Overcoming the FEAR of Success


Overcoming the FEAR of Success

“It's not really what you want, it's what you wish.”

Amy Lee Westervelt

Amy Lee Westervelt's journey in the network marketing industry began in Juno, Alaska, where her husband was stationed. At the time, she felt very hopeless and wanted a different lifestyle. So, she and her husband agreed that if she could replace their monthly income, they could look into other options. 

She began researching the law of attraction and other ways of manifesting their financial goals. Amy discovered network marketing, and new windows of opportunity opened up for her and her family. Before long, she was making a six and a seven-figure income. 

Now, Amy is a successful mindset coach for empath entrepreneurs. She uses her background within network marketing to help network marketing professionals make peace with the resistance of more aggressive marketing techniques and empowers them to go after what they really want. 

How can you dream bigger?

Amy has a three-step process of how to do this. First, assess what you want? 

“The law of attraction is about aligning the outcomes you want with what you have.” – Amy Lee

For example, if your child needed specific medication because their life depended on it, wouldn't you do anything and everything to obtain that medication? Of course! Yet, when it comes to your dreams, you only have some skin in the game, which doesn't necessarily drive you. 

Surrounding yourself with the kind of people who want you want is the second step. Alignment is crucial. When you emulate their habits first, you can modify them to fit into what works for you. When you surround yourself with successful people, you start thinking differently and believing they believe. You change from thinking I'm not enough, to I can do anything.

The third step is is to affirm. To say that it's so.

“What will my life be like when? And start living as if…and then start making room for that abundance in your life.” – Amy Lee

When you experience resistance, it's called the Terror Barrier. This refers to your ego and how it strives to keep you safe. However, it often prevents you from trying new things because it tells you that “new” isn't safe. Yet, the truth is, you're not afraid of failing. You're scared of succeeding because you don't know what life looks like there. 

“When you come up to resistance, the first thing to do is to thank that resistance.” – Amy Lee

Resistance is there to protect you, but if you don't push back, it will relax. To overcome resistance, let go of all the other things you haven't done. Let go of the guilt. Don't take setbacks as personal attacks. They're normal; instead, jump in the driver seat and try it again. Understanding that your ego is there to help you allows you to break false beliefs and create new ones. 

“Forgive yourself for the dreams you didn't think you were allowed were to aspire to.” – Amy Lee

Imposter Syndrome is one way people fear success because they believe they can't do what they claim. However, when you start using “I,” you already know you're inside your head. 

What are you getting paid to do? You're getting paid as a network marketer to show up and help others learn how to market their business authentically. It's not your responsibility to reach their goals for them or make them do the work.  You have to get over the feeling of being responsible for your team's ultimate success. They need to create goals; they need to put in the work and market in authentic ways. You provide the tools and guidance necessary to do that. Cheer for them, show up for them, but remember what you're there for.

How to build confidence and visibility through speaking


How to Build Confidence and Visibility Through Speaking

 

“Nobody can teach you confidence, but they can give you the tools to find it within yourself.”

 

Megan Hamilton

 

Megan Hamilton is a classically trained actor. She attended theater school and university. Yet after a while, Megan decided to leave the theater industry and commit all of her time to the study of music. During this time, Megan recorded 5 CDs and toured all over Canada and the US. During her life, she's had many opportunities to be up in front of people in different capacities. 

 

For the last seven years, Megan has been teaching the four tenants of public speaking to people all over the country. In 2020 she quit teaching at the college level and started her own business coaching people in successful public speaking. 

 

“Just remember people want to hear from you.” – Megan Hamilton

 

The four tenants of public speaking include standing, breathing, speaking, and reading. A lot of times, people struggle with how to carry themselves and stand confidently. Women, especially, tend to lean into themselves and take up as little space as possible. Many women have experienced uncomfortable situations where they feel uncomfortable speaking up and taking up space. Still, standing in public speaking refers to how you own your space and feel powerful within their own body. 

Standing 

 

The Alexander Technique introduces the proper way to stand. It's over 100 years old and was developed by an Australian actor. After a lot of study and research, he discovered the best way to stand for your body includes the following things:

  

  • Firmly planted feet
  • Unlocked knees and hips 
  • A slight pelvic tip forward 
  • A chest that is up and opens toward the ceiling
  • Shoulder blades moving slightly apart 
  • A neck that is free and easy  

 

At first, it may seem a little uncomfortable, but over time you will find this stance helps you be upright and have the least amount of harm on your body. This also helps build authority, both as you see yourself and how others perceive you. 

