Assignment for Jake :: Wide Open

A few week’s back Jake Johnson had us sharing any photo we wanted in our Assignment for Jake Community and I took the opportunity to share the following. The concert was a huge success … we had well over 70 people, mainly families, in attendance and the church was filled with love and music!

WOW … so much going on over here! One of the benefits of having a Celtic Musician as a client is you get to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in style. I am not one to request photos with ‘celebrities’ … or have photos taken of me in general. This photo is waaaaay more to me. Geoffrey is not only a musician I respect, he and his wife have entrusted me to create their social media strategy to expand Geoffrey as a musician (http://geoffreycastle.com) and launch his wife Shannon’s AMAZING art online (http://www.shannoncastleart.com) … together they are Castle Art & Music. 

Over the course of this last weekend, Geoffrey released a new CD through a record label taking his electronic violin into the realm of Electronica as part of Fractal Music Works and the result is AWESOME … here’s a link to the single they performed at the sold out Kirkland Performance Art Center on Saturday evening. I will be sharing concert photos soon.

Then on St. Patrick’s Day, I and my camera joined him for the CLASSIEST St. Patty’s Day Celebration I’ve ever experienced at Bake’s Place in downtown Bellevue. It was at intermission I and the band members worked together to create this photo. Again, I will be sharing more photos soon. My memory cards have been on fire!

The second photo I am sharing is the flyer I created for a benefit concert I am organizing with Geoffrey Castle performing … I am including my public share so you can get the full spectrum of what it is about:

Music Matters!

As some of you may know, I was a foster kid from age 10 – 18 … the first 10 years of my life were quite traumatic. Music was how I processed my emotions, I sang in choir everyday from age 10 on and it made all the difference. Kept me focused in school, united my energy in song with my classmates … it was better than any therapist I was sent to.

Since the day I graduated high school and became a ‘successful’ adult, I have had a dream of being able to give back. This project is a DREAM COME TRUE!!! And I don’t dream small … this performance will be legendary!

I am Jenuinely inviting YOU to join me in song and dance, in supporting an amazing cause of raising the astonishingly low 45% high school graduation rate of foster kids, and bringing my dream to reality.

A huge heartfelt thanks goes to Geoffrey Castle for being such a spectacular musician and a powerful stand for youth to have musical expression in their lives … not just by supporting this concert, he travels to high schools around the US for special assemblies. Yep, he’s that kindof wonderful too.

Can’t encourage you enough to watch this video to see how much of a difference the special folks at Treehouse make for local foster kids: http://bit.ly/1kFgkCB

This event is hosted by the loving members of my Family Covenant Circle at East Shore Unitarian Church and it is through community that 100% of the proceeds go to support foster kids having access to musical expression!

I would also like to thank the Landmark Self Expression and Leadership Program for providing me the tools and support to create this concert. It is through my participation at Landmark that I have redefined what is possible in my life!!!

Love.

April 2014′s Intentions

The month of March here in the Pacific Northwest came in like a lion and roared the whole way through. I was so busy everyday, those relationships that didn’t empower me … fell away effortlessly. My body was pushed to the level of 60+ hrs work/week, years ago when I used to work similar hours as an environmental geologist all my health conditions made the experience PAINFUL. The worst that happened was I got REALLY sick with the flu and my pain flared up for two days … an absolute miracle! This month I upped my game, to dizzily high heights, had me out on the skinny branches of leadership/life and surprised myself in the process. When I read the completions for March, I am left speechless and I know April will be more of the same … good-bye little me, hello leader.

As I step into April … I let go of:

Being afraid of asking for help.
Not sharing my life with others.
Financial scarcity.

I intend to manifest:

A team supporting my creations.
Date nights.
Strong Abs.

March 2014′s Completions:

  • Continued Physical Therapy … re-aligned spine and hips.
  • Hosted Music Matters! FB Event http://bit.ly/1dYiJj4
  • Became Social Media Strategy Leader for Global Team Management and Leadership Program.
  • Began mentoring a client to create a Network Marketing Training Community.

Assignment for Jake :: Quote

This time around Jake requested we give him a quote, then generate an image … this was my quote:

“The way we speak to our children becomes their inner voice.”

~Peggy O’ Mara

Pretty sure the photo says it all. My daughter and I had a blast staging this one together, the expression is perfectly as she delivers it every time I say those words. Good times!

Love.

March 2014′s Intentions

Phew … 4 days into March this time, better than last month! WOW, February was expansive and just 4 days into this month and I have already doubled what I achieved. I have officially broke through letting my ‘reasons’ get in the way of action. I have gained so much on my metaphorical plate, my reasons don’t fit. By that I mean … I am living into my word, not acknowledging my reasons for truth, and taking actions that support what I am committed to. How? By embracing my team members I became close to during our Team Management and Leadership weekend. I am not only supported by a powerful group of ~30 in Seattle and Portland, I have a committed colleague and a coach. I have created All Mentoring Matters as my Game in The World for my year long participation on TEAM 1 and already have two partners toward the 6 I am creating to fulfill on raising funds to launch the business. There is no ‘just getting by’ goin on over here!!! As my shares for the Assignment for Jake Community show … life is filled with LOVE. The only intention for February that failed to be fulfilled was my Intentional Planner in PDF format and it was just the other day I uncovered what was stopping me … the design didn’t match with how I’ve been using it and after a revision that will streamline the planner, I will re-publish and create the PDF. I can’t wait for what March brings …

As I step into March … I let go of:

Relationships that fail to empower me.
What I believe my body is capable of.
Playing smaller than I know myself to be.

I intend to manifest:

An intern.
Powerful contribution to local foster kids.
Greater community.

February 2014′s Completions:

  • Transformed my personal conversation around stress.
  • Healed acne/red sores on face, that I’ve had since I was 15 yrs old.
  • Started Physical Therapy … learning ‘no pain, no gain.’
  • Created Music Matters! FB Event http://bit.ly/1dYiJj4
  • Invited to join a private community of amazing Ladies who are transforming their health.
  • Invited to join Pixativity Directory.
  • Began sharing content creation posts on Just Jenuine Creations.
  • Powerfully attended my first Team Management and Leadership Weekend in Orange County, CA.
  • Became Website Accountable for Pacific Northwest TEAM..
  • Won Performance Skit Award at Landmark Seattle Center Assisting Meeting.

Love.
