I am the one that makes the bread, weaves the fabric, creates the peace, negotiates the smiles, shuts it down and wakes it all back up. I am the Swiss Army Knife of mankind.

From the Editor and Chief Creative Officer

Welcome to this issue of E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive. This month’s theme is: “Give Yourself Away. Living Life Out Loud and on Purpose” This month’s issue will feature Dr. Anissa Mc Neil and Sir Nicholas Winston. These are just two examples of people can make a difference in the lives of others half way around the world. Before we get into this issue, let me take a minute to share the concept of “It Does Not Yet Appear”. This is the concept of standing in expectation of things hoped for-with no evidence of it yet being seen. The mark of a true visionary is speaking things into existence. When everyone says not ever, you say not yet. When everyone says it can’t be done, you say of course it can. And when everyone says give up, you say I haven’t even started yet. It’s not enough to have a big vision, your mind has to be elevated and your tolerance level expanded to be able to birth it. When the song says “People Make the World Go Round”, here are a few tips: *You have to tolerate the imperfections in other people • Allow for their growth curves and personal struggles. • Keep good people and build upon it. Finally, injured people often exclude themselves. They quite before you fire them, they thrieve on expecting rejection. Taking all that into consideration, many great people need encouragement to keep doing well. So when you look at someone or something that appears to be broken, worthless and discarded, remember this. It does not yet appear what someone could turn into in the hands of a builder and a Visionary. Is that person You? I hope you enjoy this issue. -Althea Ledford Subscription link

At an event last night two like-minded retired senior Navy Officers - one in his late 70's and another in his 50's could not stop speaking when they found out about my upcoming leadership book, The En-

chanted Boardroom: Evolve Into An Unstoppable Intuitive Leader, (Sept. 13th). It was as if a door was unlocked and they could speak freely without being judged.

You see, in the book, I dispel the mystery of merging the practical, tactical and logical with the intuitive, emotional, spiritual and physical sides of ourselves to provide whole leadership. It's about listening to those images, those disembodied words one hears, and those goosebumps and innate knowing and recognizing that they are powerful messages. Instead of running away you run towards them, incorporate and work with the messages that come because they give you needed insights to complement the facts. Both sides are critical to solid decision making. Leaders throughout history refer to working with intuition to lead wholly and completely. Yes, it's time to get this message out and liberate those amazing leaders who already use these tools, and are too scared to admit it, because of the fear of being judged and labeled "not all there. " In fact, they are the ones who are all there ....

so exciting!

Breaking Writer’s Block Writing about a writer’s block is better than not writing at all.” –Charles Bukowski, Novelist

writer’s block is defined as a “condition,” primarily associated with an author who loses the ability to produce new work, or experiences a creative slowdown.

Every month, I contact my editor and ask what topic she wants me to write about, what’s trending this month and the focus or theme of that month’s issue. For this month, she immediately requested I write about “writer’s block.” As I began to research, I came across numerous articles and books with 10, 15, 27 or as many as 90 tips to address, manage and cure writer’s block. First, I asked myself if writer’s block really exists or has it just been an age-old crutch and excuse for not writing. If it does exist, how is it defined and what causes it? As I conducted my research, I discovered I not only have to define writer’s block but also grasp its basic understanding. According to Page 30 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

my research, writer’s block is defined as a “condition,” primarily associated with an author who loses the ability to produce new work, or experiences a creative slowdown. The documentation states the “condition” ranges in difficulty from coming up with original ideas to not producing any written material for years. Evidently, throughout history, “writer's block” has been a documented problem. Some of the professionals who have struggled with this “affliction” include authors such as F. Scott Fitzgerald, comic strip cartoonist Charles M. Schulz, British songwriter Adele and even Herman Melville, who quit writing novels for a number of years after writing Moby-Dick. Subscription link

It has been suggested that writer's block is more than just a mentality. Research suggests that under stress, a human brain will "shift control from the cerebral cortex to the limbic system."

Psychoanalyst Edmund Bergler first described the “condition� in 1947, even though the majority of the research on this topic was conducted more than thirty years later, during the late 1970s and 1980s.

The third category of blocks may have to do with the pressure to produce the material, especially if the author is compelled to work in ways that are against their natural inclination (i.e. with a deadline).

The research suggests that writer's block may be attributed to different causes, falling under different categories. The first category may be creative problems that originate within an author's work itself, as a writer may run out of inspiration, or be distracted by other events.

It has been suggested that writer's block is more than just a mentality. Research suggests that under stress, a human brain will "shift control from the cerebral cortex to the limbic system." What does this mean?

The second category of blocks may be produced by adverse circumstances in the writer's life such as physical illness, depression, end of a relationship, financial pressures, or even a sense of failure. Page 31 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

The limbic system is associated with the instinctual processes, such as the "fight or flight" response and behavior that is based on "deeply engrained training." Since limited input from the cerebral cortex hinders a person's Subscription link

creative process, which is then replaced by behaviors associated with the limbic system, the individual is often unaware of the change, which may lead them to believe they are creatively "blocked." In her 2004 book, The Midnight Disease: The Drive to Write, Writer's Block, and the Creative Brain, Alice W. Flaherty, author and neurologist, has argued that literary creativity is a function of specific areas of the brain, and that a block may be the result of brain activity being disrupted in those specific areas. Another occurrence of writer’s block, known as blank page syndrome, is considered similar Page 32 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

to writer's block. However, it is not recognized as a psychological term. Blank page syndrome can happen to a writer at any time, irrespective of their circumstances or any of the other factors previously identified as attributing to writer’s block. This syndrome can be annoying to authors and often leads to a long span of time where they cannot create anything new to write about. In a Psychology Today article posted on September 14, 2012, Susan K. Perry, Ph.D., an author, novelist, and social psychologist in her article, 10 Creative Block Breakers That Actually Work, You CAN Overcome the Frustration of Feeling Blocked, Subscription link

Doesn't matter what you call it: writer's block or creative block or simply "Where is my inspiration when I need it?!" “

sees “writer’s block” as a matter of flow. “Doesn't matter what you call it: writer's block or creative block or simply "Where is my inspiration when I need it?!" All creative individuals find their work coming less easily at some times than others.” What if “writer’s block” isn’t “writer’s block at all? What if it had more to do with procrastination or perfectionism? According to Nigel Barber Ph.D. in his article; Finally a Cure for Writer's Block! How to Overcome Procrastination and Perfectionism in Psychology Today, April 08, 2013, Page 33 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

