What is required to be a successful woman entrepreneur? Hernan Cortez, was a Spanish conquistador who in burned the ships that brought his 600 men to the shores of Mexico for battle. He did not want them to have any retreat and to fight as such. I see it all the time, women who are “in” business but not “all in” business. They are still considering retreat. This is like having a conversation at a party with someone who is looking past you to see if someone more interesting is around. You can tell they are not fully engaged in the situation they are in.
Are you energized to get into your day when you wake up in the morning? Do you feel fulfilled? Are you living you best possible life? If not, it might be time to light a fire and reignite your passion.
Every day, every moment you have a choice, a choice to be passionate or ambivalent in your life. You are responsible for making sure you are served up a full helping of passion in life. Only you can figure out what you are passionate about and only you can decide what will reignite it.
When you are passionate about your life problems are seen as possibilities, obstacles as opportunities to learn and grow. The only thing standing between you and a life filled with overflowing passion is you.

We each carry a flame that we either feed or let die out. So when I found myself trudging through life as a whimpering, gasping flicker, without a breeze fanning my embers and no wind beneath my wings, I knew it was time for deliberate measures.
After being widowed at thirty-six, I tackled the daunting task of finding new inspiration in my life, while raising four small children from the ages of two through nine alone. That’s when I made the heavenly 911 call for a little CPR that breathed life back into the dry places and led me on a journey to a passionate, joy filled life. Through this process I became an expert in the art of innovation, repurposing my life and making inspired living a life style. Now I help other women connect to the inspiration to do the same.
