Awhile back, I tried to make “Win Wednesday” a thing. It didn’t go that well, but I still stand by my desire to make it happen. But even more, now, I want to make “We Can ALL Win Wednesday” a thing. Want in?
Don’t want to agree without knowing what it is?
Here we go.
I’ve actually wanted to make a video about this for a long time. Either I did, forgot, and couldn’t find it, or it’s still on my “videos to make when I don’t have an idea for a video” list. 😂 Since one isn’t available for me to share where I’M doing the talking, check out this one with Chelsea Handler.
People say I remind them of her, anyway.
So, what did you think?
There are a lot of great lessons in that video, but the one that stands out to me is that there is enough success for all of us – and what makes each of us successful is that we are unique. It’s all in due time!
For one person to win, someone else does not have to lose!
One person I learned this from was my friend Neda, who is an amazing model, makeup artist, humanitarian and artist (outside of the realm of makeup).
Going along with my previous post, I want to pay this lovely lady a compliment! When I first decided to start a career as a makeup artist, I was told to introduce myself to Neda. I knew she was an amazing artist, but when I saw her, I thought there was no way she could be that talented and gorgeous and not be a b-word! Boy was I wrong! I met her about six months later when I took her airbrush class, and really wished I had introduced myself to her earlier. Not only is she gorgeous and talented, but one of the nicest, most helpful people I have met – AND she’s intelligent and fun to be around! I am so blessed to call her a friend!
After I took her intro to airbrushing class, she started referring clients to me when she was already booked, or if someone wanted a second makeup artist on set, or a blonde model, etc.
She didn’t ask for commission on jobs she gave me, and knew that when she did give me the jobs that she ran the risk of losing (or not getting) a repeat client. But she never worried about that – she knows there’s enough success for everyone. We can ALL win!

In the class she taught, she told us exactly what she did to get her clients as a makeup artist. And all of us artists were located within miles of where she lived, therefore in the same client pool.
Some might consider us competition, and keep secrets from us, but not Neda. Neda knows we can all win. She knows there’s enough success for everyone. She believes in karma, too – that what goes around, comes around and comes back multiplied. And that is why Neda is one of the most successful people I know!
Next time you’re deciding whether to share or withhold a trade secret or helpful knowledge, or you see someone as your competition. Remember – we’re all on the same team! A rising tide floats all boats!
Who or what is an example of “We can ALL win” in your life? How do you keep this idea at the front of your mind?
