Now, my Financial Mentor's are Sara Blakely and Harriet Shaw. Harriet is a Partner at a Real Estate office and I've been wondering if I shouldn't be in Real Estate myself. So, what a way to get my feet wet but to start out administrative and work around the Real Estate office. I know that this is a long shot as far as my "psychic" skills are concerned, but even when I was hired at Jared, a lot of them believed that working around sales, especially diamonds, you have got to be intuitive as Diamonds are a (psychic) Multiplier. Meaning? The gemstones and precious stones multiply your psychic abilities 10 fold. At least that is what a few of them believed while I was there. And the Diamond Manager said, "Hey, that's a good angle! Anything to get the Sale!" Of course! Ha!
I really loved the people I worked with at Jared. They were all very good wholesome people to work around. I found them very likeable personally. Each one of them understood Customer Service to the "T."
I just read that this year is the 50th Anniversary of the Rolling Stones. Maybe, I will meet Mick Jagger this year? I did actually meet Jon Anderson from the Super Group, "Yes" once previously. I also met Jewel here at the Dallas International Film Festival. I was an extra in the very first Ron Howard Film "Cotton Candy." It didn't do well, but Ron Howard did. After he got "Cotton Candy" under his belt, he made "American Graffiti" and the legend of Ron lives ON. I was only 11 years old when I was in his first movie though. It's hard to believe he has lasted in Hollywood for so long. Quite a legend there.
As far as New Year's begin, I have a feeling this is going to be my BEST YEAR EVER. After all I have really set some GREAT Goals for myself for this year. Employment, a day-job is better for me with this board, so I'm "keeping my day job" so to speak. Right now, I have to find new adventure and I have a strong feeling Virginia Cook is going to be it. But, if for some reason they opt not to hire me, there will be another venture in my path. Harriet has faith that God has a plan for me. I have a strong faith as well, but it's hard to see in the muck of it, so, that's why I need Harriet to stay centered.
As far as Sara Blakely is concerned, I wrote her a hand-written letter over the Holiday Season to thank her for her words of Encouragement. As soon as I refine my career goals a bit better with the Psychic Business Consulting, I will have to write her again. Until then, I will keep up the good work here Sara. I know you are keeping tabs on me through the website here and I appreciate all that your doing for me following my journals like your doing. I found your Fortune Telling Vending Machine at your FIRST Storefront EVER, In Washington, D.C. NOT a coincidence. I also found out that you are Psychic as well! Not only the Comedian Extraordinaire but actually Amazed by the Psychic World around you! I was amazed that we have this in common. A real unshakable faith that we were meant to be "Someone" one day. Not that we are not, but that we are two elements attached, so to speak. Plus! To find out that your first storefront was the initial storefront of the then unproven Apple Computers. To know you are following LEGENDS in their footprints. It's an Awesome feeling, isn't it Sara? I really appreciate your following my thread here and it will take all I've got to keep up with it. I still am doing WITHOUT luxuries and saving every penny I have in order to spawn forth any business Venturing I may run into as far as need for collateral in my extracurricular business here.
The one Entrepreneur that I was working with, the so-called Inventor that I wrote about earlier, decided to move along with his Inventions and go on his own. Which is GREAT! Because he was procrastinating at every move I recommended for him. Including sending a proposal to Sara Blakely. I do truly believe in his vision, but his personality turned out to be hard for me to work with. He kept coming to me with different proposals asking for insight, and I helped him to refine his proposals and his prospect lists, but he wasn't paying me and I was having to invest some of my monies in our business meetings. Which was not what I wanted to do . He has approximately 30 patents pending already and about 8 accomplished Patents that he is not receiving royalties from yet. So as far as his background is concerned, he has been sitting on this for close to 10 years now on a wing and a prayer. So, I cut him loose but wish him the best. If anyone sits up and takes notice, I hope my predictions for him come through, as procrastinating any more is not doing him any good services. He has a phenomenal idea and he can pull it off, he just needs to get his investments going. I still don't feel I am at liberty to discuss his name and idea with anyone yet in public. But privately, I've discussed him solely with my Financial Mentor, Harriet Shaw. She disagrees with my insights and claims I'm doing him no services by working with him, best to let him go and have him flounder.
The Mother/Daughter trio that I was working with is still doing well. However, she has cut her business venture in lieu of personal matters right now and is going another direction. I still keep in touch with her, but I'm not working in any intense fashion with her. There is a point where I have to "let go." I can only offer my insight and encouragement at times, as Sara and Harriet have done for me. I can't do it FOR anyone. I have to give my insight and then allow the client to work with or towards that insight. As in Jared, there was a time I worked for them, and offered my suggestions, but they were not open to any of the insight I offered, and true, I was not hired for that. They did know, however, that this is an extracurricular that I advised them that I DO do.
Harriet Shaw knows that I'm going one too many directions with my website here. But this is the way that I want it for now. This is exactly how I want my business to run. Taking each element of offering each day at a time.
I also am intrigued by Susan Roberts, 90 year old wife of the Co-Founder of Comcast. She is doing her own show on CNN and Comcast for Seniors and Baby Boomers. As I aspire to be living healthy and wealthy at the age of 90 myself one day. I just read today about her and am encouraged that she is turning 91 this February. Where STRONG older women are concerned, Susan Roberts has attention and I hope to be hearing more about her in the future. Keep posted as she has Fantastic insight for the elderly. Just another amazing woman to look at for Mentoring me. I hope one day I will grow to be as strong healthy and wealthy as these three Mentoring women in my life. Besides, I've never contacted Susan, but you can be a Woman and be Mentored by a woman you don't even know as long as your following their career. Well, That's all I've got for now! I'll post again soon, and let you know where it is I end up for Day-Job!
