Celebrating Thanksgiving? Read this to know the real essence of Thanksgiving! #thanksgiving #thanksgiving2017

thanksgiving iwrite ispeak your vision torch

Thanksgiving, one of my favorite days of the year. It’s a blessing in disguise because you will also get to spend time with your family and friends.

Thanksgiving is more than the delicious turkeys eaten and newly bought clothes to celebrate this day. The true essence of Thanksgiving is to give thanks for everything you received throughout the year. It is a time of “sacrifice; a time to reflect; a time of forgiveness when we lay aside our offering and reach out to be a blessing. It is a time to experience love and to be loved.

It’s more than the festivities but it is a perfect time and opportunity to appreciate and count the blessings you and your loved ones have received. It is a time when you lay aside YOU and reach out to someone else who is less fortunate. It is the time to look back at the lessons you have learned, the great times you have spent together and how you can spread the happiness around. And the greatest blessing of all is the love you receive from the people you love; family and friends who care, and of course the guidance and enlightenment that God bestowed upon you. It is a simple reminder of all the wonderful things in life.

Now, what’s the true essence of Thanksgiving for you?

Time to cut the turkey! May your Thanksgiving be filled with blessings, joy, and laughter. Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!

Welcome, Let’s Deliver your Vision with Storyteller Bistro™

Hello my wonderful visionaries,

Welcome, Let’s Deliver your Vision with Storyteller Bistro™

deliver-your-vision-header

deliver-your-vision-header

Hello my wonderful visionaries,

Welcome to the Storyteller Bistro™ blog, designed to keep you updated with my latest insights and discoveries to aid you in delivering your story. If you have any topics or questions you would like me to address I would be more than happy to answer you, just drop me an email: contact@storytellerbistro.com.

It is my goal to take you from where you are right now to get you where you desire to be, to deliver your vision and help you tell your story. So let’s get right into it…

Firstly, I want you to pause. Rethink the steps you are taking right now. Where’s your destination? Where will your next step take you? What’s currently missing that’s preventing you from success? Pick out your most beautiful notebook and write down your answers to these questions, don’t forget to date the page so you can refer back to it and see how far you’ve come. Together we will take your vision to the next level.

Today I want to start thinking differently on how you might make your vision a success. How you might deliver that vision. I want you to start thinking about giving birth to that vision.

I want you to carry your vision to term and birth it without any accidents.

Just like birthing your own children you are stretched to the maximum when you are delivering your child. You conserve your energy through your pregnancy until it is time to give birth to that child. Such is the case when you are birthing your destiny. Likewise, when you are birthing a divinely orchestrated vision: your mind is stretched and your heart is extended.

On the day that is destined to give birth to this baby called vision you must push past your body, your mind and the lies your enemy would whisper in your ears.

Push through the sarcasm of people around you, those who have told you that you will never make it; you must push through the ones who are constantly putting barriers ahead of your vision and push through your own mind which is hounding you with thoughts telling you that you are not worthy of such great gifts.

I dare you to push through and birth your dream.

Birth-your-dream

Birth-your-dream

This is the case for birthing your vision. So, if you’re frustrated or overwhelmed, in danger of giving up your dream. I dare you to push.

You are just one event away from making it. From making that dream come true. From becoming a writer, a singer, you are one event away from becoming that which you know has already been established and now you are just waiting for the manifestation. So push. Let me help you push.

This is just the beginning of our journey together. I need you to be inspired, be motivated, be of sentimental value and of course be authentic in everything you do.

Until next time, I dare you to deliver that vision. Write down your thoughts and feelings right now. Do you feel empowered to deliver your vision? Feel confident. I believe in you.

Yours,

Dr. Princess Fumi .S. Hancock, M.A., Ph.D., DNP.

Master Your Millions™ With GOD: Another Successful Retreat Wrapped-Up!

Master Your Millions™ With GOD: Another Successful Retreat Wrapped-Up!

Having recently arrived home from yet another successful retreat, I thought I would give you an update on how it all went: Amazing of course!!! Take a look:

Firstly, I would like to thank you all for attending and all my wonderful, powerful, speakers, I’m talking to you:

The three-day retreat took place at the fabulous Hyatt Place, Franklin, Tennessee with delegates jumping on planes to attend from across the USA.

We kicked off with religious workshops to encourage self-discovery and success through God, led by myself, Dr. David and Pastor Leighann. After a delicious lunch, we entered the exciting realms of marketing with our expert speakers Dan, Rachel, Markeith and Dr. Aikyna.

Our evening session entailed the Sister Tribe Leaders holding a round-table discussion followed by much-anticipated networking time; where my fearless visionaries came together to share their ideas and build their networks (essential for success!).

The second day furthered the idea of moving forward to success with the help of religion in the form of prayer. We held an insightful question and answer session with Dr. David and I; during which we had plenty of laughs and gave everyone a sneak peek into our eventful lives!

