Volume 6 - Issue 30

Before discussing today's Picture to Ponder photos and queries, I want to give a quick "quick heads up" for the business builders among you - Last week I told you about my coach Mollys Gordon's program for finding your "Just Right Clients" and included a link to her complimentary MP3 download, chock full of information and useful tools. Scroll down below the SRQs for a link to the download page. There is a special offer which expires 7/31.

Also, for the aspiring writers considering the possibilities of having a book published, my friend Lynn Serafinn did a webinar interview last week which is available for complimentary download. She is doing another webcast tomorrow, 7/29, where you can have your questions answered. More information is down below the Goldilock's information.

Now on to Today's Photos -

Today's Photos Story -
I haven't taken many pictures the past few weeks, so I was trusting that the "perfect" featured photos for today would "show up" in a search through my photo folders.

I could hypothesize why these two became the photos of choice, share the "stories" they may be telling and, for today, I think I'll leave the "stories" for you to create, if you so wish.

In addition to each of the photos individually, and what they could possibly be expressing, you might wonder why I've chosen to feature two such very different images in the same issue. I'll let you create a "story" of commonality around that also.

Suffice it to say, on my end, I see the two working together aesthetically in terms of artistic composition. I see/feel definite similarities in textures, despite one being a delicate, soft-petaled flower and the other hard, rough wood. There is also repetition of some of the linear patterns in both pictures and even colors that are similar.

Self-Reflecting Queries -
I have, obviously, combined two very different subjects as a unit for this issue of Picture to Ponder. In reflecting on that:

I wonder, are there people in your life who are so different you would never think to be interacting with them at the same time, or in the same room? If one or more persons flash into your mind, I invite you to look further to see where there might be some common ground, or complementary characteristics.

Do you see anything? If so, are there empowering opportunities for everyone that might develop from that, if you put them and you all together?

And are there other elements in your life - any projects - to which you could apply the same, or similar, criteria?

As always have fun playing with these photos queries. Then please share your experiences with us in the COMMENTS section of the blog. I'd also love to read any of the "stories" you made up about the images.

For Business Owners interested in Getting More Clients -

Molly Gordon, my personal coach, did an outstanding teleclass call recently to introduce her new Goldilocks Strategy for Getting Clients that Fit Just-Right. She is offering a 33% discount on the already very reasonable program. This special expires on July 31st.

On the fr*ee call which she entitled "5 Proven Steps to Getting More Clients Even if You're Allergic to Biz" she went into depth on 5 strategies for doing just that. Chock full of suggestions and details on implementing these steps, you can get an Instant-No-Obligation Download of the MP3 recording of the call at Goldilocks Preview. I highly recommend listening to this call if you are looking to expand your business.

For Writers and Those Who Dream of Writing a Book -

My friend Lynn Serafinn from Spirit Authors would like to know: "What is YOUR burning question about taking your writing or book project forward?"

She will be answering questions, asked by participants when they signed up for the FR*EE webcasts for writers and authors, aimed at answering your questions about writing, publishing, book promotion and beyond. The question answering WEBCAST 2 is on Thursday, July 29th, at 3 PM EDT.

WEBCAST 1 was last week. Lynn's very special guest on the first was the "Get a Book Deal Coach", Stephanie Gunning. Steph talked about how to "Transform Your Spiritual Wisdom into Marketable Books."

There is still time to participate "Live" on tomorrow's webcast and/or get the replay as well as a fr*ee download of WEBCAST 1.

To read more about these fr*ee webcasts, and to register your place, see BOOK WRITING.
