A MATE FOR MATRIX: CYBORG PROTECTION UNIT

By S.E. Smith (New York
Times/USA TODAY Bestselling Author)

Matrix Roma is a member of the elite Zion military Cyborg Protection Unit. Matrix gets
more than he bargains for when his cyborg partner, a hybrid Wolfhound named K-Nine,
goes missing and ends up finding a mate for Matrix in the middle of a deadly mission
on an unknown planet called Earth.

STRAY

By Susan Grant
(New York Times/USA Today Bestselling, and RITA Award Winning Author)

Interplanetary Marine Lt. Lukas Frank has a lot in common with a street dog named
Bang-Bang; they both started off as scrappy orphans fighting to survive—and beat the
odds. Things change when Bang-Bang leads Lukas to starpilot Capt. Carlynn Riga. The
tough war hero learns what it means to surrender — his heart. Lukas’s struggles with
PTSD threaten to tear the three of them apart, but nothing threatens them more than
Marketing by GetMyBookOutThere.com 15
For General Release from August 13th 2016 onwards
when Carlynn goes missing on a mission. Can a scarred marine and his unlikely canine
partner find Carlynn and bring her home, or will he lose everything he’s finally found
worth fighting for?

SPARK OF ATTRACTION

By Cara Bristol (USA
TODAY Bestselling Author)

Memory: intact. Cognitive function: enhanced. Emotion: erased. After becoming a
cyborg, Captain Dante Stone didn’t think he’d ever feel again, until a traumatized
young woman and a ball of synthetic fur named Sparky helped him to love.

STAR CRUISE: STOWAWAY

By Veronica
Scott

Cargo Master Owen Embersson is shocked when the Nebula Zephyr’s ship’s cat and her
alien sidekick, Midorri, alert him to the presence of a stowaway. He has no idea of the
dangerous complications to come – nor does he anticipate falling hard for the woman
whose life he now holds in his hands. Life aboard the Nebula Zephyr has just become
more interesting – and deadly.

THE REAL DRAGON

By Pauline Baird Jones
Emma Standish didn’t think her day could get any worse. Her dad is marrying his boss,
her dragon suddenly came back talking and typing, and it’s her fault the Earth, or at
least ten square miles of Texas, is going to be destroyed. That’s what happens when
you forget something very, very important. Luckily for her, she’s got the love of her
life that she can’t remember and her dragon by her side. Who needs to worry when
you’re having a day like this?

STARDOG

By Laurie A.
Green

Navigator Taro Shall has a mission no one wants – find a way to eradicate snakes on a
starship. He never expects to find the answer to his problem in a charming street
vendor named Adini. His already unusual mission becomes more complicated when he
suddenly acquires an adorable StarDog that soon sweeps him and Adini into the maw
of a brewing insurrection.

SPIKE

By Alexis Glynn
Latner

On Tinsel Town Live, I will ask them to tell me all about this incredible project.
Let me know of any questions you might have for these stellar authors. Here are a few things I plan to ask them:
 pauline2
How did the idea of pets in space come to you and how did the project evolve?
What is so special about companion animals?
What is science fiction romance?
What made you choose to benefit a charity that helps our military/Veterans?
Tell us about Hero Dogs! (http://www.hero-dogs.org)
mobymidorriI am also excited to learn about the sketches of the pets by Nyssa Juneau, she was the independent artist for the sketches for each story, and get the background on the cover artist and why the anthology is dedicated to him and his own dog. https://www.facebook.com/vikkasb?fref=ts
We will talk about this and so much more when we meet the authors of Pets in Space, Veronica Scott and Pauline Baird Jones on a special episode of Tinsel Town Live on Monday, November 7th at 6:00 pm Pacific time.

Vicki is the author of several books including 7 Ways to Close More Sales with Confidence and a new one on the way called Evict the Bully in Your Head.

Vicki records two podcasts which are broadcast live on Blab every week. On Mondays at 7:30 p.m. Pacific it is, He Said, Red Said. On Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. Pacific she does, Vicki Fitch Live: A Fresh Perspective. On the first Wednesday of each month, Vicki’s topic is from the “Evict The Bully in Your Head” series.  For that episode, Vicki’s guests are examples of people who have dealt with pain, drama, trauma and have come out ahead, not giving in to the “Bully.”

One of her current passions is her new course. The Rock Star Guide to Gettin’ It Done, which should be available any day!  She loves helping people to get more done in less time by group tasking.

