Strategic Alchemist

Introducing an addition to my Radical Care Bear title!

Strategic Planning + Femmifestation (Arts x Magic) = Strategic Alchemy

To be completely and fully honest, the phrase "strategic alchemy" came to me during my most recent meditation session last night. I had a vision of myself working with a team of feminine energy folks and we were breaking down a large idea into smaller task chunks. There was a white board with a flow chart, some technology to use for research, colourful markers, sticky notes littered around our table, and a room buzzing with excited productive energy.

The pieces leading up to this confirmation were:

(1) While listening to the Virtual Personal Assistant Podcast, listeners were invited to think about one task that they could do all day. After some thought I could only think of going to planning meetings breaking big ideas down into sizeable chunks and even smaller task lists. I even tweeted it because I was so excited!

(2) My sister in spirit, Natoya Hall, sat with me and we spoke about a skill that I hold deep inside of me. After a bit of discussion, the word that we settled on was "alchemy".

Thus was birthed my new title "Strategic Alchemist"!

I've noticed the wordpress community has more access to different blogs using pages such as tags and freshly pressed. Whereas in blogger, you have a "next blog" button or you have to look through other people's followers.

*2019 Update: I’m a squarespace user now :)

Now that I'm back at the ripe ol' age of 21, I want to expand my opportunities.
