Smart Conversations with Smart Women: Victoria Schade - Author Speaker Dog Trainer

Smart Conversations with Smart Women:  Victoria Schade - Author Speaker Dog Trainer

I have to say this conversation was full of the kind of energy and learning we should each enjoy, every morning of our lives. I can tell you, re-watching the conversation brought smooth beams of warm sunlight into my office.

Part of the joy was in the topic of conversation - dogs. I could talk about dogs (and cats and gerbils and guinea pigs, etc) all day. Life is just better with pets.

Conversations with Smart Women:  Hollie Clere - The Social Media Advisor

One of the best parts of this conversation is when Hollie says, “Magic happens.”

We talk about magic here at Nurturing Big Ideas. I believe in your talents and magic. Having Hollie say those words, unbidden by me, made my heart soar. You’ll have to watch to discover why she said them, and what she means by them.

This Smart Woman Conversation is fully focused on ladies who are in the entrepreneurial mindset. But, it’s also a conversation for all women. Shawna mentions the way we are all “uniquely, wonderfully us!”

Having known Shawna for more than 10 years now, and so proud to say I was the 2015 Woman of the Year in the Women in the Pet Industry Network, I am more than proud and delighted to share this great time, all 21 minutes or so of it.

Big Ideas in Books: essentialism by Greg McKeown

Big Ideas in Books: essentialism by Greg McKeown

I can tell you that many New York Times bestsellers are not best sellers. At least, I doubt that they have sold the requisite number of copies. Maybe so. Maybe I am being petulant about it. I can just share that I’ve read some NY Times bestsellers that were pretty unimpressive.

On to Big Ideas in Books where we will discuss essentialism by Greg McKeowan. The title is not a typo, he spells it with a lower case ‘e’. Shades of e.e. cummings? Perhaps. I am not privy to the reason behind the spelling.

But there’s more. Much more.

If you take nothing else from that blurb, take the words “profound” and “heart-centered” because that’s exactly what you find in this book.

It’s a book of stories. A book of emotions. A book of successes that were hard-won. It’s about women everywhere. I think, perhaps, it’s about me. And about you.

Big Ideas In Books: A Book Review Series  #3 Inventing Joy by Joy Mangano

This Big Ideas in Books review for this week focuses on being ‘defiant’ because that’s what Joy Mangano of Miracle Mop fame tells us to do. Be Defiant!

You’ve heard me say, more times than I can count. on my blogs or in more interviews than I can count, that being wayward and determined is a POSITIVE way to be, but I never told you to be defiant.
