Inspire | Encourage | Create

Creativity is the essence of our soul and human experience.  By giving ourselves permission to be creative, we open up the mind to its limitless possibilities.   It is my belief that we can learn from each other - and along the way, improve upon, and become better in our personal and professional endeavors.  

Having the courage to learn, to create, then share, then teach what we know breathes purpose and meaning into our lives.  It makes our world more vibrant.   Therefore, be an inspiration; encourage others to open the door to their imagination and pour their creativity into their life's work. 

My gratitude to the teachers (business and otherwise) I have had along the way.   - Valerie

To quote Maya Angelou:  "When we learn, teach ... when we get, give". 


"Cherish your vision and your dreams, as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.Ē  - Napoleon Hill

" If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader."  - John Quincy Adams  

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a manís character, give him power.  - Abraham Lincoln


Gentlemen, we are going to relentlessly chase perfection, knowing full well we will not catch it, because nothing is perfect.  But we are going to relentlessly chase it because in the process we will catch excellence.  I am not remotely interested in just being good.  - Vince Lombardi



"Nothing can dim the light which shines from within." - Maya Angelou


Plan your work for today and everyday, then work your plan. 

- Norman Vincent Peale -





"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world; there is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure about you. We were all meant to shine as children ... it is not just in some of us, it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same as we are liberated from our own fear. Our presence automatically liberates others."



- Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love -






I thank You God for most this amazing

day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees

and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything

which is natural which is infinite which is yes


(I who have died am alive again today,

and this is the sun's birthday; this is the birth

day of life and of love and wings: and of the gay

great happening illimitably earth)


how should tasting touching hearing seeing

breathing any - lifted from the no

of all nothing - human merely being

doubt unimaginable You?


(now the ears of my ears awake and

now the eyes of my eyes are opened)


- E. E. Cummings -





The kingdom of God is within you.

The Holy Bible - Luke 17:21 -
