Reading
For most successful people people such as myself who are constantly reading in order to gain new knowledge and understanding of a variety of topics. Reading articles and books related to your field can help you stay current on the latest methods and trends in the industry. I have also found that in most cases that for myself that reading is associated unfamiliar topics can help you learn new information. Additionally, I have found that reading about topics that interest myself have given me more insight can be fun and can be relaxing too.

2. Exercising
I have also discovered and also found that most people who appreciate and understand the value of keeping their bodies and mind healthy and strong. I have found that exercise is a terrific way to activate my brain and keeps myself focused on my daily tasks. Additionally, working out also helps strengthen my cognitive functions and can reduce stress and anxiety. Other successful people generally go to sleep early and wake up early, so providing one's body with routine physical activity so that I am able to achieve and have a better rest at night. Furthermore, working out can boost my self-confidence, which may myself to better accept challenges and take more risks that a I normally wouldn't take on otherwise.

3. Promoting positivity
Another of my routine habits as seen in other successful people is that I surround myself with other positive social interactions on a consistent daily basis. As with many other successful people who are typically optimistic people themselves and as they project such positivity to others. In addition, like many other successful people I have formed and consistently do maintain meaningful relationships with family, friends and individuals in their professional networks accordingly too, as well.

4. Preserving work-life balance
I have seen also can reiterate that in any role, it is important to sustain a proper work-life balance in order to avoid burnout and remain engaged within in one's position. I have found that like other successful, people I can understand there is an importance of preserving the work-life balance, which will end one's workday at a set time and thereby spend therefore the remainder of the day relaxing and enjoying the company of friends and family.

5. Keeping track of ways they can improve Like most other successful people therefore I feel that there is a need to constantly look for improvements which can help improved aspects of my self development and making it prevalent in my professional positions. For example, I normally may make a list of the different ways that I can streamline work processes and or list out many more efficient ways that I can conduct my business meetings. Nevertheless, like most other proficient people I am constantly am looking for ways to better myself, personally and professionally.

Related: 6 Good Workplace Habits to Help You Succeed in Your Career 6. For myself I have consistently looked for ways to improve on and establish my effective network with older clients and those interested in my services. Like most other successful people my innate ability to build an effective network is something I am consciously working on daily. In this regard I am consistently looking for ways to connect to a range of other professionals who can help me with finding new opportunities. I have fund this incredibly valuable to establish a functional network. Likewise, I've found that my upgraded network has been constructed, it is important to maintain and nurture those connections over time., through client offers, database upgrade and a range of STEM solutions.

7. Giving to others
I have worked hard to be able to help successful people and ensure in that they are typically helping those in need. In this way, by giving to others may include volunteer work or donating money to certain charities or organizations. In either case, I'm consistently looking for ways to help others which is a great way to interact with other people and become involved within the community.

8. Helping others to diversify income
Most of the time, like other successful people I have aimed to diversify my income, meaning they I rely on more than one method of income. I have helped other individuals to look outside of their job but also be invested in real estate or other industries. By diversifying different aspects of such income one can look to add multiple income streams to your finances, that can be helpful especially when you suddenly lose one or more of those sources of income.

9. Prioritizing professional development I have consistently looked for ways to improve on my professional development and also look to seek out opportunities to grow my career. Engaging in professional development seminars, training and courses I can then help other's to learn new skills that you I can utilize in my job. Additionally, professional development allows one to build upon all respective avenues tk strengthen the skills that I have already established. Furthermore, professional development provides opportunities to network with other professionals in the field, and in this way the projected successes achieved to date has helped, me to empower others and their associated work too.