“the heart of the problem in writer’s block is essentially a problem of procrastination, of putting off until tomorrow what might be done today. Most writers do not have rigid external deadlines to inspire them, such as a contract or a due date for an article, such as this. The procrastinator feels that the time is not yet ready and the writing project is likely to go much better at a future time. The problem, of course is that those perfect conditions for getting started are elusive. Perfect conditions are not worth waiting for because they do not exist. Subscription link

In many cases, a writer does not know what the first sentence of a novel, article or book is going to be. An author can type something like what they think the first sentence might be and then imagine what might come next.” According to Barber, apart from breaking through the writer’s block by jumping in with an approximation of what the first or second sentence is, has other advantages. One advantage is not knowing what is waiting in the imagination until you look inside. Another reason a writer procrastinates is that writing for an audience is a performance with some similarities to playing an instrument. It is true everyone does their share of talking but speech is essentially a different instrument and discussing your novel, book or article with another will not help you write it. For example, a musician cannot be very good on an instrument without plenty of practice and the same is true of a writer. A cure for writer’s block can also be the solution for procrastination – and even perfectionism. There is no good reason for postponing the start of your writing. There is every reason to begin immediately. “Just sit down and write!” While I was writing this article, I called my Page 34 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

editor-in-chief to discuss future issues and as we spoke, I shared with her that I was struggling to finish this article and I thought I had “writer’s block.” .” She simply laughed. She was quite surprised, as this had never happened to me before. Usually, I do my research and just begin writing. In this case, I struggled because of the power of suggestion in the attempt to empathize with other writers who experience “writer’s block.” I would like to point out there are two distinctions relating to “writer’s block.” The author of The War of Art, Steven Subscription link

age is not what is in the until you side.

Pressfield, explains there is a force warring against your creativity. It is called “Resistance” and it wants to keep you from your destiny. According to Anne Lamott, what we call “writer’s block” may be something dramatically different. She explains we may really be feeling uninspired but may in fact be spiritually and emotionally empty.

Depending on the circumstances, there may be two reasons for your lack of inspiration: One may be a real case of the resistance — your laziness, outside distractions, or some other negative force keeps you from making a difference. If that’s the case, then you only have one choice: show up and do the work. However, if you’re feeling empty, be careful. You could waste hours sitting in front of a computer screen. If this is the case, you may need to step away and do something that’s fulfilling — play with your kids, listen to music, go for a run. Don’t be fooled; resistance is waiting to grab you at the earliest possible moment. Once you’re full, get back at it. Start creating and continue working through the resistance. There is one simple solution for overcoming writer’s block. It’s the one thing you don’t want to do and think you can’t do:

If that were the case, the last course of action you want to pursue is pushing through the block. Because in reality, you Page 35 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

Write anything. No rules or limitations. Just go for it. All bets are off.


Write anything. No rules or limitations. Just go for it. All bets are off. Let your beginning sentence be something like this: Asdf, jkl; zxcv, bnm, qwerty, uiop Even though they are not real words, it doesn’t matter because once you start moving your fingers, you will find the right direction to pursue. The hard part is just getting started, not cleaning up the confusion. You can always go back and edit the confusion by refining the mismatched combination of words. After a few minutes of nonsensical typing, you will find that you are no longer writing junk. After a short period you are writing real, comprehensible words and phrases, even actual sentences. Page 36 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

Be aware this can all begin with a few silly strokes of the keyboard. You are not blocked because you don’t have any ideas. I assert you are blocked because you’re a perfectionist. You think that none of the ideas seem good enough; nothing feels quite brilliant enough to become reality. So, you sit there, stuck at your desk, waiting for something better to come to mind. What if something better never comes to mind? What if your next idea was the best idea you will ever have? You would have to capture it… right? Exactly. No one is asking you to paint the Mona Lisa. The key is for you to just write a first draft, good, bad, indifferent; it doesn’t matter even if that first draft totally sucks. You can build on it later. Subscription link

Embrace the freedom you feel when you type the nonsense. There is a sense of lightness that can liberate you from the oppression of your own perfectionism. I dare you to write something terrible. Allow it to be so bad that the only thing you can do is to make it better. What are you waiting for? Now is the best opportunity to write and be creative. Are You Interested In Writing A Book?

In recent years market issues required the US government's overseeing authority to help correct. Risk were calculated and managed within the maze of corporate protections for exact same executives responsible for the crash. Golden Parachutes were paid out to executives forced out due to unfavorable businesses practices. Newly appointed/ intermediate C level executives gave themselves bonuses/ raises with the bailout funds. A small reminder, these funds were directly extracted out of the national budget not once but three times. The first two bailout events were highly opposed by the general population due to the mismanagement of funds. Hundreds of billions of dollars dispersed among companies who no longer exist or remain in the red have yet to be recovered. General Motors represents the fear associated with the longterm effects of bailout practices. We the people, rather the executive branch, still hold a third of GM's stock worth about $10 billion dollars. This arrangement is supposed to replenishment the borrowed funds but instead ties citizens to a sizable nationally shared debt. Restructuring, macro managing, and investing into these troubled companies has essentially Page 42 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

This formula will lead to the demise of the banking system as we know it. Actually the system will not change the players will in a community growing beyond the confines of bank walls and old world rules. Questionably the rates, fees, and service charges have increased with the advent of new technology. The exact opposite of the conditions promised occurred forcing people to take a deeper look into their personal and national finances. As the banks continued to cut spending, the trust in an adviser became the work of websites and cable news commentators. The clients begin giving feedback requesting even more ways to manage themselves financially reducing the value of brick n' molder banking. Customers value the convenience of new tools while banks are using this movement to further cut spending reducing the need for human service. Clients allowed to manage their financial foot print, via the internet, are less likely to solely use a large servicing institution.

