So, here we are in March: Women’s History Month. It’s a time to celebrate the females from our past and present who are contributing to better, more inclusive lives for all.
Of the 32 people I interviewed from around the world for my newest book “Pushing The Boundaries” (pushingtheboundaries.life), 15 of them are extraordinary women who have reached beyond their fears to take on new dimensions while heightening their existence. We’re talking about Tuedon Morgan, who lost over 100 pounds to become one of the most decorated Nigerian marathon runners ever… Ghislaine Landry, who has showcased excellence in women’s rugby by winning Olympic Bronze… Ariane Labelle, who casts aside convention to transform her world in unconventional ways… Steph Jagger, who quit her job and sold everything to ski across five continents… Sarah Caylor, who races in demanding marathon bicycle events against much younger competitors… Yvonne Heath, who has forfeited her career as a nurse to become an author, speaker and TV host. It has been a distinct pleasure and honor to meet each of these amazing ladies, and the others I talked with, and learn about their ability to expand lives.
I mentioned before that when I was running my marketing agency, I paid females at the same rate as males, as well as provided equal opportunities for advancement. Just seemed natural to me that women in the workplace ought to be treated equally to men. Surely there’s not room for a different approach today.
So in this Women’s History Month, I say: Here’s to the Ladies!!!
