Graduation is Near

by Ursula Tara Davis on 10/28/15

I have been so busy this past year and a half working on my MBA. I have been clued to my school books

with so many hard classes that I did not have any time to blog. I just wanted to take the time to give a hello to all those who have purchased my book and those who have sent me emails.

I will be back on the blogging frontier the beginning of 2016 with a face lift on my website and some exciting information.

Thank you for communicating and enjoy the rest of your year!

2015 A Time of Change

by Ursula Tara Davis on 01/21/15

What is change? 

Change is when your circumstance, situation, or surroundings become different. 

Change is inevitable. Change will happen whether you are ready or not. 

Change is noticeable. Not just a change in personal appearance, but a change in personal development. Maybe even a change in direction.

Change is when you are no longer responding in the same manner as usual. There is an action that causes a reaction. There is an opportunity that causes a respond.

As we begin to step further into this New Year, take notice. Get ready for a season of change, because change have already begun.


"Being Thankful!"

by Ursula Tara Davis on 12/03/13

There are many many reason's to be thankful...

If you are still living and breathing, that alone really is enough, but, for those who may be having difficulty finding something to be thankful for, let me help you.

Each day is a gift.  Tomorrow is not promised, and yesterday has already passed.

People are a gift.  Relationships are a constant work in progress.  No relationship can develop and grow without two main ingredients; love and respect.  Love covers all fault, unselfishly gives, and remains faithful.  Respect helps your love to grow, and your heart to understand in the most difficult situations and circumstances.

Having a healthy mind, body, and spirit is a gift.  When your body is healthy you feel, look and act better.  When your mind is clear from stress, frustration, and anxiety, you make better decisions, you speak with wisdom, and you respond with answers and solutions to solve not only your concerns but others.  When your spirit is free, you are free to move about and soar.

"Live your life and recognize that life is really a gift; so be thankful because tomorrow is not promised!"

"It's A New Season"

by Ursula Tara Davis on 11/07/13

It's a new season.  As we are fastly approaching the close of this year, as you look back and reminisce thinking about all of your triumphs, challenges, failures, and successes, we should be thankful for seasons.  Thank goodness that season's change.

I realize that the best season of the year is approaching and I find it interesting that the best is always presented last.  It's like having a second chance to make a first impression.  You can spend time with family members who you have not seen, or meet new people to spend time with.  It's a very happy ebullient time of the year.

This has been a wonderful year for me thus far.  I have attended a wedding and baby shower of one of my daughters; and I will be having a grand-son really soon.  I am very excited!  Very busy year for my family and I.

As I begin to prepare for the close of this year, I realize there is always room to grow, expand, learn, and have increase in your life no matter what season you are in.  I have been able to adjust, thrive, and move with the currents of life.

As I continue to strive for perfection and set and meet goals and aspirations, I admonish you to do the same.  Change is good.  Seasons is good.  Expansion is good.  Growing is good. Learning is good.  Take it all in while you push to the limit.

At the end of that season, when you have reached your destination or goal, only then will you realize it was all worth it!

Women..."Take Care of You!"

by Ursula Tara Davis on 05/20/13

     It is so important for women to really take care of their entire being.  In order to function properly you must maintain the spirit, soul, body, emotions, mind, and character.  It is imperative to make sure these essentials are being cared for because of all the things that you deal with each day. 

      So many things are competing for your attention.  As women, we have a tendency to over-extend ourselves without replenishing what has been utilized to help others, sometimes forgetting to help ourselves.  Whether you are married with a family, or working with a family, or just working, you must maintain the proper balance in your life.  The longevity of all of the responsibilities can sometimes take a toll on the human body and mind causing you to feel overwhelmed.  Re-grouping is always recommended for replenishing.

     Having healthy emotions will help control reactions to what others say or do to you.  Being in complete control of yourself, your thoughts, and your emotions is a true sign of a person who knows how to replenish.  The only person that you can control is yourself.  You have complete control over your thoughts, actions, and reactions.

