Noreen Sumpter is my Name

Noreen Sumpter is my name. I am a personal life coach and the host of Beyond Potential: Live Life Your Way, a 2-year-old live radio and podcast. I am past Vice President of NAWBO NYC, President of Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, Business Referral Group, Board Member of Fort Green Park, friend, colleague, Founder and Partner of Lunch Lady NYC, and a lover of life. I have been featured in Oprah Winfrey’s O Magazine, Reader’s Digest and was a guest on This American Life.
I founded Live Life Your Way, a program to address the demands of successful and amazing people who are stuck in their lives in ways that trap and inhibit their personal and professional growth and self-esteem. The higher you go in life, the less you can talk and share what’s going on with you. I am a lover of life and people.  I believe that no matter what you do in your life if you love it and you are working at it, the work is your love made visible. “Work is love made visible,” says Kahlil Gibran.  
I have been in the United States (NYC) since 1985, and I have loved every last minute of it.  I love the people. I love the reputation that we have as New Yorkers because not one bit of it is true.  We are loving, caring, straight-forward, no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is people.  However, we will take a moment out of our hustle to help a fellow human being on their journey who is in a fix.  We all know that we have a purpose to live, and when we find it, we go hard to manifest it. When we find it, we live life by it.  I know and I have seen that when we find out the purpose, we live by it and our wealth will come by it a lot more easily and joyfully because we will love our work and we love our life.  Our purpose has a trickle-down effect which causes and spreads happiness.
After being and living in New York, from London since 1985 and arriving in NY with $60 and the love of a good man. I chose to exercise my right to become a citizen of the United States of America.  So on January 3rd, I took the Oath of Allegiance and became a citizen of the United States of America.  Swearing the Oath of Allegiance was a challenging experience.  As a non-American that became an American,  I promised to bear arms and fight for the United States of America. However, living in New York, I always thought I had the right to be a part of the American Dream. However, on January 3, I realized that it did not fully belong to me.  After taking the Oath, I feel connected.  I feel authentic that the American Dream is really and authentically mine, and it is now my reality to create my dream however, I choose. That is my bearing arms, that I will fight and defend the constitution and laws of the United States of America… a very strange feeling.  I will also bear arms in my work, continuing to stand for my clients so that they will love their life and value themselves and live life their way.
I am excited and happy not just with becoming as US Citizen, but with stepping heavily into a new decade and starting newly and leaving my mark in and on the lives of the people I meet in America. I now have a vote, and I will be contributing and doing my duty.  Happy New Year!

Focus on the Big Picture

When I want to start or create something that I have never done before- be it exercise or something that calls for growth, development, and consistency- I find that it is important for me to take a look at the whole picture and then take bite-size pieces that I create instead of trying to figure out.  Why not figure out?  Well, I can only figure out things I have done before.  So if it’s something that I have not created before, there is no way to figure it out. You need to be honest, committed, and supportive which can show up in many different ways that I have not yet figured out.  Take myself, for instance, I have been working out on and off for years.  I have been consistent with my inconsistencies.  Long periods of working out then stopping.  However, the stopping periods have become shorter. I have learned that I stopped because I wanted to experience immediate success and then got discouraged. (Folly) Well, I know and have rediscovered that immediate success is possible and not possible.  You might ask, “What is Noreen talking about?”  Let me just say that exercise gives incremental success.  With exercise it is something I feel.  However, I cannot see it.  Let’s look at doing push-ups.  Doing 10 in the beginning was difficult.  However, when I had a coach, or I was being responsible, my coach would not let me stop.  His name was Dr. Evil.  I’d do 10 push-ups 3 times a week in my overall workout.  Then the following week, the same amount of push-ups became easier. Let’s look at me running on the “Dreadmill”, or treadmill. Five minutes was forever when I started – lungs busting out, wanting to vomit down my T-shirt and on the coach.  As I continued, it became easier. I was looking for instant results in my body. Did I lose 1/4 inch? No.  What I have since learned with my on again off again workout pattern is:

1. I do not like working out.  However, working out loves me. 
2. My BMI does not happen in the gym or on the “Dreadmill”; it happens in the kitchen.
3. I have committed to an overall vision of my health- big picture of what I need to do to create better health.

