My Latest Book: The Awesome Factor
Writing and publishing "The Awesome Factor: An Inspiring Guide For Embracing Your Greatness and Pursuing Your Dream Business" has been the most rewarding thing I have accomplished from a personal development perspective. I decided to write this book because I wanted to get as much as I could out of my head about branding and building a business online into a platform that would be the easiest for as many people to access as possible. This process not only helped me organize all my thoughts into actionable chapters (which took forever and a day) but it actually inspired me to be more and do more with my own dreams and projects.
As an independent entrepreneur I too have struggled with the "waiting for a sign" or "get permission" syndrome to move ahead to the next step and even I sometimes forget that I AM THE BOSS. YOU too are the boss. Not only the boss of your own business but more importantly, the boss of your OWN LIFE. I want to inspire you to take that next step in whatever you want to do (business, hobby, education, new job, career or even relationships...). Don't be afraid to be you and share your gifts with the world. Embrace who you are, pull up your bootstraps and get to it!
Inside this book you will find key, actionable steps to help you identify and embrace your passion and turn it into a business you love. I will share with you my personal story of how I became a home business entrepreneur, and my proven go-to solutions on how to stay focused on your goals and brand your business, as well as the simple steps you can take to launch your business online.
If you are looking to start your own business and want to find more clarity and assurance to keep moving forward, then this book is for you. From identifying your passion to putting it into action, my wish is for this book to inspire you to take a leap of faith and gain confidence and belief in yourself to go forth and release your Awesome Factor.

Other Streams of Income
Yes, I totally believe in and am a part of the network marketing industry...but in my experience a combination of different components need to synergistically be in place for the 'average' person (meaning those who aren't coming in already with a downline from another company) to have the best chance of success: and no, it isn't just about timing (timing with no action = zero success). It is a combination of: products that WORK + something people WANT + leadership with EXPERIENCE (not just a title) + COMMUNITY. For me, personally, the compensation plan is something I review later but it has never been the deciding factor. That's just me though. I find that most companies are eager to reward the right behavior so learning those behaviors will get you a paycheck.
...What I am saying is that THE COMBINATION I mention above positions you for the BEST chances to succeed.

I am honored and humbled that you have stumbled upon my site. Simply awesome!
My name is pronounced ‘I May’).
I am a personal brand designer, a blogging coach, a writer, and a professional network marketer. Yes, I love doing it all because it feels right to me. And because it fulfills what my soul seeks: creativity, passion, helping others and giving back.
I live in Arizona with my husband and kids and on my spare time I love watching rom-com movies with my headphones on, a bowl of popcorn and a glass of wine. Sometimes I just re-watch my faves: Twilight, Silver Linings, Sweet Home Alabama, Leap Year and Pride and Prejudice.
I am an entrepreneur at heart, bar none! I love owning and managing my own business, learning new strategies from other professionals in the industry, and meeting talented individuals every day. I do all this primarily online, through my blog and through social media. Of course, I do attend live events to learn and meet other folks, as well as speaking engagements.
I have lived in Arizona since 1984. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with a minor in Computer Science from Arizona State University.
I have 8 years experience in the banking industry in many roles, from account management, to classroom training, project management and direct management. I also have 14+ years vested in business logistics, web design, and e-learning course design working for one of the world’s industry leaders in microchips and a Fortune 500 company as an Instructional Systems Designer. Yep, I’m techy too.
I have built my network marketing business to a 6 figure income strictly online on a part time basis, using a blog and a fan page. I will personally coach those who WANT TO learn how to do this the same way I do it. Reach out to me directly for this.
My goal is to give back as much value as possible to the online independent entrepreneur community as well as the network marketing industry, and help you create an awesome personal brand that helps you stand out from your competition and inspires others to connect, engage and do business with you.
