Conference Decoration Blessing Of The Year

Still not convinced greater is coming… Less than 15 days away after talking to dozens of decorators, trying to get a red bottom look on a payless budget…

God sends a well known decorator Shaun Carson who decorates the Waldorf Astoria and known for providing the hottest floral decor for celebrity weddings. He gives me a quote below my budget, if I mention the investment you might faint. Lol.

His team decorated the whole conference from top to bottom, indoors and out. His first words to me was “I am here to be an answer to your prayer, what do you need me to do? I am here to serve.”

My point: God laughs at your budget. Just stay true to the vision and God will blow your mind.

The Art of Activation

heart-2-ConvertedAttending the Activate Conference is about creating a platform for your message, movement and ideas. Many people are running around buying stuff they don’t need, to impress people they don’t like, in order to live a life they don’t enjoy. Why?  because they have not grasped the Art of Activation.

3 Steps to Activate Your Life Today:

1. Give Your Voice Value: When you begin to realize how important and valuable your message is, you will understand that you have been undercharging life. This can be a huge disservice for your personal and professional growth. My mentor told me to put a sticker on my computer that reads: “I deserve to be compensated because I bring value to the table”

2. Get your Blessings   Confidence: Go get your confidence and then go grab your blessings. One of the reasons why I have Les Brown leading a two hour session first thing in the morning at the Activate Conference is because many people bypass their customized blessings due to lack of confidence.  When you are confident in your ability and understand that you bring value to the table, you begin to take inspired action towards getting all the flavor out of the sweet blessings God has placed at your feet.

3. Cross colors: Embrace diversity, I like to call it adding color to your profile. I have a mix of business associates from all colors, races and nationalities. This helps my brand awareness and outreach. I have a message that is for any nationality and gender. I chose to direct my focus towards women with a message. Embrace change and get in the mix.

Pick up your yellow brick and meet me at the round table at the Activate Conference.

You have the authority to be amazing

Reason #7 to attend the Activate Conference:

64315_10201647963063214_1610064995_nYou have given yourself the authority to be amazing.


Excuse me, miss. Yes, YOU reading this blog. Take a look in the mirror.  Stare at yourself really intently. Do you know that you have the authority to be amazing? You don’t need fancy licenses, certificates, degrees or awards. All you need is you.

We allow so many things to define who we are—our materialistic possessions, the people in our lives, the amount of money we earn, and the accomplishments we’ve made. Those things become synonymous with our power. So what happens if those things are stripped from us? Well, we feel as if we have no significance, or better yet, as if we have no authority over our lives. But I’m here to tell you that your existence—your ability to breathe and have a name– is what gives you power. You give yourself the authority to be amazing.

The Activate Conference with Lucinda Cross, reinforces your authority. The speakers, presenters and guests will be a mirror which reflects how amazing you are. Some of you will be reminded that no matter how big your struggle is or the amount of trouble you’ve endured, you still have the authority to reclaim your greatness. Some of you will be given the courage to tell others how amazing you are and make them respect what you are building for yourself. Regardless of who you are, the Activate Conference is meant to help you embrace your authority and show you how to wear it proudly.

If you haven’t yet figured out how to take control over the things that make you so powerful, the Activate Conference is a wonderful place to start. Think about it, you’ll be a in a place filled with people who expect nothing less than for you to show up and be authoritative. These women want you to be courageous, captivating and sensational. So if you haven’t done so already, give yourself the authority to be amazing! You are worth it.

The New Mandate For Female Entrepreneurs

Reason #9 to attend the Activate Conference:

It’ time to replace fear with ferocity.


Look out behind you! There’s something lurking and if it catches you, it’ll be a disaster! It’s a four letter word…F-E-A-R. Run, girl, RUUUUUUUUNNN!

Fear is like a big, ugly monster waiting to claim you as its victim. It hides and sneaks up on you just when you think you’ve conquered what you’re afraid of. It can stop you in your tracks and make you second-guess and doubt everything you want to do. But you must remember, you can fight back! You have to attack your fear with ferocity.

Admit it. You’ve stopped your progress on several occasions by letting fear take over your actions. You’ve told yourself  “I’m not ready for that yet“ or “I don’t think I can do that”. And whether you believe it or not, those statements are full of fear. The Activate Conference with Lucinda Cross will compel you to face, address and conquer your fears.

When you’re afraid, you need to be comforted and you need to feel empowered. The women at the Activate Conference have faced their fears and are able to show and tell you how to face yours. What’s even more dynamic is that some of the attendees are still running from their fears. BUT they’ve made a decision that they and fear will both arrive at the Activate Conference, but only one of them will walk out alive. Can you guess which one it will be?

Your ferocity is trapped underneath challenges, resentment and self-sabotage. The Activate Conference will help you remove those layers and unleash ferocity which is so bold and so powerful, it’ll make fear run away from you! If you know it’s time to replace your fear with ferocity, then you need to attend the Activate Conference.

Snap Out Of It! It’s Time To Rise!

Reason #10 to attend the Activate Conference:

Good is no longer enough. It’s time to do better.


You’ve tried and pushed and made some progress. That’s good. But there’s so much more for you to accomplish. You’ve got big dreams that need to be conquered and it’s not going to happen overnight. You’ve set goals that need to be reached and they’re nothing to “shake a stick” at. This means that good is no longer enough. It’s time to do better.

The Activate Conference is your tool to doing better. You’ll be surrounded by people who have embraced their progress and are very proud of all of the blood, sweat and tears they’ve put into books, messages, relationships, businesses and personal achievements. These people started out with a vision that has evolved into a passion and ultimately, the passion has turned into a purpose. But what’s even more powerful about the Activate Conference attendees, speakers, ambassadors and volunteers is that they’ve made a vow to turn it up a notch. They are taking serious strides to go from good to better. You deserve to be one of these people!

The truth is, it’s easy to settle with thoughts of being in a “good place”. Nothing is broken. So why should you bother fixing it? The answer is simple. If you honestly felt that your “good place” was enough, you wouldn’t spend as much time as you do fantasizing, journaling, sharing, building, observing, wishing or hoping. You’d be just fine where you are. The mere fact that you’re looking forward to something—anything— means you are ready and willing to go from good to better.

So you’ve got the readiness and willingness. Now all you need is to be able to go from good to better. The Activate Conference provides you with the ability. You will connect, grow and build. You will hone in on strengths you have pushed aside or refused to accept. You will shake hands, exchange business cards and conversations. You will learn and become activated. You will walk away knowing you have all of the power to go from good to better.