10. Encouraging and accepting feedback
Another habit that I have been consciously working on in order to be a more empathetic successful person is the ability to encourage others and also to be able to accept feedback. I feel that in any role, that through encouraging feedback one can help others see and discover a variety of ways to be more effective within their job. Additionally, I have found that it shows other employees that you are inviting honest conversations about your position and that you are accepting all aspects feedback you receive, in order to empower my work team. The similar process is utilized to empower and through effective dialogue, increases the success of my students, and those others that I interreact with me, Inspirational statement: When I reflect over my achievements particularly in the last 3 years in achieving and being awarded high honours for my Masters in Advanced Teaching and research (STEAM Education) and in advocating tirelessly to ensure equality of human rights for the Galpu, Yognglu people of Eastern Arnhem land, there are certain goals I've achieved and am very proud of. On further reflection I would state that, and in accordance with the work from Elisabeth Elliot, " Think of the self that God has given as an acorn. It is a marvellous little thing, a perfect shape, perfectly designed for its purpose, perfectly functional. Think of the grand glory of an oak tree. God’s intention when He made the acorn was the oak tree. His intention for us is ‘… the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.’ Many deaths must go into our reaching that measure, many letting-goes. When you look at the oak tree, you don’t feel that the loss’ of the acorn is a very great loss. The more you perceive God’s purpose in your life, the less terrible the losses seem." I feel this quote represents the struggles I've particularly faced over the last 4 years during the perceived pandemic, and the immeasurable work we had achieved through local courts, supreme and the High Courts of Queensland , and the Darwin Northern Territory, in enforcing "ethical approaches" to dealing with the indigenous tribes in the region. We were able to secure the majority of sovereign land in the Arnhem region and working tirelessly to setup 2 annexed micronations, whilst improving health, educational services in the Region. We also worked with legal authorities and the Stolen Arts division of Interpol France in returning some of the art works from both the Galpu and Yong glu peoples with several placed on notice. Essentially the final stages of annexure for the Royal Kingdom of Galpu, and of ongoing establishment of a people's bank to empower the regional Indigenous, communities and other Australia is something of a legacy. When I think of the Acorn leading to the solid tempest of an Oak tree I have been scarred and battered by trials and tribulations to help the Australian and Indigenous Australian, people. I have faced my fears and learned to place more blind faith and trust in the Holy God (3 in 1). I believe that my acceptance into the Knights of the Royal Oak, will ensure that my soul of chivalry and bark of my oaken experiences in life, will refine my timber in the prolific evolving tree, empowered by Lore and Mother Nature, and glory. I know that given the right support and environment, my pledge and quest of loyalty won't be denied and I would pledge to work with you immediately. Thanks you and God Bless.

A member of a poor family, who left school at 16 years in 1974 with no qualifications, I joined the Army. Quickly recognising the need for personal development, the next 30 years culminated in 3 postgraduate degrees. By the 1990's I was engaged in active citizenship as Chair of both local and city wide, Housing Liaison Boards within Birmingham, UK.

Since 2004, I have been lead carer for four looked after children. In 2006 I qualified as a Maths teacher in England and focused on those with Special Educational Need and learning Difficulties. I was briefly a Parish Councillor in my village until ill health forced me to retire completely. Now severely disabled, I continue to mentor Looked After Children in my care, going beyond my 'duty of care' expectations. I have been a Fellow of The Royal Society of Arts, manufactures and commerce since 2015.

I have learned one thing in life. If you suddenly wake up one morning with a vision to improve yourself and others, remember; The only thing holding you back is, you. Once you take the small first step on the path to success, there will be many others along the route who are ready and willing to 'Guide, Energise and Excite you'. To steal the words of Shakespeare 'I dare do all that be a man, he who doth more is none'.

A charity close to my heart is the worldwide effort to find an effective treatment and cure for EPILEPSY, a cause which the late Queen held near and dear to Her Majesty. One in twenty-six people will experience seizures during their life. THREE of my immediate family – a sister and two of my three children – are afflicted with this insidious disease.
.
I worry continuously that my loved ones may experience an unexpected seizure in public and an untrained emergency responder may use unnecessary, perhaps even lethal force as my darling may lash out in confusion while coming out of a seizure. We must push hard with research, with science, with all the tools at our disposal to find long-term effective treatment, or a cure, fight day after day and harder the next, to relieve the suffering, educate the public, and remove the stigma which surrounds this ailment.
.
I believe that the collective efforts of a noble charitable fellowship such as KRO can do great things toward alleviating suffering in our world. Together we can plant the seeds, the acorns if you will, of cures for many of the ills of today’s children. My own emphasis is on finding a cure for epilepsy through the scientific breakthroughs which gene editing tools like CRISPR have provided.

I am a descendant of Sir Compton Reade, 1st Baronet of Barton and Shipton, bestowed by Charles II in the spring of 1661, less than one year after the Restoration, in recognition of his courage under the fire of Cromwell’s Army as a teenaged Compton protected Queen Henrietta and helped in her escape to the Continent. My second cousin Sir Kenneth Ray Reade was the 13th Baronet of that line, who died in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA in 2012. I am closest in line and presume the Stylings as a Placeholder until the details can be sorted with the King’s College of Arms in The City.

