POWERHOUSE POINTER #10
On this news this morning, a Bronx, NY woman -- whose family's apartment was completely damaged by yesterday's flood -- said she doesn't know what she, her unemployed husband and three children are going to do now. Nothing is salvagable so they will have to start over. They didn't have renter's insurance. We never know when a disaster is going to happen. This incident is a wake-up call to be protected in case of emergency. Strongly consider purchasing renter's insurance. I'm looking into it TODAY!

POWERHOUSE POINTER #9
Recently, I was contacted by a female entertainer and fellow "powerhouse" who I grew up admiring and listening to. She inquired about e working with her. I was humbled and thankful to God that this woman felt that the work that I do to empower other women worthy enough to seek my gift and talent for herself. You never know who is watching you. Let your work ethic be authentic and action-packed as well as result producing because your next client could be waiting in the wings. I can't until our conference call. It's ON!

POWERHOUSE POINTER #8
I was feeling a way this A.M. In trying to work through my emotions, I stopped by my friend's clothing store. Teasha and I talked about staying the course in the midst of challenges; to be steadfast no matter what. By the conclusion of our conversation (and my purchase!), I was back to being the powerful thinking woman that I know and love. Don't let your emotions rule your day. Talk it out.

POWERHOUSE POINTER #7
Value your time today by disregarding anyone who calls or stops you to gossip, shoot the breeze or have conversation that doesn't mirror your action plan. Remember... Once time is gone, you can't get it back. So, maximize on your seconds, minutes and hours.
POWERHOUSE POINTER #6
Today, I picked up the book, "The Early Show: Effects of Television on Children and Youth (2nd Ed). It got me to thinking about the amount of time children spend glued to what some refer to as "The Idiot Box." I know school is out and our children want to chill. But, I challenge you to turn off the tube and have them pick up a book. The book will build their mind. The TV? Not so much.
POWERHOUSE POINTER #5
When Springtime sets in you indulge in the "Spring Cleaning" ritual. You throw out old clothes, furniture, papers and such. You refuse to go into the new season with old stuff. You want better for your space. Please consider doing this with the people in your life. Some don't belong in your world anymore.
POWERHOUSE POINTER #4
If you ever feel mistreated while shopping (or window shopping, for that matter), please exercise your right to report your issue to the powers that be. The store employee can't get away with it if you let your voice be heard through the good ol' pen. It's powerful and intimidating. Check out my Note Oh How the Power of the Pen is Mighty (and Intimidating)! on Facebook where I talk about my experience in Elegance and you'll see exactly what I'm talking about!
POWERHOUSE POINTER #3
If you are an employer and have to lay someone off, do so with decency and professionalism. Don't mail off a termination letter when you can call your employee in for a face-to-face exit interview. Just as there is karma with how you treat people on a personal level, so it is in the professional arena. What goes around comes back around.
POWERHOUSE POINTER #2
Don't ignore your calling. If you do, someone else will answer your call and get what was supposed to be for you.
POWERHOUSE POINTER #1
You can't become a powerful person from the seat of your comfort zone. Dare to step into your greatness RIGHT NOW. You will then be able to conquer higher heights, accomplish bigger goals, move mighty mountains and be a shining example of a powerhouse. And, that's what's really good!
Handle Your Employee's Exit with Decency and an Ounce of Humanity
