SpotlighT Make the Right Move!

Elaina is now on pace to have her best year, yet selling multiple homes per month. If you find yourself in the market to buy or sell a home, look no further than Elaina Musleh. Her professionalism and determination most certainly make her the best choice to assist you in making the right move. “I am a Realtor, and a match maker. I introduce people to homes until they fall in love, then I help them tie the knot.” –Elaina Musleh

Elaina Musleh is a native Hoosier who grew up in Carmel, Indiana and attended Carmel High School. Throughout her childhood she played competitive soccer for multiple clubs, regional teams, and the US Youth National Team before playing division 1 soccer for both the University of Kentucky and Ball State University. After receiving her bachelor’s degree in Business, she decided to take her competitive nature from the soccer field to the sales field becoming a licensed real estate agent with the F.C. Tucker Company. She not only found herself opening up the front door to many homes but also the door to her dream career. Elaina began her real estate career under the guidance or her Aunt, Bif Ward. There she learned the ins and outs of the business before branching out on her own. As an F.C. Tucker professional, Elaina has produced results through her timeless hard work, expanding market knowledge, and exceptional client service.

"If you're ever looking for a real estate agent I highly recommend Elaina Musleh. As first-time home buyers Elaina walked us through the home-buying process, listened to what we were looking for in a home - showing us ones of Interest and not wasting our time with ones we would never be interested in. Elaina is knowledgeable, experienced and knows the Hamilton County area extremely well. So if you are looking to buy, or sell, we highly recommend you give Elaina Musleh a call and let her help you find your dream home - we certainly did!" –Katie Snyder "This was my first time buying a home, which alone can be scary. Elaina made this entire process a breeze. If I had questions or concerns she was always there to answer them and is always on top of things. If you’re looking for someone who honestly loves her job and respects her clients, I highly recommend her!" –Joslin Bronnenberg

The 3 Steps to Actualizing Your Potential Life coaching assists clients in taking their lives to the next level. I help clients set goals that they have wanted to address but have not put into place because they seem unachievable or Carol Juergensen Sheets daunting. Together we set up strategies as we work towards the achievement of their dreams. Many times, we have to start the work by changing the client’s self-perception of herself so that she can use her personality strengths to accomplish her goals. We must address the internal work so that we can accomplish the external work. This requires that I work with my clients to change how they see themselves or how they envision the world. Often, they will have certain beliefs about themselves that hold them back from seeing their own potential. They will want to accomplish a goal but secretly they will negate their efforts or abilities. Again, this requires a major shift in what they believe about themselves and the world around them. So, when you think about changing your life and taking it to the next level, is your head in the right place to KNOW your strengths and BELIEVE that life is going to support you? Are you willing to do the work and create the steps to make your life happen?

How Do You View Yourself? As you are reading this, do you have something that you would like to change or accomplish? What are your strengths that could contribute to achieving your goals? Could you write down your strengths in the form of an affirmation? It might look like: I am an intuitive and resourceful person who will find the time to finish writing my book! Or, my compassion and love of animals will be the

motivators for returning to veterinary school and becoming a vet!

How Do You View the World? Can you hold the belief that your higher power, God, or the universe will support you? In other words, do you have an inner knowing that the world wants great things for you and that life is going to support you in your endeavors?

Are You Willing to Do What It Takes? Stretching out of your comfort zone and trying something new requires diligence and discipline. Are you willing to carve out 2 extra hours a day to attend to your strategies and action plan to complete your goal? Are you ready to ask people to assist you in your dreams? Are you committed to making the sacrifices in your life to get to the next level? If you have difficulty with any of the steps above, you might want to consider applying some of the techniques to strengthening your belief system about yourself, your life and your world. Write out 50 personality strengths that you possess and post them obvious places like your medicine cabinet, your computer screen, your car visor on the refrigerator. Look at yourself in the mirror and remind yourself that you are amazing, gorgeous, brilliant etc. Repeat several times a day that life loves you, or life has your back or that God is preparing the journey just for you. And lastly, decide what structural changes that you will need to make to start this process of actualizing your goals. Begin to get up earlier, or mentor with someone who does what you want to do. Ask people for support! When you begin to work it, it creates momentum and it starts the process to create the life you deserve!

Say What?


Can your child hear?

It’s not a question most of us ponder, until the third time we ask them to pick up their toys! But in May, which is “Better Hearing and Speech Month”, it is a good time to think about it.


irst of all, if your child was born in Indiana, it’s very likely that they have already had their first hearing test. The Early Hearing Detection and Intervention program (EHDI for short) manages Newborn Hearing Screening in hospitals across the state, and screens 98% of Hoosier babies in the hospital shortly after birth. It happens right along with the “heel stick” test, and is managed through the Health Department. Many people are not aware that a difference in hearing is the most common concern at birth, and much more likely than many of the other issues addressed in screening. As a parent, you would have received a simple report: your child “passed” or is “referred” which means more testing is needed.

ontrary to popular belief, most people with hearing loss can still “hear”. Typically hearing losses affect higher pitched sounds, and often the loss only impacts softer tones. But if you can’t hear the speech sound “s” unless it is right next to your ear, it might not just mean that you grow up with a “lisp” – it could mean that you have trouble understanding the grammar of plurals (“kite” vs “kites”) and possessives (“Rick” vs “Rick’s”). Many people are “deaf” in just one ear, which can be a problem listening in noisy places (like classrooms) and can lead to academic problems. And finally, many hearing losses are “progressive” and get worse over time. As many as 50% of children who have hearing losses by Kindergarten had normal hearing at birth.


o what to do? First, if your baby was referred for further hearing testing, be sure to follow through! But later on, watch for these warning signs, and talk to your doctor if your child:

• babbles with only a few sounds • is slow to develop spoken words • doesn’t respond to you, especially in a noisy environment • often or repeatedly says “what?” or “huh?” when you give a direction • has trouble figuring out who is talking around the dinner table • has persistent speech errors past 4 years of age • has frequent middle ear infections • turns up the TV


very parent knows how crazy those first few weeks are with a newborn. You come home with so much paperwork – not to mention all the other hospital paraphernalia! While you are sleep deprived and worried about feeding and diapers, the hearing screening follow-up is easy to overlook. Amid the insurance and hospital billing, subsequent notices can go in the “circular file” without a second thought. Even if you see them, if your baby wakes to a screaming older sibling or the barking dog, you know they can hear, right?

njoy all the wonderful sounds ofAfter May in Indiana – from the birds singing to the 500 Race! And be sure your child can, too!

May 2018 April 25 – May 13 Wicked at Old National Centre. Back

by “Popular” demand. Variety calls Wicked "a cultural phenomenon,” and it continues to break box office records and sell out in record time. Winner of over 100 international awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards, Wicked is “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times). Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One—born with emerald green skin—is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for "the most complete—and completely satisfying—new musical in a long time" (USA Today).
