Knowledge and the Entrepreneurial Journey

by Linda on March 9, 2012

“A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.” Khalil Gibran Are you the type of person who acquires knowledge for the sake of knowing? Or are you the type of person who acquires knowledge in order to put it into action to make improvements in your life? Either option is okay depending on your desired outcome.  If you’re the type of person who strives to make improvements in […]

We Survived 9:02 am

 Healing Through Teamwork

healing through teamwork

Twenty years ago last week on April 19th at 9:02am an horrific tragedy struck Oklahoma City, Okla. I purposely waiting a week before posting because emotions still run strong on that anniversary every year.
I choose to ponder my own emotions on that anniversary and spend time thanking God I was one of the lucky ones who responded to the tragedy by helping with the rescue efforts.
I spent thirty some hours a week downtown inside the perimeter after working my usual fifty hour week at my full time job. I had special clearance from the Oklahoma City Fire Department’s Critical Incident Stress Debriefing Team to assist the other rescue workings in managing their trauma as they worked tirelessly looking for any signs of survivors.
Each night I went home to watch the updates on the news in order to stay abreast of any new discoveries with the rescue efforts and the perpetrators.
I managed my home life as best I could during that time. I repeatedly assured my children of my safety and reviewed emergency plans already in place and new ones we developed as a result of this horrific event.
I secured special clearance for my oldest child who was a teenager. He said he needed to see ground zero for himself. He had the option to work along side us and chose not to. It was enough that he was able to walk inside the perimeter which had become by that time, hallowed ground and it put his mind at ease to see how many people can come together to help one another.
Rather than dwell on that event, I’m posting an unrelated video today to remind us of the importance of team. People from all over the country responded to the OKC tragedy with prayers, donations, volunteer efforts, letters and cards.
Their efforts were healing for those of us who lost some of our friends and tried to pick up the pieces of our lives. It drove home the true meaning of teamwork and provided great honor to the loving souls whose memories we celebrated last week.

For anyone who is hurting, for any reason, please accept a heartfelt virtual hug to help you heal and Peace be with you my friends.

With Much Love,

Phases of Growth Entrepreneurs go through phases the same as Seasons go through phases.

Motivational Monday-Kindness

March 2, 2015

Kindness Can Be Overwhelming Today is dedicated to anyone who has ever been down on their luck, feeling hopeless, discouraged or unwanted. Sometimes life is difficult. Sometimes life presents us with challenges we would rather not have to face.
