It is fantastic to find the opportunity that inspires you, the Golden Ticket that helps you take on the world and win. No matter who you are or what you do, one Golden Ticket is opportunity. Most people have heard the expression, “Opportunity only knocks once.” As nice as that expression is, the golden ticket may come in realizing that sometimes you have to go find the opportunity you want.

In order to succeed, to get things done, people need a chance to play the game. That chance is opportunity. Opportunity does not guarantee you will succeed. Opportunity does give you a chance to try, it puts you in the game. What you do with the opportunity is up to you. Opportunity is the Golden Ticket. Like with any ticket, you can use it to get into the show or you can sit on the ticket and let others watch the show. After all, whether you use the ticket or not, the show will go on. Opportunity works the same way, whether you take advantage of it or not, life moves on. More »

It is terrific to find a way to get the most for your family’s money. To help people do just that, my friend Amiyrah Martin of Four Hats and Frugal started an amazing new business called the Grocery Budget Tutor. What I like about this company is to launch the business there is a month long grocery challenge that will provide the winner with a cool $250!

Many thanks to Little Remedies for providing free product. All opinions are my own.

It is fantastic to be able to give good products to people in need and Little Remedies gave me a dozen new parents’ survival kits to donate to a cause I care about. I have been a mama for a LONG time. My teenie bopper just graduated from high school and is on her way to Spelman College, my son is being promoted from fifth grade to middle school and my twin daughters are going to second grade. Even though lot of time has passed since I was a new parent, if often feels just like yesterday.

When the teenie bopper was a baby she got a cold and was very congested. Of course it was the middle of the night and of course I did not have all the supplies I needed. More »

 

#TargetColors summer essentials www.janeanesworld.com

 

It is fantastic to know that you can find great summer essentials for your home office by shopping at Target. At the end of every school year parents and children hit the stores and the malls shopping for summer essentials. For some moms, the ones who are work at home moms like I am, the summer essentials list is a little different. More »

Like so many women of my generation, I grew up reading the books and poems of the great Maya Angelou. Today I was saddened to hear the news of her death. I immediately thought of this post I wrote two years ago about my place in the world and phenomenal women.

 

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. 
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size 
But when I start to tell them, 
They think I’m telling lies. 
I say, 
It’s in the reach of my arms 
The span of my hips, 
The stride of my step, 
The curl of my lips.                                                  
I’m a woman 
Phenomenally. 

I walk into a room 
Just as cool as you please, 
And to a man, 
The fellows stand or 
Fall down on their knees. 
Then they swarm around me, 
A hive of honey bees. 
I say, 
It’s the fire in my eyes, 
And the flash of my teeth, 
The swing in my waist, 
And the joy in my feet. 
I’m a woman 
Phenomenally. 
Phenomenal woman, 
That’s me. 

Men themselves have wondered 
What they see in me. 
They try so much 
But they can’t touch 
My inner mystery. 
When I try to show them 
They say they still can’t see. 
I say, 
It’s in the arch of my back, 
The sun of my smile, 
The ride of my breasts, 
The grace of my style. 
I’m a woman 

Phenomenally. 
Phenomenal woman, 
That’s me.                                                          

Now you understand 
Just why my head’s not bowed. 
I don’t shout or jump about 
Or have to talk real loud. 
When you see me passing 
It ought to make you proud. 
I say, 
It’s in the click of my heels, 
The bend of my hair, 
The palm of my hand, 
The need of my care, 
‘Cause I’m a woman 
Phenomenally. 
Phenomenal woman, 
That’s me.