In recent years there has been an explosion of small check cashing locations, debt card issuers, and digital transfer services without the multitude of fees/ taxes. Newer banking techniques cater to the technologically savvy customer who is not warped by the nostalgia of the “old way�.

banking system funds and transaction behavior is easily tracked. The fear of being burned by a small fly-by night company due to poor product quality or uninsured high risk transactions is archaic. In this future smaller is bigger the product of a downsizing culture feeding on itself. Mega companies have monopolized the market by absorbing smaller companies and creating political roadblocks for new companies. As their size increases the ability to change creates risk variation data that now has to be managed to service a diverse multitude. Maintaining the brand hardens the surface of these mega companies while extended growth inhibits flexibility. Now instead of being to big to fail these companies have become to big to pass. Financial oceans are filtering into the mainland carving deltas, grooves, and streams throughout a new landscape. Outside of a water park whales do not travel through mainland waterways due to their large size. Passing through the confines of an evolving future means choosing at the fork in the road rather than cursing an open ocean. Emerging environments spawn diverse ecosystems populated by the products of evolution. Nutrients fuel the new ecosystem's desire for balance and flexibility, insuring survival. Money is bigger than banking. Transferring value from one entity to another is quantum throughout the existence. Banking with mega companies does not change the basic principles of business and wealth management. Subscription link

Eliminating the middle man, servicing company, reduces the cost for all parties involved. In the past the security risk of a unknown company trumped any possible benefit offered. A completely transparent system can only exist in a digital world. Auditing a small company or reasonably sized corporation takes significantly less resources. When huge corporations are questioned the volume of legal sludge circumvents the actual process of fixing the problem. During the pop of the housing market bubble mega banks stretched out lengthy court proceedings essentially staving out any opposition. Average citizens do not have the money to keep a lawyer on retainer throughout a leniently court proceeding. Large institutions challenge the opposition to a war of attrition consequently costing of thousands of dollars just to keep up with court dates. Right and wrong rarely factor into resolving consumer issues. Most cases are either open, unresolved or dropped using legal loop holes to protect the politically backed mega companies. It is not uncommon for mega banks have a long list of unresolved legal complaints but remain unmarred by a record of flawed service. These protections deteriorate the concept of a level playing field fortifying the walls Page 46 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

As the cell walls of a financial being hardens the exchanges needed to sustain life become increasingly difficult. Requiring the organism to use more fuel to acquire fuel in an attempt to increase efficiency. The proverbial snake feast on its own tail resulting in the death of the creature.

light red is the ill advised work of political favor. Although most people do not advocate protecting the profit margins of mega corporations the “powers that be” fully support their political backers. Within the political donation system monies are bounced between hidden figures to cloak motives by using an archaic transfer system. Gaps in transparency allows the rich and powerful to virtually operate outside of standard banking practices without consequence.

For example the companies take zero responsibility for a clients failed mortgage because of a general “buyer-be-were” policy used as scripture.

If grandpa dies the bank or lending or financial service will call to check on the possibility of continuing the professional relationship which is actually a new agreement. Clients fall into this cycle were they will allow someone to take advantage of the situation for the notion of familiarity, safety. Market goers refer to this trait as product familiarity which is just another result of “cooperate brain washing” or rather the over saturation of product advertisement.

So many children do have the opportunity or are denied the right of an education.

Many nights when I was homeless, before I laid down to sleep. I covered myself with leaves or buried myself a bit in the dirt to try to keep warm. I would look up into the stars and the heavens and asked GOD, do you see me? I know the loneliness and despair children feel. I too felt invisible from the adults, community, and city in which I lived. I also know the strength it takes to cling to hope and the courage it takes to find and experience joy in the midst of poverty and homelessness. A simply joy of play is a struggle as a homeless child. Many other worries consume your food and shelter. You wonder and dream, how and when will this change?

I know the power of education especially a quality education and its ability to change and build lives for generations to come. Education has allowed me to change all aspects of my life. Education is powerful. Children, yes all children deserve a quality education . Knowing this fueled my passion to educate. Educate foster youth, poor children, all children in need. For years, I struggled with how to get involved? How do I do this? Especially coming from where I am from?

Choosing to Get Involved

Little did I know, that my background and experiences served as the first qualifier, being educated the second, and having a passion to educate others is the third to get this work done! I choose to live my Life “Out loud and On Purpose”. It’s my personal mantra. With that spirit, I began Education Works Consulting Firm, Inc- Orphan Education Program and began to educate children worldwide.

I had the opportunity to explore the education system and identify a need experientially. One day while driving to visit a public school. We drove by three young ladies carrying wood up and down the highest mountain in Addis Ababa. I immediately asked to stop and asked to talk with the young women. Initially, they were admit about not talking, held there head downs, and went to drop the wood behind trees. As we began to stop and they became more at ease and began to share their stories. One young girls stated “I went to school but there aren’t any jobs” and “ you must do good on the exams to get a job”. Another shared “I couldn’t go to school. My mother works and so do I”. Two of the three girls could not read a simple sentence… Page 56 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

The sentiment and despair was shared from girls and boys alike. It’s easy to see why, we began to work in Ethiopia! The work is challenging and rewarding. While working in Uganda, I had the privilege to meet an young man, we will call him Nick, while observing a math class. Nick immediately raised his hand when asked to solve a math question. After, two or three questions, he stopped raising his hand and lowered his head. I saw this and asked him immediately after class why did he stop to answer questions? Subscription link

I wanted Nick to know that we have so many dimensions and talents as humans as it’s okay to enjoy all of who you are. I spent the next few days encouraging Nick to be exactly who he is made to be and that is a wonderful, curious, and brilliant young man. By the end of the week, I went back to his math class and observed him answering questions and being asked by the teacher to help others who were struggling to solve the math problem.

Sir Nicholas Winston Your Executive Skills CAN Change the World

Winton singlehandedly established an organization to aid children from Jewish families at risk from the Nazis. Born in 1909 to German Jewish parents, Winston, initially named Wertheim, was born. A normal Jewish childhood with the exception of the family converting to Christianity at the time they migrated to London. In 1923, Winton entered Stowe School, which had just opened. He left without graduating, attending night school while volunteering at the Midland Bank. He then went to Hamburg, where he worked at Behrens Bank, followed by Wasserman Bank in Berlin. In 1931, he moved to France and worked for the Banque Nationale de Crédit in Paris. He also earned a banking qualification in France. Returning to London, he became a broker Shortly before Christmas 1938, at the London Stock Exchange. Page 62 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

Winton was planning to travel to Switzerland for a skiing holiday. He decided instead to visit Prague and help his friend Martin Blake, who had called to ask him to assist in Jewish welfare work. Winton single- handedly established an organization to aid children from Jewish families at risk from the Nazis. He set up his office at a dining room table in his hotel in Wenceslas Square. In November 1938, following the Kristallnacht in Nazi-ruled Germany, the House of Commons approved a measure to allow the entry into Britain of refugees younger than 17, provided they had a place to stay and a warranty of £50 was deposited for their eventual return to their own country. Subscription link