When she isn’t busy selling, training, blabbing, writing, and she has gotten it all done, this rock star loves to collect giraffes from all over the world, she is an avid scrapbooker and loves being active. (I am not surprised about the active part! I am tired just writing this.)

Jennifer Quinn (@JennyQ)

No stranger to Tinsel Town Tonight, Jennifer Quinn joins me once again for her turn “on the virtual couch.”  Last time, Blab was undergoing a major overhaul and everyone was experiencing technical difficulties. The quality of that video was shameful. Although, we tried as best we could to keep going and we had a lovely conversation, Jenny was happy to return for another try, she is such a trooper!

In case you are just getting to know Jenny, here is a little bit about her:

IMG_0907Jenny likes to hike, walk & bike along the river where she lives on the Boise Greenbelt. She loves to dance, sing karaoke, read, connect with people, and hang out with her family. She says, “I like to not cook.” (Something I can relate to for sure!)

Jennifer Quinn is the Host of “The Daily Q Show” on Blab where she interviews people who demonstrate excellence in their field. She loves being a livestreamer and can also be seen on Periscope, MeVee, and Snapchat. Jenny loves the live video format so much she wrote the book on it, literally! You can download her “Free Livestream Guide” HERE! http://thedailyqshow.com/live-streaming-guide/

I will talk to Jenny about livestreaming and it’s effect on personal growth, the pursuit of excellence, and her insights on self-development. I’m looking forward on getting the details from her latest adventures!

Black Belt Selling Tinsel Town Interview Featuring Anna Scheller @SchellerAnna

Posted on April 18th, 2016 by & filed under Everything Miz Meliz, See the Video on YouTube, Tinsel Town Live 2016, Workshops and Webinars

Did you know that when my kids were small, I practiced Karate? Yep – sparring, grappling, the whole thing. I was even a sempei (assistant instructor!) I had a pretty good round house kick, too! Hi-yah!

I also have a little bit of a background in sales. I was a retail sales manager and I studied business and marketing in college. When I worked as an executive administrative assistant at a large bank, I attended sales management training. Interesting. You are wondering what does that have to do with Karate, Miz Meliz?

Well, I never thought the two would come together until I met my new friend, Anna Scheller. Anna is an author, speaker, trainer, and coach. She is the host of Sales Mastery on the Amazing Women of Power radio show. She just published a new book and is launching a new training program. Guess what the principles of self development and entrepreneurship Anna is gifted in. Go on, guess!

Everyone who signs up for Anna’s newsletter between now and Friday, April 29, 2016 will have a chance for a free seat in the program.

Everyone who signs up for Anna’s newsletter between now and Friday, April 29, 2016 will have a chance for a free seat in the program. (Click this photo to sign up!)

If you know Anna, you might not have guessed that she has a Black Belt in Taekwondo. Having a background in sales training, she naturally combines the two in her new program, Black Belt Selling. (I know, I gave it away in the title of this blog post! But you will be glad I did, because I am willing to bet you will remember that and want to Google Black Belt Selling!)

Don’t miss this episode of Tinsel Town Tonight! Especially if you have an interest in martial arts and entrepreneurship or sales mastery. I will interview Anna live on Tuesday, April 19, 2016  at 6:00 PM, Pacific Time.

Discipline, Confidence, Strength, and Leadership. I believe these are tools that we all should know. . .

That’s what this is about, baby!

Anna Scheller

Anna enjoys reading, spending time with her family, and practicing taekwondo.

13000220_10201841645158472_1022078884881937407_n

“I am passionate about helping people achieve their dreams by growing their income through sales training and business coaching.”

In May 2016, Anna will be leading a four week program called Black Belt Selling. In this program, she helps people develop the qualities they need to push through the blocks that keep them from closing more sales.

Everyone who signs up for Anna’s newsletter between now and Friday, April 29, 2016 will have a chance for a free seat in the program.

Have you ever thought the things you are passionate about, the hobbies, sports, or interests, would help you in life and in business?

If you have a story like this,please share it. I know having a little experience with Karate sure helped me when I was raising my three sons. A lot of the confidence I built in those classes is still with me today. It was an amazing experience for me.

Tinsel Town Tonight with @CoachJennie @KarenGCoaching @tenminitt Audacious and Genius

Posted on March 15th, 2016 by & filed under Everything Miz Meliz, Tinsel Town Live 2016

When they agreed to be on my show, Tinsel Town Tonight – it seemed like the date would never get here! And now, it’s time. I am proud to have the great opportunity to interview these fine women on my show and introduce them to you!

