These are few chapters of my new book which will be coming out soon, Work Until Your Bank Account Looks Like a Phone Number.

“You will never get rich working for others, but who will become richer is the person or company you work for and if you are never late and always show up for work they will truly  adore you and they don’t have to show up cause they can count on you, but if you love yourself, why don’t you a risk doing something you love, working for yourself for your own business becoming your own entrepreneur? – Valerie Cheers Brown

Chapter 1: My One Word

My one word is ‘Generosity” and the reason it fits me is because I love sharing and serving others.  From the ripe age of 16 I began volunteering as candy striper and loved seeing the patients faces light up when they heard me and my cart coming upon their hospital room. You will be surprised how good you get treated when people know you are not doing this for money, but from the generosity of your heart, giving back to them without expecting anything in return except maybe a smile and a genuine thank you!  

When you begin sharing and giving back to people the universe returns to you in such amazing and incredible ways. It can be others inspirational poems or stories, motivational speakers will even begin noticing you if you keep being consistent and showing them how you love serving others on social media.

I love social media and not to gossip or talk about what I had for dinner or breakfast but social media allows the freedom to be free to display what God has given to you which in my case is my purpose of serving and giving to others.  I was raised and taught how important it is how you treat others will come back to you and even the people who don’t like you, the way you treat them will come back to you.

Did you know that you will begin to see followers of not only people following you, who need inspiration when you share good quotes?  I have found that if you are consistent setting a timeline for yourself as if you were an entrepreneur already, consistently performing, even millionaire and billionaire business entrepreneurs and/or investors will begin following you and will help or send their angels to help you. Do you know why? Because it shows them that you love what you do and when you love what you do, it will show when you show up and show out sharing with universe!  Also when you are a caring and giving soul, it will attract the universe and this comes from what you are producing and throwing out into the world on a consistent basis! Your work will speak for itself and the way you use your sharing power consistency will allow others to realize this person is serious about getting him or herself of poverty!  It is just something so amazing giving and blessing others what God gives to you to others. It is not about you when you are an entrepreneur but about your employees and I consider my social media my audience, so therefore, they come first. When your employees are taken care of watch who takes care of your company which is in a way you.  It takes team effort and being an entrepreneur is not about just you, but about your employees and it is about making them happy so this is why I love what I do and I love sharing with others what I do and when you take of your employees they take care of you syndrome.

The name of the game is making others dreams come true and watch what God begins doing and the amazing and incredible people will begin flocking to you when you love what you do sharing with others.  God will make your days of working hard, constantly, so well worth the wait and I warn you, it will not be easy by a longshot and being your own entrepreneur in the beginning is hard as hell cause you have to set the stage for what is to come. I say I am “Faithing IT” until I “Make IT!”

Chapter 2: Faith it Until You Make It

Many individuals have huge dreams of maintaining their own business and working for themselves, particularly in this economy where independent companies are thriving.  But thinking about doing and actually doing are quite the opposite, so I decided to make it happen before it happens or in other words I have been “Faithing It Until It Happens!”

If you think working for others is the way to success, think again and it is not!  And, if you think getting money to begin a business is the way to go, think again!

Do you have a thought for a business, an invention or an idea that  you’d like to present to the world? I’ve had numerous thoughts, yet something use to dependably shield me from following up on them and that was I would talk and actually talk myself out of just doing it and asking for help, also I would not put my words into action and would speak about what I wanted to happen but did not do anything about it.

This is when I did my first YouTube video and I sucked at it and was nervous as heck but I did it! Here is what I thought I needed  in order for my idea to happen which was the biggest failure I did to myself and my idea! I thought, for the most part, I needed underlying capital, so I thought I would begin a fundraiser and what a joke this was and not one single person donated not even me?  First or second failure of my journey! I failed so many times, I lost track. Who in the heck is going to help you to raise money or even donate money for your dream to happen? Not one single person on this planet in their right mind! But I did not give up and not even the richest person on this planet would even think about doing this and I again failed! So after failing a few times, and praying on it and asking God what should I do, this is what happened:

I prayed and the video worked even thought it was horrible and I was scared to death, I did it! God would give me different projects to work on while I was waiting on the backpack team to come together and God was giving me signs along the way! And then, I would turn God’s work into my work and make inspirational, motivational quotes and make others dreams come true by creating something encouraging that others were feeling or perhaps going through stopping them from making their dreams come true.  The whole time, I needed all the boost of energy and motivation I could get. Now, this may sound like a farce but this is what you have to do in order to become successful and is not easy so if you give easy being an entrepreneur may not be the way for you to go but I do encourage you to make yourself rich and stop making others by working for a job you hate working only for money. But wait! It does not happen overnight nor in a year, but you have to keep going & doing what God gives to you which is His purpose and you then turn it into your purpose by giving it back to the people and then the secret is to watch patiently as you keep going what the universe begins to send to you.  I can’t tell you what the universe will do for you, but I know what it has done for me and I am beginning to see those I had been following, who are already where I want to be, now following me, and God is putting these amazing angels into my path and they are my what I call my ‘Angel Investors!

When I say “Angel Investors” I don’t mean monetarily, but what I do mean being in the presence & giving me what I need to make my dreams come true as a team effort. These amazing angels God has put into my life are my team and you will begin being invited to meet with them or attend their functions, etc. It won’t be easy and you can ask for help along the way but you have to help yourself also doing the very best you can putting forth the effort showing gratitude and thankfulness and I take this as a blessing from God when you begin seeing them in your emails messaging and they will begin showing you that they think of you enough as one of them including you as part of their emailing daily mailing.  

Most of all what is the greatest feeling is when you get support from mentors and it gives you this ultimate sensation creating this hunger giving you this energetic energy for producing more and more and then you begin to produce so much more and more. Then you have way more to share with all of God’s children and these blessings are coming in abundance because you have worked in great abundance producing proving you are worthy to be part of a team who also produces and works nonstop!

It is amazing how others story can actually turn into your story and then your story turns into other people’s stories for them to turn into their own stories to share and give away in your writing. I hope this makes sense. When you share with others it also encourages others to get up off of their butts like it did for me and stop saying what you are going to do and do like Richard Branson says, “Screw it, Do it!”

It is amazing what God won’t do when you give back to His children! I feel in my heart that we all are put here with one purpose and that is to help our fellow man which in lay term to me is to help one another and nobody should be without when they need, but you have to take those struggles, use them to help another because you know how and what it feels like to be hurting or without and share and/or give them back to the world.  You take those struggles, turn them into your story, help yourself by helping others and then the healing cycle begins. It helped me and if it helped me I know it will help anybody else who cares about others!

Anyway, back to working for others: I found that when using your own money to begin your own business you will never become successful and using your own money is sort of  like when you are working for somebody else making them richer and they are only in it for the money and why would anybody give you money for you to be able to become your own entrepreneur when it is supposed to be yours and only your company.  

I have found by actually failing having my own travel business and failing incredibly well, realizing that you have to have a team to become successful and you cannot run a successful corporation working by your lonesome and expect to be successful. It just won’t work. I realized that in order to have what I deserve I have to give my story in order to become successful and then what makes you more successful is when you give it away without expecting anything in return.

So, this is when I began giving away all my work, being creative thinking of new ideas of how to become successful so if one thing did not work I would have worked on many things showing others that it takes  all kinds of ways of becoming successful. I also found that you can’t just stop at doing one thing and you have to be creative in your thinking not being afraid of doing the most scariest things that scare you to death and going out and actually doing them!  

I love writing because it inspires and motivates myself also and believe it or not by me sharing my inspirational and/or motivational quotes it helped me in great ways and taught me to want more and I became more hungry willing to take risks trying new things.  

Now, in order for me to to be able to help you and in order for me to motivate you, I must first be motivated and sort of like: if I am not feeling well how can I help another feel better and if you are not progressing or feeling well it will show in your work and then how can you help anybody else or even be believable?   

