ENDLESS, COLORFUL, SUMMER SPIRIT TO YOU...


FOR SOME OF US SUMMER NEVER ENDS...

I consider myself lucky. For me, summer never ends.

When you keep your heart light, and outlook sunny, you naturally keep
that wonderful summer feeling with you all year long (even if you are not at the Cotton Beach Club in Ibiza)!


It may be Labor Day, and, many people feel summer
is over. Well, I believe summer can and does linger on if you see it that way.

It's a stellar day outside here in New England today and I am headed for a BBQ.
I played my favorite summer tunes today on my walk and I smiled at everyone I passed on the path.
And, what is not summery about wearing your new sunglasses and listening to songs like Montego Bay, Mozambique, or Summertime ?

SOAKING IN AS MUCH SUMMER AS I CAN

Most of you who follow Ageless with Aunty know that 
summer is a state of mind and we've got it 365 days a year
right in our back pocket!

HAPPY EXTENDED SUMMER TO YOU AND YOURS...
 I hope you  
keep your own summer spirit alive for as long as possible.

FAN ON THE RUN.....

The One and Only Sir Paul

Yes, I do love Paul McCartney!
And Yes, I always will....

The highlight of my summer of 2016 is most indubitably seeing Paul McCartney play at Fenway Park last Sunday night.

My friend and I got the last two seats only an hour before show time. After praying, lighting candles, crossing fingers and practically holding my breath, I went up to the ticket window and they said they had  just two seats left. If you follow this blog you know my ticket angels never let me down.

I was so freaking happy to be there and see Paul again. I am glad to say I have been able to find a way to attend every Boston show he's played. Ever since Aunty and Uncle D took me to see the Beatles when I was a very young girl, I have been a super fan of George, Paul, Ringo, and John's! And my passion for Paul and the Beatles and appreciation of the music has actually grown over the years. I am more of a fan now then I ever was.

Once we got to our seats, out of the blue my friend took me for a stroll a few minutes before the show and we ended up in a fabulous section on the field closer to the front.  I was so excited I couldn't even sit down. I actually had a case of Beatlemania. Having lived through it and seeing women dropping like flies at the Beatles show decades ago, I still get this outer body kind of sensational feeling like I can fly whenever I see Paul McCartney! It's the greatest feeling in the world. Having listened to his music for ALL of my life...it's incredible to be there seeing him and hearing him live!
Paul admires his fans at Fenway

When I hear him play songs like Band on the Run, I got a Feeling, Let me Roll it ...and Baby you can Drive My Car, The Night Before, I've just Seen a face (and I could go on and on...) ..well, I literally leap for joy. No kidding. My spirit soars and I can not stay in my seat. It's this incredible natural high and I am as happy as a human can be!
I was having so much fun leaping through the crowds that security actually put a person in front of me to keep me as close to my seat as possible. And here she is...

With tens of thousands of screaming fans in the stadium eventually she went to another area and I twisted and shouted the rest of the evening entertaining my entire section. The woman next to me said "Don't worry, I'm a lawyer. I'll represent you!"
Fan on the Run...

I'ts really too bad there isn't a video of me dancing in full glory, and carrying on the way I did. I think it would be very funny to watch. But, I was simply transfixed on the music and so in and into the moment I just didn't stop to ask anyone to film me.  (if anyone did please let me know)!!!
I was just lucky to be there.  And, even luckier to get the last two tickets! Remember, I wasn't even supposed to be in that section.

Just another day in the life. Maybe next time I will come in through the bathroom window...
Whatever it takes to be near a Beatle!!! And, for the last few moments of the show I made a mad dash closer to the stage. And, being that close to Paul McCartney, like I was recently to Ringo (see post from October 2015) represented something significant to me. I heard that voice inside saying you are getting closer to your dream....

Stay tuned. I really am.... 
I predict one day soon I will put my product in the hands of
Sir Paul himself!

LET'S HEAR IT FOR THE GIRLS...

What does Success Look Like to You?


Listen up all your Shark-ettes out there….
This is preparation #1 For REAL LIFE Shark Tank!

The center for Women & Enterprise is a fantastic organization that helps women (and men too) get comfortable with starting a business. They can help teach you all you need to know about business planning, marketing, organizing, selling, raising capital and much more. According to their website you simply need just the idea and the ambition. AT CWE they say: Connect, Learn, Succeed!

My first course with them was two years ago and it was called Visioning. It was so helpful to see your vision, your own picture of success drawn out so clearly on an enormous sheet of paper up on a big board. Right before your eyes you could see the dream blossoming. That is just the first step. Once you have a clear goal they are well equipped to help you get there. They have courses in everything from Business Structure, to Accelerating your Business. They can help with Legal Structure, Name Choice, Putting a Brochure together, and even have a class that asks Is Entrepreneurship Right for You?

Here I am above with Edwidge LaFleur, the Program Manager – CWE – Boston. Along with Madeleine Lutts, she can help answer any questions you may have. They are extremely welcoming and supportive. I already feel like a winner!
If you have a business dream of your own, no matter how BIG or small, and don’t know exactly where, or even how to begin, a great first step would be contacting CWE. They have offices in Boston, Central and Eastern Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and online.

With all the information available on the internet, and places like Center for Women & Enterprise, there really is no excuse for not bringing your business idea to life, or, making your current business better. Sure, there is a lot of hard work involved, but, with the people, resources, and support at Center for Women & Enterprise; it’s a lot easier than you may think. Sometimes the first step is the hardest. So, I urge any potential entrepreneurs out there, simply click this link. Your dreams just got a lot closer. www.cweonline.org

I am currently immersed in one of their more in depth courses and let me tell you; before you know it you might just see me on Shark-ette Tank….. Come on take the plunge….. There is room for all of us. I don’t want to be lonely at the top!!! www.cweonline.org
