Speaking Calculator – Words to Minutes Calculator







Would you like to be able to calculate how long your speaking gig will take?  Many times you are given certain about of time to speak and they let you know that you really can’t go past the allotted amount of time they’ve given you.

Speaking Calculator

I have actually been at workshops where there are several workshops going on at the same time and everyone is supposed to end at the same time, then the participants are able to go to several workshops at the conference.  If a speaker runs on for too long it can really throw a kink into things for all of the other speakers as well as for the attendees.

Well, I have something here for you that is really neat, you know how I love to pass along really great techniques, biz tips, gadgets and techy wisdom to you don’t you!?  I have something here you are really going to love to help you with a pretty good guesstimation of how long your speech will be.

Check out this website that helps you convert the number of words you have written for your speech into the time it takes to deliver your speech.  It’s quick and easy, it’s online and it’s absolutely FREE!  We love free don’t we!?

This techy tool is awesome when you are preparing for a speech or a presentation. The number of minutes you will take is dependent on the number of words and your speed of speech, or reading speed.

Now, be sure to note that this calculator is really close but can’t claim 100% accuracy because some people are slow speakers and some are fast, BUT it even does it’s best to help you choose which speed!

Closeup frangipani flowerSo what’s in your heart? What’s Your BIG DREAM?

What do you REALLY think you are here for?

Do you feel the sacred yearnings of your life dreams crawling up and out of the deep hole you’ve been hiding in now for far too long?

Are you ready to attach your blessed butterfly wings and fly out? Tired of cocooning?  Feeling ready to fly?  I totally understand the cocooning and the flying. It’s just a part of the journey.

The secret is to keep dreaming and dreaming even bigger – and then sometimes to dream small – it all depends on where you are on the journey.

Some of us are wounded, some of us are cautious, some of us are fearful.

Some of us are fearless and jumping off cliffs allowing our faith to carry us to parts wild and unknown!

Some of us are comparing ourselves to others and feeling unworthy. Some of us are tired of the comparisons. Some of us are thinking things that stop us from BEING and LIVING OUR God-given Dreams.  Some of seem to always guide others into their dreams but can’t seem to do so for ourselves.  What the &^%@#*!  is up with that?!

We have to be willing to allow ourselves to become Spiritwalkers… we need to be willing to allow for our Spirit to guide us and THEN be willing to actually follow that guidance unswervingly and bravely!  We don’t do our dreams alone this way! Learn to listen to the sacred whispers of your soul… Awaken! Rise Up! Become! 

I am afraid of lots of things when it comes to my dreams. We ALL are! It’s ok to say it and name it and confess it!  Oh man it totally SUCKS too I know!  We all hate it, we all know it.

We are creative and long to live our creative lives with our creative minds.  For some reason there is just some anguish that comes along with it, BUT we don’t want to go down that dark path…

Yellow Brick RoadWe need to follow after the light – the yellow brick road, so to speak.  So, you must keep your Big Dreams alive! But HOW? 

As we consider looking across time, looking at how we can manage the risks of creativity.  I believe that your dreams are from God… They are Divine. You all have this Creative Genius living within you! He protects you from the demise of going down that dark road.  So… how you can begin to follow after your Big God-given Dream is to be a Spiritwalker!

You are a Creative Being. You are a vessel – allow yourself to go with the Spirit within you… this way you don’t have to rely fully on YOU. There is a creative mystical and majestic mind power within you. We have to be “tapped into this mystical and majestic Spirit” within.  You can begin to hear and feel your dreams coming THROUGH YOU when you allow this to occur!  Did you catch the word “allow”?  Everything that comes through us is NOT necessarily US, it’s the Spirit within us! I know many of you are totally going to “get this” as you are reading it – and others will think this girl is wacked! LOL!  Others reading this will want this! Those of you who are “wanting” this will have it, just for the asking! 

Your process of Creating and Owning your Big Dreams is this wondrous and crazy and brilliant journey!  When you start thinking things like “This is crazy!” “What am I doing?” “Why am I bothering?” Start changing this by SPEAKING to your dream OUT LOUD! There is POWER in your Spoken Word… Renew your MIND with the power of your Spoken Word. Do not allow the thoughts in your head to keep you from it.  I know you know what I am talking about.

