“The older I get, the greater power I seem to have to help the world; I am like a snowball — the further I am rolled the more I gain.”

– Susan B. Anthony

February 15, 1820 -March 13, 1906

In my twenties, I didn’t have very many opinions I was willing to share openly.

In my thirties I shared my opinions with my friends and associates.

In my forties I openly sought women to share our opinions and discuss the the challenges we were facing.

By the time I turned 50, I had been speaking professionally for ten years and imparted my hard earned wisdom to my audiences.

Now that I am in my 60’s it is difficult for me to hold my tongue. I have become so secure in the knowledge I have acquired, I want others to skip some of the laborious steps I had to maneuver through to finally find the peace and comfort in my life.

I speak all over the world to audiences that range from college students to seniors and from young mothers to seasoned entrepreneurs. There always seems to be a common theme: everyone is looking for answers on how to live their live with more purpose and less stress.

When I look back towards the famous icons who lead the way for the rest of us women to comfortably carve our own future.
