Wendy’s Window-Succeeding With Passion: Designing The Life You’ve Always Dreamed Of!
May 23, 2019
I’ve been in the business of helping people figure out their lives in different ways for many years now.  What I’ve learned is that most people go through the motions of living, but they rarely live a life that is truly fulfilled.  They search for the next thing verses enjoying the moment and finding the beauty in the present.  There’s nothing wrong with growing and doing new things, but when we do it to fill a void or to run from something in our lives, it is not acceptable. If we want to live the life we’ve dreamed of, or more importantly the life we were designed to live, we must find our passion and purpose and live every moment to fulfill it. We have to stop putting our value in the wrong things. ... read more »

Wendy’s Window: What is the Plus in the PLUS Awards?
April 4, 2019
I’ve always been grateful for people who go above and beyond and have a heart for helping others. As a child I experienced abandonment by my biological mother and sexual abuse by my father.  I was raised primarily by my paternal grandmother who instilled certain core values into me that have guided my life.  My grandmother encouraged my activities in school, church and community and because of the various activities I was involved with, I became a “product of the community.”  As I worked in the community, the community sowed back into my life. Many people went above and beyond to help me, and they became the PLUS in my life. ... read more »

Wendy’s Window: King is Queen
March 21, 2019
Many of us are familiar with Gayle King, but we usually think of her as Oprah’s bestie.  A few years ago, while attending the California Women’s Conference when Maria Shriver was California’s First Lady and the leader of the conference, I was given a chance to go back stage and meet Ms. King. I found her very approachable and friendly.  It was a short encounter, but enough time to leave a positive impression on me. Although Gayle has a strong personality and she has accomplished many things during her career, I think some people can under estimate her because of her relationship with Oprah, but don’t sleep on her because she is a queen. ... read more »

Wendy’s Window-The International Women of Courage Celebration Comes to Los Angeles!
March 7, 2019
In 1980, President Jimmy Carter proclaimed the first week of March as Women’s History Week.  Seven years later, Congress declared the entire month of March as Women’s History Month. I find it sadly ironic that we need legislative reminders to celebrate and remember the accomplishments of various people and communities.  However, I am grateful that the work of women is being celebrated nonetheless! Across the country, March 8thhas been designated as, “International Women’s Day” where people celebrate and honor women worldwide. ... read more »
Wendy’s Window: Harold & Belle’s Restaurant Turns 50!
March 6, 2019
So, whenever I have to work in L.A., I always look for local spots to hold meetings. One of my favorite locations has always been Harold & Belle’s Restaurant.  I even had my own special table where the staff would seat me whenever it was available. Long before I ever had the chance to meet the family, Harold & Belle’s felt like a second home to me. ... read more »
Wendy’s Window: ‘Civil Rights: Progression or Regression?’
February 21, 2019
I was born of a White mother and a Black father in 1961 in Southern California during a time when America was experiencing segregation across the nation.  Although many of us in California did not feel the same effects as many of our relatives in the South, segregation was still alive and well throughout the country. The Civil Rights Movement was in its beginning stages and the 50’s and 60’s were pivotal in changing the face and climate of America. The Civil Rights Movement was organized by African Americans with the goal to help end racial discrimination and provide equal rights to all under the law. ... read more »
Wendy’s Window- ‘Are You Feeling Loved?’
February 14, 2019
When I think back as far as elementary school, I remember how exciting it was to go to the store and buy the packages of Valentine’s Day Cards. It was such a big deal to bring them home and write your name on the cards, along with the names of your classmates on each of the envelopes.  I found it interesting how there were usually just enough cards in the package to give one to each student in my class and a special one for the teacher. It was as if the card companies knew exactly how many children were in classrooms across America.  On Valentine’s Day we would have a little party that usually consisted of a heart-shaped cookie and punch, and we would go around and give each other our valentines. If my memory serves me correctly, there always seemed to be that “special someone” you hoped would give you a card and if they didn’t your little heart would drop to the floor. ... read more »
