Victoria on Building a Team of Support

As Victoria continues her commitment to believing in wealth for herself she finds more signposts and opportunities for growth along the way. Here Victoria continues her story…

Building a TEAM of SUPPORT;  I asked the Universe to assist and guide me to find the ways to make my boutique, Que Linda; a destination point.  I want people to know who we are, what we have to offer them, so they may come visit us to help on their journey.

Last Thursday night; I worked selling my friend’s hair product at the LA County Fair.  From the moment I got there until the lights were shut-off by the fair staff, we were going non-stop! We were educating and informing customers while making sales.

In 5 hours, our number of transactions averaged a cash register sale every 5 minutes!  Our minimum sale was $77.20, WOW!  I could NOT talk fast enough; questions were coming so fast as we hustled to ring up sales and package items; we barely had time for a one second break!

People were coming to us; they were LOOKING for our booth.  Many had heard about the product; they wanted and needed education, information and guidance to assist in making a decision to purchase for themselves.  The results…our education, our information and our guidance lead to people wanting to make the investment in the product. If the fair had not forced the close of the building, we would have kept on selling the rest of the night.

What I asked the Universe for is now being revealed; it has been shown to me right in front of  my eyes, WITH my effort as well.

Now the idea is to apply these foundational step to my own business. To ALLOW for my business to receive the same effects.

The ideology, the practice, and the “way of life” existence correlate with both my friends and my business, so now to take all of it and apply it to my business.

When the fair is over, I plan to ask my friend to assist my business with her way of promoting and marketing; which I have been missing to help my business.  I want to continue the flow from her business to mine, without stopping, because the fair has stopped…now to switch to keeping the flow going in my business location.

I know my friend’s business relies on the support and staffing of “friends” and customers who LOVE her product! I am now looking to reach out to those who LOVE our services and “offerings”; asking each one to “work” in helping us build and expand my business as a “destination point.” 

Already, I have a customer who wants to “assist” by re-working our website  Que Linda Boutique, by updating, re-building and create an on-line shopping cart. This will help with the extension of sales and service bookings, while promoting who we are…Stacy now becomes part of our “team.” 

Say a Little Prayer

Yesterday was a pretty busy day for me. In the afternoon, I had a client and afterwards I taught a class. My client is a poet. It was her birthday and so, along with a couple of other goodies…I decided I wanted to provide a special gift.

The evening before, was Open Mic in the space where my coaching office is located. Open mic started a year ago and had one guest the first evening. This past Friday night, there were 25 people in attendance. Amazing!

The environment is safe, warm and inviting to all. My client, the poet, read aloud her collection of three poems. She attends the Open Mic monthly and has developed quite a reputation for her lively, sultry poetry. She has grown in confidence and presence; it was lovely to witness.

As she read one of her poems, I was listening to what the meaning was for her as to why she wrote it; it was a poem about her soulmate coming into her life. It was almost like a prayer.

It got me thinking. A prayer. Yup, her birthday was the next day and it was time to turn that poem written from her heart and soul into a prayer. The place in which my office, Que Linda Tu is located employs individuals five days a week who provide massage therapy, aromatherapy, reiki, readings, energy work and more.

Yesterday, I ask Ken who started a prayer circle in this sacred space if he would work with our poet. And I ask the poet if she would like to engage in creating a prayer for herself from that poem. She agreed and so did Ken.

They sat on the floor and started to dig a little deeper into the poem, into her heart and beyond her mind. We moved beyond what she had felt possible for herself and into what she believed had been impossible for years. The prayer was made and already the prayer circle widened. I know this prayer will come true.

This young man has already worked with two other people in creating their prayers. Both of these people came back right away, to let him know that within a month their prayers had come true. Magic? Or is it the power of belief and intention in a clear statement of desire? It seems having more minds holding your prayer for you also moves it along; whether you call it a prayer, the law of attraction or just believing….it really does work. I have read how people have been healed of all sorts of ailments and at the other end of the spectrum, I have read how dreams come true with all that focused intention.

Sometimes it takes a village. And as always, we are connected to one another and when one receives, we all receive. I too, decided to take my belief that I have been holding on my own and share it yesterday too. Something I used to believe was impossible, I now believe possible…it will come true.

I would love to hear about people manifesting their desires whether through prayer, writing it down, a vision board or whatever tool has helped you to create something you wanted in your life. Please email me at Tracy@13degreez.com or please leave a comment.

Victoria on Asking for and Receiving Wealth

ASKING & RECEIVING WEALTH by Victoria

My wanting to achieve wealth in all areas of my life, NOT just financial; came the realization that I had to open up to things beyond what I know and do.

What I know and do so far have me where I am right now.

An opportunity came around to help an old friend market a “word of mouth, grass roots hair product”.  The product is sold on-line, and has just started radio advertising to correlate with the availability of the product at the California Summer Fairs.