Name

Danielle Bienvenu

Titles Held

Lady of Estons

County/Region/State

Texas

Country

USA

Her full name is Danielle Nicole Bienvenu, Lady of Estons, or simply known as Lady Estons. Danielle’s life could almost be misconstrued for a novel itself. She began dancing and competing in pageants at three years old, professional modeling on runways and in print ads at ten, performing in a local theater company by ten, professional acting in pilots and commercials at twelve, wrote her first novel at fourteen, and subsequently published it at only seventeen years old. To date, she has sixteen published novels. Her publications include:

Against All Odds: The Ruby Princess (22 April 2004) Le Beau Coeur: The Beautiful Heart (17 February 2010) Sarah's Secret: Book One in the Desert Sands Series (5 February 2013) Running From My Shadow (31 January 2013) Once In A Lifetime (10 February 2013) The Gilded Mirror (6 February 2013) My Brother's Keeper (1 February 2013) Roberts, Dana; 21 (24 April 2016) Taming the Free Spirit (5 July 2016) The Right Kind of Perfect (11 April 2016) Escaping Lila (12 April 2016) The Elopement (11 April 2016) Changing Stripes (4 April 2016) He's Mental, That's Why! (2 April 2016) The Life of Virginia Wargenheimer (26 March 2016), and What Am I? Book One: Element Tsaddikim (15 October 2015).

Danielle is best known for her mystery and psychological thrillers, romance, suspense, poetic symbolism, and works against social injustices. Her genres range from thrillers, mystery, romance, historical fiction, drama, young adult satire, paranormal, poetry, nouveau romain, Christian, and novellas. Her works, no matter the genre, share a common thread: social consciousness. She is known as an avid reader matched by her love for writing and performing her own music.

Childhood and Young Adulthood

Danielle was born July 19, 1986, in Nederland, Texas, USA to Reverend Richard Paul Bienvenu, Sr. and Cathy Ann Howard. She is the only child of her mother and the youngest and only daughter of her father.

She has lived a multitude of lives in one: an international pageant winner, award-winning choreographer, dance teacher, ballerina in an English dance company, belly dancer, actress, model, a multilingual French and English teacher, a seasoned missionary, an international traveler, singer and songwriter, author, an intuitive detective for cold cases, volunteer and advocate for women’s rights and disability rights, and a life-long learner as evidenced by her many degrees.

Education

MA International Law & International Relations from Oxford Brookes University, Headington, Oxfordshire, England 2014; BA French, Lamar University, USA 2012; BA Political Science, Lamar University, USA 2008; Minor in Creative Writing, Lamar University, USA 2008; Generalist EC-12 Teacher’s certification, Lamar University, USA 2012; National Security certificate, Harvard University, USA 2014; Justice certificate, Harvard University, USA 2013; Counter-Terrorism certificate, Georgetown University, USA, 2013; American Sign Language, Lamar University, USA 2019-2022. She is currently pursuing her MBA in Entrepreneurship & Marketing at her first alumni.

