How do we gracefully integrate an infinite cosmic soul into a limited human body?
Where do we belong when we're "too much" for this group, but "not enough" for that group?
How do we express our originality in the sea of oneness?

Drink in what these women liberators, founders, overachievers and trailblazers have to say!

First moment of enlightenment

In 1998 Oprah had been promoting the movie ‘Beloved’ in a live television interview with the late film critic Gene Siskel and he asked her to tell him what she knew for sure.

Oprah has been asked a lot of questions over the years and not often is she at a complete loss for words, but she was stopped in her tracks. This then became the central question of her life. For me it was a complete change on how I viewed life. 'There isn't a rainbow without rain' is what Oprah gets across in every message that she shares.

F*ck this shit moment

I was a in job that wasn't serving me on any level. I was unhappy. I was not working in my zone of genius, I felt I had nothing to give to the role. I could not connect to the others in the office. I dreaded the alarm clock. Things had gotten pretty bad! 

I was at my desk one morning and remember seeing the Gloria Vanderbilt quote, "I believe one woman's success can only help another woman's success." I got my coat and walked out and never returned. 

One of the hardest moments of her life?

My phone rang a few times at 1:00am, eventually waking me up. I received a phone call from the resort manager, explaining that there had been a bomb attack on Sharm El Sheik and one of our hotels, The Gazala Gardens, had been targeted. As the only manager in resort, I was required to contact the UK duty office and open an incident control room.

It was all so surreal. A suicide bomber had driven his car through the glass reception doors into the lobby and bar and then detonated a bomb killing himself and guests of the hotel. I remember bright lights, bodies, glass but feeling very focused and calm with a huge sense of purpose to make sure everyone was OK. The fight aspect of fight or flight I suppose.

First moment of enlightenment

When I was living in India I visited Varanasi and had an experience that went right to the core of me. I was watching a burning funeral pyre on the Ganges and a group of women were washing their clothes on the ghats. I was deeply moved by the holy right next to the ordinary.

Ha! This happens daily with a 3 and 5-year-old! For someone who craves quiet, the chaos of two little ones can be overwhelming. This need for peace inspired "Peanut Butter Spoons" (there is no noise while eating PB off a spoon!) and hide-and-seek games where I hide in the closet peacefully for 10 minutes. You do what you gotta do to get the peace you gotta get!

One of the Hardest Moments of Her Life

Getting divorced. My deep hope and vision for family were the strongest of all my dreams. Choosing to dismantle them, the family and the dream, in favor of a future I couldn't even yet articulate, was gut-wrenching and heart-breaking. This is not something you overcome. This kind of loss takes up residence in your heart. So you rent a room to grief. Then, over time, you rent more and more rooms to your new life vision. And in that way, you become inspired to create anew.

There is an art and a science to non-conformity... as well as a price... and many, many, many rewards... and multiple soul wrenching trade-offs along the way. It's an intricate (aka neurotic) dance. Freedom is the dream. But freedom isn't for sissies.

One of the Hardest Moments of Her Life

Truthfully, my divorce. It was a two-year unraveling that had begun 10 years earlier. Looking back, I can now see how poor of a match we were. However, I think we all give our all to relationships. So, at one point, I thought it was a failure. But now, I see it as a stepping stone – to becoming a better me and a better partner.

One of the Hardest Moments of Her Life

For over five years, the company that my life partner, Robin, and I ran was struggling to the point where we were laying off folks left and right and unable to meet payroll for those who were left. Robin and I were not paying ourselves, in order to do what we could for our remaining employees. We had creditors after us, personally and in the business. Employees were stressed out, tension was high. And if our landlord had decided to evict us from our home, we didn't have the money to move out. It was very grim. [...]

Is this bliss? It this total liberation? After 110 countries, you'll know it's both.

I currently have a lawsuit but have never felt like I was going to fight it to that point. Instead, I have had a change of direction and am currently looking into visas in Ireland! It is time to turn a page and know when enough is enough.

All I had to do was trust, and then speak my truth, and then walk away.

When we daydreamed about, stumbled upon or leapt into entrepreneurship, never did we ever declare, "When I grow up, I want to be sooooo busy that I end up in the hospital!"

Yet, in our fast paced, comparison prone culture, as we attempt to navigate business, we often get swept up by busyness, the illusion that if we just do more (even if it's random and unnecessary), we will be worth more... in the eyes of others.

This lesson guides founders, overachievers, trailblazers and entrepreneurs on:

  • how to shift your relationship with time and
  • how to set your business up for success by creating more free time.
