“There's never anything, that's not my job.” ~ Jill Tietjen

Do your best and meet your Commitments
It will build your courage, confidence, character, and self-reliance.

Take Responsibility for Being Responsible
Make sure whatever you’re doing, is for the right reasons: Gain the right tools and skills to succeed.


“When I make a commitment to someone, I follow through on that commitment.”
~ Jill Tietjen

Be willing to do whatever you think is reasonable to see things happen.
•Advocate for something you believe in
•Be prepared
•Listen and participate

Trust your choice (about what you love) and if you’re told you can’t – prove them wrong!
•Get involved
•Seek opportunities
•Demonstrate the skills (you will get noticed)

Learn to Say “No” and “Yes”
•Not all opportunities are equal
•Know what you’re good at and what you stand for
•You can't give your best to all the activities you're involved in if you’re spread too thin

“I'm always in problem-solving mode for almost everything.” ~ Jill Tietjen

The Energy of Possibility

Everyone has a passion. When you’re engaged in the areas you’re passionate about it's like floating on air - a standstill - because that's where you're supposed to be and what you're supposed to be doing. When you get to a place like that, it's just a wonderful place to be. Find those passions!

Until soon! Be curious, be inspired, simplify the way…