 

“When you [stand] up like that, you will actually feel a power emanating from you because you are up and open.”  – Megan Hamilton 

 

This can also be adapted to sitting and Zoom meetings. The best way to create the proper sitting stance include: 

 

  • Putting your chair back a little bit
  • Sitting on the edge of your chair with your sit bones balanced
  • Firmly planting your feet flat on the ground
  • Unfolding upper body similar to standing

 

If you stay in Alexander while sitting, it also keeps your energy and engagement up.

Breathing

 

There are two types of breathing, deep breathing and controlled breathing, which helps control your voice. Controlled breathing helps you keep grounded and relieve some of the nervousness often associated with speaking. This breathing method includes managing your breathing instead of allowing your lower brain or subconscious brain to manage it for you.  

 

When you practice controlled breathing, it sends a signal to your brain that says you are not in flight or fight mode, as well as stops the supply of cortisol and adrenaline racing through your bloodstream. Megan recommends practicing controlled breathing by inhaling for five seconds, holding it for five, and then breathing out for ten. Breathing out slowly is what creates a sense of calmness and focus.  Practice this every day so that you can go right into controlled breathing when you are in a high-stress moment.

 

Deep and supportive breathing for your voice includes breathing into your diaphragm and imagining that your lungs have six sides. With each breath, breathe a little deeper. 

 

Voice

 

We support our voice using optimum pitch, which is the most supportive way to speak. This means you support your voice in all situations, even the ones you don't notice or realize. 

 

“Your optimum pitch will feel very vibrational. Keep at it, because once you feel it, you'll get it.”  – Megan Hamilton

 

The best way to find optimum pitch is by taking a really deep breath in through your nose as you fill up your lungs. Then,  have it go down deep into your belly, and with the momentum of your open lungs, try to make a sound. See what comes out of you. 

 

This can be difficult at first. It's essential to allow the sound to let go. Since optimum pitch is very vibrational, you should feel the vibrations within your chest, top of your head, or the back of your neck or lower ribs.  

 

“Once you find your optimum pitch, you'll be creating a sense of musicality to your sentences.”  – Megan Hamilton

 

Reading

 

We read using a technique called text mapping. This is especially helpful for online videos or Zoom calls. First, write everything out ahead of time. This is especially crucial if you're writing out instructional videos. It's essential to be clear about why you are there and what you want to say. By writing things down, you can map out how to vocally say what you've written. Then, by text marking, you mark up how to best naturally say it. Megan recommends starting with a breath bar, which looks like a forward slash and placed everywhere there is punctuation.  

 

At first, this can seem like a lot of breaths, but it breaks up your speech into more digestible fragments for your audience. It also keeps your pace slow, so you don't speed through your address.  By text mapping, you are deciding ahead of time where to take breaths, which keeps you calm and relaxed. This is a built-in controlled breathing system. 

 

Practice your speech over and over in front of a camera. When you read it, you will have that sense of musicality in your sentences, and you'll also be able to read three to five words ahead, which keeps your comments flowing as you look up to see your audience.

 

“Eye contact makes us feel seen in this strange digital realm.” – Megan Hamilton

While there isn't anything fancy about all of this practical stuff, it allows you to be yourself, visible, and confident. Once you know the system, you can use it all the time, and you'll notice an improvement in how you speak to others and will have the tools needed to be confident.

How do build connection and increase your sales


How to Build Connections 

and Increase Your Sales

 

“The way we [companies] are teaching [represenatives] how to build a network marketing business, is absolutely backward.”

 

Brooke Elder

 

 

Today, we're talking about how you can create connections to increase sales. This concept is something that a lot of people are interested in more about. There's a big difference between connecting with you and connecting with your network marketing company.

 

In this episode, we'll discuss the differences between the ways your company may be teaching you to build connections, and how you should actually be doing it.

 

Lots of network marketing companies want buyers to fall in love with the company. So, they pitch company agendas. Some of these agendas include highlighting the fact they are debt-free or how they give back to the community. They want buyers to feel connected to the company, so they continue to buy their products. Then, when buyers purchase products from you, they make a connection to the company and you. However, for most social marketers, this way of building connections is backward. 

