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. I am the one that gives birth and keeps life goingwhether I have to nudge it with my heart, my mind, my blood or my foot! I keep the bass rhythm of life moving. I am that female that executes the needed, the necessary and the fantastic. I am THAT female executive.

From the Editor’s Desk

Welcome to this issue of E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive. This month’s theme is: “The Power of GO!” Have you ever come to a complete stop? Stopped going to school, stopped working on your business, stopped taking care of yourself, stopped exercising or any series of stops? If you've ever stopped something with the intention of getting back to it, did you? The odds of picking back up where you left off are never in your favor. The trick is to keep going. Momentum is a powerful force when mixed with the right ingredients. Every great accomplishment is riddled with challenge, opposition, preparation and a number of obstacles “average” mindsets would succumb to. But YOU are not average so we don’t expect YOU to quit or trick yourself into a soft quit aka “on hold” or suspension”. Fortune favors the bold”. Everyone has a busy schedule, so here are some other options to help you avoid stopping: 1) slow down, 2) recalculate you priorities, 3) stream line your processes or 4) call in the troops for help. I'm going to circle that last option of calling in the troops. That can be everything ranging from, passing out chores to the family, shared responsibilities, carving out time for you just as if you were going into the office. And most importantly, setting up boundaries. Voids have a funny way of being filled. If you release yourself from something you wanted to finish, that extra time will be filled up with something else-thus pushing you even further from your goals. Don’t give space to anything that will delay, detour or distract you. These little foxes kill, steal and destroy the birthing process of a vision. Stay on point, keep focus and press towards the mark of excellence. The power of momentum is in your favor.

I hope you enjoy this issue. -Althea Ledford

Since the early days of social media, the question most often asked has been, “What do I post?” Today, as you’re looking at your LinkedIn profile (trying to dress it up as you navigate your career upstream) or your Facebook or Instagram feed (trying to tone it down as you decide to take your career more seriously), the core of that question has not changed. “What do I post that will portray the image of the me I want to be?” is perhaps the mostasked version from people ready to take their career seriously, or seriously to the next level. And that typically happens when your Why does not align with what you thought your passion was, or when your Passion does not seem to align with the work you do, and you are ready to make the effort required to make a change. Ok here’s the thing. It all starts with you. Who you are. What you believe. What you believe in. What you will always choose. Because that’s how people come to know you. Page 42 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

People and life will test you and everyone will take notice of how you respond. How do you respond? Think about it because your response is based on what you believe. Your core values are the internal compass that guides you through any decision. You cannot waiver far from your own true North and stay happy and sane. So, you need to understand and be clear about your own personal, unique guiding values. Subscription link etmmedia.net


this far, you know the first step is to be clear about who you are and your intention. Regardless of the channel, Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter, stick to you and your authentic self. Share content (either yours or someone else’s) that demonstrate the principles that you hold dear. Help your readers and viewers make the connection by highlighting what attracted you. Karé Anderson sums it up like this and I haven’t heard a more clear or articulate statement of what I believe is our collective strength:

Start building trust right now. People feel a natural connection to the authentic. It’s not hard to create what’s already there… you just need to stay plugged in once you find it. That’s how communities of followers are built. Just as sure as the traveler looks for firm ground, those you meet will feel more secure when they feel you are consistently real and authentic. In person, look folks in the eye and make your handshake firm. Online, you must do the same thing. How do you accomplish it? If you’ve read Page 43 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

“The stronger the signal we send to ourselves of our specific, highest purpose, the greater the clarity we have about it, and attention we instinctively give to it. We are better able to describe it, to recognize individuals, situations, insights and other resources that can support us in serving it – and to be more astute, caring supporters of others in serving their higher purpose.” ‒ A Mutual Matters Credo Preparation Principles Be Vulnerable Do other people see the real me or am I wearing a mask obscuring who I really am? What is holding me back from portraying my authentic self in public? Subscription link ETMMedia.net


Be real. Show your authentic self to the world. Clarify your “specific, highest purpose” and live it. Let that self-shape your message and share it as wildly as the cybersphere will let you. Seek out others who support and grow your message. Use your powers for good. John Wayne famously said, “Courage is being afraid but saddling up anyway”. Let’s be clear. Everybody is afraid of something. We are all vulnerable on some level. We create convoluted techniques to hide the places we are uncomfortable showing. No matter how much we “trust”, there are somethings we are willing to reveal. But here’s the thing – are we afraid of our weaknesses or afraid of asking for help? Is that simple action of revealing ourselves the same as admitting that we are less than perfect? Nobody can do it all. Nowhere in history has one person done it alone. Everyone has a story of a mentor or of someone who helped and made a difference in their life. That gift remains with each of us for all of our lives regardless of the success or failure we experience. And it is a gift. What if we can find a way to share that gift with people who we meet and who are important to us? The very giving frees you from the fear that keep you from saddling up. The giving builds trust with your team. And the best part is the result is almost always better than any individual on the team could have provided. So Page 44 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

Th Go Stu

strip away the camouflage, the patches, all the subterfuge and ask for help. Delegate the activities that you don’t do well, provide clear direction on what you need and stand back and trust someone else to amaze you. Now is the time to be Accountable to yourself You have to die. Everything else is a choice. Your choice. It’s time to stop blaming your parents, your enemies, your circumstances or whatever monsters you have created to blame for your unhappiness. If you don’t like it, change it.

Be real. Show your authentic self to the world. Clarify your “specific, highest purpose” and live it.

Here’s the truth with a capital T. If you don’t try, nothing will change. Find Your Why (Who are you at your core?) What motivates me, gives me my "why" for getting up in the morning and facing the world? What you do is driven by your why. Your WHY drives you to seek excellence in everything you do, even when no one is watching. What things seem to pull at you even as your life moves through all the highs and lows, noisy and quiets moments? Marketing expert, Alex Mandossian gets his audience to answer their core Why and it’s Page 45 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

always an action verb… what is it that you DO? “I [Your Verb], therefore I am.”What you do is driven by your why. Your WHY drives you to seek excellence in everything you do, even when no one is watching. What things seem to pull at you even as your life moves through all the highs and lows, noisy and quiets moments? Marketing expert, Alex Mandossian gets his audience to answer their core Why and it’s always an action verb… what is it that you DO? “I [Your Verb], therefore I am.” My personal Why is “I love, therefore I am”. I want people I meet to feel my heart. I want to make people feel valued. In the spirit of poet Maya Angelou, I want people to remember not what I said or did, but how I made them feel, even if they experience my work without my being in the room. Everything I do stems from my love for God’s most precious creation. What fuels your desire to seek excellence, not because it’s a competition, but because you truly enjoy it? What do you do when no one is watching? What things seem to pull at you even as your life moves through all the highs and lows, noisy and quiets moments? Some people teach, some people are care-givers, others seek to refine processes or relationships. As sure and as subtle as magnetism, we are naturally drawn to certain experiences and people. Often, we aren’t even aware of it, but we strive to use our talents in certain ways that make us unique. Let’s be clear –what do you Subscription link ETMMedia.net


Think back to the times you felt things strongly. Are there common elements of these multiple moments that you remember? have to do; what can you not avoid expressing? To clarify your Why, try a twopronged approach. First, create a list of the things that you enjoy doing. Focus on things that you enjoy so much that time seems to slip away without you realizing it. As you review, modify and add to this list, look out for things that you do without thinking, that just seem to speak to something inside you. I use the following questions to ignite the process: Think back to your happiest moments. What were you doing? Who were you with? What made it pleasurable? •

Play your life like a movie. Think back to school events, summer camp, church, activities and play in your neighborhood. Think back to the times you felt

Page 46 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

things strongly. Are there common elements of these multiple moments that you remember? Think in reverse. What are the things that you find most hateful and disturbing. What makes you mad and leaves you frustrated. Now think about the opposite of those things. You may find that your Why crystalizes in front of your eyes. • What do you do when you have free time? What do you do when you are bored? • What is exciting? What relaxes you? Why? • When you don’t have any pressing obligations or when the most pressing obligation is to do something for yourself, what do you choose? • Do you like to solve problems? Do you go outside and what do you do? Subscription link etmmedia.net


•Is it more about the event or the fact

that you have to concentrate and think about something other than your day? Do you do it alone or with people? •

How do you feel after? Why? Do you have new energy or do you just burn off the stress? What are your hobbies? What about these activities do you like? What about them make you the most comfortable/at ease? Remember the last time you “lost track of time”. What were you doing? Who were you with? What do you remember that was enjoyable or that made you feel that the time flew by?

Trigger the second prong while you work on your list. Ask your friends and others who know you well to describe what talents they think about when they think of you. Try to get them to express what they think of as your unique capabilities. Think of your own friends – who do you call on to help you get organized, who is helpful when you need to brainstorm, who is good at simplifying a problem, so you can implement actions? It is often easier to see qualities in others than in ourselves and you can use your friends perspectives to help clarify your own thinking. If you include family, friends, work colleagues and/or team mates you will get a broad perspective that may help you hone in on the Why that drives you.

Laura: Hi Lisa. Thank you so much for speaking with me about Divorce Mediation today. So your Website, Mediationisbest.com, is that more than just a URL? Lisa: Yes Laura. It is my philosophy after practicing law for over 21 years, that alternative dispute resolution, which is really mediation and arbitration, is more cost efficient, faster, and can even be less stressful for participants than litigation. I represent clients in divorce actions in court and conduct divorce mediations on a daily basis so I can say this first hand. So, yes, I do believe Mediation is Best! In fact, I always try to explain the option of mediation to people who contact my office for representation in a divorce action because I honestly believe that it is the best process for most people. Laura: When you say “most people”, are there some couples for whom Divorce Mediation is not an option? Or maybe not the right option? Lisa: Absolutely. When I first speak with potential mediation participants, I do ask if there has been any allegations by either side of domestic violence, which can be physical, verbal or financial, or substance abuse by either party. This is because if there is an imbalance of power, which is true in the case of domestic violence, mediation is not the correct process. Additionally, if there is substance abuse, I have concerns about the person being able to participate in the process in a constructive fashion, and, in the end, I cannot have someone sign an agreement if they are Page 58 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

under the influence of a substance that makes them unable to understand what they are signing. In those limited circumstances, I do believe that the adversarial system potentially offers people more protection. Laura: How is Mediation different? Lisa: The easiest way to explain the mediation process is to compare and contrast it, with the more well-known adversarial or “two lawyer” system. With the adversarial process, the parties each hire their own attorneys, and those attorneys will counsel their respective client and discuss heir client’s position with each other outside of the presence of the clients. Often times, the conflict can become influenced by the posturing of the Subscription link etmmedia.net


way more “emotional heat” than the Husband ever intended. In mediation, all the parties are in the same room, talking to each other with the mediator present to assist them in having constructive, meaningful conversations that can lead to a settlement. There is no filtering of the message from one party to the other. And, as Mediator, I can actually assist the parties in removing the emotional components of the discussion and keep them focused on the facts at hand. Of course, the other factor is cost. It is probably five times less than protracted litigation. Plus the “fees” are much more predictable and the parties have more control over the costs and when they pay them as compared to litigation. Laura: So what exactly is Divorce Mediation and how does it work?

attorneys, and can even become blown out of proportion. I liken this to the game of telephone I used to play as a childwhere one person starts a message by whispering into the next person’s ear. By the time the message gets to the last person, it has completely mutated into a different statement. The change can occur subtly as it passes from one person to the other. So if Husband tells his attorney he wans his baseball card collection as soon as possible, then his attorney is in a heated conflict about another issue of the case with Wife’s attorney and drops in the information about the baseball cards, the Wife’s attorney may the relay the message to his client with Page 59 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

Lisa: We typically meet in my conference room once a week for one to two hours, until we have covered all of the pertinent issues, including custody and parenting time (visitation), child support, spousal support (maintenance) and equitable distribution. At that point, I draft a “Proposed Settlement Agreement” based on all of the discussions had by the parties. We go over the Agreement in a follow up meeting so that the parties understand it, and then the parties are given the opportunity to take the Settlement Agreement to have it reviewed by independent counsel of their choice. This is not required, but I always give participants the option of doing so. Once the Proposed Settlement Agreement is finalized on consent of the parties, I draft and file the papers for the parties to obtain an Uncontested Divorce.

Laura: What about people with young children. Do you resolve custody and visitation issues? Lisa: When I meet with participants with children for the first time at a consultation, I always tell them that their children are actually “the most important people not in the room”. This resonates throughout the entire process and sometimes I have to remind them once things are underway. During the mediation process, before the participants have filled out any financial forms, or provided any documents, we discuss custody and parenting time, which is the terminology I prefer to use. I mean, a parent should not be “visiting” with his/her child, right? They are parenting the child. So we assign parenting time. First I will explain the principals of residential and legal custody to the participants so they understand the terms. And then the parties have a conversation, that I help lead if necessary, discussing, quite simply, where the children should live (residential custody) and how important, non “day-to-day” decisions should be made for the children by the parents (legal custody). I have, quite fortunately, found that most of the time, this decision comes quite quickly to the participants. Then we hammer out a detailed parenting time schedule involving weekday and weekend parenting time, as well as holidays. It is here that I Page 60 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

find mediation so wonderful as we have the ability to really craft a schedule that is tailored for the parties and the children’s specific circumstances. This is especially true for individuals who may not have a typical 95 job situation. Laura: Do your Mediation clients ever end up in Court?

Lisa: As I tell participants in the initial consultation in my office, my goal is to keep the parties out of Court today and every tomorrow after. The parties are made aware that nothing, no issue, is too big or small to Subscription link etmmedia.net


discuss during a meeting. Often times the parties are unable to get to the bigger issues because they become hung up in the smaller, day to day conflicts that arise, especially if the parties are still living in the same home. But this is true in litigation as well. In Mediation, I encourage the parties, when they first walk in for a meeting, to let me know if there are any urgent matters or conflicts to discuss before we get to what I may have on my list as the next issue to discuss and resolve. Things can get petty. I have had couples who are hiding each other’s toiletries Page 61 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

and turning off the power when the other is trying to cook dinner. That type of “War of the Roses” (one of my favorite movies, by the way) behavior does not lend itself to mediation. I have lost a few along the way in those types of situations. But those are few and far between. Fortunately, most of the time the participants I work with are committed to the Mediation process, and understand that this means they have to be civil to each other. Of course I do have parties get emotional during meetings, but I have methods of assisting them through that. In every Mediated Settlement Agreement, I include language that the parties are committed to returning to Mediation if they need to modify the Agreement or if a conflict arises. This, as I explain to them, is because none of us have a crystal ball, and circumstances can change in the future. And I have had people return to make adjustments “Post Judgment” (after the Divorce Judgment is signed and entered)often years later. The process then is the same as before. We discuss, I draft, they sign and file the Modification to Settlement Agreement as pro se litigants. Laura: But what if the issue that comes up in Post Judgment is urgent-like a party isn’t paying Child Support? Are they prevented from going to Court if it is absolutely necessary? Lisa: Not at all. The participants in my Mediations are well aware that Mediation is a

Subscription link ETMMedia.net


voluntary process. During the initial Divorce Mediation, people are free to stop if they want. If they stop the process because of reconciliation, I wish them luck and send them on their way, hopeful for their success at a second chance-it has happened, though it is rare. If they are heading in the direction of litigiation, I may try one last meeting to see if we can resolve the conflict without Court, if they are willing, because I know what is in store for them. But the choice is theirs and I cannot and will not stop them from going to Court if that is what they feel they need to do. In the Settlement Agreements I draft as Mediator, I make it clear that Mediation is not a “precondition” to litigation and if an emergency, such as non-payment of support arises, a party is not precluded from going to Court on an emergency basis, or otherwise. Mediation is never a precondition to litigation. But I do want the parties to think twice before turning Page 62 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

to litigation if that is possible, and to return to the Mediation process to address any changes or conflicts that develop. And I have been pleasantly surprised to see that happen, for example, in cases where circumstances for custody and parenting time change because a party wants to move. I am happy to say I have been able to assist people in resolving these types of issues which would cost them tens of thousands of dollars to litigate in Court for a fraction of the cost and, more importantly, minimal adverse impact on the lives of the parties and the children because of the parties’ willingness to work together in the Mediation process. Laura: Do you ever do a Separation Agreement for people rather than going forwardto Divorce? And why would someone do a Separation Agreement rather than go forward with getting the actual Divorce? Subscription link etmmedia.net


Lisa: Yes. One of the things we discuss during the Mediation is whether the parties want a Separation or to go all the way through with a Divorce. The two most common reasons given for Separation vs. Divorce are: (1) the concern of one party losing health insurance benefits upon divorce, and (2) the parties are not sure they want the divorce, but they need something in place to secure finances and, often, custody and visitation. We discuss the pros and cons, and the parties make an informed decision together, as they do with every other issue. Laura: Any crazy stories to share? Lisa: Actually, when I was first doing Divorce Mediation, I worked for a firm that had me travel to different offices he rented around Long Island to meet with the clients. I remember one office had all of these baseball bats in glass boxes hanging on the Page 63 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

walls everywhere, including the conference room. All I could think was that if things got heated, this was an invitation for disaster! I never really understood that. But now it’s kind of funny and fortunately, they were a nice calm couple. Laura: Lisa, thank you so much for that overview. Hopefully people will see that Mediation is an option for their Divorce. Lisa: Thank you Laura. Its always a pleasure to talk with you! And hopefully your readers will see why I believe Mediationisbest is more than just a URL! Laura: And finally Lisa, would you say that the process of Divorce is black and white or 50 Shades of Grey? Lisa: 50 Shades, definitely. Every situation is different. Every personality. But that’s what keeps it interesting, right Laura? Laura: Absolutely. Subscription link ETMMedia.net

You’ve probably thought to yourself in a not too distant past, of how young you were and that you didn’t have to worry about, save or plan for retirement. So how is that working out for you? Just as the days fly by, years and decades fly by just as fast and before you know it, you’re wallowing in a sea of regret of why you didn’t start saving for retirement sooner. Not only did you not save any money for retirement, but you’ve racked up an insurmountable load of debt, essentially taking many steps backwards towards achieving your retirement goals. Of course, I’m guilty of this myself, but many times we try to sustain a lifestyle we cannot afford by making purchases on credit knowing we are not able to pay it off at the end of the month. Once this type of spending pattern begins, it will continue to snowball, building up ever larger debts for many years to come.

Don’t worry: Regardless of what stage in life you’re in, the good news is, it’s never too late to begin the journey towards a comfortable retirement.

Don’t worry: Regardless of what stage in life you’re in, the good news is, it’s never too late to begin the journey towards a comfortable retirement. Don’t dwell on the past. However, you must not procrastinate for another day as I will discuss some of the most important concepts to understand Page 80 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

and apply, when it comes to retirement planning.

Multiply by 25 Rule – This rule is a tool to give you an idea of how much to save up depending on how much you need for annual spending during your retirement years. For example, if you want to withdraw $60,000 per year, you will need to save up $1,500,000 ($60,000 X 25). However, if you can live comfortably withdrawing just $48,000 per Subscription link etmmedia.net


Take advantage of retirement savings vehicles that have tax benefits such as employer sponsored 401K, Roth IRA and Traditional IRA Accounts.

Employer 401K Match – If you work for

year ($12,000 less per year), you will only need to save up $1,200,000 ($48,000 X 25). What this means is that you need to save $300,000 for every $12,000 in annual withdrawal during retirement. In other words, if you can reduce your spending by $1000 per month during retirement ($12,000 annually), it can help you avoid lots of stress of having to save significantly more during your working years. After all, it’s always easier to spend less money than to have to save up more. Page 81 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

an employer that offers a 401K Match, always take advantage of it. If your employer will match up to 3%, then you must first contribute at least 3% of your income in order to benefit from your employer’s contribution. However, if you only contribute 2%, then your employer will only contribute 2% which means you’re leaving some free money on the table. Abandoning any amount of free money over the course of your career can mean tens of thousands of dollars in lost savings over the long term. In addition to contributing up to the amount your employer will match, you should, if possible, contribute as much more as you can afford to.

Roth IRA -

Contributions to Roth IRA are not tax deductible. However, any interest, dividends or distributions earned are tax free, as long as nothing Subscription link ETMMedia.net


is withdrawn before the age of 59 ½ at which time it may be taxed at the federal and state level, as well as an early withdrawal penalty assessed by the IRS. There are certain situations when you can withdraw before age 59 ½ without the penalty, such as; if you are a firsttime home buyer and you need some of the funds for a down payment, or, if used for higher education. The Roth IRA also has income requirements which must be met before you’re allowed to contribute. For 2017, in order for you to qualify to contribute to a Roth IRA, your modified adjusted gross income should be < $186,000 if you are married filing jointly. However, you can contribute a reduced amount if your income is ≥ $186,000 but < $196,000. Once your modified adjusted gross income is ≥ $196,000, then you will not be able to contribute to the Roth IRA. For single filers, your modified adjusted gross income should be <$118,000. If the income is ≥ $118,000 but <$133,000 then you’re able to contribute a reduced amount but phases out at a modified adjusted gross income of ≥ $133,000.

The correct way to use credit cards is to pay off the entire balance at the end of the month.

Traditional IRA – Traditional IRA accounts are usually tax deductible, but whether or not it is, depends on whether you have an employer sponsored 401K as Page 82 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

well as how much your adjusted gross income is for the that particular year. There are current guidelines for 2017 listed on www.irs.gov. The annual contribution limit for a traditional IRA is $5,500 and if you’re age 50 or over, then the contribution limit increases to $6500. Now if you qualify to contribute to both a Traditional IRA and a Roth IRA, the combined contribution limit is still the same. In other words, if you’re under age 50, and you decided to contribute $3,000 to the Roth IRA, then the maximum you can contribute to the Traditional IRA is $2,500. Subscription link etmmedia.net


effect of compounding interest for the amount that was cashed out for the life of the investment. For example, cashing out a $50,000 401K savings will only leave you with $32,500 if taxed at 25% plus a 10% penalty. It is advisable that once you leave an employer, to roll over your 401K to a traditional IRA account so you have the ability to keep track of how it’s doing as well as the benefit of not having all of your investments scattered which makes it difficult to track.

Rule of 72 – You may

Compound Interest – Compound interest occurs when interest is initially added to the principal, and any future interest is then earned on principal and any previously accumulated interest. Once you understand theavoid the temptations to cash out your 401K every time you leave an employer. benefits of compounding interest, you will Any amount you cash out before the age of 59 ½ will be assessed a federal and state tax and a 10% IRS penalty which can quickly add up to a significant amount of savings considering it will also lose the Page 83 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

have heard of this term, but just in case you’re not familiar with it, it is a way to determine what length of time it will take your investment to double depending on the rate of return. For example, you invest $100 at 4%, it will take 18 years for your $100 to double into $200 (72 = 4 X 18). However, if you invest $100 at 9% interest, then it will only take 8 years to double to $200 (72 = 9 X 8). I’m not encouraging you to invest your hard-earned money on risky investments that promise high returns, but to encourage you to start your savings early as most safe investments have lower returns but takes a longer period of time to double.

Getting in perpetual debt will only set you back on your retirement goals because the interest you’re paying every month for years and years, could be compounding your retirement savings.

Reduce Spending -

This advice may sound a bit redundant but I cannot emphasize how important it is, as our monthly income is usually limited and the only way to increase your savings is to decrease your spending. There are many simple ways to

Page 84 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

gradually cut your spending such as reducing your visits to the nearest coffee shop from 3 times a day to only once in the morning. Once you’ve got that habit in control, reduce those visits from 7 times a week to only 3 or 4. It may sound like an enormous feat to conquer but if you make those changes one small step at a time, you’ll thank yourself later in retirement. Once you’ve put these concepts to practice, you will be well on your way to retiring comfortably

Chocolate Pairings By Laurie Forster, The Wine Coach® Chances are you are going to be indulging in some chocolate this Cupid’s Day, whether from your Valentine or that you bought to treat yourself. This might lead you to the question, “What wine should I pair with my chocolate hearts and truffles? It’s important to note that a good pairing will depend on the type of chocolate you’re savoring. Overall, you want to match bolder, darker chocolates with bigger wines and lighter, sweeter chocolates, like white or milk, with lighter wines. In my opinion, sweet and fortified wines work better with chocolate than dry wines. Before you start writing letters to disagree with me—I do acknowledge that there are some dry red wines, like Cabernet or Zinfandel that can work wonderfully. Here are my suggested pairings for dark, milk and white chocolate. All you need to do is invite the right person and add some love.

Dark There are actually several great choices when choosing a perfect partner for dark chocolate. One of my favorites is Brachetto d’Acqui

from the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy. Made primarily from the Brachetto grape, this red sparkling dessert wine has intense raspberry flavors with the perfect amount of sweetness for dark chocolate. Think of it

also act to cleanse your palate before each new bite of dark chocolate. The traditional favorite of chocolate lovers is Port and I especially like

Tawny Port with chocolate. Tawny Ports are known for their dark rich flavors of raisins, toffee, caramel and nuts, which happen to all be great toppings for chocolate. These ports are named after their tawny color, which is obtained by aging the wine in oak. True Port wines are fortified wines from Portugal (called Porto), but great Tawny Port-style wines are made in Australia, the United States and South Africa. Another fortified wine that is a great partner with dark chocolate is Banyuls. This dessert wine is made

from the red grape, Grenache, in the Roussillon region of southern France. Like port, this wine is fortified with a distilled spirit made from grapes. This fortification takes place before fermentation is complete which leaves residual sugar (i.e. sweetness) in the wine. With a rich texture and flavors of raisins, plums, mocha and black cherries, this is the perfect partner to dark chocolate or, to enjoy all by itself!

as a raspberry sauce for your chocolate. The bubbles

Milk & White

are sweet and full bodied with the aromas of rose petal, ginger and orange as well as raisins.

White and milk chocolate require more delicate pairings. These are sweeter chocolates and don’t work with dry wines like dark chocolate does. One of my favorite pairings for these types of chocolates is Moscato d’Asti.

This Valentine’s Day, no matter whether you are going out or staying in, there is a wine to sip with your favorite chocolate indulgence. Just take into consideration the type of chocolate when choosing the right partner in order to ensure that the two complement each other. Just like for every person

Semi-sparkling or frizzante, this sweet white bubbly is made from the Moscato Bianco grape in Piedmont Italy, just like its red relative Brachetto. Perfumed floral aromas mix with flavors of ripe peach and pear. Moscato’s acidity keeps it from seeming too sweet and is a nice contrast to the creaminess of these chocolates. Also, due to its having a lower alcohol content than most wines (5-7%), it’s a great choice for the end of a meal. Another great partner for white or milk chocolate is a fortified Muscat wine. There are some great French examples such as Beaumes de Venise

and Muscat de Riveslates which are the classic standards. New world countries make their own versions of these Muscat based dessert wines, including South Africa, California and Australia. In Australia, they call dessert wines, like Muscats, “stickies” referring to their full, rich consistency. I especially like the Australian Muscats coming from the Rutherglen region because they are not only delicious but also a good value. Muscats

there is a soul mate; for every chocolate there is the right wine.

Try this pairing for White Chocolate… Ceretto Santo Stefano Moscato d’Asti (Piedmont, Italy) Capitalize on the Moscato craze! Fruity, Fizzy and aromatic, this Moscato will make them as giddy as their first crush. Delicious with every sip and only 5.5% alcohol, this is a great lunch or brunch wine, too. Pair with your white chocolate treats for a heavenly combination.

Try these pairings for Dark Chocolate… Banfi Rosa Regale Brachetto d’Acqui (Piedmont, Italy) One whiff of the Banfi Brachetto brings images of roses and raspberries to mind. This sweet sparkler has a clean finish that is perfect for chocolate. The acidity of this wine also makes it a good paring for spicy Asian dishes or salads with berry vinaigrettes.

Warre’s “Otima” 20 year Tawny Port (Portugal)

Try this pairing for Milk Chocolate… Yalumba Museum Muscat (Australia) Made from the red and pink varieties of Muscat, this “sticky” from Yalumba is the perfect sip with milk chocolate. Yalumba is one of the oldest family run wineries in Australia and delivers great value across all its wines. This sweet Muscat is amber in color with ginger and orange aromas and a touch of rose petal.

Aged for 20 years in seasoned oak barrels, this tawny port has perfectly balanced tannins and acids making each sip bright and elegant. Flavors of nuts and raisins make it a great match for chocolate mousse or chocolate

Domaine de la Rectorie Banyuls (Roussillon, France) Made from slightly raisinated Grenache grapes, this is a definite soul mate for chocolate! This fortified wine is a great crossover for people who already know and love ruby Port. The Domaine de la Rectorie Banyuls is full and smooth with flavors of red berries and a touch of spice.

Ingrid here, your chocolate eating, wine drinking health coach, to help you create a more balanced lifestyle so that you can shine, not just in one area of your life, but in all areas of your life! But first, why am I talking about living a more balanced lifestyle? We as women spend a lot of time compartmentalizing the various areas of our lives: relationships, career, money, health… but we all know that if one area is out of whack, our WHOLE life is affected. There’s a saying I have, “How you do one thing, is how you do everything”. Imagine making tons of money and being in a loving, happy marriage or relationship BUT you have no time to exercise. Pretty soon your appreciation for your flow of money and love is diminished because your body is not getting the exercise it needs to feel alive and energized. That’s why it’s so important to think of your life as one holistic pie, and make the decision to put your energy into making every piece of that pie as yummy as possible. So, what would create a more balanced lifestyle look like?

