Martin Luther King Day - A Day of Service

"Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality." -Martin Luther King, Jr.


Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a vital figure of the modern era and a pivotal figure in the Civil Rights Movement. His lectures and dialogues stirred the concern and sparked the conscience of a generation. His charismatic leadership inspired men and women, young and old, in this nation and around the world.

After a long struggle, legislation was signed in 1983 creating a federal holiday marking the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

In 1994, Congress designated the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with leading this effort. Taking place each year on the third Monday in January, the MLK Day of Service is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service – a "day on, not a day off."

It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems. The MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King's vision of a "Beloved Community."

Budget Saving Ideas for Small Business Owners

women working on computer
Money is tight for most small businesses. They aren’t the industry giants with huge bank accounts; they are regular people working every day to make their business profit.

While increasing revenue is one way to address budget issues at a small business, it isn’t always that simple. Beyond trying to bring in more sales or find new clients, small business owners should look for ways to cut costs. The following are a few of the things you can do to save money at your small business.

Work With Online Contractors


Having a strong staff can be great for helping you get more done, but it can also be costly. For tasks that are non-essential or those that do not require a full-time employee, consider hiring an online contractor. As an example, a part-time virtual assistant could take on some of the administrative tasks for your business without costing as much as hiring employees to do some of the support work.

Find the Right Credit Card


Using the right credit card can make a big difference for a small business. Of course, you want to compare the fees that come with the card, but you should also look for a card that offers rewards that meet the needs of your business. As an example, if you travel a lot for business, you should look into business credit cards that offer airline miles.

Talk to Your Vendors


Most small business owners work with the same vendors for many years. If you are a reliable customer who always pays on time, you might be able to negotiate a discount. Beyond renegotiating with the vendors you know, you could also consider looking for new suppliers with better prices.

Use Open Source Software


You have a range of business software that could be used to automate tasks or make your business more efficient. The only problem is that many of these programs can be expensive. If you want to save money while still having access to the advantages of these systems, you should look for open source alternatives. As an example, you could use LibreOffice as your office suite for things like spreadsheets, word processing, and slide shows.

Virtual Office


Having office space is nice, but it can be a major expense. If you don’t need to rent an office, you should consider setting up a home office to work from. Depending on the type of work you do, you could even consider letting your employees telecommute instead of coming to an office every day. Beyond increasing productivity, there are several benefits to allowing employees to telecommute.

Hire Interns


Interns could help your business get more done without costing as much as an experienced employee. For the business, an intern provides work for free or at a lower cost; for the intern, it is an opportunity to learn a skill or gain experience in the industry. If the intern performs well, you may even be able to hire them as an employee later on.

For most small businesses, you are not going to find one large expense that can be cut to save a lot of money. However, if you can find several ways to save a little money, it will add up and make a big difference for your budget.

Michelle Danner: Filmmaker, Entrepreneur & Acting Coach ON WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS RADIO

Michelle Danner
Show #512

The craft of acting is as alluring as it is mysterious, and it takes a being of great passion, insight, and determination in order to succeed.  But to teach acting – to inspire creative souls to successfully harvest those tools – requires an even greater commitment, to bring out the best in each and every actor one encounters. That passion is the hallmark of the career of filmmaker and acting coach Michelle Danner, for decades one of the industry’s most respected teachers, and now a successful director who continues to grow and expand her creative universe. 

There aren’t many people who can point to a career full of success as a performer, teacher, storyteller, entrepreneur, and expert.  But Michelle Danner can.

The legendary acting teacher and co-founder of the Edgemar Center for the Arts and the Los Angeles Acting Conservatory, Danner’s also now well-established as a successful feature film director.  Her latest completed film, “Bad Impulse,” is a psychological thriller about family secrets and modern technology, starring Sonya Walger, Grant Bowler, and Paul Sorvino; and she’s set to begin shooting “The Runner,” an action thriller and true-life coming of age story about a troubled teenager forced to go undercover to expose a drug kingpin.

A dedicated mom (with one son who is an aspiring filmmaker), Danner still has her “day job” – overseeing the faculty of the Los Angeles Acting Conseratory, and conducting her weekly acting class. Danner’s list of students has included Christian Slater, Salma Hayak, Gerard Butler, Seth McFarlane, Penelope Cruz, Chris Rock, Gabrielle Union, and Zooey Deschanel.  A longtime student of legendary acting teachers like Stella Adler and Uta Hagen, Danner’s eclectic approach (which  she calls “The Golden Box”) allows actors the freedom to employ a wide variety of techniques. 

