The Conslutant – no thats NOT a typo

No that’s not a typo. It’s my extreme effort to get you to pick ONE Thing
when starting your freelance work in fitness, health and wellness and not to be like I was.
Now understand this – I am speaking about me in this post… NOT you.  If you can relate to my uncalculated risks and reckless adventures, great, I hope you get a take away… but remember I am writing about me.

 

This metaphor about The Conslutant…appeals to the side of desperation and low-level tactics I used to get paid and more.

You need to acknowledge, identify and if possible avoid this behavior.  It’s also me trying to get you to join our Recycled Nurse Movement (opt-in) and start recycling your life skills for extra money/freelance work and start out right, “Start out how you want to end up!” (As my Nana always said)

So, let’s begin my plight (Even though this is real, it’s o.k. to laugh. Actually I hope you do)…

 

That’s who I was… a Conslutant. Not a ConSULTant… A ConSLUTant.

Don’t be like me.  Don’t do what I did,

 

I was a whore.

 

A whore will repeatedly do anything for money.

 

This is what I did…

  • Let’s get this right off the table – I was a “certification whore”.  If you are starting to feel a bit of offense coming up in you – just know, I would get certified from the back of a cereal box, if needed, back in the day (the 80’s) – You may never do that… therefore you’re probably not a “certification whore” like me… so rest assured and enjoy my plight…At one point, I had about 8 fitness certifications and maybe 3 in nursing.  From back of magazine to weekend programs to online programs and all kinds of schools.  I recognize the importance of “knowing your shit” and having a validation.

    Hell, I used to teach travel on weekends (Friday-Sunday), certifying personal trainers, so I can appreciate accomplishing something… but I was a whore with it.

    Today guess how many I have?
    None. Nada. Zero.

    Do I still have that knowledge?  Of course I do. But I didn’t need so many.  Obtaining some of them caused unwanted stress and grief with my health and in personal relationships too.

    You know if you might be going down this garden path to getting certified in everything when – someone you used to know and hasn’t seen you for a while – asks you,
    “You do what again?”
    and you freeze and “pick one” of you “certs” in your mind.
    Then blurt out something that sounds questionable.  Like a fusion of 2 or more certs, “I’m a ‘doula-Yoga-lates Instructor Coach’ and I supervise in the ER , sometimes”. Then you try to explain yourself.This sounds painful doesn’t it?  I know because I used to do this.
    Does this happen to you, ever?  No?
    Well, like I said, this is about me.

  • I’d chase people and even wait for prospects on the street or parking lot and approach them with an offer.  When they refused, I’d lower my price and my morals and offer another trick.
  • I’d have 7 or more different business cards at one time; one for every position/fantasy title I could be or do.  It was like a was some sort of Secret or Double Agent.
    Someone would ask me in an elevator, at a conference, “So, who are you?”  I would answer, “So who do you want me to be?”
    OR “So, what do you do?” and I would answer, “I’m a conslutant, what are you looking for? I can do it all.”
  • When asked how much were my conslutant services, I would say, I charge by the hour.  But I also do 1/2 hour rates.
    If the prospect showed less interest than I hoped, I’d suddenly have a one-time-only special offer and say “I have a special and I can charge by the 1/4 hour. Everybody has 15 minutes, right?”.
    If I didn’t hear from the prospect in a day, I would call them and say,
    “I do group rates too… yes, group rates for a 1/4 hour and yes, I can come there on a Friday afternoon on the weekend of the 4th of July”.
    (sound like a whore yet?)
  • I’d respond back to everybody and anybody who showed me any interest at all.  This could be on social media and on phone calls. I pre-qualified no one.  Basically you just had to be human and able to “possibly” pay.  ‘Cause many times I didn’t get paid.
  • I’d go to networking events and fling my business cards at anyone within 4 feet of me.
  • On the computer, I’d see someone had an idea that brought them in money, I’d buy it and then copy it… my attempts to replicate their success was demoralizing.  I did all this work to be like someone else and I never got a call back. (womp, womp)
  • Over the years, I’d offer every service/program ever thought of in fitness & health for everybody and anybody.  I learned that from the hospital health resource department that I worked for.  I offered a hundred choices for their (the community’s) selection.
  • Here’s an example below of a hospital health resource dept. nutrition programs. We did health education programs in the community. I worked for them and got a lot of whore training here, about 13 years worth.  This was just the nutrition programs! The fitness programs were just as extensive.
An extensive list of topics. No USP here.  If you had to pick one which one would you pick?

