Philanthropy and Keeping it Real

As the author of the book Breaking Barriers 10 Entrepreneurial Women Share Their Stories I am pleased to announce that the first year of author royalties will be donated to SheEO.

A year ago, I embarked on a journey to share the stories of ordinary women who are doing extra ordinary things. This information share was to provide insight into everything from the ah ha moments to the barriers broken in order to pursue dreams and develop plans for success.

The foundation for this venture was simple and built on a platform of collaboration, innovation and business enterprise. I am pleased to say that we have received many positive comments on achieving that goal.

It is no secret that every successful venture receives support through the efforts of so many people who believe in your vision, and this project is no exception. The friendships we have forged throughout this first year have enriched the journey as we are all “keeping it real.”

There are so many people to thank: our publisher, Manor House, who is responsible for not only distributing the book but providing us with the accounting that supports our philanthropic efforts. The bookstores big and small who have given us the shelf space to share our dreams. To my family and friends for their encouragement with a you can do it, just keep going attitude and to you the reader the support you have shown has made this donation possible.

And finally, my heartfelt thanks to the women featured in the book for not only sharing their stories but taking a leap of faith to embark on this adventure with enthusiasm. I truly appreciate all of your support and look forward to staying connected in the years to come.

The wonderful thing about Breaking Barriers is that it is timeless. The stories we share will be as relevant in the future as the day it was written.

My vision is the same today as the day I began this journey and I will continue on the quest to share our stories and inspire others to pursue their dreams by “keeping it real.”

I look forward to sharing our stories and I thank you in advance for your support.
