Reporter on the job!
“If you want to be loved, be lovable.” — Ovid
There are many aspects to being lovable, but a major one is “being there.” Sometimes you don’t have to do anything but show up. Whether in business, family, or friendships, when people know they can count on you, it makes you lovable.
In business you may exchange the word “lovable” for “dependable” but it’s extra special to have a personality behind what you do. When you say “yes” because you mean it, and because you believe in what you are doing, that creates a beautiful energy and positive flow between yourself and your client, thus creating more work and success!
Happy Summer to all!
The great news for this month is that my book “The Gypsy Smiled” which was out of print since February 2022, will have a SECOND PRINTING, October 2023. Higher Ground, who published my memoir “I Don’t Want to Be Like You” picked up my title. And there a very special surprise guest model will be on the cover!
I am over the moon about this. And it all happens during my favorite month too.
Also note that my book “Love Cats” under the pen name of Krystianna Mercury is now out of print. But I will be selling a few copies on Saturday, June 3 at the “Authors on the Lawn” event. (See details below in the “Events” section).
And in my journalism career, I was thrilled to write about two Trenton icons, fashion designer, Qaysean Williams, and author Christopher Zara. Both men were awesome, and are great inspirations. You can read the articles in the links below in the journalism section.
