Commitment to excellence!

Sandra & Kym Yancey work tirelessly and with excellence helping women network & grow their business. www.ewomennetwork.com is a valuable resource for business women to connect with other like minded women.  I consider both of them to be role models.

Sandra points out “It takes team work to make the dream work!” I’d like to thank you for reading this blog and allowing Millionaire Moms to be a part of your team!  The photo below is of Kym and I when the Yancey’s recently visited Atlanta.

August 6-9, 2009 I have the privilege of conducting a “Millionaire Moms” breakout session at the eWomenNetwork conference. It’s will informative, fun and fantastic! Kristi Frank from season one of NBC’s The Apprentice,  Nadja Piatka from Nadja Foods and Barbara Carey, the inventor of Spinlash will be on the panel.  They are extremely knowledgable business women who have incredible stories to share of their journey to millionaire mom status.

I’ve recently had the opportunity to work with Fran Tarkenton and his talented staff. He is a terrific example of  someone who has spent his whole life dedicated to excellence. He is truly amazing and gracious to boot! I feel honored to be associated with him. I’ve been asked to write a blog for his website. I’ll be announcing more about that soon.

In case you can’t tell, I really admire these people!

P.S. I know I’m a goofball but I took a picture of Fran’s Viking helmet while sitting around waiting on my appointment. ;)

Many people falsely believe they are limited in intelligence. How many times have you heard “Oh, I’m not good with numbers” ? The fact is you have more potential then you could ever possibly use in this lifetime. The trick is figuring out what that is and using this genius as much as possible.

Dr. Howard Gardner of Harvard is founder of the concept of multiple intelligences. He says there are at least ten identifiable geniuses. Only two are measured by schools, verbal and mathematical.  The other eight are visio-spatial intelligence (art, design), entrepreneurial intelligence (ahem, see yourself there I wonder?:), physical or kinesthetic intelligence (sports), musical intelligence (playing instruments or writing music), interpersonal intelligence (playing well with others), intrapersonal intelligence (understanding yourself at a deeper level…think Deepak Chopra), intuitive intelligence (ability to sense the right thing to do or say), artistic intelligence (creating works of art), or abstract intelligence (physics, science).

Here’s a clue, ever been told you have a knack for something? Figure out your god given talent and structure your world around it. You will be more successful than you ever thought possible!

I just got home from a conference in San Francisco. I met a ton of people. The vast majority were wonderful but a few fell into this category!

As the founder of millionairemoms.com it is part of my job description to get up in front of people to speak, educate & inspire. I love this yet it’s a new world to me.

I spent several days listening to a speaker who was a mix between Jim Carey & Tony Robbins.  He was a bit over the top for the more conservative folks but I found him endearing, funny & smart.  I realized after hearing the positive and negative comments about him that you can’t please everyone.

I have decided I will be “uniquely” me in all aspects of millionairemoms.com. This blog will evolve to show the silly side of me as well as the seasoned entrepreneur. If I am going to work as hard as I do then I want to be surrounded by dynamic, fun loving entrepreneurs that love to laugh and get my sense of humor!

Let’s build a community of fun loving achievers! If  you know any good jokes or videos you’d like to see posted then let me know and we’ll make it happen.

Here’s a video that makes me laugh. These guys are from ATL.  It hits close to home in my world. I hope you like it too!

“How can an entrepreneur starting out in business expect to raise capital in today’s down market when the banks aren’t lending?”  This was a question posed to me recently. First, expect is a passive and weak word. It’s important to choose our words wisely and train ourselves to be solution based rather than problem focused.

I had an experience the other day that felt like a metaphor for my life. I was driving down a road I often get confused on. There are twists and turns that make it a challenge to remember which way to go.  I started feeling like I had made a wrong turn. I thought, “I’ll just go a little further and see.” Which I did. Ultimately though I doubted myself & turned around in favor of the “safe way”  I was familiar with.

I have been very busy writing my book due out in Spring 2009.  Today as I typed away I added some thoughts from millionaire mom, Nancy Bogart from www.jordanessentials.com. She is an incredible mom and business woman.

Nature has instilled fear in us as a protective mechanism. As a child I was fearful that an alligator lived under my bed at night. If I got out of bed it might get me. I learned over time that particular fear was completly false. As a teenager I was on diving team for five years. I was a powerful athlete but not the most graceful. The Coach had me dive the high board. Many people are fearful to even jump at this height. In order to go to state competition I was doing 2.5 pike front flips off of it. Was I fearful?

Last night I went to a “Ladies Night Out” to support Chilli Thomas from TLC, latest entrepreneurial adventure, www.bagsbychilli.com. I had recently interviewed her for my website www.millionairemoms.com and got invited. I went with a crew of girlfriends.

Kim Kiyosaki in her book “Rich Woman” throws out some pretty sobering statistics when it comes to women and money:
