The Other Sister

There is a third Sister.........she lives way down south in sunny Florida!
I had the chance to visit our sister, Lisa this week on a business trip to Orlando. We spent two days yapping, laughing and having sister fun. (She never had a pedicure! I fixed that and made her promise to treat herself once a month!)
My visit reminded me how important it is to nurture family relationships. We are all busy with careers, children, homes and spouses..........call, e-mail, write or visit your sister. Sisters are forever friends! -Monica

An Act of Kindness

I am continually amazed when a blessing is bestowed upon me in this hectic life! I received this beautiful artwork print from a wonderful person who heard a keynote address I made at a business conference. His enclosed note read: "What a pleasure to meet you and hear you talk. I saw this print and thought of you and your journey in life. Gathering roots is a traditional way of life for the first people. So your journey to heal your son has led you to find and gather herbs of the earth; you return to the ways of our ancestors. A parent seeking healing for a child and the earth answers and heals us all, soothing our bodies and reminding us who we really are."
This act of kindness reminds me that I am exactly where I need to be: Honoring my purpose and path in life. When the days get long and the work load is full, a thoughtful gesture restores me. We are all connected. I am grateful. -Monica

She's a Superwoman

My sister, Marina, is a mother, wife, entrepreneur and adult college student! This spring she started an accelerated program in Organizational Management at a local university. Essentially, four years of courses are crammed into 18 months!
On a recent business trip she told me, "I make sure the kids are fed and the laundry is done. Beyond that, I just can't be concerned right now." I love that ability to let go and be honest. Guilt free and focused! My sister is investing in a goal that will enrich her life. She is truly an inspiration to me! To quote the beautiful Alicia Keys:
Even when I'm a mess
I still put on a vest
With an S on my chest
Oh yes I'm a Superwoman
You go girl!

A Shout Out from Key West

Hello ladies. Today I received my second shipment from you two, and I have to tell you what a miracle Kevin's Cure Lotion has been for me! I've had eczema for 11 years on my hands and feet, ever since I've been a full time bartender. I've tried all the lotions along with my meds, but yours has truly been the best. A doctor recommended Cingulair, the allergy pills, and they helped the first 6 months, but I haven't needed to take one since using Kevin's Cure. I'm hoping to even cut back on the medicated lotions in the near future. Just had to let you know and I'm spreading the word down here in Key West! Ironically, my husband's name is Kevin :) From: D.D. Key West, Florida.
We love it when someone takes the time to share good words of encouragement. It is a blessing to know our products are making a difference! Thank you! BTW we love the picture of you and Kevin in paradise.

Suit Up. Smile. Network.

We just returned from the 14th Annual Oklahoma Indian Gaming Conference and Trade Show in Oklahoma City.
Successful business owners will tell you over and over "it's not what you know, but who you know."
Building business relationships with industry professionals keeps us in the know about hotel, spa and casino projects where our products and services may be needed. In a competitive business environment, look for opportunity. Network. Ask questions. Be seen. Never run out of business cards. You won't know what is on the horizon if you don't get out there and mingle! Join a business network group or your local chamber. Most people are willing to share, help and make introductions. Simply ask.
We are pictured here with our dear friend and fellow entrepreneur, Walt Lamar. Walt is a networking guru. How he remembers each and every name is a mystery to me!
