To create unlimited abundance, we need to tap into the source that resides within us. I help creative female entrepreneurs tap into their creativity and access their inner reserve of abundance. The connection with their inner self is to connect with their source of wisdom. By learning to connect with their inner wisdom, they learn to slow down, listen to their intuition and take internally inspired action.

During my creative mini retreat, I pack get inspired items into a bag to take with me. I also have a note book in my bag. The notebook has sections for various creative projects I am working on currently. In each section of my notebook, I have created a mind map. I was introduced to the concept of mind mapping years ago, while living in England with my family, through Tony Buzan’s book, Mind Maps. It is an engaging way to connect with your right brain and brainstorm ideas for working projects.

Although, in my last year when we were just a few in the class, my one lecturer told me I don’t “give it my all” and that this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. She could tell because I reminded her of herself. On the one hand, we don’t put too much pressure on ourselves but still work when there is work to be done, but on the other hand you will probably under achieve your whole life or at least seek the most undemanding jobs. University really teaches you a lot about yourself.

(4) Choose your battles wisely – Don’t rush to argue every time someone disagrees with you. Keep a cool head and avoid pointless arguments altogether.

I discovered that a list of ‘Empowering Whys’ is the single most important tool to use before starting a business, relationship or project. A ‘WHY LIST’ is what pulls people through the ‘eye of an needle’ when the motivation to push onward seems impossible and failure wants the upper hand.

So now that we have established keeping an open mind at all times, the next thing we have to do is to carefully assess the current situation. With the positive discipline techniques you have done, what has progressed so far? What styles are working and failing? Are they causing harm or did they make the situation better?

They are consistent over the long haul building their business – you don’t get to the top in sport or in business with just a 1-week or 1-month effort.

Cinderella’s carriage, wooden tractor models, a buck deer wall clock, coconut calypso jewelry – the list is endless! Whether for a cousin, aunt, brother, grandfather, whoever is on your list, find unusual birthday gifts that are certain to put a smile on their face. Don’t give them another gift that will be re-gifted or put in the top of the closet, never to be seen again!
