I HAVE MADE A LOT OF NEW FRIENDS AND WRITE FOR WORLDPULSE. I get to share with others over the internet then help people I meet do the same by getting connected.
The latest success I now have is I started my own business thanks to the digital commmunity and Worldpulse. I just recieved my business license to start my own newspaper. I have attached a copy of the license.This news paper will include local issues and world issues. I hope it will open doors for others and I will keep information flowing.
I now have digital cameras and I am learning to send photos on line which will add to my newspaper as well.
I always talk about worldpulse to others and when I travel which is every month, now more women now are interested in joining the worldpulse community.
I look forward to learning more and my world is expanding thanks to all of this.

Nice One Diane............

So glad I came across your brief but loaded post. Congratulation on your receiving your business license to start your own Newspaper. What a great achievement. I celebrate you and wish you the very best as you develop the Newspaper. I am not in the least surprised that you mentioned World pulse as a digital platform that contributed to your achieving such a great feat.

World Pulse is certainly an online community to be and invite others to be a part of. Please keep us posted about your Newspaper.

Super cool!

Hi Diane!
I loved reading your post because it's an example of how World Pulse can have a huge impact on women all over the world. I looked at the license for your newspaper - Without Prejudice News is a great name! Will you be putting in mostly online? I look forward to taking a look at it. I think it's great you want to include both local and world news. I love reading both and it's great it'll be in the same paper. I wish you the very best with it and I look forward to reading future posts of yours on here.

Thank you for sharing, and best wishes,

That is great news

Dear Diane,
You are an inspiration to many grass root women. It is great news that you have a newspaper because this will surely make information flow more easy and more accessible to may women. Continue to spread the word so that more women can join this platform and have their voices heard. Continue with the good word and stay blessed my dear.

Dear Diane,

Congratulations on your newest venture! Really curious and looking forward to all the opportunities
that may spring from your endeavors. Your post reminded me of a famous quote I once heard:
"There are things that are known and things that are unknown... And in between there are doors."
And if a door doesn't open, go take a ram and badger it! :)