 

It makes sense that companies want to create connections with buyers, yet if you're going to be successful, you need to develop personal relationships with buyers first, so they don't just go to someone else.

 

“If you build a connection first, then lead them to a product and company, you will be so much more successful because they will be connected to you.” – Brooke Elder

 

At Social Tenacity, we teach you how to build your business around you, not your company. You have unique strengths, gifts, and talents that will allow you to connect with other people on a deeper level. Not only that, but you also have experiences that will enable you to relate with other people too. 

 

How many times do you have a great client or customer who buys a ton a product from you? It leaves you thinking that they will continue to be loyal customers, yet when they purchase the product again, they use someone else. The lack of consistent interaction results because they haven't made a personal connection with you.

 

When you build connections and relationships first, this creates a know, like, and trust factor that keeps customers or clients coming back. Once they are connected to you, then they will build a connection to a product and company.

 

When you really care about your customers, you share your stories, and it continues to build further connections. Then, when you market your products or opportunity, customers are more inclined to try it, which increases sales.

 

“We build connections with our audience, which creates that know, like, and trust factor.”  – Brooke Elder

 

If you want to increase sales, then create more opportunities to connect with others. Stories are a great way to build associations with people because they are often more relatable. When people can relate to you, this often makes the most significant difference. 

When you share stories on Facebook or through Instagram stories, it helps connect you to your audience and encourages them to continue using your services.  This results in increased sales because they will continue to buy into your products or opportunity. 

 

Today, start thinking about how you can connect with your audience more. Make a list of stories that illustrate how your product helped you. Then, think about how those stories could potentially help others.

Building Belief in Yourself – You can do this!


Building Belief in Yourself,  

You Can do This!

 

“When you have a strategy, that builds confidence and confidence is what builds the belief in yourself.”

 

Sarah Rose

 

Sarah Rose is currently an online business mentor and network marketing advocate. Sarah grew up in a single-parent home where, sadly, her mom was thousands of dollars in debt. However, when her mom became a pioneer in the network marketing industry, their lives changed, and instead of being thousands of dollars in the red, they went to thousands of dollars in the green. Sarah's mom became her inspiration and helped propel her toward the career she's in today.

 

Sarah stayed within the network marketing industry after she graduated college until she switched career goals and decided to be a stay-at-home mom. Things were good until they weren't. Sarah and her husband found themselves in a financial crisis, which required her to go back to work. Rather than sacrifice flexibility and time with her family, Sarah decided to go back to network marketing instead of the traditional workforce. 

 

Now, she's happy and successfully navigating her career within her current company while helping others find financial happiness and success within their own companies.

 

“If you build it, they will come…you've just got to give yourself a little bit of time, patience, and grace.” – Sarah Rose

 

Sarah's first tip for success in the industry is belief. You need to believe in the industry, your company, and yourself. You've got to think that network marketing works. People worldwide are successful within the trade, making 6, 7, even 8-figure incomes doing it, so you can too. 

 

You also need to own it, meaning understanding that you're a network marketing professional. This includes sticking with it through thick and thin and burning past bridges of unbelief, so there's no other way to retreat.

 

Borrowed belief from your upline also affects your success rate. If you don't believe in yourself, you're less likely to achieve your goals. Of course, your upline wants you to be successful, but if you don't see yourself achieving your goals, you won't. You have to be self-motivated and put in the time and effort to see results.

 

Failure is apart of success just as success is apart of failure. Pivot if you must, but don't quit.

 

Her second tip is deciding to decide, which means you're going to make it to the top and will not be denied. Knowing that failure is not an option will propel you forward to meeting your end goal. Determination is what helps build confidence and belief. 

 

Sarah's third tip is consistency. If you're not touching your business in some way every day, you need to make some adjustments. Time flies by too quickly for you to not be in the game.

 

“If you don't believe in what you're selling and it's not in alignment with who you are…then it's fraudulent. You can't expect people to buy your products if you're not actively using them yourself.” – Sarah Rose

 

“When you're not staying true to who you are, it's not going to work.” 

– Brooke Elder

 

There are so many great companies out there, which is why creating a personal brand will help set you apart and attract the target audience in-line with your products or services. If you're not branding yourself, you're just going to get lost in the noise. 

