Dreams OR Obstacles?
Brigitte Chiaravalle from Our Animal Connections is our winner! She has won a package or services and products worth over $400!
The first question that our survey asked was "Describe your DREAM for your business that you either want to start or already have. What would it be like in a perfect world?"
We were blown away by the answers and the women dreaming big. We don't see how each and every one of them cannot succeed. And it is our hope that The Women In Motion Business Group is Part of that by offering resources, services, and most importantly a community of support.
HERE ARE SOME TIDBITS OF THE DREAMS SHARED WITH US
- I'd be providing amazing customer service and my clients would be recommending my company to someone every day! I'd have 10 employees that love their job and their number one directive....to be the best they can be at their job.
- 10-12 clients/week...
- Become a worldwide brand...
- To be able to reach out and touch others that may have put their dreams on permanent hold. To let them know that they deserve to realize their dreams & offer the support they may need to reach the next step.
- To offer grants/loans; coaching; resources etc. All in an easy to find location and with "fingers" out in the community to make them aware
- I would love to start a business where I can work when I want to and NOT work when I want to...I would like a business that combines all my interests.
- We would showcase all the positivity that can be sought out and shared in this world with spiritual backbone. All that enter there would become more evolved in every way with great energy shared/vibrations raised, creating a BETTER WORLD.
- My business would be international in scope and I would be giving 3 workshops per week and have the other days off to write and market my books and CDs....
- To become a fully established & recognized non-profit that provides animal rescue facilitation services to shelters & rescue organizations and individuals doing rescue work...
- A perfect world would be where I can help others (many others) feel empowered to reach their goals and dreams. Of course, it would be great if these ventures are lucrative too
- The perfect Dream would be to have a waiting list for my classes
- A business that has residual income for retirement. Part of the struggle of the self-employed is having to create our own pension.

Jennifer Ettinger was not always a successful best-selling author, fitness expert, TV personality and enthusiastic USANA Associate.

Jennifer became tired of being tired. She despised the life she was leading and desperately wanted to be freed from the bonds of her illness. So Jennifer fought to get her life back. She began reading up on her conditions and in every book she read observed four key elements of...

Have you noticed how we live in a world which has traded personal awareness and responsibility for powerlessness and synthetic solutions? The intent of this article is to merely ignite the thought process of overturning this culture of sickness by learning why natural remedies work and drugs don’t. Our bodies are always seeking balance and all the parts depend on each other to work properly. While our bodies have the potential for dis-ease, there exists an internal system for self-healing that can be reinforced with natural remedies.
Before the advancement of modern medicine, people relied upon plant resources, like essential oils, to remedy health concerns. Incorporating essential oils into a daily routine can effectively address the everyday wellness needs of your family. An essential oil is a liquid that is distilled from leaves, stems, shrubs, trees, seeds, bushes, flowers bark and roots of plants. The life blood of plants serve as natural remedies; they are
· hormone balancing
The highest quality oils, therapeutic grade, are made from organic plants and distilled at low temperatures to retain the organic healing properties. Simply, they keep the human body in a whole state of balance. This means they are particularly designed to:
Drugs are synthetic, dead matter; inhibit, block, and interrupt normal bodily functions, in addition to having negative side effects. These reasons verify why natural remedies work and drugs don’t.
Essential Oils can be extremely effective, safe, economical and easy to use while tending to a whole range of health issues, right in your own home:
· Anti-bacterial properties make them highly effective for sanitizing, disinfecting, deodorizing and air purification, as well.
· Some essential oils make excellent toxin free cleaning agents for removal of grease, oil, carpet stains, crayon, etc.
· Powerful anti-oxidant properties in some essential oils make them amazingly effective in anti-aging, energy and health giving applications both alone and when combined with supplements.
· And of course, nothing beats the power of essential oils in personal care products for skin, hair and personal hygiene.
Additionally, essential oils are easy to use and further maintains why natural remedies work. The 3 simple applications of oils are:
§ Oral Ingestion
Learning how to use oils is not hard. Once you get accustomed to using them as you would use other remedies, you will discover many more uses to suit your unique needs.