Help me welcome two of the best and most sought after business coaches on the inter-webs, The Audacity Coach – Coach Jennie and Karen Graves – The Marketing Your Genius Coach! Together on Tinsel Town Tonight, my head is spinning! This is going to be a blast!  Also, with three coaches on a Blab together, you are bound to get some insights and maybe even some free coaching, right?

Show Notes

Karen Graves – Marketing Your Genius

12837564_10208030216088573_936747417_o

Karen’s  favorite pastime is Blabbing. She also love playing games — like game nights with board games, cards and dominoes.  She is a business coach who gets geeked out on helping coaches who are just starting out use the simplest and most direct approaches to getting clients and building profitable businesses. She teaches her clients how to make money doing what they love doing.

Jennie Mustafa-Julock – The Audacity Coach

11696557_10208773064944561_1638682924_n

I’m glad it’s a small world, as they say, because for whatever reason, I was in the right place at the right time when I met Coach Jennie! Jennie recently relocated to the West coast and currently lives in Los Angeles. She has also lived in NYC, Boston, Washington, DC, Florida, and Ohio. But, we met on Blab.

Jenny loves real Vermont maple syrup , her new Mini Cooper, her  iPhone, her  cocktail shaker, her boxing gloves, and her  Barbra Streisand record collection. She shared a long list of her likes and dislikes with me, and that helped me to get to know her a little bit, but most telling is that she always refers to her wife as the most wonderful and most important influence in her life. That tells the most about Jennie. She is genuine and caring.

Her bio says even more about her from a professional standpoint,

Jennie Mustafa-Julock, The Audacity Coach, helps driven individuals on the brink of something spectacular figure out how to astonish the heck out of themselves. Coach Jennie doesn’t subscribe to the gentle encouragement coaching thing.  She is known for her signature cathartic shoves. And her BS-free approach to so-much-more-than-life coaching has been the catalyst for her clients to launch new businesses, publish their first books, negotiate career leaps, and adventure the world. If you’re itching for a more fulfilling, adventurous, remarkable life but you’re not quite sure how to make it happen…you need Coach Jennie.

1BEFDT7

We will talk about Coach Jennie’s free online community called the Audacity LAB (League of Ambitious Badasses) that connects hundreds of these inspiring people with others who also live Audaciously, as well as all the things that she and Karen talk about on their Blab shows. (Yes, even when it’s off the record!)

Hollywood Hot Spots

He says he is a “foodie” so, I asked Lion what are his recommendations for the best places stars go to in Hollywood. Here is what he said:

“For food – it’s the Dandy Lion Diner in Hollywood. Great mom and pop place.

For drinks, it’s this classic old German bar in Glendale – The Red Lion Tavern. Mmm, that place makes me roar!”

 

courage_disney quotes

“Roar” by Katy Perry

I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
So I sit quietly, agree politely
I guess that I forgot I had a choice
I let you push me past the breaking point
I stood for nothing, so I fell for everythingYou held me down, but I got up
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, you hear that sound
Like thunder gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready ’cause I’ve had enough
I see it all, I see it nowI got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire
‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
You’re gonna hear me roarNow I’m floating like a butterfly
Stinging like a bee I earned my stripes
I went from zero, to my own hero

Dudes of Disruption on Tinsel Town Tonight #DoDonTTT @DoDTalkRadio @TommySpero

Posted on February 15th, 2016 by & filed under Connecting People, Everything Miz Meliz, Tinsel Town Live 2016

When I met Tommy Spero on Meerkat one quiet windy afternoon as I sat glued to my computer monitor switching back and forth between online live streaming formats, I had no idea that I had met my “cosmic counterpart!” It turned out we “clicked” (as they say) instantly for a reason. Both having published books about our own feelings and experiences with transformation – we have a similar message, similar values, and have dealt with similar struggles in life. One main difference is, that I am doing my coaching and ministry solo – – and Tommy has a tribe. A true pack. Tommy is one of the Dudes. The Dudes of Disruption.

1BC4BEE

The Dudes of Disruption Take over Tinsel Town!

Up until now, I have barely gotten to know the dudes. I don’t think I have built their trust yet. I haven’t had long discussions with them as I have with Tommy. Alls I know is, they are super nice, highly intelligent, and very soulful. And, I wanted to know them better, so I invited them on the show, Tinsel Town Tonight.

