Been listening to Ellen Britt's "Rapid Cash Flow Summit" today. Today was Sue Pointer, Adela Rubio, Maritza Parra and Nancy Marmolejo.
Great stuff! And it's free!
As I was reviewing my year, I thought through all the inspiring people I was able to meet and work alongside. It's been an incredible year on so many levels.
Have you ever set a big goal and when you achieved it there was sort of a let down afterward, like "That was it? I expected more." Or maybe it left you needing another "big thing" like a drug that never satisfies. That's the way I feel almost every time I reach a major goal. But the Light the World: Birthing Your Destiny Retreat was the total opposite. It was a rare time when the message and the music came together with the right presenters and the perfect participants to create a synergistic miracle. I'm still feeling the positive effects of that April 2010 event, and the people involved are my treasured friends. It's a gift that keeps on giving!
So I'd like to acknowledge those who helped make it happen --
along with energy healer Janice Erickson www.TotalPrevention.com and
Talk about the perfect team to work with! And then there are the wonderful participants who joined us:
Thank you all for being a part of my big dream!
I also had the privilege of sharing the stage with some top-notch women entrepreneurs at the Radiant Success Event in Raleigh, NC.
I thoroughly enjoyed meeting these ladies for the first time in person -- after working with many of them virtually for years! If I'm rich in anything, it's in good friends!
It's impossible to put into words the amazing time we had at the Light the World: Birthing Your Destiny Women's Retreat in Zion last week. It was perfect, amazing and miraculous! Definitely a God thing! One of my favorite parts of the event was the music! I've uploaded a few videos featuring the incomparable Sheldon Pickering and Jamie Bartschi. You may view them below:
Jamie sings "I Believe I Can Fly."
Jamie sings "Child of Light."
Sheldon & Jamie playing "If You're Happy and You Know It."
Sheldon Pickering & Jamie Bartschi play "Give Said the Little Stream."
Tuesday night, Judy Hansen and I talked about "Unearthing the Treasure in Your Own Backyard." If you missed that call, an audio is up of this powerful 30-minute presentation where I share how I literally transformed my backyard into treasure. :)
This call is an itty-bitty taste of what you can expect in Zion National Park, April 20-23rd. Those who attend will come away transformed, filled with vision, purpose and the courage to live in alignment with their God-given missions. How do I know that? Because it happens for me every time I go to Zion National Park with Judy Hansen and Lisa Rae Preston! These women are incredible! For years, I had a big dream that churned in my soul, but I never had the courage to really make it happen ... to step forward into the unknown ... until I spent a week with Judy Hansen in September 2009.
I came away with vision, faith, and enough fearlessness to do things I'd never done before. In December 2009, I took my good friend Lisa Rae Preston to stay a week with Judy, and the same thing happened for her! The three of us came away with a vision of a world dotted with righteous women, standing in God's power, in their own unique way, illuminating the path for others to follow, and inviting Christ to come light up this world!
We've seen it; we know it can happen! And we've seen that the women who come to this event in April are pioneers of what's to come. With all my heart, I want for you what happened for me! I want you to dust off that dream that God placed in your heart long ago. Bring it to Zion and let us help you midwife it into existence!
Please pray about whether YOU should be with us in April. There's still time to book flights. I got a really good deal straight from Chattanooga to St. George on Travelocity.com. There's still time to stay at Cliffrose. Or if you're interested, a couple of the girls attending are renting a house, and it can be more economical to stay there while they still have space.
This is your chance to enjoy four days in an intimate, inspirational setting with two of the finest musicians on the planet, myself, Judy Hansen, and Lisa Rae Preston. Together we're here to help 20-30 women birth their dreams.
If you'd like to be one of them and receive a full year of support thereafter, go to http://www.SpiritTreePublishing.com/event.htm today and reserve your spot!
I was out driving this gorgeous morning, and I started thinking about how amazing our upcoming event in April is going to be. Since the first time I heard Sheldon Pickering's music at a convention we both attended 6 years ago, I was hooked. He's been my favorite pianist ever since. I've written novels with his music as their soundtrack.
Yet it only struck me today (with all the hubbub of planning, preparing and promotion) that I get to spend 4 full days with my favorite pianist on the planet!
Not only that, but I'm spending it with my best friends in my favorite inspirational spot on Earth with the most incredible women coming to learn what we have to share. These women are ready to stop talking about "someday," stop making excuses, and start living their dreams!
I just love being with proactive women who want to make a positive impact in the world. So that's where I'll be come April 20th -- in my favorite spot with my favorite people doing what I enjoy most -- teaching others how to access God's help to live their God-given missions!