But in them meantime, during my recess periods I call them, I listen to all motivational videos and I love the ones where you can just listen and listening is so much more important than seeing especially when you need motivation to get you through all the struggles and rough times you will encounter.  This is just my opinion and we all have different ways of motivating ourselves but I love listening and I love listening believe it or not gets through to me and stays with me longer than reading a book. I know when to shut up believe it or not, and I am good listener believe it or not, and I have learned how  to let you go and back off when it is not helping me to move forward and making me hungry for more, and though I am still work at progress, I have accomplished quite a lot and am very proud of myself and you should be too if you have accomplishments. I had to “Faith It Until I Made It,” through it all!

This appears to be a commonsense methodology, isn’t that so? So for what reason am I still not working for myself? Since I’m not going for broke. To get rich, I must work for myself. Also, to work for myself, I need to go out on a limb, put myself out there, and make my work work for me and when you love what you do you won’t mind not working for money.  

Chapter 3: The Journey Begins

My journey has been long and still a long way to go but I felt the need to put this into words for you and the spirit has given me so much that I am writing this out and I did not even have to think about and just started doing this book.  This is when I know it is the spirit giving this to me when you don’t procrastinate.

These are just a few people who send me their emails and I feel like I am one of them who are my mentors and I follow them and now seeing them have somebody on their team follow me and inspire and motivate me.

Bill Gates: He dropped out of Harvard to begin a product organization. He was in school, learning innovation without a clear report or profession plan, until the point when his companion needed to open a business with him. So Bill turned into an accomplice in an organization; at that point… well, you know the rest. You recognize what happened in light of the fact that he ended up one of the most extravagant, best individuals on the planet, all since he went for broke. He left a standout amongst the best colleges on the planet to begin a business, and look how that satisfied!   Melinda Gates has helped inspire me in so many ways and I love the Gates Notes and I don’t always agree with but I learn something everytime I read your work Bill Gates and for this I say thank you for being part of my journey Melinda & Bill Gates, American business magnate, investor, author, philanthropist, and humanitarian. He is best known as the principal founder of Microsoft Corporation

“Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.” – Bill Gates

Evan Carmichael:  I have known Evan for a very long time and we follow each other answer one another in emails.  He is a faithful answerer of my emails and I thank you for this, Evan! He composed his book, “Your One Word” which is available right now on Amazon, and has begun now going around the United States speaking with entrepreneurs like you and like me who just need that extra nudge of encouragement by sharing his story with us to  to get us started. Man, after I met you the feeling I left was I could hardly wait to get home to begin my book. Evan came to Saint Louis, my hometown, and I did not know how much it would cost to go to his event because I live off of $966.00 a month and most of that for my roof over my head, food in my refrigerator and one personal pamper for myself once a month.  So, I just thought to myself I have got to write to him and let him now that I cannot afford 1000s of dollars to come and see him but I had to see him! I let him know my financial status and how many people listen to the people and make it where they can actually come? Evan did this and I am so grateful and this is how this book became! Evan Carmichael understood where I was coming from because he had been there, seen it and just plain understood and explained this in his story about he was embarrassed to let them know he had not much money. So after praying, I just knew he would make it affordable so I could meet him one on one and  God made it happen! In his book he told how lost out on a great deal but ended up making it on his own. I loved how he did not harp on losing out and I always believe when God closes one door He has another waiting to open for you and this is exactly what happened for my friend Evan Carmichael. It is so awesome listening to somebody tell their story and before their words come out you know what the next one will be because you have experienced pretty much the same kind of struggling. Evan has encouraged me from day one when I began listening and watching his “Top Ten Rules” and I fell in love with anything which he came into contact with on his videos.  I loved Evan’s video presence so much because he offers you give opinions and post what you liked the most, etc. He also answers emails himself and he answered me all of the time!!

Well, I enjoyed seeing and meeting Evan and his beautiful wife, Nina for the very first time live in Saint Louis, and have followed he and Nina’s videoes when their son was on them too.  Well, this book is because of you Evan Carmichael and for this I want to say thank you so much for helping me see saying what I am going to do and doing are two different things.  As much as I hate to say this, “This is why I don’t like goals and anybody can write anything and they can just sit there looking you in the face if you don’t put forth any effort of doing them!” Evan Carmichael has  encouraged me so much that I started & began this book and I thank him greatly! Evan began using others stories and not just anybody’s stories but people he wanted to get to be like and this is why I love following him and Evan showed me that when you follow big, and actually do it rather than talking about it, you get big so big you will begin to see that giving away and sharing with others has no limits but will make you successful! Evan  thanks for coming to Saint Louis and I wish you happy travels to all of the cities you will cover sharing your story. I feel God sent you to me showing me what I will be doing soon!