An important obstacle was getting official permission to cross into the Netherlands, as the children were destined to embark on the ferry at the Hook of Holland. After the Kristallnacht in November 1938, the Dutch government officially closed its borders to any Jewish refugees. The border guards (marechaussee) actively searched for them and returned any found to Germany, despite the horrors of Kristallnacht being well known. (From the border, the synagogue in Aachen could be seen burning just 3 miles away). Winton succeeded, thanks to the guarantees he had obtained from Britain. After the first train, crossing the Netherlands went smoothly. A Dutch woman, Gertruida Wijsmuller-Meier saved another 10,000 Jewish children, mostly from Vienna and Berlin via the Hook, though it is not known whether she and Winton ever met. Page 63 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

(In 2012, a statue was erected on the quay at the Hook to commemorate all who had saved Jewish children.) Winton found homes in Britain for 669 children, many of whose parents would perish in Auschwitz. Winton's mother worked with him to place the children in homes and later hostels. Throughout the summer, Winton placed advertisements seeking families to accept them. The last group of 250, scheduled to leave Prague on 1 September 1939, did not reach safety. Hitler had invaded Poland and World War II had begun. Subscription link

Winton sought registration as a conscientious objector and served during the war with the Red Cross, but in 1940 he rescinded his objection to join the Royal Air Force, Administrative and Special Duties Branch. He was initially an airman, rising to sergeant by the time he was commissioned on June 22, 1944 as an acting pilot officer on probation. He was later promoted to pilot officer on probation and then war substantive flying officer. He relinquished his commission on 19 May 1954, retaining the honorary rank of flight lieutenant.

It contained lists of the children, including their parents' names, and the names and addresses of the families that took them in. By sending letters to these addresses, 80 of "Winton's children" were found in Britain. The world found out about his work in 1988 during an episode of the BBC television program That's Life! when he was invited as a member of the audience. At one point Winton's scrapbook was shown, and his achievements explained. The host of the program, Esther Rantzen, asked whether any in the audience owed their lives to Winton, and, if so, to stand – more than two dozen people surrounding Winton rose and applauded.

Time may seem like it’s infinite; but for all of us, it is a finite commodity. The reason I say time is a commodity is because it is an intangible product but just as valuable as something tangible of great value. As Benjamin Franklin once quoted, “Time is money.” We’ll explore why different aspects of your life related to this quote, and how learning to use both your time and money more wisely can lead you on a path to financial freedom. Time Value of Money Many of you, just like me, probably wished you had saved more money than you currently have in your savings account. The definition of Time Value of Money is the idea that money available at any present time is worth more than the same amount in the future given that it can earn interest. If you think back on it, you may realize you could have saved more over the years. The reason you didn’t is probably because a great deal of disposable income you had throughout your lifetime have been spent on things you really didn’t need,

but just HAD to have. I’m certainly guilty of that. I’m not just talking about the designer clothes and shoes, but also small items you thought were negligible such as your daily dose of coffee, latte or your favorite drink. Such inexpensive items at any present moment can significantly reduce your nest egg once these expenditures continue over a long period of time. For example, most of us who are employed can easily save about $100 a month. Not to mention you should have saved at least 10% of your paycheck anyways, before spending money on anything else. If you think about it, $100 a month is about the price of a fancy cup of coffee per day. Now, how much do you think you would have, after 30 years if you had saved $100 at the beginning of every month for the last 30 years if the interest rate is 5% compounded monthly? The answer would be $83,572.64. As you can see, a small amount of money that seems negligible over the long haul, will amount to a large sum that can be difficult or impossible to replace to make up for lost time. For those of you who are Millennials and haven’t been in the workforce for 30 years yet, start extracting and saving as much money as you can out of your paychecks so you can be the proud owner of a larger nest egg in the years to come. For some, doubling your savings to $200 a month would probably not be a difficult task for which the reward at the end of 30 years would be about $250,717 given

the same time value of money scenario previously shown. Find ways to cut your fixed monthly expenses such as cable or phone bills or any type of subscriptions which you may not have fully utilized. For those of you who dine out regularly, I am sure you can easily save $200 per month because it breaks down to only $50.00 per week. With the high cost of living now, a half decent meal for one person can cost you $10.00 each meal, while drinking only free water. If you search hard enough, most likely you’ll find areas to cut back on. Inspire yourself to take on the challenge of looking for ways to save money on something every day, to have that extra $100 or $200 at the end of the month to contribute for the future. If you would like to make some of your own calculations based on your situation and savings goals, a financial calculator would be a great tool to have. Extra Payments on Your Mortgage In the previous Time Value of Money example, we used 30 years to calculate the amount of money we’ll end up with if we consistently save $100 per month. This time we’ll explore how much sooner you can pay off your 30-year mortgage and how much interest savings you can accumulate, just by paying an extra $100.00 per month towards your mortgage. Let’s take for example, a $300,000 loan amortized over 30 years at a fixed rate of 4.5%. If just an extra $100.00 per month was paid toward the mortgage from the origination date, the life of the loan would be shortened by 3 years 7 months, which means your 30-year mortgage would be paid off in 26 years and 5 months. In addition, you would save $34,085.83 in interest over the life

of the loan. Again, it is the element of time that dramatically increases the overall savings stretched over a long period. Shortening the life of your mortgage by 3 years 7 months may not sound like anything to boast about, but it could mean the difference between retiring 3 years earlier or working for 3 more extra years. Which one do you prefer? If we now use an example with a higher mortgage amount, say $700,000 and an extra $400 paid monthly, beginning from origination, you would pay off the mortgage in 24 years 5 months which means you’ll save 5 years and 7 months. Keep in mind the higher the amount of the mortgage, the more you should contribute towards the principal each month. Page 78 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

The lifetime savings in terms of interest in this case, would be $123,368.22. As you can see, the rewards can be tremendous if you save your dollars now, to reap long term gains using the element of time.

Staying Calm in the midst of A Crisis. Part 1

By Althea Ledford

Page 90 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

Subscription link

True purpose is as much a spiritual process as it is a physical one. Often, to get through the difficult times you have to dig deep in your spirit, mind and body to reach that next level. You’re probably asking what does this have to do with the title of this article “Air Bubbles” and why is it titled Air

Air bubbles are the favorable, sometimes unexplainable coincidence that happen in the midst of a crisis. Bubbles?