Creating a more balanced lifestyle would mean taking a really good look at All areas of your life: relationships, career, money, exercise, health…making decisions about what is and what isn’t working in each area. Sometimes the reason we stay stuck in unhealthy or unhappy areas of our lives is because it’s easier in a way, to stay stuck in what’s familiar, rather than find the creativity and energy to make the changes needed to improve our quality of life and move into the unknown. In my coaching practice, I cover all of the areas mentioned above, but today I’m going to share with you a couple of my favorite things that will contribute to having a more balanced lifestyle in the areas of creating more energy,(which we all could use) and calming the mind to create more focus throughout your day.

Let’s start with first thing in the morning. So, not everyone has 15-30 extra minutes every morning to do yoga poses or some sort of exercise to get the juices flowing, but I bet we could all squeeze in 3 minutes first thing, even before we get out of bed.

Step 1*

First set a happy alarm 5

We mo for the

minutes earlier than usual. Your body responds to messages that you give it, so give it a happy ring to wake up to! Download your favorite tune or nature sound and use that as your happy alarm sound. Set it for just 5 minutes earlier than usual, that all. Your body will thank you!

Th ne da wa Ib ge you

Step 2*

Start your body stretch as soon as you open your eyes. Often times in the morning, once weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re up we get distracted by emails, text messages, or racing to get that first cup of coffee. So, carpe diem, seize the day by starting your stretch even before you get out of bed! Lying down, simply stretch your legs out and reach your arms overhead and REALLY stretch your body, or sit up in bed and do the same, this time stretching your arms to the ceiling.

An

Step 3*

Lastly, finish your body stretch right next to your bed. The key is to honor these 3 minutes you have set aside to stretch your body. The trick is to FOCUS your attention inward, breathe DEEP inhales and exhales, and reach up for the sky. You can clasp your fingers overhead to keep them together to deepen the stretch. How does this stretching boost energy you ask? Page 110 E The Magazine for Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Female Executive

ell, you know how sometimes on a chilly orning when you start your car, you let it run r a couple of minutes to warm up and get e gas circulating?

he same is true for our bodies. All they really eed to get going is a little kick start for the ay, and a simple stretch as soon as you ake up will do it. bet you will feel different immediately, and et the boost of energy that you need to start ur day off right!

nother area that is essential to living a balanced lifestyle is calming your body and mind. Here are 2 super ways to calm your body and mind throughout the day. They will help keep you focused and energized as you go through your day. Step 1 can be done right in your office, or if you live in the LA area like myself, it can be REALLY helpful if you’re stuck in our wonderful traffic! Lol Step 1* Put both feet firmly on the ground, sit up straight with your shoulders pulled back to open up your heart, close your eyes, (obviously not while driving) and take full, DEEP breaths, in and out, in and out, in and out. Shoot for 10 times. When you open your eyes, notice how different your body feels. Do you feel calmer, clearer, more relaxed?

Page 111 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

Now that you’ve calmed your body, are you ready for step 2? Don’t worry, it’s just as easy. So, you’ve heard of positive affirmations right? Well, I believe they actually work. I use them every day! Why? Because your body is not going to do what you tell it to do unless your mind believes it first! Think of a short, sweet sentence that I like to call your MOTIVATIONAL MANTRA. Here are a few examples to get you started: I choose to be energized. I breathe in calm, and exhale stress I am committed to having a wonderful day Choose one that resonates with you or change up the words to create your own. Write it on sticky notes and stick them on the top of your computer or bathroom mirror. Then read it or memorize it and say it out loud to yourself at least 6 times a day, every day, and see what happens.

How will this contribute to living a more balanced life?

Well, put it this way, water will not flow through a blocked pipe. Similarly, your energy or life force is not going to flow well if you’re all tensed up, agitated or on guard. So with step one, you’re learning to quiet your mind, calm your nervous system and save energy for you to use later when you really need it. And with step 2, you’ll be amazed at the results over time if you say your mantra over & over again. You’ll find that your mind will start to believe it and your body will follow.

Why? Because that’s the way our minds work.

Are there areas where your wheel is flat? Are these areas calling to be nourished?

They start to believe what we tell them to believe. It really is that simple.

Do you want to develop a deeper connection to yourself? Do you want to be challenged in new ways?

In my coaching practice, I use what’s called the wheel of life. It helps my clients identify which areas of their lives are out of balance. I’ve included a diagram of the wheel so that you can try it for yourself.

Do you want to build a better relationship to food? Do you want to be held accountable and show up for yourself?

Look at each section and place a dot on the line marking how satisfied you are with each area of your life. A dot nearer the center of the circle indicates dissatisfaction, while a dot placed towards the outside of the circle indicates ultimate happiness. When you have

placed a dot on each of the lines, connect the dots to see your wheel of life. Page 112 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

Step into Great Health Back to the Basics

Wellness Coach and Educator Page 115 E The Magazine for Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Female Executive

As a wellness coach and educator for over 15 years, I see people every day who are on a quest to maintain a healthy weight, improve their overall health and well-being and prevent and slow down the progression of degenerative diseases like heart disease, diabetes and cancer. The question is “where do you start”? We want to educate and empower our clients so that they will be able to heal themselves using complementary therapies and mind-body integration. We like to start with the basics… internal cleansing (detoxification) and nutrition. Detoxing involves reducing the intake of toxins and improving elimination through diet and body therapies such as colon hydrotherapy, infrared bodywraps, skin brushing, massages, saunas and when needed, detox supplements designed for specific organs. Chemicals, refined foods, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, and many drugs should be avoided to reduce the toxic load. Everyone can benefit from internal cleansing. Every day our bodies are exposed to toxins and pollutants in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat. When waste and toxins can be eliminated from the body, there is no problem. But when toxins build up faster than they can be eliminated or when the elimination systems are not performing, these toxins can accumulate and create dis-ease all over the body.

have the least resistance to the toxic waste material. It is also very important to listen to your body. We often ignore signs and symptoms when the body is giving us an indication that something is not quite right. For instance, feeling bloated is often a sign of a digestive issue. Chronic gas can be a symptom of an underlying digestive condition, like irritable bowel syndrome or lactose intolerance or it could be as simple as drinking with meals, or not chewing your foods thoroughly. There are a lot of ways to describe excessive gas: burping, belching, flatulence, and bloating. Bloating is used to describe the sensation of excess stomach gas that has not yet been released. A great majoritiy of our clients come to BodyClenz initially because of gas and bloating.

