TV, Movies, and culture in general sometimes paints a narrow, specific image of what success is, but we know from our conversations with some of the best and brightest that success can mean vastly different things to different people.

I used to think and look at success as how much I would make, the things I could have, and the title of my career; you know let’s not leave out what other peoples opinions of that were too. Noooo, that was ridiculous! As I have gotten older and wiser 😉 I have realized that none of that is the core character of success for me. I continue to educate myself on this matter through books, mentors, and life lessons as it is always evolving. Knowing that the moment you think you have it all figured out, you are the wisest, and have reached the peak of success… is the moment you have actually failed. I think all the hardships, upsets, the WHY me’s are our true success. I can guarantee they have helped me along every path and next decision in my life. In the moment are we grateful for those?? Of course not, but I have never looked back and wasn’t thankful for where the Universe has placed me now. Read more>>

In turn, I use this fuel to try to think and act in ways that inspire others, particularly other female leaders and women that are up-and-coming in their careers. Read more>>

Success to me is how many people you can help, how many people’s lives you can positively impact, being able to leave a meaningful mark on the world and the people you’ve encountered along the way. Never missing an opportunity to be a blessing to someone in need. Raising children that don’t have to heal from their childhood. Having an abundance of gratitude, achieving inner peace and being healthy, mind, body and spirit. Read more>>
