Despite all of their differences, these women do have a few things in common – they are all passionate, determined and committed to turning their ideas into a reality, building successful businesses and living a life they dream of and really Love what they do. I hope their stories inspire you and leave you feeling fired up, ready to achieve incredible things!
Finally, my message to all women is to give back to society. Work on your relationship with yourself. Keep mental and physical space for you to regularly think, plan, and dream. Learn how to have different kinds of dreams whether they’re now or later. At the end of the day, keep your sense of humor! Do something you love, passionate about and good at; if you love what you do, it won’t feel like ‘work.’ Emotional drive will sustain your enterprise.