Colon hydrotherapy (aka colonics) is not a cure, but is a valuable therapy for a variety of colon issues, including reducing the

channels. When the elimination channels are overloaded, they become inefficient and congested. The toxins are forced into the bloodstream and settle into those organs and tissues which Page 117 E The Magazine for Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Female Executive

the old toxic mucus lining from the colon and flushing out excessive gas and waste, the number one source of disease in the body could be reduced. A more efficient means of waste elimination and nutrient absorption, both of which are essential to any lasting healing process, can be aided by colon hydrotherapy. Then the friendly bacteria will be produced to keep the colon safe from putrefaction and further autointoxication. Subscription link ETMMedia.net


Some possible signs of a toxic colon are: constipation, gas and bloating, coated tongue, bad breath, allergies, indigestion, backache, abnormal body odor, low energy dark circles under the eyes, cold hands and feet, blood pressure up and down, low sex drive, disturbed and restless sleep, menstrual problems, or swelling of legs. Many surgeons and physicians are beginning to understand the importance of bowel care in the prevention of disease.

THE NEXT STEP The most important way of strengthening your bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural defenses is to improve your diet and drink a sufficient amount of water. Eating a diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables has been linked to improved health, and for good reason. Veggies and fruits are loaded with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants, which have been shown to protect against chronic diseases.

Medical science has proven beyond a shadow of doubt that a diet rich in fruit and vegetables can improve your odds of avoiding diseases like that. There are at least nine different families of fruits and vegetables, each with potentially hundreds of different plant compounds that are beneficial to health. Eat a variety of types and colors of produce in order to give your body the mix of nutrients it needs. This not only ensures a greater diversity of beneficial plant chemicals but also creates eye-appealing meals.

The most important way of strengthening your body’s natural defenses is to improve your diet and drink a sufficient amount of water.

A diet rich in vegetables and fruits can lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, prevent some types of cancer, lower risk of eye and digestive problems, and have a positive effect upon blood sugar, which can help keep appetite in check. Eating non-starchy vegetables and fruits like apples, pears, and green leafy vegetables may even promote weight loss. Their low glycemic loads prevent blood sugar spikes that can increase hunger. Page 119 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

Leading health advocacy organizations like the National Cancer Institute and the American Heart Association all recommend eating 7 to 13 servings of fresh raw fruits and vegetables every day. Lately, I have been focusing more on my own diet and realized that my diet was not meeting that recommendation. A friend introduced me to a product called JuicePlus+. Juice Plus+ products are made from the juice powder concentrates and oils from more than 40 different fruits, vegetables and grains and comes in capsule, gummy or a powder form. While Juice Plus+ isn’t a substitute for eating fruits and vegetables, our whole food-based products support a healthy diet by offering a much wider variety of naturally occurring vitamins, along with antioxidants and phytonutrients found in fruits and vegetables. Every Juice Plus+ product is made from quality ingredients grown farm fresh, providing the natural nutrients your body needs. I recommend JuicePlus+ to anyone who will listen because it's such an easy way to make sure that they get more nutrition from fresh fruits and veggies into the diet every single day. Good health is the result of lots of things including a good diet, exercise and even getting a proper amount of sleep but Subscription link ETMMedia.net


one of the simplest things anyone can do is take 2 capsules in the morning and 2 capsules at night. You are improving your odds every time you do!

“Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.” – Amy Poehler

"None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful." – Mother Teresa The term “collaboration” has been bandied about in recent years. We know and have enough evidence to show that being a collaborative leader is a tremendous asset in balance. Women, who can retain this core ability while acting decisively to make things happen, have the skills and demeanor to thrive in the future. Are you one of them? Do you have the skills and demeanor to thrive as a collaborative leader? Numerous research studies show women are natural collaborators. We see it all the time: people helping each other to achieve what they seek to enrich their lives and of those around them. Page 124 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

or value as collaborative. Collaboration means working together to create something. The operative words are “create something together.” A number of years ago, Flynn Heath Holt Leadership (FHHL) hosted a seminar for 150 businesswomen. Many of the attendees already held senior leadership positions in large companies, while others had been come to terms with their ambition. These women cited their indecisive perspective primarily on their strong preference to collaborate and cooperate rather than brazenly be in charge. Subscription link etmmedia.net


Do Not Wait for Leaders; do it alone, person to person”

-Mother Teresa

The research from the seminar noted that exceptional collaborative women, have a talent for establishing buy-in. Collaborative leadership is the wave of the future. However, the problem is there can be an overemphasis on consensus, which can be viewed as weak, thus creating scenarios when collaboration has been ineffective. Examples include asking for permission, appearing indecisive and failing to assert a strong point of view. Page 125 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

According to an article written by Laura Henderson and Sharon Hadary, founder and former executive director of the Center for Women's Business Research, “How Women Lead: It’s All About Creating A Culture Of Collaboration,” women have a terrific advantage for team building because women’s leadership styles are collaborative, inclusive, and consultative. They further explain that women gain commitment by enrolling team members in achieving a common vision, actively soliciting and listening to employees’ ideas, and creating a culture focused on ethics, quality and concern for the individual. “Women leaders recognize that people want to be intellectually stimulated and energized by their environment, to know they are making a valuable contribution, and to be recognized for their performance, so they operate with collaboration, not command. The leader’s job is to get everyone enrolled in their vision so that it becomes a shared driving force. Every team member has to be committed to the overall organizational goals rather than to departmental or individual group goals.” Subscription link ETMMedia.net