Raised in a show business family and with a deep appreciation for all of the performing arts, Danner also continues to run the boutique “Cinema at the Edge” film festival (scheduled for February 2020), and is currently preparing to direct a new one-person play, Bonnie Culver’s “Norris,” starring Anne Archer, based on the memoirs of the widow of writer Norman Mailer.

Simply put, there’s almost no one in the business who knows as much about acting and success as Michelle Danner – and her continued success in multiple creative fields makes her one of the most successful women working in the industry today.

How to Nail this One Step of the Law of Attraction

woman with lights
by Chris Atley

I realized something pretty interesting the other day. Yes the energy we put out comes back to us, but there is something much deeper going on underneath the surface. If you can nail this one law of attraction step, you will truly step into a place of being able to create more of your dreams!

There is a lot of discussion on how what we put out comes back to us. From an energetic perspective. So if we are feeling overwhelmed or stressed out, we will get back more in our life to be overwhelmed and stressed out about, like unexpected bills, getting stuck in traffic, clients having issues, etc.

On the flip side, if we are relaxed and happy, we receive more back that makes us feel relaxed and happy, like new opportunities, finances increasing, a surprise from a loved one, etc.

BUT…here’s the kicker…

It’s not that these things are magically showing-up, we’re creating them! And I’m talking about this being deeper than just the law of attraction (LOA). Per the LOA, if you’re miserable, you will attract more into your life to be miserable about.

<< As an aside, a mentor once explained the whole attraction thing like this and it made perfect sense. It’s not so much that you’re attracting these things into your life and they’re magically appearing, they’re already there. It’s more about what you’re seeing. So if you’re saying that you want success, but deep down you don’t feel worthy enough, you’re putting out an unworthy energy.

You will not see the solution that is already there to create the success you’re wanting because your energy doesn’t match it. You literally will not see the next step or opportunity that is right there waiting for you. You will miss it. You need to feel worthy and positive in order to see the solution. Since the solution is positive, you need to feel positive to see it and receive it. >>

It’s all about the feeling.

So now back to my revelation.

I am going to take the above concept even further. It’s more than just operating on the same frequency as what you are asking for, i.e. more peace, love, abundance, etc.

It’s that you’re making decisions from this place.

Your decisions have energy.

So when you are overwhelmed, you are really attracting / seeing, whatever you want to call it, more decisions that are in alignment with that energy.

It’s the decision that is causing what you are creating.

If you’re overwhelmed, you will make decisions from this place. You’re thinking at a low vibration and therefore so are your decisions. You continue to take on more then you should, you have poor boundaries, you don’t give yourself enough time, you are making yourself crazy with plans! These poor decisions keep you in overwhelm. It goes round and round, until you become aware of it and make a different, more empowered choice.

By contrast, if you’re feeling relaxed and happy, you make decisions from this place. You decide to do more that brings you joy and peace. You make more time for yourself, and what you love (like exercising & meditating), and you are conscious about how you are spending your time. You are making empowered decisions that lead to empowered results.

And here’s the real gem. Wait for it…YOU LET GO EASIER!!!!

Of the drama, the stories that keep you in other people’s business, the gossip, the high expectations and the hurt feelings.

You let go of this stuff sooo much faster – the expression “letting it roll off your back” rings true. If you even realize it’s on your back to begin with.

Hmm.

So let’s look at A) how you’re feeling deep down, and B) how you’re making decisions.

Shift the decision, shift the energy, shift what you’re creating.

7 Steps to Keeping a Healthy Lifestyle with a Busy Schedule

woman writing in journal book
Even if you strive to consciously make healthy decisions, time may not always be on your side. With such a hectic schedule every day, it can sometimes be a lot easier to grab something that’s quick, fast and affordable to eat, like fast food, on your way out or during your short lunch break.

Meanwhile, the gym may be the last thing you have the energy for after a long day at the office or on the job.

However, it doesn’t have to be a tradeoff. Being healthy and being busy is possible, it just takes a little work to turn these choices into a habit. It can be difficult at first, but there are small changes that you can start implementing into your daily routine to live a healthier lifestyle. Here are a few tips that can make a big impact and won’t be too hard to stick to!

1. DESIGNATE TIME FOR MEAL PREPPING


Making a new meal each night for dinner or thinking of a lunch to pack for the following day can seem like a monotonous chore. If you designate an hour specifically to cooking and prepping meals for the week, or by ordering a meal kit online, you’ll save yourself loads of time. Then, when it’s time to eat, all you’ll have to do is take ten minutes to reheat or prepare. Eating healthy doesn’t have to require a lot of effort!

2. MAKE BEING ACTIVE A LIFESTYLE


Getting physical activity doesn’t just need to be an hour session at the gym. Exercising shouldn’t be a chore, it’s about making it into a conscious lifestyle. If you lack the time to do a full-on workout, try squeezing in little ways of staying active throughout the day. Go on a walk when you take a phone call, take the stairs instead of an elevator, or even do a small yoga routine right before bed. Be mindful of where you could be more active in your daily routine and take advantage.

3. ADDRESS DEFICIENCIES


With a fast-paced lifestyle, getting all of your required nutrients each day can be incredibly tough. Common vitamin deficiencies like iron, vitamin B, and magnesium can have a huge effect on your overall wellness. This is why it’s important to address any deficiencies with a doctor and to take supplements or a daily multivitamin to keep yourself balanced.

4. DEVELOP A RELAXATION TECHNIQUE


Eliminating stress as a whole is a near impossible task. Once you’ve come to terms with this realization, you’ll understand that you should be focused on how you cope with stress and what relaxation techniques work the best for you. What may help your friends or family deal with their anxieties may not benefit you the same way. It’s crucial to try out different coping mechanisms to find the right one for you and your unique situation. Techniques such as meditation and yoga are just a couple of ways you can learn to relax and deal with your stress, but there are many more methods you can try as well.

5. CREATE TO-DO LISTS TO STAY ORGANIZED


Have you ever found yourself running a bunch of errands but end up forgetting something along the way, just to run back out later? It happens to all of us but this is a huge time-waster and can be extremely frustrating. By organizing your to-do lists, you’ll be better able to stay on top of all of your to-do’s and feel more in control of your life. It’ll allow you to visualize all the things you need to get done while also prioritizing and planning when to do them.

6. SET REALISTIC GOALS


One of the biggest complaints of chronically busy people is that there’s never enough time in the day to get everything done. Striving for long-term goals is essential for growth, but it’s just as important that these goals be realistic and achievable. Instead of aiming for that six-pack by summer, start off with making a small workout plan and build your way up over time. Want that promotion? Work on one project at a time instead of trying to take on everything at once. By setting realistic goals, you’ll get to where you want to be over time and feel less overwhelmed while doing it.

7. FILL UP YOUR WATER BOTTLE FIVE TIMES A DAY


Most people don’t drink enough water each day to stay hydrated. If you wait until you’re thirsty to drink water, you’ve already let yourself get dehydrated. When you drink enough water, you’ll have a stronger immune system, feel more energetic, and you’ll cleanse your body from the inside-out. Start by getting a great reusable water bottle and fill it up at least five times throughout the day. With a goal, you’ll feel more motivated to drink water and therefore become healthier in the process.

How She Does It: Actor & Writer: RG

About RG


RG is a New York-based actor and writer. Outspoken and grossly committed to exploring the brutal truths of her life. She’s a LAMBDA Literary Playwright Fellow, Sundance Episodic Lab Finalist and in 2020, a first-year student at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

RG’s running a GoFundMe Campaign to help with her first year at The Academy.



Deb Bailey: Welcome to the Secrets of Success blog, RG. Please share how you got started in your creative work.

RG: Happy to be here, Deb. I actually started off as a mime when I was 12 or 13 years old. My parents and I attended a church called Gideon Christian Fellowship. It was a special Sunday. Their drama team performed to a song called No Weapon. Three men in the valley of death are rescued by an angel of God. Suddenly, they’re empowered to overcome the valley. It was a silent lyrical drama. I got so caught up, I asked, how do I audition for the team. The director said come to a rehearsal and see what we’re about. I did and stayed on for five years.


Deb: Are there any “lessons learned” that you’d like to share?

RG: Yes! Acknowledge your accomplishments. I think as women, we tend to downplay our work. False humility gets you nothing. There’s something beautiful about the woman who works to create the life she wants. That starts by acknowledging yourself and the work it takes to build that life.

Acting is intense professional play. For me, it’s about acknowledging the steps it’s taken to get to the next level physically or mentally. A lot of what I’ve discovered don't let other people’s mindsets affect what you do. There’s a stigma about creative careers, especially when you’re an actor. People tend to repeat the same lingo over and over again. If you’re not careful you’ll begin to believe it’s true. All professional careers leave a blueprint of success. Once you breakdown that process, you’ll take steps you’ve never taken.

For example, when I wanted to work Off-Broadway. My process was like this: only audition for Off-Broadway until you get it. It sounds so simple but I decided that if it wasn’t Off-Broadway I wouldn’t audition. A month later, I booked. That came from taking ownership of my career and facing what could have been months without being on stage.

More importantly, acknowledging that I had the power to make strong and impactful decisions about my future. I take the same steps for anything that I want. I throw myself in the ring. I force myself to face it until I understand the parts that make it work. Or, how to grow to get it. At the end of it all, I look back and I say you did that. Lastly, own your vision. I think that speaks for itself.

actress and writer RG




Deb: That's so powerful. What are some of your successes and challenges?

RG: Picking my life up after a dark year of drugs, alcohol, and suicide. I spent a lot of time avoiding the work it would take to get what I want. As an actor, there are a lot of things that are in your control. People don’t teach you that. When they hear actor, they go down the list of the odds. How hard it is. How many people don't make it. Very rarely do they say, here’s what you can do. Like when I was new to New York, no agent, wanting to get seen. I’d put sides on tape and send them to casting directors. I got auditions because of that. But I had to overcome this fear.

Everyone says don’t be desperate. And I’m thinking there’s no way this person can know what’s in my mind. I’m an actor. I’m trying to make it. I can’t walk on eggshells…I gotta live. So I said risk it. If it works one time. It’s worth it. It worked, I started getting auditions. Only once did it backfire. I told myself to let it cool off. Reintroduce when you’ve got something more than a tape. That will hold more power and make it worth it for them. I think actors give away too much power.

My journey is about owning what I have. It’s not elusive, just, it’s the long haul, long-term plan. Once I realized that I began to see movement in my professional career. More than I ever had. One of the things I’m learning, a challenge you might say, is reminding myself that there is no instant gratification. That it’s perseverance and persistence. It’s an intense level of focus, every day. I can’t ride on yesterday’s focus. I try not to look back unless it’s to gain something in the now. I can only conjure today’s focus and use that to accomplish my goals.

Also, I like to remind myself back in the day, when it was two AM and you were high and drunk. No one in your life said hey, RG, slow down. Don't do this. And I had a tribe. I had community, you know? Even at my worst, all I talked about was acting and writing. Now that I’m doing it, I’m like why is no one is there for me? That part needed to happen. I tell myself, RG, you’re on your own. Bring it. Own it. Do it. The only thing I have to lose is myself if I give up or let others tell me how to live.


Deb: You've learned how to step into your power, and claim your dream. So, what inspires you to do the work you do?

RG: My artist is my true nature. When I tap into her, into RG, it’s like being swept away by something dynamic and powerful. That’s hard to explain. Something will catch in my mind. I want this. I need to create that and a shift will happen. My artist comes out to play. She, they, want what they want. Sometimes it feels like I’m just along for the ride. My inspiration comes from my ability to experience multiple reiterations of myself over and over again. To be me. To become. It’s an addiction.

actress and writer RG



Deb: What’s your vision for your work?

RG: I’m learning what it means to produce. To breakdown ideas, to manage projects, to get people on board. It’s very new and feels somewhat uphill but I’m committed to learning. My 2020 goal is to write and produce a short film. I’m building a list of film grants. I’m working on my script. I have a strict rule about not talking about projects unless they’re fully formed. In the past, I’ve pitched concepts to producers and taken meetings before I was ready. That’s never worked for me. I’ve come to appreciate the value of solid planning. So, for now, it’s an intense season of prep.

I am an actor, writer, and producer. I started this journey less than two years ago. I’m beginning to see how to connect the dots. I throw myself into the fire and learn through the doing. With that comes embracing the fact that this is a big bite to take off but I can do it. Ultimately with this project, I’m asking myself, are you an independent filmmaker?


Deb: Sounds like you have a lot of great projects planned. What advice would you give to women entrepreneurs and creatives who are just starting out?

RG: Embrace what you don’t know and jump in. If you start to feel uncomfortable, you’re in the right place. Learning how to learn will get you far. I like to say the successful woman isn’t afraid to make mistakes. Evolve, grow, be, repeat. Sometimes it’s messy and that’s okay. Sometimes it’s beautiful, and that’s even better. The point is you are doing whatever you’ve set out to do to, consciously, to your full capacity. Only you can decide what’s your full capacity.

Get around other ambitious women. Embrace ambition. I realized a year ago who we surround ourselves with is a choice. Make it a conscious one to feed yourself professionally. Stay around people who own their brand, their dreams, their life. Not in a way of admiration. Don’t be a groupie. Be a professional equal. One of the things I like to say is if I have to look up to you, that means you’re looking down. Even your mentors are human. Walk with confidence. You’ve earned your shoes, no matter your level. It’s scary but how you make those big leaps and strides.


Deb: Thanks so much for sharing your work and your advice. Please share website and social media URLs. 

RG: I enjoyed it, Deb. Here are my links:

Hack Your Chronotype to Improve Sleep & Boost Productivity

Optimizing a workday is mandatory for personal and personal success. In order to climb the ladder of an organization, one needs to be efficient and awake at all times. Once this is achieved, not only will your career grow, but you will enjoy the process as well.


However, one culprit above almost all others can hold us back: sleepiness.


Coming to work tired is a chronic condition for many in the workforce. Late nights are typical happenstance in today’s culture. People are getting home later and staying out later as well. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing — just as long as one knows how to adapt. Whether you have an international call or have to work late to get a project done, working smarter will save your sleep schedule and sanity.


Casper designed a flowchart meant to help you discover your chronotype and make the most of your day.


Everyone has a chronotype. Most people are a mix of different types but will lean a majority of the way towards a specific type. The four chronotypes are a Lion, Dolphin, Bear or Lion. Each animal describes what sleep pattern you have and how to make the most out of it.


For example, Wolves are those people who are late to rise but go can work best deep into the late night. In fact, if you’re a wolf, it’s most likely that your creativity gets a boost the later it gets. Typically, this chronotype is more introverted.


Lions are the opposite. Very charismatic but have a tendency to lose energy towards the end of the day, this type of person is almost always a Type A extrovert.


Wolves are suggested to schedule meetings after lunch, and lions are most on their game before.


Another helpful benefit to understand one’s chronotype is the ability to work smarter, and not necessarily harder. If possible, Dolphins should try to work out a schedule where they can come into the office a bit later, and leave a bit later. Bears need to understand when it’s quitting time and be ok with hitting the hay early.

Porscha shares:


  • How she balances multiple tasks and projects as a publisher, author, influencer and filmmaker 
  • What business owners should know about building a team you can trust 
  • How she started her publishing company, why she mentors authors and how to build a successful writing career

Porscha Sterling is an Influencer, Publisher, and national best selling author who is widely considered the exemplar of self-publishing success in the digital age. She is best known for her book series “Bad Boys Do It Better”, which sold more than 5,000 copies in the first 24 hours of its release.

In May, 2019 she was awarded by national magazine publication, SHEEN Magazine, with the Literary Excellence Award.

Sterling holds a Masters Degree in Business Management which helped her in the development of her publishing company, Royalty Publishing House. Under her expert leadership, Royalty Publishing House has established itself as a stronghold in the African-American literary community, publishing many top-selling novels in the Urban, Contemporary Romance, Interracial Romance, and Women’s Fiction genres. In only five years, Royalty Publishing House has become the #1 female-owned urban literary publishing company in the nation.

Sterling intends to make Royalty Publishing House a full service publishing company that is able to meet the needs of every reader regardless of their genre preference. As an accomplished author, publisher and entrepreneur, Porscha strives to break barriers within her industry and, in July 2019, she announced a partnership with the major publishing company, Kensington Publishing, in an unprecedented deal for an independent urban romance author. Under the partnership, Porscha will pen two novels to be released to the mass market while retaining complete creative control and ownership of her work.

Sterling has also partnered with fellow best-selling author and publisher, Leo Sullivan, on the launch of a mobile app, known as the LiT Reading App. The App permits readers to access exclusive material from independent authors.
