Mindset question? Will you move forward or shrink back in fear?

"In any given moment we have two options: to step forward into growth or to step back into safety."

Who Is Best Suited for this Relationship Economy?

Thought provoking post via +David Amerland .Perhaps sometimes age has its adventages even in a world that cherishes youth. Check this out.
When it comes to the Relationship Economy, do Women over 50 have an Advantage?
We so often hear that women over 50 feel they are discriminated against in the workplace, but we move from the Digital Economy into the Relationship Economy, do women over 50 actually have an advantage?
It was an exchange of comments with +David Amerland on a post by +Heather Bond on the weekend that prompted me to think about this topic - and write this post !

Life Is Better with CATS!

I love being able to write on my screened-in deck. Trippy loves to join me! Since it's enclosed, there's no danger of anything happening to her.

My animals inspire me and they're good company.

Follow your BLISS,

What Does It Mean to Love?

   “To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.”

  • B.L.I.S.S. Author Mentoring
    #1 bestselling author, speaker, mentor, storyteller, 2010 - present
    Do you have a burning desire to be a positive force in the world? Do you believe you have a book (or many books) inside you? Then we should definitely get better acquainted, because I turn visionaries into bestselling authors with grace, joy, and FUN! How? You get there by following the butterfly... the B.L.I.S.S. Butterfly, that is! This system ensures you have more than "just a book"... You truly create, live and leave your legacy.
Basic Information
Looking for
Other names
The Story Lady, Celebrity Author Mentor, Blind Mentor
I'm a wacky witty wordsmith who loves a good story and a good book.
Welcome, Hero!

What is the B.L.I.S.S. Butterfly System?

The butterfly begins life in a lowly state, as do we all. The transformation through which a butterfly goes does not CHANGE her nature. The transformation calls forth the true essence of what has been inside all the time so that she can fly free and live her true purpose in life.

As I worked with visionary entrepreneurs, I developed a system that is easy, playful, and full of life. This is the B.L.I.S.S. Butterfly Author Success System, based on that gorgeous fluttering creature of light, air and transformation.

Each letter of #bliss is a part of the butterfly. The B is the body, and the rest of the letters represent wings.

When you are rooted in your purpose and all aspects of your author journey are healthy and harmonious, your BLISS Butterfly will fly free.

When your butterfly is missing parts, you'll findit hard to turn your dreams into a reality.
  • B is for BEING on purpose. - looking inside to find your purpose 
  • L is for LIVING and leaving your LEGACY - writing your message.
  • I is for IMPRINTING your message into people's hearts and lives.- publishing (manifesting your message)
  • S is for SHARING your message with those who desire and need it - that's what book marketing really is!
  • S is for SERVING your audience.well - prospering you, your loved ones, and your beloved causes. The more you SERVE your audience, the more prosperity you have to spread! 
You can become a B.L.I.S.S. Butterfly

I love connecting with people in my free webinars, around the social web, and in the Awakened Author Adventure Premium Members home.

If you'd like to enter the Cocoon of Transformation and bring out your true colors, the first step to take is to begin your 7-day free trial Awakened Author Adventure Membership.

Once you are a full member, you will have an opportunity to enter the cocoon where I will help you formulate our vision and create a plan.

Random Facts about Me

Before getting into the "meat" of this profile, I thought you might like to know 3 random facts about me so you have a sense of who I am.

1) When I was young, my dad worked as a Master of Ceremonies at a club He got home very late, and I would go lie on the floor just inside the door so he could be the prince 5o awake Sleeping Beauty from the evil spell.

2)  I used to write Doctor Who fan fiction when I was in  high school.

3) As a child, I could never watch the 3 Stooges, because their violence toward each other made me cry. I still find aggression upsetting.

2 Things I LOVE to do that affect YOU!*

My favorite things to do are writing fiction and helping visionary, life-changing individuals turn their purpose and passion into published books.

As for fiction, I adore writing visionary fiction stories that stick with you long after you have finished reading. And be careful what you say and do, because I'm a keen observer and an attentive eavesdropper! You just might end up as a villain in my next novel!

Helping authors is such fun! I love hanging out with people who love stories and want to make a difference.

Who am I and how have I earned the right to guide you?

Short bio:

I am an author, speaker and mentor living in rural Missouri with my 2 cats inside and a couple of guinea hens outside. 
A contributor in 24 books, I am the author of several books of my own, including #1 Bestseller, Mover and Shaker, The Peace SeedPersonal and Global Transformation through StorytellingThe Instant VIP,  Instant Author Formula: 6 Simple Methods for How to Write a Book FAST!, My fiction books include, A Tasty Morsel and The Assassin and the Prince.

Here is what some of my students & I have accomplished with the help of the BLISS System:
  • +Lasse Rouhiainen  becae an international #1 b est selling author within hours of releasing his first book, Smart Social Media. He achieved equaolly rapid success with the Spanish version of this book as well as the English and Spanish versions of 101 Video marketing Tips and Strategies for Small Businesses. His books are still strong sellers months later.
  • +Chris Downs reached #1 bestseller status in just 18 hours after his book How to Grow Great Heirloom Tomatoes hit Kindle. This book is a consistent top seller well over a year after release, which is not all that easy to do today... unless you have the right systems.
  • Jeremy Boone made 1 phone call that created 15,000 book sales while I was his mentor.
  • Amazon put my fiction book The Assassin and the Prince as the headline book in a customer mailer to fantasy fiction fans.
  • My and my students' books hit bestseller within anywhere from 2 hours to 10 days of publication.
When you work with any of my programs or with me as your mentor you start by tapping into the true power behind your book. Everything you do goes back to your core message. Then, as  you write, publish, share and serve, you provide the perfect solutions and stories that your ideal readers CRAVE.
