The hardest part of sharing yourself isn't actually the sharing. It's the being and the doing. It's being disciplined enough to align your heart, hands, and head to follow through on your thoughtful ideas. My... Read More »
Oprah, Pick Up The Phone!
A girl can dream, can't she? Or as the case may be for us, a team of girls can dream, can't they?
Yesterday we shipped off Month-Two, Package-Two to Oprah Winfrey and her Executive Editor of O Magazine, Lucy Kaylin.
And we will do it 10 more times before the year is over, because in January Oprah declared 2014 “Your Year to Shine” and it just so happens that's exactly the business we are in.
Not only have we developed a methodology for helping you connect with your own Shine, but through initiatives such as Shineworks, The Year of Project, our Shine Capsules, and our website, we're spreading quite a bit of our own shine around the globe.
We think Oprah and her team will want to know, because deep down we are convinced that there is a page in an upcoming magazine just screaming our name; just waiting for a feature, so that we can join forces and work together to power the planet with shine.
Last month we introduced ourselves by featuring #helloyello and sending Hello Yello t-shirts to Oprah and Lucy.
This month we're telling them all about our Annual Box Of Shine party.
Actually, scratch that. This month we are inviting Oprah and Lucy to our Annual Box of Shine party. April 5, 2014, 9:00-11:00. My house.
So, we put a box
inside a box
inside another box.
The outside box, reads, “Oprah and Lucy's Box of Shine”
Inside that box is a second box. On top it reads, “Are You Ready For Some Funshine?” and along the sides of that box are yellow letters painted and outlined in gold glitter. It reads, “The only thing better than receiving a box of shine is…”
“…an invitation to send a Box of Shine”. That's what it said in yellow and gold letters along the outside of Box #3. And, on top of that box it reads, “Have We Got An Event For You!”.
When Oprah and Lucy open that third box there are two of the cutest, custom-made invitations to our party, compliments of resident artist Emily Ramirez, and
a yellow phone
with stickers reading, “House of Shine Hotline” and our phone number at the center of the rotary dial.
Pick up the phone Oprah.
It's the House of Shine and have we got a message for you and your readers!
