Finding Harmony & Peace


Thursday, November 28th

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the U.S. and it's a great time to pause and take stock of all the things you have to be grateful for.

It's so easy to get caught up in what we don't have, or what we haven't accomplished but what about what we do have and what we have accomplished?

I recently saw a story about the people of Syria who have been displaced and are living in camps. Some have been there for their whole lives. They have no running water and no in-door plumbing.

And I remind myself to be grateful for a hot shower, running water, and indoor toilets!

I am also grateful to have a roof over my head. So many people think once you’ve made a 6-figure income, you’ve got it made. I did that, and then the recession hit, I got sick, Christen got sick, we were evicted from our home through no fault of our own-the building was not up to code and everyone got kicked out. But we had nowhere to go and didn’t have enough put away to get another place at the time. We were homeless. But even then, we were better off than most. We were able to stay in extended stay until we found another place to stay.

We had support. I’ve made some great friendships through my business. My friend Betsy Hall helped us get our stuff out of storage and down to San Diego from Los Angeles.

This year, I worked with some awesome clients, did my first book launch that was a promotion for a movie on the same subject, created two new programs for you, published one new book, 21 Simple Strategies to Jumpstart Your Book Marketing Online, Proven Techniques for Quick Results and one print version of another book, How to Crush it in Business Without Crushing Your Spirit, How Entrepreneurs Can Overcome Depression and Find Success (which should be live on Amazon any day now). And I created my funnel! Get ready! You'll be getting first access to the programs that will be in the funnel in just a few days and at a steep discount!

I got to see my brother this year. I hadn’t seen him for two or three years. We’ve had our ups and downs over the years, but we’re good now, and I am very grateful for that.

And my husband…he’s going to be 89 and he’s still kicking! He can’t even believe he’s still here, but he is. And he has all his mental facilities and is able to take care of his basic needs on a daily basis.

I’m grateful to all those who lifted me up when I needed help the most. And I am grateful for you. I’m grateful that I get to do what I do and help so many people improve their lives and the lives of others.

Here’s how one of my clients explained some of what I get to do:

Hey Y'all - want to give a shout out to Ellen Violette! I booked a session with her to hone in on things like category, key words and such for the subtitle of my book and she is BRILLIANT! Thank you for teaching me how to think about such things, Ellen, and for the fantastic conversation, woman to woman. It is in having conversations with others that we know we aren't alone in how we feel and what we are experiencing. Reach out and connect, y'all, especially during the Holiday Hullabaloo season. And if you are about to write a book, or are in the process, do yourself a favor and speak with Ellen.

And this is why I do it!

My wish for you is that you get to do what you love and if you aren’t doing it that you find a way.

In the meantime, Have a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving.

That's it for now!
