Kimberlie Dykeman ART: the perfect, original holiday gift

The world doesn’t make sense, so why should I paint pictures that do.”   ~ Pablo Picassopage-0

ART REFLECTS LIFE- BUY SOME!!! I know so many folks who, like me, attend art shows and market events and rarely pick up a piece for their own homes or as gifts. Over the years I have added to my own collection with prints, etchings, ceramics, glasswork-you name it. I have also GIVEN art (and not just my works!)- and the reaction from friends and family is priceless every time. ART REFLECTS LIFE- and touches people’s hearts like nothing else.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Gift cards are crap. Anyone can give an Amazon card or sweater or restaurant certificate. BE MEMORABLE! Invest in some art! I’ll help you! Here’s a coupon to my current listed completed works… I’ll even apply it to a commissioned piece you may elect to have me create.

Have you RIPPLED today??

OMG!  Steve Harper….I am kicking myself today.  I met this fine, motivational man months ago…and I confess I finally got to breaking the spine of his acclaimed book, “The Ripple Effect“, just today.  I knew it was in the house somewhere …but it literally jumped off my one of my many bookshelves last night, so I tucked it into my messenger bag for the morning.  When I woke, I gotta tell ya, I was soooo looking forward to my workout of what turned into 2 and a half hours of cardio-salsa!  I could not stop reading, for the combo of java and jolts of practical inspiration kept the pages a-turnin!  In a nutshell, this books reminds you of HOW to be a little more human in this jaded, all-about-me-and-protecting-mine state of society in which many of us exist.  And then it shows you WHY is truly benefits you …as in “what you give is what you invariably get.”  And it all begins with one of the first things we were all taught in life: talking to people.  Period. 

 

As Harper states, on his site: “The Ripple Effect” paints a tantalizing picture of what business (and life) can be like if only we have the courage to put people first.  Meaning, as Rollo May has eloquently put it, it indeed takes the courage to create everything in life which we may want, including relationships!  And part and parcel to this notion, it requires us to put people first.  Other people.  New people.  Complete strangers.  Old pals.  Family members.  Whoever…but just put the effort out there to place those folks in your proverbial path and find out what they need from you. 

 

When you make an effort, make a connection, figure out how to be “of service” to people…the ripple thus begins.  And it’s magical, folks.  That’s my little teaser for you.  You know how fascinating the image of a ripple effect in a body of water is, right?  Imagine how gloriously powerful that same outcome could be in your life when you choose to ripple some goodness into others’ lives without second thought.  Makes you wonder, hmmm?  I hope it makes you take action as well!  SO, go get your ripple on, folks!  Make a choice to make a change today.               -KD

Dykeman Showcased in Women of Personality e-Book by Rohit Bhargava

 

Last year Rohit Bhargava, blogger & SVP at Ogilvy 360 Digital Influence, launched his latest book “Personality Not Included”  to great accolades.  In response to a flurry of emails from women business owners who talked about how they were already intuitively using personality in their businesses, he has chosen to also launch a companion e-book.  The compilation book, entitled “Women of Personality”, is part of The Personality Project, and features 20 visionary female entrepreneurs sharing their stories of success.    Collectively they answered one simple questions:  How has personality helped you achieve success with your career or your business?

 

According to Bhargava, an elite marketer and renowned blogger, all showcased contributors qualify as some of the most visionary, approachable and interesting women in business today; and each of the participants was chosen because she has not only built a successful career for herself but has also made significant contributions to helping other women become successful as well.

 

I met Rohit for a spit-second at SXSW last year and we have since connected on the net to keep up and learn from one another.  Apparently he’d begun  following my career path via updates, reviews and tweets…for I have been honored as one of the chosen  entrepreneurs!    Read about this fascinating project and download your own FREE copy of the e-book, “Women of Personality”.
