What Breaks Your Heart Most (+ 2017 p.s. message)

You’ll have enough. In fact, you’ll have more *and* enough…

The more you continue growing your business in 2017 allowing yourself to be motivated by philanthropy (self-serving ~> soul-serving), you’ll find an emotional currency and purpose-driven energy, that’s almost impossible to match.

With that greater purpose and unique energy, the money that rolls in, won’t stop. Giving or, let’s say, energy genuinely going out, is energy that comes in… it’s love and it’s law. Love law. (Love that law).

But, the first domino, especially today, is the ‘getting hands dirty/being more supremely involved’ domino. 2017 asked us loooong ago to step.it.up.

If you’re your own boss and even if you’re not, get a plan together for how this will happen.

You are a philanthropist.

A human for humans, a humanitarian.

You are both the woman who is known for forgiving (no time for drama when you’re here to change the way we all live, for the better) and the business woman known for her giving.

There are many, many causes already started (or those who need a woman just like you to start them), aligned with your business/movement/brand.

There’s no shortage.

These causes are looking for hands (yours) to bring, lift, write and carry, and hearts and ears (also yours) to sit alongside to listen…to be with those who don’t feel loved, a part of, or listened to.

Having experienced it first-hand this year in Greece at the Filippiada refugee camp and via hospice locally in Los Angeles the last six months, I can tell you these ongoing direct experiences, have completely transformed everything I think/do/say and, most what I work towards and will be supporting others to do more of, alongside building their brands. And, it’s the same thing.

All of it, everything you do or don’t do, either grows or builds you and this entity we call your personal brand ~ or it doesn’t. When you consistently build, or help others grow, you meet next level, “external” revenue growth.

In short, your brand is most powerful when you’re either heard/seen having grown yourself or when you’re heard giving from it and telling *those* stories…

I know you feel it as deeply as I do because I’ve had countless courageous conversations with many women about all of the above…let’s ride that wave of genuine emotion and be that feminine force, the enriched echo of creativity, purpose and service.

There may problems and challenges around us and around the globe, but, part of the solution(s) lie in using our genius, creativity and ability to create something, seemingly out of “nothing”. When we do this, we’ve begun to realize our true potential as entrepreneurs and human beings.

The way many of us have been doing business no longer feels in exact alignment with what the world actually needs. Continue sending money to your chosen organizations, and also consider folding in the getting hands, hearts and ears involved on-the-ground piece. Having a direct experience with what moves you will move the world.

You’re here to move the world.

Enjoy your business, enjoy your life!

Life is good,