For example, getting exactly what you need at the right time to carry you on a little further. It’s getting enough air to breathe on the way up. Air bubbles are not the total solution, they are indications that you’re going in the right direction. Page 91 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

Air bubbles are just enough of whatever it is you need to maintain and inch forward through a difficult situation. If you’re impatient like me, you’d rather be alive or dead, but that in-between is true torture. This article is about using your air bubbles and winning the challenge. Before we jump into the article, I wanted to give you a perfect example of the proper use of air bubbles during a crisis. This is from the actual live events of an Apollo 13 crisis which starts with “Houston , we have a problem”. And over the next several minutes a group of talented engineers figured out and implemented an answer bringing all the astronauts home. In reality, this was an appropriate time to panic.

Don’t waste precious minutes panicking. The concept of Air bubbles came from a Navy Seal training tactic which essentially says: Even if you think your dying, don’t panic. Those final minutes of staying calm and thinking could be what saves your life. This entire concept is counter intuitive. Panicking, temper tantrum, giving up are all normal reactions to “the last straw” in a crisis.

Be Prepared for things to go wrong. Correction, be prepared for a few things to go wrong. In order to be prepared, you need to take the following steps.

Page 92 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

Step 1) Master your terrain to the best of your ability. Once you realize you’re not in complete control of your situation, you want to off set that disadvantage with being as informed as possible. Become a quick study in all situations. The reason is some thinking and logic will transfer into several situations. If you can recall it and use it, your that much further ahead. Training is planning to win. Training under duress (stress training) is planning to win in adversarial, unpredictable conditions.

Step 2) Anticipate and prepare for several types of failures along the way. A failure/crisis is just a delay if your prepared for it. When a crisis occurs , the less energy and stress spent addressing the crisis, the more energy reserved for constructive progress through your overall process.

Subscription link

Step 3) Be focused, prepared and determined instead of blindly optimistic. In a perfect world everything will pan out but that rarely happens. Most people that do any type of highly competitive sports, challenges or life risking tasks will tell you-any given day a slight shift in events can change an outcome.

An important lesson from the past. Amelia Earhart failed to master the use of her radio. Prior to her transatlantic flight, she only learned enough of her radio’s operations to meet her minimal flight needs. If nothing went wrong, her level of radio operating skills would be considered adequate. However, based on the risks of her trip and the opportunity for failure, she should have know enough about all of her equipment to take it apart and put it back together again. While we can’t say for certain, but it’s very possible, if she had learned to change and understand the settings on her radio, she could have saved herself or she could have given rescue teams more opportunities to save her.

& Don’t Go still and maintain selfcontrol.

The best way to get around this is to 1) 1) decide to not lose it and remain calm. 2) 2) Realize your plan and back up plans should be implemented. 3) 3) Just because you’re not having fun doesn’t mean you’re not being effective so stay the course.

Step 4) Don’t Go Rogue It’s in our human nature to reach the end of our ropes and that usually happens under the scenario of “one more thing”. Meaning if one more thing happens, I’m going to lose it. These are usually the most important times to be


When creating back up plans, realize your going to be under duress when you have to implement them so make them easy. Also, make sure your plans will work so test them out before you need to use them.

Discern Your Support team before the crisis In a fox hole, with your hair on fire is not the time to learn who your friends are or to sort which friends are a best fit for certain situations. You must know who your friends are before you need them. You must also be the type of friend you want to attract. Below is a napkin trick I use to help illustrate types of friends and ideal friends in a crisis. We all have friends that are clean shaven, drive great cars, neatly pressed with everything in order. They are wonderful to take into a meeting or invite to a party because they look the part of success. These types of friends/associates are what I call clean neat napkins. On the other had we all have friends and family members we would never take to a meeting or have them even answer the phones in our office for fear of what they would actually say. It could be an aunt or grandmother that really speaks her mind-unedited. When friends come over they feed then and proceed to tell everybody all your business. Or a brother or uncle that carries a 6 pack of beer “ just in case” . They laugh real loud, have a heart of gold and looking for an excuse to party. This is the group I call rough around the edges. So here is the situation. If your down, distressed and need to be helped with no questions asked, who are you going to call? If you selected the rough around the edges group, your right. Many times your neat napkin friends will not put anything at risk or lift a finger to help you. They are only there if it’s smooth and easy or something to be gained. Whereas your rough around the edges friends may just be the ones to get out of bed to help you you needed them. You must learn to discern your friends before you’re in a pinch.

In what state of mind or mental room are You Waiting for your Answers? What most of us do and should absolutely not do is visualize, internalize and rehearse a problem. What we should do is visualize, verbalize and earnestly anticipate a solution. It’s a habit for most of us to see a problem or series of issues and mentally line them up all together. Then we start a mental tape of rehearsing the details of the problem in our heads. We also give details, elaborate on the impossibility of solving them. What we’re actually doing is putting energy and mass to the integrity of the problem. This is a direct road to giv-

ing up. If we stand in a dark space, we can’t expect an enlighten answer . Also, when we stand in a dark space and whine or rehearse the problem we’re telling ourselves an enlighten answer is impossible. Whining is quite effective as long as people are listening and becoming as frantic as we are. Whining feels great for a little while but we have to stop it.

Dark thoughts or a dark mental mind set weakens you physically, mentally and spiritually. These are all the personal resources you you’ll need to pull from in order to solve the problems. Page 95 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

The first thing we should do in times of crisis is speak the outcome that we want. Despite what you’re looking at, you must know and believe that solutions are as much a possibility as the crisis itself. Crisis usually has reversible and irreversible parts. So you’re speaking to and taking steps for the parts of your crisis that have opportunities for solutions. Think of this process as a grass planter or machine gun. The more positive

bullets you shoot out there, the more opportunities for great solutions you’re creating. Likewise the more you plant positive grass seed, the thicker and greater your opportunity for solutions. Just because life presents you with a temporary set of facts doesn’t mean you have to accept them without adding your own intention.