This means I do not have to like working out. I can enjoy working out. I can create a good understand and structure for what I put in my mouth.  I will get fitter, tighter, leaner and experience overall greatness inside my body.  So, I have learned to cut myself a good amount on slack.  Stop when I need to and start again when I’m ready and be responsible for the results I get or do not get and the pain I have to experience when I don’t wash, rinse and repeat the process I have learned. In conclusion, everything I do is a commitment, and my commitment is consistency. I do not have to do anything alone. I don’t have to like it. It lives in my commitment to my health.  


Dream Big and End the Cycle

I am powerful.

I am passionate.

I love to take action.  

I know that I can be successful.  

Do you say things like this about yourself?

You know these things about yourself yet know something is still missing?  

Well, if you are reading this note, you’re in the correct place.

You’re powerful, passionate, action-oriented, and successful. However, you can’t see your eyeballs, and you require some reflection. The mirror in your bathroom is not enough, and it can be annoying because you’re not getting any answers.  You might be sick of this hum that you keep hearing.

Your biggest challenge is that you’re an extraordinary achiever and the people in your circle are not playing at the level that you are. You might be dumbing yourself down, plunging head first into an abyss of frustration that is hindering you and holding you back from what is possible in your life.

I am an expert at helping you go beyond your potential to live life your way. I will help you reach your levels of success by coaching you to connect to your truth and step into your power, success, creativity, and abundance.   

You have been doing what you know to do which now looks like a what I call the wash, rinse, and repeat cycle.  You might have heard it that said before, or you’ve experienced it. You might even have a checklist to the fact.  However, that process, despite your success, is losing its effectiveness, and the sequence is not going to provide you with the success you want.

In fact, the qualities that have had you experience this success are dated and are losing their juice which might be causing you frustration and, in turn, a loss of self. You might even hear yourself saying things like, “I always know what to do and now I don’t, and that is not me.”  Well, my dear, it is you. If you keep doing what you have always done, you will get what you have always gotten. I am here to tell you, you’re dated, and it might be time for an upgrade.

Through my work, I have discovered and experienced qualities or ways of being that help high achievers to be successful and to move forward. Being held back can become a curse and a blessing at the same time, making you a jack of all and a master of none.  

You’re a visionary; you’re able to dream big and create.  You have an unbelievable amount of projects. You have incompleted projects, and you have so many options which are detrimental to your success. You know these people.  They are filled with ideas and have a hard time starting.

Exponential success. You experience success quickly.  However, you judge, access, and make yourself wrong because it seems like you’re not working hard enough. And you suffer a sense of worthlessness (your private hell) because of your judgments.  People around think you’re amazing and powerful. However, you don’t feel good enough, smart enough. So you’re hiding out and feeling like a fake because you’re able to create exponential success in a short period.  You get what you want when you take action.

You know you’re not as productive as you could be.

You know you don’t have to work as hard as the average person, and if you don’t watch out, you’ll know you can get stuck in your life. Not being as productive as possible, and you know it.  Your truth is only you know that you’re underperforming because most people think you’re a rock star, and you have no one to hold you accountable to your goals and actions.

You are a problem-solver. You get inspired and energized by challenges.  Where most people struggle, burn out around problems, you solve them in a beat.  This has you keeping to yourself and struggling to meet your long-term goals without support and accountability.  

You never get the support you require because you do not share. People think that you don’t need it.  People are intimidated by you because they see you as a person that doesn’t require help. So, you are a lone ranger who is not accountable to anyone, not even yourself, missing out on creating the relationships with people who would be so happy to help you.  

You focus on the future, not living in the present moment.  So, you work toward the future, forgetting to live in the present, missing out on the life that you want to create.

As a high achiever, you do not get the opportunity to engage with people in a whole, complete, and perfect way.  The higher your status- be it a career, economics, or just your way of being- people around you never know the true you.  You don’t share and open up to others, and in turn, people are not open to speaking their truth. It is hard for them to be there because you cannot say what your “truth” is. When you are a top performer, you have a small number of people who are able or willing to speak, be courageous, and say the things that you need to hear. As a high achiever, it can be a lonely world.  

I am the only person in my client’s world who will speak honestly with them.  I don’t give you mud covered with icing and tell you it’s cake. It’s mud no matter what. I don’t sugar coat. You pay me for support, truth, reflection, and accountability so that you can fulfill your dreams, goals, and desires.  I tell it to you as I hear it by reflecting back to you so that you can see and hear your bullshit. I am not here to please you. I am your coach. I tell you what others are not bold or courageous enough to say. I coach from an authentic and vulnerable space.

