Business travel can and should be fun, and not all work. At least that's what I believe.
I was invited to speak at The 1st Women After Restoration (W.A.R.) Conference in Atlanta, GA this past weekend. I was able to feed, uplift and encourage others by sharing how I was homeless August 26, 2011 and six short years later, I'm standing in front of them proving you can be restored after losing everything.
Getting back on your feet after losing EVERYTHING doesn't happen over night, but it can happen if you get your mind right, set goals, seek and secure wise mentors and - most importantly - FOLLOW THEIR ADVICE.
I'm a proven mentor because of what I've done, and believe it ... if I can do it anyone can:
I'm getting ready for another new beginning. And I'm excited about what's in store. Are you?
As each month starts I pull out my calendar and fill in my plans for the days ahead. I can't plan for everything, but I plan for what I know is coming to the best of my ability. Planning enables me to focus and be intentional about my priorities.
April 2017 was really busy because I traveled the first three weeks of the month. While I planned pretty well for my trips, there were things that came up that weren't on my schedule. But, guess what ... everything worked out for my great because of wisdom, problem-solving and support.
I'm thankful for new opportunities to travel, mentor, speak, teach, etc. but I'm reminded more than ever how important planning, preparing and prioritizing are. As my life gets busier and demands on my time increase, I have to be diligent about how I spend it.
This is true for everyone, of course, but crucial for me now that I've (and everyone else who has) launched out into greater realms of influence.
Here are some tips for those who have entered new seasons of more - more clients, activities, travel, opportunities and like:

Do you have social media friends that you follow simply because you love the foolishness they post? I have one who's particularly entertaining. She posts the craziest commentary and I often read the posts, and whincing, say, "That's why she's still single."
Here are three no-no's that frequent her commentary that repel men of quality from her life:
If you think you may be repelling the quality of man you want in your life because of your words, I can help. I've turned things around for myself and for many other women as well. Book a Communication Superstar Session or schedule a call so you can attract what you truly desire in a man.
It's 2017 ... time to do what's necessary to get the relationship you want.
