What is your expertise history?

I left New Zealand (my home country) in 1976, setting out for the USA where I would go through several months of orientation before moving on to the mission field in Latin America. I had absolutely no doubt that Latin America was to be my destination.

My mentor at the time, a lady in her late 60s, had a great influence on me in my 20s. She gave me a letter before I left. She wrote saying that even though I had closed the doors on the office (I worked in the office of the Education Board in NZ), I would take my pen with me. At the time I did not fully understand. I had hoped to leave office work behind forever since this was not at all my favorite occupation, so was not so sure about that comment. However I still have that letter stored away today.

Later in Mexico I started to write booklets for children (in Spanish) with cartooned illustrations, newsletters for parents and a magazine for children’s workers (Sunday teachers, Vacation Bible School Teachers etc) as well as many hand outs and overhead projector notes for seminars. Then I began to understand what she meant. I certainly had taken both my pen and pencil with me to the mission field.
(The story of the beginnings of the series of booklets for children is in the process of being told here)

The children’s booklets opened many doors for me to speak in conferences aimed at training children’s workers and also conferences for parents. Later I also did my own seminars together with my team, and sometimes joined forces with the minister’s alliance of Cuernavaca, Mexico where I was living.
I was invited to share in many areas around Cuernavaca, Mexico City, the states of Guerrero and Oaxaca and Michoacan.

Name a barrier you recently faced and how did you or are you overcoming it?

Actually there were 2 big barriers that have tried to change the course of my life.
The first was in the financial area. When I was first sent out from NZ, the New Zealand dollar was worth $US1.20, so it was easier for the church to support me. It was only a year or so later that our dollar fell to $0.40 against the $US plus the two pastors of the church that was supporting me died (within 1 year of each other). The financial struggles started after that.

I started to check out the internet for opportunities to support myself. Apart from writing, I have also been fascinated with technical things, and so learning to build websites using html, php and mysql attracted my interest. I found a lot of tutorials on the internet that helped me to learn the basics of these codes.

This led to doing some free lance work for the next year or so. I plan on continuing to do some free lancing but now working mostly with Word Press blog installations and related things. A website for this will be launched soon
The other barrier happened more recently. Now just over three years ago, I was driving back to the USA border when suddenly I found the car steering towards the side of the road. (Big mistake, I was driving while very tired).

I am totally convinced the car had a faulty steering as when I tried to correct the situation it went way out of control, swerved from side to side across the road and rolled twice. This left me with a light concussion. I found out the hard way that tourist full coverage insurance is not really full coverage, so I was left with no car and a big bill with the finance company even after a settlement was finally obtained from the insurance company.

,p>I am climbing my way over both of these “barriers” by working with InRoom Dining at the Hyatt Regency in San Antonio, and building my blogs as well as working on producing some of my own products to sell online. The “day job” is keeping bills paid while I build the online business. It is also giving me many new experiences which of course is helping my writing.

Both the physical exercise of the day activities and the mental and creative exercise of my night activities (writing) are continuing to help my mind and brain heal from the results of the accident.

What inspires you to do what you do now?

I think the biggest thing that inspires me is the knowledge that my mission is not complete yet. There is much still to be done, and I plan on doing it.

I also aim at leaving a heritage for young missionaries and nationals in Latin America (once my work is finally complete on this earth, perhaps in 30-40 years time). So a lot of what I am doing now is aimed at this major goal which has shorter term goals along the way.

Once I have fully learned to build a business online by simply sharing the things I am passionate about, I plan on teaching these young folk to do the same. This way they will be able to support themselves as well as building financial stability for their latter years without being distracted from their main visions.

How do you share your expertise today in terms of products, services, and gifts?


One of my blogs Mind Set For Living is inspired by my journey out of the effects of the concussion as well as by the biblical studies I had begun a few years prior, concerning the affects of our thoughts and imaginations on our lives.
My other main blog, Successful Relationships shares many of the principles I taught across the years in Mexico.

I also plan on starting a blog in Spanish which will cover both of the above topics. These keep me inspired as I work towards being able to physically return to Mexico, as well as travel in other parts of Latin America to continue sharing many of principles on mindset and relationships which God has revealed to me across the years.

Because I wrote so many papers, booklets and conference notes in Spanish, I did spend a lot of time learning the grammar and the written language. I enjoy continuing to study this along with editing in Spanish. I also have a lot of interest in copywriting in both languages (English and Spanish)

What are some of your goals for 2009?

This year I am aiming at producing at least 2 products which will be sold on the internet.
Produce some more cartoons and publish them on the internet. One of my life goals is to produce an actual cartoon strip. (Some of my cartoons are  Words Can Make or Break Your Childs’ Life and Interpretation Of The Parable Of The Sower

Two trips are planned, one to New Zealand and the other to Mexico to visit my friends (who are like family) – perhaps a third (finally) to Colombia where there is someone who has been waiting patiently for many years for me to come and visit.

To conclude, during one of my trips back to New Zealand I visited the Bible College I had attended. There I met up with one of my peers who told me that rumors were running around between the students that I was the only one who knew what they were going to do and went out and did it.

So here’s my challenge: Discover your life’s purpose and then go out and do it

Personal Fitness Trainer, Educator and Painter-Sandie Brown

Baby Boomer Bustin Loose, Sandi Brown was kind enough to allow me to interview her via email.

