D is for Dream. What is your dream, goals or what have you achieved?

My dream is to be happy making a difference in the lives of the people I meet, live with and work with. I learned early on that I could do this by using the gift of good communication, etiquette, kindness and spirituality used in an open way for the world to see not just hear.

E is for Encourage. What encourages you?

People doing small kindnesses, people trying to be better at anything they do, particularly in their people relationships, people who love what they do and are proud to do it well, regardless of what it is they are doing. When I witness this or hear about this I am encouraged to do the same and pass on what I witnessed to others who may need encouragement too.

MOcoverR is for Resource. What resources do you bring to the table that makes you unique or stand out?

I have very basic and simple resources.  I use my ability to connect people with other people. Faith Popcorn coined a person who does this as a “CLICKER”. I am a clicker and love to talk to people and learn what makes them tick, what they may need to help them in the future and then I connect them to someone that could help them….even in a small way by enriching their life by just knowing this person. In kind, I encourage then to do the same and so on and so on and so on.

R is for Ready. When did you realize you were ready for what you are doing now?

I did not know I was ready! I did not even think about if I was ready. I just tried it, it worked, I loved it and I try to keep reinventing what I do, to make it fresh and new every single day. So far it works.

I is for Individual. Name at least one person that you know that you feel others should learn about and why?

Thomas Jefferson. He was a forward thinker, a wise man, insightful and he help our country and this world so very much in so many many ways. People should read about Thomas Jefferson to learn about his thinking and why he thought the way he did and to get his perspective that is appropriate even today.

C is for Continue. When you fail, things look bleak or are not optimistic what makes you want to continue?

My attitude has always been, never give up.  Many people say to me, when a hundred others would give up, I do not. Please know that I do not let patience become neglect by sticking with something. I know that when I start something valuable enough for me to start, that I will see it through. I believe that most people give up sooner than they should on most things in life. Personally I love the challenge of something difficult… it inspires me to be better by achieving it because it may be difficult.

K is for Key. What keys to success can you leave for upcoming entrepreneurs and leaders?

Work hard, don’t complain, don’t think anyone owes you anything, they do not. Surround yourself with winners, hard workers and people who want to learn. Surround yourself with people you can learn from, and learn. Ask questions, listen well, take notes if you do not have a good memory. Set goals, ask others what theirs are. Be curious beyond belief. Read, Eat right, sleep enough and exercise daily…REALLY!

Is there anything that we did not touch on that you would like to inspire others with?

Be open minded, talk to folks that are of different thinking then you. Remember, set an example that you would want for your self and your children.  Our future depends on it.

Make Them CLAP

September 25, 2011

Rakim said it best in whatever you are doing you have to Make Them CLAP.

C is for Connect. When you take time to get to know someone they will open their window to see who you are and open their door to build a relationship. Instead of finding reasons to dislike someone look for things that you all have in common.

L is for Learn. The more you connect with others the more you can learn from them and the more they can learn from you. Be the one that will teach those that others won’t even try to reach.

A is for Action. Provide an example so others can see what excellence looks like and how their life can truly be. In order to move in any direction you have to get up get out and get something.

P is for Prosper. Fruit falls right next to the tree. If you Connect, Learn and take appropriate Actions there will no doubt be Prosperity in your life. When you CLAP not only will they congratulate you but you will receive a standing ovation.