Making the decision to exchange toxic products for natural ones is an active step in bringing balance to all areas of your life and that of your family. What are you waiting for? Start NOW to see what Natural Remedies work positively in your home.

These 3 elements must be firmly in place for you to have a thriving, evolving business.
Reading = Research
Get a plan – remember the last time you got in your car to go to an event and thought you knew the way and you didn’t! It caused a lot of stress, anxiety and lost time. Don’t be the fool I was and start your business without a plan!
Having a simple one-page plan that maps out your course will save you time, money and frustration. I know firsthand. Before you start your plan define precisely who you will be serving. Read about them. Learn their struggles, feel their pain. Research solutions that are already out there.
Research = reading, lots of reading! But, before you read you must know who you are serving. Who is your target audience? Once you have that definition, you can begin the process of uncovering some really great pieces of info to make uniquely yours to present to your audience.
You do not have to re-invent the wheel. This does not mean you plagiarize EVER. You are simply researching and learning how to make your own unique brand based on what’s already out there. Researching ideas!
Writing = Marketing
Learning how to write is an essential component to a majorly successful marketing campaign. The old adage – it’s not what you say but how you say it – really does matter here. Of course, it goes without saying you must ALWAYS stay in your integrity when “talking to” prospects. The TRANSFORMATIONAL VALUE MUST ALWAYS BE PRESENT IN ALL YOUR CONVERSATIONS AND COPY.
When you tell your story Differentiate Yourself!
And, here’s how – no one wants to know how wonderful your business is (and, it is wonderful). They want to hear how you are going to solve a problem they are having! Be different in the sense that you are presenting you and your company as the solution your prospects need!
Copywriters have a term called “swipe file”
What’s a swipe file?
A swipe file is a collection of proven advertising and sales letters that get powerful, positive results. Collecting swipe file material is a common practice used by copywriters as a reference of ideas for projects. These files and ideas are often swiped from other competitors and marketers.
A swipe file can be a literal paper folder or it can be housed on your computer. It serves as a source of inspiration – to help you through creative blocks! Don’t worry. Swipe files aren’t stealing!
Arithmetic = Cash Flow
All small business people need to be aware of the financial side of their business. If you are like me, you may tend to not like that side of it, but let me tell you, once you get systems into place to manage your money you, will attract more of it, and you will LOVE that!
Most of the time, when entrepreneurs talk about their numbers, they get a deer-in-the-headlights look. To a lot of people, it feels like an overly complicated process to track your money, and I’m here to tell you it DOESN’T HAVE TO BE! My entire business and life is built on simplicity.
In simple terms, you need a way to register money in and money out. For some people, that MIGHT be an elaborate accounting program or a group of accountants, and that’s fine if that’s your thing. Maybe your thing is using Quicken or your bank’s system. My point is that there are so many options out there. You need to explore and find what is most comfortable for you. If you are a newbie, maybe you simply want to use a handwritten spreadsheet. There is no right or wrong way to track your money. It’s as unique as you are.
One thing I am SURE of is – the energy you put into tracking (paying attention to) your money the more of it you will draw to you! Happy Tracking!
There are so many do’s and don’t in the entrepreneurial world to navigate through every day that it’s easy to get caught up in the process. My simplest piece of advice is twofold:
- TRUST YOUR GUT
- HAVE A MENTOR TO HELP GUIDE YOU

Discover How to Turn Surviving Into Thriving By Learning How to Create Your Own Economy Using 4 Simple TipsBy Veronica Drake
I want to clarify I am not an economist, and I do not have any special training in economics. What I am is a successful do it yourself, think out of the box woman who when told it can’t be done takes on the challenge of doing it! The it in this case being the start up of my business in THIS economy! How many times have you let THIS ECONOMY affect you? I want to help you create a new way of thinking and being starting today.
Someone who studies the economy is called and economist. The main job of an economist, no matter what the specialty, is to examine the inner workings of the economy of interest relative to their field of expertise and make predictions and recommendations based on those factors.