You intent, prayers or purpose does impact your overall outcome. So when crisis happen, and they always will, you have a multi prong approach. 1) restate the facts in the opportunity for a positive outcome. 2) communicate your hurt or stress just to get it out of the way. 3) communicate the outcome you want to experience. 4) take steps in that direction. As many steps and strategies as possible. Subscription link

The first time I heard the phrase, “Show up for you” my insides jumped. Instinctively I knew I was not fully showing up for myself. I had convinced myself that all was well in my life. I was married for thirteen years to the love of my life. We had two beautiful kids. I had recently completed my Master’s degree and the founder of The Princess Palace etiquette mentoring programs for girls. I was in the process of fulfilling and completing other goals on my list. Yet some how there was something missing. I could not put my finger on the deep void that was tugging at my soul. I had all the external reasons to be happy. I found myself going though the motions trying my very best to bring my dreams into reality. I was always the strong one. One day my niece asked me, “Who do you go to when you need support?” I replied, “God.” Everyone comes to me with his or her problems. I on the other hand can solve my own problems with God’s help. To be honest I would often take my problems away from God and deal with them alone. After all He did create me to have the wisdom to handle life’s issues. All I have to do is follow the rules and do what was Page 100 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

Right? So here I was stuck and unfulfilled with no way out. Because the burdens were getting heavy and I could no longer carry them. Thinking this way, I had no idea something would happen that would change everything about the way I was treating life and myself. One day leaving work, I was rear ended by a vehicle - not once but twice. The vehicle that hit me was rear ended so I was hit a second time. Somewhere between the impact, I remember everything going black, . Subscription link

through the dark valley of the shadow of death to enter this new and transformational place. Instead of living from the outside in I would now live from the inside out. During my recovery, I felt like I was walking through an eternal desert, barren, dry, no sustenance. Time and time again, I had to rely on this poignant message… “This is your answer…” when I had no hope, when I couldn’t see my future, when I couldn’t bare the pain of my head injuries. God’s words became the only reality I had. I had been shattered into a million pieces and I had no strength or will power to put it back together. I had to trust that voice in my spirit, my heart and my mind.

but before that happened, I pressed really hard on the brakes. I did not want to hit the car in front of me. While in the darkness, I recall it being so peaceful and quite Then I heard a very strong, yet soft voice - say, “This is your answer …the answer, to what?” I thought. In those few seconds I knew something had changed. In that moment of impact an infinite eternal flow birthed in me a new way of being. I was transformed by the renewing of my mind, body, and soul. My subconscious mind knew that I would have to go Page 101 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

There were profound reasons that the accident had left me with so many unbearable injuries - my body was failing me from my back, neck, shoulder, and head. I painfully struggled to function day to day. It would take years of treatment, two surgeries, and hundreds of hours of physical therapy to be healthy again. I remember one day, my head was in excruciating pain. I tried every medicine, but nothing I did would remedy the pain. My husband and children were in the living room watching TV; I could not move my mouth to call out for help. I began to give into the pain. I had no choice. The pain had consumed me. This was year three of my ten-year ordeal. I thought to myself this is it. My time here is over. I let the fear consume me as well. The only thing that was Subscription link

left for me to do was to surrender to whatever the moment was serving me. I did think to myself, “if or when I get out of this state I will do what I am on earth to do. No more messing around.” My mortality was real. I later was diagnosed with traumatic brain injury. I thought, “Great now my brain is gone.” I am walking with a limp, in constant pain, having problems talking and thinking. I could not hold a cohesive conversation to save my life. Writing was out of the question. How will I ever become an author, and speaker? Recovery was a day-to-day fight with some days having no fight at all. Somewhere during that time I realized I had hit rock bottom. I heard that phase many times and thought being at rock bottom was a term used for alcohol and drug addicts, so there is no way I could be at the bottom. I would later learn addictions come in many forms. Now I was facing that reality. I searched into my past and could see snapshots of what had bought me to the bottom. I remembered, right before I was rear-ended I was singing a praise song and giving thanks to God. I felt something had to change to set me on my path of purpose. However, I would have never imagined it would happen in this form of taking me though this dark tunnel. Page 102 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

All hell had broken loose. I was living in the wilderness. I believe the voice I head was God’s gift of hope to me. Then again I remembered that soft voice that said to me this is your answer. This time the same voice said to me, “When you are at rock bottom that is where I have you buried deep. Deep so that the seeds of your gift, talent, purpose, and power can take root, grow, bear fruit and manifest your dreams. Now own your worth. I will give you the strength, to become a speaker, author, and the vision to create and serve in the manner you are created for. Use your faith girl and get up.” Subscription link

I had my first speaking engagement since the accident three years ago. I remember getting the call. I was literally leaving the doctor’s office and felt I wasn’t completely ready. When I was given the date to speak, I took a mental pause to listen to the voice. I heard, “All you have to do is show up.” Ironically, the organization I was being booked for their motto is “It’s all about showing up” that tug I felt in my belly years ago was now reassurance to move forward.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things you cannot see. Forgive, love, and be grateful. Trust yourself to live from an abundant mindset, to use your gift and talents. I will show you the blueprint on how to move forward in your thoughts and actions. I was transformed.

About Schramsberg Schramsberg Vineyards is America’s House of Sparkling Wine. Producing world-class sparkling wine since 1965, Schramsberg Vineyards sources from over 115 diverse cool-climate vineyards from across 120 miles of coastline. This vineyard variety provides Schramsberg with the perfect Page 112 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

balance of fruitful aromas and flavors, along with a delightful crisp acid backbone, all of which is required to produce these stunning sparkling wines. Crafted under the time-tested Méthode Traditionnelle process, with each bottle going through

secondary fermentation within Schramsberg’s historic caves, each bottle of sparkling wine produced is a testament to the quality and dedication that has come to be Subscription link

The Wines: Schramsberg uses the Méthode Traditionnelle technique to create its nine distributed sparkling wines: the signature vintage dated Reserve, J. Schram and J. Schram Rosé; the classic vintage dated Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, Brut Rosé and Crémant; and the multi-vintage Mirabelle and Mirabelle Rosé. Since the 2001 vintage, the winery also produces the J. Davies Cabernet Sauvignon, made exclusively from grapes grown in the Schramsberg estate vineyards on Diamond Mountain.

Focused on quality: Producing just 60,000 cases annually, Schramsberg Vineyards is focused on the finest and most complex handcrafted sparkling wines in California. Schramsberg’s premium wines are crafted in very limited quantities: an average of 1,500 cases of J. Schram and 1,000 cases of Schramsberg Reserve are made each year. Rivaling the best of Champagne, Schramsberg wines are clear favorites amongst wine professionals in blind tastings conducted annually.

Handcrafted: Most of Schramsberg’s viticultural and winemaking practices are carried out by hand: grapes are hand-harvested, the wines are handcrafted, the bottles are stacked and riddled in underground caves. The J. Schram, Schramsberg's top Chardonnay offering is even hand-labeled.

