I want to start by telling you how sorry I am that your mom was unable to realize her dream Tuesday night to become the first woman in our nation to become the president of the United States. As millions of women, I am shocked, saddened and dismayed by the outcome of the election but I thought I would take the time to tell you that as your mom’s daughter, the fight will never end. It has only just begun.
I had an epiphany last night while watching Chelsea Clinton deliver a heartfelt introductory speech about her mom, Hillary Rodham Clinton. As the child of a working mother who took on various roles in her career as an eductor from the time I was five until adulthood, I started to really think about Chelsea’s personal stories about her mom and how they seemed to parallel my own life.

Truth be told – my husband and I have not had a romantic weekend without our kids in a very long time. Between work, our kids, school, finances and our dog, we don’t get much anymore. So when the PR team from the Carlton offered me the chance to take my hubby with me for a special night out on the town, I jumped at the chance.
In the last of three twitter chats, serial entrepreneur and Avon ambassador Jen Groover shared her insights on how to achieve professional fulfillment in your career. One thing that rang true for me was that the only way to truly find fulfillment in your career was to do what you love and not get bogged down by minutia. Lately, that’s what I have been experiencing in my business and every time I let a tough client get to me, I wind up questioning why I decided to pursue a career in public relations.
This past week, I participated in the second of three lunchtime twitter chats with serial entrepreneur and author, Jen Groover. Jen is the creator of the wildly successful Butler Bag and is a motivational speaker who works closely with Avon to inspire small business owners to pursue their passion no matter the obstacles.