So read this interview with an energetic, empowering and encouraging baby boomer.


ROSIE As baby boomers each of us have a history of expertise and experience. I CALL THAT MOTIVATIONAL FOR ANY BOOMER LISTENING.

What is your expertise history?

SANDIE: Primarily, I am a language teacher- I have spent the last 15 or so years teaching Non-English Speaking Background (NESB) students from all around the World. So I am an English teacher. A lot of that is all about empowering people to take responsibility for their own learning, giving them the skills to improve their English ability and providing all the necessary support when the going gets tough.

These days I train others to teach – now that is truly rewarding!

The key words are: motivation, empowering, support. and encouragement. That’s something we can all do for people in our circle of influence.

On a more personal level, I have battled and won the fight with weight management, having gained a lot of weight when my first child was born. I got really good at dumping excess weight for the next 3 decades- you know yo-yo weight loss, weight gain. A couple of years ago, I decided this was enough! There has to be a long term solution to this, so I went to the New Zealand College of Fitness and trained to be a Personal Trainer (at the tender “young” age of 56!) I’ve never been a sportsperson and only started weight training- lifting weights 8 years ago, so this was a true indication that you can start ANYTHING at ANY age!

The combination of good nutrition to suit my body type, sensible cardio-vascular exercise and great weight training has given me the power to stay trim and healthy! Now I share that with others. These days, I do a bit of running as well as my regular cardio of bike (indoor trainer), step-up and skip. This is not ‘long slow gentle stuff- it is real ‘huffy-puffy’ stuff.

ROSIE: What inspires you to do what you do now?

SANDIE: Success! “If I can do it so can you”

I love to see people empowered! On the teacher training side of my life, it is so wonderful to teach young people how to teach and then see them putting these teaching techniques into practice. The best thing is that the people I teach are mostly from Non-English-Speaking backgrounds and it is a real joy to see them teaching English.

On the Personal Training side: it’s the same really- empowering people to be successful in their fitness and weight management goals.

ROSIE: Name a barrier you recently faced and how did you or are you overcoming it?

SANDIE: TIME and “JUST LIFE” – This is when life – my job etc squeezes my ‘personal’ time out- time for my own exercise and personal development.

How to Overcome? The key thing is time management and planning. If I plan for ‘my’ time- I am more likely to achieve what I want.

This is really true with nutrition! If I don’t have the right food in the house- well good nutrition just goes out the window! I used to plan a week’s meals in advance –write menus even. These days I am not so strict but I do plan more ‘loosely’ and make sure that the freezer has the right kind of meat and that the vegetable bin is full of fresh goodies. I just have to remember to take meat out of the freezer in the morning as I really prefer NOT to use a microwave to thaw anything. If I have a day or so of ‘not so good nutrition” ( come on – we ALL have those!), then I go back to writing a food diary – everything gets written  down and that turns me back on track very very quickly!

A good support network is essential- for me it is the regular appointment in the gym (with my husband) we work out twice a week for strength training, and we keep each other ‘honest’ with the cardio workouts. Best advice-: get a support network and be accountable to someone.

SANDIE: How do you share your expertise today in terms of products, services,  and gifts?

I have 7 Personal Training Clients who come to my gym once a week. Some come in pairs to share the cost. Of course I train family members too

ROSIE: What are some of your goals for 2009?

Many of my goals are lifestyle rather than ‘product’ type goals. By that I mean things I want to do. It’s like when you make a “weight-loss goal” You can say “I want to lose 5 kilograms” or you can say “I do “X” amount of exercise everyday and I eat only clean (low-saturated fat, Low GI)  natural food – not processed stuff” The by-product of that is going to be that ‘weight-loss’ or more likely fat burning, and you’ve focused on fitness and healthy eating rather than getting to a particular figure on the scale. You are more likely to be long-term successful with that kind of goal. So my goals?

1.    Build up to running  5K twice a week by  September 1st (our Spring-time) Currently I run 2.5K

2.    Increase the reps and weight of my Bench-press –at the moment the goal is 10 reps of 40KG –nearly there! (5 reps at the moment)

Do 50 full press ups (in groups of 5) give me 3 months to achieve that.

3.    Paint at least ONE day/evening a week. I wanted to do daily painting but that was unrealistic with work life at present.

ROSIE: I understand you paint. Tell me about that.

SANDIE: Oh yes- I have always as long as I remember loved art. I remember when I was 12 I had a book on portrait drawing. I used to spend hours trying to ‘get it right’! I started painting landscapes  with acrylics and oils in my mid teens, but was never encouraged to take it seriously. I think my parents thought that there was no money in art! Anyway- over the years I painted on and off – more off than on actually until about 5 years ago.

I started portrait painting in earnest with a great teacher ( from the U.K)  in adult classes as the Continuing Education Centre of Canterbury University. At the same time, I did a lot of Life Drawing classes with another great teacher (from N.Z ). I also did a number of classes with an American Artist-teacher who has made NZ her home.

These days I work in pastel and oil- more recently mostly oil.  Painting is a passion and such a great learning experience. I am not sure where it will end up, but I do know I will always do it- whether or not I sell any!  I sold a pastel still life last year which gave me huge encouragement? but that is not the reason I paint- I paint because I enjoy it and it is a way of expressing the God-given creativity we all have.

ROSIE: Thank You Sandie!
