April Fools!

shocking!April fools! Did you get anything that shocked your system???

We received a big shock when our mechanic told us that our truck was only going to last us a couple more months!! eeek! Nope, it was not an April fools praink, wish it were though. The positive side is we get to shop for a newer truck.


Get into action and moving toward your goals!

April started out by going to Vancouver for our quarterly Pro Coach meeting with Andrew Barber- Starkey. Pro Coach is a great system that helps you get into action and moving forward on completing your goals. The topic of this session for our "quarterly success factor" was how to "Follow Your Natural gifts. To identify these, you begin this journey by answering the following questions:

  • What are you good at?
  • What do you enjoy?
  • What makes your heart sing?

By following Andrew's system, we can find out what our gifts are and discover how we can spend more time doing them.

The key thing I learned is that highly successful people spend most of their time doing work they enjoy. To implement this kind of thinking, ask yourself: What actions must I take now to take advantage of my Natural Gifts?

Discovering Your Natural Gifts

Reflecting on the following is the first step to help you discover your Natural Gifts.

  • Passion: What are the things in your life that makes your heart sing?
  • Talent: What are the talents you have naturally or have spent time perfecting?
  • Radiance: What activities do you feel so good doing that you radiate positive energy while doing them?
  • Longevity: What can you do for long periods of time without getting bored?
  • Effortless: What is it that you do that flows effortlessly and comes easily to you.
  • Unlimited Potential:What do you do that you have limitless potential at how well you can do the activity?

Easter Inventory Weekend

warehouse workersIf you're curious how we spent our Easter weekend, read on!

We spent three days counting everything for a pre-inventory audit as our year end is coming up.

We have been noticing our inventory numbers were not matching up with what was on hand. So our consultant suggested we start with a good inventory. Then we began the process of determining how how we can put some systems in place to control our shrinkage and manage our store more closely.

Working With the Law

If you want to learn more about the other laws of the universe and how to use them, check out "Working with the Law." There are many universal laws I never knew existed; and yet, they are working all the time, whether we are aware of them or not.

The biggest lesson for us is that we need to be aware of the laws and deliberately create our life on purpose, not by default.

Our Bookshelf!

We've added "Working With the Law" to our favorite books shelf. To see all the books on the shelf, Check out our new bookshelf at Amazon (this will open in a new tab of your browser.)

Month End Journey

Shelley is headed to Los Angeles at the end of the month Venice Beachand spending some quality time with our new IT, strategic planning, virtual assistant and all-around jack of all trades girl.

Finding her through CEO Space has been a godsend as she goes hand in hand with our Pro Coach system in keeping us accountable and on track.

As we keep in mind our goals and what it is we want to accomplish, don't be afraid to ask the universe for help to assist you! When you ask, you'll find there is help beyond your wildest dreams! Till next month...

Live, Love, and Laugh!
