I Ain’t Beyonce But That’s Okay

BEYONCÉ IS A top-grossing entertainer, as well as an actress, producer, model, and businesswoman. She is truly amazing, but the world does not need another Beyoncé or Erika Leonard, aka E. L. James, author of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. To stand out from the crowd you must create, not recreate. From hipster to hip replacement, always strive for originality, ingenuity, and high self-esteem. Learn from others, but don’t try to become them. Individual success derives from the unique gifts, talents, skills, and personality each person pos- sesses. It is a mistake that time cannot erase to be anything…

Never Close Your Heart Unless It’s Temporarily Under Reconstruction

Posted by | blog, dr moe anderson, empowerment, life balance, monica anderson, motivation, self-improvement | No Comments

In the bestseller, The Forty-Eight Laws of Power, Robert Greene asserts, “An emotional response to a situation is the single greatest barrier to power, a mistake that will cost you a lot more than any temporary satisfaction you might gain by expressing your feelings. Emotions cloud reason, and if you cannot see the situation clearly, you cannot prepare and respond to it with any degree of control.” All of us know at least one drama queen or drama king. They love to yell and make a scene when they’re offended. While all of that screaming might make them feel better…

Love Thy Neighbor But Watch Your Purse!

Posted by | blog, dr moe anderson, empowerment, life balance, monica anderson, motivation, self-improvement, talk show guest | No Comments

Have you ever noticed how good some people–men, in particular–are at answering only the part(s) of your question they feel like addressing? For example, recently, someone with whom I contracted to do a job did not follow up as promised. This is the verbatim text exchange with that party: 12:04 p.m. (Dr. mOe) “I’ve inquired about when you can meet in person with my business partner and me twice. You have not responded, it seems difficult to reach you. Do you have another job? ” 1:46 pm (Response) “Where are you trying to reach me? This number or email is…

Juggling for Beginners

Posted by | blog, empowerment, life balance, monica anderson, motivation, self-improvement, talk show guest | No Comments

I like jugglers. I’ve seen professional clowns juggle at the circus and executives juggle at the office. The execs call it time management or maximizing efficiency but the tasks are very similar.  The definition of juggle is “cope with by adroitly balancing.” You may balance bowling pins or projects by constantly reprioritizing in order not to drop anything. The interesting fact about this activity is that no matter how many things you juggle, you only have your hands on two things at any given time. The rest are in the air, on your desk, or they get dropped. Knowing your…

Why Is Maya Angelou Famous?

Posted by | blog, dr moe anderson, empowerment, life balance, monica anderson, motivation, self-improvement, talk show guest | No Comments

I originally published this blog in 2012 but I am still mourning the passing of my shero while simultaneously celebrating her amazing life. She was truly a gift to mankind. I’m also attaching a wonderful Master Class that was broadcast on Oprah Winfrey’s network for those of you unfamiliar with the depth and breadth of her body of work. My oldest son asks me, “I don’t understand something. Why is Maya Angelou famous?” I swallow my first reaction and remind myself he is 25 years old and Dr. Angelou is 83. I tick off her literary award winning novels like…

What It Takes To Be A Survivor

Posted by | blog, dr moe anderson, empowerment, life balance, monica anderson, motivation, self-improvement, speakers, talk show guest | No Comments

February 18, 2014 I celebrated my 2-yr cancerversary. Until recently, I have generally avoided using the word “survivor” to refer to myself because I truly intend to be free of disease someday against all odds. As my type of sarcoma (GIST) has no known cure (yet), I was moved to look up the word “survivor” a few weeks ago. Survivor means: to continue to live; a person alive after an event in which others have died; to exist. It does not mean you are healed, rescued, no longer facing challenges or even that you won’t die eventually. It means–right now–I’m…
