THE VISION BOARD BOOK FEATURED IN AUSTRALIA'S CREATIVE THERAPIES BLOG & NATURAL HEALTH STORE

Joyceandbooknew by Joyce Schwarz in www.visionboard.info on 9/17/10, email: thevisionboard@aol.com, www.ihaveavision.org

It's so thrilling to see THE VISION BOARD the secret to an extraordinary life traveling around the world and spreading the word that you can live your best possible life!
LATEST INTERNATIONAL POSTCreative1 FROM SUNBURY, AUSTRALIA where we hear from  Suzana Djilas-Gaalthe Creative Therapies Consultant at Natural Health Sunbury, and editor of the Creative Therapies blog.  She is a professional artist, writer and teacher.

 Blogger note: Sunbury, Australia is 41km (approx 25 miles northwest of Melbourne, Australia) so it's terrific to hear from Suzanna with her review and endorsement for THE VISION BOARD book.

We were intrigued by the gorgeous shop and classes and consultations that Natural Health store in Sunbury offers. Scroll down to see some of the pix from their website.

EXCERPT FIRST: BUT first here is an excerpt from Suzanna's review of THE VISION BOARD book: Creating a Vision Board is a fairly straightforward process, and information about how to create one is readily and freely available via the internet.  However, The Vision Board by Joyce Schwarz is an excellent resource for anyone who is interested in a deeper understanding of the power of the Visioning process and more detailed suggestions on how to create and activate your Vision Boards. It also describes how Vision Boards can be fashioned for specific areas of our lives (Relationships, Gratitude, Wealth and Wellbeing), and different types of Vision Boards.  It contains many colour photographs of Vision Boards submitted from all over the world in various forms – it’s just gorgeous to look at – and a rich tapestry of accompanying stories from the people who created them...

Here are some pix from Suzanna's gorgeous blog which you can now follow at: Creative Therapies - http://creativetherapies.wordpress.com/

Thanks to Suzana for embedding the original video for THE VISION BOARD in her blog. If you'd like to embed any of our more than 50 videos in your blog -- please feel free to go to: http://youtube.com/infojcom and choose which video fits your topic.Creative1

Look at the inside of the pretty interior of Natural Health Sunbury. Wow we hope we can visit there someday & sign books and introduce some of our new products including YES -- Vision Cards -- so amazing because Suzana actually mentions the need for those in her blog. Plus of course we will have our new children's line including the whole series on " BE YOUR OWN SUPERHERO!" (more on that later).

C5 

Thanks again to Suzana from Sunbury, Australia for letting us know what's 'up' with THE VISION BOARD book 'down under'. If you've seen THE VISION BOARD book anywhere in the world or have it in your store inside or outside of the USA and want to review it or feature it in your blog -- let us know! Of course if you don't have it in your store and want a review copy -- let us know too and we'll have our wonderful publisher Harper Collins Publishing, Collins Design send you a review copy!

Barbara Kline, Serial Entrepreneur and Founder Breakthru Center Located In Corralles, New Mexico Guest Speaker At Vision Board Bootcamp Podcast Monday, Sept 13, 2010

 
Joyceandbooknew by Joyce Schwarz, best-selling author THE VISION BOARD book and founder of The Vision Board Institute, www.visionboardinstitute.com email: thevisionboard@aol.com

It's my pleasure to announce that Barbara Kline, serial entrepreneur and founder of Breakthru Center in Corralles, New Mexico is our featured speaker today, Monday, Sept 13 at 12 noon PST .

Kline Shown left, Barbara Kline, serial entrepreneur and founder of Breakthru Center in Corralles, New Mexico.

The topic for September 13 tele-workshop is:

   Moving Beyond the Launch stage for your business

  Mini-preview of Kline's presentation: “ Moving beyond the fledgling stage of getting the company organized and the first infusions of capital in place is a challenge for many founders. Continuing to nurture the four pillars of entrepreneurial success including passion, technical competence, leadership, and adequate funding is critical. However without the ability to develop policies, procedures and a management team, any business will flounder”, said Kline.

Kline’s background includes extensive experience in helping companies, including six that she founded or co-founded, develop into growing concerns.  Her inspiration in founding the Breakthru Center came from conversations she has had with angel investors, venture capitalists, and frustrated entrepreneurs in California and New Mexico.

ABOUT: Breakthru Center

located in Corrales New Mexico was founded in 2010 with the guiding vision to serve as a centralized resource for advanced entrepreneurial training and advisory services for up-scaling emerging companies from the start-up phase to sustainable ongoing enterprises. 

 KEY INITIATIVES: Barbara Kline, founder and director of Breakthru Center explains that one of the key initiatives of Breakthru Center will be in guiding funded start-ups through their initial development phase and providing 21st Century systems to thrive not just survive despite economic fluctuations.

She explains that while many organizations today focus on the “start up”, entrepreneurs are, for the most part, left on their own once they get the company organized and the first infusions of capital in place.

How to make an Earth Day Vision Board & Go Greener by Joyce Schwarz, bestselling author THE VISION BOARD book

Bookbh By Joyce Schwarz, keynote speaker, best-selling author THE VISION BOARD book, www.visionboard.info

One of the most eco-friendly ways to celebrate Earth Day with your family, office mates and school class is to create a Vision Board.

