[Day #3] Three is a Magic Number


The number 3 refers to the Trinity, and means that you are receiving divine protection, help, and guidance.

This is day #3 inside 12 Days of Fire and Focus and I’d like to share three things with you.

First, if you are anything like me, I’m sure your inbox is full of coaches and gurus with end of year lessons to share. Wonderful nuggets I’m sure, but sometimes we need more.

Beyond lessons, sometimes we need someone to show us love, shower us with light and simply listen to the thoughts we keep hidden within.

Love, light, and a listening ear; the significance of these three things became clear during a clarity call I had today with my client Lynette, who happens to be a lightworker, holistic healer and the creator of the All Roads Lead to Ascension (

Our session quickly transitioned from project updates and tech talk to exploring personal truths and the magic of the number 3.

If there is even the smallest possibility that you find yourself right now in need of release, I encourage you to find peace today… pray, scream, cry, lie down for a while, go do that thing that makes you smile.

Find a space to release and protect your peace.

On this very topic, I have the pefect video to share with you (and it’s good stuff too).

Finding Your Piece, Peace and Power

Three is a magic number.

My second share is the message ‘Choose Action Over Anger’ from my Unblock Your Blessings series (link below).

I want you to know, right now even if there is something, perhaps more than one thing that you are going through, never let your current circumstances determine your future success.

Turn those wrongs into action; work on something that feels right.

Three is a magic number.

The last thing that I have to share is my holiday gift #3:

The Unblock Your Blessings CD is available for three dollars today.

Sometimes we all need a little love, light and a listening ear.

I just wanted to let you know that I am listening and I am here.

Leave me a comment, a voice message or hit reply if you just want to say hi.

And if you like, you can schedule a call too!
That’s actually the fastest way for me to connect back to you.

Positivity, Power and Divine Protection,

LaShanda H.

[Day #2] Gift Giving Season: Two Gifts Are Better Than One


Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a GIFT of God, which is why we call it the present.

I love this message and I love the power of sharing positivity with others.

This is day #2 inside 12 Days of Fire and Focus and I have two gifts to share with you.

Last night I hosted the first webinar inside my Finish Strong 5 Day Challenge.

I hope you were there AND I hate the idea of you missing these, so click the link below to get a GIFT pass inside our LIVE webinar sessions this week (there are 4 left) every night at 8:30 pm EST.

On the topic of gifts, I also created a video today (just for you), so that we can talk about what it takes to achieve success and why you should give yourself the gift of one year.

Before this year ends, I wanted to make sure that you were aware of:

– The New Market of the Future that’s quickly taking over
– How to avoid the one thing causing many other businesses to close
– The Four essential Steps to Personal Achievement.

Click the link below for this must-watch short video (it’s less than 10 mins).

Two gifts are definitely better than one.

Enjoy these now and I’ll be back tomorrow with more Fire and Focus for you.

Stay positive and powerful,

LaShanda H.

On the Path to Achieving Success: Give Yourself the Gift of One Year

There are four steps to achievement: Plan purposefully. Prepare prayerfully. Proceed positively. Pursue persistently.

Start with a plan and pursue it persistently. Your ability to achieve success depends upon how well you can master your craft. The only way you can fail as an entrepreneur is if you quit, which means your sole focus right now should be to either figure out what you were meant to do with your life or start doing that thing better.

Think about it. Think about how many “here today, gone tomorrow” business stories you know. I personally know a ton of them that happened this year alone. Bye bye, local Radio Shack. So long Blab live stream. Whether their struggle revolved around finances, sales, branding or marketing, the end result is always the same. At some point, their fire fizzled and they gave up instead of mastering their craft.

I don’t want their stories to be your story. Sixteen years strong I am still here with a thriving online business. And I know that’s the kind of story you want for yourself. On the topic of stories, have you heard any of these before? At one point Disney was in debt, Lego almost had to close their doors and Oprah’s Own Network was struggling to stay above water in the beginning, but look at all of them now. Practically every “barely surviving to big-time thriving” business success story is built on mastering the art of perfecting ones craft.

If you aren’t quite where you want to be, I encourage you to give yourself the gift of one year to master your craft, stick with your vision and do everything humanly possible to phase in your greatness. Give yourself at least one thousand hours over the course of three hundred and sixty-five days to get to a place of personal achievement that feels right and works well for you.

If you are up for the challenge, we can dive into SMART start, stay on track solutions inside my Fire Starter Circle Mastermind. Let’s team up for one year in a space that I’ve designed to help you gain clarity while mastering the art of information entrepreneurship and creating routines that work for you. I’d love to show you how I went from dreaming about leaving the 9-to-5 world to working at home and living the dream. You too can learn how to create digital content, sell sought-after services, attract attention, generate revenue and maintain momentum; skills that are becoming more essential with every passing day .