An extensive list of topics. No USP here. If you had to pick one which one would you pick?

 

 

This list serves absolutely everybody… and some animals and space aliens.

 

Remember hospitals have large marketing budgets.  You and I don’t.  It is foolish to think you can serve what a large hospital system can, even if you have the “knowledge” in all of those topics.

 

One of the biggest mistakes I see nurses who want to do freelance work in fitness/health make is they want to work with anybody which is everybody.

 

For example I just got an email the other day from a nurse, with a great history of skills and experience, said she wanted to do fitness and health improvement work with pre-teens, busy moms and some men.  That’s just about everybody right?  How do you find these people and position yourself around that market? How can you provide a ass-kicking result with very different wants and needs of these 3 groups?
I don’t even want to discuss the broadness of “fitness” and “health improvement”.  In here defense she didn’t speak to me.  But I can almost tell by that she wrote, she’ headed down that road of “slutdom” in her marketing efforts and getting attention.

 

I know it’s challenging because I did the same thing.  That’s what got me started down the road of becoming a slut.  A Conslutant. Being all things to all people. Before ‘Minky’, “cheap & easy” were my middle name.

 

I’m sure many of you are quite well versed in many topics in fitness, health and wellness. If you don’t learn to become the best in one area and position yourself to those people in that area, that expertise you have, will get “lost in the sauce”.

 

Recycling skills and life experiences take time.  First decide. Then try very hard to focus on what you want to accomplish.
Creating a freelance project may help you accomplish that. Finding your why, who, what and how to position yourself and find your distinction is what I wish I had done first.
This is your USP. (Unique Selling Proposition)
You can’t be authentic and confident in what you do without it. You can’t build a brand without it.

 

Without USP – You can’t answer the “How” in these very important questions for you – “What is your immediate goal?  To make money or to get visibility?” They may crossover down the road, but they are different when you start creating your freelance work project and in your day-to-day actions.

 

Early on, I combined both, a mistake.
I ended up being “visible at the moment” and made some cash, then “poof” I was invisible again. Nobody wants to be associated with a networking desperado doing the “walk of shame” afterwards.

 

Even though it may take time, don’t do what I did and spend years “busting your ass” solving “everybody’s” problem that they didn’t know they had.

 

When your ready to join and recycle yourself, let me know,

Jelly Legs and My Beats Headphones

Here’s the summation of it all:

  1. Jelly Legs almost got me in trouble with an escalator.
  2. Jelly legs need to be experienced at least twice a week for best results
  3. Lovin’ my new Beats Headphones pushed me into “jelly legs” without any grief or pain (so that’s means I didn’t really notice)
  4. Leg exercises you should never do if you have a butt that’s too big and thick thighs that you want to trim down
  5. Try “adding” something instead of taking something away

===========================================
Here are the details…

If you don’t know what “jelly legs” are here’s what I’m referring to –

 

You’ve worked out (your legs) to that point (for you) that they are only moving you forward because of previous years walking since about 2 years old.
They feel, well…
like jelly.

 

I wondered how I would put in my clutch and drive – then I turned the corner of the gym and saw this… an escalator.

It wasn’t so much that the escalator was so high… it was working… it was “stepping onto the escalator” without ending up like Will Ferrell on “Elf” or falling on my face.

I could see the yellow lines on where the steps separated, but my foot just wouldn’t move correctly, like my mind wanted it to.  This is Fatigue for real. Not too much blood to the brain – Otherwise known as “muscle head”.

Then the next yellow line would come… I had my bifocals on, so the moving stairs were close then they were far, then blurry.

 

Just when I got a clear 3-second focus, I’d try to step down but the separating stairs would be in the middle of my foot and , I just couldn’t put my foot down where the step was separating, this went on for (what felt like 30 minutes) but it was only about 20 seconds, me standing one leg trying to get on… I needed serious mental concentration that just wasn’t there anymore.

 

I had to dig deep to step up onto this escalator… finally, I prevailed. I was on with first foot firmly planted (dropped down) and second one followed along nicely.  I was proud of myself. I will never (in my mind) rush another senior citizen again!

 

I had “jelly legs”. If you don’t know what I’m talking about just work one body part with a knowledgeable fitness professional and that body part will feel like jelly during and after the workout… but it’s really tightening up your shit.

