The GREAT Edward here,Jimmy Roos

Happy Friday!

Welcome to this installment of…

Share Your DREAM Friday!
It is with great pleasure that I bring to you today’s Special Guest Dreamer The GREAT Jimmy Roos.

I have had the blessing of connecting and sharing with Jimmy Roos on Facebook since May 2009.

He is a husband and father of three daughter. Currently living in Georgetown, Guyana South America he is originally from Namibia Africa.

With his believe that life is meant to be lived through experiencing it, Jimmy strives each day to be thankful for the blessings and miracles that each moment brings.

On the path to his greatness, Jimmy realized that his beliefs and mindset were what was holding him back when he meet a mentor John Kehoe and read his book Mind Power Into the 21st Century. Through this Jimmy discovered that he had a passion and gift to encourage other people to live their best life. With this new knowledge and wisdom in hand, he continued on his journey, but something was still holding him back from the fulfillment of his true vision that he knew wad there for him. Even with this obstacle in front of Jimmy never gave up. Continuing to surround himself with other successful people and study the biographies of those who came before him, Jimmy now realized that his next step in the journey is to put himself out there, be vulnerable, and take the risks needed to fulfill his dreams.

Please join me in celebrating Jimmy as he takes one step forward in opening up as he shares his dreams with us today.

The GREAT Jimmy Roos – Share Your DREAM Friday

My Dreams
Hi everyone, this is Jimmy Roos and It’s a pleasure to share my dreams with you here on SHARE YOUR DREAM FRIDAY. First, I want to give a BIG THANK YOU to the GREAT Edward for creating this platform and making it available to all of us to share our dreams. Now, I have not just one dream but several dreams. When I was a toddler I dreamed of becoming a famous singer. As I grew older this dream died a slow death and was supplanted by other dreams. However I have learned, you can never say, never! Just look at Susan Boyle who at age 47 realized her dreams.
But coming back to my current dreams…

The first dream, and the one I’m working on right now is to continue inspire, motivate and help as many people as I can reach their dreams, through writing on my websites and talking on my radio show. I want to eventually branch into television and touch even more people. It has taken me more than 8 years to get to where I am and I still have a long way to go to make this dream come true. But with every new day I see myself get better and take bigger strides towards my goals. This is not only a passion, but also a mission, because I was once in the position where I felt everything was hopeless until someone, showed me that my life can change, when I change. But as I alluded to earlier I have other dreams.

The second dream is to create an energy company that will create cheap energy from renewable sources and thereby lower the prices we pay for electricity. This dream was born mainly because of the high cost of electricity in my home country Namibia as well as the neighboring countries, who are all depending on South Africa for their electricity supply. However, South Africa itself is struggling to meet its own energy needs, much less the needs of other countries. So, there’s a real need for an innovative way to produce cheap renewable electricity. As we have seen with the crisis in Japan, nuclear energy is not necessarily the answer and leads to other problems.

My third dream is to build a theme park with rides in my home country Namibia, which would provide entertainment and fun for both young and old.
All of these dreams will affect and change the lives of many. But these are big dreams and big dreams take longer than other dreams, just look at how long it take Walt Disney to realize his dream of Disneyland.

In the past I tended to do things on my own, but I have realized that I needed to step out of my comfort zone in a big way and engage people more. The GREAT Edward is a big inspiration to me in this regard and there is lots I can learn from him. So, those are my dreams. I thank you all for watching. And once again a big THANK YOU to the GREAT Edward for making all this possible.

Happy Friday!

Welcome to this installment of…

Share Your DREAM Friday!
It is with great pleasure that I bring to you today’s Special Guest Dreamer The GREAT Meetu Singhal.

I meet Meetu on Facebook through our mutual friend and Special Guest Dreamer Alumnus Avram Gonzales. We shared comments on back and fourth and got to know each other through his content on his InspirACTION series. We personally go connected after she was featured on Avram’s InspirACTION Series – Don’t Take NO For An Answer sharing how she was stepping outside her comfort zone and living her dream life. I knew at that time that her message was meant to be heard and shared with as many people as possible, so I invited her to share here with each of you.

