“Saying Yes One More Time”

The focus of this chapter is on how to blend active community involvement with entrepreneurship to reach levels of achievement that I never expected to reach. I started my own business to enable me to have a flexible work schedule that allowed me to spend time with my family and the opportunity to continue my involvement in volunteer organizations that give back to my community. Taking on leadership positions in a variety of organizations has strengthened my business and satisfied my thirst to be a leader by just saying”yes” to new opportunities to make this a better world for everyone.

Thirty years have passed quickly since establishing a profitable student housing rental company with my wonderful husband and two sons. This expanded into a management company with our oldest son to ultimately take over the reins leaving me time to ponder my place in the scheme of our planet. My desire to help and inspire other women who  have also put their personal dreams on the back burner was the leading force changing the direction of my own life. To that end…or beginning, I took a leap of faith and became an accredited life coach, timeline therapist and hypnotherapist in my mid 50’s. Now I’m able to do what I’ve always dreamed of doing! That is encouraging others to overcome their personal obstacles and to find their true value with coaching and women’s empowerment seminars.

I’m passionate to feed the often repressed hunger of my “sisters of the heart” struggling to make their own changes however big or small.

Late Bloomer

There was a time I believed that my most magical days were behind me. A deeper, more insistent part argued that I had much to offer. My journey, inspired by the wonderful women who’ve led the way grounded me with the fortitude to push on. This story (our story) shows how we wonderful, feminine souls band together, connecting our pearls of wisdom as each of us strive to become what we’re meant to be.

Journey to Happiness

It takes a baby a long time to walk, and in a similar way, it takes an adult a long time to learn to first hear, then to follow and surrender to the beat of her own drums.

This is a story of traversing the deep dark forests of lost meaning to find my own inner clearings; it is my journey back home, back to my true self, hidden under so many heavy layers.

Choices

The choices we make shape our lives, and we have to live with them, whatever they may be. My story takes us through the day I was kidnapped and how I escaped. What choices I made in my life got me to that day as well as the choices that I have made for a successful recovery.