My Perfect Client

  1. My clients inspire me to do great work, and, in turn, they produce great results.
  2. I have high expectations for my clients, and I’m hardcore with them.  I don’t baby them.  
  3. When clients reach their goals, I help them go beyond their potential.  (If Richard Branson didn’t go beyond his potential, he would’ve gone down with Virgin Records.)
  4. My fees inspire clients to invest in themselves so they know their value and know how much they’re worth.
  5. My clients develop confidence and are never lonely at the top of their game. They ask for what they want.  Their energy is abundant, and people want to be around them.
  6. I turn up the heat by asking thought-provoking questions that top performers crave and dig deep to get answers that help my clients meet their desired goals.
  7. I work with interesting, extraordinary people who are committed to being happy in their life.  This is my goal.
  8. I build trust, take risks, make bold requests, lead (powerfully), hide nothing, and hold nothing back.

Connect with me if you are ready to own your voice, speak your truth, and Live Life Your Way!

Let’s Go Beyond Potential!

Love,

Noreen

Focus on what you can achieve. You are human, and you can have whatever you want.  Look at your life and notice that everything you’ve got, you’ve created. All of it.  The things that work and the things that don’t. If the things in your life aren’t serving you, start the change process by owning your voice, speaking your truth and living life your way.  

If you believe you can, you will. Furthermore, it’s none of your business what people think about you. Teachers, parents, and friends say terrible things when we’re young and those words, if you believe them, will crush your spirit.  Don’t let them.  

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today is a day for giving thanks.  I woke from my bed this morning feeling emotional and challenged. During my daily practice of gratitude, I thought about Thanksgiving.  In that moment, I chose to see Thanksgiving for what it means to me.  

I’m not American, and I often forget about Thanksgiving until the week before. However, I see my gratitude for my life in all its iterations, whether in its present state of being up or down, life going the way I want or not. No matter what, I’m grateful.

I’m grateful for the fantastic opportunities I’ve had this year. Thankful for love, for being in a relationship, which at times was beautiful and other times not.  Grateful for learning to keep my heart open when at times I wanted to put it in a vault, slam the door, and keep it there.

I’m grateful for having the opportunity to expand my capacity to give and receive love and be open in ways that I never thought possible.  

I’m grateful to have loved people who have not always enjoyed my friendship the way I wanted, yet accepting that they loved me the way they could. (I’ve been that person; now I have a view from both sides). I’m thankful for my family and for my brothers, even though their love is distant and may appear cold.

I’m grateful for the people and friendships that are no longer physically present in my life- friends who have supported me with my dreams no matter what. When times were not so good or great, you were not forgotten and the memories we created will always live in my cells – for they have helped me grow into the person that I am today.

I’m grateful for my health, for my inner strength to manage, accept, and control my diabetes, for being able to make myself right whereas before I would have trashed myself for failing and given up altogether.  

I’m grateful for my amazing clients who provide me with financial security, for their love and their families, taking themselves on in ways that have empowered them and the people around them to be open and live in the unlived parts of their lives.  I’m grateful to have a career that I’m in love with and to be appreciated by clients, old and new, as well as the ones that I haven’t met yet.  

I’m grateful to know love and to receive love; it must be given with no thought of its return. Love is my gift for which no return is demanded.

I’m grateful for my economic challenges, for learning and putting into practice the understanding that money is a means to acquire goods and services and not an actual measure of my worth.

I’m grateful for all the books that I’ve read and for the authors, teachers, lovers, and friends who contributed to my dreams for if my dreams didn’t manifest, I wouldn’t expand.

Giving thanks. I give thanks for the power to love, think, laugh, imagine, create, plan, and speak.  I give thanks for honoring my gifts.  I can choose to cry for unfulfilled dreams, let failure beat me down or let circumstances trample my self-esteem and sacrifice my potential for the illusion of security, but I choose not to. I honor my individuality. Thank you for my humanity and the humanity of us all on this planet.  

This Thanksgiving, find one thing you can authentically be thankful for and share it with another soul.

Not sure what you’re thankful for? Reach out to me, and we can talk about it! Visit my website www.noreensumptercoach.com and make an appointment for a FREE 15 minute call and I’m positive we’ll find plenty of things to be grateful for!

Love yourself! Until next time!