Flerida then gave an interesting workshop on investing in real estate – unveiling some golden tips to help us on our way to making the big bucks! Attendees then took to the floor to share how they are mastering their brilliance and their millions, with some fabulous idea sharing and discussion between the whole group.

Prophet Solomon led the afternoon’s events and the following day with insightful workshops on prophetic influence and prophetic activation in terms of business and career success.

The most unforgettable evening was of course the Forma Gala held on Saturday! I had a wonderful time getting to know everyone, discussing visions and learning from their experiences. We had some fantastic storytelling and I hope to see everyone again at the next retreat. If you would like to hear about my upcoming retreats, simply subscribe to my mailing list by clicking here.

Here are just a few of the many testimonials we received after the retreat:

“The setting and atmosphere was excellent. It was beautiful!!” – Christa Lee

 “I’m so thankful for everything that she [Princess Fumi] has outpoured this weekend. I am so thankful for all of the speakers that came out to speak.” – Patricia Osburn

 “Dr Princess Fumi led us into a more intimate realm in experiencing the holy spirit in our own way but in a corporate setting. So the intimacy of the room and the atmosphere was set for healing and deliverance. ” – Linda D Lee

“This seminar is a boost of energy.” – Gloria

“The whole retreat was a blessing from beginning to end.”– Tessa L Hall

Women Entrepreneurs from around the World: The Current Billionaires

Women Entrepreneurs from around the World: The Current Billionaires

As some of you may know my new book, The Billion Dollar Dreamer, is soon to be launched! This is a very exciting time for me and really got me thinking about the women entrepreneurs who have worked hard and claimed their dreams. The women who inspire me to be the best I can be every day. When you visit the Forbes world billionaires list it really hits home that women entrepreneurs are not only few and far between but also little-known names.

Has anyone heard of Liliane Bettencourt? No? Well, let me tell you… Liliane is the first lady on the Forbes World’s Billionaires list! In 1907 Liliane inherited her father’s cosmetics empire and in 2017 her net worth is $39.5 billion dollars!

It’s interesting to go through the Forbes list and take a look at each person’s ‘self-made score’: a ‘self-made score’ of one indicates that their fortune was completely inherited and a score of ten tells us that they are a self-made success.

The first woman entrepreneur you will find who is recognised as ‘self-made’ is Rafaela Aponte. Rafaela met Gianlugi, a ferry ship captain who soon became her husband, and together in the early 1970s they launched Mediterranean Shipping, MSC, with just $5,000 and a ship to transport goods between Europe and Africa.  Together they are self-made successful entrepreneurs, but are there any women entrepreneurs featured on the list who have made it on their own?

women-entrepreneurs-zhou-quenfei

women-entrepreneurs-zhou-quenfei

Scrolling right down (straight past far too many faces of aging white men) to number 186 we find Zhou Qunfei, founder and CEO of Lens Technology. Zhou is a self-made billionaire, and her story is film-worthy…at sixteen she dropped out of school and started working in a factory, using her evenings to attend classes such as accounting and fire safety at her local university. Using the little money she made at the factory she founded her own company making watch lenses in 1993. Just a decade later, Motorola got in touch with her to help them develop a scratch-proof glass for its new phone. Following her successful work with Motorola other phone companies contacted Zhou for her expertise. In 2017, Zhou has 32 factories and employs more than 90k staff. She is the most successful woman entrepreneur on the Forbes list with her net worth at $7.4 billion.

The next self-made female billionaire is once again part of a husband and wife team that together co-founded a business which you may have heard of…Little Ceasar’s Pizza! After marrying in 1954, Marian and Michael Ilitch co-founded the renowned chain in 1959. Michael sadly passed away in early 2017, the family’s net worth is currently over $6 billion. The family currently come in at number 239 on the Forbes billionaires list.

Jumping down to Pollyanna Chu, listed at number 334, she is a self-made billionaire independent of her family’s hotel and casino business which could have easily supported her financially. Instead she has tripled her wealth in the last two years by launching her own financial group. Pollyanna is named as one of Forbes top 100 power women of 2016, ranking at number 42 and her net worth is currently at almost $5 billion. Pollyanna is a real inspiration as she refused to take the easy road of taking on her family’s business, instead she has truly made a name for herself.

Be inspired to make a name for yourself, visit the Forbes world billionaires’ list. You will not only be inspired by the women entrepreneurs but also by the stark reality that the list is predominantly made up of older, white males. This short blog post was designed to give you a snapshot into the list of female billionaire visionaries and now I want to call upon you to deliver your vision, whether that’s to be a self-made billionaire or to write your own novel. As your vision midwife, I want to help you push to successfully deliver your vision, let me help you, sign up for my email insights and stay inspired. We can do this together.

