My husband, Mark and me celebrating on July 4th at our lake home.

Summer is very special for me because my husband and I live in Michigan where the summers are very short and gorgeous, with long, hot days and cool nights.

We love sharing our home with our friends and family and are so grateful to have found a little piece of paradise.  I still remember the day that I decided I wanted to live on the lake and be surrounded by water.

At the time, we were told that a lake house was out of our range. Besides, our money was all tied up in real estate up north and the house we were living in had no equity. We were told to “just forget it” by my real estate friend.

This was 20 years ago, and I was reading a book on “The Law of Attraction”. When I shared my dream with my husband, Mark, he said, “Let’s go for it”, and we began looking for houses.  We took our time and did our research.  In addition, we kept believing that the perfect home would show up, and we’d create a miracle regarding the money.

To make a long story short, we did find our slice of paradise.  We made it happen and took the LEAP even though it was very scary at the time.  I’ve lived my life this way and here is the secret:

  • Create big dreams
  • Do the hard work
  • Turn it over to the Universe
  • Trust the process
  • Never give up

This is what I help others do.  I help them see, feel, and hold onto their dreams until they become real through action and the power of the Universe.

I am so thrilled to have the privilege to lead this Smart Women Community and host the Smart Women Talk radio show.  I’d like to thank each and every one of you, our radio show guests, and our wonderful bloggers.  I also want to give a special shout-out to our Media Manager, Tara Backes, for making everything run so smoothly.

Don’t give up on your dreams.  Reach out for support.  We are here for you and invite you to share Smart Women with your friends.

BTW, I hope you can listen to the show with Satyen and Suzanne Raja.  I implemented what I learned from my last interview with them and it worked beautifully! Next month Mark and I are celebrating 31 years of marriage.  I’m excited to have Satyen and Suzanne back on the show!
