If you’re going into business you have to set your direction, look at your competition and make a plan
Be in the moment, You can’t be somewhere else
We must have a strong value system and execute those values in everything you do.
Your values must come out in your persona
“Presence in Motion is key”
Understand your impact when you walk through a door
Everything you do is strategically engendered
Impeccable image so when people see you they know what to expect

Who does she think she is? To quote Oprah “I am so full of myself I am running over and I have enough to give to everyone I meet”
“Some people feel empowered by disempowering others” and if someone is feeling down “lift them”
Sometimes you have to love people from afar
I will not give up until I reach the goal
Am I standing in my way or moving to the next level? Who am I allowing to stand in my way or create barriers?
Be your own person. Don’t follow the crowd
Anger is one letter from danger
Abundance is giving back to the community.
