If it weren’t for the kindness of one old man at a Burger Heaven many years ago, I might never have had the courage to start my own business. It was a very scary and exciting time in my life. I left my high paying corporate job to start my own business in my living room.
Most people thought I was out of my mind to leave the security of a great job (with a son to support and parents in need), but I went with my feeling anyway. Besides I did think that someone “upstairs” was watching over me and telling me to take a chance. In order to win BIG, you have to risk BIG. Walking away from that fancy corporate job was the best decision I’ve ever made.
Dianna Huff, my dear Twitter friend, contacted me recently to tell me she was compiling an e-book featuring 23 stories of women (including me) who have gone after their dreams. The book was created to inspire women to overcome obstacles and fears in order to live their best lives.
These extraordinary women are from all walks of life including accomplished entrepreneurs to a triathlon participant who experienced a debilitating accident. The commonality among these women is that they said “Yes” to dreaming big.
All of the proceeds from her book will be donated to the Girls Fight Back foundation. GFB provides personal safety and self-protection education to women and girls across the world.
Please support my friend Dianna and the Girls Fight Back foundation. To purchase the book, please visit her site: profitablefemaleconsultant.com
It will be the beginning of good karma for you too, as this has been a labor of love. To learn more about the extraordinary women featured in this book, please visit them on their websites linked below:
