Duchess of Earle Shares a Thought from Jeffery Combs September 28th, 2010

The Duchess of Earle just opened an emailed invitation from Jeffery Combs.  The invite is for his regular Tuesday evening call and tonight’s interesting – and vitally important – topic is “The Science of Attraction.”

Jeffery’s invitation says, “This call will assist you to develop a better understanding of the attraction process, how it works, why it works, and how you can use the laws of attraction to improve both your personal and professional life. As a matter of fact, the more you understand the natural laws of attraction, the more you will realize the laws are always in effect.  Prosperity, leadership, success, and happiness are all situations you have the ability to create through attraction. ”

Then what really caught her eye was the quote he shared from his book, More Heart Than Talent

Life is about service and value and giving back, not just taking.  Everything operates off a yin and a yang, a give and take, and you’ll get exactly what you expect. When you expect to struggle, the Universe will reward you with exactly what you expect. When you expect to flow, to reside, to be hands-free, to evolve and start to become the person you’ve always deserved to be, the Universe will also reward you with its own sense of abundance.”

The Duchess most cordially invites you to check out all the amazing products that Jeffery has to offer – there’s absolutely something for everyone, no matter what stage you’re at in your career.  The Duchess recommends in particular “The Power of Asking” – happily, he’s running a special on that.  Just what everyone is looking for in these times – a great deal with great value!


Poetic Encouragement for the Entrepreneur August 6th, 2010

Well, today the Duchess of Earle came across a poem, a kind of “Thought for the Day” kind of thing.  In a roundabout way she happened upon it in a sermon printed online.  It seemed to her to be exactly the kind of reminder she required at the moment – this in regard to what she’s been doing these last number of months as she strives to build her business.  She offers it to you, her readers, in the hope that it will encourage you, embolden you to “keep on keeping on” when the going gets tough, knowing all the while that what you’re working on may be something like the asparagus plant, in that one doesn’t see the results of their labors right away. 

So here it is, friends – a poem by the poetess Ann North (about whom the Duchess can find no further information or she would have given her readers a link to Ms North’s site).  Be that as it may – enjoy, friends – and dare to hope and do!

P.S.  That’s Paul Cezanne‘s painting, “The Gardener” right above the poem. :)





Some of the seeds of hope

Planted tentatively in the fall

Have not come up

They lie stillborn and unrealized

Somewhere in the spring soil


The strongest and best ones

Pushed up through leaves

And layers of cold, hard resistance

Right into clear blue air

And stand there nakedly green


It’s always that way with growing things

Never knowing at the start

Which will make it and which will fail

But the thing to hold fast to

Never to lose faith in

Is simply



Duchess of Earle offers a Thought for the Day August 10th, 2009

The Duchess of Earle just crossed paths with a saying that impresses her today – one of those unattributed things that pops up in one’s life and arrests one’s attention.  This idea is spurring the Duchess on this morning – and that’s a good thing.  Actually, that’s a GREAT thing! :)  Matter of fact, it’s so great that she thought she’d immediately post it here for sharing, in hopes that it will spur her readers on to plan their work and work their plan:

She who aims at nothing will hit it every time.

Duchess of Earle offers a Little Ageless-attitude Fun as she Blogs Again July 16th, 2009

The Duchess of Earle breaks her blogging hiatus with a cheery little video that crossed her path today.   Much has changed in the time since she last blogged and she is just starting to get back in the saddle.  This video bespeaks the ageless attitude of joy and what it does for one’s perspective as life rolls along.  These folks are having FUN, as they should be, even at an advanced age.  So the Duchess hopes you’ll enjoy as much as she did this long-time wed couple and their talent.


Duchess of Earle Shares a “Just Do It” Thought for the Day March 20th, 2009

Well, it’s midnight and the  Duchess of Earle is almost ready to climb the wooden hill to catch a little shut-eye, but she cannot resist logging into her blog to share this video with her readers.  It is one that was shared with her today by a friend and business associate.  She finds it a valuable and encouraging reminder of what every one of us is all about.  So, even when the going gets tough, hang in there, friends!  The Duchess believes that, because our tapped and untapped abilities and possibilities are so great, there really isn’t a one of us that couldn’t do more than we’re doing.  So, as another business associate likes to say, “Go forth and conquer!”  Even in these most trying times, what ever it is you need to do, you CAN do it! :)     


Duchess of Earle’s Thought for the Day January 4th, 2009

The Duchess of Earle has decided to watch for inspirational, motivational quotes to share with her readers.  She’s a bit behind in sharing this one, since New Year’s Day was this past Thursday, but she still thinks it’s worth sharing and hopes you’ll find it encouraging.  

“We will open the book.  Its pages are blank.  We are going to put words on them ourselves.  The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day. ” ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce

Let us all open that new book and get busy writing the pages for 2009 – and may they be well-written with words and experiences of prosperity and progressive thoughts and deeds by the end of the year!
