I’m really tired of hyped-up programs telling you how to build a website that cost you thousands. It just isn’t necessary. So I’m always on the lookout for people who do good honest work for way less than the norm.
I found Pamela Wilson a couple weeks ago, and I like her work a whole lot. She has an amazing knack for lining up very simple things to do that can revamp your website fast.
If you’ve been looking at your website and wondering how to make it pop more, I think you might like this.

Recently, my friend and good buddy Rehana Webster, who is a world-class expert at handling trauma, met with me on the Daring Dreamers Showcase.
I’ve been watching as she travels the world – lately to remote locations deep within the rugged mountains of Pakistan (see left, where she navigates the rickety bridges over treacherous rivers!).
Rehana helps women who were raped, abused and even targeted to be killed in ‘honor’ killings come back from extreme trauma to live better lives.
Why is her work so important? She told me that, in her experience, 90% of Pakistan’s population needs help with shock and trauma release. Imagine almost an entire country suffering shock and trauma. Serious business!
Have you ever noticed how someone who is upset can’t think straight until they get their nerves calmed down? There’s a very good reason for that. They’re in survival mode – Fight, Flight or Freeze.
We’re wired that way. Why? Because when you’re fleeing an enemy or attacker, what do you need to think about other than get safe, get safe, get safe? Our F-F-F mode kicks in so we can get to some kind of safety and survive even the most horrific experiences.
But once a person gets to a safe place where she can breathe a sign of relief, the strangest thing happens: sometimes (most times) she can’t unwind by herself. She keeps freaking out, or having flashbacks, terrible dreams, or repetitive visions of what happened.
She may not be able to ‘get present,’ or may experience a level of extreme watchfulness for danger called hyper-vigilance.
If you know any vets or women who have been brutally assaulted, or people who have gone through accidents, home invasion, domestic violence, rape, war experiences … you’ve seen trauma’s effects close at hand.
Talk therapy is pretty useless – the trauma settles into the very cells of the body, and you can’t talk it out. Energy therapies like TBT, EFT, etc. are the fastest way to eliminate the shock and trauma from the body.
You may have an experience of surprise, shock or trauma in your own body – maybe you had years of teasing, or bullying, or neglect from your own parents, siblings or classmates.
So I want to invite you to listen in during my interview with Rehana as she talks about her stripped-down, efficient-in-the-field version of EFT she calls the Trauma Buster Technique.
Click HERE or on the IDYR icon to the left to listen in to our shorty (30 minutes) interview.
Rehana Webster (Founder of TBT, EFT Master, NLP Master and AAMET Trainer of Trainers) used to work with the Correctional System in NZ, has trained over 200 doctors (!!!) in Pakistan to help their patients with TBT, and has been invited by very prestigious organizations like DOST Foundation and OXFAM to present workshops for the people they help in India and Pakistan.
All that sounds pretty formal, but she’s a kick-ass fun gal who loves to laugh as much as I do!
Here are some pictures of the amazingly courageous Rehana Webster as she treks deep into the wild mountains of Pakistan to help women (and men!) in need.
Are you familiar with the power of EFT, the Emotional Freedom Techniques, to transform lives?
I’ve used EFT in my own life for all challenge and when I want to achive new goals so long now that it’s just simply a part of my life like breathing and eating.
I use it in almost every single client session, teleclasses and group calls.
Here’s a Goodie we can all use – both on ourrselves, and also forhelping our un-EFT-savvy friends, family, aquaintences, clients and co-workers: the wonderful documentary film on DVD, “Try It On Everything.”
I invite you to listen to my interview with film-maker and EFT practitioner, Nick Ortner–just click HERE or on the logo to the left.
If you haven’t seen the film yet, you’re in for a treat. I invite you to check the movie out HERE.
Ten experimenters were filmed over a period of time at a retreat using EFT very successfully on their various ills and issues–most of them severe. The majority of the participants came out on the other end vastly improved–some with a complete remission of the pain that they had had for years. One woman, who used to have to wear a back brace, now goes completely without it. Pain-free, strong and flexible.
TIOE is an enlightening and exciting journey through
This is a guest post by Alyson Stanfield, from artbizblog.com. I’ve been following her for years, and she always has great things to say.
I’ll just come right out and say it: I am tired of watching artists and arts organizations live on leftover scraps.
In my 23 years of working with fine art, I have witnessed repeatedly how frugal the arts are. Not to the patrons with the big bank accounts, but to the artists, without whom their passionate interest would not exist.
Frugal isn’t bad by itself. In fact, frugal can be good. But frugal becomes detrimental when it feeds the idea that we are not worthy of more.
Many of my clients develop this feeling of unworthiness.
For years I have been writing about how artists can show that their work has value. But I continued to allow artists at my workshops to be treated “on the cheap” by the organizers, and I admit that I was doing the same.
Then I started attending “nice” conferences for marketing, mindset, and software. Conferences with tablecloths, fresh flowers, music, and bright spaces.
I realized that the people and companies that were producing these conferences would have never treated their guests as cheaply as artists are treated. So I modeled what they did for my recent Art Biz Makeover.
If artists are to embrace an abundant mindset, they need to be treated like they already have one – and that they deserve it.
Let me share an example of how an incessant frugal mindset can harm your business.
If you’ve ever wondered about ‘having’ to exercise, ‘having’ to ‘eat right’ or ‘having’ to market or go to a J.O.B. (just over broke) – you’ll enjoy this little poke at our society’s rules.
Who said we had to be serious all the time?!?

And you also either know or can imagine what it was like for them to hear their doctor say, “You have cancer!” In truth, I’d be freaked to the limits.
But what if someone said to that person, “You know, you don’t necessarily have to die from cancer”? Wouldn’t that be something else?
Dr. Thelma Jones, who you can find at OptionsforWellness.net, has a set of answers to the frightening dilemma of cancer.
Dr. Thelma is an “integrative doctor,” using mind-body-spirit tools as well as the incredibly vast store of knowledge and understanding she’s amassed from over 35 years in the field, helping people survive cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Listen carefully to the simple 3 topics we discuss in this interview. Yes, it’s a brief interview – only 17 minutes. It’s part one of three, in which Doc Thel will share with you some very simple basics to understanding the prevention and care of cancer that defy conventional “wisdom.”

So I’m featuring a controversial doctor this week: Dr. Stefan Ripich, who says if people follow his program, in just 30 days he can help them get rid of symptoms and meds. Many would argue. Let’s see what he says about it.
REVEALED: What one item can you add to your food intake every day that will lower your blood sugars by one third? What one food is more dangerous than sugar?

This is a guest post by Victoria Moran, an inspirational and comedic speaker, a spiritual-life coach and the author of the international bestseller Creating a Charmed Life. I nabbed the post from InspireMeToday.com because I thought it was so insightful that you’d love it, too. Links at bottom so you can read more.
Everybody needs some time to shine, time to be recognized, special, admired. It’s not selfish: it’s human.
Early one Saturday I saw in the local paper that a workshop for blues musicians was scheduled for that very morning. I showed the notice to my husband, who intends to be the world’s next great blues harmonica player. “I’d like to go, “he said, “but I promised I would paint your office.” I assured him that the office could wait and sent him off with my blessing.
You can get Victoria’s book, Living A Charmed Life (and her other books) by clicking on the book cover image, or just go HERE.
He thought I was being selfless and wonderful, but I really wasn’t. You see, I’d had a lot of shine time that week—a couple of career successes, lunch out with five favorite friends, and a massage that had accounted for one, entire, luxurious hour. I was full. When you’re basking in the sun, it’s natural to want those you love to join you there. But if you’re not getting enough of your own shine time, it’s easy to be needy, whiny, and pitiful.
It can get worse than that: the shine-deficient tend to resent other people’s accomplishments and dampen their dreams. Sometimes, they sabotage the potential of even their own children because their need for personal recognition is so seldom met.

Maria Speth, Intellectual Property Protection Expert: Do You Know the Difference Between A Copyright, Trade Mark, Trade Secrets and Patents?
I’m very proud and delighted to be able to introduce you to Maria Speth, Intellectual Property Lawyer, as this week’s featured guest on Daring Dreamers Radio!
Because so many of you write and speak, and/or have unique intellectual property and materials that should be protected, I wanted to introduce you to her.
I met Maria a couple of years ago at a top-level CEO retreat where she was teaching about copyright, etc. I was impressed with her talks there about copyrighting, etc., so when we finally were able to connect, I grilled her!
If you don’ t know…
- The difference between copyright and trademark…
- The difference between Trademark and Trade Secret…
- What you can patent and what you cannot…and why…
- What every writer needs to know about copyright (whether you write a blog, book, article, etc.)…
- Whether what you hired out to be written or designed for you is actually YOURS…
- Which agency nails you $5K if you use its images without bothering with a cease-and-desist notice…
- What service does the copyright office offer photographers and poets, but not painters….
…it’s time for you to get your copyright knowledge up to date, whether you’re a writer, musician, coach, artist, photographer, speaker, poet!
- knowing what’s what can save you or your company thousands of dollars.
- you’ll know what to do if someone uses your materials,
- whether you can or cannot use someone else’s.
- you’ll know what to do from the start
…so you own the work that you hire out (Think logos [this was s surprise for me!], articles, ghostwriting, formulae, etc.)
I invite you to find out all of this (in 30 jam-packed minutes) in my interview with Intellectual Property Lawyer Maria Speth: CLICK HERE or on the Daring Dreamers Radio icon to the left to listen in.
Not to worry – it’s all easy and understandable – no lawyer-garble-de-gook on my shows!

Maria Crimi Speth deals with complex intellectual property and free speech issues, copyright infringement and trade-secret theft, and way more.
Maria says: “I assist my clients in protecting their intellectual property through preventative measures to avoid disputes, and aggressive measures when disputes arise. I communicate the complex intellectual property subject matter to my clients in a way that they can understand it and apply it to protect their most valuable assets.”
“I enjoy helping businesses succeed. My clients consider me a member of their team and a resource to help take their business to the next level…I’m always learning about new businesses and strategies.”
Wendy Lipton-Dibner, extraordinary educator and speakers trainer, sent out a newsletter today with the following question and remarks in it, and I thought it was so profound I wanted to share it with you.
So stop what you’re doing right now, and pay 100% attention – because the answer you give may change your entire life from now on.
“I’m going to ask you an important question.
The answer to this question could define significant choices you’ll make from this point forward – in your business and even in your life.
Once you have the answer, your world will change.
It could actually be the missing link to your success.
Sound dramatic? You decide.
Here’s the question:
If you had the chance to speak for 10 seconds and your voice would be heard by every human being in the world…
But then after you spoke you would never be able to speak to another human being again as long as you lived…
What would you say?
We had a blast, talking about how critical it is right now in our human journey to speak our truths, to show up and say it like it is.
With this query, Jondi made me think of an old-time mentor of mine who used to say, “If you don’t show up for yourself, how will Your People recognize you?”
