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.

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?

Wandering: Lost or Found?

September 05, 2019

As I wander, as you wander, Jewelry Fans, are you Lost or Found? Have you centered and grounded yourself in such a way that acceptance, competence, confidence and neutrality filter in and overtake the worrying ego in your minds with the simple ease of GRACE. In those moments are you Lost, your essence adrift without the anchor of place, or are you Found, so that no matter where you go, you are perfectly there? For a lot of you, for most folks, I think, it's easier to have the feeling of Grace when you are centered and grounded in your Place, your home, your town, your job, your family.

Special Keys and the Great Before

August 21, 2019

I learned that in my Grandma’s Before, a life where she didn’t have the white hair (which I now have), and gentle wrinkles around her eyes and mouth when she smiled (which I now have), she lived in New York City. She lived in flats that needed coal. She lived with her 5 brothers and sisters and her dad was a baker. They spoke Hungarian and cooked Hungarian. They had these big, special keys that opened their doors, their wardrobes, the boxes that stored their Silver and their Tea. Imagine a world where Tea was so special, you locked it up in box so no swiping hands made off with the best tea in the house for a secret cup of brew.
