Uniqueness is the key. Giving your business your personal touch is what its all about!
Contrary to what others may think, starting your own small business does not have to be overwhelming and intimidating. Not when positively- driven is around!
Business defined: “provision of goods and services to customers in exchange for other goods, services, or money “
You may be wondering right now what your business should be; or where and how to start own small business; where and how to get the funding; where to get the education and training; how to create a product that your customers would love; or the most daunting of all … location, location, location.
Or maybe you are wondering about healthy living while achieving success?

I am a presently in the midst of my small business journey and I created this page so that we both can journey together. It offers motivation, education, expert advice, guides and most of all information for taking your passions and turning them into the business you’ve envisioned for so long.
To guide you along, here’s an organized sitemap to help you browse by topic. You can also use the search form at the top of the site.
So, What Do I Mean By Business
Table of Contents
Your desire may be to start a support group – ( ehem, ehem – excuse me ) or several support groups helping persons to recuperate from a traumatic past. You may want to begin a non-profit organization, a soup kitchen, a healthy outlet, a clothing store … ( and the list goes on).
Whatever your desires may be towards – then that should be your business.
A business is defined as the provision of goods and service to customers in exchange for other “goods”, “service” or “money”
This means, therefore that your business can be anything and your reward for business goes far beyond money. Your reward for your business can offer hope or change the life dramatically of another individual.
We Are Committing The Ultimate Crime
It is not enough to just simply exist. It is a crime! A crime on yourself and society when you rob yourself of living a fulfilled, motivated and alive existence.
You are a gift to this world. There is only one ‘you’ and there will never be another. No one will ever be able to do it like you can! You can change the lives of so many people, just by cherishing and using the gifts, the passions, the desires that God has given you. Finding, Refining and Walking in your purpose is our way of life.
This page will assist you with getting the most out of your life using something that you already have within you (yep, you do have it within you already) – your gift. So let’s get rolling … we have wasted enough years already!
Getting Started: Creating a Business that You Love
All I wanted to do was help my struggling friends and family with what I knew about life. I wanted to see the light bulb shine – the ‘Aha moment’ happen right before my face – when they can finally say ‘life makes sense’ or ‘I finally have the tools that I need to make it happen for me’.
All I wanted was to be there for others who just had questions that they could not find answers to. I wanted to find those answers, then show them the way. There was a deep stirring inside me to make a difference; to share my message and my gift with the world.
That was the beginning of my journey. Actually, this feeling remains with me throughout my journey. It propelled me into action and it keeps the fire under my feet every day! The first step to creating a business you love is …( drum roll please …)
#1 – Desire
I knew you already knew the end of that statement!
So, maybe you have learned something about life or about business and you would love to share it with others. Well, that is Desire. And when that desire is strong enough, it will make you think of nothing else. It will haunt your dreams and even your waking moments. Everything you hear or see will trigger that stirring inside you. It cannot, will not be ignored!

- Desire to Know
- Desire to Grow
- Desire to Show

Yes, there must be a stirring to change your present circumstance. Without this desire for change, you will never begin asking yourself these most valued questions ‘how can I get this done?’ ‘ what am I good at?’ ‘what do I find joy doing?’ ‘what is my next step?’
#2– Finding Your Gift
What’s your gifts? Your talents? Your life’s purpose?
Sounds kind of far fetched doesn’t it?
The next step in your startup business journey, is finding that gift.
Well the truth be told, everyone has a gift. All we have to do is find it. When utilized it gives you that, ‘know that you know that you know’ kind of feeling, that this is what you were meant to be doing. When used, it brings you the deepest sense of joy and contentment.
Once again I say, everyone has that life purpose right within you. The thing is, society has taught us to ignore our true desires. Think about it, can you find degrees on discovering your life’s calling? Not any that I’ve seen.
Some persons are blessed with multiple gifts. Your gift can be to make people laugh like Steve Harvey, or keeping a neat home and organized life like Lorie Marrero. But it’s there. So let’s go find it …

#3 – Shifting Your State of Mind
Transitioning from a destructive mindset to a winning state of mind can be difficult. Especially if you had no clue that there was a problem.
Believe me, I did not have a clue either! ( laughing at myself right now 🙂 ).
Having the desire and finding your gift will be of no use, if fear and self doubt prevents you from taking even one step closer to your goal. Believe it or not, but FEAR is the number one killer of dreams!
So soak in every lesson; read every book in this area …
Starting own small business depends on it!

#4 – Using Your Creativity and Finding Your Voice
Creativity comes natural to me. From the time I could breathe I marched to my own way of norm. It only made sense that through out life I would become not only an ‘internet-preneur’, a song writer, a poet, a graphics designer, a singer, plus some!
But creativity is not a natural way of life for everyone. Try as you might, you just can’t seem to stand out and be original. So how will you every be able to bring your presence or make your small business unique so that it stands out among the rest.
How will you be able to compete or grab their attention?
