“Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.” ~Golda Meir
I was pondering as to who I should pick as a woman that I would want to emulate or speak about this month; Women’s History Month. Then I realized that every woman has a story to tell. I have met so many remarkable women, not only working in this new category of Women’s health, but in my past, personal, and business life that I believe has made a difference.
As I speak with women all over the country, they have their own stories to share with me. That’s when I realized that I too have a story to share; that I believe made me the strong and creative person I am today.
I grew up in the 1960’s; in the midst of the social revolution. Burn the bra, equality for women, Helen Gurly Brown. I got married when I was 18, right out of high school. I was a stay at home Mom until my youngest was about 4 years old when I went back to work. My last job, working for a cosmetic manufacturing company, was the job that changed my life forever.
