The Attic Holds Treasures! It has been another on of those weeks. The end came before the middle and now the end is near and I have no post prepared. I remember that I promised a great one about community and I’m not the least prepared.  It seems yesterday was Monday, so today should be Tuesday,…

From a Cloud Came Wisdom. . .

Last Week’s Horns. . . Last week when I wrote the blog post; I was sittin’ on the horns of a dilemma! And it was not a pleasant place to be. But time marches on and as it does; Papa God removes the sting from the horns and resolves the dilemma to our benefit. I…

Sittin’ On The Horns. . .

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / May 31, 2019 / 4 Comments

Painting the picture! Nearly a year ago, an organization I helped to start in my home area took on a strange complexion. New leadership who had taken over from me when I served a “pro-tem” position turned nasty and ugly. Suddenly, I was the villian from whom stuff needed to be hidden. A secret meeting…

The Likelihood of a Cat’s Death. . .

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / April 26, 2019 / 8 Comments

Cat Got Your Tongue?  When I was a young woman, I rarely spoke my mind. And when I did, my words were so far from how I really felt that one might accuse me of insincerity – even hypocrisy. I definitely let the cat have my tongue. How did I handle pent-up feelings? I talked…

Thoughts of Success & Failure ~ From the AWI Archives!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / March 15, 2019 / 2 Comments

Sometimes We Must. . .  Sometimes we must adjust our days and weeks to accommodate life events we hadn’t planned for. Such is the case for me the past several weeks. Friend’s sudden illness, hospitalization and subsequent stay in skilled care threw my usual schedule into disarray. It also intruded on writing fresh content for…

Provocative Thoughts on “Sisterhood”!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / February 15, 2019 / 0 Comments

“Sisterhood”. Good word or not? What does “Sisterhood” mean to you? Simple question that may or may not be simple to answer. Recently I posed a series of questions to our Facebook group The Neighborhood in preparation for the AWI relaunch later this year. I opened the question series as follows: “Why are you a…

Our Most Valuable Sales Tool!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / February 8, 2019 / 2 Comments

I Gotta Be Me!  Do you recall the song made famous by Sammy Davis Jr., I Gotta Be Me?  “I can’t be right for somebody else if I’m not right for me” is the line that strikes my fancy as I think about what sells. Because what sells is less about the product or service and more…

Why I Don’t Do What I’m Meant To Do!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / February 1, 2019 / 2 Comments

Setting the Stage. . . It occurred to me this past week that I have been deliberately avoiding what I’m meant to do. Not all of it mind you, but the most important part. And the part to which income and future financial security are linked. It’s not that I didn’t suspect I was walking…

The Truth About Transformation!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / January 25, 2019 / 0 Comments

“Transformation” – Fad, Fiction or Factual? Each season of natural life has it’s own jargon. Words and phrases that associate with something folks consider important and valuable in life. One popular phrase in the coaching industry is “be the best version of myself”. Since Simon Sinek wrote his blockbuster personal growth/business book “Start With Why“;…

Time For A Deep Dive

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / January 18, 2019 / 2 Comments

Anytime’s Good, But A New Year is Best! A few months ago, a friend thanked me for encouraging her to take a “deeper dive” into understanding her personal-professional motives on an important matter. I’ve been thinking about her comment since she noted it on an FB post and the blog post that prompted her comment.…
