Special Guest Blogger - Evie on Revealing Yourself

JBHIV: I am pleased that Evie has agreed to fill my shoes today. Last Saturday's Lifestyle Lifter column featured her and the response was literally off-the-charts. Evie will be guest blogging every Saturday so tune in again next week!

As a model/spokesperson for beauty companies, my photographs were featured in several magazines published to provide women with information about beauty, well-being and lifestyle through editorial content imbued with sensuality, glamour, passion, romance, fashion and all the deep wishes and emotions that women carry within their hearts. It was then that I met a very talented and creative writer/photographer/filmmaker/all around…………….amazingly artistic woman. Her name is Amber Roniger. She listened to my thoughts, my desires, my inner voice speaking and was inspired to write the poem/story “ Reveal Yourself “ to accompany my images in Dare Magazine a publication distributed to mainly women beauty executives/professionals. Amber in now partner and creative director of EvieVision. Stay tuned for more PASSION ROMANCE FASHION COMING SOON… till then…. Enjoy Life and Reveal the “ Je ne sais quoi” within you for all to see !!!!! Evie

Your inner voice whispers, reveal yourself...

Disrobe, unclothe, wash away enmity
Create blissful reality
Scrub your soul shiny clean
Dig in, find true meaning

Strip down to your primal core
And build yourself up again
Unblock, unclog, unfetter, unwind
Boundless, borderless, without time

Be a sassy, brassy broad
Strut your stuff
Get noticed
Be bold, be proud, walk tall
Be a woman

Embrace inner adventure
Exfoliate your essence
Exude blinding courage
Elevate your confidence
Announce your presence


Revel in forgotten dreams
Unearth buried treasures
Retrieve mystic knowledge of ages
Buried deep in the enclaves of your breathless, restless soul

Dust off your creativity
Unveil your unique-y freaky self

Nurture your nature
Love your faults
Flaunt your flaws
Face yourself
Surprise the world
Challenge perceptions
Shine intelligence


Be righteous, strong, serene
Discover your complexity
Re-negotiate your identity
Emanate harmony

Suck the marrow
Close your eyes
Be the sunrise

Flourish and nourish the genius within
Which is all knowing

Follow your guide
Through your third eye
Aye and Aye, Adonai
Exude life

Be your own goddess, Shekinah, Shiva
Dreamer becomes believer
Lifelong journey, spirit guides
Take you in your dreams and fly
Now open your eyes

Electron rider
Soul searcher
Spirit quest
Your very best

Seize the day
Hallelujah, amen

Born again

Deep flavor, soulful behavior
Own it
Know it
Show it
Womanish and lovin' it!

Will yourself into being
Lucid dreaming
Loving, being

Lavish thyself
Learn thyself
Love thyself

Reveal Yourself

TGIF - Memorial Day Weekend Plan

This weekend ushers in the "unofficial" beginning of the Summer Season.

And although a growing number of our followers reside outside the US (4 continents, 13 countries at last count), there are still a fair number of you who are preparing for what I hope will be a restful, and safe Holiday weekend.

Amid all the Picnics, Beach outings, Family BBQ's, and other traditional Memorial Day weekend activities, please take an opportunity to honor the women and men of our Armed Forces throughout the World as they serve our countries.

Without their sacrifice, and those that came before them, our future and our children's future would be much different.

Check in tomorrow for a very special Guest Blogger -Evie- who I introduced in last Saturday's Lifestyle Lifter's post.

Until then, remember to Believe, Achieve, Receive. SDG, JBHIV

Wednesday's Woman of Courage - 85 Broads Founder, Janet Hanson

In my post last Wednesday announcing the re-launch of the WWRG blogsite I mentioned my affiliation with the 85 Broads organization, a global and exclusive women's network, and my honorary membership as one of the first "Guys Who Rock".

I also promised to bring back the Wednesday's Woman of Courage post that spotlights the efforts of one or more courageous and visionary women from across the globe.

Since my loyal followers now come from 13 countries and 4 continents, it is only fitting that I honor today a woman whose efforts through 85 Broads have resulted in a membership of over 22,000 women (and a handful of men) in 82 countries.

I am speaking of Janet Hanson - Wall Street legend, Author, Entrepreneur, Cancer Survivor, Mother, and Friend.

Her accomplishments are too numerous for me to give to you so I encourage you to read a recent interview of Janet by another 85 Broads member, Ana Lueneburger.

In her book, More Than 85 Broads, Janet delivers a powerful message - "Partnership is everything in life".

I couldn't agree with her more.

I encourage you to join the 85 Broads network and participate in your local chapter's events. I hope to see you at one of them.

Until then, remember to believe, achieve, receive. SDG JBHIV

We are the World, You are the World, I am the World

Small world. How we often use this term when we are reminded of someone we have in common with a stranger we have just met.

Or a friend of a friend we never suspected were acquainted.

Facebook and the other Social Media have brought us all together into a small space bounded by a screen, keyboard, and a mouse. Sometimes the choices and method of contact are mind-numbing.

That is why I created a very special, and yes, very exclusive social network just for Women of Wealth. It was called It has been shuttered for over a year now, but due to the overwhelming response I have received since I began blogging again recently, I think it is time to bring it back.

Only this time, it will be a sanctuary, not just a one-dimensional portal. There will be areas of refuge as well as excitement. It will allow freedom, but also privacy.

And it will again be by invitation only.

The women that will form the initial group are some of the most influential on the planet. From this core group, we will build a network unlike any other. And if you are reading this post, you will almost assuredly receive an invitation at some point.

Because you are a woman of wealth, and you are a small world!

Until then, remember to believe, achieve, receive. SDG JBHIV

Fast Forward

It has been exactly one year and one month since my last post. My, how time flies when one is relentlessly pursuing their passion!

As you know, I had to give up my blogging as part of my employment at a major Private Wealth Bank. My tenure there was an unbelievably exciting experience and afforded my an opportunity to work with some of the best and brightest this industry can offer.

It also put me in contact with some of the wealthiest and most powerful women and men on the planet.

But now I am back. Back to my roots, and my core mission: to help women of wealth create their unique "social biography", and begin to fulfill their dreams and aspirations, for themselves and those around them.

We are living in an age where women and men must make a co-investment today in order to assure a bright future for both genders in the future.

In my opinion, no other group gets this more than the 85 Broads co-founded by Janet Hanson and other ex-Goldman Sachs executives as a means of keeping connected. From it's humble beginnings, it has grown to include over 22,000 women from all around the world.

I am honored to have been recently selected as one of their "Guys Who Rock" honorary members. I encourage all of you to consider joining this group as it will connect you with the brightest and most committed group of women I have ever encountered.

I look forward to having an opportunity to reconnect with all of my faithful followers now that I have fast forwarded back to the digital age. Technology has made it possible to bring new relationships to bear to solve age old problems. I hope you consider this blog a forum for connecting the many dots that make up our "dot com" society.

Please look for the return of my regular Wednesday's Women of Courage post beginning next week along with Saturday's Life Style Lifters post which will feature great tips on living well and enjoying it more.
