The Most Important Part of an Email

Email is one of your best business assets!
In this video, learn the most important part of your email.
It’s not the subject line or the actual words you write..

Own a business? You need an email list

Your email is your asset.
It is the way to communicate with your tribe and keep them engaged and excited to hear from you!
If you have a business–email is a must!
If you have an email list, which CRM do you use?

Don’t open this (unless you want to smile)

I don't know about you, but life has been cccrrraaaazzzzzeeeee! In an effort to bring some normalcy (and positivity) to our ever-changing world, I thought I would share a little shine with you.  For some time now, long before this quarantine, I began a ritual where...

A 25 Year Dream Comes to Pass

I don't know about you, but I'm a dreamer, have been for a long time. But I'll admit--along the way, I've doubted, questioned, and wondered if my dreams were ever going to come to pass. I'm here with a word of encouragement for you, dear one--keep the dream alive!...

Are You a Turtle or Pufferfish?

God has designed every organism so wonderfully and uniquely. Like, did you know that there are over 10,000 species of butterflies? 10,000 of ONE kind of insect. Unbelievable!  And in His divine craftsmanship, God made each creature with specialized mechanisms for...

Corona CommUNITY

I have a confession.

Not too long ago, I used to be so jealous of others that I would refuse to come along side and celebrate them or support their efforts–no matter if they were in the same space as me or not. I would get angry that they were successful and I was struggling to get by. (Do you think there is a correlation to my attitude?! #smh)

When one door closes, another door opens

"We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” ― Walt Disney I am so grateful for the many responses I received from you as I...

I could use a little help here

If you've been following me over the last few weeks, you know that times they are a changin'.I am taking a complete pivot with Shine.  I am switching gears from physical health and wellness toward kingdom entrepreneurship. I am still going to be using my...

We Have to Start Somewhere

It was a total flop. But this is what we do--we rolled with it. 22 subscribers43 viewsThat’s my baseline to start. Again. I laughed watching my first videos as I prepared (and totally flopped) on posting a LIVE YouTube video yesterday. Who knew you had to have...

Shine 2.0 or Shine 2020?!?

I began Shine in 2014. I have written hundreds of blogs. (Over 70 pages on my website) I have led nearly 2 years worth of challenges. (Not consecutively) I have offered 1:1 and group coaching programs. I have FB Lived a ton--sometimes 30 days in a row! I have posted...

We must faith our fears!

Today we honor the great civic leader and amazing man-of-God, Martin Luther King, Jr. Without a doubt, he is one the world's greatest leaders of all time, and his mission to overcome hate through acts of love was brave and honorable--legacy-worthy for sure. As you...

“What would I have been like if I wasn’t messed up?”

Book excerpt In Beth Moore’s book Get Out of That Pit, she recalls a conversation with her husband, Keith, where he queried, “What do you think I would have been like, you know,...if I hadn’t been messed up and turned to so much sin? What do you think I would’ve...

Why I think New Year’s resolutions are a bunch of bologna

Last year I did a Facebook LIVE video explaining why I believe New Year's resolutions are stupid. My belief was further affirmed by something I read in Levi Lusko's most recent book, I Declare War.  "Astronauts on the International Space Station orbit the Earth every...

I couldn’t wait for the next issue of Playboy to be released

This is a picture of me and my brother at my dad's house in Hubbard, OH. The recliner is behind us and the magazine rack next to the door. Elephant.Semi truck.Light bulb. If you envisioned any of these objects, you’ve experienced what research proves. We think in...

It’s time–a break and a book

With just six days notice, I accepted an invitation to go on a very spontaneous trip to St. John last weekend. It was life-changing.  Restorative. Reflective. Necessary.  Prior to leaving for the trip, I had already decided to unplug from social media in preparation...

Rest. Reflect. Restore.

Rest. It's referenced a number of times in the Bible. It's even given to us as a command.  Yet we seldom honor a time of slowing down, reflection, and restoration. But that is exactly what I am doing, sunshine. As Holy Week is upon us, I am taking time to rest. I am...

Lost and found

I saw this picture on Instagram, and it struck me. Not only did it resonate because of our Biblical reference to lost sheep, (which, btw, are not the smartest animals) but the story that accompanied it was most powerful.  Here's the summary: The sheep was found after...

What would you rather be?

Last year I read If You Only Knew by Jamie Ivey. The book had me shaking my head page after page agreeing too many times with Ivey's "What-was-I-thinking?" non-God-honoring moments.  Even though it's been months since I've finished the book, I...

Who’s ‘all in’ for April?

You know I am an action taker. You know I am a sharp shooter. You know I am passionate about helping people reach their goals and committing to being healthier, stronger, and more confident using God's Word. So I am going to do something different for April's...