She is a wife, mother, and professional with a passion for Technology and Social Media.

Originally from India, she moved with her family to Las Vegas about 3 years ago.

Determined to help with a financial contribution to her family she went on a journey that would take her to the life of her dreams.

Please join me in celebrating Meetu as she shares her story and dream with us today.

The GREAT Meetu Singhal – Share Your DREAM Friday

A passion that transformed into a Journey towards Delivering Happiness

Hello fellow Dreamers! First of all I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Edward and Julie for giving me this opportunity to share my Dream on this precious platform. Before I jump on to share the Dream I am living, I would like to share a bit about myself. I hail from India and I now live in Las Vegas along with my husband and our 5 year old son. I met The GREAT Edward on Facebook and love what he is doing. I am truly passionate about technology and Social Media. My professional background is a mix of technology and marketing. By qualification I am an MBA and for over last eleven years I have been working specifically on web and mobile related technologies. Essentially, I have been helping small businesses to leverage technology and social media to impact the world around them.

Let me start sharing a story with you that will convey how my Dream started with a passion and then later on evolved towards a Journey on route to Deliver Happiness.

Part -1 In The Beginning… The Idea”
It so happened that due to some changes in my Visa status here in the United States I lost my permit to work in the beginning of 2010. Sitting idle and not doing anything is not in my nature (more because if my mind stays empty, it becomes a Devil’s workshop :->). So to spare my family members with the trouble of bearing the brunt of my empty mind, I decided to start writing a blog. I launched http://meetusinghal.com and started blogging about what I am passionate about – Technology and Social Media. I would blog just enough to keep me occupied. The entire year of 2010 was a great year for me as I found time to learn more and more about technology and social media. It was tremendous learning. By December 16th 2010 got my work permit again and that’s when I thought that I need to go out and apply what I have learned through the entire year. Also there was certainly a need to contribute financially towards the family income. I got a Golden opportunity to apply my skills when I saw a job opening with Zappos , an online store specializing in clothing. The biggest advantage with Zappos was that it is based out of Las Vegas where I live. I applied for the job and waited. No one called me for an interview and I got an epiphany – since the job is for the position ‘ Facebook Marketing Assistant’ why not I launch a facebook campaign to demonstrate my skills and grab the attentions of the recruiters. This way I could at least get an interview call.

Part -2 Campaign “Zappos Hire Me”
I launched the campaign called “Zappos Hire Me” on http://zapposhireme.com and forwarded the domain to http://fb.com/zapposhireme . I also created a back end or the support website at http://goo.gl/FqHYM. Then I reached out to my closest Facebook friends / contacts to help me to spread the word. And within a few hours Terry Crosby launched a group called – Meetu needs our help – all the members of the group ( some 70 Facebook friends ) became the campaigners of the “Zappos Hire Me” campaign. They formally posted testimonials on my page wall that you can see here. Several of my friends posted on Zappos’ wall and endorsed my candidature. It was magical to see scores of posts being posted passionately everywhere on Facebook all just sending one message – Zappos Hire Meetu – Words cannot describe the feeling that I experienced. It was surreal. I never expected so much love and support coming from so many people. It was incredible! A similar campaign also started on Twitter. It was surprising to see that Zappos’ Twitter handle @zappos_service started acknowledging and appreciating the tweets but Facebook page kept totally silent and deleting the posts. Actually the official Zappos’ page started marking the posts as spam that I realized later when my official page was blocked from writing, commenting and liking any post on their page.
After a few days into the campaign I called Zappos and no one from recruitment spoke with me, however, the receptionist informed me that I would get a call and someone will let me know the status. I got an email after few hours letting me know that I was over qualified for the position and there was not a match. I was totally disappointed but then again came a Ray of light when my very good friend on Facebook, Dillon Rhodes suggested that I should continue the campaign and react in line with Zappos’s 10 core values.

Cutting the long story short, I continued the campaign for 2 weeks. I covered Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Youtube. All throughout my social networking friends ( Zappos Hire me Campaigners ) rallied for me . It became so famous that Local News channel Fox 5 covered my story on news cast, you can watch the interview from the bottom of this web page. If you are interested in knowing more details of the campaign then you can watch the series of YOUTUBE videos from HERE , I have narrated the story in my own funny style :- )

I finally got the call from one of the senior recruiting managers at Zappos after 2 weeks and I was informed that they are closing my file permanently. They also told me that no one is suggesting that I stop my campaign but from their side no one will listen or respond. So this was it. As you can imagine that there is no fun in saying something if no one is hearing, I decided to put an end to my campaign.

Part – 3 After The Campaign
Around the same time I got several Interview calls (The Fox interview made me a bit famous) and I also got the news that the Delivering Happiness book from Zappos’s CEO has now become a movement. I became a part of the movement and took the Delivering Happiness pledge from here. I also got a contractual job here from an organization based in Las Vegas. In true sense the campaign turned me from a ‘person’ to a ‘happy person’. Under the normal circumstances I would have consider this experience as a set back as Zappos refused to interview me but since I already started moving on route to ‘Inspire and be Inspired’ I did not feel disappointed even for a moment. The fact that Edward saw my campaign and suggested me to share my dream on this great platform is one of the examples of the real impact that campaign has made. I would like to take this opportunity to thank one and all who helped me in making this campaign larger than life. In true sense, I became a much happier person and started my own journey towards DELIVERING HAPPINESS.

Happy Friday!

Welcome to this installment of…

Share Your DREAM Friday!
It is with great pleasure that I bring to you today’s Special Guest Dreamers The GREAT Paul and Linda Gaume.

I had the great pleasure of meeting Paul and Linda back in September 2010 through the Home and Small Business Network while working on a secret blogging project together. What great spirit and love they have for each other. It beamed through in everything that they shared. In February 2011, I had the blessing of meeting them in person at The Million Mind March Wisdom School. WOW! What they shared online just poured out when I met them in person.

They have always lived a life of service to others in everything that they do while raising five children. They are now blessed with four grandchildren too. They spend each day lifting the spirits of others helping them to live the life they were born to live.

Please join me in celebrating Paul and Linda as they share their dreams with us today.

The GREAT Paul and Linda Gaume – Share Your DREAM Friday

First and foremost we want to thank Edward and Julie from the bottom of our hearts even though we have not yet met Julie she is a star shining brightly in the heavens for all she does. These two people are Giants among us all and one of our dreams is they are recognized for all the good things they do…

Moving on we had the privilege of meeting the “Great Edward” at the last wisdom school and it was without a doubt our pleasure to have met such a warm, caring, sharing, and loving individual. Edward actually was able to hear our dream as it unfolded before Paul at wisdom school, but let’s start a bit further back….

We have been married for 28 wonderful years and when most people meet us they feel the love we have for each other and it’s that love we are now learning to share. We raised five beautiful children and we have four wonderful grandchildren. We have been in the industry of helping people pretty much most if not all of our lives. To give you some idea Paul as been a Fireman, Policeman, EMT on an ambulance service, and City Councilman. While Linda was a dispatcher for the ambulance service, Chiropractic Assistant, and she has been in various jobs in customer service. So as you can see we seemed to have gravitated towards helping people.

We, like so many others within ten years either way of our ages, have been working towards that elusive retirement. We, like so many others, believe in the American Dream of going to work fresh out of school, working for 30-40 years and retiring with income from our pension and social security. What we didn’t see coming, as most didn’t, was the crash of the housing and stock markets. This caused the devastation of many of our friend’s retirement funds to the point where they were starting to either go back to, or contemplate going back to, work just to survive.

This is straight up wrong…it should not be this way for us…it is a pain we feel on a daily basis because of friends we have or articles we read and we are not going to settle for it…we are a very hard working community of people, some people refer to us as Baby Boomers and that’s fine but there are approximately 75 million of us out there. So we figure why not help each other to not only survive, but to thrive, and discover financial freedom.

We do not believe in coincidences, we believe things happen for a reason, even though at the time we may not know the reason, but one does exist. The truly amazing part of what we just said happened just recently and we’ll share it with you. There were moments late at night when we talk about our dream as to how its going to unfold, but as of late we no longer have those dreams because we have given the task up to someone greater and more powerful than us and allow him to show us the way…he only asks that we maintain our belief in him, and in our faith our dream will become a reality. Understand this first and foremost we continue our story…For whatever reason Paul had the opportunity to share our dream during a portion at wisdom school and Edward approached us with the idea of sharing our dream with the wonderful, loving community in which he and his lovely wife Julie live. We simply could not pass up the opportunity to share with Julie and Edward’s community and we thank both of you for asking us to share.

At this point we are not sure if our dream could be more characterized as a movement rather than a dream…but we believe for a movement to be fully realized it must start with a dream…we hope you are able to fully visualize our dream as we try to allow it to unfold in this video. Please feel free to visit our blog at http://paulandlindagaume.com/ and if you’re interested in experiencing our 7 Day Boot Camp which is created especially geared towards helping you to grow within yourself we would be happy to send it to you. Also you’re more than welcome to contact us by email or phone for any questions or concerns you may have, and if your interested just click on “How To Video’s” and you will be taken to our training site where you can learn some things for FREE our gift to Edward and Julie’s community for allowing us to share our dream. Have fantastic day and once again thank your Edward and Julie from the bottom of our hearts and may your dreams be fully realized….

Happy Friday!

Welcome to this installment of…

Share Your DREAM Friday!
It is with great pleasure that I bring to you today’s Special Guest Dreamer The GREAT Dr. Erica Goodstone.

I had the blessing and pleasure of meeting Dr. Erica Goodstone about a year ago on Facebook through the TSA Tribe Syndication Association .

She is an amazing woman with a heart for the healing of the relationships of men and women of the world!

With a PhD. from New York University she is now living on the beautiful east coast of Florida, she is a Coach, author, and advocate for the relationships of people everywhere.

In July 2008, Dr. Erica took a course on social media and found this great medium to connect with many people who were looking for her.

Please join me in celebrating Dr. Erica as she shares her dream with us today.

The GREAT Dr. Erica Goodstone – Share Your DREAM Friday

I first met Edward Elliott in TSA, Tribe Syndication Association, about one year ago, reading and exchanging personal comments on each other’s blogs. He quickly became one of the leading syndicators and shared how he did it in a video. Then I watched a series of videos he and his lovely wife, Julie, created about their own dream processes. I was touched by how authentic and open they were. When Edward invited me to share my own dream, I was excited and it took me a few weeks to begin to crystalize how I might share my dream. Before actually speaking on the phone to Edward, I had a picture of him as a struggling entrepreneur, putting himself out there in order to create a business. But when we actually spoke, I discovered that he was well educated, an engineer, and had already created and sold a million dollar business. Edward has created Dream Friday out of his own dream to make a difference in so many people’s lives. And I am delighted to participate in Edward’s dream by sharing my own dream.

What is My Dream?

I am Dr. Erica Goodstone, a Spiritual Relationship Expert Helping Men and Women Heal Through Love.

My dream is to create a Global Spiritual Relationship Coaching program to help men and women heal their bodies, their relationships and their lives.

Who has inspired me? I have been most inspired by powerful women.

As a child, adventurous, athletic and daring, I loved reading my favorite Kay Tracey detective stories. As I grew older, I was really influenced by 3 books. When I read The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan, I could not grasp why women were so unsatisfied. To me it was natural for women to seek their own self-actualization. That’s why I resonated with The Fountainhead, by Ayn Rand, in which she portrayed strong and independent women. My dream was to marry a powerful man like the main character in her book, Hoard Roark. And when I read The Women’s Room, by Marilyn French, I was deeply disturbed by her belief that men had all the power and women were just victims.

When I met and shook hands with First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, I was deeply honored. When I got a glimpse of the beautiful, renowned actress, Elizabeth Taylor outside the theatre on Broadway, I was so excited. And when I watched the Miss America pageants, I dreamed of one day being so beautiful and famous.

Inspirational women and stories about them, set the groundwork for my life’s work, but my favorite movies were NOT about powerful women. Two movies that touched my soul, and made me cry for hours, even days afterwards, were Wuthering Heights and Splendor in the Grass. Both were stories of intense passion, undying love, and the anguish of not being able to satisfy the desire for intimacy. In my favorite movies, love always prevails.

But it was a professor in my doctoral program, Dr. Mary Calderone, who set the tone for the focus of my life’s work. I once heard her say “Love and Sex go together.” That hit me like a lightning bolt. You have to realize, this was during my experimental years, the time of the sexual revolution, when spontaneous sexual encounters, even with strangers, became the norm. But rarely were we learning how to love.

My Ph.D. dissertation was about Margaret Mahler’s theory of mother-infant bonding and how adequate or inadequate bonding, in the first 3 years of life, might affect our ability to create intimate adult love relationships.

The other great influence that shaped my life’s work happened one week before my dissertation orals. I attended an Association for Humanistic Psychology conference where I observed my future teacher and mentor, Ilana Rubenfeld, performing her “magic.” A lady was lying on a massage table coughing from pneumonia and she was prompted to say to those who were upsetting her, “Get off my chest.” At that point she coughed strongly and it became apparent that her illness was connected to her suppressed anger at her mother and her husband. The Rubenfeld Synergy Method of talk and touch became the framework for my counseling style because it connected Margaret Mahler’s research on mother-infant bonding with the life-long resulting body-mind-spirit suffering I viewed in that workshop, that weekend.

My dream is to help men and women create healing and love in their bodies, their relationships and their lives. I love inspiring others to develop a broader, more inclusive, higher and even spiritual perspective. I love helping single men and women to finally develop loving and satisfying relationships. I love watching couples shift from anger, rage, frustration and discontent to tears of joy and affectionate touching. And, as they say, when you give you can’t help giving to yourself. As I do this profound and intimate work with individuals and couples, I find myself continually healing.

My dream is to bring my work into the virtual world. I want to live my life in simplicity, abundance and joy as I guide others to become leaders, influencers, and become the love they are seeking from others.

In order to live my dream, I have been continually studying about relationships, love and healing. My first goal has been to heal myself. I have healed my attitude toward relationships by shifting from being a victim to a powerful collaborator and influencer.

But recently, my body has been calling out for greater attention. Aches and pains, stiffness and an excess 20 pounds has finally led me to make a definite decision. I made a decision, two weeks ago, to get my beautiful sensual body back in shape, and release all the current stiffness and pain. In that short period of time, I have already lost over 10 pounds and my flexibility is returning.

My dream is to create a global spiritual relationship coaching program to help men and women heal their bodies, their relationships and their lives. And … I realize I can no longer do it all by myself. My dream is to create my technical team, including my virtual assistants, marketing professionals, technical assistants and my tribe of supportive colleagues and joint venture partners. My dream is to have abundant money pouring in from multiple sources so that I can freely give my time and energy to my passion, writing, speaking and coaching as I guide men and women to heal through love.

If any part of what I am saying speaks to you, please schedule a free personal consultation with me at DrEricaWellness.com and put the words “Dream Friday” in your note.

Thanks to all of you for listening to my dream and most of all, thanks to The Great Edward Elliott for giving me the opportunity to both clarify and share my dream on this Dream Friday adventure.

Warmly,
Dr. Erica

Happy Friday!

Welcome to this installment of…

Share Your DREAM Friday!
It is with great pleasure that I bring to you today’s Special Guest Dreamers The GREAT Shawn & Emily Stoik.

I had the great pleasure and blessing of meeting Emily and Shawn Stoik on Facebook about a month ago after a mutual friend of ours The GREAT Samantha Kerik was featured here on Share Your DREAM Friday.

They were very intrigued by the project and wanted to find out more. We connected on skype and shared our stories of where we have been and the dreams we have for our lives. It was a wonderful and amazing time.

They are a Christian couple with a heart for the Lord and have three wonderful children that they have been blessed with.

Through the power of the Internet they came to meet, fall in love, and now support their family through their business.

Even though live can through us some curve balls once in a while, when we stand in the strength and power of Jesus Christ, He will lift us through and guide us to the other side.

Shawn and Emily’s story is living proof of His greatness as they move through tragedy and triumph on the journey of the life of their dreams.

Please join me in celebrating Shawn & Emily as they share their dreams with us today.

The GREAT Shawn & Emily Stoik – Share Your DREAM Friday

The Story of Shawn and Emily Stoik and the Importance of Living out a Life of Purpose!

First of all, I just wanted to thank Edward and Julie for giving Shawn and I the opportunity to share our hearts and dreams with you! A good friend of ours, Samantha Kerik, was recently featured on Share Your DREAM Friday, which of course sparked our curiousity and prompted us to want to take a closer look at what it was all about and get to meet Edward! Wow! We are so glad we did. It is always amazing to me the way God orchestrates the events in our lives so I know it was no coincidence that this all happened and we are now where we are getting the chance to share who we are, where we’ve come from and where we are hoping to be in the future.

Setting the Stage: So in order to properly share our dreams and goals, I have to back up for a minute to sort of set the stage and share some of where we’ve come from in our lives in order to bring us to where we are NOW!

The circumstances surrounding how Shawn and I met and what we have been through together are FAR from the norm or ordinary and we are well aware of that and extremely grateful for the mercy and blessings we have received in our lives. Interestingly enough, (considering the fact that we make our living today primarily with the Internet!), we met online back in 2001! Today, that is pretty common, but at the time it was still a pretty different way to meet and actually ‘fall in love’ with someone! But considering the fact that we lived so far apart, (He was up in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and I was down in Farmington, Utah at the time) it was probably the only way we ever COULD have run into each other!

Meeting Online–How We First “Clicked”: So, basically, what happened is that my brother dared me to put a profile on a Christian website and a friend of Shawn’s did the same thing… neither of us would have normally bothered to do this but the pieces were all coming together little by little to allow us to somehow, miraculously meet! So, eventually we did. He found me and wrote to me. We wrote and spoke on the phone and fell in love with eachother’s personalities right away! I guess you could say we really, “clicked”! 😉

Meeting in Person: So, to sort of make a long story short, he made the long drive down to Utah to meet me and my family and then brought me back up to Canada to live with his parents so that we could “date”!

After a few months, he proposed to me and this is where the miracles started happening!

Being Brought from Tragedy into Triumph! About a week and a half after we got engaged, Shawn was working at an oil field site near Edson, Alberta and the truck that he was working in wasn’t vented properly and exploded! He had a near-death experience where he had complete confirmation that He was meant to be alive and that it was NOT his time to die! Despite what he went through, almost dying, receiving 3rd degree burns to his hands and face and being in the hospital for 4 weeks (the doctors originally thought it would take 8 months for him to recover and that he would need prosthetic ears and a nose!) We knew that God had given him a second chance and that he had a big calling and purpose on his life! It was truly a miracle! The scars he has now are so minimal compared to most people who have been burned in a fire! He still looks like himself and best of all–he is ALIVE!

It was a big trial for us. It was a hard process for Shawn to go through. The healing time was very painful and very difficult. He received skin graft surgery to help repair the skin on his face and hands but he is very blessed to be alive and of course I am even more blessed that he is still with me. Many people were very surprised that we were able to make our relationship work during all of this. Being newly engaged, this is the sort of stress that often drives couples apart. But we never lost faith and knew even more that we were meant to be together!

We thank God every day for sparing his life and giving us the opportunity to live our lives together. Otherwise we wouldn’t have been able to continue on to get married and have our 3 beautiful children. We have been very blessed and our hope and dream now is to be able to share where we have been and where we are now to help inspire people to keep going. (and in case you don’t know, we do live a very blessed life– we live in a beautiful home, have a very successful business and have everything we could ever need– we have been truly blessed!)

