For this gal who makes her living helping others to get seen, heard,  and celebrated, I send out a powerful shout out to my friends at Facebook for making me feel seen, heard, and celebrated today — my birthday.   Thanks for making my day with all the warm greetings, and it isn’t even noon yet.

I am heading out to Nancy Marmolejo’s I Heart My Biz event in Anaheim, CA in a few minutes to connect with amazing business owners from all over the USA to benefit from what Nancy M. has in store.   I’ll be Tweeting about it, so watch for the #IHMB hashtag on Twitter for all the latest updates.

Since it is my birthday, my wish is that everyone who reads this post decides to do something fabulous for Rise N Shine between now and December 10.   I’ll donate 5% of profits from all purchases made at my DIY Publicity Store to this amazing non profit organization that provides fabulous, worry-free summer camp experiences for kids whose lives are impacted by HIV and AIDS.    If you want to stand out and shine in 2011 as the expert you are, treat yourself to products, services, or workshops to get the mission accomplished, knowing that a portion of every purchase will benefit the cause.   It will do your business and your heart good.  I promise.
