I Want To Have It All Too!

Sunny Chayes

Sunny Chayes is an artist, radio show host, musician, art gallery owner, costume and clothing designer whose designs were worn to The Oscars, Emmys Grammys and Buckingham Palace.

Sunny Chayes was born into two prominent Chicago families. The Shapiro’s were celebrated in the world of art, politics, law and philanthropy. The Chayes family was extremely accomplished as well as influential in politics, environmentalism, music, law and world activism. As a young girl, Sunny was inspired by these larger than life people. The echoes of their legacy are found in her desire to make a difference in any way she can, continuing the spirit of these two great families.

Life’s education continued for the teenage Sunny in Maseru, Lesotho- Southern Africa where she found her passion for the stage performing in professional musicals. She was profoundly influenced and forever changed by being one of ten “Europeans” living in a small nation of “Africans”. A life altering experience never to be forgotten and always to be cherished. She then lived in Johannesburg where she studied with the top choreographers, vocal coaches, art masters and philosophers as well as winning awards in design and art.

Upon returning to The States, Sunny received her BFA from UCLA while continuing to perform in musical venues. Immediately after graduation she launched into designing costumes for film, television, music videos, commercials and theater. This led to creating a children’s clothing line sold to high end retailers domestically and abroad including; Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus and Harrod’s. Lots of gorgeous cherubs stepped out in “Sunny Chayes Designs” including Nicki and Paris Hilton.

Sunny had a cherub of her own. Husband, wife and child journeyed to Santa Fe where they owned and ran an art gallery. The gallery shared land with the Dalai Lama’s “peeps”. A true honor to wave and chat when His Holiness would “pop by” for a visit! Living in The Land of Enchantment created abundant opportunities to interact with international visitors and multicultural ways, including a number of Native American tribes.

Moving back to L.A. Sunny created an elite women’s clothing collection exported to Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Europe, Mexico, Australia and Canada as well as stores in The States. “Chayes Designs” were worn to The Oscars, The Emmys, The Grammys, Buckingham Palace and eight Presidential Inaugurals.

All the while, Sunny continued her studies with wonderful sages and performing at events intended to inspire and uplift. At one of these events, she had the great honor of meeting Dr. Arun Gandhi, the youngest grandson of Mahatma Gandhi. They discussed how Sunny could really make a difference. The “If They Can Do It, You Know You Can” Peace Conference which was held In the Spring of 2007 came out of this meeting. Leaders of organizations gathered under Sunny’s roof to share local food, Marin wine, stunning live musical performances and inspirational speakers on a host of subjects. Agreements were made to work together for the greater good. A DVD was produced and distributed of the event which inspired others to create similar gatherings internationally. The love continues to grow with annual peace conferences, as well as political and environmental events as well as guest appearances on radio and t.v. shows.

Sunny’s newest love is her radio show “Singin’ in the Rain”-The Power of One, where she has the honor of chatting with writers, directors, advocates of peace, enlightened politicians, world class musicians and spiritual sages of all kinds from around the world. The intention of the show is to enlighten, inspire and call us all to participate. With humor, song, wisdom and knowledge, Sunny’s guests deliver significant topics with a perspective of hope and action steps we can all take. Stay tuned for more.....the day is young.

Her greatest love is being a mom to her two sons, Palmer and Chandler. www.ubnradio.com/sunnychayes

Having it all is not about striving for perfection, or about living our lives according to someone else’s standards or expectations (we’ve done that for far too long).

It’s not about working ourselves to a state of exhaustion, spreading ourselves too thin, or trading inner peace and contentment for outer trinkets of success.

Been there. Done that too.

Having it all simply means having access to all of yourself, in any moment you choose it, and in every aspect of life that is important to you.

Learn exactly how you can “Have it All Too”

Right at this moment, no matter how you are feeling, no matter how in debt you might be, no matter how old you are or how much you weigh, and no matter what the condition of your relationships might be, you have the power to re-create yourself and your life exactly the way you desire it to be – and quite frankly, the way you deserve it to be.

Regardless of how big a gap exists between what you want and what you currently have, within you is the ability to effortlessly and joyfully bridge that gap in virtually every aspect of your life.

You can have it all, how you define it, how you want it. You do have the power to create it.
