T.H.E. Celebration

Nightmares Can Lead to Dreams

Slam's life quote is "Sometimes a Nightmare Can Lead to a Dream".
 In this week’s interview Slam shares how the quote, as well as writing and poetry, have motivated and helped her life. It has also led Slam to her dream; working with kids in the foster care system and helping people all over.

Slam Anderson

Florida native Slam Anderson was born the fourth of five children raised by a single mother. She spent her important adolescent years in Foster Care, and knew from an early age she’d have to forge her own path. And regardless of these early challenges, she still gained admission to the University of South Florida, where she graduated with a Bachelors in Creative Writing and is now working on her Master in Social Work.

Slam is a strong advocate of ‘Youth’ social welfare, and works in the community to promote literacy, self-empowerment, awareness, domestic violence, social justice and most importantly LOVE for ourselves and for others.

Defining Success

What is your definition of success?  How has your definition consciously or subconsciously been influencing your decisions?  For many of us, success has been defined for us by our parents, our society, and our culture.  Without realizing it, we have been consciously or subconsciously striving to achieve a bar of success we may not even believe in anymore.

Let’s end 2018 intentionally by determining for ourselves, fully aware, what success means. While achievement is heavily stressed in our culture, often reflecting upon what creates fulfillment and true happiness is left behind.

This week’s experiential episode will engage you in creating a holistic perspective of success.

After listening to this workshop, you will be empowered to attain a realistic, accurate and updated vision of how you want to measure the life you’re living.

3 Star Reviews

Empathy, communication, and providing value are the cornerstones of a successful business.  In this week’s episode, I share with you an empowering tool you can use to create content, and copy language to connect with your audience.

Rather than trying to guess what your customers, audience, or community wants to hear, why not use their own words?  That’s what is at the heart of the 3 Star Review marketing tool. It provides you with a template you can use to both articulate what stands out about your product, service or project, while at the same time, addressing any objections or concerns people may have.

If you ever find yourself struggling to write compelling sales copy, grants, marketing materials, or how to market yourself, this is the episode for you!

Reviews, 3 Stars, 5 Stars, empowering, empathy, communication, marketing, success, business, customers, audience, own words, products, projects, grants, template.

Creating Your Ideals To Live By

Having a vision for your life is a powerful motivator.  Have you intentionally taken the time to reflect upon the standards you hold yourself to?  This week’s episode is an interactive workshop that walks you through the process of creating ideals and mottos you want to live by.

For example, a few of the Ideals to Live By that I created for myself are:

  1. Courage Over Fear.

  2. Creativity Over Regurgitation.

  3. Consistency Over Perfection.

Throughout 2018, these have been the mottos that have guided my life.  As we get ready to close out this year, I wanted us to take a chance to reflect upon these past 12 months.  That way we are ready to jump into 2019 with purpose and clarity.

I hope you enjoy this week’s episode!
