I have always considered life an adventure, the good, the bad and the ugly. I’m a big believer that who we become is a result of what we believe, our experiences and how we respond. I have learned that expectations are a waste of time, and a positive attitude gets you a lot further in life. Nothing good ever comes from negativity.
When I was 17 years old, I found myself living on my own. I quickly learned that hard work, being kind to others, and building a network of good people was invaluable. I came to know some of the most influential people in my life during that time. It set the stage for my future success.
I have been, and in some areas continue to be, a business owner, CEO, speaker, author and columnist. Throughout my life, I have always done my best to stay committed to helping others, being a positive role model, and a champion for women looking for their voice.
I am an avid runner, chronically curious, visionary, problem solver, passionate cook, lover of great food, wife, mother and grandmother. I believe there are more good people on this planet than bad, and I choose to focus on that. Life can be tough and challenges inevitable. I know only too well, it’s not what happens to you, it’s how you respond.
I’ve decided to bring back my blog because I feel like after almost 60 years, I have a few things to say. I will cover life experiences, learning lessons and thoughts on our natural ability to lead and impact others. I hope the topics warrant your engagement, as I believe we all have something to say! My joy not only comes from writing, but learning from you!
No matter your age, no matter your obstacles, there are people willing to lift you up and help you succeed. We need to surround ourselves with those people! I believe we are on this earth to help one another, so let’s do it!
Here’s to never wishing for more time, rather making the most of it!