If you like talk radio and Blab-ing about current issues that matter, you will want to hear what the Dudes have to say. I think men like their show because they are down to earth man’s men who engage with their audience, and challenge them, yet not in a threatening way. Women like to listen to the show (speaking for myself here) because they offer insights into the male psyche, they are entertaining, and most of all – they value the opinion of women and place themselves in a position to really listen to the female voice. (Or, offer thought provoking reasoning on why they don’t agree with some female opinion.) The show isn’t by any means anti-female or male exclusive – and although it seems to be geared toward the male audience –  it is a show for every “disruptor.” In the same way a GQ or Maxim is directed towards the male audience, I enjoy flipping through one now and then – and I usually learn a thing or two! The Dudes of Disruption are, well, dudes – but the show is for everyone and they are consciously about being inclusive.

The dudes are “Disrupting the Automatic.” They are stirring the pot and making a difference in the way we think and act. And that’s a good thing.  Like my own message, theirs is one of positivity and graciousness. The Dudes of Disruption have a higher purpose. I like that.

Who Are The Dudes of Disruption?

He wants to grow the audience and inspire more people to hear the message of “disruption.” When describing the show he says, “It is an opportunity to awaken to what isn’t working, discover what is possible if there is change, and being inspired to take action.”

For example, Nick, Greg, and Tommy organized the Dudes of Disruption Men’s Group NYC, where they lead men to realize their potential and how their power can serve them.

Tinsel Town Tonight – How The Stars Align in 2016

Posted on February 2nd, 2016 by & filed under Everything Miz Meliz, Intentional, Life Coaching, Tinsel Town Live 2016

I guess I have a lot of audacious goals and the stars are aligned for me because everything is happening so fast. I would love to talk about this on my show, Tinsel Town Tonight. Te topic will be, “What Makes the Stars Align For You?” Join me right here for the LIVE broadcast at 7 PM tonight! SCROLL DOWN FOR ALL THE DEETS!

 

My January Recap

I was invited to speak at #ConnectHer16 which has been a hope of mine for some time. I started my coaching practice and sought help in how to really bring it home – and I feel really good about meeting the right people at the right time. I want to book more guests on my talk show and I am loving making the connections. (Gretchen Rubin “liked” my Tweet today about being featured on my show!) I started my online sales of my artwork, huge step for me!

 

 

 

 

 

 

My (official) words for 2016 are Create, Connect, and Sparkle!

 

 What are your words? Have you set an intention for the year? Do you use One Word, or other ways to stay focused?

Do you need some accountability to help you reach your goals? If you want, you can email them to me and I will follow up with you. Send your word/list to me at MizMeliz@Yahoo.com with Accountability in the subject line. You will get a message from me in the summer and just before the holidays to see how you are doing.   By way of holding myself accountible, I am sharing my goals for this year here on my blog. I will give you all the details for the first thing I am developing, my coaching practice. In future posts, I will tell you all about the book I am writing and the story of why I am so obsessed/enamored with mandalas. Here it goes…putting it all out there!

 

My Projects for 2016

I have three main areas of focus that I plan to complete this year.

        • I will put into action a business strategy to open and maintain a viable coaching practice. In other words, I am open for business! And I am working hard to put systems in place to make it wonderfully successful.

 

 

 

        • I will self-publish my 2nd book, More Than a Feeling, available on Amazon in October 2016. Let me know if you want to be on the pre-order mailing list.

 

 

 

        • I will make products available for purchase online with my artwork. The project for this year is 100 Mandalas. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you have seen at least a dozen mandalas I have drawn and/or colored. So, if you like the vibrant colorful designs as much as I do – you can snuggle up with your mandala throw pillow, wrap up in a mandala scarf, take out your mandala notebook, and pour yourself a cup of coffee or tea in your mandala mug – and make it a Miz Meliz Mandala Moment!

Coaching Practice

Part of my preparation for my strategic plan is to thoroughly define what I aim to do as a coach. Just saying I am a Life Coach is not enough. What sets me apart? What makes me unique and what will help people trust me to help them?
I dug deep. I took time to reach into the core of what I do best, how I do it, and why I am called to do it. I came up with some powerful information. It’s stuff that makes my heart feel funny. The stuff you want to call your mom about.

Here are some titles I am considering for myself:

Emotional Well-being Transformation Specialist 

Roller Coaster of Life Coach

Emotional Train Wreck First Responder

Emotional Transformation Guide

What ever I end up calling myself, I vow to be your guide to living a happy, carefree, self-fulfilled, and hopeful life. 

