Introducing myself and my journal: Woman on Fire

About Me:
Born in Ohio, I am a former journalist, political press secretary and television production company executive. Only when I became for others what I had wanted for myself did I begin to live my life's purpose. For the past 14 years I've coached women to express their greatest gifts to the world.
Five years ago, in an effort to bring together all the fabulous women I'd coached, I started the Women on Fire organization. Today, more than 1,000 amazing women are connected to each other through tea parties, coaching groups and a newsletter called The Spark!
Our first book also has been published -- Women on Fire: 20 Inspiring Women Share Their Life Secrets (and Save You Years of Struggle!) and our first hour-long DVD called "Inspire Me!" has been released.
My dream is that every woman in the world with a dream has access to the inspiration, strategies and support she needs to make it happen. And, that everywhere in the world women gather to support each other's dreams.
Our websites are: and
I look so forward to knowing about you!

My Passions:
Women's success, my husband, all my "spiritual daughters," our cat Wilber, living on Martha's Vineyard, nature

My Challenges:
Getting "it" all done!

My Vision for the Future:
Women having the inspiration, strategies and support to live the lives they dream of

My Areas of Expertise:
Connecting people, recognizing the gifts in others, coaching women to success

With your background, I know that you will have much to offer to our community and I look forward to reading more about your dreams, ideas and vision. We have members from 145 countries represented here, some using the internet for the first time. Your writing and journalism background will be so perfect for bringing some of the members' journal entries to life by asking the right questions and encouraging those with interesting stories to continue posting.

I know that you will be able to transform lives as you share your knowledge and ideas with the community, drawing the members' hopes and dreams to the surface. Here, one can never speak too loudly or say too much. Each member's words ring out and bring ideas to life. You can empower others who have been hesitant to speak and show them that indeed, together we can create a future where anything could be possible. Again, welcome and thank you for joining PulseWire.
