Clara Capano

Master Ninja Coach and Instructor

I am a speaker, trainer, and business coach/strategist. I just published my first book: Find Your Focus: 52 weeks of Clara-ty. I am passionate about helping others get clear on their goals and purpose and being focused so they can achieve those goals. I want people to also make sure to take care of themselves and make time for a life.

When I am not working, I love doing Yoga or Kickboxing, spending time with my family and my son, an I like to travel. I am a beach girl so anytime I can get to the ocean I am happy.

I would love to talk to you about finding your focus, goal setting, time/balance, self care, and managing distractions when we meet on Inspiring Adventures with Miz Meliz. I am interested in what inspires you and I look forward to sharing my story with you.

I am inspired by my son – he helps to keep me focused on what is most important; Larry Kendall, Garrett Fry and my Ninja Family – because they believed in me an my talent; My family – unconditional love and support; for business – Jim Rohn, Darren Hardy, Tony Robbins, Robin Sharma, and Brene Brown.

Come with Me on My Hawaiian Island Dream @auroraeaqua @BubblrMedia #sponsored

Meditation to me is taking some time to visit my “happy place.” I learned years ago about mindfulness and visualization as a way to manage pain and stress. This practice has stayed with me my whole life and is now a part of who I am. Combining aromatherapy with visualization is another favorite way to relax. Lately I have enjoyed using Aurorae Aromatherapy Spritz.  (I was provided with a full size bottle of Aurorae’s NEW Hawaiian Island – Coconut Pineapple – Aromatherapy Spritz to review from Aurorae Aqua LLC. I was under no obligation to write about it on my blog. All opinions are my own. Photos and details are used with permission. See my disclosure for more information on why I post articles like this on MizMeliz.com.)

Sometimes I light a scented candle, sometimes I use essential oils. Now, I have a new spray from Aurorae, the same company who makes my favorite yoga mat. It’s made with natural products and can be used to freshen my yoga mat, spray in the air, and it is even safe to use as a body spray. I love to spritz with it when I get home from a long day at work and driving in traffic. Today, I am going to use the description of this body spray as my inspiration for a guided meditation. You can read it, listen to the audio, or watch the video. Just make sure you are in a relaxed setting and not driving or someplace where you need to be alert. Sit back and close your eyes. Take some slow deep breaths. Let a smile fall across your face as you bring yourself to a happy and secure moment in time. Think of an exotic waterfront location. Bali, Hawaii, Fiji…the soft scent of coconut and pineapple wafts in the air.
 The sun may be rising – high in the sky – setting, or perhaps a storm is rolling in. On every continent, natural wonders and essences of good feeling are abound if we open ourselves to recognize them. The sights, sounds, and scents of nature can draw us gently back – to our center; to the core of who we are meant to be; to our most fundamental, authentic, and best selves. Aurorae Spritz, and aromatherapy spray that will uplift and inspire you…

Aurorae’s NEW Hawaiian Island Coconut Pineapple – Aromatherapy Spritz !
Aurorae Aqua, a division of Aurorae, recently introduced their line of aromatherapy sprays made with natural witch hazel, essential oils and/or fragrance oils. The sprays are intended to evoke feelings of restful days at exotic waterfront locations. The first scent, Aurorae Hawaiian Island Afternoon,  emits a light coconut pineapple scent. It is available in a decorative 8oz bottle for $19.99  
This item’s unique formulation provides the user with a light  island smell and feel, without oily residue on skin or clothing.  It can be used it at home, at the gym, or on your way to and from your favorite activity. The Aurorae Hawaiian Island Afternoon Spritz is the perfect size to fit in your bag.

Reflections on This Week’s Theme: Begin #AYearinBloom

Posted on August 31st, 2017 by & filed under A Year in Bloom, BubblrMedia, Everything Miz Meliz, Inspiring Adventures, Intentional, Mindfulness Guidance and Coaching

The first week of September is usually the beginning of the school year and marks a new start for me. Every year around this time, I begin planning for the holidays and then the new year. Fall is on the way here in the United States and even though we won’t get a sense of real season change until late October, we consider Labor Day to be the end of Summer.

Nowadays the schools where I live begin in early August, so the one I work at and the one my son attends has been in session almost a month. Yet, everything feels like the beginning. Roman is a senior in high school now and this week he attended an annual event the school hosts called, Senior Sunrise. The students come early to school and gather on the athletic field, eat breakfast together and watch the sun come up. At the end of the year, they have a Senior Sunset which will be the last time they meet as a group. It is a very special way they memorialize their unique bond as a senior class.

This week is my own sunrise in a way. I am at a dawn in my adventures at BubblrMedia. I am launching a new show, “Last Night’s Show with Miz Meliz.” I am going full steam ahead with my plans for which I have been preparing all year. I am excited and I feel ready. I guess I am much more like my son, a senior in high school, than I thought! He has a sense of confidence and readiness at the beginning of this year that I have not recognized in him before. It is an exciting time indeed!

Begin is one of the cards from the Deck of Affirmations Inspired by A Year in Bloom by Melissa Reyes 2017

Moms Save with Groupon and Get Conference Ready @Groupon #sponsored

Save with Groupon and Get Conference Ready

There are a lot of conferences that Moms and Dads attend around the country these days. We often combine a little business and family time at these events. Especially when the conferences and conventions take place at a resort or vacation destination. (This is a sponsored post, see my disclosure for details on why I post articles like this on MizMeliz.com.)

I’m excited to offer you some tips and some super discounts from Groupon that will help you prepare to have an amazing and productive time on your next conference or family getaway!

 

Here are some tips to be conference ready that any Mom or Dad can use to help keep costs down and get organized:

 

Pack light and plan to dress comfortably – it isn’t about what you wear, it is how you wear it that matters. You will make an impression with your smile and attitude, not your wardrobe. Bring one accessory or garment that defines you or that is your “signature color” and wear it every day.

If you are speaking or meeting with clients, be sure to bring a sport coat or suit jacket. Even if you wear it with jeans at a casual conference, it will speak volumes about how you take the position and the experience seriously.

Bring business cards. At tech conferences or new media expos you really only need a few because you can hold it up and everyone you meet can snap a picture and gather your contact info that way. I have my snap code on a sticker that I put on the back of my lanyard so I just flip that around and after every selfie I am in, I ask new friends to add me. If they aren’t on Snapchat, my Twitter handle is on there, too.

For networking conferences like the one I am attending in August, ConnectHer Media 2017, I will be bringing lots of business cards. I also made up some post cards because I am representing my new company, BubblrMedia. At big Expos and trade-shows I highly recommend bringing stickers or useful gadgets with your logo and contact information printed on them. Everyone loves a freebie and you can get these made up at a very low cost online.

Since I will be leading a round table presentation at ConnectHer, I am printing up some One Sheets. I get all the printing done online at VistaPrint. They are quick, great quality, and always have great deals.

Know your elevator speech as well as you know your address! Practice this and memorize it. Keep it to five (or less) key points. Be clear in your delivery. Focus on one main thing you want to present when you attend a conference. Of course you know more and do more than that, but when you meet someone for the first time and you have just about the length of time as a ride in an elevator to tell them about yourself – make it the best part of your life story!

Bring your own water and snacks. If you are traveling long distances, by air or car, and staying in a hotel – you will benefit by having some snacks and bottled water with you. Remember, you can’t bring bottled water on a plane. But if you can stop by a Target along the way after you land, you can get a lot more for your money.

Don’t forget to bring your vitamins and health supplements! Eating right while on the road and on vacation is hard to do. By planning ahead and staying on your regimen, you will be at your best to present and/or learn as much as you can while attending the long sessions and meeting people at the conference. You will also have plenty of energy to keep up with the night life, and/or the family activities you have planned in the off time.

After the conference is over, be sure to send thank you cards to the people you met who made an impression or who helped you in some way. If you were hosted or sponsored, be sure to send some something special from 1800Flowers as a thank you gift. A sincere gesture goes a long way.

A wonderful way to thank someone is to send a video message on social media. I like to do this on Twitter using the #VideoReplyDay hashtag or on Instagram to publicly thank people for the nice things they do.

Have a great time and take lots of pictures! Don’t forget to post them to your social media accounts and tag the conference and use their hashtag! I will be wearing my BubblrMedia sticker everyday at #ConnectHer17 in Las Vegas! I can’t wait!

Inspiration

Two years ago, when I was first invited to attend ConnectHer15, I was so impressed. I sat at a table near the back of the room. I thought to myself, “Wow, these speakers are great!” I had just finished my book and I was fairly confident that I wanted to be a leader in this community.

I signed up as soon as I could to be a speaker the following year. I was selected to present at a round table discussion at ConnectHer16 which was bigger and better than the year before. Again, I sat at a table surrounded by women I have gotten to know through the years, thoroughly inspired. I loved leading a round table (I did the presentation on using video to promote your business three times that day!) At the end of the day I walked up to the gorgeous stage, I sat on the plush purple sofa, surrounded by pink balloons and I imagined myself being on that stage. I took a few selfies up there.

I believe that when you envision it, you can make it happen. I am excited about being on a panel about video at ConnectHer 2017! I am just starting to wonder, who and what will inspire me there for the next step in my journey?
