Help Me Use My Super Power

Ever since I wrote about Finding Your Super Power, I’ve been itching to use mine in a larger capacity.  As a refresher, my super power is… Challenging women to break stereotypes and achieve their dreams. So what can I do to help YOU break through stereotypes and achieve your dreams?  This is not a rhetorical…

Bonnie Richardson Wins Track Team Championship By Herself

Recently, I posted about how sometimes you can’t rely on the “team” to get to your goals, but I also know that my band wouldn’t be where we are today if we didn’t act as a team.  Now here is a girl that plays a team sport – without teammates!  Bonnie Richardson of Rochelle, Texas…

She Earned That Title So Please Call Her Senator Boxer

I have to agree with Senator Boxer on this one.  She did work hard to earn that title and she deserves to be called “Senator Boxer”.  If she were a medical doctor, I think she should be called “Doctor Boxer”.  If a person works their butt off to earn a prestigious title, then they have…

What does society say you can’t do?

OK – so I usually steer clear of political and religious topics on here to avoid igniting flame wars, but this speech by Sarah Palin is extroardinary.  Not because it’s pro-life, not because she’s Sarah Palin, but because of what she says at about 2:40. “We went through some things a year ago that…