      Most people really do not have this revelation.  They spend their lives trying to control others when they can’t control themselves.  Never give anyone that kind of power over you.  It will drain you of your very existence.  This is why it is so important to pay attention to whom you allow to come in and influence your life.

      If a person is not in your Amen corner, shut them down.  Do not allow them to enter into your courts.  Keep them on the outer-court with all of their opinions and negativity.  Let them watch you grow and prosper by looking afar off.  You will feel better, and you will strive. 

    Replenish and re-group.  You will feel better and have more energy to handle the cares of each day. 



Your Financial Future

by Ursula Tara Davis on 03/20/13

Preparing for your financial future for some may seem like a daunting task.  In the midst of one of the worst financial obstacles in the 21st century, the future may appear bleak for many, but, there is hope.  There are always alternative solutions.

"Have you ever heard this saying?" "If you fail to plan... plan to fail!"

I realize that sometimes fear can cause you to do nothing.  "Fear of what?"  The unknown.  Can't adjust to trust.  "Trust in what?"  Your ability to come through.  Knowing what choices to make for your financial future without a road map or glimpse of what the future really holds can make anyone full of ambiguity.

Planning is necessary.  Your potential financial success ladies is in your hands.  Your potential financial security is in your hands.  Prioritizing goals is a good place to start.  Plan for major purchases, emergencies, retirement, college education, and your future.  Protect what you earn, what you own, what you owe, and those you love.

Whether it's progressive planning, aggressive planning, offensive planning, or defensive planning.  Your potential financial security depends on it.  Do it today!

There is light at the end of the tunnel.  Re-group!  Your financial future could depend on it.  It is in your hands!

Balancing Family and Career: By Francswai Davis

by Ursula Tara Davis on 02/01/13

      Every woman will eventually need to make the decision in her life of when she would like to tip the scale of balance between family and career. Some women have decided to give 70% to career and 30% to family, or 80% to family and 20% to career, or 50% to either, etc. My point is that as a woman, we are typically in the position of both primary child care and partner to our spouse. It is near impossible to devote 100% of your energy to both your family and career at the same time. The balance of energy will tip to favor one side over the other.

     I believe that when I am ready to have a family, it will not diminish completely my professional aspirations. It may cause me to have new and more important aspirations. It may cause me to place my family or career above achieving the next opportunity in that moment. When I make the decision, it should not be regretful, because it should be what I decided was more important at that stage in my life. If unexpected circumstances suggest otherwise, then own up to your choices, dispel any feelings of bitterness, and create new opportunities.

     Since people will likely last longer than company titles, and my last business trip was not nearly as fun as my last family vacation, I suspect that should I be forced to decide my predominate balance of energy, I know which way I will tip the scale.  

International Women's Day

by Ursula Tara Davis on 01/11/13

International Women's Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions. It is an occasion for looking back on past struggles and accomplishments, and more importantly, for looking ahead to the untapped potential and opportunities that await future generations of women all over the world.

International Women's Day first emerged from the activities of labor movements at the turn of the twentieth century in North America and across Europe.

1909: The first National Woman's Day was observed in the United States on 28 February. The Socialist Party of America designated this day in honour of the 1908 garment workers' strike in New York, where women protested against working conditions.

1910: The Socialist International, meeting in Copenhagen, established a Women's Day, international in character, to honor the movement for women's rights and to build support for achieving universal suffrage for women. The proposal was greeted with unanimous approval by the conference of over 100 women from 17 countries, which included the first three women elected to the  Parliament. No fixed date was selected for the observance.

1911: As a result of the Copenhagen initiative, International Women's Day was marked for the first time (19 March) in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland, where more than one million women and men attended rallies. In addition to the right to vote and to hold public office, they demanded women's rights to work, to vocational training and to an end to discrimination on the job.