“Don’t quit!!! Find that motivation to keep going even when people around you think you are nuts.” – Evan Carmichael

Fran Kiradjian: My mentor, like a sister, colleague & business partner who is the Owner/CEO/Founder of the BLLA, Boutique Lifestyle Leadership Association aka Stay Boutique Lifestyle Leadership Association.  I prayed when I went back to college in about 2010 or so and asked God to send to me a strong female business owner in the hotel arena who loved motivating other hotels and also who helped college students in leadership positions and God sent me and not only did he send this angel Fran, to me but she her family made feel so welcomed and I felt like a part the BLLA family graciously.  It is funny I was not a member and claimed myself so much that when I became member I was the happiest camper ever! When I first met Fran and her family, it was like I had known them all of my life and the rest is history! When I began the emphasis of Organizational Leadership at National American University where I learned so much about what writing can do for your lifetime success it all began and I began following Ian Schrager, the Grandfather of the Boutique Hotel and then I began following  Mr. Kimpton of the Kimpton Hotels and then I also began to follow Mr. Marriott of the Marriott Hotels. Anyway, I did papers and sent to Kimpton and Marriott and suggested they think about going Boutique and the rest is history. I guess what I was writing amazed Fran and this when I became a member of the BLLA. I am now a member of the BLLA and I was interested in owning hotels when in college when I studied Organizational Leadership.  I had this idea that I would love to become a part of a much bigger vision of owning and being partners with investors of the boutique hotels and I right now still have a vision of Pod/Capsule hotels in the airports all around the American airports. I was quite thrilled and also honored when the Boutique Lifestyle Leadership Association became Leadership instead of Lodging, and I noticed and could not help but believing that the leadership had something to do with Fran helping colleges and leadership was her emphasis and also my major in college. Thank you Fran for encouraging me to keep writing! I also cannot wait to meet my silent partner, your friend, Patrick Cooney, who stalks me a lot and pops up at the right time it would appear! lol 😉 Fran Kiradjian, Frances Kiradjian, Founder & Chair of the Boutique & Lifestyle Leadership Association