Danielle graduated from high school a year early, in 2003 with a perfect grade point average, by teaching herself home school from textbooks (her father taught her mathematics). She used her gap year to publish her first novel, Against All Odds: The Ruby Princess, and write a plethora of short stories, poems, and lyrics that would one day become published. When attending school, she was in Honors classes, ranking college level in all except Math, her least favorite subject. She excelled in performance choir, advanced art, science, history, English, and the like. Ironically, she was never allowed to study acting in school when she was a professional actress. Although she later attended university in England, she spent her formative years in Southeast Texas. It wasn’t until her sixteenth birthday that her mother took her to Europe, visiting nine countries; but it was in England where she decided to study one day at university. While in school she participated in cheerleading, student council, Bible club, 4-H fashion shows, archery, and was a student news announcer. Even as a child she was an activist, recruiting the neighborhood children to create picketing signs for animal rights and nature preservation at only six years old. Furthermore, founded and spearheaded Young Leaders of Jefferson County, a political club highlighting the importance of voting, and worked as a speechwriter for her father’s Justice of the Peace campaign in high school. It was at this pivotal moment Danielle met Texas Governor Rick Perry and Governor George W. Bush, the future 43rd President of the United States. During the summer, she delved into her love for history by volunteering as a junior guide at the McFaddin-Ward House Museum. Moreover, Danielle began snorkeling and scuba diving in Mexico with sharks and stingrays at ten years old, where she often spent summers. Also while in Mexico, Danielle saved a teenage girl from drowning while she was only eleven years old.
Her segway into modeling and acting began at three years old when she won overall in her first beauty pageant. She went on to win countless titles from local, state, national, and international competitions for twelve years. She began her dream of modeling on runway at eight years old and pursued professional modeling in print ads for Weiner’s, Oshman’s, and Academy with Page Parkes Intermedia and Bellissima modeling agencies. Her favorite form of modeling was runway. After acting in plays at her local theatre, at twelve Danielle began acting in commercials for Academy and in a pilot series for Warner Brothers beside Hillary Duff and Shelley Duvall (Dreams in the Attic) through Pastorini-Bosby acting agency. Her original love was dance and she knew it well: ballet, tap, jazz, pointe, lyrical, and hip-hop. Later in college and young adulthood, she would continue with salsa, ballroom, hula, Irish jig, pow wow, and belly dance. She became a hip-hop, ballet, tap, and character dance instructor and while living in England in 2013 she was selected as a ballerina in the Brookes Dance Company. After an injury to her knees, she withdrew from the dance company and, determined as ever to achieve another dream, taught herself acoustic guitar. She danced in some shape or form for the majority of her life.
She was a social butterfly as a child, however; once her parents divorced and subsequently divorced their spouses, she drew herself further into the world of books and began experimenting with writing. She began writing lyrics at seven years old and resumed it and poetry much later in her college years. While in college, Danielle participated in Lamar University Debate Team’s poetry division, the Model Arab League of Nations (delegate for Kuwait representing Women & Children’s rights), acted as Vice Chairman of the International Guest Committee for the Middle East, a peer advisor, held office as the French Club President for years, and a member of the Christian sorority Sigma Phi Lambda (of which she was voted as President and Vice President, declining). She enthusiastically began serving through Christian missions in college nationally and internationally. While her early childhood afforded her wealth, it was in her teenage years that Danielle experienced the harsh realities of poverty and being raised by single parents, sometimes unsure where the next meal would come from. She later utilized those moments to constructively impact children in poverty as an educator. Also as an educator, she sponsored an international club to promote an understanding of foreign cultures as well as a Bible club for students.

Advocacy & Humanitarian Efforts

Danielle is outspoken about being a voice for the voiceless whether human or animal and is a speaker on overcoming depression and suicide. Because of her past, Danielle has the unique ability to identify and relate with those currently in situations she has overcome. She has used her platform as a guest speaker at churches and as a motivational speaker for women’s conferences—in both the U.K. and U.S.A., to break the stereotype surrounding abuse and to increase educational awareness specifically within the faith community, where some are most vulnerable. After fleeing an attempt on her life, an abusive and dangerous marriage, and surviving rape and molestation, she sought to use her outlook on women’s rights by obtaining her Master’s degree in International Law and International Relations with an emphasis on Human Rights, specifically that of women and Indigenous peoples. Addressing the issue of abusive relationships, suicide, depression, and rape within the faith community is not always met with open arms nevertheless Danielle understands that for there to be a change it is imperative to discuss these topics and educate others. “If I had known the warning signs of abuse, of a potential rapist, if I had been educated about depression and suicide, I think my life would have been drastically different,” she notes. Additionally, she volunteered helping victims of domestic violence and rape in the U.S.A. obtain restraining orders and face their attackers in court, the very thing she wished she had mustered the courage to do for herself years prior.
Danielle is also a proud advocate for disabled persons, predominantly those with vocal disorders, deaf, and hard of hearing, life experiences she understands well. Danielle has a vocal disorder (Muscular Tension Dysphonia) and is also hard of hearing in tandem with disabilities such as Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and other complications from multiple car wrecks and injuries, thirty-seven conditions in total. She has hosted workshops teaching local churches American Sign Language to bridge gaps between hearing and hearing-impaired peoples in the U.S.A. Danielle has an extensive history of humanitarian outreaches including teaching English to underdeveloped rural communities in Sichuan Province, China, building youth centers in Belize, developing summer youth programs with the Pima Tribe of Arizona, and feeding the homeless in Galveston Island, Texas. While a member of Amnesty International at Oxford Brookes University, Danielle wrote campaign letters to free political prisoners in Indonesia. Forbye, she is candid about the need for better and more accessible healthcare within economically underprivileged, vocal disorder, deaf, hard of hearing, and disabled communities. She spent nearly three years in a wheelchair after incurring injuries in conjunction with losing her voice entirely for over a year before retraining herself to speak again. It was during this time that Danielle ceased performing music and teaching intuition classes. Her entire life changed. The lack of Sign Language interpreters and patient healthcare workers educated in voice disorders and hearing loss became glaringly obvious. Those experiences coupled with the inequality of health care treatment as an indigent fueled her convictions. Danielle is also a proud advocate for the dignity of Native American rights in the U.S.A. (sparked by her time with the Pima and her family tree) and animal adoption and prevention of animal cruelty (she adopted several pets from local kill shelters). Before her health floundered in 2016, Danielle founded Delightfully Divine, teaching intuition classes and on life before birth in Arizona, supplementing her performances as a singer-songwriter, and as a contractor for the U.S. Army. She divulged the belief that intuitive gifts are divine gifts from God and something for people to embrace so long as they serve for the better good of mankind, hence the name Delightfully Divine. This aspect of her was partially hidden until she unveiled it with her return to Texas where she sought to pay it forward by volunteering as a psychic detective aiding Texas detectives to solve cold cases. Her health may have thwarted her desire to rally as an international ambassador of peace and positive change with other international organizations, however; Danielle is committed to serving the world in multifaceted capacities as best she can from where she currently resides.