All of this has me incredibly excited, but I'm even more psyched about the impact these women are going to have on the world when they go forth from Zion National Park with their dreams birthed and well on their way! They're going to have the vision and the clarity to move forward fearlessly. They'll have the tools to help them through the rough spots along their journey, and the resources to make a positive impact that will ripple throughout their homes, families, friendships, communities and the world.
How excliting is that? Let's Light the World, ladies!
According to the Center for Women's Business Research, 10.1 million firms are owed by women, employing 13 million people as of 2008. Women-owned firms account for 40% of all privately held firms. Yet, historically men have dominated the live business event arena. Not anymore. Five leading women entrepreneurs are hosting the Radiant Success Event www.RadiantSuccessEvent.com, May 20-23, 2010 in Raleigh, NC. Presenters for this first-of-its-kind event include Janis Pettit, Denise Wakeman, Kathleen Gage, Ellen Britt and myself. We will be sharing advice, strategies, tactics, and the mindset that helped us get where they are today.
A few years ago an invitation-only group of highly successful women entrepreneurs joined together to form a mastermind group. The goal was to share insights and business building strategies and to support each other's business growth. As it turned out, the combined knowledge and reach of this small group was impressive and vast.
Janis Pettit, the coordinator of the event explains, "We noticed there were few opportunities for small and solo business owners and entrepreneurs to learn the combination of the best business building, income generating and online and offline marketing and mindset strategies from experts at a live event. And there were none presented by women.
We also knew the power of networking and interacting at a live event is more powerful than any other learning experience. Finally, it bothered us that so many business owners were stuck and needed real help ASAP! Since we shared a mission to help as many people succeed as possible, we decided to work together to create the Radiant Success Event."
Women entrepreneurs often have families and homes to care for in addition to their businesses. This results in a stressful juggling act with personal relationships, household responsibilities, and entrepreneurship. More than anyone, women entrepreneurs need a lifestyle business that produces revenue while they're handling life's priorities. Men will definitely benefit from the event, but we believe learning from our combined experience as women entrepreneurs will be a breath of fresh air for women seeking to build sustainable, lifestyle businesses.
Denise Wakeman of The Blog Squad adds, "The Radiant Success event promises to take you through the steps to plan, build and market your business. I'm excited about the speaker line up and the depth of content we'll be covering to support entrepreneurs at every stage of their business development. And nothing beats a live event for accelerating your progress through networking, conversations and opportunities to brainstorm your ideas."

Have you ever had that nagging feeling that you're on this planet for something more? Perhaps you've caught a glimpse of greatness in your future, a dream that stretched your imagination, but then you told yourself it wasn't practical, wasn't possible. You reasoned, "I'm nobody special. Other people have more talent, more expertise, are more qualified." Yet you can't escape the feeling… the subtle tugging at your heart that says you were born for more than this.
The truth is you were born for greatness! But it's so typical of women to be afraid to embrace our power, or to step into our own spiritual strength. That's why I'm excited about our April 2010 Light the World: Birthing Your Destiny Women's Retreat in Zion National Park. My friends Judy Hansen and Lisa Rae Preston and I are putting together a one-of-a-kind event for women in Zion National Park that promises to be pivotal for those who attend.
If you're ready to step into your spiritual strength and live the life you were born to live, this is the event for you. I know from experience, that when you live your core purpose all heaven and earth lines up to make it happen. Heaven's abundance is at your disposal. The question is, what is your purpose? Can you articulate it? Do you have the courage to live it? Do you have the faith to live without boundaries?
That's what the Light the World: Birthing Your Destiny Retreat is all about.
Maybe you were never taught that it's okay to be your powerful self. Maybe you never knew that other people are actually on this planet to compliment your destiny. But the truth is no one is best served by you playing small – not you, nor the people you love! Inside you is a magnificent beautiful soul – compassionate and capable. But it's so easy to put boundaries around that greatness.
The truth is there are no boundaries!
As a divine creation you are deeply loved and cared for. Resources to help you live your purpose are boundless. Come to Zion National Park, April 20-23 to uncover your brilliance with a group of women who are excited to celebrate you and to support the message you carry in your heart.

I'm totally psyched about our Light the Word: Birthing Your Destiny retreat coming up in April! This is just the beginning of bringing together a phenomenal group of talented women who are going to literally transform this planet! Just this week, I'm witnessing the miracles that happen when women put their talents, resources and gifts together! It’s incredible!
The old paradigm that said, "I've got to do everything myself" or "If she's that talented, why should I bother?" is out the window, my friends! The future is about working together synergistically and allowing miracles to happen. That's what this event is all about -- bringing talented women together and watching God work miracles through us!
