Hoots & Giggles

I don’t know about you, but this has been my most productive summer to date… even with a vacation holiday, beach time, and incredible meetups in the beautiful city where my upcoming book takes place – Vancouver (more about that soon).

Here’s what’s been happening…

Niki Owl Hatched a New Website!

When you’re in full creative flow, things happen at the speed of owls flying. And believe me, they fly fast.

While I finish up Book 1 of the Niki Owl series… he took time to create a whole new website to showcase himself more effectively. Because he’s that kind of artist…

Check it out:

Niki opted for simplicity this time, and we’ve taken off the handmade greeting cards & gifts section for the time being.

It’s a big risk shedding something that has existed for so long (even from an SEO perspective, but I know how to take care of that too), and one Niki and I willingly took for the greater vision so he can propel his writing career and inspire legions of (little and big) kids around the world.

You can read his story on how he came to life, access his online store much easier, and scoop up some owlish goodies while we prepare a whole new set of treats for you to indulge in.

Like him. Tweet him. Read him.

Thank you for your constant inspiration and support.

Love & Hoots,

(& Niki!)

Rule The World

Watching London’s closing ceremonies gave me time for some brief introspection of the last few weeks watching world class athletes perform. It has been so inspiring as I complete my forthcoming book, I want to be done with it already.

Of course, we still have a couple more weeks to look forward to with another awe-inspiring collective of athletes.

You may Believe that we are all part of one Love energy, one juicy awe inducing Consciousness, one massive community of Creators.

Or…

You may Believe that we are the product of genetic evolution from particles that came together over time and space.

However you choose to look at Life, there is no denying that as human beings we are each a part of the whole magic of Life.

And how we choose to perform in our lives is what makes us excel in our own ways.

As the world watched these remarkable human beings for two weeks, we can see once again how to take an individual goal, surpass all known limitations and come together as one global community raising itself to a whole new level of Belief in self.

Where our differences are motivators for personal excellence.

Where camaraderie unites us in awe of one another.

Humans being self-fulfilled individuals within the whole of humanity.

So instead of putting each other down out of jealousy, fear or skepticism, we actively support each other in being our best.

And when there’s something in life that you want, achieving it comes down to a very simple thought – if there’s nobody apparently better than you out there, then go for it, Phelps style. Break through your previous limitations with eyes wide open, like those of a child looking at something for the very first time.

If you encounter criticism from others, remind yourself that it’s their choice how they focus their energy.

If others choose to focus on pulling you down, continue to focus on building yourself up. Simply carry on doing what you can for you, since their path is theirs for the making.

Your excellence acts a beacon to show others how they can excel for themselves.

Somebody else will take inspiration from you and propel themselves to greater heights.

And if there is somebody better than you at something, applaud them as you take inspiration from their feats.

Our achievements come down to Attitude, Belief, and Commitment to giving it our all.

This is what makes us humane champions of life.

This is how we rule the world.

Take that,

Convergence & Integrated Optimization

What does convergence mean to you?

For me, it’s that beautifully delicate point where you step out of the old picture and into the full association of what you aspire to in life: in business, relationships and anything else that you can conceive.

The journey within the journey between where you are now and where you’d like to be.

Some people call this:

The Meeting Point.

No Man’s Land.

The Bridge.

Transfiguration.

Convergence…

How does this affect us?

The Business Perspective: Are your current marketing strategies providing this transformation for your business life to reach a new level?

The Personal Perspective: Are you translating these into your personal life so that you’re covering your bases in full support of all your goals?

Reality Check: Is there something you need to release (thought forms, strategies, resources, fears, anxiety, limiting decisions…), that you know by releasing this now, you will be able to move forward faster and with more precision?

Well, the good news is, we can work through it together.

Step by step, leading your way to…

Integrated Optimization

optimize |ˈäptəˌmīz|
verb [ with obj. ]
make the best or most effective use of (a situation, opportunity, or resource)

I take a holistic approach towards growing your business in the online world through creative strategies… and personal coaching.

When discussing development of their projects, clients ask me what I would do if it were my business. It’s a common question, one that goes beyond marketing strategies and business decision-making. It comes from a deeper place of, “How will this affect my life, and the lives of those around me?

Since we know the answer is in you anyway (right?), it’s just a matter of clearing through any fog or uncertainty, so you can gain clarity and confidence.Sometimes, we need to gain that clarity before we can do any real tangible ‘work’. And sometimes we can run them parallel. It comes down to what you’re willing to do, and how you view things.

So here it is, integrated optimizations.

Consultancy for your business life.
Coaching for your personal life.

Because they both come down to one common denominator – You.

And what comes to you, starts within you… on all levels.

So how about being fully integrated now?

Optimize You, Optimize Your Business™

Bam.

Let’s rock this party.

And welcome to wherever you are now,

On The Shared Values of Athletes & Entrepreneurs

As an entrepreneurial being who is constantly expanding my own brand of world domination, and those of my clients, I’ve been watching some of the Games to keep applying my muscle of belief.

So, while hundreds of athletes continue to inspire us in London this summer, it occurred to me that there are many parallels between:

– how athletes show up in life
– how entrepreneurs show up in their businesses (including on search engines/social media)
– and most importantly, how we create astounding results for ourselves.

Here are some shared values:

Dedication
Motivation
Strategy
Vision
Strength
Adaptability
Passion
Seeing it through

I’d love to know what others you can think of…

How are you applying yourself to your success?

Go for Gold…
