#CourseinHappiness   #InspirationinAction  
September is coming fast and I find that the fall, with all the back-to-school and change to the season is the time to reflect and sort out what you want to accomplish before the end of the year.

 In September of 2013 I told my story for the first time. It was all thanks to +Kathie Donovan's *The Course in Happiness*, I had taken in March of 2013.  Don't wait, get signed up for The Course in Happiness happening Sep 19th and 20th.  

Here's why i believe every woman should take this course. 

It was 2013, when I signed up for Kathy's The Course In Happiness.

I was going to support my friend. She had won a ticket and didn't want to go alone.

I thought the course may be little less advanced than the hardcore self-development levels, I thought I had attained in my self-mastery journey. (I can still hear the Universe Laughing out Loud: WOW the joke was on me!!)

I have been immersed in some pretty intensive work since 2004. I felt I was quite far along in my journey. The Course in Happiness workshop was a two day event that, blew up my life, in the best possible way.  It literally changed me. It changed how I felt about ME. It reshaped me to Make it Matter when it comes to me. 

All the work I had done, for the previous nine years, was neatly tied up in a bow, that weekend. The Universe presented me with a great gift. It was the AHA piece of the puzzle, the final brush stroke on the canvas of all the work I had done. It opened me to the possibilities of me. 

I finally opened up about my story. I am relieved of a huge burden, I had been carrying for decades., I have also made new friends, become part of an incredibly supportive group of like-minded women, who all understand the changes we and our world  are going through.

I can't tell you exactly what you will get out of the course. It is different for everyone. I can tell you that you will get exactly what you need, at this time in your life.

Are you ready to be the Best You? Are you ready to Live Life to Your Max? (Whatever that means to you) Be kind to yourself and gift you with this incredible course.
Make sure you sign up for the session, beginning September 19th.

I look forward to hearing about your experience, after you complete The Course in Happiness.

Elaine thank you for sharing your experience with The Course in Happiness. The wonderfully surprising thing about the workshop is that everyone takes away exactly what they need. I feel blessed to share the adventure and I love how our community is growing.

How NOT to respond when the world is watching!   +Justin Bariso  has written a great post and I wanted to add this:
Even though it was a PR stunt, and even though we all know it wouldn't happen, its too bad that McD's CEO didn't pause before this really snarky, condescending post on Facebook..
McD's own CEO Steve Esterbrook said Burger King should simply have made a phone call...  
Bet Esterbrook now wishes, that he's simply picked up the phone, to respond instead of using social media!   Great lesson for everyone in business.
A PR stunt for peace day is quickly turning into a war between America's two burger giants.

Brilliant not peaceful. Free advertising. I too was put off by the McDonald's executive snarky reply. He should've been funny. Like an offer to buy out restaurant brands international for about half market value.

#Transgender #LoveisAllthatMatters    we cannot know or presume to understand another, when have never walked in their shoes.  My friend +Carter Gibson  shared this article by his friend Sarah McBride.. a touching, heartbreaking and loving look into a life well lived ,just too too short. 
I was Sarah McBride's orientation leader in college before she was Sarah. I've the distinct honor of watching this wonderful become blossom into American University's Student Body President, intern at the White House, and ultimately become a leader in the transgender equality movement. 

Her story about how she lost her husband Andrew (also transgender) is one of the most heart-wrenching, powerful stories I've ever come across. I never knew Andrew, but, through Sarah's writing, I've learned just how much of an impact he had on Sarah and how important his role was / is in Sarah's journey. 

I spent the first twenty minutes of my day today sobbing my sad tears into proud tears - and I highly recommend this read. Sarah McBride's story (so far) is what movies are made of and where heroes come from. This is one of the most honest, well-written pieces I've ever read. 
“If it turns out that this is incurable, would you marry me?” is not your traditional marriage proposal, but then again,…

Elaine Says

After losing part of my leg, gaining some metal, titanium and other new parts as well multiple surgeries and hospital stays  I am Kinda Bionic and I am uniquely positioned to speak to the concept ‘always get back up‘..I play the ‘Glad” Game every day, and find the humor in almost everything.  My Gran & Life have taught me much and I want to share that wisdom with the world. The road has not always been easy or smooth. I feel the ups and downs have molded me into the woman I am today.

I survived being crushed between 3 vehicles and I survived a botched surgery that turned into multiple surgeries and decades of recovery, I am ‘kinda bionic’. I believe in creating your best story in business and in your life.  I am covered in scars, I used to hide from shame i now proclaim them to be my life marks. I’m here to show you that you can rise about, turn any situation around and live your best life in business. .

I have had to re start in business numerous times, after long term illness.  I understand how life can get in the way. I know how to maximize the least amount of time, while committing 100% to every task.

I live my can-do attitude. I give you the how-to, so you too, Can-Do! I love to see and hear the client’s excitement from multiple wins, resulting from the tweaks and changes we have implemented for them in search and social media.