Countries & Languages

Danielle has visited or lived in a host of countries and territories, twenty-seven in full, including: Austria, Bahamas, Belgium, Belize, China, Choctaw Nation, England, France, Germany, Grand Caymans, Greece, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Lichtenstein, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Palestine, Pima Nation, Puerto Rico, Scotland, Switzerland, Taiwan, USA, and Vatican City.

Danielle is also a fervent polyglot and culture enthusiast—to the extent of teaching herself French in high school and American Sign Language when she lost her voice. Her love of linguistics fed her inclination to learn the following: English (native), French (fluent), American Sign Language (fluent), and some German, Spanish, Mandarin, and Hebrew.

Marriage

In 2009 Danielle married and thereupon divorced in 2011, less than two years after enduring constant abuse and managing to escape with her life.

Children

Her Ladyship suffered a miscarriage in 2010 on her second attempt to escape her ex-husband. She lovingly refers to her miscarried baby as Anna Leilani Seraphine or “Annie”. In 2021, Danielle conceived despite doctors informing her that she was unlikely to become pregnant. She gave birth to her daughter Geneviéve Gianina Lèonie Mirae Bienvenu of Estons on 5 September 2022. Geneviéve is the first and only heir to the Ladyship of Estons.

Religion

Danielle is known to quote James 1:17, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights.” “I know what my life’s purpose is,” Danielle says, “It’s to show God’s love. If I can help one person, it’s all worth it.” Danielle uses the message of love and hope in her writing, music, and advocacy.

Title

Danielle became legally known as the Lady of Estons in 2014 (alternatively written as Eston) at the age of twenty-seven years old while living in England. Although her life in England was brief, she considers it her second home. Her title Ladyship of Estons derives from Biggleswade with Stratton and Holme Parish in Bedfordshire, England. Lady Danielle's predecessor was Sir Erasmus de la Fontaine. Lady Danielle is descended from a branch of the Fontaine family on her paternal side. The title also holds historical connections to King Edward VI and King Henry VIII, relations on her maternal side. Lady Danielle is the tenth person to hold the title.

I've been married for 25 years to an Army officer who retired last year about 38 years of service. Six months ago I fell and broke both of my arms. My husband was still doing retirement things and I was alone in a new, empty house for a week, no groceries, no help. I cried every night but I made it. I'm a survivor. Now I am representing Alabama in a senior women's pageant. As for family history, I am a big believer that we need to learn about our ancestors and pass that knowledge to others. Solving the mystery of one of my ancestors and finding a long, interesting history something I am excited about. At least one Royalist was an ancestor, with a long family tree in Herefordshire, while others went to London and apprenticed and joined guilds, and a few came to the Virginia Colony during the 17th century, eventually resulting in me!

Genealogy, cats, traveling, swimming, boating, Royal/British history, American Civil War, midcentury architecture, tea rooms, lighthouses.