 

You MUST experience “jelly legs” in your workouts at some point if you want lasting change and stay trimmer longer.  Twice a week will do, if you do it right. But I was getting distracted, watching people, watching people work out… incorrectly, you know… Those “other people” who don’t know what they are doing, but you do.  I feel you, ’cause I feel the same way.
So I decided to try listening to something while I exercised.  I listened to things like various trainings, performances, “books on tape” and of course music, podcasts, Mp3 downloads, etc.  What an experience I’ve been having lately.
My son just delivered his Christmas present to me:

For Minky!

Maybe it’s the noise-cancelling feature, but I got lost in my workout (in a good way) while listening through my new Beats headphones. I started remembering “why” I used to work out for all those years after being athlete…
I like to feel like I’m doing something for the “self-preservation of my body and mind”. It makes me feel for all the damage I’ve done to my body over the years – I can still feel this good through this movement I do. It’s really all I know.

 

So, of course PangPang wanted to try them out too.

 

For PangPang!

Blue Tooth technology – a “first” for me.  I know I’m trying to catch up as best I can.  Nice to have no wires!  I got carried away when working out during the exercises I do. My legs felt really like “jelly” after this particular workout, and what was the difference?

 

Beats Headphones? Maybe. I think so.

 

The sound was good; I pushed myself harder during the workout because where the sound took me.

 

I liked the whole “feel” of wearing them too.  They even kept my ears warm on those blustery walks on the boardwalk with PangPang.  So, now I’ll wear them every time I go… get better results and be happier, feel better. For me having an accessory made me work harder and follow through… I liked it.

 

What small change or “add” can you do, that becomes part of a ritual and makes it easier to make that change you want or what your client wants? It’s a becomes a better experience for you.

 

When you add one thing you seem to like it makes the change easier. I don’t do a lot of exercises (When I go to the gym I use the Gravitron, some cables & mostly a 30-min. circuit with 30 sec. per exercise stations) and it takes me at least 3 days to recover.

 

I add my smaller ritual GPPG exercises between going to the gym.

 

What are GPPG exercises?* It stands for Get up. Pee. Pajamas. Go.
They are part of smaller exercise rituals I do and it involves 30 seconds. I talk about it more in my “Anti-Bully” Workout. (Which is NOT for children.) This is for Nurses who want to serve up some sweet revenge and have a delightful experience by the feeling the transformation and validating yourselves with your results.
I am currently doing the “Anti-Bully” Workout* (this one is for Nurses who want to fight back and improve their situation) This workout is designed to trim my bulky thighs and buttocks – I don’t want the Nicki Minaj, Kim Kardashian look at my age.  At this age that would equal diabetes, high blood pressure and not being able to stand up.

 

The workout involves kicking, punching, straight leg exercises and exercising your voice in your own way and it’s also a short workout.

 

Because of my muscle type, I don’t need more muscle under my layer of fat.
So I don’t do too much squatting, lungeing, never step aerobics or any exercise that involves simultaneous hip and knee flexion. Because my legs will get huge.

 

Is that what you want?

 

I just want to trim down and zip my pants… you know what I mean?

 

Some of you have worked out hard and you’ve experienced jelly legs.  But for me – Jelly legs does NOT equal a bunch of squats, lunges, step classes, crash fit, Tabata – it equals working your legs in a way to whatever it takes to get to “jelly”.  You’ll know it when you’re there.

 

By the way if you do that stuff… good for you… my body can’t and won’t handle  it.

 

Also, for me, I need to do it with Beats Headphones in a gym 2-3 days a week, and I supplement (add) that effort with several exercise rituals that are for 30 seconds – done within my normal morning and evening rituals.

 

(You have a ritual, if you think about it.. yes, you do… are you thinking, “my ritual is chaos”?) Yet, chaos has repetitive moments.

 

If you want to*  try this or you already exercise, take heed or as a reminder:

 

You WILL be sore the next and the next day, so expect it.

 

I expect it.
That’s why I need 3-4 days to recover.
Don’t live at the gym or exercise like a nut, like I used to.  It really isn’t good for you.
It’s excellent for you if you rest, exercise, eat.  In that order.

Fear and Starting Over

Fear.

It’s a feeling that most people try to conquer or beat.

I think that’s wasted energy and will leave you feeling baffled, confused and unfulfilled.

Why?

