Giving Back

I make a point to only form companies with a goal of strong global impact. If I am not on purpose to change the world, there truly is no point for me. So, Scarlett Ramey Official is giving back to the world. It takes too much work to build a business not to have a global impact. Scarlett Ramey Official is dedicated to the empowerment of the global community of entrepreneurs, as we know the spirit of business is omnipresent.

Traveling to different countries, I have found the spirit of business in the markets, shops, tour companies, and cafes filled with beautiful foods. The methods that are used vary from the sale to tourist to their local community. This became fascinating to me throughout the years, as I was fortunate to gain different experiences and expertise we simply do not have the same environment, but the principles and most importantly the SPIRIT of business continue to be universal. Scarlett Ramey Official demands global impact buy giving back on a consistent basis. The following are three ways we make our small impact on the world by giving back.

1. Economic Support to Third World Countries

5% of ALL Scarlett Ramey Official profits go to entrepreneurs in third world countries. Each year we decide on ten different individuals from 3 different countries who need capital to formulate a business they’ve planned.

2. International Travel with Purpose

We travel to 3 different countries to give free business workshops. It’s important that we spread our knowledge to those who cannot afford business education. We host 3-Day workshops for those who can gather for this time with family members, and a translator to aid in any language barriers.

3. Third World Business Retreats

We support global tourism by hosting business retreats in third world countries and incorporate spiritual principles of the country. We choose business retreats based on economic need. If tourism is low, and needs help, we tend to choose these places. In order to truly immerse in the culture of each country, we visit spiritual and religious places to gain insights we just cannot glean at home. Spiritual business up-levels our experience from the discussion of future profit production, to how we can further impact the world using our unique gifts.

We love including and exposing those who are interested in world travel, regardless of their spiritual beliefs, to the rich history of global travel.

If you would like more information on how you can give back with us, while gaining access to one of our global business retreats, please email or Text your information to (206) 910-8690.


A Successful Business Needs 2 Things…

In order to start any successful business, there are two things you need to know NOW in order to start with confidence, and understand the direction you are headed, in order to put your best foot forward. These are definitely not necessary, but if you want to save time and money (time doing useless things), you’ll definitely want to read on. These two pieces are possibly the most important for success as you start any business.

1. Why:

The reasons, the “why’s” for starting your business will always be more important that anything you sell. Your Why is the piece that will get you through the roughest times because it truly is the core of your business. Without this, there come ebbs and flows that become difficult to surmount. The why is the light at the end of the tunnel. The reason you’ll stay on track, working through the hardest times to get through. It’s what makes it all worth it.

2. What:

You need to understand what you do. With. Clarity. Without this, you become hazy on all of the issues. Your purpose becomes hazy, your customer becomes hazy, and you end up selling ANYTHING to ANYONE, which means you sell NOTHING to NO ONE. This becomes tricky, as it becomes difficult to ostracize anyone, in fear that we are losing business, however, the clearer we can be, the more we attract even those outside our niche. People are generally attracted to those who are CERTAIN about the REASON they are in business AND the specific product or service they are selling.

To wrap this up, when we can figure out our DEEP why, and what, we become able to serve the world in a much DEEPER way. Also remember this is not a one-time-thing. Please feel free to revisit EVERY time you have a transition within your business. The what and why are to evolve as you and your business do, so think in terms of the next 90 days to make your specific what and why easier to discern. Good luck and I’m here for you whenever you need more clarity or just support through this very important process.

If you’re into it, and have friends you know you could teach these principles to, please share this blog and let me know in the comments what your What and Why are for the next 90 days!

Have you ever been in a slump in your business? That deep cave of the doldrums where creativity has been pulled stage left, your clients are non existent or responsive the way they used to be? You are not alone. Business slumps, as regular as they are almost ALWAYS seem to last FOREVER! When our business life is flourishing, we tend to take this time for granted, as in we believe it SHOULD be this way always.

Now there’s something to be said about our mental equivalent being this good, as you wouldn’t be in business if you thought it would all go to hell all the time. So because we tend to feel normal and easy when things are on the uptake, we become very uncomfortable with slumps, and tend to have no patience while we are there. The slump is truly a feeling of ultimate failure, as though the end has arrived, and our business is done. We also tend to finalize any idea that does not fully pan out. Oddly it is difficult to let an idea not succeed.

We attach ourselves to it being the only way through, when in fact there are infinite possibilities and this is just one. Yes, in good times, we all know this, but when we fall into any slump, sometimes these principles feel like “pie in the sky” ideas. Due to the nature of a slump, and the short attention span we have for anything positive, The following are three REALISTIC things you need to know in the moment to help you move forward.

