Proof Doing What You Love Leads to Success

I LOVE finding proof that doing what you love leads to success, both in pleasure and also financially speaking. After all, we have to pay the rent, right?

Todd Geer is a local videographer and he of course likes to take photos, but he doesn't make much money from his stills.

Well, back in 2008 he took a photo of Loveland's beautiful Fourth of July fireworks display--without a tripod. He admits it isn't his best photo, but it is still an inspiring image.

He posted the photo online ( and Author Gish Jen saw the photo and asked for permission to use it on her book, "World and Town" and the publisher gave Geer a nice check ($2500) for the rights to it! Talk about putting it out to the Universe (or Cyber-Space) and money flowing in!

You can see the result on Amazon! Congrats to both Todd and Gish!

Philanthropy on a Shoesting

Have you heard about Marc Gold? He has been traveling around the world, particularly in Asia handing out money to people who need it. His donations change lives, often for less than a dollar. For Marc a very large donation is $500!

That is quite different from most philanthropic organizations. Marc has seen a single US dollar literally save a life and so is very aware of the power of small amounts placed in the right hands.

An inspiring story just in time for the holidays!

He encourages others to follow in his footsteps. You can read stories of other Americans who have been inspired by Marc-- visit

Gratitude Project

I am super excited to finally be able to let the cat out of the bag...this project has been so much fun and so fulfilling...and for this next part I need YOUR help TODAY, Wednesday, Dec. 15

I have been honored to be asked to be a co-author of an incredible new book: "The Gratitude Book Project: Celebrating 365 Days of Gratitude" and we are going for an ambitious goal--to become an Amazon best-seller!

So if you are looking for an inspiring book, either for yourself or as a gift for a loved one, please consider this book that will provide that inspiration day after day--all year long!
And, feel good about your purchase for another reason: 100% of the proceeds from the Amazon sales go to 4 worthwhile charities! That's right, 100%--we don't get a dime!

The goal is to get as many sales as possible on Wednesday, Dec. 15 in order to hit that best-seller mark. Why is that so important? Well, best-seller status will get us a lot of traction and help us earn more money for these worthy charities.

So who gets the money?
We have selected four non-profits to receive the proceeds from our sales on Amazon:
  • ASPCA for the prevention of animal abuse
  • FeedingAmerica
  • Make-a-Wish

Abraham-Hicks Guided Meditations

Gosh I've been away a long time! Spending less time on the computer and more time doing other things--guess that's not a bad thing!

When I went to the Abraham-Hicks session in Denver recently I was pleased to hear that they were going to be coming out with guided meditations...I do much better with walking meditations or guided meditations if I'm going to be sitting. So I have been happily waiting, knowing they will arrive at the right time.

Law of Attraction in Art and Politics

My city is a wonderful place to live. I love all the art that we have here. I love how supportive the community generally I find it so interesting when a lot of negative attention is focused on a particular piece of art.

A couple of years ago it was a sculpture entitled "Triangle"...theoretically a permanent installation. Critics didn't like it or didn't like the location. This piece was moved and is still part of our permanent collection in town.

The current controversy is about an exhibition at our museum. Apparently one of the prints that is on display has been deemed to be offensive to some...either because it offends their religion or their sexual sensibilities...or both.

I'm not really here today to comment about the content of the art, whether it is "art" or as the detractors claim, "pornography", I'm really reflecting on Law of Attraction in action.

It is ironic that this exhibition would largely have gone unnoticed were it not for a single City Council member who brought it to the attention of the Council and thereby the newspaper and the City at large.

This council member failed to get a discussion on the work on this week's agenda, so he has loudly proclaimed that any citizen can speak about any topic, on the agenda or not...therefore, you guessed it, it is now anticipated that there will be lots of folks at tonight's council meeting "commenting" on this piece.

Why am I saying this is LOA in action?

Because in his pushing against this print he has brought lots more attention to it. More visitors have been to the museum and more financial contributions have been received. Rather than getting the print removed and having fewer people be "subject to it" he has actually increased the number of people who are not only aware of it but who have seen it!

The lesson to be learned here is that when we see something we do not like then we should turn our attention elsewhere. Like a dog seeking your attention, if you turn your back it will quiet down.
