Susan Higley

    Goal #1 – I am an energetic, money making Vitamark woman, producing a monthly bonus check of $3000 or more easily and consistently by offering the opportunity, providing value products, and being coachable by Dec 31, 2011.

Why?

I feel it is the best way for me to help as many people as possible and honor my God.

It will serve me the best to help my family in many ways, from visiting, health concerns and future stability in life.

I will have accomplished something in my family that no one else has done.

It will serve as a vehicle for me to take other classes and continue my education in different areas of my life.

I will be contributing to the financial success of our household.

What will I feel like when I have accomplished this goal?

I will feel like I have a job again. For me that will feel good. It will be so nice to have my own money again. When those weekly checks start arriving, then it will give me energy and confidence that I am on track in my life.

There are so many things to do. My interests vary in such a range. I am looking forward to treating myself to quality holistic health treatments, taking classes from sewing or dancing, and traveling with Dan to exotic places, like Australia with all of you.

When I get to $3000 a month, my team will be duplicating and the checks will increase more easily. It will be fun to see leverage working in my organization.

How can I make this happen in the fastest way possible or in the shortest length of time?

I must sponsor 4 others that want to do the business. Teach them how to sponsor 4. Work on helping the lowest on the line of success and that will move the whole team forward.

To sponsor, improve my social skills, improve my inviting skills, improve my online skills, and improve my closing skills .

Mostly learn to listen, sort, and keep moving in action. I can not let the no’s bring me down.

Show up , be all in. put my face on daily and play big.

What must I overcome to achieve this goal?

I must spend my time effectively and efficiently. Talk to many people with good posture, and confidence. Remember that I have a wonderful offer that is changing lives, health and finances for many people.

I must overcome my fear of running out of money for marketing. I must focus continually on my vision to living a lifestyle to rent a sailboat at whim if I choose.

I must overcome the fear of being “liked”. Stay focused on achieving
my goals. As I help others reach their desires for time, money, or travel, then I will be rewarded.

What must I give up to get this goal?

I must limit my time with friends and family for now.

I must limit my activities with hobbies, no sewing, no big needle projects.

Also, I must limit my meal preparation. Cooking one gourmet meal a month instead of a few times a week.

    Goal #2 – I am a loving, dedicated massage therapist focusing on craniosacral therapy (CST) to facilitate wellness with executives , and dental or other health professionals by treating 15 clients per week or more by April 30, 2012.

Why?

I am a natural healer. It gives me peace and oneness with spirit to help others by relieving stress and pain.

I am a hands on person and it is comforting to be comforted. There is not enough compassionate touch in this world and unconditional love for an individual can change their health and lives for the better.

Giving and a peacemaker are natural for me. This is a way to take my natural qualities and develop a business and passion for what is already in my life.

It reinforces my spiritual side, with definite structural anatomy with the body. Structure and function are related to proper health. When structure is allowed to be facilitated , then function and energy flow increase through the body. Less stress, better moods,
and emotional garbage dumping are benefits to the client.

I like to be recognized with certificates and awards. It gives me a feeling of accomplishment and I feel smarter on the inside.

I believe that there are many seeking alternative treatments that are less invasive than surgery and less dangerous than prescription drugs.

What will I feel like when I have accomplished this goal?

I will feel completeness. I started this journey in 2003 and then put in on the back burner.

I am happy and fulfilled as many people seek alternative treatments for their health.

I have created abundance in my mind by continuing my medical knowledge and expressing it in a holistic atmosphere.

I have created humor and rapport while communicating with the body and it gives me creativity, hope, and a variety of techniques to express love and healing to an individual.

I feel powerful to offer a sacred environment to invite spirit a chance to express any emotions desired to resolve dis- ease in the body with safety.

I feel confident communicating with the client with various images and dialogue to give to most value for their session.

I feel satisfied, peaceful and loved as I practice my hands on trade by following through the quest given to my by God.

I am grateful that I will be trusted to facilitate healing and recovery for individuals in a loving , caring and professional environment that will allow their senses and inner physcian to be active and participate in the sessions.

I will feel creative and I have a unique perception to get to the core of the problem.

How can I make it happen in the fastest way possible or the shortest length of time?

Commit to studying, getting people on my table, and go to events to increase my skills and be with other practitioners.

Increase my networking. Increase advertising in local papers. Do demos at various meetings.