 

It's essential to identify your unique gifts and talents, so you can sell the way only you can sell. People buy people, not companies. This is why it's also crucial to be vulnerable, real, and relatable in your messaging.

Authenticity is Key to Network Marketing Success


Authenticity is Key 

to 

Network Marketing Success

 

“There are people looking for solutions, and you can show them [solutions] in the right way by leading with your heart and adding value first.”

 

Sarah Cole

 

Sarah Cole is a trained and licensed nurse anesthetist, and despite earning a 6 figure income, was living paycheck to paycheck due to student loans and other personal circumstances. Her goal of becoming debt-free seemed unattainable. However, Sarah began her Social Tenacity journey about a year ago and since has seen some significant changes in her business and income.

 

Sarah got into network marketing, not thinking it was something she would be interested in or do in the long-term. Although she was successful, she still felt stuck in the industry because she lacked passion and personal investment. Yet, once Sarah switched companies, she realized network marketing was her true calling and mission.  With a skyrocketing business, Sarah's finally realizing her potential and meeting the goals she's always dreamt of.

 

One of the main things Sarah attributes her success to is identifying her avatar.

 

“You have to figure out who it is you want to serve and get really crystal clear.” – Sarah Cole 

 

Sarah also believes in writing down your mission and reviewing it every day. When it's at the forefront of your mind, you are more likely to be successful at adhering to that mission. 

 

A take-action mindset is also crucial to obtaining your business goals. If you can change your belief from how much you can sell or how much money you can make, to how many people you can help, then you'll feel more fulfilled and confident in your business decisions.

 

Facebook groups are also an essential tool for finding the right people looking for your solution as long as you're authentic. Sarah bypasses all the spammy Facebook content and searches for people suited to the solution her company provides. These people match her avatar, so when she speaks to them, it's in ways authentic to them.

 

You've got to keep working at it. Success is not going to be instant, so it's important to take things to the next level and give people the tools needed to succeed. Let your team use their brain so they can make their business into something they're proud of.

 

When Sarah posts on Facebook, she thinks about the one person she's helping. By doing this, her message is more relatable and connected to her audience. 

 

Additionally, she helps her team see quicker results and build confidence by encouraging them to share personal success stories in Facebook posts and comments. This way, she is planting the seeds of authenticity through various Facebook groups and allowing potential clients and recruits to come to her through replies and friend requests.

 

“Putting [your] solutions in [your] content [allows] people to see it and be enlightened to what is possible for them.” – Sarah Cole

 

If you don't have a forward-thinking mindset, your business will be harder to sell and stand by. When you realize you are in the industry to help people find solutions to their problems, you will attract other like-minded individuals.  This will also help you grow your team with people who resonate with you and your mission. 

 

Many network marketers struggle with creating a positive mindset. It can be difficult for them to build self-worth and the belief that they are deserving of more in their life. For Sarah, helping her team establish and grow a healthy mindset is one of her number one priorities.

 

“The people who are successful are those who think; I can do this and take action.” – Brooke Elder

 

To learn more about Sarah, you can find her on Facebook and Instagram or through her Balanced Brillance Facebook group.

Why Duplication ALWAYS Brings Discouragement


Why Duplication ALWAYS Brings Discouragement

 

“When you create a system that is replicateable, it's a totally different ball game.”

 

Brooke Elder

 

Welcome to episode 100!! Can you believe that we have 100 episodes of phenomenal content? Today we are going to be talking about why duplication always leads to discouragement. Your upline may have said you need to create a duplicatable system. Well, you don't, and here's whey duplication always leads to discontent. You are trying to force people to become something they are not.

 

My experience with duplicatable systems was unsuccessful because it wasn't unique to me. It didn't play to my unique talents, gifts, and strengths. I became a minion to my upline rather than the independent boss I wanted to be. I remember crying as I drove to one of my first parties miserable and thinking I didn't care if I retired my husband or not.

 

“You want to tap into your team's unique gifts, talents, and strengths.”- Brooke Elder

 

Here is a framework that works in any business, but you tweak it to match you and your team. For example, when I use scripts and prompts, it's a disaster. Don't believe me, watch one of my first Youtube videos. However, when you have a system that is replicateable, it gives me the freedom to speak from the heart instead, and that's where I thrive. 

 

Play to your strengths. Yet, first, you need to figure out what those are so you can create a replicateable process that will produce success.

