Episode Summary

Celebrating the Original Influencer in our midst… our mothers.

On this Mother’s Day, can we just agree… before there was Social Media, indoor plumbing and the like, mothers worldwide have been, are and continue to be the Original Influencer - generation after generation.

If you’re like me, you've argued with them, agreed, cried with and because of them, laughed with and yes, sometimes at them, smiled on the inside and outside because of them. You and I have been influenced for the good, bad and or ugly, directly correlated to them.

With all this in mind, I find that if given the opportunity, I will gladly celebrate them. How about you? Is there something worth celebrating with your Original Influencer? Then Celebrate it. Let her know.

At the end of this Podcast, I have included an original "Ode of Thanksgiving" I composed to our Original Influencers. Feel free to share it with any woman who fits the bill.

Happy Mother’s Day to all our Original Influencers.


[00:00:00] You are an Original Influencer or you have been around an Original Influencer if… 

[00:01:45] Intro music and voice over narration for the show

[00:02:18] Introduction to the show as we celebrate the Original Influencer, our mothers with a minimal of seven points of thanksgiving for their influence on our lives.

[00:03:10] Number one. How they influence from the beginning of the beginning, which is before the beginning… 

[00:03:54] Two. Influencers fight on our behalf. Mommas around the world fight on our behalf when all of the voices have been rendered silent. You are forever that superinfluencer, a "Momma bear" protecting her cubs, championing us all the way!

[00:05:32] Three. Influences as the frame with which we view the world. Remember learning how to dress, or not to dress, how to act...  swagger. Before there was social media, there was mama. 

[00:07:14] Four. Influencing with wisdom, or sometimes we'd like to believe maybe not. "I have become just like mom... when and how did this happen?”

[00:08:32] Number five. Influencing when you didn't even have a prototype. Not everyone has had a mother as an influence in their life. Yet you have risen and become a positive influencer to so many seen and unseen people around you

[00:09:24] Number six. Influences who don't seek notoriety... imagine that. You don't seek notoriety as the number one influencer, yet you just are. You influence by your presence whether here or departed, you’ve stamped the air with your sustaining influence.

[00:10:59] Number seven. Influences influence just by us knowing they care. How you continuously put your life before ours, we will never truly see the bigness of that sacrificial picture.

[00:11:55]Original ODE of thanks to all the Original Influencers in our midst, our mothers.