For example, an economic expert looking at housing and seeing a slowdown may advise a company making air conditioning or furnace units to begin to cut back on their production, as demand is likely to wane. This helps the company prepare for a slowdown by avoiding becoming overstocked or overstaffed, thus adding to the long-term financial stability of the institution. Think of it as a check and balance system.
From this point forward it’s time to consider your brand (YOU) your own economy and you are the economist of your brand. You are the economist of YOU and YOUR BRAND. You are going to look at the inner workings of YOU! Creating Mindset is a huge piece of this puzzle.
What I want to show you is exactly how focusing on you/ your brand will ultimately affect the masses. From an energetic perspective it’s really very basic; what you think about your bring about. To complete that equation you MUST follow up with INSPIRED ACTION!
I think we would all agree the success to anything you build is the strength of the foundation you build on. In order to create a strong global economy there must be an investment in building a foundation; included are, investing adequately in schooling, healthcare, transportation and so on. As it relates to YOUR personal economy your investment is equally important.
Below are 4 areas you MUST invest in to build a solid foundation:
3. Self Development
4. Mind Set
#1 “An education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don't.”
I love the saying you don’t know what you don’t know. At first it sounds kind of silly but when you really stop and listen to the words it makes you wonder what you don’t know and what if you did know! I am always inspired to go and find out what I need to know!
Education is the 1st component to creating your own successful economy. You will always find education comes in all shapes and sizes and it arrives in the form of textbooks, human beings, and life lived. In order to create a solid foundation for your economy you want to make sure you invest in all 3 forms. I am a huge advocate for learning. I am also a very out of the box thinker and I never have expectations of where the learning will come from.
I have learned firsthand how it is so important to get educated in your specific area of expertise and to keep learning and adding to what you already know. I like to think of my learning in layers. The 1st layer being a very broad search of the many facets of what I am looking to learn. For example, I have always known I was going to make a difference in women’s lives. I was always curious about their lives, their core beliefs, and why they did the things they did. Once I got that layer I went on the next which was to education myself formally in metaphysics the study of ontology, the actual study of why we are here. I got a degree in spiritual counseling in metaphysics and then it was time to go deeper. My next level was to actually study with psychologists to understand the patterns of thought and feeling and how they are interconnected and you never have one without the other. You get the picture!
Tip #1 Invest in getting educated. Define clearly what it is you want to offer the world and then be open to the continuous learning.
#2 "A lot of people have gone further than they thought they could because someone else thought they could."
Support is the 2nd component to creating your own successful economy. You cannot do it alone. Let me say that again. YOU CANNOT DO IT ALONE. There is an undeniable strength in team.
I will be completely transparent with you and tell you for a long time I tried to row my own boat and resisted allowing anyone to help me. I studied, I added to my knowledge of the subject I longed to bring to the world but I just couldn’t seem to get it lifted off the ground to the level that I wanted to. I was told over and over what a wonderful service I provided. I was a featured guest on a lot of radio shows, I was the featured expert in tele-summits and live events, but I just couldn’t reach the next level UNTIL I invested in a mentor! It took me a LONG time to realize that and I am bringing it to light for you so you don’t have to struggle like I did.
I made excuses for not investing in a mentor; I can’t afford it, or no one really knows my business like me, or my business is good enough just as it is. All those excuses were born out of fear. Fear that I might be successful. The truth is my money mindset kept me small for a very, very long time. I lived out my family legacy of never having enough. It was the mindset I was unconsciously building my business and my life on! Whew, did that create a major mess!
Being true to who I am I decided to re-open the wound of my money story and clean it out once and for all. I won’t lie that was some intense work and with the help of Spirit, great psychotherapist friends and a lot of inner work I became whole.
It’s funny because once I became whole I realized exactly how incomplete I really was. All the sudden I knew what was missing! I needed a team to support me. I hired my technical persons, my personal coaches, accountants and so on.. It does take a village! LOL
Tip #2 Invest emotionally, energetically and financially in the right support team. It will save you A LOT of MONEY.
