words and, ultimately, the connection you prioritize with your VIPs.

Make your bed there first.

It is and they are the heart and soul of the heart and soul of your business, whether you realize it today, or not.

As a business owner or entrepreneur, our most powerful brand or brand of thought leadership comes after we decide to be thought leaders in all our relationships, not just those with the public world, or with our clients, teams or business partners.

If you speak up and speak your truth in the name of all that is good in the world, for peace and harmony, while also deeply listening to others speak theirs, even when it doesn't make you right or make you feel all right, know you will have likely spoken most loudly.

Dear woman, mom, and lover of all things good in the world,

Love self and others loudly.

Do so by more fully using your voice and allowing others to do the same.

Enjoy your business and enjoy your life! 

Life is good,




Making Lemonade (Here’s How I Make It ;-)


As I sat with my Dad before he went into surgery, healing and recovery, I thought of the last few years of deep awakening as a result of tragic loss, I smiled and recognized the path I had taken to my own healing the last three years wasn't through pouring myself another drink, but by pouring myself into my relationships.

It's quenched my thirst and it's still quenching my thirst. 

Pour yourself into your relationships and you'll make lemonade out of lemons every single time.

This is your brand of woman.

Enjoy your business and enjoy your life! 

Life is good,





How To Get Through Hard Times (“Silly Face Tuesday”)

Since March, the Ghilotti's (and Ghilotti Mandel's) have exchanged "Silly Face Tuesday" photos with one another.

It's lightened our collective grief after losing my brother and mother in such a short amount of time.

This family fun practice started between my SIL and me, then, I moved it to a group family text thread one (Tues)day.

This photo of my niece Vivi and me, taken while I was visiting the Bay Area, is just one example of our "Silly Face Tuesday" family text exchanges.

It many ways it says what I believe all our fun photo exchange say these days: "Love, light, connection and light-heartedness, we SEE you. You see us through." :-)

I share this with you today because I know that your brand of woman is also to bring perspective, love, light and a unique brand of reflection, creativity and curiosity to all of life's experiences.

Today on "Silly Face Tuesday,"  I invite you in…

What is or could be your "Silly Face Tuesday" and how could it see YOU through? 

As always, here's to enjoying your business and enjoying your LIFE, no matter what is happening or not happening in your world. 

Sending you all my Summer love.

Life is good,
