Failure to Thrive Syndrome: visions and dreams

One of the big mistakes I made with my visions and dreams is thinking that I had to be a particular kind of person, or be in the “right place at the right time” or have the right background in order for my vision to manifest.

When I took a good look at some of the past success stories, this was far from the truth. I did not need the right background, I needed to take the time out to nurture and cultivate my vision, I had to nurture the burning desire for success and be willing to use my natural mother instincts which govern success and growth.

Many clients of mine have experienced Failure to Thrive Syndrome.  What’s that you ask?  Well, here is what happens to infants who suffer from Failure to Thrive Syndrome and tell me if this is something you are going through or have overcome in the past.

Infants require basic nurturing needs to be met, nothing strenuous but necessary. Such as love, touching, feeding, holding, keeping warm and dry, some attention, etc.  In fact, so powerful is the need to be nurtured that without it, the baby can develop Failure to Thrive Syndrome, which often leads to infant death.  The infant’s body is telling it that something is wrong, the infant begins to internalize this reaction to non reaction and it results into something fatal or deadly.  Please keep in mind; I am not a physician or pediatrician.

As it pertains to your vision and your dreams, this is equally serious.  If you do not love, touch, feed, hold, and nurture your vision and your dreams their reaction to growth is zero to none.  Why do I use such a serious analogy to get my point across?  I use this analogy to let you know that your dream and vision is your contribution to the world.  Your vision may save thousands of lives; your dream pursued and acted on, may keep the next individual from giving up.

When a baby enters in the world, that is an individual who has a destiny, a mandate and a mission already assigned to him/her.  When a dream is birthed or a vision activated, that is a solution to a major problem, no matter how big or small, it is a valuable and worthy solution.

If you feel as if you are losing the life of your vision and dream, just take some time to give it some TLC (tender, love and care) before putting it out to the world. Nurture your vision and dreams, cultivate it, feed it the amount of quality time it needs.  Before you know it, your vision and dream will nurture, cultivate and feed you. $$$

I’m More Than Just An Option

Who is Lucinda Cross and Why You Should Care?

“Building Wealth One Vision At A Time”

We all have a vision, an idea and a dream of what we want to do, become and have in this life.  In the process we get side tracked, confused, and fearful. That awesome vision, idea and dream we had, now seems like an unattainable, unreachable goal.

I help entrepreneurs create a highly profitable multiple-income-stream business so they can enjoy the lifestyle they deserve.

I do this by showing them how to leverage their creativity, time and their network using online multi-media platforms, packaging their expertise, and creating a dream team…EXACTLY the way I have done it for hundreds of clients and associates.  Not only am I the president, but I am also a client of my own process!

In 2001, I started my first business called Shine Entertainment where I hosted college parties and comedy shows with many of the well known celebrity comedians out now. In 2004, I entered into a partnership with two other women  and we started, Business in Progress LLC, which was a one stop business shop for start up businesses. There I had the opportunity to work behind the visions of NFL players like Dwight Freeny, Boxer Zab Juda, and NBA players on the NJ Nets, Celebrity music artist such as Jada Kiss, Fabolous and more.

In 2006, I discovered the world of Virtual Assistance. In my attempt to become a work-at-home- mom, I quit my job and launched a Virtual Assistant Outsourcing Company called Ultimate VA Support. There I had the pleasure of building virtual dream teams for business owners to “work on their business and not in their business”.  I worked with clients such as, Millionaire Mom Milana Leshinsky, Millionaire Dad Andrew Morrison, Celebrity Financial Coach Sanyika Calloway, Author and Celebrity Sales Coach Sydney Barrows, and many of the successful coaches birthed out of Dan Kennedy’s network.

My recently published book, “Corporate Mom Drop Outs: Women who have traded in the life sentence for a profitable lifestyle”, has been coined the ultimate support guide to turning your business concept into a sustainable and attainable business model. Things moved very quickly…In 2009, I was featured in several mainstream media outlets as the Mompreneur expert and resource for moms to learn and acquire the tools needed to build a successful global business. In 2010 I launched the Business Baby Shower contest with JV partner Traci Bisson of The Mom Entrepreneur, then I pioneered the Super Mom Entrepreneur Conference and Expo in NY alongside partner Heather Lopez of Become Better Brands, a live event for momprenerus world wide.

Today I am exploring the idea of “Lifestyle Business Entrepreneurship” – building  businesses that supports entrepreneurs in working less, making more, doing what they love, while creating a vision that fosters wealth, health and happiness.

In 2011 I have co-authored a Amazon bestseller and featured in another.










I have the honor of being a keynote on several platforms inspiring women to build lifestyle businesses, take action and awaken their inner potential. I hope my work inspires many entrepreneurs and professionals enjoy passionate, purposeful and creative self expression in their business…on THEIR terms!

Things you may not have known about me:

I can spend less than 30 minutes with a “creative visionary” and visualize their entire business complete with packaging products, service offerings and marketing strategies. I basically give you your “vision in a box” with an “upside down plan of action”. All you will need is to do the action work.

– My top values are financial freedom, higher learning, family, creativity, wealth, personal time, and happiness.

– If I were a toy, I would be a “Hoola Hoop”. I am creative, innovative, fun, unpredictable, well rounded, protects what’s on the inside, great to partner up with, hard to break, easy to love, with unlimited possibilities, and challenging!

My typical work week looks like:

– Take as many sick days as I want

– Able to shop during the day with retired senior citizens

– Working 4-5 hours a day

– 2 hour lunches

– No use for an alarm clock

– Loving Mondays and Taking off on Wednesdays

– Attending 80% of my kids’ events

– No deadlines to sweat about

– Naps when I choose

– Calendar full of purpose, passion and paid opportunities

Yes I call this the start of a lifestyle business, freedom, fun and financial rewards.

Now its your turn to tell me about you. If you want to work with me start by commenting below and I will reach out to you within 48 hours or email my assistant at

Adapt to Suit Your Business Environment

Be Focused, Stay Flexible

As an entrepreneur, it’s important that you’re able to adapt to your environment and do what’s necessary to make your business succeed. This and staying focused may sound like contradictory concepts, but they’re actually very complimentary.

Most experienced business people agree that business seldom goes as you expect. If you have one plan to generate traffic, one plan about what to sell, one plan about how your business should look and you’re not willing to change strategies, chances are you won’t make it in the long run.
