Planning Your Vision and Your Goals - 2017

"Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now." quote by Alan Lakein

Vision Planning
2017 is about to hit you in the face and what have you done to prepare yourself? 
  • If you faced challenges and obstacles in 2016, you probably spent some of your year recovering from them.  
  • If you experienced loss, you probably spent time on thinking about the past and what you could have done different.
  • If you experienced let downs or failures, you probably wondered why me or thought I can't let this happen again.
  • If there were times you didn't know what you were going to do next, you may have thought how can I change my life.
  • And if you thought, I need help but don't know how to take that next step or where to go for help or who to ask for help.
At one point and time, we've probably had these thoughts. Life is like that often and how we deal with it makes all the difference. 

"Today I close the door to the past, Open the door to future, take a deep breath, step on through and start a new chapter in my life." -Author Unknown

For those that are needing some help and ways to cope with the past year as they get ready for the next, I would like to offer some ways to deal with life, to plan, and to take your path in the direction that will help you live a more fulfilled life.  There are no promises that the obstacles and challenges will be removed but there will be definitely ways to address the difficulties and to find ways to change the perspective and possibly design the outcomes you are looking for.

On January 21, 2017 - I will be hosting a Vision Planning and Goals Setting Workshop from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm, at the Artist Box Studio, 2010 E University, Suite 4, Tempe, AZ. 

The cost of workshop is $50.00 which includes all the materials needed to begin your journey of vision planning and lunch.  Coffee and water will be provided. Register by clicking the button below.

The workshop will include the following:

1. Finding and / or documenting your mission
2. Creating and refining your vision
3. Establishing the goals to support them
4. Clearing obstacles and blocks
5. Creating your Vision Board
6. Accountability
7. How to keep yourself motivated

Planning often scares people and talking about the future as it is an unknown.  This workshop will provide a safe and easier way to look at your future and where you are at today so you can begin to tackle life on your terms versus "life hitting you in the face".

As part of my life and business, I have developed and focused on planning for personal and business objectives for over thirty years.  I have consulted with businesses and individuals for the last six years on methodologies and planning.  Through this experience and my own personal experience, I have been able to help others learn the necessary techniques and help adapt them to their own life.

If you want to see a change, sign up for this workshop NOW and get ready for 2017 on your terms.  The cost of workshop is $50.00 which includes all the materials needed to begin your journey of vision planning and lunch.  Coffee and water will be provided.

Saturday night brought an evening full of fashion and entertainment with FAB Weekend’s Fashion Against Bullying fashion show and Blazing Curves runway show.
The event was held at the always quaint Embassy Suites Hotel in the Phoenix/Paradise Valley area. I love this place. It may be a large property but it always feels so cozy. Very inviting.

awareness to two very different topics. Each face negative similarities which can be otherwise harmful in many ways to one's self esteem and worth.

Bullying amongst our youth and the misnomer that curvy women aren’t or can’t be beautiful has been an age old thorn for decades.

Not on this night....

FAB Weekend allowed every model no matter how old or young no matter shape or size to set aside any negativity and be free and beautiful on the runway.

So let’s talk about these kiddos on the runway…..

Who doesn’t love the little ones strutting down the runway? You truly have no idea what you are going to get. I thought there was diva-esque attitude at the first annual Fashion Against Bullying show…..but on this night it was turned up a notch!



The young men even hammed it up quite a bit having a good time for an even better cause. These kids of all ages had a blast being a part of
such an inspiring event.   





                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                The 2nd annual FAB event let the inner fashionista out of some of these kiddos. I was grinning from ear to ear as if they were my own child. I loved every minute of it. It was great!

I was even impressed with the older grade schoolers taking command of the runway and not letting the super adorable babies steal all the limelight.


Bullying amongst our youth has become such a troubling problem in our society that suicide in our younger generation has been escalating. This is incredibly disheartening as no child should ever have to suffer at the hands of a bully. Sadly we are surrounded by vast resources that give bullies a high platform to be up front and center. As parents we must talk to our children on the daily and be nosy... It's our job!

For the children who are affected directly or indirectly by bullying had a safe haven on this stage to hold their pretty little heads high and smile (or stare like a deer in headlights) and make their way down the runway. This may have been the first time on the catwalk for several of the kiddos but you never would of known it by the confidence shown.


The talent billed for the night went right along with the stand up against bullying theme. Nothing like the young people being the entertainment for young people. They were all so talented!

And now for the Blazing Curves runway show....

Let me start off by saying "wow" to the ladies who have blossomed with a confidence so big it filled the room. 

I first met the Blazing Curves models several years back and was intrigued with the tenacity and leadership behind the company. 

I was impressed how founder Kathy Blaze Jefferson created a platform for women with curves where they can be pretty, exude confidence, and show there beauty inside and out.

Check out these beautiful ladies blazing up the runway...