Richard Branson:  Okay, Sir Richard Branson and who would have thought I would be following this amazing & generous human being who gives to the world on an incredible basis.  He is constantly being creative with his imaginative & beautiful dyslexic mind, same as my dyslexic mind, but not letting not one single thing stop him from trying anything.  He just plain does not care what others think ! I came up with a crazy idea for a first of a kind backpack and I know in my heart he helped this happen but here is what he and his Virgin team did.  They sent me a copy of an Virgin Startup Business Plan. Would you believe I did one and had never done a business plan of this nature in my life but I got the basics down and sent it back anyway. Richard Branson has a quote that goes something like this, “If anybody offers a chance of  a lifetime and you don’t know how to do it, just do it! Don’t quote me and this is probably my new quote instead of his! Lol I am a smart, proud dyslexic different maker, and so proud of me, but when I saw all the things Richard Branson had done, it made me cry and be happy all at the same incredible time, knowing that God had chosen him to be in my life.  “Wow, “ I thought and as I shake my head while writing this I saw how he wrote blogs quite a lot and then I began reading his blogs and I also saw how he wrote sometimes, but then he had his team write also sharing their stories and I then began to think this is exactly what I want to be when I grow up! Lol I had to pat myself on my own back when I came up with the zany idea of the first of its kind backpack addressing posture which one has good posture you can pretty much learn to manage any disease and if a child it can help to correct so when you do become older it would effect as much as it has not affected me much because of my participation in gymnastics as kid so good the Olympics approached my parents. When kids are sick they tend not to have pity parties like many adults may have.  But the idea of the zany first of its kind backpack which was not just for carrying but for you to wear all the time if you choose to protect your spine when sitting, standing or for wearing all the time when we in the 21st century sit and glare at computers for way too long of a time and this backpack can help save the world’s disease caused by bad posture and help to decrease the disability rate and we can even lower the rate of those having to use canes and walkers because when we take care of our posture, which is one of the most important aspects of living a good, healthy and sustainable life if we can decrease the spine, neck, and back problems of the world. When I first read about this incredible philanthropist, I thought Oh my God! This is me only I don’t have the zeros behind my name YET, but to know somebody who has dyslexia and who is also a great difference maker and it all began from when he and a friend taking a risk and starting a record company, and eventually became one of the richest men in the world turned my head for sure. He also failed many times but it never stopped him. It was even more incredible because he was a man and I am a woman who thinks on similar levels if not even more so than Richard Branson, not bragging Richard, but I am a woman! Lol  I am in no way, shape or form comparing myself to Richard Branson, but I am writing how his works have inspired and encouraged me to believe that if he did all this, I can too! From Richard Branson has taught me not to second guess myself and just doing go ahead and do it, without second thoughts and I feel that I have become the already better me! Anyway, when I went back to college I began following him and when I saw him kissing my business partner, Frances (Fran) Kiradjian CEO/Founder of the Stay Boutique Lifestyle Leadership Association, on the cheeks, I knew it was all good to go and I just had to prove to God that I wanted this life change and I was dead serious of getting to where my many mentors were already at. My friend, colleague and business partner, Richard Branson is dedicated to helping, serving with a caring kindred spirited spirit and this was the person God chose for me. Soon the rest will be history and I will meet him very soon. Oh, I almost forgot, Virgin Startup sent me a skeleton biz plan and allowed me to put my business plan, which I had never done one this intense before but they gave it to me and I did the very best I could and presented it! It is a sign when people won’t help you, you got to do the damn thing yourself and I did! Now, the rest is history and now have a Swedish Posture Backpack team with well over 200 backers and they are selling quite well but the best is yet to come! Now I have to learn how to sell on Amazon and get others to sell them for Swedish Posture. Work in progress…

Oprah Winfrey: There are many mentors I have that are my secret mentors and I don’t need to mention their names because I listen to them constantly and listening is more important to me and helps me a great deal! Oprah Winfrey I faithfully read and listen to you  speak and your charisma and charm when you speak is to be perfected and should be put into a bottle to be sold to little girls. My favorite words from Oprah that I cry everytime I hear are these words is: “I took a good long look at what I was doing on tv and made a decision that I was no longer going to just be on tv, but I was going to use tv as a platform as a force for good and not be used by tv.” – Oprah Winfrey, American media executive, actress, talk show host, television producer and philanthropist.

Tony Robbins: When I hear your introductions to your events I go crazy and it makes me get up and do something and I thank you all of the motivation, giving, sharing & caring you bring to this world.  I love because you always message me and ask me if i am alright and I love that. Everytime I see you and hear you I get motivated and your videos inspire me to do it! Thank you Tony Robbins for everything you are doing and I feel you through your messages!

“There’s always a way, if you are committed.” – Tony Robbins, American author, entrepreneur, philanthropist and life coach.

Neil Patel: Okay Neil is from the UK and I only know one person from the UK who is a mentor and Neil has helped me by showing me what I don’t need and he has showed me how to read analytics and what SEOs are and though I still don’t understand that stuff I am beginning to use the things you are sharing with me.  There is just so much to learn but I try to absorb as much as I can Neil, but most I do not understand but I know you are there for me helping in some way! It is hard learning all of this stuff, God gives me signs, and when you got mentors all over the place helping you and team players helping you along the way it begins to make you realize that you are not alone thanks to God. I cannot thank you enough Neil. I don’t still know pretty much what I am looking most of the time,  but I am learning to keep track of certain things which Neil has shown me his presence is making me stronger and I am learning to pay attention and you cannot get to where you are supposed to get to when you don’t pay attention and being dyslexic which I use to my advantage, it does take a bit longer, but it has not stopped me, but it takes a little longer for some things to register with me at time, but will never stop me from being the creative & productive woman God wants me to be serving others.  I know about a bit more about reach & audience analytics and I thank you. You have taught me a great deal most, I do not understand, but I know you are there for me! You have to keep doing what the people want, being consistent, and watching the numbers of what they will help with success! Thank you Neil Patel

