Who’s a Natural Awakenings Reader?
Meet Jill Lawrence
Life’s mission: To explore metaphysical and spiritual topics and arenas; experience firsthand as much as is feasible and share my “Aha!” moments via the written and/or spoken word to as many people as want to read or hear what I have discovered.
Work: In 1973, I created Ruby Slippers Inc., my public relations and communications company. I also design and craft Swarovski jewelry and wholesale it under the brand Jillerly Jewelry.
Proudest Achievements: My three grown children, Lara, Kara and Mark, are my very proudest moments. In the realm of career, I was the most successful service-based franchise owner among a field of 2,580 franchises in the U.S. and Canada and received the number one franchise and franchisee award multiple times.
Expectations for the Future: I expect that more and more people will become acutely aware of the pernicious toxicity of GMO-laced foods and will effectively demand a cessation of the production of these poisonous, so-called foods. Monsanto will be forced to change its evil ways.
Favorite APP: MapQuest, Amazon and Ebay.
Local causes supported: Avow Hospice, domestic violence awareness
Favorite thing about Natural Awakenings: I love that NA has succeeded in being a free publication in the arena of body/mind/spirit when no one else in the country has. Being in public relations, I keep track of publications across the country. Natural Awakenings has no equal—not even a distant cousin. I love the forum Natural Awakenings provides for alternative ways of thinking, being and living.
Most frequented healthy food restaurant: Food & Thought Café and The Local.
How you invest in your community: Contributing my writing and broadcasting services, as well as PR savvy, to organizations and causes that benefit.
Favorite quote: “If you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right!” ~Henry Ford
What you are doing to be the change you want to see in the world: As much as possible, I relentlessly search for what’s highest and best, and remind myself how innately wonderful and divinely good human beings are. I love the quote from Anais Nin: “We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are.” She also wisely said, “When you make a world tolerable for yourself, you make a world tolerable for othersEdit ModuleShow Tags
