The R in the ABC’s of Success in life and in Business is Relationships. Do you value ALL the relationships you have the privilege of having? Do you think about what you can give rather then get in your relationships? What are some of your favorite client relationships? Are the relationships in your life more of a burden or a gift? #BetheException #RelationshipsMatter #PineapplePrinciple #ValueYourClientandFriends #PineappleLady
When we remember it is much more important to think about the message we deliver then how many we deliver it to.
Though my plan is to book 100 speaking engagements this year, I know it is most important to deliver a quality presentation every time I have the opportunity to take the stage. I know it is always a privilege to be an influence and I Pray my words make a difference in everyone’s life that hears me sometimes it is most important that I speak hope into one persons life that feels they are losing their battle in life and just needs a little hope. Quality counts!
The Q in the ABC’s of a Successful business is make sure your Product or Service is Quality over Quantity. Quality service and a quality message will get you more referrals, recommendations and endorsements. I hope you think of what your clients will get out of each engagement they have with you. Quality service will lead to life long success in any Business! #BetheException #MotivationalSpeaker #ABCsofSuccess #KeynoteSpeaker #QualityOverQuantity #PineapplePrinciple
Blame & Excuses
Do you ever find yourself, or others around you, explaining why nothing ever works out for them by making excuses or placing blame elsewhere? I believe if we think about something long enough, we can always find someone to blame or multiple excuses why things aren’t working out; but what if we stopped blaming others, blaming ourselves, and making excuses, and instead spent the time reflecting on how to positively change the things in our lives that aren’t going our way?
I recognize change can be challenging for many people, myself included, and that’s why we tend to stay stuck in negativity or follow unhealthy patterns. I know it can be challenging to create change, but I wholeheartedly feel the reward in changing the areas of your life that aren’t working is worth the time, effort, patience, and grace.
Through my life’s journey I’ve come to know that where excuses and blame end is where we might find hard work at first, but after we put in the time we often find freedom and, ultimately, true joy!
This week I encourage you to examine what excuses or blame you may be holding on to. Then, take the first step toward letting them go. Whether that means self-healing, reaching out to mend a broken relationship, or simply not accepting “No” as an answer, I’m confident you can move forward toward freedom and joy.
6 years ago when I started full-time as a professional speaker my company name was NO More Excuses 4U and someone in an organization I am part of felt threaten by my name and said he would sue me if I didn’t change it so at a loss of 40,000, I changed everything I had created and built but today I look back knowing he was wrong and had a different name. It makes me smile to think he allowed the EXCUSE of a little competition scare him into threatening a little Midwest lunch lady. Not sure what happen to him but no excuse will stop me from seeking success in the speaking profession
What does living your exceptional life look like to you?
What excuses or blame are you ready to let go of? What does your first step look like?
Do you believe freedom and joy are waiting for you on the other side of excuses and blame?
What alternative future makes you want to let go of negativity and embrace positiveity?
P stands for Passion in finding success in Business

Definition of never
1 : not ever : at no time
I never met her
2 : not in any degree : not under any condition
never the wiser for his experience
I love it when people say yes first, then ask for details later. I feel like the world we live in today has us surrounded by people who are so cautious about decisions that they rarely get anything done out of fear of committing without overthinking first. They let their sense of fear lead them instead of their sense of adventure.
I love to say yes to things on the spot, then dig into the details later when I have spare time. I believe if you’re too stuck in the details, or too much of a realist, you won’t have as much fun or as many experiences in life. Over time, I’ve encountered dreamers who have lead fantastic, full lives rife with adventure, but I’ve encountered many more realists who begin to think about, maybe even start to plan for or dream about something, just to watch their fears start to seep in and convince them to say no. They tell themselves that being safe and comfortable would be better than the risk of following their hearts.
I feel the people who just say yes, even if it doesn’t make complete sense in the moment, enjoy life more, have more fun, take more risks, and ultimately reap greater rewards. This week, I encourage you to say yes to something that makes you slightly uncomfortable. I challenge you not to let your feelings of comfort, safety, and realism stop you from enjoying a great, new experience as you continue the adventure of life!
What does living your exceptional life look like to you?
Are you a dreamer or a realist?
Do you wait for all the details before making a decision or do you spontaneously jump all in?
Do you prefer adventure or comfort? Why?
If I asked you to say YES in one of my presentations lately and never told you what you said YES to here it is…What cause do you care about? What physical challenge do they offer to raise money? Walk/Jog, Bike ride, paddle or roller blade to raise awareness and money! You Pick the cause and event we together get 10+ people to join us and we celebrate life together. So many causes to pick from. I love to sign up in January and pick a summer event but it is up to you What can we say YES to together?