Cool climate diversity: expected by sparkling wine lovers.

Located on Diamond Mountain in the famous Napa Valley, the winery’s history dates back to its founding in 1862. Founded by Jacob Schram, Schramsberg is the second oldest bonded winery in Napa, and is home to the oldest hillside vineyards and oldest hand-dug wine caves in Napa. Restored by Jack & Jamie Davies in 1965, the winery has never looked back as it defined itself as a true American icon.

Schramsberg Vineyards blends Pinot Noir and Chardonnay harvested from a broad array of cool-climate vineyard sources, including NapaCarneros, Sonoma-Carneros, Anderson Valley, Sonoma Coast and the Marin Coastal area. The winemakers draw from over 90 individual vineyards to create over 200 base wines each year. These wines are then used to create Schramsberg’s distinctive sparkling wines.

2006 J.Schram From the inception of Schramsberg’s efforts in 1965, the winery has sought to achieve the greatest elegance and individuality possible in our sparkling wines. J. Schram epitomizes Schramsberg’s philosophy to create a wine in which no effort has been spared and no care has been omitted. Representing only 3% of the winery’s annual production, the Chardonnayfocused J. Schram blend is assembled from the very best base wine lots of the approximately 250 produced each year. This special bottlingis dedicated to Schramsberg’s founder, Jacob Schram, and has been a great success since its premier 1987 vintage was released in 1992.Cluster samples from over 100 cool-climate vineyard sources are pulled several times before the optimal pick date for each block is selected. Complexity within the wine is gained through both oak barrel and stainless steel tank fermentation. Additional layers are provided through small lots that undergo malolactic fermentation, enriching aromas and

infusing creaminess on the palate. Our J. Schram is aged for over six years on the yeast in Schramsberg’s historic Diamond Mountain caves; each bottle is then riddled by hand, and finished with an exceptional brut dosage. J. Schram is quite appealing on its own as an apéritif or enjoyed with fresh shellfish, caviar on toast point, smoked salmon, tangy and sharp cheeses, seafood brochettes, cedar-planked lobster, mesquite-grilled quail, or Serrano ham & porcini risotto.

2012 Blanc De Blancs

Blanc de Blancs (white from white), made from Chardonnay, is the counterpart to the Blanc de Noirs (white from black), made from Pinot Noir. Blanc de Blancs was the first wine Schramsberg produced in 1965 and was America’s first commercially produced Chardonnay-based brut sparkling wine. Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs gained international recognition in 1972 when then President Nixon served the wine at the historic “Toast to Peace” in Beijing, China.The Schramsberg style of Blanc de Blancs is dry and crisp. Small lots of

Location malolactic- and barrel-fermented wines are added for complexity. The wine is aged on the yeast lees in the bottle for two years prior to disgorgement. With its vibrant, fruitful and crisp nature, this sparkling wine will maintain its freshness, structure and refined finish for many years, even decades following its initial release. While this wine can be enjoyed by itself as an apéritif, it is also perfect with fresh oysters and other shellfish, crab cakes, ceviche and grilled sea bass. It is also delicious with lemon chicken and Thai curries. Serve with aged Gouda or other hard cheeses, and as a counterpoint to soft triple creams.

Tasting Notes “The 2012 Blanc de Blancs has bright and fresh aromas of grapefruit, lime, green apple and white apricot. The fragrance of fruit is complemented with hints of yeast, white flowers, spicy ginger and fresh honeycomb. The lime, tangerine and pear flavors are tart and refreshing on entry.

Vitamin D and Stroke How does 25-hydroxyvitamin D (vitamin D) blood or serum level impact arterial health as it relates to a stroke? Well, causality is unclear and additional research is warranted, but recent studies conclude that low vitamin D serum levels with subclinical carotid atherosclerosis is highly associated with the risk of stroke. [1] In a recent study, vitamin D serum levels were measured for stroke outcome among 464 women who developed ischemic stroke and an equal number of women who were free of stroke through 2006 in the Nurses’ Health Study.

Senior author Dr. Qi Sun, MD et al, of the Nurses’ Health Study article entitled “25-hydroxyvitamin D levels and risk of stroke: A prospective study and

Page 120 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

meta-analysis” established an association between low vitamin D levels with the risk of stroke. Dr. Qi Sun and his colleagues agree that “maintaining adequate vitamin D status may lower the risk of stroke in women”. [2] In addition, a vitamin D deficiency is also link to a more server stroke and an unfavorable 90 day recovery outcome. [3] More importantly, reliable evidence links vitamin D deficiency to stroke in both men and women, it is believed that such a deficiency increases the risk of stroke by 50%. The question you should be asking yourself right now is what exactly is a stroke, how do I get the adequate amount of vitamin D per day, and are there any other preventive measures to decrease my risk of stroke? As you continue to read your questions will be answered.

So many of the meetings that I attended in my 20 years of corporate career undeniably cross my mind when I discuss the topic of filtering out time wasters. Years ago when I started managing projects, meetings quickly became a major part of my day. Each invitation to a meeting was the validation that I had been waiting for, that I was a valuable member of the team. I got to rub shoulders with clients and senior managers. I was moving up. I was the first to know the latest and the greatest. I enjoyed being a part of the decision making process, speaking up as the go-to person that other attendees wanted to hear from, and learning to anticipate potential issues for future meetings. I figured this was how the best managers made a living – hours of meetings each day, then returning phone calls and replying to emails that arrived during the meetings, finishing other project-related tasks, and going home at midnight or later. Some of the meetings were productive. Many more were an absolute waste of my

Page 134 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

time. Pretty soon these meetings became unbearably torturous and I could not stand them. I started refusing to attend meetings so I could get some work done and go home at a decent time. But I could not refuse all of them. I ended up sitting through many of these time wasters. Just to think that I let my beautiful youth pass by while sitting in conference rooms and watching some of the attendees feeling proud of their own voices while others played Sudoku on their phones‌.

Those meetings did not deserve my time. In simplifying your meetings, start with this bigger picture: Do you know

what deserves your time? How is your relationship with time? Is it strained because there is never enough of it? Is the passing of time hopeful and forgiving? How you spend your time is how you spend your life. Reflect on what it really means to you to have time. Time is the most precious commodity that life offers completely equally to every human being. There is same amount of time for everyone each day, no exceptions. In order to achieve and manage burnouts and life-work balance while accomplishing high and lofty personal and professional goals, you must use your time wisely. Make the most of your time. Do not waste it.

Page 135 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

In your attempts to maximize your productivity throughout the day, do you ever take breaks to slow down a bit and come up for air? I certainly hope so. This is a vital component in filtering out your time wasters. But what fills up these breaks? Are they productive breaks that truly rest your mind and body for your superhuman performance? Or are you just filling these breaks with more noise and useless complications, also known as time wasters? Meetings become time wasters because they can quickly fill up with routines that waste our energy and empowerment. Gossip, overeating, efforts without a clear goal, worrying about things that you can’t control, insufficient or insincere communication, and useless activities on electronic devices. Such dynamics can completely rob your productivity and passion for fulfillment. So, let’s throw out the destructor factors. Focus on the present moment. Protect your energy in your interactions with other attendees of your meetings. Hashing and re-hashing the same conversation without making a decision, meandering discussions that lead to no conclusions, then more meetings about meetings... crazy! If

this pattern is in your life, it’s affecting your life-work balance negatively. Dejunk and simplify. Here are some things that I recommend for creating productive meetings. Have a clear objective of the meeting that applies to everyone in attendance. Let them know why they are invited. It is downright shocking how many people attend meetings without knowing why they are there. So they just turn to their smart phone and start playing games. This is unacceptable. Encourage everyone’s participation to reach the objective.  ⚫ Truly

About Howard Schultz Howard Schultz is the chairman, president, and CEO of Starbucks and the author of the New York Times bestseller

It’s Not About the Coffee During his many years as a senior executive at Starbucks, Howard Behar helped establish the Starbucks culture, which stresses people over profits. He coached hundreds of leaders at every level and helped the company grow into a world-renowned brand. Now he reveals the ten principles that guided his leadership-and not one of them is about coffee. Behar shows that if you think of your staff as people (not labor costs) they will achieve amazing results. He discusses the importance of building trust, telling hard truths, thinking independently, and more. And he shares inside stories of key turning points for Starbucks, as it fought to hang on to its culture while growing exponentially. \

Onward In this #1 New York Times bestseller, the CEO of Starbucks recounts the story and Page 145 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

leadership lessons behind the global coffee company's comeback and continued success. In 2008, Howard Schultz decided to return as the CEO of Starbucks to help restore its financial health and bring the company back to its core values. In Onward, he shares this remarkable story, revealing how, during one of the most tumultuous economic periods in American history, Starbucks again achieved profitability and sustainability without sacrificing humanity. Offering you a snapshot of the recession that left no company unscathed, the book shows in riveting detail how one company struggled and recreated itself in the midst of it all. In addition, you’ll get an inside look into Schultz's central leadership philosophy: It's not about winning, it’s about the right way to win. Onward is a compelling, candid narrative documenting the maturing of a brand as well as a businessman. Ultimately, Schultz gives you a sense of hope that, no matter how tough times get, the future can be more successful than the past. Subscription link

Just as remarkable as this incredible growth is the fact that Starbucks has managed to maintain its renowned commitment to product excellence and employee satisfaction. Marketers, managers, and aspiring entrepreneurs will discover how to turn passion into profit in this definitive chronicle of the company that "has changed everything... from our tastes to our language to the face of Main Street" (Fortune). From the longtime CEO and chairman of Starbucks, a bold, dramatic work about the new responsibilities that leaders, businesses, and citizens share in American society today—as viewed through the intimate lens of one man’s life and work. What do we owe one another? How do we channel our drive, ingenuity, even our pain, into something more meaningful than individual success? And what is our duty in the places where we live, work, and play? These questions are at the heart of the American journey. They are also ones that Howard Schultz has grappled with personally since growing up in the Brooklyn housing projects and while building Starbucks from eleven stores into one of the world’s most147 iconic Page E Thebrands. Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

In From the Ground Up, Schultz looks for answers in two interwoven narratives. One story shows how his conflicted boyhood—including experiences he has never before revealed—motivated Schultz to become the first in his family to graduate from college, then to build the kind of company his father, a working-class laborer, never had a chance to work for: a business that tries to balance profit and human dignity. A parallel story offers a behind-thescenes look at Schultz’s unconventional efforts to challenge old notions about the role of business in society. From health insurance and free college tuition for part -time baristas to controversial initiatives about race and refugees, Schultz and his team tackled societal issues with the same creativity and rigor they applied to changing how the world consumes coffee. “Howard Schultz’s story is a clear reminder that success is not achieved through individual determination alone, but through partnership and community. Howard’s commitment to both have helped him build one of the world’s most recognized brands. It will be exciting to see what he accomplishes next.”—Bill Gates

Angel believes we should never stop educating ourselves. For her first leg of education at the beginning of college she chose psychology once she had satisfied that education she pursued business and law. Currently she is in pursuit of a marketing education when that education is satisfied she is sure she will find a new education interest to pursue.


Angel Toussant I first met Angel through my Riverside nafe director Joan E. Wakeland and was very impressed as to what a dynamic women she is. She also recently joined our Riverside nafe network. I also had the opportunity to hear her speak at several locations and she is amazing. I asked her to speak for some upcoming nafe meetings, which are in Menifee, Murrieta and Temecula and I am looking forward to those presentations. Angel Toussant was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska and at age 37 moved from Anchorage to Northern California. She remained in Northern California until April, 2016 at which time she found her new home in Murrieta,California. She said “my proudest life accomplishment is raising two phenomenal daughters. I love to say I can die a happy person if I accomplish nothing else in life because of the relationship I have with my girls. I am confident my relationship with my daughters is well above average and I am confident they feel the same way, despite the many parenting mistakes I made along the way”.

Her career choices are as varied as her education choices She has held positions from teachers aid to police officer and many careers in between. Currently, she is providing monitoring services for parents who are required by the courts to have supervised visits. She consider myself a serial entrepreneur, because she continually invests in endeavors that provide her the opportunity for her to grow a healthy income while doing what she loves to do, which is to always find new ways to help others around her, be it family, friend, or stranger. She has written and published two journal books. The first was for recovering addicts (out of print) and the second one is for goal‑setting. She is currently writing a personal growth book which she plans to publish by year end. She owns an online store (LifesPowerStore.Com) thttp:// hat sells, educational/ personal growth books, and other educational, inspirational, motivational tools and products. Her hobbies, like her education and careers are varied. She enjoys golf, horseback riding, photography (nature and wildlife), snow skiing, boating, jet skiing, jewelry making, hiking, bike riding, and graphic design.