Success Factors: The First Golden Step Before Goal Setting

Success Factors: The First Golden Step Before Goal Setting

On your journey to success there are many things you need to consider before you find your unique calling. Here is a key success factor you need to know at the start of your journey; before even thinking about finding your passion and your mission in life, career or business. In this blog post we will be discussing one of my recent podcasts and considering how will you set a goal when you’re not even sure what your purpose is.

The Success Factor: Understanding your Inner Star Power

For you to be able to set a goal you must understand that there is an inner star power that lies inside of you. You will not be able to set any concrete, attainable, feasible goal until you are able to understand your personal inner star power.

What is Inner Star Power?

Your inner star power is that genius in you, it’s what sets you apart from anyone else out there. Your inner star power is that uniqueness that you have, that area of brilliance that you have that no one else on this earth can contend with. Your inner start power is that place you need to tap into.

tap-into-inner-star-power

tap-into-inner-star-power

How do you Tap into that Inner Star Power and How is it a Success Factor?

To tap into your inner star power you need to start asking yourself these essential questions…Who are you? Who do you hope to be? How do you want others to see you?

If I met you on the street, how would you introduce yourself to me? What do you want to be known for? What is your area of brilliance?

It will be impossible for you to be able to truly set goals if you cannot answer those questions.

If you died today, how would you want your eulogy to read? What would you want people to say about you?

Once you figure out the answers to these questions it will become easy for you to set goals; whether they are life goals, relationship goals, career or business goals.

Success-Factors-Series-golden-steps-eulogy

Success-Factors-Series-golden-steps-eulogy

So, who are you? What do you want to be known for?

The number one golden step on your road to success is answering these questions. Figuring out a clear and defined answer is the success factor.

Don’t just say “I’m a nurse practitioner”, “I’m a mother”, “I’m an entrepreneur”, these are just the elements of you, not the whole you. Who are you really? Who are you deep down in your core?

For me, I am a vision midwife. I know that I have been called to help people deliver their vision, so I am not surprised that my path took me on my route to becoming a nurse, an advanced nurse practitioner. The tools I learnt when I was practising as a nurse has enabled me to answer the call to be your vision midwife, to deliver your vision.

Take care and continue to be the AMAZING person I know you are.

WHAT IS BRAND LICENSING AND WHY YOU SHOULD DO IT

WHAT IS BRAND LICENSING AND WHY YOU SHOULD DO IT

WHAT IS BRAND LICENSING AND WHY YOU SHOULD DO IT

Far long ago is the day of conventional means of earning money. Everyone should be aware already of the tricks and hacks of getting additional source of income. Well, the good news is that you do not need to look elsewhere. If you ever heard of the words brand licensing then you are one step ahead of others. If you have not yet, this is the perfect opportunity for you to understand what it really is.

 

Brand licensing is leasing or renting an intangible asset for a particular agreed period of time and territory. For example, a European perfume manufacturer can lease its brand name to an Asian perfume company.  Let’s look more into this topic shall we? Now, as mentioned earlier, it is a process of leasing or renting but who are the people involved in this? Of course, it is given that you or the company or person who wants to use the brand in association with the product is the first party. Of course, the next party involved is the brand company or the owner. You might have questions in your head now, those companies are already established enough so why would they want someone to lease their brand to some people? In answer to that, brand owners do this so they can extend a trademark onto products of totally different nature.

 

The most important thing that you have to remember in brand licensing is that it is very ideal most especially to business owners like yourself. Why, do you ask? A single answer for that is BRAND NAME. If you are a newbie in this field, then you know how hard it is to establish yourself and be known plus you are naïve on how to fully promote the product that you brand licensed. With brand licensing, you can rest assure that these things will not be your problem. When you brand license, you are entitled to have marketing assistance and support from the brand owner, trust me when I say this, this is a big help in the sense of profitability mainly because you don’t have to come up with intricate strategies to reach that high bar of sales goal also, they have the necessary manpower to do this so hiring relevant people will be in a minimal state, hence, lower investment. Secondly, sourcing out clients/customers will be less of a hassle for you because your licensed brand product will also be introduced to the market of the brand. So, just imagine brand licensing from a big and well-known company, you can even just rest and be assured that you will earn something with just a little effort. Last but not the least is knowledge transfer. Along with the brand licensing agreement is the constant feeding of information across you and the owner in regards of product development, marketing and sales. This is one big aid and stepping stone for you in the future. If you will learn these things, you might as well be able to build your own business in the same field when you are ready. It is like you are doing business while learning from much more experienced people.

 

These are just few of the reasons why you should do brand licensing, but, in doing so, you must learn the do’s and don’ts that are essential to be successful. Learn it from someone who personally did it victoriously.