1. Remember the slump means you’re alive

All of life has cycles, ups, downs, ins and outs. Think of the heartbeat. We would be dead if we just had the one end of the pump. We need the up AND the down of the heartbeat to keep our blood moving. Business is exactly the same. When you are in a slump, remember, this means your business is alive! This is a good thing. Our sleep cycle is also an up and a down. If we never slept, we would die.

2. Create a list of things you’ve been too busy for during the up cycle

This means that as part of the cycle, there is meaningful work that can only happen during times that are slower. Think about the less exciting things that must be done, in times of a low. Research, brainstorming new projects, or even just rest. We tend to have a very difficult time doing the insular parts of business when clients need you, or your product sales are up. All those things that feel important, but you’re too busy during times of success, can all be made into a list of, “I’ll do that later.” Well, sister, time to pull that baby out! Get on task and remember this is all part of what needs to be done.

3. Don’t take the “ups” OR the “downs” for granted

In both  successful times AND slumps, due to the nature of thinking they will last forever, we often take both times for granted. It may be weird to think we’d take a slump for granted, but we do. We wallow in self pity, and forget that the busy “up” cycle is just around the corner. This isn’t even positive thinking. The regrets we experience in our successful times include the frustration of not completing our “I’ll do that later” list.

The moral of the story is truly to understand both times of slump and success are temporary. Attempt to avoid getting egotistical during successful times, and remember the temporary nature of the slump.


Whenever a paradigm shift occurs, we end up witnessing new leaders emerge. The interesting thing is that these new leaders are often not the experts in the industry they work. Think about Elon Musk. He became the leader in space technology not due to advanced degrees in aerospace engineering, but because he could hold a large vision despite the actual experts who continuously refuted it.

Entrepreneurs into Leaders

The leaders of industrial paradigm shifts will inevitably be entrepreneurs, as holding an impossible vision becomes more important than any technical need. But why?

Experts have the knowledge, and can be found grounded in the basic foundations of their industry. In this respect they can be instrumental in micro industrial advancements.

Why can’t the experts lead the way in an industrial paradigm shift?

In order to revolutionize or shift an industry, we must shake the foundation of the industry. It takes someone outside the industry to question the foundation and ask the all-important question, “what if we could do it differently?”

How do we realize a vision without experts? We don’t.

If the vision is big or impossible enough, you have to understand that it will become a magnet for the best of the best in that industry. The brightest minds seem to be attracted to new and innovative things, but dare not question their own foundation. So the idea of being PART of a paradigm shift is the perfect combination of safety AND excitement.

Elon Musk had the best in engineering begging to be a part of his vision, and in one meeting, Elon brought up the idea of a solar solution to charge the battery of a Tesla as you were driving. A very privileged and assured engineer claimed, “With all due respect, this just isn’t possible.” The only response from Musk: “Do you want to be in this meeting, or not?”

Now think about the bravery of that question…. it takes a lot of courage to hold an impossible vision over the opinions of industry experts. It’s not better to be either, however it is imperative you get clear on whether you’re a vision holder or an industry expert.

Business & Friends

Have you been there? A friend feels they’d be great in business with you and wants to start drafting a plan, or your close friend comes to you with her dream and wants you to invest time, energy, money etc. You want to be happy for her without really getting involved. Are you really friends if you wouldn’t do business with them? Do you have to be friends to make a successful business partnership? What do you owe your friend if you don’t want to partner or simply don’t feel it would be a good fit without ruining your friendship?

Here are three simple  yet powerful questions to help you to figure out where your friend lies in your business life, and what to do about it.

Filter 1:  Do I like this person?

Well obviously, if they’re your friend, this is an easy answer. The only thing you owe someone you like is your inclination to listen to them. If I like you, I will listen to you. That’s it! These relationships are valuable and needed for our social life!
What NEXT:  You don’t have to be their surrogate mother, adopt a dog together, or go into business with them. They are simply your friend and the relationship need not go any further than that! These friends just stay at this level and you move on! If they pass this test, move onto Filter 2.

Filter 2:  Do I trust this person?

This is a VERY different question than whether you like them. Trust stirs at the deeper levels of our psyche and foundations. Usually the first answer that comes to you instinctively is the one you should follow. Have they shown questionable ethics in the past in their business, or personal lives? Are they a gossip? Would you trust them to hold your cash on a night out? Would you let them babysit for you?
What Next:  If the answer to this anything less than a solid YES, move this friend BACK to  Zone 1. Enjoy these folks as your friends, listen, exchange ideas with them, but these are not your business partner people.
If the answer is an astounding YES, you can move forward to the consideration phase. Do NOT commit to anything but allow yourself to strongly consider being in business with this person.

