If Barbara Walter’s and so many others can have their countless list(s) of fascinating folks and trend watchers — why shouldn’t I?
Each day I encounter amazing women doing the darn thing (going hard), some with recognition and others about to B-L-O-W-U-P.
With that in mind, I compiled a list of fascinating women (not all BNM) who have truly reinvented the odds to succeed.
All the women mentioned have a common thread – they have turned loss and defeat into success. To these women I say B-R-A-V-A!
As we continue to renew and redefine our personal brand in 2011, remember, don’t just look at the success scorecard – take a close look at the struggle, story, and countless disappointment(s) — that’s the story for motivation. *Please check out these fantastic ladies and spread the word.
