Keep calm and carry on? Oh no. Heavens, no. I saw this today and my heart jumped! The original says “Get Excited and Make Things”. I had to add one very special word to make it really sing… HAPPEN. “Making things happen” has been my catch phrase ever since WPPI this year. I had an amazing dinner with some very special people: (left to right) top row- Joel Serrato, Jose Villa, Scott Chester, Fred Egan, Erik Clausen aka Poser, Jory Cordy, Whitney Chamberlin, mystery gentleman, Cameron Ingalls, bottom row- Millie Holloman, Cristen Chester, Jesse Chamberlin, Kirstin, Harmony Walton from the Bridal Bar, me, Kyle Barnes, and Jeff Newsom.

I came back to my room at the MGM Signature (nicknamed Argentina since it was about a 6 mile walk from the MGM main lobby) and twittered: So ready to make things happen for people. That night I put in some calls, emails and started really making things happen for people. I’ve been on this kick ever since. A couple of my friends make fun of me for saying it so often, but if you’re focused on a goal, your language will reflect that direction.
What’s your catch phrase? What do those words say about you? I challenge you to come up with a phrase that is active, purposeful, positive, and harnesses that energy that you want to possess in your life and business goals. So, what is that phrase for you? I’d love to hear it…