Truth be told, in today’s economy, content is king and consistency is queen (period). The rules have changed. Information is power; a powerful fact that compels me to share a few very real truths with you. The first thing you should know is that the jobs of the future, the business beasts of tomorrow will revolve around Intellectual Capitalism. This ever growing market is all about creativity, imagination, leadership, and analysis. Right now Intellectual Capitalism is almost exclusively being dominated by people who have mastered the art of distributing information while telling stories that entertain, educate and inspire others to do great things. Don’t you want to create the kind of business that stands at the forefront of this evolution? Information entrepreneurship is the lifeblood of my business and it should definitely be an integral part of yours.

On the flip side of entrepreneurship, let’s take a look at the 9-to-5 world. I don’t have to tell you that brick and mortar businesses are closing every day. I’m sure you know more than a few people who are out of work because blue collar jobs are being wiped out every month. The sad truth is that big businesses are finding new ways to fire more people while they hire fewer people, which has left many people struggling to find ways to make ends meet. I share these harsh realities as a wake-up call for every person who doesn’t want to be left behind. Take these words to heart, at the end of the day, you can get fired from a job, but you can never get fired from your gifts. When you find your gifts and learn how to master your craft, you can never be out of work.

Whether you are trying to startup, jump start or restart your vision, hopefully, you now understand the importance of giving yourself time to achieve success and create change in your life. I encourage you to keep going, maintain your momentum, monetize your magic and master your crafts now. If you don’t start now or rev up your efforts now, I can almost guarantee that a year from now you will wish you started today.

If you agree with me, gift yourself one year inside the Fire Starter Circle Mastermind and if you do so, I will gift you three months free on me.

If you are not quite ready to gift yourself one year, you can also click here to learn more about the Fire Starter Circle and start the process of working on your master plans on a monthly basis.

Power Tools and Problems Faced by Black Women Entrepreneurs Today


This past weekend I had the pleasure of being interviewed by We talked about some of the things that inspired me to start working with black women online. As well as some of the problems that black women face when starting their own businesses, and how to overcome these challenges.

Here are a few things I shared with respect to the challenges black women in business face today:

I think there are a lot of issues that we face. I think one of the biggest struggles is people aren’t looking for you. So you literally have to go out, especially Black woman entrepreneurs, and put yourself out there so that people know your business exists and that you’re credible. Another struggle is that a lot of times, unfortunately, just within the Black community, working with Black business owners, there’s a negative stigma. So not only do you have to put yourself out there for people to see you, you’ve got to on some level, repair some of the damage that people have had with past experiences, so that they trust you and want to share you with other people as well. So learning how to put yourself out there, learning how to present the most professional business so that you can repair some of the misconceptions or damages your ideal customers have had, and being in a space where you’re comfortable with money.

We covered so many important topics from the trending LetsBuyBlack Movement to Black Lives Matter and racial profiling challenges for Black Business Owners today. Read complete interview here: SistaSense: Powerful Tools For Black Women Entrepreneurs

Do you need an online store? New Web Entrepreneurs Should Try Selz


You can’t have an online business without an online store. I’ve used and absolutely loved PayPal for well over ten years, but sometimes clients want alternative payment methods. A few years back, I discovered the Selz platform and today it’s an absolute everyday essential for me. You can easily sell digital products, physical products and services on Selz. You can also easily embed your entire Selz store or individual products into your website, which has helped me increase conversions. Studies have shown that customers feel more comfortable completing their payments via checkout pages that are on your website vs pages that are set up on external platforms. Best of all, customers have the option to pay via their preferred credit card or PayPal. By adding on more payment options, I saw an immediate increase in sales and new customer business growth.

I have a ‘Set Up and Sell Online’ training CD with videos you can watch, if you need help putting your online store together –

(audio) Overcoming Anger and Negativity Today: The Election, Entrepreneurship, Life


8 Years ago after Obama was elected I wrote this post “The Dawn of a New Day“, which was inspired by our first black president and all the possibilities that the future held at that time. Today is different.

The day after this year’s election, when I learned that Donald Trump was elected I was truly disappointed by the results. I woke up with a pang in my stomach and a heaviness in my heart when I realized America did not place the first woman president in office. With Trump’s win, we now have some very uncertain, challenging and scary times ahead of us.

Across the web and around the world, I see sadness, confusion, hurt, and anger from those who truly did not expect this to be the next phase in America’s future. As I paused and reflected on this as a mother, black woman, and American, I knew that I could not spend my day standing still. As an entrepreneur, I still have to work and as a mom, there are still life-home responsibilities that have to be tended to.

For these reasons, I thought this would be a good time for us to talk about what it means to overcome anger and turn negative feelings NOT into violence and chaos, but into positive thinking fueled by an internal power to push through and remain productive.

Encouraging Messages

  • I get angry about things, then go on and work. -Toni Morrison
  • You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger. -Buddha

What does freedom mean to you? “I’ll tell you what freedom is to me, no fear. I mean really no fear.” – Powerful words from the great Nina Simone. Ask yourself, what would you do to change your life right now if you were not afraid?