Give presentations at various local meetings.

Do direct mail pieces in a series to certain lists of people.

Get a website up and going.

Be active on social sites.

Give away gift cetificates for a treatment at local events.

Talk to more people.

Balance my time.
Commit to certain times to treat individuals.
Marketing money issues.
Feeling worthy to ask for payment
Structure fees and stick to it.
Allow it into my life.
Being away from home and family.

What will I give up to get this goal?

Time with Dan to get to events
Elaborate cooking and most hobbies
Being a perfectionist- just do it
My attitude that others are better at treatment than me.

What must I have to get this goal?
Confidence
Trust
Accountability partner
My loving husband
Persistence
Love for people
Continued Personal Development with a Mentor

    Goal#3 – I am a creative story teller and active listener through trusting my thoughts and imagination as I confidently read tarot cards for myself as the universe speaks to me by September 30, 2012.

Why?

I will be an active practice to develop my trust and intuition.

It is a practice to increase my imagination and creativity.

It is something fun to learn and experience

It will allow me to be more aware of my surroundings to see Spirit working in my life.

It is an added dimension to my faith.

Also, I can use it for a tool in consulting and treating my clients.

I want to increase my spiritual energy.

What will I feel when I have accomplished this goal?

I have purposely increased my sensitivity and vibration as a being.

I am excited as ideas flow quickly and my ability to write thoughts on paper become urgent.

I am peaceful and calm as I recognize situations through the day and deal with them more efficiently.

I am conscious of being and live in the now.

I am spirit filled, loving and compassionate in all areas of my life.

How can I make it happen in the fastest way or shortest period of time?

Practice daily with the cards.
Go to groups and be around others that can already do this.
Journal my thoughts as I learn the cards.
Trust what I see, feel or create in the story
Set a specific daily time
Make the environment pleasing for me
Know it is a journey at my own pace
Listen to my inner guides and angels
Make it fun

Chris Phillips

Chris Phillips has been an Entrepreneur for over 12 years and in the transportation field for over 30 years.

He has been a Real Estate Investor since 2008, starting with single family home rentals in Indiana and now fixing and flipping homes in both Indiana and his home state of New York.

Starting with coaching from successful business coach Loral Langemeier, who helped form a solid business foundation, Chris and his wife, Lynn, started a franchise providing freight solutions called InXpress.

While learning from some of the most successful people in Real Estate investing, such as Robyn Thompson, Andy Heller, Marko Rubel, Cameron Dunlap, Larry Harbolt and Kent Clothier, they have helped him drive a successful Real Estate Investing business.

Recently the interest of commercial properties has driven Chris to learn from both Terry Hale and Paul Finck the art of Commercial Investing and, in a short time, he has been able to gain the knowledge and passion to be currently working on multiple, multi-million dollar properties.

Chris is a proud father and step-father of four beautiful children and two adorable grandchildren.  He looks forward to spending a lot more time with them as he knows what his business will give him.

Corliss C. Wood

Corliss C. Wood has impacted many individuals with the purpose of bringing out the best in them. She inspires through the use of their individual talents in developing self-confidence and self-motivation.  As mediocrity has little room in her life, she strives to empower others to achieve excellence in all areas of their life.

Corliss is the mother of two sons, one son with LD (learning disability) – PDD & Autism.  She has spent the majority of their childhood challenging them to become as independent as possible.  She believes empowering children / teenagers to become independent will provide self-confidence in the teen and freedom to the parent.  Utilizing some of the same techniques, she has also been successful working with adults.

As much as she enjoys empowering others, she also enjoys keeping herself active as an entrepreneur.  Real estate has been a part of her life since childhood, as her family owned several properties in California and she and her brother were the “cheap hired help.” The work ethic she possesses today to “get the job done” can be attributed to her parents who always expected excellence.  She is a person who thinks outside the box, one who is willing to build, work, dream, create and circumvent mediocrity.

Corliss’ desire to fulfill the dream of becoming an entrepreneur was greatly inspired by Robert Kiyosaki the author of  “Rich Dad Poor Dad” and a few others in the real estate world: Sherman Ragland, Peter Gauthier, and Paul Finck just to name a few.  With a focus on creating multiple streams of income and a desire to pursue her dream as an entrepreneur, her mind explodes with creativity that fuels her passion to empower individuals to become the very best they can be.

