Two new radio shows!

I recently embarked on the adventure of becoming a radio show host.

In my effort to study and report on people who have dealt with change in a positive way and those who have learned to respond to the battles life brings our ways, I've created two bi-weekly shows on two different radio networks.

This week's guest will be amazing!!!

Shows are live and listeners may call in with their own questions for these guests!

Learn who my guest will be this week by joining these…

Author in Business Book Tour at Microsoft Store

I've been blessed these past few months to be part of a book tour at the Microsoft store.  

December was my first in Atlanta, GA.  January was in Houston, TX and this month was this last weekend in Austin, TX. 

Third time is the charm apparently because we were finally able to capture video of my moment in the spotlight.  

I love investing in others by sharing a bit of my story...I hope this little tidbit of my story encourages you as well.…

Book

A couple of months ago, I embarked on a new adventure of writing the first of what I hope will be many books.

You see, years ago, I came to a realization.  As a young girl, I had grown up constantly looking for my Prince Charming to come and whisk me away from all of my troubles.  It was this mindset that stopped me from accepting the one man God had for me as he was.  I had to stop looking to my husband to be my Prince Charming and start realizing that not only was he a…

Why you should consider custom phone numbers

In this day and age, most of us have mobile phone and use them as our primary means of communication with the world.

As we move across the country, I see an increasing number of people who choose to keep their 'original phone number' due to so many people having it. Old colleagues, good friends and even family. Not to mention all the saving and membership clubs that you used that old phone number for. However, the issue here is that everyone has that number and, that means you have no… Continue

The precious gift of time

Today I went with a group of leaders to give back to those who have given so much...we took valentines to people in nursing homes all over Houston.

What a joy it was to see their smiles when the kids broight them valentines and a small bag of cookies....to be able to spread a little cheer to those who aren't able to get out as much now but have given so much all their lives.

Throughout the time, I heard one common line.."I'm not from Houston but my (fill in the blank) does and I know… Continue

Public Speaking (eeek!)

Public speaking is something I both love and hate.  I absolutely adore inspiring others but oh how nerve wracking it is to be standing in front of hundreds or thousands of people and wondering if your message is getting across.

I recently ran across this article and found it to be fascinating. I thought others here might also find it of value.…

Change

So often, we are tempted to accept life where it is. 

That it will just be this way forever and we might as well just learn to be okay with it..

We strive for the "american dream"...to marry that one spouse, to get that one job and to buy that one house, living in the same city until we die. 

There's nothing wrong with that dream if it's what you want but what do we do when life doesn't go the way we want?

You grab a hold of it and accept that it MUST…

Captions on Cisco Phones

Recently, I was asked to participate in a video Cisco and ClearCaptions were making regarding captioned phones. They flew me down to California in February and taped the video on Cisco headquarters.

The video is finally out and there is a nice press release too! The words I spoke were my own and I was not compensated for my part in this video.

This service is now available at my employer's site because I asked a simple question at a business dinner one night. To me, this is…

Clear Captions for Cisco

So...on Friday, I was part of a video Cisco was doing about captioned phones for the hard of hearing in business. It was a blast! I thought I would be nervous with the camera, lights, and sound equipment all around. Instead, it was exhilarating! Now I can think of nothing else other than doing it again! Have any of you had such an experience?

New Favorite Quote!

Every so often I find a great quote I really love.

This one, in particular, I found today:

When there's that moment of 'Wow, I'm not really sure I can do this,' and you push through those moments, that's when you have a breakthrough. Sometimes that's a sign that something really good is about to happen. You're about to grow and learn a lot about yourself.”

Marissa Mayer, Yahoo CEO

I found this particularly motivating due to the fact I'm expecting to go through some…
