Why am I launching this page? I’m already too busy to pick up one more thing….the answer is simple:

My life’s mission is to inspire others through putting big ideas into action.

I didn’t choose this mission or lifestyle  it was MOST DEFINITELY divinely given to me. And after many years of fighting, fearing and fussing about it...I’ve embraced it and now I’m ready to share.

So When Do I Clap? Usually this part about What We Do comes at the end of a blog and it will once I’ve done this sort of thing for a while. Because this is my first post my ‘team of advisors’ have demanded that I put this first.

Disclaimer: Over the past few years this concept has evolved, So When Do I Clap? has been a primer for jazz, a possible TV series pitch, and now a B2B strategy to inspire others (especially entrepreneurs) on their way to celebrated success.

My journey has been of waiting and of celebration. Along the way I've gained a doctorate, started an award-winning nonprofit, launched a successful festival, and successfully completed and assisted in several crowdfunding campaigns totaling over $100k. For more about my background take a peek at my "About Me" page. 

Now enough about me,  let’s get into it.

I love blogs but I’m too busy to read. I only click on things with lists, audio or video….and maybe hilarious memes. Call me trifling…Call me lazy….but one thing I will own is that I’m too busy… to expect me to read a blog….#aintnobodygottimeforthat 


So I want to design a blog that I can:

1.     Post 2-3 times per week

2.     Post content that can be listed fairly quickly that is relevant and shareable

3.     Inspire others
