Touting Maria Khalifé, Change Coaching Institute
July 31st, 2012

We’ve all seen it – war happens.  It’s never pretty. It’s always costly. And things go on the way they go on until someone changes things.  Maria Khalifé is a changer.  In fact, she’s a Change Coach.  In fact, she teaches others how to be Change Coaches at her Change Coaching Institute.  You can see her work here.

Maria was born during one of many such wars in Lebanon, and she used this strife to – shall we say – make lemonade for her life and for her country.  Maria says “I have always been inspired by Mahatma Gandhi principles and his vision of peace and nonviolence. I understood the need for sound principles which he explained to ordinary people.  I had to personally demonstrate those principles in my life so that I could say with great modesty “I walk my talk” “and my life is my message” the way he did.”

Gandhi touched my soul when he said “Be the change that you want to see in the world.” I cannot think of any quotation that is more poignant than that one, so much so, that I have modeled my Change Coaching Institute after it.”

If you’d like more information about becoming a Change Coach, look here.

I have worked with Maria for over four years and I personally feel that I am helping her to bring peace one-individual-at-a-time in the middle east.  It’s a method not tried before.  Maria expects great success.

There is an abundance of inspirational articles that will bring both information and peace to your soul at Maria’s other website, www.MariaKhalife.com, so please feel free to visit and enjoy.

Maria’s work in the middle East is visionary and stellar.  I salute her!

Warmest Regards,

Pat Matson

Work Motivation and Gratitude
June 17th, 2010

My little grandson, Hiero, loves balls.  Naturally, everyone brings him balls as gifts.  It’s wonderful to watch him adulate “balls.”  It got me to thinking.  Here I am, a virtual assistant, the owner of Paperwork Partners, and what is my work motivation?  What are my “balls?”

I love my clients.  We spin ideas back and forth between us.  It’s my work motivation and it’s also my gratitude for them in my life.  I love to dream up new, fresh ways to make their businesses grow.  I love our interactions. I love the work I get to do for them. I love learning about their businesses and freeing them up to do what they do best.  Here is a list of what some of my client’s work is: coaching (lots of these), attorney, technical engineering writer, televised cooking show producer, NLP Practitioner, senior health care caregiver and headhunter.

You might ask: “Why such a wide variety of clients?”  Because I do administrative work that is quite similar for all of them, and because my work motivation thrives with variety.

Sunday nights you might overhear me say “I don’t want to go to work tomorrow.”  That just means I want more weekend, because once I slide into my harness and begin to pull, it is so much fun, that Pat Matson is enthralled, motivated, and extremely grateful for my Virtual Assistant business.

When you read this, if you thought “Boy, I’ll bet Pat would be a great help to my friend fill in the blank. If that’s true, have your friend send me an email here.
