Our Story

The story behind our company begins about three-and-a-half years ago. Having experienced a tragic childhood, I not so surprisingly created and experienced a tragic adulthood. While going through a devastating divorce, I joined a multi-level marketing team because a friend was involved with the company and because I loved their product. While my efforts to build a business then were pathetic, something very important happened.

I was introduced to the concept of learning from motivational speakers and began listening to people like Michael Clouse and Jim Rohn. I began little by little to realize how limiting my own beliefs were where I was concerned and how small my expectations were that anything good would ever come or happen to me.

I was shocked really as I became aware of my core beliefs about my own potential for and worthiness of success. I listened everyday.

Mashelle called one day, inviting my daughters and me to share a beach vacation with her, my mother, my great nieces and nephews and her sister-in-law Debbie and I jumped at the chance!

The time came for our beach adventure and out came my boom box with my motivational c.d.'s. I asked if they would mind and they said "No." They probably exchanged glances, and said behind my back haha, "Wow, Lisa has really been through a harder time than we realized, her self-esteem must be really low and she needs this stuff to get her through or something."

Well, the first couple of days I asked if it was too loud. The next couple of days I was told to turn it up and by the end of the week they both wanted to know how they could get their own copy!!

A light bulb turned on in each our minds and a new awareness came into our consciousness. I became a frequent visitor of Half-priced bookstores. Somehow I stumbled upon a book titled "The Power of Your Subconscious Mind" by Joseph Murphy. A paradigm shift was dawning which has not ceased shifting to this very day.

This led us to reassess many previously held beliefs about health, wealth and the whole concept of living a truly fulfilled life. It was like God was saying, "Yes, it's all possible and it's been available to you all along, but you did not know." In Hosea 4:6 of the Old Testament, it reads, "My people perish for lack of knowledge." Sadly, this is true and we have all experienced it in our own lives.

We are here to offer as much knowledge as we can to encourage you to:

  • dream again

  • to set goals that seem just beyond your reach

  • to expect the impossible

  • see it come to pass

  • We do not hold all the answers, but our goal is to continue our research enabling us to offer numerous resources such as informational sites and books to increase knowledge in your interests as you take the path of self-discovery.

    If you placed no limitations upon your imagination, where would you be this time next year?