I can help you:

  • Find your self 
  • Find your voice 
  • Find your way

Are you feeling:

  • Lost
  • Forgotten
  • In a fog
  • Confused
  • Stagnant
  • Unmotivated 
  • Stretched
  • Complacent

Are you:

  • a Caretaker
  • a Parent
  • a Patient
  • a Student
  • Going through loss, or a major life change
  • in need of a confidant, friend, or cheerleader

If you are:

  • Tired
  • Bored
  • Depleted
  • Depressed
  • Anxious 
  • Stressed 
  • Over worked
  • Grieving

And if any of these statements fit you:

  • I have been surviving this way for so long that I don’t even recognize myself.
  • The person I once was, the person I am on the inside, is dying to get out and live again.
  • I am just going through the motions, getting through the day, the week, the month… I am not even sure what it is that I want anymore.
  • I have been helping, serving, raising, assisting other people for so long, sacrificing my own plans and dreams, that I think I have forgotten who I am, I don’t even remember what I aspired to be.
  • I feel like my goals don’t matter.
  • It is too late to live my dream life.
  • I spend more time thinking about my secret happy place to get away from the daily grind than imagining any type of future for myself. At least I know I can’t fail at it.

I know how you feel!

I have personal experience with all of this. I always thought my dream was to get married, have kids, please my parents, have a job, save money, and that would be what would make me happy. That is as far as I could see for myself when I was in that time of my life. Well, I got there. It was great. I felt happy. I did what I set out to do. Then I realized that I didn’t aim high enough. I had everything I wanted and I wanted more. Just when I started planning a future for myself, thinking about soaring with the wind, flying free and being my best self, the shit hit the fan. Everything fell apart. My life was shattered. And then it hit again.  And again. And again. And again. I began to believe that my life was shit. It didn’t matter that I still had a home, a husband, a family, a job. I risked it all and lashed out, acted out, freaked out, and I began having panic attacks, anxiety, depression and chronic pain. 

I dealt with destruction, drama, disease, and death. I had marriage issues, health issues, mental issues, fitness issues, to the point of having issue issues! I got the help I needed. (There is a lot packed in that little statement. A ton. It wasn’t easy and it took time. I couldn’t do it alone. I got the help I needed.) 

Through all of this, on the outside I seemed fine. Nobody knew the misery I was putting myself through on the inside. I had to make a change.

I looked within myself and I found her. My inner sweetheart. My inner child. And she still had dreams. She still had ideas and excitement and joy. She waited for me. She will always be there. She has new ideas all the time. All I have to do is listen. We grow together. We always keep learning, growing, experiencing life and all that it is meant to be. 

If you have been distracted, dismayed, or depressed to the point of despair, I can help you find your path. 

You can go from:

  • Heartbroken to heartwarming
  • Self-sabotaging to self-confident 
  • Sacrificing to successful 
  • Martyrdom to Masterful
  • Misguided  to Motivated
  • Victimized to Vindicated
  • Torn to terrific
  • Lonely to lovely
  • Depressed to dazzling 
  • Fallen to fabulous 
  • Broken to beautiful 
  • Painful to playful
  • Jealous to joyful
  • Hollow to happy
  • Tired to inspired
  • Anxious to Amazing 
  • Feeling awful to being amazing
  • Go from “merely existing to “here to be awesome!”

Yes, you can still be who you are; a helper, an assistant, a parent, a caretaker. You can serve others without sacrificing yourself, without losing your own passions, desires and needs.

I will show you how to live with intention, insight, and inspiration.

I will help you find your voice and sing out joyfully. You will find yourself and you will sparkle and shine when you live the life that you are meant to live. You will achieve your dreams and turn your goals into plans. That fog will lift and you will feel yourself glowing with energy. 

You will be:

  • Gracious 
  • Joyful 
  • Happy
  • Hopeful
  • Carefree
  • Stress free 
  • Satisfied 
  • Fulfilled
  • Alive 

You will learn to:

  • Listen to your inner sweetheart not your inner daemons (screaming banshee or bride of Frankenstein.)
  • Mind map instead of brainstorm
  • Plan instead of dream
  • Think positive 
  • Be proactive 
  • Know what you want and what you stand for and do what you believe in

If I am your coach, we will take an adventure together:

  • Experience for yourself how far trusting yourself can take you. 
  • Find your thing. Your passion. Your core value. Your inner strength. Your true desires. 
  • Look deep within. Look far ahead. Envision all the possibilities. Map it out. Get going. Love the life you want. 
I can’t tell you how I will do it or when it will happen for you. That is up to you. It is different for everyone and I know countless ways to activate the things that are most important that will work for you. Just show up, that is the first step. Every coaching experience is different, but I am very close to everyone I meet and I will always be here for you. I have only served a few clients in the past year or so, and I was not sure that I have what it takes to be an effective and sought after coach. I needed some feedback. I asked people I have coached for testimonials and suggestions to improve my coaching practice.
The response was so affirming!
I listed them below…I am so humbled.
I am really motivated to get my coaching practice re-activated. I already have courses (referred to as “workouts” below!) and mini-retreats scheduled.
My calendar is pre-loaded on Trainer.ly for one on one coaching sessions:

Testimonials

  • “I love the way you speak. You’re so calm and clear in everything that you say. You listened to every word I had to say and you were very helpful with my situation. I like how you tied in stories of your own to give me examples and tips that would motivate and inspire me.”
  • “I really appreciated how easy it was for us to schedule a time to talk – you are so great about being flexible with your time. And being able to have sessions over the phone was such a blessing for a busy mother of two!”
  • “You have a very good memory and were able to connect dots from our different conversations. I also truly felt you were sincere – when you told me my work was meaningful and valuable, I believed you and it made me stop devaluing what I did and see my work in a new light.”
  • “It’s funny because with you I was able to verbalize what I really wanted but never said out loud because it was such a hopeless pipe dream – I wanted the job that I had 12 years ago back. It seemed impossible, but once I said it and really let myself want it, I ended up getting it back!! Coincidence? I think not!”
  • “You are very in tune with such a vast variety of people, from all walks of life. You truly care about others, and I always feel good after visiting your group:)”

I met Jonathan on my favorite live streaming ap, Blab.im.  He is a nice person who is helping people navigate the business of social media and content creation.  What does that mean? Well, it means that Jonathan is doing for entrepreneurs and businesses what I do for people in my life coaching and mindfulness classes. We both like to help people…to mentor, motivate, and inspire.  Jonathan shows integrity as he speaks from the heart. He is passionate about live streaming and connecting people. That is why I like him. You will too!

Who Does “Social” Work For?

Jonathan Trip makes social work for you! Meet him on Tinsel Town Tonight when I interview him about social media, live streaming, start ups, and cooking!

Jonathan says, “I love cooking – but can’t bake to save my life.”    We will definitely talk about that! Father of five, Jonathan works from home and balances sharing the responsibilities of taking care of his little children with his wife, while he conducts his online and live streaming business. He loves coffee and he needs it as he works tirelessly to achieve all of his intentions.

He has a background in property management services, non-profit organizations, and small business. He feels that his experience has given him the ability to personalize project management from inception to execution.  He strongly believes in leveraging motivation and mentorship to create diverse professional teams while leading by example.

Meet A Genuine Original on Tinsel Town Tonight @WinKellyCharles @TenMiniTT #TTT

Posted on January 6th, 2016 by & filed under Books, Everything Miz Meliz, Quotes & Notes, See the Video on YouTube, Tinsel Town Live 2016

I enjoyed preparing to interview this lovely lady who is a profound influencer. She is a standout personality in the live streaming community. I am so pleased to have met her and I know that one day, I will meet her in person and we will be great friends. We still have so much to discover about one another, but I know we have a few things in common. Both podcasters and live streamers we also have the same guilty pleasures, sugar and chocolate. We both have published books, although hers are much more creative and inspiring. We have both struggled with the loss of loved ones.

The main difference between us is that am I free to move about and I have control of my muscles and my body does what I want it to for the most part. My new friend does not have this luxury, having been born with cerebral palsy. Yet, she manages to do some amazing things that I do not consider physically possible for me to do, like snowboard!


This list of positive statements sums up the kind of inspiration that I think about when I contemplate my friendship with Win Kelly Charles:

Be YOU.
A genuine original.
Find your voice and make a difference.
Don’t forget where you came from, but never lose sight of where you are going.
Believe in your gifts.
Cherish them and explore their possibilities.
Make mistakes and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
Be brave and wild at heart.
Embrace all the things that make you unique.
Be passionate about the things that matter to you.
Practice kindness and compassion.
Be a hero to someone.
Demonstrate character and be a good friend.
Become someone that you will be proud of when you look back on your life.
And remember that all the quirky things about yourself, that sometimes you wish were different, are really the most special.
Because YOU are the real thing.
-Louise Carey

I would like to introduce you to Win Charles!

Win will be my first guest on Tinsel Town Tonight in 2016.