Setting Boundaries at Work

Group of Multiethnic Busy People Working in an Office

When you get hired to do a job or work for a corporation they’ve hired you because you are the right person for the job, you fit their needs and you have their desired skill set.  In turn, you’re excited about being the one chosen.  You fought the good fight and won the job.  Whoo hoo.

You’re excited about your job description.  You fit their budget; you’re fine with the prescribed salary and if you’re not they’ve hooked you with some sort of promise of a bonus or perk.  The day that you joined the company of your dreams, you received a large binder with all you need to know about the company.  If you’re anything like me, you’ll skim through it and you’re golden.  The binder is filled with the do’s and don’ts and the musts and must nots, it’s clear that these are the company boundaries and rules for being a member of company.  In essence they are rules of their game.

Fast Forward: the novelty of being the new person has worn off now. You fit snugly into your position. You have been on the job a few weeks or months, you’re smart enough and you pretty much have a general lay of the land by now.  In space of those months, you are seeing or should be seeing your boundaries or the boundaries that you see that you have to create for yourself.

As an employee do you have clear concise boundaries that you play by?  If so, are they something that can be laid out clearly to your bosses and co-workers, or are they boundaries that only you know about and everyone else has to read your mind to understand?  Do you have boundaries for your performance on the job?

It is important that you understand what it is you will and will not tolerate so you can discover what works for you and what does not work, so you can organize yourself in a way that is makes your life on the job comfortable.  This is an opportunity to help you to see where you compromise and how it can affect you mentally, physically, and emotionally.   Is it important for you have timelines for your work?  Is it important that you take lunch and breaks for effective productivity throughout the day.  How important is it for your co-workers to respect your space and the work that you do?  Can you and do you welcome positive criticism or do you see criticism as a put down?  How important is it for you to take vacation of wellbeing days with the confines of you allowable time off.  Is overtime mandatory and if it is mandatory is it something that you can balance so that your life is balanced or is overtime something that you need  to meet your economic obligation?  How important is it for you to get positive feedback and approval from your bosses? Is feedback something that you can share so that you can do your work and feel appreciated?  Are you confident sharing that something is not in your job description in a respectful manner or are you the kind of person that catches an attitude readily?  Are you comfortable stating these needs in a confident way.  How important is the way you’re spoken to on the job to you and if this need is not met, can you handle it in a way that it is not deem personal and sort it out.  As a coach, I often tell people that anyone can ask you for anything, and if you have healthy boundaries your answers can be from a healthy place none personal place. If your boundaries are unhealthy you will take everything person and be on the defensive side of the fence.

Practicing truth with yourself gives you clarity and peace of mind which helps know what  your  boundaries and rules are.   It is important that your boundaries are clear in who you are being on the job.  It helps you be clear about your responsibilities, your attitudes and how you get along with others.   It is also important that you be clear in your communication and the promises that you make to yourself and to others.

Practicing self care on your job is really important:

  • Scheduling a regular lunch hour. (Especially for people that are busy and love their jobs.)
  • Having regular breaks (giving your mind and body a rest period)
  • Taking time off for your medical checkups and when you are sick (infecting others with flu virus etc)
  • Being honest about deadlines. (Can I deliver or not)
  • Taking your vacation
  • Being an honest team player
  • Teaching people how you want to be treated.
  • Respecting your space and others
  • Being gentle with yourself regarding your abilities
  • Not making your co-workers or yourself wrong
  • Being responsible with amount of overtime you (families and friends need you also)
  • Practice work and Life Balance

Last and not least, it is very important that you enjoy your job and you feel productive to generate a feeling of contribution.

Live Life Your Way,

Noreen Sumpter

I am featured in O Magazine November Issue on the Iyanla, Fix My Life! Column

How this came about:  I was sent an email through a dear friend of mine, Carol Kelly who is an amazing journalist. She suggested that maybe I should consider entering the request that O Magazine had made. Carol said “Maybe Iylanla can support you with your family issue.”  You know when you see something and you know that you must do it, but you have this feeling of !@#$ it, but you know that your spirit is telling you it is the right thing to do? Well that is what happened to me. I saw it, walked away from my computer for about 2 seconds and walked back and took action. Then I emailed the following:

I am a Personal Life Coach and I am experiencing a challenge that I would love to have Iyanla Vanzant support me with my brothers. 

