Oprah is leaving next week and I am sad! She has been a huge part of my life especially during the time when I transitioned from being a retail business owner, to a professional speaker. I remember back in my early days of speaking, when I worked alone in my home office, anxiously waiting for 4:00 PM because that was when Oprah came on. I couldn’t afford a therapist back then, but she was there, always helping me get my head straight with her Cheryl Richardson type guests and her unique Oprah-wisdom. She always had the right things to say to move me into action and out of my funk. Continue reading

From 1980-1999 I was a fashion retailer in Houston, Texas. Ten years ago, I decided to write a book about women, success, and what I had seen behind the dressing room doors. I hosted a runway show at the Houston Junior League called Seven Women on the Runway. This was the beginning of the book idea and that interactive event married my love of fashion with my passion entertaining and celebrating women; in this case by showcasing “real women on the runway.” My daughter , Meredith, introduced her that night, and even joined the models on the catwalk. As the book began to develop ,Meredith helped me organize my thoughts and very soon after took the lead and became co-author of The Seven Women Project. Continue reading
