The World of Sick

I will not go back into the world of sick. Or, if I use my words properly, I’m firmly ensconced in living healthy. The world of sick made for a way better title. Not so good in the world of transformation. And that’s where I reside. After my initial SPECT scan (I’ll have two for…

Fear

It’s back. Fear. I wasn’t admitting or talking about my fear. I pretended, it wasn’t there. And then, I had to. “Deanna, I already told you three times, I’m not repeating myself.” Dave claims with a raised voice. I can’t hide any more. In actuality, I wasn’t really hiding.

Lessons from a few Hummingbirds

For the last three summers, I have had the opportunity to witness four hummingbird nests be built and hopefully eight baby birds take flight. I say, hopefully, because currently there are two eggs still developing. What a privilege! I still can’t believe how fortunate I am. So what could we possibly learn from hummingbirds? I…

The Benefits of Collaboration

Being a Solo Entrepreneur is great. That doesn’t mean I work, totally alone. I’m going to recommend, that you surround yourself with people that support you both emotionally, and intellectually. Napoleon Hill developed the concept of Master Mind Alliance. Using the  collective power of friends/colleagues to further progress forward a plan/goal towards it’s proposed outcome. http://www.naphill.org/get-involved/starting-points/mastermind-alliances/…