I have 4 brothers and 2 sisters all together there are 7 of us.  We are currently divided. 3 of my brothers are not speaking to 1 brother and 2 sisters.  

Mother has Alzheimer’s in England.  Upset, hurt, anger and disagreements are looming. 

I have been reaching out to my brothers for a good amount of time (years).  I am a Personal Life Coach and I support everyone to win in their lives, and this is my challenge that I am not winning.  I love my brothers and am at the end of my tether.  

Yes, I would welcome Iyanla’s support in winning and having our family back by having us transform this very sticky situation. I love my brothers and would never have thought in 100 years that we would be in this situation.  The coach needs a coach. Yes, I am open to transforming my current relationship with my brothers.   

Noreen Sumpter

That e-mail resulted in an opportunity to Coach with Iyanla Vanzant. I can tell you that it was an amazing opportunity.  Iyanla is incredible.  I did what I was told for 40 days.  It was amazing. Confronting myself and doing the work daily. The shoe was on the other foot.

I am still doing a lot of what she requested of me.  What it has provided me is a clearer picture of who I am, what I am here to accomplish and a lot of the issues that I am dealing with or not dealing with are not real.  They are opportunities to grow when we as humans are confronted in life. I am coach and it is great to know that I am human and I remain open to life’s challenges.

Week Three of Calling in the One Unapologetically: Releasing people, places, things, experiences, regrets

CItou picture 1[2]

 

It is ok to allow yourself to be human by allowing yourself to mess up, dress down, fall short, bomb out.  It is okay to do what you want with you yourself, your life, body and dreams.  Understand that there a chance that you will not please everyone all the time not even yourself.  There will be times when you will disappoint people and with that they will be people close to you such as your parents, friends and relatives and again even yourself.  It is important to know that life is always changing and transforming.  You are transforming in ways that you will or will not see.  There are things that we’ll experience, for instance, we’ll be economically, emotionally, educationally and physically challenged.  I was recently, economically challenged after not experiencing any challenges in years.  In addition, I have also, been physically challenged with Diabetes and weight gain.  I have been overweight for years.  I triumphed over both these physical challenges and will continue to overcome them for the rest of my life.  Hence, lifestyle changes. I never once thought that being economically challenged, would be an opportunity to grow.  It is, I am still learning and exploring. There is an ebb and flow up and down experience to money.  It is not static experience, even though it is not something, that is tangible it is a mindset conversation that I am learning the fundamental shifting.  I never once thought that I would ever say that being economically challenged is interesting and that I could learn about and transform.   Also our dreams can take a turn and become difficult to manifest. It is also a learning experience.  We have choices and we can choose to be successful or unsuccessful we will be successful or unsuccessful positive and negative of our overall success. Within the realm of success there are times when success does not feel the way we think it should be.  It is an individual discovery.

Last week was week 3 of Calling in the One Unapologetically. It was The Release, we released ways, behavior, thoughts etc. that no longer worked for us like blame, shame etc., and we embraced forgiveness, power new behaviors and experiences. We created an environment fit for the intention of   release to happen.  We released through a water ceremony and used candles. We supported each other in ways that we needed.  So that we could choose newly and live life and see vast array of gifts the universe has to offer.  I’m was and remain excited about life and its constant changes.  I released many experiences that no longer fit in my life or that I no longer have space for.  Below are a few things I removed from my life.

I released: worthlessness: Worthlessness came from my Jamaican father who called me (Watless) worthless because I did not do wash dishes or chores, I sucked my thumb and played with my hair, or that my room was always messy. The haunting of worthless gave me no peace even into adulthood and rears it head from time to time when things in my life are not working or going as well as I’d like them to.  I have had to always prove my worthiness even though my father has been dead well over 20 plus years. His words still rang and something ring in my ear when or if I did not meet a certain standard.  It provided me no freedom.  So I am ever vigilant of the noise.

Some the things I released and embraced were as followed:

I embraced:  That I am worthy, I have purpose and I bring light.

I release: Shame and being shamed

I embrace:  There is nothing about me to be ashamed of.  I have an opportunity to pass through whatever shame I have made up to experience the other side of what I desire and see the miracle I am.

I release: myself from negative conversations about money and results.

I embrace: Positive and negative energy around money as an opportunity to see what I am dealing with and as a result to use them as a tool.  I honor myself and my energy to constantly create from nothing everything I desire and to know that results are always changing.

