I sang The National Anthem, acapella, at a rodeo, for a capacity crowd at the incredible Hart Ranch in South Dakota. For a second, I thought I'd be less nervous if I were riding the bulls...but naaaa.
I didn't botch it. Many have.
But I figured, if this amazing person, and so many others, can face cancer without flinching, then I ought to be able to sing a few notes in key and remain lucid enough to tell about it.

Wow. Another one I had to read over and over. We all react differently from our own stories and life experiences. What did you first think of when you read this quote? 🤔
N’oubliez jamais que les nuages ☁️ passent . Soyez fort dans l’adversité et la douleur car elle vous révélera . Ne doutez jamais de vous parce que votre chemin croise les mauvaises personnes même si parfois elles s’avèrent être de votre sang .. Votre Âme s’est incarnée dans cette vie et si elle a choisi ce chemin c’est qu’il vous apportera. La Magie est partout pour qui sait voir 💎💖. Si les larmes coulent n’oublient pas que tu n’es pas seule. Il est des diamants qu’on aimerait protéger mais parfois la seule chose qui est en notre pouvoir c’est de laisser grandir tout en tenant la main.
Force et courage/ Amour et tendresse 💪🏻💎✨❤️
Wait? Can I tell you something?
Maybe you’ve toyed with life coaching, but you haven’t made up your mind?
I want to warn you — life coaching with me with challenge, unearth, scare, and exalt you.
It will challenge the core of your beliefs, it will rock your boat, it will open you up and examine aspects of your whole being.
I’m not a going to ‘beat around the bush’ - because that’s not who I am.
I will encourage, support and honour you the whole time.
But all I ask is for you to show up and do the work. Because life coaching isn’t about me, it’s about you.
If you’re keen, send me a message or head to the link in my profile.
I work with women all over the world who are willing to dig in and move mountains.
If you have pain, how you sit or stand may not be a contributor at all to your pain. 🤔

Quick trip to Abuja earlier this week ... slightly threw off my routine but totally refreshing engagements.
One of the highlights of my trip was bumping into Ladi Balogun the Group CEO of FCMB Group and Chairman of Tenet Investments.
We talked about investing in businesses in different industries including agriculture, energy, education and healthcare...such wealth of experience! Most importantly, we talked about things he wishes he knew earlier or his advice to the younger folks:
1. READ more: he wishes he had read more widely from early on and still believes reading is key to unlocking a wide range of knowledge. ---- 2. Education is not everything... even an Ivy League education... ATTITUDE is key. What good education gives you is mostly COMMUNICATION skills both written and oral and thus generally puts you ahead in getting good opportunities. ---- 3. Your business must be SOLVING a problem. Simple! --- 4. Do not mess up your chances of raising additional funding for your business by mismanaging the first round of funding. Your REPUTATION will be adversely impacted in the funding space. ---- 5. Have the #COURAGE to go into less popular sectors that may not look super attractive now but have real growth potential e.g Tourism, Pet care, etc. Especilly those that are not reliant on FX. ---- 6. Identity your #STRENGTHS and #WEAKNESSES as an individual and even a society and outsource accordingly. You maybe be deficient in strategy and planning skills but 💯 in execution. ---- 7. And finally live within your MEANS - 'Ikoyi' living when you clearly have no solid source of income instead of planning your life style within your income. This is largely driven by pride. Your decisions should not be driven by emotions but by #facts . ---- I adviced him to write a book because some of these nuggets and many more need to be recorded and passed on. Interestingly he is learning to code as he believes that in this #digital age, especially as an inventor of business owner you should know as much about as you can something that would have a huge impact in the future. Never stop learning. ---- #Lifelessons#Network#Engage#Learn
Do you remember that Superhero that was within you when you were a young child?
Do you remember dressing up... Using your Super Powers...and the Boundless energy?
Do you remember telling who ever would listen that when you grow up you were going to be..... What happened to that little person, with those superhero powers and boundless energies?
Life happened ...... Life came along and dumped a big pile of sh*t on that little person.... Now don't feel victimised, life does this to every little super hero.... You are certainly not the only one.
But guess what... That super hero is still there, buried under that big pile of life... Those super powers are still within you... And yes, so is that boundless energy.... You just need to dig deep, find the courage and resilience to find those golden nuggets of power and energy... Dust off the layers of life and become that person you told anyone who would listen all those years ago, that you would become.
Yes it will be difficult, it will be painful at times.... But you know what, it will also be fun, empowering and it will be a journey of discovery and adventure... A journey of empowerment and love, gratitude and growth.
Now, you may need some assistance along the way, a guide or a coach to support you, champion you, encourage you ... Someone to share their experiences and knowledge, someone who has already experienced their part of that journey already.
Why would you need that person, because as you have already discovered, life has a tendency to dump big piles of sh*t on us and that stuff is hard work to get through.... But with an experienced traveller by your side, assisting you to avoid those big dumps, assisting you to avoid the same mistakes over and over... Which in turn, means you will have more energy, time and resources to re-discover that super hero that you were always destined to be.
Choose to become that Super Hero with in you, because everyone needs a Super Hero in their lives... You have super powers that can make all the difference.... It is up to you to choose if you wish to discover them.

Today in 1944, this was the front page—following the July 20th plot by Claus von Stauffenberg (pictured), Henning von Tresckow, and Hans Oster to assassinate Adolf Hitler and remove the Nazi Party from power. On this day—the day after the failure of Operation Valkyrie, Claus von Stauffenberg and his co-conspirators were executed by firing squad.
P.S. ...and on this day, also, FDR was nominated for a fourth term. #courage#leadership#worldwar2
