Channel KGOD

Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” 345 – December 11 “Two hundred seventy-eight channels and there’s nothing on. Time to turn on the God channel.”—Lisa Morrice It’s hard for any one of those two hundred seventy-eight channels to hold my attention for long. I zip by them with my trusty remote, a kaleidoscope of whirling colors and images: Arctic explorers in a blinding snowstorm, “snow” on a channel that doesn’t come through, thoroughfares in downtown London, a Dove soap commercial (I watch to see their current trend; maybe I could do another commercial for them), sitcom, sitcom, cartoon, no, no, zip, zip, zip. I stop at James Lipton … [Read more...]

Endless Potential

Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” 337 – December 3 “I am definitely going to take a course on time management…just as soon as I can work it into my schedule.”—Louis E. Boone One of the benefits of our fast-moving, information-saturated, technology-enhanced lives today is the wide variety of choices we are offered. It’s wonderful to have the freedom to choose where we’ll live, what work we’ll do, what friends we’ll have. This is also a major cause of stress. We want to do everything, be everyone, live all our lifetimes in this one. There’s so much we could do—if only we had more time, more energy! Frantic to “live up to our potential,” we run … [Read more...]

Smart Spending During Holiday Season

Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” 336 – December 2 “A man is a person who will pay two dollars for a one-dollar item he wants. A woman will pay one dollar for a two-dollar item she doesn’t want.”—William Binger People often moan about their budget-busting behavior during the holidays. They shop from their “See-it-want-it-get-it” mentality. As they bustle through the malls, shopping for the perfect gifts for their husband, children, boss, Aunt Sally and Uncle Harry, they lose all control over spending. They forget their spending priorities, giving their credit cards a major workout. They remember—too late!—when the bills start arriving on … [Read more...]

Gold Tennis Shoes

Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” “To do good marketing, you want to attract the people you want…and repel the people you don’t want!”—Unknown If there’s one thing I’ve learned traveling along this life’s highways and byways, is that in all things it is best to completely be yourself.  Take a stand for yourself, choose your likes and dislikes, and stand proudly in them.  When you are clearly you, other people will see it and know you for who you are.  This simplifies life immeasurably.  Your people will be drawn to you more quickly, and the other people will pass you by. I was thinking about this as I drove to the Jonathan Club downtown Los … [Read more...]

It’s All About PR

“After you’ve written your book, found an agent, gotten a publisher, and your book is finally in the bookstores, five percent of your work has been done.”—Jack Canfield You learn that, in the book world, PR is everything.  When you walk into a bookstore, you are walking into a treasure house of 140,000 books.  Online at amazon.com, there are some 3 million books.  Somewhere in your mind, dimly, you knew that, but nothing drives it home so much as walking into a bookstore and seeing rack upon rack of beautiful books and then you go find your section and see all the racks of beautiful self-help books and then, tucked into a small shelf on the bottom left, there is your one-and-only, your own beautiful book.  Ahhh, you sigh, your book, your … [Read more...]