You are able to step through this “portal” and become ignited by God! You will light up and become your dream!  This is yours to have, divinely appointed to you!

Let me share this one last thought for you before I go…

The word DESIRE is broken down like this: DE=Of | Sire=The Father

… So this beautiful, holy, sacred, brilliant, crazy, amazing DESIRE is OF THE FATHER!  So, it’s yours to do! Yours to create! Yours to have with help with from The Spirit! You don’t do it alone… 

If you are to dance, write, coach, speak, teach… DO IT!

Keep holding fast to your Desires, Your amazing dreams!

Dancing, Dreaming & Desiring,
Kathryn Rich Bonner

What is your particular RHYTHM?


Each of us is unique in our own rhythms and how we seem to work best without interruptions and where it is that we find that we are “in the flow” of creating all that we need to. I have found myself to get into a wonderful rhythm when it comes to flow!

2119-seasonalAre you an EARLY BIRD waking up easily and ready to begin the work with a clear head and a sharp wit? Then that is the best time for you to allow yourself the space to get into the rhythm of your work. You are most likely wide eyed and chomping at the bit to get to it and start getting everything written up on your to do list and look forward to getting all of those items checked off! The things that I like to do in the mornings is 1st create my TO DO LIST for the day, respond to emails, schedule appointments with clients, take POWER SESH Calls with potential clients, have all of my coaching calls with clients and help them create strategies, programs, brainstorming sessions, lead my MasterMind Groups, etc… These are the things that I thrive on during the day.

If you are anything like me, after accomplishing all of this, you experience a great sense of accomplishment having all the things on your list completed.

Later afternoon you may even begin to lose focus, and can feel a bit sleepy and even consider taking a power nap!

Allow yourself to take that power nap! It’s proven to be really good for you to do so! I’ve written about the blessings of POWER NAPS in another blog post!

1506-vintageOR Are You a NIGHT OWL? I have found that in my biz it’s such a sacred time in the late hours of the night when I am working on blog posts, writing for the newsletter, writing in regard to speaking topics and those types of things that require me to have absolute silence and be away from the distractions of all the things that can bombard me during the day.

This may sound a bit odd, but I find my rhythms in BOTH the EARLY BIRD and the NIGHT OWL worlds, depending upon what I am doing.

Determine your rhythms, allow for the sacred flow to occur. Also, just be sure to maintain a balance so that you do not find yourself working non-stop and losing balance with your family and your social life.

I take my breaks in the latter part of the afternoon allowing for lunch with my husband and with my girlfriends. Learn what your rhythms are and benefit from on the time that works best for you as you run your awesome biz!

Cheers to Your Biz,
Kathryn Rich Bonner

This is a GREAT LESSON for us!

A powerful lesson regarding the way in which we do life and how we choose to run our entrepreneurial biz! What are the wonderful insights you glean from these women just from watching this video?

It’s a reminder to me on so many levels to create my life and my biz with intention, fun, light heartedness and to always be ME!

I am actually finding myself in a place of transition and transformation – in which I am allowing myself to be much freer than I have ever been before.

Allowing myself to be the me that God created me to be, rather than being the person that someone else expects me to be. God knew what He was doing when He gave me and you our personalities, thoughts, reasoning abilities, creative desires, who we are attracted to, the tribes we circle in… and on and on it goes.

No more trying to beat out of rhythm for me! I am lining up with these fabulous women, not to be like them, but to be like me!

Ahhh… so freeing!

What about you?

What are your thoughts?

Rise Up in Your Spirit



Accept that you are unique & amazing & brilliant
& powerful & sacred & exhilarating!

Those of us on this crazy, hectic, tripped out Entrepreneurial Journey realize this is 2-25definitely a highway less traveled that makes perfect sense to us. BUT those in our family and many of our friends, to them it may make no sense at all.

Many of them may not want you to follow this path and because of their misunderstandings of it. They may even try to hold you back, or say this is too hard for you, and cause you to question this path yourself!

