So far I’ve revealed that natnanton.com will be coming to a close to make way for my new blog. I have also let you in on the name of the new blog, (The Uncommoners Club) what it’s about (lifestyle design), and who it’s for (independent thinkers, like you).
Now I’m pumped to show you the logo! But before I reveal it to you, allow me to share my definition of the term that inspired the logo:
uncommoners noun [uhn-kom-uh-nerz]: those who think for themselves, lead with their heart, and are brave enough to do what the ordinary fear.
(Fun fact: that definition was modelled after the three characters in The Wizard of Oz.)
I wanted the logo to embody that definition. Happy to report, I managed to come up with the just the right thing! And Plate Design Studio’s branding consultant, Adriana, brought it to life.
I’m excited to introduce you to the llamacorn: part llama, part unicorn. 100% maverick.
Remember when Ice Cube went from gangsta to dadsta?
Talk about re-branding.
Well, I’m going from momsta to mobsta…except, not in the criminal gang kinda way. The only thing I’m trying to kill is status quo.
As you know, mommy blogs are for moms written by moms. In this case, natnanton.com is an “empowering blog for inspired moms”. What you probably don’t know, is that natnanton.com has a sizeable audience of non-moms…some of them are even males.
I’ve been turning blue in the face keeping this secret from you. I found out about three months ago. I was shocked… It was completely unexpected.
I had reconnected with an old friend of mine in January. The chemistry was hot as soon as we found out that both of us were about finding our potential and living our dreams.
So, we started hanging out and next thing you know…I’m launching a new blog…my new baby…completely unexpected!
In support of G Day, an event that celebrates and empowers girls ages 10-12, Sandra Garcia, President and Director of Good Media at Concious Public Relations Inc., shares how her relationship with fear affected her as a young adult.

It was 1993 and I was in the sixth grade, probably 11 at the time. I was not an athlete, like my sister. I was the nerd. I was reading and writing at an above-average level, and teachers groomed me into excelling in Academics.
What’s worse than playing sick nurse? My toddler came down with a nasty flu for a week. And then I caught a horrible cold in the midst of that. Thankfully, I was only down and out for a couple of days. I knew of some who were affected for two weeks!
Want in on my secret weapon? I have three. All drool-worthy.
It’s been eight days.
How’re you feeling about your 2014 goals? Killin’ it so far? If you’ve been on your A game, then keep rockin’!
But let’s keep it real, if you’re human, you’re probably gonna lose steam at some point. Apparently, only 8% of people keep New Year’s resolutions. So, if you feel your enthusiasm dipping and your goals slipping away, you’re not alone.
We’ve all heard about the power of words; but how conscious are you about your choice of words, the way you use them and the effect they have on your world.

Earlier this week, it was my brother’s and my mother’s birthday — the perfect excuse for an art collabo with Tiana. I couldn’t wait to see what kind of magic we would come up with.
Team T&N did alright!
IT’S NATIONAL KALE DAY…in the U.S. But I’m declaring it WORLD Kale Day so that everybody can get in on this kale fiesta! To celebrate, Tiana and I made a video for you where we share our favourite green smoothie recipe.
Kale has superpowers because…

Be a follower. Its the smartypants way to prepare yourself for your leadership role.
If someone is where you strive to be, it makes sense to watch her closely and find out what worked for her. Being a skilled follower saves time and prevents costly rookie mistakes.
How To Be A Skilled Follower
First off, leaders aren’t just the ones sitting at the top. If they’re ahead of you, they’re leading the way. It pays to follow the lead of those at different phases on the same journey. Each one will provide you with valuable insight.
