"the hand we're dealt is just a starting point; it's our choices afterward that reveal what genuinely matters to us." Reading #onlyness by @nilofer and getting all sorts of 💡.

Someday, when we publish the Where There's Smoke coffee table book, I am going to wish I tracked all the locations where I recorded episodes. This is the set up for Episode 58 in my hotel room this morning. I'd guess the precious 57 shows have been recorded in at least 30 different locations. From hotel rooms to closets to duvet forts to spare bedrooms. Shout out to Nick, who make my audio sound great, wherever it is recorded. 🎤 💻 Season 4 of Where There's Smoke launches this Tuesday September 19th. And we're starting with something easy ... How do you change the world 🌎 (like, for real) Don't worry, we brought in some big guns. (Thanks @nilofer) Be sure to subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts, and it will be there waiting for you Tuesday morning.🗓Then new episode the first and third Tuesday of the month, all the way until May! #podcast #wheretheressmoke #nilofermerchant #onlyness #idlovetochangetheworld #ideas #action #belonging #recording #hotelstudio #ritzcarlton #sofancy #rigged

No sabéis la ilusión que me hacen los comentarios que me dejáis en los Photo Diary. Se que no son el contenido habitual que podéis leer en www.onlyness.es y por eso siempre pienso mucho si os gustará o si por el contrario pensaréis que es un aburrimiento. Y, no os voy a engañar, ante la duda pienso que a mí me encanta compartir con vosotras las fotos de mi viaje, contaros como fue mi día a día, como si estuviéramos tomando un café virtual. ☕ Por eso, cuando compartis el post, me dejáis un comentario, o simplemente lo leéis siento que no me tomo el café sola y me sacáis una sonrisa enorme. ¡Gracias por estar ahí! 😘😘 . . Pd.: Si a alguien no le gusta este tipo de contenido, ¡que no cunda el pánico! El domingo 1 de Octubre vuelven las temáticas habituales en www.onlyness.es 😉😊

“So, woah, this book tour comes with gifts. This @WacomBamboo is for #makingideas . What perfect tie to #onlyness .” - @Nilofer . We’re so excited to have @nilofer in our house at the @wacom_experience_center on 9/14 from 6-8pm to talk about her newest book, The Power of #Onlyness . In this book, Merchant shares her expertise on ways of connecting our ideas to the world around us in an era when the potential to make a difference is no longer bound by social status.
Pssh, Pssh! Desde esta mañana tenéis un nuevo post con fotos de Sienna,, San Gimigniano y Pissa ¿Lo habéis visto? 😊
I wrote that book a few months ago. And now the #babygirl it was written for is two months old. Right below that are books written women I've had the pleasure of meeting. The power of #onlyness by @nilofer and #thebiglife by @annshoket. I can't believe that my coffee table currently has books only by #women . But it's a great, pleasant discovery
Sometimes it takes you 21 years to muster up the desire to unpack 21 years of research, life, and emotions. I have @nilofer's dynamic new book "The Power of Onlyness" to thank for getting me to a place where I could unpack things I've been carrying around in my life for probably way too long into my latest @medium piece I wrote entitled “A Black Man Discovers #onlyness & American Identity Via A Native American Perspective” https://medium.com/@marcuskdowling/a-black-man-discovers-onlyness-american-identity-via-a-native-american-perspective-27d67e5d9628
Last night was one of my favorite nights of all time. @womenatforbes celebrated the publication of @nilofer's book The Power of Onlyness with a standing room only audience filled with many friends asking deep and meaningful questions. As if that wasn't amazing enough, we had a panel of diverse women who brought their #onlyness to the room, sharing deep personal stories of what has held them back and propelled them. I had goosebumps the whole night and then when I got home I had to pinch myself to make sure it was real #wearewhatwecreate
Martha Graham. Dancer. Choreographer. Collaborator. Definitely an Only, as were most of the #womenwhomadeny . Shall we discuss this tonight @nilofer? #PattiSmith . #EthelWaters . #LaLupe . #laurieanderson . #eleanorroosevelt #louisenevelson #yokoono #antoniapantoja #ellabaker #umamysorekar #hettygreen #patriciafield #aleliawalker #bettyleesung #dianavreeland #mamaleone #ednalewis #christinesahadi #gaelgreene #barbaragittings . Each and every one. #Onlyness .
Who knew she loved books so much! Well, then again who wouldn't love the brand new #Onlyness book by @Nilofer Merchant! Image captured by the brilliant @moorehn #pupstagram #pups #dogs #dogstagram #rescuedog #dogsofinstgram #writersofinstagram #bestseller #bookstagram #books #book -party
This is Chioma Ebinama, an illustrator and artist whose work is in #onlyness . I had hand drawn my own funky (um, drawing is not a gift) art as placeholders in the manuscript and @vikingbooks had then tried to politely ask what I wanted to do... "should we clean this up for you". Instead I found and hired --with the help of @wendymac and #womenwhodraw -- the talented @chiomaaaaaa . She got the big idea and made it come to life. This is us last night (there was a fête at @susanmcp1 for the inner circle) holding our collective, collaborative work. #bookstagram #booktour #writerslife #writersofinstagram #grateful
I am fueled by inspiring women and buoyed by powerful women supporting other women. Can't wait to read Nilofer Merchant's latest "The Power of Onlyness" on sale this month. Milofer (on right) pictured showcasing the original illustrations in her book that she commissioned from rising star artist Chioma Ebinama (on left) at her launch party hosted by the one and only Susan McPherson.

It's a reminder that, quite simply, we all matter" - Jessica Jackley, cofounder of Kiva #mustread #literary #book #onlyness #thefutureisfemale #femalepower #writing #grateful
This magical being is someone I am lucky to call a friend and a mentor. And while I've been spoiled for YEARS receiving her sage counsel on all aspects of my life, now everyone can benefit from her deep wisdom in the form of her new book #Onlyness . Read it. It will shift you. I promise. Congrats my dear friend @nilofer. What a wonderful evening celebrating your gift to the world (with a pretty magical crew of boss ladies btw).
Celebrating @nilofer and the launch of #onlyness with so many incredible women! @itsanjalikumar @itsziasharma @susanmcp1 @cindygallop @stacylondonreal @cmwalla @ruackerman @kminshew @rachelsklar @ruthannharnisch Hey BOSTON - you can hear this amazing woman speak at Lotus Festival next week!!!!!
Labels are useful – to a point. But there's lots they can't tell you, like what makes someone unique. Join me tomorrow night at Brooklyn Historical Society, 6:30, to hear about "onlyness", the topic of a fascinating new book by @nilofer.

Lo sé, lo sé, el Italia Photo Diary de ayer fue muy light, así para ponernos en situación, pero… ¡mañana empieza lo bueno! Como os contaba ayer por Twitter, publicar los Photo Diary un día tras otro me parecía que podía saturaros y si publicaba uno cada Domingo nos iban a dar las uvas, así que durante las próximas semanas va a haber nuevo post de la serie Italia Photo Diary los Domingos, Martes y Jueves. . P.D.: Y en el de mañana os enseñaré este hotel tan chulo de Florencia…
THE best book i have read in years. Couldn't put it down and have pages and pages of notes. This new book from Nilofer Merchant is a deep dive into YOU making a DENT. She discusses power, creativity and making a difference in the world being something that is accessible to everyone - not just those who have been given a leadership title. We ALL matter and inside of our collaboration and individuality, there is greatness to be had, discovered and introduced to the world. @nilofer --- thank you so much for this work you put into this book and for the reminder that we can ALL "make our wild ideas mighty enough to dent the world!"
¡Buenas tardes! Por fín, después del parón veraniego, retomo el blog con una serie de post que espero que os gusten mucho. El #Photodiary del viaje que hicimos a #Italia durante la primera quincena de Julio. . Ya tenéis el primer post en el blog de nuestra llegada a #Milan . ¡Espero que os guste tanto como a mi prepararlo! :)