 

How do you find out what your strengths are? Take a test. I recommend Strength Finder 2.0. It's a book that you can purchase on Amazon. This will help you identify what you are innately good at. 

 

The book also describes each strength and helps you understand your special gifts and how to relate to your team. You can also have your team take the free High5 test. You can access that here.

 

“You will start seeing that you attract people with the same strengths.” – Brooke Elder

 

I saw this in my business. At Social Tenacity, we give our new clients the Strength Finder book and have them take the test. When I started this company, I was more introverted, and communication wasn't one of my strengths. Yet, because I wanted to grow this weakness into a strength, I began attracting clients with strong communication skills. Then, there's been many other times where I've been working on other attributes, and I attracted clients with the skills I wanted to increase.

 

Your strengths can change. If there's something you think you lack or things you would like to have, work on them, and you can grow your weaknesses into powerful strengths. Learn about that quality. Look for ways you can include the strength into who you are. 

 

“When you start creating a replicateable system…you are going to have more success.” – Brooke Elder

 

When I figured out what worked for me, that's when I started seeing success. Fairs and shows were not only a waste of money and time for me but not as successful as I would have wanted. That's when I discovered online marketing was my strength. I switched gears, and my business grew. 

 

When we allow people to play to their strengths, it makes your team stronger. When you play to your strengths, it automatically brings success, and both you and your team will love what you do. 

 

If you haven't taken the test yet, click here. We'd love to hear how uncovering your strengths has helped your business grow.

Entrepreneur Mindset Vs Employee Mindset


Entrepreneur Mindset vs. Employee Mindset

 

“You are never going to reach your dreams…if you can't make that shift.”

 

Tricia Peterson 

 

Today the amazing Tricia Peterson talks to us about the difference between an entrepreneur mindset and an employee mindset. She delves into how to transition from making hobby money into making business money, and it all begins with your mindset. Having a business mindset is more than just working more hours; it starts with changing the way you think. 

 

So, what is the difference between an employee mindset and a business mindset? An employee mindset involves waiting for someone else to tell you what to do. In the network marketing industry, this could be your upline or someone else within your company. 

 

When you have an employee mindset, you never take action on your own because you're waiting for someone to map out each step of the process. You can still be successful. However, this mindset limits your progress because you're waiting for permission from someone else to move forward.

 

“With an employee mindset, you are going to be capped on how much money you can earn.” – Tricia Peterson

 

If you have an entrepreneur mindset, you can say and do what you want. You can direct your business in the direction you want it to go.  Rather than depend on your upline, you create and design a system that helps you achieve your business goals and ambitions. You are willing to rely on what you know and pivot or readjust plans depending on your success.

The sky is the limit with an entrepreneur mindset. If you want to be successful, you can't blame anyone or anything outside of you for your lack of success. It always comes back to where you're at and what you're willing to do. If you can take steps to move forward and understand that what your upline recommends doesn't really matter, you'll be successful either way.

 

Your business all comes down to you how you take control of yourself. So many awesome things can happen when you do. At a young age, societal norms teach you to follow instructions and directions (which isn't all bad). Yet, once you have the opportunity to make your own choices or create a new path, it's easy to flounder because your brain isn't wired to think on its own. Having an entrepreneur mindset is realizing you have abilities or muscles that you can strengthen.

 

Rather than be stuck in a little box, why not think bigger? You can make the income and impact you've always wanted. When you take the wisdom you glean from mentors and others, you can thrive, just tweak them, so they work for you. It takes time, but when you stop and reflect, you can readjust and realign what elements are or aren't working. This shift takes work, and prolonged effort, so don't give up in the hustle.

 

“Who cares if you have a good upline or not? It's all about you and what you can do because it's your business.” – Brooke Elder

 

What's your aim for today? Pick a day where you can reflect and ponder. Think about what things are going well within your business and what things may need an adjustment. Over time, you'll find that your mindset changes. You'll begin to take action and control of your business without waiting for prompts from others. Do this for a month and see how much your business shifts.

How to get back in the groove after a break


How to Get Back in The Groove After a Break

 

“It's ok to take a break sometimes. And every once in a while we need a break.”