I release stories that are made up about me and that are not mine

I embrace: Accepting that people will make up stories about me and that the only story that matters are the ones that I make up about myself.  I have choice

I release: All thoughts, feelings, ideas, and actions and ways of being that I have not yet released and don’t know I am to release

I embrace: Courage to release things that are not for my higher good, people, places and things.

 

I am also letting go of some of the kind of friendships that no longer serve or inspired or where I am not being inspiring.  However, letting go does not mean ending.  It just means releasing them in a way where I have space to recreate what I truly desire.  We cannot hoard relationships like objects, waiting for them to shift.  The shift must happen with you.  We cannot expect anything from them we have to have the freedom to create and love freely.  We all have needs and expectations that are different they arrive at different times when you are able to learn, and experience our needs.

Why do I need a life coach?
You are highly intelligent and well put together, you got it going on but you feel that you’re not going anywhere. The only thing that’s changing is time and your age. (Yes, I went there) you have the trappings of a good life, but something’s missing? You feel empty and confused and you don’t know why. Do you come home from a successful day of work and you look in the mirror, see a beautiful woman but your just not happy. How is it for you? What do you want? What is important to you. What do you really care about? Are you afraid to take personal risks? Are you afraid to put yourself out there to be truly heard?

What can a life coach do for me?
After working with me, you will have inner confidence. You will achieve true sense of happiness by creating a strong sense of who you truly are, letting go of your fears, gaining the courage to take personal risks and action. You will begin to take deliberate steps to go after, find and do what is important to you. By removing the shame of things you have kept hidden for a lifetime, you will begin to really take care of yourself and develop relationships that recognize your inner value and self-worth. By developing a long lasting relationship with yourself first. You will develop the freedom you want for your life. By creating time and relationships, you will get tools that will last a life time.

Brooklyn: Living the Dream Larger Than Life

Over the next few weeks, Noreen Sumpter, a Personal http://ts4arts.org/sales/ Life Coach will be interviewing people in a series called “Brooklyn: Living the Dream Larger Than Life.”

Brooklyn: Living the Dream Larger Than Life’s Noreen Sumpter will be talking with amazing people who are doing just that: living their dream. “Living the dream” means going after what it is you say you want to do, who you want to be and what you want to have in your life.  You are creating your life by doing the things that you are passionate about.  You’re taking risks and receiving what you want.

This week, Living the Dream Larger Than Life features Tony Taylor, owner of the Brooklyn hosiery, Look From London.
Tony can be described as a man who loves, adores and worships the legs of women.  He loves to dress women’s legs, ankles, thighs, and feet.   Winter for Tony is his best and most favorite time of year.

Lokk For London
Tell us why you think you are living the dream larger than life.
I am living the dream larger than life because I’m doing what I love and making a living at it.  I love working in hosiery.  I love women and I love their legs.  My hosiery makes things beautiful and edgy.
<strong>
Why is winter the best time of year for you?</strong>
Winter is when the hosiery business comes alive. This is the time of year when I become a super hero to women’s legs.  It’s when my mission takes effect.  My mission is beauty, protection and empowerment.  I protect and beatify women’s legs from the harshness of the cold, wet and winter weather.  It is during winter when I can get into action and enjoy the fruits of my labor as women begin to wear my designs and new orders come rushing in.
<strong>
How did you get into the hosiery business?</strong>
While in the music business and looking for a record deal in London twenty years ago I saw a lot of interesting legwear in London that I did not see in America.  I was a singer in a Reggae band at the time.  Women were wearing amazing hosiery at the record companies.  We purchased a few and brought them back to USA with us.  Music and fashion go hand in hand.  The rest is, as they say, history.  Look From London was officially started in 1989.  It was music, sex and rock ‘n roll. a winning combo.  I love dressing women.  But most of all I love dressing their legs.

<strong>How come you love dressing women’s legs? What is it about legs that fascinates and inspires you so much?</strong>
Well, the waist to toes is a huge area.  Hosiery draws a lot of attention from men and women, especially when one is wearing a great design.  With a pop of color, the legs get transformed into a vibrant expression, coupled with shape and motion – ready for business.  Hosiery adds a taste and flavor to any fashion trend.  Also, in times of recession, hosiery can transform and update your closet in a very refreshing way by brightening and enlivening any outfit by recycling it and making it perpetually new.  It tells people to focus on my legs.

