My name, Sandra, holds a profound meaning; it symbolizes a beacon of strength and kindness, embodying the characteristics of a helper, defender of mankind, and a brave soul.

My traits of being Fun, Energetic, and Creative have fueled my journey, but the role I cherish most is being a "helper." This role brings me immense joy and satisfaction as I strive to positively impact the lives of others, uplifting them in their journey. This, I believe, is my true superpower.

For over two decades, my life's mantra has been, "You never know how or when you might touch another life." And indeed, my life's journey has been a testament to this belief.

 

My life's path closely resembles the yellow brick road from the Wizard of Oz. In the movie, the characters all seek external magic to give them qualities they already possess but fail to acknowledge.

Since 1991, I've been intricately connected to the digital realm... I can still recall the old dial-up tone of AOL! I was the trendsetting mom with a Facebook profile. Today, I remain fascinated with the ever-evolving landscape of social media, particularly video, podcasting and Tik Tok!

Each time a new platform launched, I was there, ready to explore. In retrospect, my ADHD played a significant role in this impulsiveness. I had a severe case of FOMO (fear of missing out) and felt compelled to know and do it all!

In 2015, I hit the GO LIVE button, and it turbocharged my life and business, propelling me in a direction I had never anticipated.

As a woman in her 50s, I was an unexpected face on Snapchat. Initially, I had no audience, and it was a bit terrifying. My millennial daughters advised me to stick to Facebook, but I carried on.

As I shared my stories, people began to watch, share, and before I knew it, I had built an organic global audience who I affectionately call my "Livelies." My live streaming journey has been brimming with connections, collaborations, clients, customers, and lifetime friendships!

 

For years, I made the mistake of assuming that everyone knew what I knew. I was wrong. I had unique talents and skills that I could have been sharing all along, particularly in the realm of Live video and Podcasting.

The lesson I've learned is that when we bring our words to life, we forge instant connections, and that's where the magic unfolds!

As Glinda from Oz wisely said: "You've always had the power, my dear, you just had to learn it for yourself."

When asked, "what brings you a genuine sense of purpose and fulfillment?" My answer is always: Serving others.

Every place I've been and everything I've learned shapes who I am today. I'm here to connect, share, and inspire. I aim to serve others using my natural gifts and talents, which I fondly call my Superpowers!

Today, I proudly wear the title of an "Author." I've created my first book and Audible titled "A Dose of Positive Energy," and I am hopeful that this is just the beginning of many more to come!

These days, my pace of life has significantly relaxed, and I often find myself declaring, "I'm retired!" For the past half-decade, I've had the privilege of being an integral part of Tracy Otsuka's community known as "ADHD for Smart Ass Women." I serve as her part-time tech guru, assisting with live video production and social media tasks. Helping Tracy and forging connections with other women who share similar experiences brings me immense joy!