Because Fear can’t be erased.  It doesn’t go away.  It simply changes it’s face… like a chameleon.

One day or moment it’s there while you’re standing up to your boss; the next day or moment it’s there again right before you start skiing down the intermediate slope for the first time.

So when I hear people say the word “fearless”, it deflates me a bit.  Because I don’t believe them.

It’s like when people put on seminars and programs about being “stress less and stress free”.

The only time I know when you are “stress free” is when you’re dead.

I believe it’s more effective to face your fear on a regular basis, recognize it, acknowledge it and keep moving.

Fear begins to lose its luster… but it doesn’t ever completely go away.

So, to me, “FEARLESS” is a what I call “cheerleader word”.

No substance to it… but it sounds good in a sound bite or a cheer.

PangPang is showing his fear below:

His face is priceless.  It’s like, “Keep that crazy exercising Santa away from me!”

He’s afraid to make any sudden moves and didn’t want to be in there by himself when I got up.

We all want to feel comfortable.  We all have our “security blankets” too.

My security blanket was my list of almost 3,000 nurses interested at some point in fitness & nursing.

Now, believe it or not, 3,000 names on an e-mail list is not that many.  But I didn’t do any formal marketing,

no actively plugging on Facebook or other social media, no cold mailings, most nurses simply found me on Google.

So I thought and had confidence and faith in there being “a need” or even “a want” by nurses to become fitness nurses.

I was only partly right.

Since 2007, I’ve seen the same pattern of nurses who found me, they:

  1. Had an idea of what they wanted to do, but it stopped there
  2. Wanted to get “certified” in many things
  3. Did nothing or very little with any information/certification (this is not unique to fitness nursing)

Some of you may be thinking that if the certification was crap… what should I expect?

I expect you to understand that it’s not the certification that makes you successful.
(Just so you know, I have 2 college degrees and at one time I had 7 certifications, so I was like you too!)

Today ALL of my certifications have expired, because I know you can’t take away what I know from

the past and continue to learn from those before me in how to get clients and get paid in the business of freelance work that I do – in the area I know best.

I see it in many areas of nurses in business.  They get “certified” as something and it could have been approved for nursing education credits through an accreditated organization that can supply the nursing credits – BUT- (not an accreditated program though, so be careful if that’s what you’re after, they are not the same thing. Getting these credits/contact hours are no different than getting them from a nursing magazine.)

Some nurses actually get the Board Certification (BC) from a bonafide nursing body – BUT in business, these nurses are still struggling… they have no or very few clients or are begging or chasing the wrong potential clients. Why?

Because, in my opinion, because of all the “extra” book training, they must justify that training, and they simply refuse to believe they need help making money. They have no lead generation marketing and sales skills and feel that if they throw up their idea on Facebook that will be enough.

Well, if people can go to You-Tube or Doctor Oz and get something similar to what you are offering or want to offer in fitness, health & wellness (and you have no point of view or personality)… why would they pay for what you have?  Ouch, I know.

In you want to be in business, stop getting initials, get clear on your value and distinction and start learning and doing hardcore

sales training from others, outside of nursing, and remember some of the best trainers have no formal degrees. (There are a lot of broke MBA’s out there or are doing something they hate.

 

Action and skill TRUMP cert/degree and passion when it comes to working for yourself every time.

This is another fear because actually getting certifications is not that scary, may be hard, but not as scary as cold calling or not paying your bills or wondering what other people will think of you if you fail at going out on your own… That’s scarier.  That creates fear.

So, I was having such a hard time letting go of what I wanted to do.  I had fear.  My income was erratic and

I found out the hard way… most nurses (my original audience) are not entrepreneurs nor risk takers… which is o.k.

You are who you are regardless of how you put food on your table.

For the business that I was in, I had the wrong audience. I needed to change and further define that audience.

I didn’t want to believe that even though I felt it. I just kept changing my act instead.

I finally listened to a mentor of mine, the great Lisa Sasevich,

“Lori, don’t change your act… change your audience”

I was afraid and I even gave warnings that I would not send any more e-mails to that original fitness nursing list.

Only a dismal response about 30 people out of about 3,000 opened the last email I sent.

They had enough of me already.

Time to face my fear, get rid of my “3,000 list security blanket” and start over.

PangPang has his own “security blanket too:

PangPang & his security blanket!

It’s his pug pillow friend and the warm radiator in 7 degree temps here at the Jersey Shore.