 You’ve heard of Vision Boards right? Maybe you’ve heard them called dream boards or wish boards or inspiration boards or even a wheel of life etc.
Okay, now here is the surprise-- all vision boards are really green and eco-friendly because they are really recycling magazines

STILL WONDERING WHAT IS A VISION BOARD?

A vision board is a visual map that you design to create virtual touchstones leading to living your best possible life according to THE VISION BOARD author Joyce Schwarz.

The simplest form of a vision board is made by tearing or cutting pictures out of magazines and then pasting them to a poster board. Then you can add what’s called affirmations (positive sayings to enourage you and embellishments like stickers, glitter, or even dried leaves or flowers.  

Author Joyce Schwarz suggests on her blog www.visionboard.info and in her book THE VISION BOARD (www.ihaveavision.org) that you create vision boards for important events in your life like graduation, wedding, birthdays and anniversaries and also design vision boards for key holidays like EARTH DAY to encourage your family to go green.

CUTTING AND PASTING NOT ENOUGH:

Schwarz believes that just cutting and pasting the pictures and adding quotes or motivational words is NOT enough.

She suggests that you begin your vision board creation exercise with a session on visioning (a cross between brainstorming, meditation and improv) so that your vision board can reflect the key or power words that come from your inner voice that part of you that is totally authentic.

“Too many people creating vision boards or teaching vision board design focus on the housekeeping details like what glue to use, how to find your pictures, what size board to put your design on and how to make a pretty collage,” explains Joyce Schwarz

After reviewing more than 1000 vision boards that were submitted for inclusion in my book THE VISION BOARD, Schwarz says, “ I determined that what really matters is including a visioning process so that you feel the essence of why you’re designing the board, not just the step by step details of how to cut and paste pictures and words.”

The #2 error is that people make an EVERYTHING board and include all kinds of pictures for every aspect of their life they can think of even the kitchen sink they want to buy when redesigning their kitchen in 2012.

#1 ERROR MADE IN CREATING VISION BOARDS:

Joyce Schwarz believes that the number one error people make in creating a vision board is to rush to the cut and paste part of the exercise. She adds, “It reminds me a little bit of trying to learn to draw by using a paint by number kit versus expressing your own inner artist in your own style of art whether it is oil colors or pastels or even maybe sculpture or papercrafts.  

The #2 error is that people make an EVERYTHING board and include all kinds of pictures for every aspect of their life they can think of even the kitchen sink they want to buy when redesigning their kitchen in 2012.

So spend some time with your family or team members or take some time to really explore and vision why you want to go greener and what Earth Day means to you personally. Because one person at the time linked together for a common cause,  we can change the world!


REMIX: RECYCLING MAGAZINES & OTHER PRINT MATERIALS
Be assured by creating Vision Boards using images from old magazines and other printed material such as direct mail flyers, invitations, posters, wallpaper and even newspaper clippings, you ARE RECYCLING!

There are several regional and national programs organized just to recycle magazines (more on those later, especially the ones from the MPA (Magazine Publishers Assn) and the City of New York.

SO TO START CREATING AN ECO-FRIENDLY VISION BOARD:
A) Gather old magazines, newspapers, printed materials including greeting cards, cartoons from newspapers, grocery circulars and catalogs in a large basket.

B) Be sure if you purchase any new background paper or materials that they are recycled too. Recycled posterboard is available but you may want to create your board using such eco-friendly materials as flax or organic cotton fabrics or even the back of old paintings or posters you already have on your wall--continuing the recycling circle.

C) Gather up found objects, paperclips, broken jewelry, ribbons from a birthday party or wedding shower, stamps and stickers from envelopes (you can re-attach with a glue stick later)

D) Be sure any paints or marker pens you use are also eco-friendly. In fact considering buying a whole pack of these and sharing them with your neighbors so that they can create an eco-friendly board too!
Or use natural materials. I've seen vision boards created with charcoal, with waters colored by natural herbs & flowers and almost water-painted onto the board.

Or even consider painting (with eco-friendly paints) a large bolder or old board you find near your garage

E) Consider making your own recycled hand-made paper from old paper --the back of old posters, the back of leftover wallpaper or even on the back of an old awning or window shade!

F) If you're framing your board, be sure to recycle an old frame that you have in your house or garage or to pick one up at a flea market or thrift store in your neighborhood.

Examples include:

I recycle everything I can.

I am recycling my kitchen scraps too now.

I turn off the water when I brush my teeth.

I have a filter for my tap water.

I am simplifying my life.

I buy only what I absolutely need to live.

I make my footsteps on earth as light as they can be.

I recycle for others when I see an opportunity.

I make sure what I buy is carbon-neutral.

Pictures for your eco-board.

One of the fun ways to get the right pictures for your eco board is to make a list of those pix you'd like to see on the board such as: a) a home garden you are planting b) a method of composting you are starting in your group/family c) Past pictures of your family in the outdoors -- climbing or hiking or enjoying the earth at places you've visited --yes, even if they are near and part of your home town area. They don't have to be at an exotic location

TRAVEL -- another option is to gather some travel brochures at your local travel agency or from the travel section of your newspaper or favorite website and put those on the board planning on where you'd like to visit that IS eco-friendly

G) Gather the raw materials together. Spread out an old blanket or tablecloth to cover the creation area (a table or an area of a floor or even do it outside on your patio).

H) Begin by making a list with your group of the Eco affirmations they would like to keep in the next year and for the rest of their lives!