Since those early years, International Women's Day has assumed a new global dimension for women in developed and developing countries alike. The growing international women's movement, which has been strengthened by four global United Nations women's conferences, has helped make the commemoration a rallying point to build support for women's rights and participation in the political and economic arenas. Increasingly, International Women's Day is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.

This is a time to celebrate and honor the many accomplishments of women everywhere.

2013...A year for perfection...

If you are like me you look forward to a new year.  You can look back at the previous year and reflect back on your victories, failures, and over-all life choices.

Some things you wish you had not done, some things you wish you had not said, and some opportunities you realized you missed.  Whatever the case may be 2013 is another chance to get it right.

I know some people never vow or make resolutions because they try so hard to be different, unique, and unpredictable.  Sometimes it's good to let a person know what to expect from you or what you are trying to accomplish.  Who knows, maybe they can assist you with your endeavor.

I have some very exciting events that will take place this year so stay tuned.

Enjoy Your Day!

“Women Can Have Whatever They Want!”

by Ursula Tara Davis on 12/04/12

      “What do women want?”  This is a question that has been asked by many, but, addressed by few.  “What do women really want?”  Some may even be afraid to answer.

Let me answer this question for you.  Women want to be loved, appreciated, accepted, adored, cared for, acknowledged, rewarded, healthy, wealthy, remembered, respected, and paid attention to. 

Women need to feel a sense of freedom that allows them to be whom they are as unique individuals.  Their thoughts, ideals, suggestions, and input should be considered and heard when shared.

“What do women want?”  Economic freedom to live comfortably in a lifestyle that’s suitable for each woman’s individual desire; suitability and comfort all wrap up in a nice stable environment with peace, and harmony, where their finances and self-worth are synchronized together without experiencing a deficit in their natural resources.

“What do women want?” To be remembered on their birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s Day, Sweethearts Day, Mother’s Day, Secretary’s Day, Christmas, and every day.

“What do women want?” An apology when you have wronged her, a raise when she has earned it and a promotion when she qualified for it.

“What do women want?” To be respected when you entreat her, and not mishandled when you see her.

“What do women want?”  A child that will respect her, a husband that won’t reject her, and a Mother-in-law that won’t neglect her.

“What do women want?”  To live in a world that acknowledges her presence, awards her contributions, and celebrates her existence.

Now that we understand each other, let’s help her get what she wants.

When I think of the Woman, I think of beauty, a pleasing quality of form and delight, with such color and aroma, what an opulent sight.

The Woman, an intelligent being, capable of acquiring and retaining knowledge to guide her, when influencing, motivating, and empowering those around her.

The Woman, seeing she is the only creation of her kind.  More curves and movements than her compatible mate, her voice yet softer and sweeter than her compatible date.

The Woman, she represents the sweet effervescent of all those who have heart, with her kind gentle spirit and looking the part.

The Woman, she will attract and capture you with her romantic delight, because she's sweet and irresistible, be careful, her allure may not be right.

The Woman, one of the most influential creations on earth.  The world is complete because she can give birth.

The Woman, not to be compared to her male counterpart, just helping and keeping dreams from falling apart.

The Woman, what a wonderful creation of vivaciousness, beauty, and delight. "Oh here she comes, she's beautiful, she's powerful, what a magnificent sight!"

The Woman, men would not be complete without her.  Children would not be sweet without her.

The Woman, not to compete with the man, just to be held, comforted, and letting him know that he can.

The Woman, to soothe in time of pain, to ease in time of fame.

The Woman, no other creation like her.  When others will not give in, her willingness to amend.

The Woman, her ability to endure the shame, when husband is being defamed.

The Woman, not to go ahead of the man, just helping him to stand.

The Woman, what a wonderful creation of vivaciousness, beauty, and delight.  "Oh here she comes, she beautiful, she's powerful, what a magnificent sight!"

The Woman, what a wonderful, closest friend.
