Love yourself. You are here for such a short time… learn, love, laugh and at least like/love the person staring back at you in the mirror.
What you do matters. Whether you are a CEO or a stay at home mom, what you do is significant. Even if no one sees it, even if it’s not splashy or sexy, it adds value and makes a difference to those in your family, your work, your life. It’s an opportunity to act with excellence, love and humility.

Magic happens when you show up. Do something every day that moves your goals/passions/life forward. It doesn’t mean it won’t be without the absence of fear. It means you step out with whatever strength you have and believe it’s possible.
The future is female! Be yourself, find your voice and put it to action. Oh, and write thank you notes!
Writing can be a lonely profession. I am fortunate to run with a small wolf pack of women who never fail to keep me motivated, calm me down and make me laugh.
I think more often than not fear holds us back from really extraordinary things. Once you let go of the fear and know that you might make mistakes but they will continue to lead you to something even better, it gets easier to challenge yourself and keep going.

We all have insecurities. And sometimes they get the best of us! But I try to step back and reflect on all that we have to be grateful for.
I believe that money gives women voices and choices. And I’ve also noticed that when women are living from a place of financial knowledge and empowerment they not only improve their own lives but those of their family and their broader community around them.