Wearing Hijabs in a Whole New Level

Wearing Hijabs in a Whole New Level

Wearing Hijabs in a Whole New Level

Okay, so I am quite sure you are reading this right now. That is because this could help you to doll up and wear your hijab in a stylish way. After all, who doesn’t want to look good wearing theirs right? Now, before we cut to the chase, let us all first glance and answer the following. These are the good old how, when, what, and where questions about hijab.

Wearing Hijabs in a Whole New Level

Why do they put it on?

To those who don’t know, a hijab is a traditional head covering. Muslim women wear this whenever they are in the presence of men who are outside of their immediate family. This usually covers their head down to the chest. It is worn to show modesty and privacy. How Muslim women wear it in stylish ways nowadays will amaze you in so many levels.

 

Where and how do they wear it?

This practice is mostly abundant in Middle East countries. Let me remind you that even though these countries carry out this tradition, they wear it differently. Now if you travel to UAE (United Arab Emirates) particularly in Dubai or Abu Dhabi, you will notice that it seemed most of the women have their hair inside layered up or put into a big bun to create more volume or depth to the hijab they are wearing.

If you will go to Qatar, you will notice the similarities with UAE but a particular trend that is very popular in there was introduced by a famous royalty Her highness Sheikha Moussa. She wears a Hijab in a very conventional yet absolutely stunning way. She would wear it like a turban which only covers her head. Her style simply shouts wisdom, elegance, and beauty at the same time. There are other many countries which wear hijabs in less conservative ways and there are also ones who are stricter with their women carrying out the practice. Whatever taste they have, women will always strive and always find ways to look their best, am I the only one agreeing with this statement? Of course, you do too!

 

How to wear it in a sophisticated way?

Now that we know what it is for and when and where to wear it, perhaps it’s the perfect time to talk about HOW TO WEAR it in a trendy way. Oh I know you’ve been waiting for this. Okay, so here we go. We always have to remember that color matching is essential to your attires and yes this also applies to your hijabs; this is the best solution to be trendy and chic when you wear your hijab. Whenever you wear abayas, kaftans or dress you have to make sure that you chose the color of hijab which will complement whatever you are wearing. Check the samples below to see how you can make color matching be your best friend in dressing up.

Wearing Hijabs in a Whole New Level

Wearing Hijabs in a Whole New Level

Women can always mix and match. But in this picture, you will see that even though the dress is colorful and bright, it was carefully matched with a more subtle color which was only accentuated at the top. A perfect partner for her kaftan!

Wearing Hijabs in a Whole New Level

 

Wearing Hijabs in a Whole New Level

Now, with this picture, you will see that the dress she’s wearing is gray based and full of different black patterns. We have to be constantly reminded that if your attire looks really busy with all the patterns accents and all, we should always match it with more neutral-colored hijabs to balance the look. In here she looked divine with her black hijab and eye-catching dress.

I am a firm believer that whatever outfit you choose to wear or whatever taste you have, there’s always a way that you can make it look better by selecting the ideal hijabs for that particular dress.

If you liked the hijabs from the pictures, you can see more of them from our website: http://www.princessofsuburbiausa.com/

They have a wide collection of fashionable dresses and hijabs you’d be thrilled to choose from!

I Teach…

This week, we are going to discuss something so essential that you can’t do business without it. This essential by-product of a business relationship is trust. A great relationship with a client can be a hard thing to build, but the foundation must be one of mutual trust.  There is no reason to have a poor rapport between yourself and your clients, so we are going to discuss building bridges and making relationships work. Let’s get started!

 

Be Professional—But Approachable

How you present yourself in your initial communications with new and potential clients is crucial to building trust. That doesn’t mean you need to be formal. An effective email is more about being relevant, brief and to the point while remaining friendly. Speak to your client in the same way you would a colleague. Depending on their style, you can keep it casual, but be sure to present yourself as the professional and business owner you are. Take the initiative.

Time Is Money

Both you and your client are busy, so be respectful of everyone’s time. That means keeping calls or meetings to the amount of time scheduled, not canceling or rescheduling last minute, not forgetting to show up or showing up late, etc. Admittedly, the more clients you have, the more difficult it gets, but also try to be flexible to their schedule when planning communications.

Communicate—And Communicate WELL!

Depending on the type of process you and your client have set up, make sure to deliver. This could be weekly check-ins or recaps via Skype, follow-up emails, monthly reports, etc. Be sure you’re communicating what it is you’ve accomplished and how it has impacted your client’s business. Clients love to see how freelancers are spending their time because every hour spent is budget spent. Make sure to keep your client in the loop.

Keep Up To Date!

If for some reason you need to let a client go or realize you’ve taken on too much work, do what you can to transition out smoothly. Finish the project whenever possible. If that’s not possible, try finding a replacement you can recommend. No one likes to be left holding the bag.
