We all need inspiration! It really helped our participants at the May 6th NYU workshop to hear the stories of our role models – the women who have overcome huge obstacles, who DARED to find a new path, and follow their dreams. It certainly has always helped me in my life!
I’d like to share with you the story of Carol Hoenig, one of our panelists at the workshop – I absolutely adore her! This dynamic post-50 publishing consultant and writer had her job eliminated, suddenly, and although for years her friends and peers had suggested over and over that she leave and start her own business, fear had always stopped her. Newly divorced, and having just purchased a home, it was the loss of her job that pushed her into a new life. Instead of hitting the pavement with her resume, she went freelance. She pushed through the fear, believed in herself, and reinvented and booted her life on many levels. She tripled her income, and out of fear and adversity created something even bigger and much more fulfilling!
Yay, Carol! And Yay, you when you DARE to do the same!!