Helping others find new cheese

Inspiring those with low self-esteem, build self-confidence

I figured it was just as easy to list the info first.

I was born and raised on Long Island.  I had lived for about 5 yrs in Kansas and Iowa.  Total lifestyle change. After I moved back to NY I became a NY City Transit Police. In case you don’t know what that means; I rode the subways. Always did the late tours they were better and had less bosses to deal with. I got out after 12 years due to a knee injury. The job was great and met some really wonderful people.

I am recently married 6yrs. I married my high school sweetheart. Being that we got married late in life we do not have any children.

We sold the house in NY and moved to Fl. We live just below Tampa. Bought a condo. Great neighbors but I really miss not having a backyard. Too many rules for my taste.  May have to think about moving again.   In this community there is a free ambulance service. It is run by all volunteers. So since I was one of the younger people living here I figured I would be a help out. They asked me to an EMB (that is the most basics there is).  I then put in for a job as an EMT and got it. This is the shortest travel time I have ever had to any job.  I still work there.

When I say we moved to Fl.  I also meant my sister, aunt, and three girlfriends.

When one of my girlfriends got laid-off, she approached me about opening a business. So we did. It is a shoe store, Naot Plus, and we work out of a mall in Clearwater Fl.  Owned the business now for 2yrs. It is doing well but need to grow more.

As for my off time we enjoy dining out, barbeques at friends house (she has 5 acres of land I’m jealous) I am still checking out all the local attractions (museums, various festivals, parks and things like that). Of course being in FL yes the beaches are great so is boating.

Ken Wenrick

Ken is an entrepreneur, author, speaker, real estate investor and educator. He likes to say it’s been a “great ride” to get to this point. For the past 28 years, Ken has experienced multiple levels of business challenges and an enormous amount of success.

Early in his career, while at IBM he demonstrated an amount of value to the company by implementing programs and procedures that saved the company over $100,000,000 per year and he received much recognition for that. This gave him the exposure and confidence to branch out on his own and follow a more entrepreneurial path.

In addition to IBM, Ken has consulted and worked with companies like Intel, Motorola and Microchip and has authored several published papers and has been a featured speaker at several “High Tech” industry events.

He traveled throughout the US, Canada and Mexico as a sales manager for a technology company where he trained, motivated and managed multiple sales organizations consisting of hundreds of sales personnel.

Since then, he went on to build several multi-million dollar businesses in the “technology” arena and in real estate.

His first solo enterprise was Advanced Filtration Systems, a company that provided engineering solutions and clean air filtration products and services to the high tech industry.  Soon after, he began investing in real estate and found a new passion. With that, he built a multi-million dollar portfolio of income properties.

Always raising the bar, Ken had a desire to “build something” or as he says, “I like to create” therefore his land development business began. While developing and building homes in an area near Phoenix, he met the perfect realtor to market his properties and eventually, he married that realtor, Sylvia Howard.

Ken currently has a business buying and selling land and continues to invest in residential and commercial properties. His most recent business venture is to educate, train and coach others how to invest. He is currently writing books on the subjects of real estate, investing and personal development. His mission: Create Inspire and Motivate.

Lynn Phillips

Lynn Phillips has been a real estate investor for over two years, buying single-family homes and holding them for rentals.

She started buying foreclosures in Indianapolis, for rehabbing and flipping, and recently bought her first foreclosure in her home state of New York.

After attending many boot camps and seminars, Lynn has received an extensive education in business and real estate from Laurel Langemeier, Robyn Thompson, Lee Phillips, Pete Gauthier, Terry Hale, Marko Rubel, Cameron Dunlop, Dean Graziosi and Chris Wise.  Along with her husband, Chris, she is now actively looking to get into commercial real estate.  They also have a freight solutions franchise that they are also growing.

Prior to getting into real estate, Lynn was a teaching assistant at the junior high school level.  She is a mother of four wonderful children ranging from 29 to 16 and two precious grandchildren, 3 and 4 months.

She is passionate about her family and is grateful for the time she has to spend with them, as well as her real estate endeavors, and all the potential it offers.  She enjoys traveling, whether it’s for business or pleasure, and looks forward to a year of many great things!