She asked for friends and family to help promote and sell the product at the LA FAIR.

My thought (old mentality): my  step-daughters can use the extra money and have a great opportunity to create networking connections.  I went with them to the interview to ensure everything was applicable to their ability & time schedule.

The UNIVERSE brought ME the OPPORTUNITY, as well.

At the interview for the girls, I was asked to help with the one-month sales blitz at the fair.  I was asked to be Supervisor and just like that,  the opportunity to make some extra money appeared!

OK Universe, I see you winking at me.

I started using the product a few weeks before starting to sell it at the fair.  It turned out to be what I had been searching for on my own in hair care. I had previously spent an in excess money & time trying to find the right product for my hair.

Here I was being provided the product so I could be part of the product family.  I have learned, as I established my business, this is A WAY OF LIFE.  This company lives it as a way of life—they live abundantly. And they have shared with others.

It is an enrichment of my daily life that has become a way to earn a living.  A mirror, to how I see, project and do my “business.”

Last night I worked the evening shift at the fair.  I felt good about the number of transactions and money that my step-daughter and I produced for the company.

Most importantly the stories and conversations, we shared and heard from those customers wanting to enrich themselves with this product, were incredible! Many were return customers, who were so happy to see us and the product! They spent time with us, sharing their testimonials.  What  fun!

I woke up exhausted from working two jobs this month. BUT I am living, FULL, ENRICHED & FEELING ACCOMPLISHED as I AM THE WAY OF LIFE I PROFESS & YES RICHER/WEALTHIER FOR IT.  

As I read through morning emails I received one from the Manager of the product  company. The email indicated what a GREAT JOB we were doing.  The company will be rewarding EACH shift group a “kitty/pool” for reaching company goals.  Each shift that reaches the company goals will get money in the “kitty/pool”. At the end of the month ALL monies added to the pool are divided by the people in that  shift.

WOW-extra money for doing what we are doing.

GREAT! The email also stated, because some of us are driving long distances our paycheck would have some EXTRA money added to it, to help ease the gas crunch.

It’s the little things that we do that pay dividends to our efforts.

So, today here is to the Little Efforts that have brought dividends for this work. This is a stepping stone to manifesting the larger dividends…which will be revealed in my own work with my own business.  I will continue to apply these smaller practices on a larger scope and see the results at the end of this year’s journey.

I thank you for Winking at me today, Universe.

Victoria’s 1st week of believing…


Victoria checked in with an update on how believing things will come to fruition for her was coming along. In her words:

“I really don’t know HOW to convey what I am doing in words. I have always just done this exercise in my life and pushed my way through. This is a different process.


 After declaring my manifestation list of wealth, I realized my own son had taken a good amount of money out of my personal checking account; without asking, without my knowledge, without my approval. 

For the last several years I have provided my sons with all the things I could, because I finally was able to afford things.

I wanted to be able to show them With Good Hard Work and Effort-you should be able to reap some rewards.  I wasn’t aware they had not fully grasped the lesson of Hard Work & Effort , first and  foremost.  Instead,  they saw and received rewards developing a sense of entitlement.  

Time passed so quickly and now they are young men.  

The economic environment of our nation has hit me hard, just as many others have been financially side-lined in our society.  I have had to cut back on the extras and even on some necessities. Now I am  looking at all aspects to grow my wealth, not just monetarily, but all aspects of my life, so that I may know True Wealth…Wealth of Life.  

In the case with my sons,  I had not taken the time to explain to them that they needed to be more responsible in their own decision making when it comes to finances.  

I did tell things have gotten tougher financially, and that we would not be able to have all the luxuries we once had.  Although, I forgot to get them involved in the cutbacks.  I forgot to teach them the responsibility and accountability to not only themselves, but to me and our household…to be mindful. 

Since this incident last week,  I have sat with my son and explained the function of a “job”.   The process of holding a job, in which a person works (hopefully work hard and with effort) and for that work the person is “paid/rewarded” with a  return-financially/success/status, etc… 

I have realized that manifesting my own intentions is not just my doing…if I am not clear on what I do, how I do and what I stand for, it allows for others to stop, deplete or infringe upon me in ways that impede my life.  And then no matter what my true intention is with the Universe, I would not have been successful. I have taken responsibility for my dance with the universe and will not become a victim.”     

I love what Victoria had to say about her experience this past week. Believing, wanting and working toward what we say we want in our lives will definitely bring to the surface any part of us that is not in alignment with these intentions. It is all a process and each moment we have an opportunity to make a choice in how we want to travel this journey.

Thank you for sharing Victoria. And thank you for your words this morning in helping me to get through my own thoughts which hold me back and make me question the ability I have to make my own dreams come true. Love to you and to all!!!
