As a child I was raised by a single mom who worked as a secretary. She enrolled my brother and I in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program. The volunteer who acted was my Big was a mortgage broker. It was the first time I had seen a strong professional woman making her way in the world. She really opened my eyes to opportunities that I wouldn’t have seen otherwise!

Who is your must-listen-to or must-read author, blog or video blog? How do they inspire, motivate, encourage and/or help you?
I’m really enjoying the Pumpkin Plan right now. I bought because I’m obsessed with pumpkins (I LOVE to grow them) but it has been great at getting me to narrow my focus to what I’m really good at.
Any last words of wisdom to share with UTWNG members and future members?