Mark McKenzie

Passion is the key to all things worthwhile. Without it, all things fall short of their potential. I have always been the type to bring my utmost passion into everything I do. Being in the Music Industry for the past seventeen years as the owner of the Auburn Guitar Shoppe as well as an active musician in the region has awarded me the pleasure to do what I love for a living. I love to make music and I love to help people enhance their musical experiences through assisting with proper gear, instruction, and advice.

Also loving to always achieve more and conquer new challenges, I have been investing in real estate for nearly ten years with a more intense focus in this exciting field over the past two years. Starting with land investments, McKenzie Properties has acquired our first residential units over the past year and is now expanding our focus to include commercial investments.

I have devoted much time toward professional and personal development to include working with and supporting national speakers in these arenas as well as the real estate field. This is another new and exciting business venture that holds very promising potential for future growth.

I am married to the woman of my dreams, Shannon Rae McKenzie. Always believing in me, she is key to my continued success with her rock solid support. We are the parents of five and the grandparents of two. I continue to learn more and more about myself from all of my children.

I, Mark McKenzie, am a businessman, a father, a husband, a musician, a dreamer, and an unstoppable achiever! I can only imagine what the future holds…….

Shannon McKenzie

My name is Shannon Rae McKenzie, I am a wife, mother, business owner, real estate investor, entrepreneur, idea generator, analyzer, negotiator, teacher, student, and empowering problem-solver. I am inspiring, courageous, caring, life-loving, environmentally friendly, always evolving, an unstoppable resilient woman, and most importantly I am me and happy to be the person I am today.

I attended Auburn University where I earned my bachelors degree and specialized in the area of Family and Child Development. Since graduating college, I have established a diverse career background working with children, adults and families in different areas of social services. More recently my primary focus has been working in the field of behavior analysis and early intervention for children clinically diagnosed with Autism as well as Developmentally Delayed children with special needs as a assistant director, teacher and supervisor. Prior to that, I worked at a youth detention facility as a teacher and behavior specialist, a high security mental institution and hospital for mentally ill adult male patients as an art therapist, a grant funded program specializing in abstinence awareness for a 4th and 5th graders in a low socioeconomic area as a teacher, and at a medicaid waiver program for indigent pregnant women in five county health departments as an educational instructor.

I thoroughly enjoy working with people. Over the past few years I have transitioned into real estate investing and coaching as well as professional and personal development.

I have continued to incorporate my passion and unique background experience into these endeavors. This has proven to enhance my overall satisfaction and growth as a person and professional. McKenzie Properties allows me to uniquely structure our property management/investment company to a set standard that which I can employ an affordable personal touch to each and every investment we undertake. Vision, passion and a knack for turning an undesirable dated property into a desirable beautiful home at an affordable price for a family is my goal. Designing an affordable, quality home to meet the needs of a well deserved individual or family is a non-negotiable standard that we honorably stand by.

My motto: “Where There Is A Will, There Is A Way”

I’ve done a lot of things in my life starting pretty young, I was in Retail and  Banking, I am a licensed Nail Technician , I was a bartender for ten years, I operated a Tree Service and now I’ve been a Realtor since 2003.

I really enjoy helping others fulfill their dreams of home ownership.

I’ve been  married since 2007 to a wonderful man, Ken Wenrick. He is charming , handsome, intelligent, articulate, caring and ambitious. Qualities I admire and wish to emulate.

I am a free spirit, I love the outdoors, traveling, dancing , skiing, boating, hiking, reading, photography and I have to admit I am a bit of a computer geek. I like all things about the creative process. I am outspoken and have no problem taking charge. I am brutally honest and pride myself on my sense of integrity. One way to describe me is I am like Flip Wilson (remember him?)” What You See is What You Get” I wear my heart on my sleeve, I love animals and I have a sensitive streak a mile wide. That being said I can be very tough when pushed and have been known to slay others with my sharp tongue. I also suffer from foot in mouth syndrome, thankfully with age I am able to control that better than in the past. I still have to bite my tongue often.

I have been on a journey for personal development for a number of years and I feel that in the last year I’ve grown exponentially.  Like many people I’ve been to the school of hard knocks and nothing will keep me down. I want my journey to take me on the path to enlightenment and my goal is to help others get there too.

I am a natural optimist and rarely stay sad for long, life is too short.

I hope to make an impact on the lives of those who need hope and inspiration.

Especially women who don’t believe they are worthy , or have been abused.

That’s my story and I’m stickin to it

Light ‘n Love