Filter 3:  Do I respect this person?

Respect is, yet again, much deeper than even TRUST! When you respect someone, therein lies a DEEP appreciation of the accomplishments, achievements, and knowledge they have proven to you over time. You can trust your girlfriend to hold your cash for a night of clubbing, but really ask yourself, what you admire about this person, and if those qualities are transferable to business.
What Next:  If you have arrived here and really think Laura, your clubbing buddy might not fit into your idea of admiration, move her BACK to filter 2, and understand that you’ll always consider her ideas, AND unapologetically understand you’ll probably never do business with them.
If you DO like, trust, and respect this person, you can somewhat confidently move forward in business together.
The main point here is to understand that you can be friends with someone without needing to trust or respect them. You can have business cohorts, as well as friends you’d never go into business with. Both are great! We cannot just have one or the other in life, right?
The key is to QUICKLY compartmentalize the non-business partner people through all three filters to avoid wasting time considering EVERY friend’s idea EVERY time.
Now, #GoExecute

Unapologetically Confident?

Just be yourself! We’ve heard it a thousand times, as though it really is just that easy. As we explore this idea of being unapologetically confident, I can fully understand both the popularity of wanting to come off this way, while also subconsciously not acting on it. Unapologetic confidence is NOT safe, and pours gasoline on the proverbial fire of criticism. I actually applaud folks who avoid pretending they have this quality, and just admit it’s too much. For those who FEEL they embody living unapologetically confident, answer these 4 questions as honestly as possible.

1.  Are you ok when others label you quickly and easily?

Scared of being pigeon holed as “Just another (vegetarian, Trump supporter, liberal, fundamentalist Christian, gay, feminist, man, trust fund baby, etc.) You should be, it’s scary to be in a room filled with people  who hate whatever category your beliefs might be in just to answer honestly and feel excluded as they scoff.

I’m not talking about shouting out your views, but we all have been in those moments where we truly are the only outlier, and find it paralyzing to disagree. The fear here is exclusion by others. Most people will claim they don’t care what people think, until they do. Until it’s uncomfortable. Then most of us crack, don’t speak up, or just agree to things almost subconsciously by responding, “Yeah.” or nodding our heads as someone talks.

Notice the next time you do this, and ask yourself what the consequence would be if they knew how you really felt. It’s ok to keep your views to yourself, but being true to your own integrity can be really uncomfortable, when the risk is exclusion.

Unapologetically confident

2.  Do you say Yes to things you later regret?

Or worse make up excuses for why you CAN’T do something? In Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), it is a practice for people to change the word can’t into won’t. Try it…. it actually does take practice, and it’s the TRUTH! Physically there are few things you can’t do that might be requested of you. For instance, we are asked “Can you meet up Saturday?” What is the truth? Can you? Of course! Even if you already had other plans, the truth is that it’s not impossible.

The truth, in this case, is that you’re choosing to prioritize a prior commitment and don’t want to make time. The truth isn’t that you can’t, it’s that you won’t. How mind-blowing is it that the truth sounds terrifying? Who are we when we make an excuse for not doing something we authentically don’t want to do? Who are we if we tell the truth? If you have a rough time telling the truth, you are not being unapologetically confident, but that’s not wrong!

3.  Do you have “Me too/I know/yeah/mm hm” syndrome?

Not the abuse phrase, the natural tendency to agree as people talk as though you either know the details of the subject they’re discussing, can relate, have had a similar experience, or generally agree.  This is a rough one, because asking for clarification, or making it known that you’re uneducated on a subject matter unveils you as an outlier. Subconsciously our environment teaches us to protect our psyche by auto-piloting our responses to general agreement. Fascinating!

4.  How often do you say “Sorry” without noticing?

In our culture it has become a prefix to almost any sentence.  Another subconscious idiom that when investigated deeply almost is NEVER true.

Some translations:

“Sorry, can you say that again? I couldn’t hear you.”

In this sentence that is used so often, let’s explore the truth. Are we really apologizing for our inability to hear someone? Or do we assume it’s offensive that someone would have the burden of repeating themselves? The true sentence reads, “Could you speak up? I can’t hear you.”

Looking at these introspective questions, it might give us more compassion for those who do have a difficult time “just being themselves.” We may want to live with unapologetic confidence, but do our actions match our desire? The key is to keep out of judgement while answering these questions. The work is just awareness of the truth. Good Luck!
