Ignore the Noise
and Move Forward
On a trip from Cleveland to Chicago during the late summer of 2011, my flight was delayed. Storms in Chicago and storms in Cleveland pretty much the norm this time of year. When my flight is delayed, I typically get a lot of work done. So, I became engrossed in the project I was working…
Definition of Paradigm Shift – Shift in Paradigm – A fundamental change in approach or underlying assumptions. Shifting our Paradigm is not only in sales but most commonly in life.

In this site, I share stories of Faith, Inspiration, and Motivation. Ignore the Noise and Move Forward does not mean being oblivious to what is happening around us; it means to turn down the volume, reduce the noise around you, and to focus on what is important in your life.
This site and other websites connected to this website are a part of my giving back projects, sharing what I have learned, how I grew in spite of continued adversity. When I was a young teenage girl, I was fortunate to work with women who lived in Europe during WWII. There I learned a phrase I have never forgotten. Don’t “should” all over yourself. Don’t grow older and say, “I should have” done this or that, make a real plan to do the things you want to do, so in your old age, you are not sitting around “shoulding.”
The greatest joy in my life has been my children. You can learn a lot from your children when you listen. My kids were always telling me to listen, and they taught me so much. As the website grows, a portion of this site will host the tools and resources needed for parenting. A lot of times, in life, we hear someone say a phrase that is so valuable – “In order to help the children, we must first help the mother.” In this site, I will change that sentence “In order to help the children, we must first help the parent.”
Today, I have successful “adult” children. I’d love to tell you it was because of me, in reality, it was because of a lot of people who were a part of the village and the understanding of my children that in all labor there is indeed Profit.

A Less Complicated Life – Yes, I read the obituaries. Enter that sentence in a google search and see what comes up. There is a link to “Want to have the last word?” I love it. Interesting to see the number of people searching for a fulfilling life, happiness vs. fulfillment, and while I was…
When I was a child, I would listen intently to Sunday sermons, and I knew who would take all day to get to the point and who would be entertaining. I remember the feeling of wanting to crawl on the floor; some sermons were so boring.
Life is what you make of it. All you need is a Heart, a little bit of Courage, a few Brains, the ability to Dream, and the Motivation to make your Dreams Happen. Sounds like the Wizard of Oz? That is what I thought. But, I sat back one day and thought, what does it…