Daymond John: Who would have even thought I would even be saying your name let alone receiving emails from you, encouraging and inspiring me letting me know he is watching what I am doing. He also inspires me of what to come about the naysayers and for this I say thank you Daymond John. Daymond I don’t have say a whole lot about you and your name speaks for itself and I have admired your spunk ever since FuBu! Thank you Daymond for all of the encouragement and inspirational videos, stories, courses, and especially the vast amount of emails, etc.

Robert Kiyosaki: Rich Dad, Poor Dad…OMG!  I have attended several of your workshops! I listen to Rich Dad, Poor so many times throughout my adult life now and especially  at night while in bed and don’t know what I would do without this amazing story reminding why I even began this journey! I am so glad God introduced me to Robert Kiyosaki and I never knew about him until  when in college and had never heard of his name until I went back to college and it was a required book to read! It is never too late to hear what you need to hear or know what you need to know which will hit home surely and is like a rude awakening and has been for my life.  When Rich Dad, Poor Dad really sunk in was when I kept on taking college courses and when I looked up I had enough to get a PhD but could never get the degree because I could not pass that damn retarded College Algebra, which when I had in high school I mastered. This is when I missed my dad and my grandmother and they both helped me with my Algebra when in school! My dad was one of the hardest men in the world and my mom, me and my siblings never saw  a day without food or our lights on and a roof over our head but when he retired that all changed and his health began to change and then he died and he was really looking forward to retiring and got the raw end of the stick when he retired! All I could do is say, “Daddy, they gave you a gold watch and a paycheck that was in reality theirs and he only got that paycheck when he worked for them and not when he retired. Now that you are retired you kindly remind us all of the time, “You all have to realize I am retired now, and don’t have what I use to have!” I never could understand why he even retired if he were going to  have less than when he was working, but this is I hear many saying now! I have come to the conclusion that when you can’t wait for retirement you must be either crazy (no disrespect intended) or you hate your job, not realizing that you must plan for anything and when you don’t set goals for the long term and even the short term you have absolutely nothing coming when you retire but going backward and going backward is a total waste of time not realizing that the only person who gained was the person you worked for because they became richer each time you made perfect attendance or never took off of work or were sick! You wait until you retire cause you miss what you were doing which you hated  and then retire and have too much time on your hand where you should be doing what you love but instead you do nothing and die!. So, this is when I decided I deserve more and instead of reTiring, I am reFiring! reminds me of the dad who believed you go to school, get job and retire! My poor dad who was a very hard worker also so believed this was the way of life!

“The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way.” – Robert Kiyosaki, American businessman and author. Kiyosaki is the founder of Rich Global LLC and the Rich Dad Company, a private financial education company that provides personal finance and business education to people through books and videos.

These are just a few mentors and I have many mentors but these are dear at heart and I listen to them frequently and they are my medicine that get me going and encourage me that if there stories turned out into a positive success story then my story shall do the same!  I claim my victory in all my dreams before they happen and I have always spoken my dreams into existence and they will be happening soon I just got to keep obeying God by paying attention and staying close to Him and the rest will soon be history and we will be speaking about this book very soon!  “You have to be willing to take risks and not be afraid failing in any business. A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work. All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly. All men dream, but not equally.” – Valerie Cheers Brown

I am beginning to see from many of my mentors who are showing up in my emails are messages from God that I am almost there.  If they answer it is God and not them letting me know He is the messenger and the Almighty and with Him anything is possible!   I don’t care who answers the emails but when I send a message it comes back pretty fast letting me know message received. All that matters to me is that they are showing up to me and showing out for me that they know I exist.  If my mentors don’t answer themselves God lets me know immediately that they got the message and they recognize me as important person which they are reaching out to because what they see I am doing which is serving others and giving back what God gives to me to the universe.  So the universe answers pretty quickly is all I can say and I thank them.

    People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
