Syria & Getting Hands Dirty

Landing in this season of a new kind of giving where money sent becomes getting my hands dirty, I’ve never felt more successful.

If you’re searching for what you’ve coined as “more”, for how to grow yourself and therefore your business, for peace, for “what’s next?”, whether you’re an experienced this or aspiring that and whether you have X or Y coming in, I offer you this “get-to-do” (you get to do more in this life!): enter into your own active and new phase of getting hands dirty.

This morning…

As I read up on the tragic and latest in Aleppo, Syria, and remembered the faces of the men and women in Fillipiada, Greece, I felt, then planned. I may be back home, and far, but the hearts and hopes of these people, are like ours — human and in need — and they are never far from our ability to serve and support, even if it means simply sending a donation for now (Project Hope (I worked with Danielle last month): http://www.gofundme.com/project-hope-4-kids-2wg89sk). I’m looking at the calendar for when I can head back to help set up a new camp or return to the last, which, has forever branded itself a part of my soul.

This afternoon…

As I finished listening to a voicemail an hour ago from the hospice director letting me know that my patient has declined and is in the active dying phase, I feel — and plan, too. Their 66th wedding anniversary is Thursday, hence an honoring that can be organized for when I visit that day, regardless of what is happening or what’s transpired by then. xo

If you’re a woman who constantly asks more from herself, her family, her business/platform and brand (or you want to be that woman — the mother of her own reinvention), the new MGI business mastermind the CEO Soul Circle + service element starts in February.

2016 may feel like it’s broken a part of your spirit, but you’re the ultimate creator — today — and in 2017.

Feel, please feel, *and* plan…

Enjoy your business, enjoy your life!

Unlikely Brand Thoughts

Anything that grows you, grows your movement (the thing we confusingly call your business).

Spend less time worrying about what makes you look good and more on what makes you grow good.

Self awareness + responsibility in all the ways that comes.

Tough conversations.

Break ups.

Make ups.

Travel.

Supporting others who will never become your clients (service/true generosity).

Eventually what makes you look good is what’s grown you — good. More now than ever in your world, these two need to become the same thing.

Personal development IS brand development.

In fact, it’s everything development.

Enjoy your business, enjoy your life!

Life is good,

So(ul) Rich (and our new mastermind)

When we get our hands dirty in service, near or far, supporting others who have not paid us a penny for that support, we get so(ul) rich.

Moving from donating money to (also/or) giving of our time is a unique experience and opportunity, and, as I realized recently supporting the refugees in a camp in Greece, an expression of a deeper engagement ~ a re-engagement ~ in life (and what it means in this day and age to do business and *give* from that business and the deeper part of ourselves).

In truth, energetically, from this active brand of generosity, comes the more physical or tangible prosperity you also want.

As I work on MGI’s next business mastermind, The CEO Soul Circle, whose intention it is to support the growth of your authentic brand and business revenue, while you also start or grow a cause close to your heart (a service trip together at the end of our six months will act as the so(ul) rich celebration), I’m sitting (sans the red dress ;)) in gratitude for following the nudge to create what is most needed.

Just as we can be moms AND moguls, grieve AND experience joy, have a healthy family AND our own healthy body, we can build financially-successful businesses AND also greatly fill our soul and purpose bank accounts. It needn’t always be about more for ourselves. It can be about more for all of us.

Message usĀ if you’re interested in hearing more about our new mastermind starting in February. Right now, I’ve planned for the group to be small and a few spots are saved for current clients, but I’d love to make sure those who have followed my journey here, get the chance to see if it’s for them.

I can tell you this: it’s for you, the you who knows that folding greater generosity into her business model and baking it into her bottom line, is her business.

Enjoy your business, enjoy your life!

Life is good,
