IT’S ALL ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS!!!

Welcome to my Blog! After 3 weeks of finagling with Go Daddy and WordPress, consulting with Jerry Chen and Javier Rivero-Diaz, tweeting with Yaro Starak, and tons tons of hours of trial and error, I AM PROUD TO FINALLY LAUNCH MY BLOG!!! And the best part? I created this blog and didn’t have to pay to outsource it!

Why did I choose to be known as “The Relational Marketer“? As far as I can remember, ever since I was about 8 years old, I have always been genuinely interested in people. I have always done my best to connect with them and didn’t really understand why. People have branded me as a people pleaser, “brown noser” and a naive person who seems to find the best in people everywhere. I was even told during a job interview for Philippine Airlines that “they can’t hire me because I smile too much”. Can you imagine an airline who can’t hire someone because she smiled too much?

Another thing that didn’t use to make sense for me before was that I seem to always get elevated to a leadership role or have leaders -everywhere I go – to take notice of me without me really putting much effort into it. Looking back, I realized one thing: the connections I have made in my life are all part of a Divine Appointment and I have been given this gift of connecting with people and a heart that finds the good in everyone so that I can fulfill what I believe to be my life’s purpose which is this:

To live a life of purpose and help others find theirs…
For my life to always reflect God’s joy and love
To help revive hope to the hopeless
To become unbelievably blessed so I can become a blessing
!

One of my most favorite quotes is by one of our most beloved President, Ronald Reagan – this is his epitaph on his tombstone at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, CA.

I know in my heart that man is good, that what is right will always eventually triumph and that there is purpose and worth to each and every life.”

It is my greatest desire to be able to give value to those who take the time to get to know me and trust me. I know I will not be able to connect with everyone on a physical level but through this Blog and my other social media sites – I hope to interact with you, get to know you and be able to build meaningful relationships just the same.

I also realize that some people may not feel comfortable that I do consider God and my Savior Jesus Christ as my Senior Partner in my business. If you only knew how my life was before God knocked on the door of my heart, you will understand why I am passionate about sharing the joy and peace that can only come from Him!

I believe that everyone has a story and mine is a story of courage, determination, implementation backed by faith, hope and love. It is through relationships that I am able to fulfill my God-given purpose. It is through relatioships that we get to know people beyond the superficial level and it is in relationships that trust, success and collaborations stem forth.

Truly, I am proud to be The Relational Marketer, desiring success for others more than I want for myself and when everything is all said and you’re on your death bed, you are not going to be thinking about how much money you didn’t acquire – you will want to be surrounded by those whose lives are now better because of yours! Yes, IT’S ALL ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS!

  11. Hello Ms. Jacki!
    There you are!!! How are you? Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and leave a comment…. I love “Keep stretching the mind and I’ll keep stretching the body” – you’re simply amazing! I need to visit you soon! Marlene and I are on the same Bible Study again…I miss you a ton!

  12. Annie dearest Annie!

    How are you? I missed you today at church…Renee wasn’t there either… Glad you liked my blog and my song…the question I always ask myself is “did I choose to love?” It’s not easy to ALWAYS love but it’s one of the greatest commandments! Ditto to you – you are a joy yourself! I am the one blessed to call you a friend…

    Love you too!
    Emma 😉

  13. Hello Rico!
    How are you? THANK YOU for visiting my blog and even finding the time to leave a comment… Awww, thanks for the nice compliment about “me” at present. I do believe that my heart is the same, even if I’ve gained quite a few pounds from 22 years ago! Ha, ha! It’s just great to re-connect w/ old friends… we all have legacies… the question I always ask, aside from “did I choose to love” is “do I leave people better than I found them?” I believe you are a master at that! Hugs to your family especially my Godson and his new baby boy…

    Hugs and Love,
    Emma 😉

  14. My dearest Ms. Ever Speaktacular Kathleen!
    WOW, what an honor that you visited my blog and even left me a most beautiful comment! You just warm my heart and my soul! Your loving words couldn’t have come at a better time… sometimes when we give of ourselves, we feel a bit drained and we need a fresh “infilling” and I prayed this afternoon for such infilling and your words flowed like an answered prayer! You are whom I consider THE QUEEN of relational marketing and I am humbled beyond words…

    Blessings back at you! Can’t wait to see you in a few weeks!

    Hugs and Love,

    Emma 😉

    Relationships are the foundations upon which our lives are built, great thoughts here Emma. Keep your focus on loving and connecting with people and everything else will fall into place. So glad that I can say we’re friends 🙂
    Archie

  16. Archie, dearest Archie!
    You are WISE beyond your age! I still remember you were the first one to post on my first Blog “Easier Done Than Said”…God is just amazing – He knows the people He needs to bring into our lives and His timing is always perfect! I am the one who’s beyond happy to say “we’re friends”! Great big hugs and many blessings!!! Emma 😉

  17. Hi Emma,

    You have created a wonderful website. It is so inspiring and personal.
    We are so fortunate to have your family at HCS.
    I have been blessed by knowing you.
    Much Success to You!
    Marcia Garman

  18. Hello Ms. Marcia!

    I am touched that you found the time to visit my Blog and even leave a comment! You’re the amazing one! I am in awe of how you and our beloved HCS staff, manage to run an incredible school! We’re very blessed to be in that school and it is so wonderful to know that God has brought us an extended family at HCS! Meeting you when I was checking out HCS was part of the reasons that “sealed the deal” – your love and kindness is a representation of what HCS is about! God bless you for all that you are and all that you do, Ms. Marcia!

    Gratefully Yours,

    Emma 😉