My new “security blanket” is now knowing I can be authentic and start writing exciting copy and comedy again.

I’m free of trying to “force” something on people who don’t want it, aren’t ready for it, they only want to get certified and have more initials or they were just curious.

I was trying to solve a problem that these nurses didn’t know existed yet, because they were not ever going

to take the risk. It could’ve been anything, not just fitness nursing.

I went about it all wrong.

Information overload is gone.  I simply can help you with one strategy – deciding if you want to do some freelance work and finding your USP related to fitness, health and wellness.  That’s it.

I now know certain nurses will find me when I talk to my truth.  It will either resonate with you or it won’t.

So now I have started my email list again with 78 nurses so far who are interested in FreelanceNursePros.com and want to recycle their skills and life experience and make money doing freelance work that they love.

I help you do this by discovering your USP (Unique Selling Proposition) or positioning of your value, your distinction.

Most nurses who want to do some work for themselves are not “Entrepreneurs”.  That’s too grandiose.

You simply want to know how to package and describe your value.  Once this is discovered, you can make

much better decisions in how you want to move forward and if you want to move forward at all.

Today, my purpose is to provide you with a delightful experience, I don’t necessarily want to solve your problems.  So, if you’re sitting back watching, that’s fine…

Watch me use my USP and promote my transformational and directional info-product, “Start Out How You Want To End Up!” featuring:

The “Anti-Bully” Workout (for Nurses).  From product to speaking/webinars to private mentoring.

It’s all freelance work. And it won’t be for a pence.

You can do something similar too.  If you want to solve a specific problem… that’s great for you.  I encourage you to

know that and do that.  I just have another perspective about my service offer than you.

Start over with me and find your new security blanket.  Find your USP and and feel what it does for you.

It should excite you, create a hunger within you and makes you get up everyday wanting to fulfill it.

If you’re not feeling that way today, then you’re not doing you.  You’re not being you…

See you next time,

Minky

P.S. One more thing about fear – it’s NOT FEAR but it’s ANGER that we should work through
or should get help for.

After all, we are all angry about something; some of us are just at higher levels than others.

And fear is a way to disguise our anger and deny our anger.  We easily say “I’m afraid”.

Not me anymore, well, not as much anymore, I accept fear… I am actually pissed.
Yet, exercising helps me work through my anger.
What do you do to work through yours?

My Love Affair with Hard Manny (manual treadmill folks)

I asked my Fab5, if they have a piece of exercise equipment that they use regularly – You know, that was either garbage for someone else, you got it 10 cents on the dollar or is junk to anybody but you, that you have a love affair with.  Well this is mine.  I call it “Manny” the MANUAL treadmill.  And he’s hard all the time…

Manny was made in the early 1980's and is not like a regular manual treadmill. His tread does not move unless you "dig" deep, like running on sand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I do 4 intervals with Manny.  I walk the first minute (but it’s hard walking, like manual steering from a parked position), the tread won’t easily move.  I recover for a minute.  Yes, recover.  Remember YOU ARE THE MOTOR, there’s no “switch” to turn on.  When you start, it starts… when you stop, it’s stops… no cool down.

I’ve had clients get on it and say, “O.K. what do I do?”  I say, “Start walking… heel first…”  It takes them a while to get the hang of it.  Sometimes they push so hard, their shoe comes off.  (I have to turn my head because I’m trying not to laugh and they’ll think I’m messing with them and I’m not!)

They have said, “I’ll work with you, if you DON’T make me get on THAT MACHINE!”  That’s when you know it’s a good one (piece of equipment).

 

Back to my love affair – Then I run like a pit bull is after me for 30 seconds – recover 2 minutes.  My heart rate is off the charts, I don’t even want to look at it until at least a minute into recovery.  I repeat the 30 second sprint- recovery 2 minutes, for 2 more intervals.  Then if I don’t throw up, (precisely why I exercise on a empty stomach, and so should you), I do some TRX moves, some thin thighs in 30 days moves, some hip flexor stretches with a small ball and chest and hamstring stretches and I’m done. 16 minutes.

I have a date every day with Manny except Mondays.  No exercise on Mondays.  A valuable lesson I’ll teach you if you stick with me.

 

What we want to teach you is to find a piece of equipment (your body will do also), that you can and will utilize and form a “love affair with it”.  Talk dirty to it if necessary.  Whatever it takes to get you in it’s presence and using it.

