Group Coaching Opportunity - with +Kellan Fluckiger!

Before I interned with +On Track Tips | Wiser Sites or started working for +Weal Media, I had the life-changing opportunity to be coached by Kellan along with friends such as +Mani Saint-Victor, +Christopher Vogelmann+Grizwald Grim, and +Joy Fluckiger in a supportive group atmosphere where we could bounce ideas off each other, challenge one another, and truly find our own personal message to share with the world.

One of the single biggest mistakes that anyone could ever make in business is believing they can do everything on their own. I’m SO grateful for the lessons I learned with +Kellan Fluckiger and the crew in these weekly group hangouts. …and even more grateful to Kellan and Joy for the very personal investment of friendship and mentorship which they warmly extended.      

Therefore… my #LendAHand  shoutout is going out to Kellan and Joy because they definitely went over and beyond to lend a hand and help me get to where I am. Thank you SO much Kellan and Joy - I wish you all the love and success this great world has to offer.

And if anyone would like to learn more about the LendAHand movement started by +Chris Jenkins, please visit his original post:

The Importance of Carefully Branded Messages

I performed an experiment this past weekend and while I had fun doing it, there were invaluable lessons that I learned about branding and keeping things consistent.

Anyone that’s ever corresponded with me here in G+, Twitter, LinkedIn, or elsewhere knows that I love hearts. ♥♥ I stick them everywhere. The problem with doing that when it is attached with your corporate brand of which you’re associated is that it dilutes the overall message and tone of exchange.

For more on the Creativity that Propels you to Marketing Success, read what +Kristoffer Howes, +Weal Media's CEO has eloquently written: http://wealmedia.com/creativity-fuel-propels-marketing-success/.

Get To The Heart Of Your Story
It’s amazing when people flow into your life and you discover why. When I met my dear friend +Gail Harris earlier this year, we connected instantly. Little did I know what was in store for me down the road as a result of this #DivineConnection. 

It is my honor to be selected to host this groundbreaking episode of #CLBLive with very special guests of honor +Brandi Rarus, former #MissDeafAmerica and +Gail Harris, co-authors of Brandi’s new memoir #FindingZoe.

Brandi’s story has affirmed my resolve to stay true to the desires of my heart and never settle for anything less than God placed us on this earth for. I am truly honored that Gail chose me and that Brandi said YES to allowing me to take part in her incredible journey and share this message of living our truth with as many hearts as are ready to receive it.

If you’ve ever felt like a lone soldier out there, wanting to find your place in the world and trust in yourself and your dreams, this story of love, synchronicities, and making tough choices is for you.

I invite you to join us LIVE on Saturday, October 11 @ 10am ET for what will prove to be a touching and groundbreaking event designed to inspire YOU to get to the heart of your story, just like Brandi got to the heart of hers.

Looking forward,
CLB

MEET BRANDI RARUS
Deaf since age six after contracting spinal meningitis, Brandi Rarus could speak and read lips, but felt caught between the deaf and hearing world—fitting into neither. When she realized you don’t need to hear to live a fulfilled life, she became empowered and was chosen as Miss Deaf America. From signing the National Anthem at a Chicago Cubs game to speaking at corporate conferences, Brandi traveled the country speaking out for deaf children and building awareness of what it means to be Deaf.

She married Tim Rarus, an advocate for Deaf people whose work inspired the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act. Together, they have paved the way to bring new technologies that promote equal access in communication. Brandi and Tim live 
in Austin, Texas, with their four children: three hearing boys and the youngest, Zoe, a Deaf girl they adopted. Today, Brandi and her family are tirelessly dedicated to ensuring all children find their rightful place in our world.

Gail Harris took this project on with such passion and gave it life. This book may be about me but it is just as much her story. You befriended everyone involved along the way and created a safe place for healing. Thank you for reaffirming our belief that by doing what is right for ourselves, we also do what is right for others. Thank you for sharing my journey of self-acceptance with me and for writing this story, so that Zoe will always know how much she is loved. I know I speak for everyone involved when I say, ‘Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you!

MEET GAIL HARRIS
Award-winning writer and teacher of the intuitive process, Gail Harris has experienced the joy of adopting a child, and she brings her knowledge of the adoption process and in-vitro fertilization to this book. Gail is the author of Your Heart Knows the Answer and a featured blogger on several popular parenting blogs. She lives with her husband and son in Framingham, MA.

It was only when I began interviewing Brandi and her husband Tim, who is also deaf, that the story’s majesty truly began to dawn on me. It also became clear that Brandi and Zoe’s being deaf had everything to do with the story.

The more that I inhaled Deaf History, Culture, and learned about their language, American Sign Language, the more ecstatic I became. The more ecstatic I became the more I believed that other people would be, too—both hearing and deaf, each for different reasons. Yes, what might have been a lovely book about an adoption had morphed into something so much more spectacular, so much more important; and in my heart I felt that it was my responsibility—and honor—to give the story it’s due. So as Brandi’s life journey pressed forth reaching its highest expression, so, too, did the story that tells it.

It goes something like this: After becoming deaf  and struggling greatly, Brandi Rarus learns to love and accept herself in all her magnificence, and taking her rightful place in the world, fulfills her destiny. Her life is seen as a grand adventure, much like an ongoing play, continuously being written, directed, staged and produced by her very best, most-trusted friend, as she stars or Plays in it. We have no idea what will happen next, but it is always wondrous, and we’ll marvel at the amazing juxtapositions of people and events.

We’ll see how love can take on many guises, about the fruitlessness of assigning blame, and that what may seem horrible up close is beautiful from a distance. We’ll be reminded that life isn’t about being perfect or not making mistakes; it is, partly about doing what you believe is right, no matter how difficult. We’ll learn that true power is not won by control or manipulation but by being open and exploring life’s uncertainties, trusting in ourselves, and in something much greater than ourselves, by believing in the power of love.

We’ll understand that Brandi’s story is all of our stories; it is mine, and it is yours.
