Fuel Your Dreams...

Howdy Jewelry Fans! I wanted to take a few minutes and talk about reaching for your goals. I'm working on upping my business game and reaching my true potential to connect with you all and serve your needs for meaningful, authentic adornment. I travel all around this great country meeting you where you are and want you to be able to find me, online, in full view, ready to continually connect. 

I’m taking small steps every day. Planning my work and working my plan. I am serving my customers as I served my country. I am relentless. I am unfettered. I am a woman on fire.

In business school (Simmons College (now university) at the time the only women’s only mba program in the country and a great balance to my male dominated USNA degree) we talked about the incremental accrual of disadvantage- the impact of gender on the trajectory of a career. How small, built in misogynistic perceptions can have a drastic impact on a woman’s life long work.

In the Navy I learned that a small course diversion has drastic impacts on the final destination. We performed “dead reckoning” every couple of hours to see how far off course we were. Ships naturally go off course. Unexpected currents, wind, steering gear discrepancies could have major impacts on getting where we were going. Humans naturally go off course.

I use this community, you, my Jewelry Fans, my business coaches,  as my “dead reckoning” tool, or “DRT”, accepting the constant course corrections and reminders. This community not only keeps me moving in the right direction, it is actually increasing my trajectory, transforming my journey from two dimensions to three dimensions.

In this community, I’m finding the opposite of disadvantage. I’ve found the incremental accrual of advantage. The incremental increase of impact, fulfillment and satisfaction. Small trajectory increases that have me shooting for the stars. Because if we set our course, our goals and never check in on where we are in the planned movement, we are really just adrift at sea going in some kind of direction but with no real data on where we actually are.

Oh yes, we can. Oh yes, I can. I’m earning it every day. My work. My vision. My soul. My business. My customers. My heart. 

Fuel your dreams, Jewelry Fans. Small steps for big gains in the long haul.

Join OSJ and Take the Plastic Pledge

September 26, 2019

Howdy Jewelry Fans! The season has changed and many of us are tucking away our sunscreen for next year (although those of us in the South and Southwest have a bit more sun time on the clock). Does the beach linger in your mind as we slide into the reaping season? The endless churning of potential and actual, the edge of static and emotive, I’ve always loved to walk along the shore, finding life a balance of the future on the horizon and the amazing, beautiful mess of chaos at my feet all along the shore. I’m often stuffing my pockets with objects, transformed in the depths of the ocean and the edge of civilization.  They’re secret treasures, their transformation to something else a reality of my journey through life.

I love the Ocean. The Lakes. The Rivers. The tiny bubbling Streams crossing properties and terra all around this great planet of ours. During my Navy days, haze gray and underway was always a soothing constant of change and routine, mission and sacrifice. I’m lucky to have seen dolphins playing in the bow wake of sailboat, cruiser, frigate and amphib. I’ve been in the middle of the Oceans of Earth where nary a light could be found, where humans mattered not to the towering 40ft waves of a northern Atlantic Storm. In these ways, I learned that we, humans, matter little to the churning waters of our planet.

Let's get Nerdy for a bit, shall we? As I've been working with more Gold, I find myself talking about the karat, purity, strength, color and attributes of the different types of Gold in Original Sin Jewelry's Collections at shows. Since my website is a 24 hours a day, 365 (and 1/4) days a year show, it makes sense to talk about it here too. Right?
