If you wish to know if I have any credibility at all to talk about personal development, you are looking in the wrong place. That’s found in the Professional Background tab and includes my educational background and what I have done professionally. This 1st person bio is written for those who want an inside look at me, the person. Frankly whenever I am asked for a resume so that one can introduce me to an audience, I offer very few details, because what is important is not about what I have done for previous audiences, but rather what I will do with and for the audience seated before me.
My biggest claim to fame is that I am the mother of five children born within seven years of one another, and a grandmother of 12. Some of my children and grandchildren are in the photo above as we crowded into an elevator of my new residence. According to me, I was a great mom. According to them, well… you may wish to check out their blogs as they likely tell the story differently. But all would agree, they grew up in an entrepreneurial home characterized by much activity and lively discussions. I have four daughters-in-law, no two the same, and each one is great with me. I consider myself blessed.
While I appear to have it all together to most observers, I am a bunch of contradictions. I laugh out loud and smile easily and yet there is a sadness deep inside that will never go away. I am smart and yet I have no idea about how some simple things work. I have traveled extensively but I have a poor sense of geography and aneven worse sense of direction. I under-utilize every piece of electronic equipment I own and yet continue to purchase the latest and greatest. I pride myself on being a strong tennis player and yet once ran for a ball I should have left for my partner, and ended up with a racket in my face, and a very ugly bruise. I am generally on the go, wound up, with lots of people around…and then around 3:00 pm each day, I look forward to the quiet as write, read, or play Words with Friends on my IPad. I feel as though I have accomplished a lot in my 72 years on this earth, however I am plagued by the feeling that I have so much more to do. What I have not accomplished is more important to me today than what I have already done.
My mission is simple: I want to motivate women to be their very best, to have a high level of Successtrogen. We women are different from one another yet we all want to be happy and feel good ourselves and the world in which we live. Our journey together is about to begin. Through everyday experiences, let’s identify the things that keep our SUCCESSTROGEN level high.
