*Are you happy at the moment?
Yes, I am. I’ve raised two amazing sons, who I raised single-handedly following the sudden death of my husband on Super Bowl Sunday 2002. I’m now building the business of my dreams.
*If you could go back and say anything to your 16-year-old self now – what would it be?
Be happy with your body, you’ll wish for it to be that size in thirty years. Don’t play small, so that others can feel big.
*What’s the most important thing you’ve learned this year?
I have a gift for inspiring Moms to live their fullest lives and have learned how to build a business around that gift.
*What do you most want to achieve in the next 12 months?
To see my business skyrocket – in visibility and profitability. To be in a position to empower many women to pursue their dreams, while still being great Moms.
*What’s your secret to happiness?
Family and peace of mind. I love spending time with family. I’m also committed to existing in a no-drama, no stress zone. I choose wisely, whom I allow into my personal space.
*What one ritual or practice keeps you grounded?
The spa experience, especially hot stone massages and the smell of lavender. I strive to make this a monthly self-care treat.
*What’s your biggest regret?
Failing to be more proactive in my mother’s health care. Sadly, she passed away in a hospital that was recently rated the worst in its geographic area.
*What’s the most important lesson you’ve taught your kid(s)?
When it came to academics- “Good, better, best: never let them rest until the good is better and the better is best.”
*What bad habit would you most like to change about yourself?
Routinely giving people the benefit of the doubt, without requiring them to demonstrate that they’re worthy of such.
*Aside from motherhood/fatherhood and marriage what are you most proud of in your life?
Within this past year, I launched my company, authored and co-authored two bestselling books, hosted a weekly radio show and was featured on the front page of my local newspaper.
*When were you happiest?
Now. One son out of college, working at his dream company, another in college, soon to be a published author and I’ve been given a 2nd chance at love.
*What ten words best describe you?
Determined, Passionate, Imperfect, Driven, Sarcastic, Caring, Entrepreneurial, Competitive, Humorous, Confident
