I never thought that the day would come that I would blog! no it's not Jodene this time - its me, Mr. unexpected or Pat Sloane Photo - or for short, just Pat! I am not a writer and nor do I aspire to be one but tonight I am going to try and say a few things about Jodene and I hope I can put it into words in such a way that I can express how amazing she really is!
Tonight we have just returned from a birthday dinner for a very dear friend of ours, Kim AKA Hustlergirl and my girlfriend, Jodene is exhausted!
I know you all know her as this amazing woman who writes her blog religiously every day but I want you to know what I see...
Jodene's dedication to her fundamental beliefs are unparalleled. she lives out her values every minute of every day without question and is always true to herself.
Jodene and I differ in many ways in our thinking but one thing I can tell you is that I admire her grit! I see how she battles to move forward in the business world but always remains focused and determined! for me I get frustrated for her because i can see her talent and worth! I don't for 1 second profess to understand the world of twitter and blogging but I do know that she is rated as the 235th most influential person on twitter in Africa, a truly amazing feat considering she is not a celeb. I see the celebs, CEO's and other influential people listen when she has something to say! I have had a small insight into the most amazing children's book that she has written 3 years ago and no publisher has taken serious enough to consider publishing! it, and Jodene keeps on moving forward day by day without showing the rejection and heartache of not having had her true talents and brilliance recognized!
In conclusion, Jodene is like one of the amazing talents waiting to be discovered by someone who can recognize her brilliance and worth and give her the opportunity to produce her own label and let her sing for all she is worth and enrich the lives of each and everyone of us her are privileged enough to listen!!!
For these reasons and many others, i am privileged to have her by my side as my girl friend and have her love me in the way that I love her!
Jodene, you are ahead of your time, an inspiration to many and I see you for your brilliance - I can see your success - never ever give up on your dream!!!
Awwwww!!! (pointing at the blog post and telling my husband "LOOK!!!")

Tee hee hee ... showed mine your comment and now he's a proud peacock ;p
Great post, Pat!
Courage, consciousness and a sense of humour are all encapsulated in Jodene - that's where the Lifeology by-line comes from.
If you're seeing it then it is starting to shine through. Yay! 🙂
She is an amazing force of nature isn't she? She probably hasn't told you but she has quite a few friends on this hemisphere, as well. She's got a Texas sized fan right here. And she's put in a good word for you and that's enough for me.

Um... waiting to be discovered... ? o.0
To quote a little green guy, "Found someone you have", or rather we have. Discovered... trully appreciated by all, well, that's another story 🙂
Hope to hear more from you in time.