 

Every morning, I meet with Manny, I say “I’m only going one round (interval) with you today Manny… you wore me out yesterday.”  Then I end up doing them all.  It’s a love-hate relationship because some mornings I take a sneak a peak at myself in the mirror (you know, you pretend like you’re not looking at yourself) and my midsection is awesome.  And I love Manny.  When I have to run to catch a bus or after Pang Pang (my pug who thinks he can out run a kitty cat) and don’t feel like I’m going to die or lift babies or groceries and can eat more… I LOVE Manny.

 

At my age, I don’t want to teach 12 exercise classes a week or do endless cardio or body pump, or cross fit.  I just want to “zip my pants” and have enough energy to enjoy my life. And to do that, I’ve figured out that I have to have my love affair with Manny until one of us says good bye.

 

Leave comments below and share your favorite piece of exercise equipment, even if it’s your own body.  I’d love to know what it is.  Can you develop a love affair with it?  I hope you’ll try…

Fitness Nurse Heretic & Promoter meets Lisa Sasevich

This is an old entry of a couple of years ago.

But because of the new changes I have made I felt compelled to resurface it.

Why?  Because it was from theis experience, from Lisa’s lips to my ears, the advice that I decided to take and ride:

“Lori, don’t change your act; change your audience.”

So instead of talking to nurses interested in fitness and self-employment; my new audience are broken, under-appreciated nurses who need and want to improve their own bodies/health and “fix” themselves; so they can better serve others in what they KNOW THEY CAN DO…help other people “at-risk” too. (And they can make some income in the process, they are hungrier!)

—————————————————————

Yes, I met the great Lisa Sasevich.  Those of you who are saying, “Who is Lisa Sasevich?”  That’s coming.

First, I need your nursing assessment skills.  Can you please tell me what you think this is?  ( I know what it is now, just want you to put on your nursing cap)

These red, itchy bumps started to appear randomly, as soon as landed in Las Vegas...

If you thought, “hives” then you answered correctly my friend.
  • That morning before I left for the airport, I didn’t yet confirm with the ‘dog nanny’ to watch our beloved Pang Pang pug.
  • That morning before I left for the airport, I took an assignment to test some students in North Jersey (crazy traffic near Rutger’s U). I thought it would take a few hours.  The very first student took an hour and 20 minutes to test… oh boy.  Will I make my flight?  Security at Newark is atrocious.  What shoes should I wear?  Can I take a bottle of aspirin, can I take my vitamins on the plane? Should I just check my bag to be safe?  Too many questions rolling through my head!
  • That morning before I left for the airport, I was having trouble communicating with the driver of the car that was taking me to the airport, bad cell phone connection.
  • I wasn’t done packing.
  • I’m on a hormone rollercoaster. (lack of sleep, edgy, heart palpitations)
  • I’ve been to Las Vegas a couple of times before, but this time was different… I was going there to meet one of my mentors in a big way, by myself.
  • I thought of all the other reasons/ways I could spend this money on.
  • But underneath all this chaos going on internally… I knew that I had to do this for YOU… not just me.  I had to get more and more clear and get this infomation and share it with you so you can further your gift of fitness nursing to your tribe (that I’ll show you how to develop).
  • After rushing through the airport, waiting in security lines and finally boarding our late plane, I exhaled as I sat down in my seat and realized that I was alone.  Meaning the one person who I would’ve called at least 7-8 times by now, in my craziness, my mother, was gone… again.  But I had to do this.  Because I want to do this.  I knew that it was going to be o.k., but I still had that ‘knot’ in my tummy that never really left until I got back in Jersey.
  • Back to the hives.  All of this led up to me breaking out in hives.  (luckily none on my face!) I’m still breaking out today as I write this, but much better.  It was my nerves.  I stepped way out of my comfort zone… so much so, I broke out in hives!  But it didn’t kill me and I’d do it again, if the opportunity came up again.  I know that I can handle it.  What I did is what very few people do… ACT!  And it was well worth it – I was so thrilled to meet Lisa Sasevich as you will see below.  I also made some great connections from all the other ‘agents of change’ who were there… ‘doing’ instead of ‘wishing’.  It was an awesome experience, hives and all!:

    Lisa and Lori. She's "The Queen of Sales Conversion and The Invisible Close" and I'm, "The Promoter of Fitness Nurse Consultants" See a trend here. Call yourself by what you do, so people can tell other people about you easily.