They may see you scaling upward and stepping outside your comfort zone and seeing you uncomfortable makes them uncomfortable so they try to “fix you” by trying to make you comfortable again!

Not everyone is keen on the idea of stepping outside their comfort zone and becoming uncomfortable. Some don’t like the idea of taking any kind of risks or facing fears.

3-25And when they see you doing this they can confront you and tell you to stop or that you are a bit crazy… this can wear one down. They may not like it because they themselves are not living into their own dreams and you could be a huge reminder to them of all that they themselves should be doing.

It’s hard with those that are really close to you don’t “get it” and it can even feel like they are putting you down, questioning you, judging you. They don’t know how to THINK BIG.

THEN they want the “old you” back, in your old familiar place of not taking leaps of faith, and not thinking big, to being comfy with them again.

This is exactly the reason that having a coach (like me :)) or a mentor, or an accountability partner to hold you in that sacred space of being brave, taking leaps across big skies and jumping over buildings! To help you reach your dreams, and conquer your big biz and be so supportive for you, especially those like me who’ve been there and can help you make those amazing spectacular GINORMOUS SHIFTS!

Affirmations for Renewing My Mind


In the coaching of my client’s one of the things I have found to be one of the greatest hurdles in the mind, especially for those who are Spiritually minded entrepreneurs, is the fact that somehow they don’t feel deserving of one thing or another.

We all know about the negative mindsets that can clang around within our minds, like gongs going off all the time. These noisy gongs are beating and drumming you down, perhaps to the point that you begin to believe that rather than the truth of what God really longs for you and your success and abundance.

Nothing could be further from the truth and you deserve all of the blessings, beauty, sacred moments, joy that this amazing universe holds for you. Allow God to pour out His blessings upon you and stand in belief and praise for all He gives… in healthiness, relationships, your biz, money, personal achievements, bliss, love, and in every facet of your life!

Take a meditative moment with me here to renew your mind…

Breathe in deeply the Power of the Spirit…Breathe in all that He has for you knowing that He makes us deserving of all you have and all you are to receive. 

Speak Out Loud Your Affirmation to Renew Your Mind: “I Am Deserving!” 

For help in Renewing your mind with guided Biblical Meditations that come with Journaling Pages go to:

Now, journal out what the above means to you…

Then journal around the two Scripture verses below asking God to share with you all that this means for you:
“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.”  Romans 12:2 MSG 

“If we live by the [Holy] Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. [If by the Holy Spirit[a]we have our life in God, let us go forward[b]walking in line, our conduct controlled by the Spirit.]”  Galatians 5:25 AMP 

No more sleepwalking through your phenomenal life!  Spiritwalking with you on the journey…   

Awakening Your MIND, BIZ, & SPIRIT,

pic905So, let’s take a moment right here right now, what have your thoughts been today? Good, bad, ugly, beautiful, holy, sacred, silly?

Now is THE PERFECT MOMENT for you to become aware of your thoughts and what your thoughts have been focusing in on.

Let’s take a moment, a judge free moment, not worrying whether you are right or wrong in your thinking, just time to observe yourself, your mind, your thoughts…

There is no right or wrong here – just an observation.

Notice what you are noticing…

What are you feeling in your body?  Tense or Relaxed?  Your body will also confirm what you are thinking just by how you are feeling…

From what place are your thoughts coming?  Anxiety, feelings of lack, limitation, fear?

Or are you living in a place of possibility, belief, expansion, ability and abundance in this infinite world?

Close your eyes… take this sacred moment to notice where your thoughts and where they are coming from.  Now acknowledge what you notice, jot it down.

In order to live the life you are called to live, create the biz your truly desire, have the beautiful relationships and achieve all of your passions, you will be better off to create your intentional mindsets!

I highly recommend morning meditation to daily renew your mind and at the end of your meditation journal the wisdom given you from the Holy Spirit.  You will experience an awesome Awakening in doing so!

Here’s to Awakening Your Beautiful & Brilliant Mind,

Kathryn Rich Bonner
