Sculpting In Polymer Clay

Sculpting Santa

For me summertime is sculpting time. Maybe its becasue the clay is so warm and malleable in the balmy summer heat, or maybe it's just the extra long hours of natural daylight... who know, but I just love to dive into my clay with reckless abandon in the summer. So becasue of this, I have a very special offer for you.

Have you ever wanted to learn how to sculpt a figure in polymer clay? Well, my Sculpting Santa book has just recently been listed on Amazon. And better still it's now available on for a limited time at an even better price. Shhhh, not supposed to do that, but it will stay our little secret. Now this book has been written in step by step bite sized bits of information walking you through the entire process so you're assured of success right from the start. Ok, so a little practice never hurt anyone, but if you've ever wanted to try it and were afraid of not succeeding, here is a really great jumping off place.

Check it out and then if you buy and try it, I'd love to see what you create. This is the process for sculpting and creating the look of age in your piece.... where a Santa, a wizard, a fairy god-mother or whatever strikes your fancy, this book will help you get there. I'm always here for additional help, suggestions and inspiration. And if you just need a cheerleader, I can do that too! So why not go for it, and see what happens. And for those of you anxiously awaiting the fairy sculpting book, the miniature clay food book and the ball-jointed doll book, I promise you they're all coming. I'm just bouncing between my how-to writing and my fiction writing, plus my doll sculpting and telesummit interview series. So many projects in the works and so little time.... but OH so much fun to be had!!!

How To Create Your Own Damn Luck!

A fabulous post by the amazing Denise Duffield, a phenomenal coach who I've had the pleasure of both interviewing on Passion and working with personally in one-on-one coaching sessions. Denise totally rocks the Law of Attraction, proving time and time again you can create anything you truly desire. She's a phenomenal catalyst on my route best selling author!

The Myth of the Complimentary Upgrade (+ How to Create Your Own Damn Luck)
Have you ever sat waaaaay at the back of the plane and wished desperately for the air-hostess to tap on your shoulder and say, "Ma'am, could you pick up your bags and come with me?"

And then you'd be whisked straight to the front of the plane, given a cold glass of champagne and enjoy all the pleasures of First Class.

Not sure about you, but if that ever happened to me, I'd be like "So long suckers". Hell, I'd even leave my husband back in Economy.

However, the complimentary upgrade is largely a myth, especially for someone who has paid for a basic economy ticket. The rare upgrade is reserved for the business class people, celebrities, the relative of a VIP, friends and family of the airline staff and frequent fliers.

It's fun to imagine the unexpected upgrade or the lottery win but there's a much better way to create your own First Class experience, virtually guaranteed.

One of the reasons why you rarely go from the cheapest seat straight to First Class is that if you always pay for economy, you're an energetic match to economy. That's why so many lottery winners lose their money. They aren't an energetic match to wealth.

In fact - Everything in your life is a direct reflection of your own self-imposed "cabin class"

You know that old proverb, You buy cheap, you buy twice?

I think it costs much more than that.

During our recent L.A trip, we decided to take a shuttle to the airport instead of a car. It was a difference of about $30. We got on the shuttle which dropped us at the wrong airport, so we had to get a taxi anyway, but still missed our flight (by one minute).

Instead of saving $30, that decision cost us hundreds plus we missed a day of our holiday. We also caused a lot of stress. We made a decision based on price rather than convenience and paid for it.

On the other hand - we paid double for our Universal Studios tickets to get an Express Pass. Right to the front of the line for every ride and worth every penny.

So, how do you create your First Class life from where you are now?

Introducing the Law of Incremental Upgrade

The Law of Incremental Upgrade (coined by moi) states that taking small but symbolic steps to upgrade your life yourself is always expotentially rewarded by the Universe.

Basically, you take a teeny tiny step towards upgrading just one part of your life at a time until it becomes your minimum standard.

The point of the incremental upgrade is that it's small but highly symbolic. It might still feel like a stretch because you're not used to spending money on yourself in that way, but trust me - as you upgrade your life you will attract more money to pay for it.

It's not about spending money you don't have or going crazy and putting a First Class seat or a gold plated car on your credit card. It's about showing the Universe you deserve a better life and you're willing to put some skin in the game.

The upgrade formula

Step one: Choose one thing in your life that's really economy - it could be your hair, your underwear, food you eat, shoes, etc.

Step two: What can you do to take it to the very next level (just to premium economy)?

Step three: Take the action and never go back again.

Step four: Repeat with something else

Such action always gets rewarded and your energy slowly gets used to a higher quality life. You'll get everything on your dream board by the incremental action you're willing to take - no lottery win necessary!

So - what are you upgrading today?

CEO/Entrepreneur, Wealth & Performance Coach

Tuesday, July 10th

4pmEDT (1pmPDT)

  • What if you could create your life and your business purely by magic?
  • What if there was no “right or wrong” in business (or anything else for that matter)… only a choice that works for you?
  • What if you didn’t have to limit yourself to one business or income stream ever again?
  • What if YOU could create, attract, manifest, generate, actualize and HAVE all the money you could ever want and NEVER WORK HARD AGAIN?
Remember when you were a child and you were completely convinced that EVERYTHING was created by magic? Did you give that up in favor of becoming a “grown up business person”? Is doing that and being that “idea” of what a serious business person is, working for you or your business?
What if there are other possibilities? And what if those possibilities could bring you a TON more money easily? Would you be willing to choose it?
Join Catherine & Michele as they talk with Jessi and explore what else is possible for you, your life and your business and release what’s been holding you back.

She is a CEO and an Entrepreneur, a Billboard Credited Music Producer, a Singer/Songwriter (with 2 albums on iTunes), a Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science Alumna and a Wealth and Performance Coach living her dreams in Manhattan, New York.

Jessi and her clients are literally accumulating tens of thousands of dollars in gold and silver and attracting new streams of income every single month with total ease.
You might be asking yourself “How in the world has she done all those things in one lifetime?” She’d tell you she did it and continues to do whatever she desires by ‘MAGIC’.
Jessi has a completely different approach to business. “I have never hired a PR person to get the word out about me or my businesses yet people and amazing opportunities always find me. The Universe is my PR person, my manager and my agent!” Jessi says. “And it can be YOUR’s too!”
Whether you’re an actor, a writer, an entrepreneur, a corporate business person, a stay at home mom, a student or anything else… No matter who you are or what your story is.. YOU are magic incarnate. YOU can have, do and be ANYTHING YOU DESIRE.
