How I Want to Participate in PowerHouse
Bring out potential in others
What motivates and inspires you?
The “ah-ha” moments and progress made (for others or self)
Who are your personal ‘Sheroes’/Female Role-Models?
Who doesn’t love the strength of Wonder Woman? Eleanor Roosevelt, Oprah, Maya Angelou
What technology/literature/art/seminars/ideas do you love, and recommend to others?
Read Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, Three Feet from Gold, and What I Know For Sure. Watch Steve Jobs’ inspirational commercial: Think Different, the movie: Dead’s Poet Society, and the video: ESPN’s Dream On. Travel abroad to expand your worldview. Look deep into a Mark Rothko painting and just breathe for a moment. Find YOUR sources of inspiration.
How do you reboot?
A massage, a walk, a new book with new ideas, cleaning and organizing, roadtrips and travel, conversations with my respected circle over good food/drinks, and time with family for re-grounding.
What is your biggest accomplishment, so far?
Starting and building my business, Ignite by Design.
What is the biggest career risk you’ve ever taken?
Choosing to walk away from a huge business opportunity with a dream salary, to purposefully turn my life upside-down, and pursue my true passions.
What is the ‘lasting legacy’ you hope to leave?
I hope to impact others in way that brings out their potential and infuses them with their own purpose and drive to be authentically fulfilled.
Words of wisdom you want to share with Montanan women?
Just START. Take one little step in the direction you wish to go and keep moving forward. Never take your eye off the ball. You’ve got this. CARPE DIEM!