#3 Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.—Aristotle
The 3rd component is YOU, investment in YOU. I want you to really savor this and breathe it all in and let it settle into your core. Your outside life (business, relationships) will only develop to the level that you are developed (emotionally, spiritually) on the inside. Developing self is the key to creating your own economy. It is the root to all successful businesses.
When it comes to Self Develop there isn’t one sure-fire recipe. I have learned from experience that everyone responds differently to the call of personal development. I am providing you with guideline and principles that have worked for me personally and for many of my clients.
I encourage you to use your creative self to take away what you most need and add what you feel is missing when you begin the journey to a deeper self.
Areas to consider when creating your foundation for your own economy.
- Acceptance: Accept reality and rid your life of denial
- Awareness: Develop awareness and deliberately co-create your life
- Love: Deepen your ability to connect with yourself and others
- Integrity: Discipline and consistency create strength
- Unity: Stop fighting against what is and come from mindset of oneness
- Courage: Meet fear with willingness to look directly into it
- Creativity: Live authentically, define your uniqueness and live out your brilliance
6 Main Areas of Your Life to Develop
- Habits: Examine your core beliefs. Beliefs create habits; habits create action.
- Money: Reveal your money story and release yourself from the negative energy of what was.
- Health: Create healthy habits that will empower your physical body. Healthy habits include mind, body & spirit.
- Relationships: Create loving relationships being with YOU. You can only give to others what resides within you.
- Spirituality: Deepen your connection to Spirit so you can live consciously.
- Intuition: Develop your own unique inner knowing and trust your own judgment.
Tip # 3 EVERYTHING begins and ends with you. You are ONE with the CREATOR and to love and honor yourself is the gift you give to the universe.
#4 Mindsets play strange tricks on us. We see things the way our minds have instructed our eyes to see.
The 4th component to creating your own successful economy is Mindset. Mindsets play a MAJOR role when building your economy. Think about the little engine that could! "I think I can I think I can!" and so, he did! The same is true for you.
The simplest way to create internal shift is to change the way you think, feel, interpret, react, cope, expect, process, interact and communicate. I can sum it up in 3 simple words:
EXPERIENCE NEW THINGS!
If it is your intention to be different you MUST DO DIFFERENT!
Our brains are amazing and the truth is science has only begun to truly understand the depth of its functionality. What is certain is that the brain relies on what it knows, what is worn into it. Expectations, emotions, attitudes and beliefs are all woven in from the moment we enter this world. Well intended families, and society “teach” us what to think and how to react and once these patterns are established it takes a lot of conscious thought and effort to create different, BUT IT IS POSSIBLE!!! The internal shift is simply created by replacing the old experience/thought with a new experience/thought.
Change comes from doing. We can’t simply ‘think’ ourselves different; we must ‘do’ ourselves different. We need to create inspired action behind our new thoughts. This is the only way to internal transformation.
Here is my personal story of a new inner mindset
I was raised to believe women didn’t need an education because their job was to find and marry a man who would take care of them. To shorten this story, I did just that. I also held onto the belief I wasn’t smart enough because I had no formal college education. When I reached my late 30’s I knew there had to be more than what I kept thinking about me; I was too stupid to achieve academic success and therefore I was destined to a less than fulfilling life.
I was a self-proclaimed dummy who one day decided to enroll in college, I do the work, I develop learned study-skills, I embrace the academic learning, I pass the exams and I achieve success! I AM CHANGED! My ability was always there but the confidence wasn’t. My self-limiting thinking and self-sabotaging behaviors are GONE– as I have created a new mindset by DOING! I stepped out of the box and took a chance!
Now…. I Am The Business Woman who set up her own business. I consciously create from a place of I CAN DO IT.. and, so, I DO! I actually do it. The first few years of owning my own business, I embraced the fact that growing would only come from stepping out of my box and creating new experiences. The experiences change me and now I life my life with a completely new mindset.
It’s time to get rid of the story. Rid yourself of the excuses. Use your past only as a guide to the future not as a baseball bat to beat yourself over the head. Forgive yourself. Be kind to yourself. Love your Humanity. Consciously plan your direction.
Tip #4 To be different you MUST DO DIFFERENT. You destination is anywhere you set your mind to!
