Change your life, change the world…

It can be devastating to reach a time in your life when you are hungering for something more—and yet unable to name it or find a way to it. And yet, think about this: “The Dalai Lama recently said, ‘The world will be saved by the western woman.’” He believes that we, as women of the western world, are going to be leaders in a movement towards a greater humanity. And he believes that because of the passion and caring commitment he’s seeing so many of us women putting out. Maybe that hunger inside you is your gentle call to play your part…

If you need a big shot of belief about this, check out this website: Women Living on the Verge of Evolution. And then if you want to really immerse yourself in this exciting tribute to expanding possibilities, you can attend  an inspiring and empowering conference coming up in two weeks. It’ll be held in Las Vegas—not a bad place for a long weekend of inspiration—on September 16 to 18 at the Alexis Park Resort Hotel. There’s a special price going on now only until Friday evening—visit the website for details.

I’ve attended some of the telesummit conferences that have been going on for the past 18 weeks, and let me tell you, there are some amazing women giving presentations at this conference. And I know the woman who’s masterminding this—she’s full of grace and wisdom and energy and is on a mission to share all these resources with you.

You can usually find a cheap flight to Vegas—if you feel drawn to this, I’m confident you’ll be amply rewarded for investing the time and the bucks.

Women of substance


Sometimes we women forget how incredible we are. It's easy to do when you're caught in the dailiness of life's obligations.

Today some women with a mission provided a chance for other women to come and enjoy each others' company, learn some great tips on improving our financial savvy, and eat some lovely food in lovely surroundings.

After the panel discussion on women's financial empowerment–ably and passionately facilitated by Vikki Pryor, the CEO of S.USA, our host company–I had an opportunity to hear stories of how some women make sure they find the time outside their careers to make a difference in the lives of school-age children. How they regularly give of their expertise and their creativity to help change the dynamics for kids–help them "get" lessons that make it more likely they'll be able to access opportunities out there. Talk, for example, about dress styles and attitudes that can hamper a young person's chances in the job market. Bring inspiring speakers who can also help kids identify–people who started out with nothing and grew up to be successful and confident members of society.

Robin, Cheryl and Chester, thanks for your stories. Vikki and crew, thank you for a brief but powerful interlude of inspiration.