The leader’s job is to get everyone enrolled in their vision so that it becomes a shared driving force. Judy Robinson says, “Outsiders have the perception that since there is a clear chain of command in the Army, you can just give orders and people will obey you. Command has given way to collaboration in every modern organization.” Judy Robinson goes on to say, “that while you may get action by giving orders, you are getting obedience, not a sense of achieving goals that make a difference. If that’s how you try to lead, you don’t get anybody anywhere. You need to explain to your team why the goal is important. You have to make it a team effort and value what everyone does.” “Having shared vision and goals really helps create a culture of success,” says Page 126 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

Maria Coyne, Executive Vice President, Consumer and Small Business Segment Head, KeyBank, member Executive Council, KeyCorp. “Part of a culture of success is that you all want to achieve the mission, and working together, you have fun in the process. It doesn’t imply that you are just working insane hours — although that happens sometimes — but that you are balanced and having fun and focusing on the right things. Success creates success.” “Making the work meaningful to them is one of the most important ways to engage people in their work. Take the time to ensure that your team members understand the importance of the work they are doing, how it will be used, and how it will contribute to the success of the company and the client. .” Subscription link etmmedia.net


When your team has done a good job, let them know. Take the time to celebrate the team’s progress and success and to recognize individual performance. Teams that believe their work will make a difference are more enthusiastic about their work and work harder to achieve the goal. Making sure employees know they are appreciated is a necessary and rewarding business strategy. Recognize and reward success. When your team has done a good job, let them know. Take the time to celebrate the team’s progress and success and to recognize individual performance.” Anne Stevens, Chairman, CEO, and Principal at SA IT Services, characterizes her leadership style as “push, push, hug.” She says you must set goals that stretch people and be explicit about your Page 127 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

expectations. However, “you can’t push without a hug,” says Anne. There has to be a balance. If you do either one without the other, you will be ineffective. “It’s setting objectives, and then at the end of the day, recognizing the humanity in all of us.” “In addition to believing that the organizational vision is worth pursuing, employees must perceive that in achieving the organization’s goals, they also will be successful in achieving their own personal and professional goals. Take the time to understand what success means to your team members and how you can help them achieve it. Subscription link ETMMedia.net


The most successful leaders help people recognize their individual strengths. Give them opportunities to use those strengths and build new ones. Employees want to feel they are making progress, doing work that is meaningful both to them and to the organization. Reinforce employees’ confidence in their skills by putting them in situations where they can perform successfully and be recognized.” Gina O’Reilly, COO at Nitro, in her article, “United We Stand: Why Women And Men Need To Collaborate For Success,” for Fast Company shares, “we need to stop taking sides in the gender debate if we want to work together equally.” She goes on to say, “Rather than engage in divisive tactics, isolate ourselves at female-only events, or openly complain about an issue that needs to be addressed, we can all practice what I call complementary collaboration: simply recognizing, respecting, and embracing the fact that men and women bring different but often hugely complementary skills to the table that, if nurtured and developed, can be a very powerful and highly successful combination for any business. It’s worth emphasizing this isn’t just a “feel good” thing. Businesses should

It’s important for women to ha examine the issue pragmatically to fully recognize the significant impact women can have on a company’s bottom line. Not only do women bring unique talents and complementary skills to the boardroom (and every other position for that matter), we hold tremendous purchasing power. Today, women make or influence a staggering 85% of all consumer purchases across all categories. Considering the influence and importance women have in the purchasing process, their perspective should be more than just nice to have for companies that want to tap into a market’s full potential.

people wrongly assume you need a tough-as-nails attitude to succeed, especially in male-dominated environments. However, a lack of sincerity can be felt a mile away and only perpetuates the problem, so it’s best to choose the authentic route and just be yourself. You’ll be surprised how much more receptive others are as a result.

2. Embrace and Play To Your Strengths According to Google, women-led tech companies achieve 35% higher return on investment, and when backed by venture capital, deliver 12% more revenue than their male counterparts. Most women, irrespective of their position, bring a high level of perceptiveness and emotional IQ that’s critical for leading teams and growing a business. So, rather than worrying about the skills they lack, women should recognize their talents and double down on them, while men can help ensure more women are part of the mix from the onset for optimal business success.

ave each other’s backs who recognize the power of understanding their entire customer base and work diligently to listen and make women’s voices heard, come out on top. So, what can we all do to help correct the gender imbalance for current and future generations? Here are a few simple tips to help drive complementary collaboration:

3. Support One Another

1. Be Authentic Women and men often feel they have to act a certain way in the workplace in order to be successful. This is particularly common in female leadership roles where Page 129 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

It’s important for women to have each other’s backs and foster a supportive, positive work environment. Try to make an effort to connect with other women in your company and industry by attending networking and skill Subscription link ETMMedia.net


development events or by organizing casual meet-ups. Include men in some of these activities as well.

4. Introduce and Lead Change

Merely complaining about something you could absolutely play a hand in changing, or at least improving, isn’t helpful. Instead, take the bull by the horns and pave the way for change. Women are natural born leaders, and the “matriarch mentality” can be a strong positive force within any business.

As women, we have a responsibility to help other women succeed so we can all play our part, no matter how small.

The key is to have both men and women align behind this mindset and drive change collectively. In this vein, let’s move past all the talk about whether Sheryl Sandberg, an American technology executive, activist, and author who serves as the chief operating officer (COO) of Facebook and founder of Leanin.org (also known as the Lean In Foundation), is in touch with the realities of average women and instead celebrate her efforts to raise awareness for the issues we face. Collectively, we can make a difference. We can do so much more to lead by example and help foster complementary collaboration and a greater balance between men and women in the workplace. As women, we have Page 130 E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive

a responsibility to help other women succeed so we can all play our part, no matter how small.

Men share the same responsibility. To those men who have worked with great women and recognized firsthand what we bring to the table, spread the word!” While these steps can help women battle the discrimination they encounter in the workplace, fixing this problem relies on all men and women. We all want to believe in a world where hard work pays off. However, as long as women fail to receive full credit for their contributions, they’ll remain stuck on the sidelines while men continue to reap the benefits of collaborative success.

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!

Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare. In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms.

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:// lifespowerstore.com/ 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.