You don’t ever have to let anything hold you back and make you think you aren’t worth living a life of purpose and greatness. We have been through the fire (literally) and come out alive and full of a drive to lift people up who may be feeling helpless in their lives. We know what it’s like to have trials and hardship. In addition to Shawn’s accident, our first daughter also had to have open heart surgery at 3 months old. She was born with a hole in her heart that was causing her to have a lot of challenges with eating and growing the way she should. It was also a very scary time for us. But God is so good and we had a lot of support from friends, family and prayer. And after her surgery she recovered amazingly and has been perfectly healthy ever since! I was given a lot of comfort during this time that the Lord loved me and loved our little girl Trinity and that she would be taken care of and recover completely and of course, she did!

We have been given confirmation after confirmation in our lives that we have a big purpose (everyone does). We know that we are meant to be here and that we need to help show others how they can turn any Tragedy into a Triumph. You don’t need to let your circumstances hold you back. You can choose to allow them to be a stepping stone to step into something bigger!

So, as I’ve been thinking the past few months about what our dreams and goals are, I have also been reading “The Purpose Driven Life” by Rick Warren, for the second time. There seems to be such an under-lying theme in my life lately about the importance of living a life with purpose rather than just “going through the motions”. It can be hard sometimes to know who you really are and what you should be doing. First of all I would encourage you to read that book. It is excellent and it will give you more clarity as to the who, what and why of your life! But also, this is my goal that I truly live out my life with Purpose and with real intention. That I don’t just blow with the wind but that I really live a life of Purpose and Vision. “Without a Vision my People Perish”

There is even more to our story that we can share at some point and that I truly feel belongs in a book some day and that is another one of my goals in the next few years, is to get started on a book so that we can share our story with the world. A couple of weeks ago a Pastor friend of ours shared with us that in an average person’s lifetime (and this is in the case of even the most introverted person) they will reach and make a difference in the lives of 10,000 people! Well, imagine how many people you can touch if you live a life with the intention of making a difference and reaching even more! And with the power of the internet, I can only imagine how much that number will be multiplied by the time we have lived out our lives! It would be impossible to even fathom how many it will be. And my hope and prayer is that by the time our (Shawn and I) lives are over, that that number will hopefully be primarily all for the good and all for the better! That we can inspire people to live for more, to live a life with purpose, vision, faith and intention so that they can get more out of their lives; feel happy, blessed and fulfilled and one day hear: “Well done, my good and faithful servant!”

Thanks again, Edward for giving us the opportunity to share our story. I realize this may not be the normal goals and dreams, but this was what was on my heart to share and I hope and pray that it will be an inspiration and encouragement to anyone who is able to read it!

Thanks and God bless,

Happy Friday!

Welcome to this installment of…

Share Your DREAM Friday!
It is with great pleasure that I bring to you today’s Special Guest Dreamer The GREAT Marie-Suzy St-Louis.

I met Marie-Suzy on Facebook back in August 2010. A fellow Canadian from Quebec, we connected through our mutual friends started sharing content and videos that we shared with each other.

She is a wife and mother to three wonderful children who mean the world to her. Her love for people has always found her working in the service industry in restaurants and is a trained travel agent.

Through personal tragedy, she was told by her doctors that she would never have children. By the blessing of God, she has had three great ones. During her time of her first child she added over 100 pounds to her weight and through her determination, passion, and belief in herself she lost over 115 pounds in 6 months upon coming across some products and a support system that encouraged her along the way. Now 14 years later, some bumps, twists and turns along the way, she has done it again and helping others to do the same.

One of her keys to her current success is her decision to shift from saying I should to I have too!

Please join me in celebrating Marie-Suzy as she shares her dream with us today.

The GREAT Marie-Suzy St-Louis – Share Your DREAM Friday

Helping people dream again is one of my biggest passions in life. I am looking to built a very big, strong and united team in my home business. Being apart of someones life when they can start dreaming again is truly a blessing, doing it together is so much easier then doing it alone. I’m looking for people that want to dream again, what to start living and enjoying there life with their family and friends. Helping people become what they were born to be, have the life that was intended for them, that’s the purpose of my journey here.
