An evening with Wisconsin Women Entrepreneurs

Tuesday evening I went to a Wisconsin Women Entrepreneurs Southcentral Chapter, Inc. monthly dinner meeting. The event included networking, dinner, and a panel discussion.

As a new entrepreneur this was one of the most interesting, knowledge gaining, empowering evenings I have experienced.  I had attended another event recently so I was becoming familiar and comfortable with talking one-on-one about who I am and what it is that I do.  After the great dinner each of us had to stand and in approximately 30 seconds introduce ourselves and what we do.  I really enjoyed seeing and hearing so many women from a wide variety of business areas, stand up and proudly state what they did. I felt honored and proud to be even a small part of such a group.  Next, each table talked and prepared a question for the panel to answer.  I learned that many of the women had the same questions and concerns that I do.  How to market your business? What makes you unique? Should I offer discounts? and so on.

My wish for all new business owners is that they are all able to attend  a similar event & learn so much in such a short period of time.

Thank you Sally

Say what you need to say OR thank you John Mayer

I have a smart phone (sometimes I call it my smart ass phone) that has all of my music on it.  I usually select Shuffle for the variety.  However, it plays what it thinks I need to hear vs. what I want to hear.  Recently, “Say” by John Mayer has become a personal favorite of my phone.  There is a line that says “Say what you need to say” and this line has come to mean many things for me, including today’s lesson.

I am going to share with you one of the easiest, most basic way to bring more positive experiences, love, prosperity, health, etc. into your life and that is to say, by speaking out loud what you want. There are two ways to speak situations and things into your life. Everyday sayings & planned sayings.

First let me clarify something you do not have to believe what you are saying, you just have to say it.  My bachelor’s degree was in Psychology and there are a number of methods for changing unwanted behaviors.  One method entails changing the person’s mind to change their behavior, thereby changing their world. Saying what you want can and will change your behaviors & change your experiences, your world. Why does this work because you are using your gift of oral “prophecy” to create.

Everyday sayings

Your everyday words, utterances are powerful because when you speak you are usually in a relaxed state and there are no mental blocks to their manifesting. Be careful because your casual words can bring about results that you may or may not want.

Consider my personal example. I have been saying for years that I will not look old. I do not mind getting older but I do not want to look older.  Most people think my adult daughter and I are sisters and never accurately guess my age. I have recently lost weight and people say I look even younger. Casual remarks spoken over time will manifest results in due time.

Use your words carefully.  Always say something positive about yourself like, “I am so lucky” versus “I never seem to get a break.”

Words spoken about others can also create conditions.  So use your words to predict good for others. For example you can say, “I predict that you will find the house that you have been looking for.”

Planned Sayings The second way to bring about change is by using planned words, otherwise known as affirmations. There is enormous power in words and one boldly stated affirmation describing the positive experience you want in your life will help you claim it quickly.

Affirmations How To:  Set aside time everyday and say out loud bold words describing the good you want in your life.  Declare your words with confidence & happiness.  Repeat for a number of times, over a period of time. I can not say how many times or for how long, you will know when to stop–also known as releasing.  Once released know that your words are working for you.

I walk for exercise most days and I have two affirmations that I use. I repeat first one a number of times, for a few minutes and then I say the next one a number of times for a few minutes.  First I say, “With every step I take I loose fat, weight and inches”  and next II say a poem I made up. “1×9 and I look & feel fine.” “1×5 great sakes alive” “1×3 woo look at me” “1xx, 1xx, 1xx this is it” I have not changed my diet much and  have lost  fat, weight and inches. ….. and yes I am loosing weight.

Let me know how it’s going for you.

Women In Focus Does It Again

The Women In Focus organization held their 25th fundraising “I Have aDream Ball” this past Saturday.  As a new member –this is my first year– I was honored and excited to be a participant. We had 411 attendees, our largest number ever, which is even more impressive when you realize it was going on at the same time the Packers were in the first round of the playoffs.

In April of this year approximately 13 high school minority students will receive $2000.00 scholarships for college.  What a good feeling to be a part of something that will so positively effect a number of lives.

I took the photos of us getting the room set-up and a member’s spouse took the group photos.  I was so caught up in the moment that I only took a few photos of the actual event.  (There is always next year). Enjoy.