<strong>What are you passionate about?</strong>
I am passionate about my family, my daughter and my creations.   I love my designs from conceptualization to actualization to when a woman is wearing Look From London in the street, strutting her stuff.  I just love it.
What separates your hosiery from the other hosiery companies?
My hosiery is loud, bold and not for the faint of heart.  Look From London calls for a person who is confident, open and fully self-expressed.  We service everyone in all communities to wear Look From London.  All genders and all sexual orientations wear our hosiery.

<strong>Your hosiery energy is so bold and big.</strong>
Well, what’s the point in skirting on the edge of life when you can be in life making a statement that packs a big punch?  Look From London hosiery makes a strong statement. Look From London is for the person who is edgy. I sometimes hear that Look From London is a little too much for some people, but there are items that may appeal to people who when ready want to stretch the boundaries.  If you know yourself as loud, proud, and living larger than life, then Look from London is for you. www.LookfromLondon.com.

<strong>How long have you been in Brooklyn and why Brooklyn?</strong>
Brooklyn is and has always been a place that has a lot of power and is filled with all kinds of things going on with different kinds of people and it is because of its diversity that Brooklyn has always provided me with a lot of inspiration and creativity.  One of my favorite things to say about Look from London is “Born in London; raised in Brooklyn” That is my motto and that’s how I see it. It took being in Brooklyn to raise my company.

<strong>How long has Look From London been around? </strong>
Look From London has been in Brooklyn for twenty years.  We employ people from Brooklyn, we create almost everything in Brooklyn.  Our factory is right here on Hart Street in Clinton Hill.  We are “Brooklyn Massive.”

<strong>Do you think it is important for you to do what you love?</strong>
Absolutely, without a doubt.  I could not think of doing something I do not enjoy or that does not challenge me.  In business just like my hosiery, I have to be bold, creative and self-expressed.  I love what I do and it’s not up for discussion. Things that I don’t enjoy I don’t give energy to.
Is your voiced expressed in the business?

Not only is my voice expressed, but the voice of everyone who wears hosiery from Look From London is fully self-expressed.  I still sing and create music. Hosiery provides me another form of expression.

How to be Happy at Work

When you get hired to do a job or work for a corporation, they’ve hired you because you are the right person for the job. You fit their needs and you have their desired skill set. In turn, you’re excited about being the one chosen. You fought the good fight and won. Whoo hoo.
You’re excited about your job description. You fit their budget; you’re fine with the prescribed salary and if you’re not they’ve hooked you with some sort of promise of a bonus or perk. The day that you joined the company of your dreams, you received a large binder with all you need to know about the company. If you’re anything like me, you’ll skim through it and you’re golden. The binder is filled with the does and don’ts and the musts and must nots, it’s clear that these are the company’s boundaries and rules for being a member of company. In essence they are rules of their game.

Skip ahead a few months:

The novelty of being the new person has worn off now. You fit snugly into your position. You have been on the job a few weeks or months, you’re smart enough and you pretty much have a general lay of the land by now. What are your boundaries or the boundaries that you see that you have to create for yourself.
As an employee do you have clear concise boundaries that you play by? If so, are they something that can be laid out clearly to your bosses and co-workers, or are they boundaries that only you know about and everyone else has to read your mind to understand? Do you have boundaries for your performance on the job?
It is important that you understand what it is you will and will not tolerate so you can discover what works for you and what does not work. This will enable you to organize yourself in a way that makes your life on the job comfortable. This is an opportunity to help you to see where you compromise and how it can affect you mentally, physically, and emotionally. Is it important for you have timelines for your work? Is it important that you take lunch and breaks for effective productivity throughout the day? How important is it for your co-workers to respect your space and the work that you do? Can you and do you welcome positive criticism or do you see criticism as a put down? How important is it for you to take vacation or well-being days within the confines of your allowable time off? Are you comfortable stating these needs in a confident way?

What do I do as a coach?

I often tell people that anyone can ask you for anything, and if you have healthy boundaries your answers can be from a healthy place, not a personal place. If your boundaries are unhealthy, you will take everything personally and be on the defensive side of the fence.
Practicing truth with yourself gives you clarity and peace of mind will help you know what your boundaries and rules are. It is important that your boundaries are clear in who you are being on the job. It helps you to be clear about your responsibilities, your attitudes and how you get along with others. It is important that you be clear in your communication and the promises that you make to yourself and to others.
