To be successful I have to engage my mind, my heart and my team. If I want to achieve my dream, I have to be sure my mind is on track – I have engaged all my senses and my intellect.
I also must be sure my goal is aligned with my values and that I can feel in my heart that this goal will truly allow me to live my values and to leave the legacy that is so important to me. Finally, no great thing was ever accomplished by a single person.
We all need other people to help us, support us along the way. Having a team of focused, determined and competent folks aligned and desiring to also achieve success will ensure my outcome.

It must start with a “Wow Now” vision that I can clearly sense in every way and keep front of mind as a beacon of light directing me toward my dreams. Next is to listen to my “Inner Winner” and not let the naysayers steal my dream.
I have always been very intuitive, yet I have not always listened to my intuition. Sometimes I have let others or my own insecurities lead me off track.
In Chapter 2 I realized how important it will be for me to listen to what my inner self is saying and to keep on following it no matter what barriers others may present. If I believe, I can do.
Chapter 2 also reminded of the importance of surrounding myself with a team of talented folks who can share the journey with me. Some of my best memories of success have an ongoing theme of working toward a shared vision with a “Dream Team”.
The right side of the chapter demonstrated that there will be challenges along the way and that one must always pay attention, listen to others and act in accordance with my values, again always keeping my dream in the forefront.

I have always been more of a long term thinker/planner and less oriented toward planning for the very short term. Reading the first chapter made me realize that although I may be doing right things, I have not been doing them with a sense of urgency.
Only with that sense of urgency and a change of approach can I be successful in the short term. To set up my “financial kitchen”, I need to use a recipe that will use quick techniques that also result in a delicious “meal”. I need to move quickly, but not be in such a rush that I do not follow the process. I don’t want to “rush the gumbo and spoil the roux”.

As Team Leader, it will be important for me to ensure strong communications and to keep us aligned and focused. I will work with the other CIAF Team Leaders as well.

Before Cash in a Flash I was a traditional consultant working with large and small corporations, helping them to develop their leaders and their organizations, as well as to help them adapt to changing business conditions.
My website was very linear- come and visit for information only. I considered it a place clients could come and learn about IMPACT Learning, Inc. It was not designed to be interactive or to sell products or services.
With the downturn of the economy, many of my clients were finding it necessary to cut back on expenses. Funding for external consultants was greatly reduced. I became concerned that this year would be a tight year for my business.
For a very long time, my husband and I have had dreams of financial freedom, having both the time and resources to better serve our community. We aspire to make a real difference in the lives of those who experience hunger and homelessness and also in the lives of women who have experienced abuse and need help so they can have a full and happy life.
I joined the Enlightened Wealth Institute about 2 weeks prior to the CIAF meeting. I had heard Bob Allen speak and really bought into his message of multiple streams. I became committed to working toward the goal of being an enlightened multi-millionaire in a short period of time by expanding into new areas. I had just started the learning process provided by EWI when I learned about the CIAF meeting. I love Mark's books. I felt that God had presented this opportunity in answer to prayer and I knew I had to be there. Before CIAF, I knew I had to make change, I just did not know what or how.