Onlyness is that thing that only that one individual can bring to a situation. It includes the journey and passions of each human. Onlyness is fundamentally about honoring each person: First as we view ourselves and second as we are valued. Each of us is standing in a spot that no one else occupies. That unique point of view is born of our accumulated experience, perspective, and vision. Some of those experiences are not as “perfect” as we might want, but even those experiences are a source for what you create. For example, the person whose younger sibling has a disease might grow up to work in medicine to find the cure. The person who is obsessed with beautiful details might end up caring about industrial design and reinvent how we all use technology. The person who has grown up under oppression might end up advocating for freedom of speech and thus advance the condition of his country. This individual onlyness is the fuel of vast creativity, innovations, and adaptability. -- Nilofer Merchant @nilofer #Onlyness
¿Qué mejor forma de prepararse para Septiembre que estrenando foto nueva de perfil para las redes y el blog?
Day 71 // In which I (significantly) overestimate the amount of bubble bath 🛀 needed in a jet stream bath. :: An ongoing, just won't quit virus and some severe shoulder tension sent me scuttling into a hot bath with a good book for my moments of self-care today. :: I like to take baths of two halves. :: Act One - I read a good book, carefully not dropping my kindle in the water. There may or may not be wine at this stage. :: Act Two - I put the book down (safely!) and float for a while gently mulling over things in my head. :: Today's book choice was a good one. Recommended by a friend just a few hours ago, I downloaded Nilofer Merchant's new book "The Power of Onlyness " :: I could barely put it down to get to Act Two of my bath, and boy, does that book need plenty of Act Two. Clever, thought-provoking, necessary reading. :: It's rare, these days, that I feel recognised in a book. Not a lot of what I do professionally, in the way that I do it gets written about in a book. Because people who are making small but significant impact in the world don't get written about in books. Not big enough, not shiny enough. :: I've always felt that's how to measure if people are on the right track. Because they do what they are called to do anyway. . They do it anyway even when no one else is looking. . They do it anyway even if there is no external validation or reward. . They do it anyway even if everyone else around them thinks that they're crazy. . They do it anyway because they are quite simply unable not to do it. :: For me, there are two forms of leadership; organic leadership - the type that springs out of people like a well they can't shut off. Which magnetises others to them. And celebrity leadership. Thats the type of leadership where someone shows up to let you know that they're your leader. :: "There go my people, I must find out where they are going so I can lead them." Alexandre Auguste Ledru-Rollin. :: There's room for both. But what's already clear in Onlyness, just a few chapters in, is that we need to stop mistaking one for the other. Because in our rush to follow the celebrity leaders we are overlooking the small but mighty impact of organic leadership.
[STAFF PICKS] Nilofer Merchant’s message is so critical now, calling us to identify what is good in ourselves and to connect with what is good in others so that, together, we can dent the world. Link's in the bio to read our review of ONLYNESS.

Nilofer Merchant’s newest book is an accessible, timely, relevant, bold and powerful guide that shows how anyone can use their own ideas to make a valuable contribution. #onlyness #accessible #timely #relevant #bold #tangible #transformation #value #identity #scale #cocreation #purpose #connection #contribution #empowered #power #powerful #roadmap #enabler #collective #nilofermerchant #nilofer Read my full review on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/33656403-the-power-of-onlyness
Today is #Day4 of the 5-day #Greatnesschallenge with @lewishowes Today I'm sharing a quote that inspires me to stay committed to my vision. The other day, someone asked me how I was different from other people who coach single women and why would someone choose to work with me rather than someone else. The conviction of my response both surprised me and made me really happy...I said what makes me different is that I'm me. There may be other people coaching single women but nobody will do it exactly how I will. There are people out there who will vibe with my style, my personality, my values and my message. I don't have to resort to gimmicks or tactics that seem inauthentic to me in order to stand out. I just have to be me. And everyone else just has to be themselves. There is more than enough space in this world for all of us to do our thing even if we're doing very similar things. I thank my coach @jocaseyb for introducing me to this concept and I thank @nilofermerchant for creating such a beautiful concept that I will use to guide me when doubt inevitably arises as I work towards my vision. 🌟
