Happy Veterans Day 2017

2017 holiday Nov 11, 2017

"How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!" - Maya Angelou

Happy Veterans Day!

A great big "Thank You" to our military women and men who have served our country with dignity and honor. Thank you for your service to our great nation.

Both holidays were established to recognize and honor the men and women who have worn the uniform of the United States Armed Forces. Memorial Day, which is observed on the last Monday in May, was originally set aside as a day for remembering and honoring military personnel who died in the service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle.

While those who died are also remembered on Veterans Day, which is observed on November 11, Veterans Day is intended to thank and honor all those who served honorably in the military - in wartime or peacetime. In fact, Veterans Day is...

2017 winning or learning Apr 04, 2017

I remember being excited to leave my childhood home after high school graduation and finish college degree. I was eager to move forward in life without truly understanding what I now know is absolutely true; it is better to live my life for a great eulogy and not necessarily for a great resume.  

Being born in the late 60’s, graduating from high school and college in the 80’s.  We were inundated with 24 hour news, talk shows, marketing blitz, social media, plastic skinny celebrities.  We watched tv shows like “Dallas” and “The Cosby Show”, we said things like, “Where’s the Beef?” and “I’ll be back” like Arnold Schwarzenegger. In our 20ies and 30ies, we lived our lives for a resume….attempting to gain, power, prestige and position, the things we could get, the places we could go.  With the luxury of experience my perspective has broadened to focus on living my life for a great...

8 steps to make the remainder of 2017 fabulous

2017 life coach Mar 19, 2017

Take charge of the remaining months of 2017 by carving out time to manifest what you want, with a little help from Life Coach Angela M. Odom

I started the New Year off with expectation and incredible focus, then life got in the way and I began focusing my energy and time on the ever changing political landscape.  For about 30 days I was engaged in provocative conversations with strangers on the internet, glued to C-SPAN, and reacting to every tweet from our newly elected leader.  I was focusing on all manner of unproductive things until I reminded myself that what I focus on expands. Boo-Yah!  I imposed an intervention on myself, stopped being cynical, engaged in some extreme self-care and decided to focus on what I know works for me and mine; gratitude, responsibility and accountability.  
The sound bites of the 24/ 7 news cycle are designed to create some type of allegiance to a specific global news network or branded public figure in an effort to...

The 6 things I learned from 6 people in 2016

2017 winning or learning Jan 30, 2017

I take pride in being a lifelong learner. Six people taught me six significant lessons during 2016. My mindset is unapologetic; I believe we are either winning or learning.  I simply do not believe in losing. If I were to subscribe to the mentality where you are either winning or losing, I believe we decrease the opportunity to grow. Besides, isn't that what this life experience is all about?  Getting to the next hurdle, moving forward, discerning whether something is a molehill or a mountain.  

As I did last year, I reflected on the previous year and noticed who I learned the most profound lessons from based on how their actions changed my perspective or motivated me to move forward.  That article is appropriately titled, "The 6 things I learned from 6 people in 2015".

I retired from the greatest Army on the planet in August 2015, published my first book in 2016, became a certified Life Coach in early 2017, and finally learned how to be present in the...