 

Brooke Elder

 

 

Today we're talking about how to get your groove back after a break. Since it's summertime, you may be taking a break from your business. Kids home from school, family vacations, and doing all the things can make it challenging to manage your business. This is why taking a break is essential, yet it's also just as crucial to plan for your time away.

 

First, make sure you are both taking and scheduling breaks. I try to plan something once a quarter or every three months, whether it's a vacation where we getaway or a staycation where we stay close to home, it doesn't matter.  

 

Sometimes we do our family's favorite things. Every member gets to pick one of their favorite things, and the whole family has to participate. Usually, it takes two or three days to get through them, but even something this simple rejuvenates me and gives me the much needed time away from my business.

 

“Start making a plan of what it looks like to get back into your business.” – Brooke Elder

 

Breaks are good, but sometimes it's hard to get back into things when you've been gone. This is why preparing for your absence beforehand is important. 

 

Recognize how much time you need to transition back into work. Try not to have big projects planned when you get back. Large projects will make your time away less enjoyable, and the time you return just as stressful.

 

Never “should” on yourself…everything that you do is a could have.

 

Choose what you want to add back into your business when you return.

 

When you empower yourself with choices, it helps you better see the new decisions you need to make. One of the number one reasons people shut down is because they don't feel like they have a choice. If you want to stay in charge of your business, focus on what you want to happen.

 

If you're going to focus on customers, then create a system that will help you focus your attention on them. If you're going to increase your recruits, then find a method that works for you that will allow you to see the results you want.

 

“Boundaries have nothing to do with other people. Boundaries are about you.” – Brooke Elder

 

Set boundaries with yourself. What are you ok or not ok accepting? When you establish boundaries, you can enjoy your time off and still be productive when you get back to work. When you tell yourself how you are going to feel and act, you tell yourself what you are willing to accept and not accept. It can take practice, but with time it becomes second nature, and you will begin to see boundaries working to your advantage.

Be You, Everyone Else is Taken

 

“We're far beyond just 

being told what to do.”

 

Roseanne Dawes

 

 

Today, we're excited to review how to be unique and authentic within your business. Rosanne Dawes is one of our mindset coaches here at Social Tenacity. Today she shares some helpful ways you can practice connecting with your heart by acting on first impressions. In this podcast, we also talk about how you can be the best version of yourself rather than mimic someone else.

 

Who am I? That is a huge question. What makes you special and unique?  To help you understand your mission and purpose, think about a coin. There are two sides to every coin. On the first side of the coin, discovering your divinity and connecting with your higher power is crucial. 

 

The first side also involves understanding that you are much more than just your current existence. The second side of the coin includes your individual purpose within your existence. It encompasses the thing that only you can offer the world. What makes you come alive? What are you passionate about?

 

“Drop down into your heart and just start listening.” – Roseanne Dawes 

 

Pretend that you're in the middle of your heart because this connects you back to your body.  If your heart could speak,  what would it tell you? How would it prompt you to act? As you ponder this question, trust whatever your first thought is. As long as it's a good thought, then it's probably a good concept. Practice dropping into the middle of your heart every day by asking yourself a question. This is step one in the process of learning to trust yourself and to become authentic.

As you build your business,  think about what makes you come alive. Your upline does things that make them feel alive, but that may not always resonate with you. It's essential to review your passions and figure out what really drives you.

 

As you go throughout your day, what things help you come alive? It's a discovery, and that's what is cool about building a business. It's understanding and uncovering who you, as well as unveiling your life purpose.

 

Every experience you have, good or bad,  leads you to your purpose. When you act on your inspirations, you start to learn to trust yourself. With every action, saying yes to the next prompting becomes that much easier.  

 

If you have a good thought, act on it. When you are inspired to do something outside of your comfort zone, realize that the outcome will be far better than if you chose not to act. You may never know why you get individual impressions, but it's essential to trust them, and then great things will happen.

 

“When you act on [inspiration] you have no idea what amazingness is on the other side” – Brooke Elder

 

Will you act on the impressions you receive?  Even if they seem small and weird, it's crucial to respond. As long as the idea is good, just act. You'll be able to move forward faster when you've practiced exercising that muscle daily.

 

Listen to your intuition every morning. What is the one thing you can do today for your family, business, or self? As you repeat this exercise, you'll be amazed at where your life and business will be within a month.

 

“Give yourself grace along the way and keep following those bread crumbs.” – Roseanne Dawes
