Christine Dionese: December 2010 Innerpreneur Spotlight
I am:a professional smiley-pants: A really happy lover of people, crowds and connector of both! Professionally, I’m an Integrative Health Care Specialist, Medical Journalist & Food Blogger and Business Development Consultant (to health and wellness professionals of all backgrounds).
My passion is for:My passion is to strive toward developing the best ways to attain total wellness so that my teaching, writing and practice of medicine will be a true extension of myself out into the community. As a business development consultant, it’s my mission to help doctors and new health care professionals understand and utilize integrative medicine in their practices to offer the most comprehensive care to the widest variety of people. This means living by example; to maintain the ability to put my own ego aside and still push forward with confidence (into a place that’s still not sure if they want to accept me or my ideas). My simple goal is to remind physicians that no matter what type of medical training or background, we all have it in us to heal our patients; to practice medicine for people, not things.
A Holiday Act in Gratitude of Your Clients
Perhaps this idea inspires you?For the past two years I've given a monetary gift to charity in gratitude of the client relationships I've cultivated. I sent this festive note to my clients this holiday season:
Exploring with the Ghosts of Past, Present and Future
[tweetmeme] Our past, the present, and our unwritten future, and what we think of them, they tend to haunt us now and again. If your ghosts happen to visit this holiday season (or any time), why not invite them in and explore with them. They have much to teach us when we are open to acknowledging them and adapting to their presence.
Learning From the Past: The Ghost of Who You WereWhether you're a fan of change or not, you aren't the same person as you were. You've changed. You've grown. Your visions of the past can be one of your chief assets. They can tell you about Who You Are now, what you want, what you don't want, what you like and what you don't. Who You Were can show you that the good stuff and the bad stuff have helped to shaped you equally. How you remember Who You Were is yours to choose. It can be your chain, it can be your springboard, it can be whatever you desire.
