I’m blessed to have the opportunity to meet different women, from different walks of life. Women who share their stories, trials and tribulations.

They mention how they would love the opportunity to start their own business, travel the world or follow their passion in life.

It made me think about Nike’s slogan, “Just Do It!” Often we sit around waiting for the right opportunity or moment to live out our dreams. For some, the right opportunity never comes; or at least they think it doesn’t.

When we’re blessed to rise to a new day, a new opportunity always presents itself. The challenge is, what will you do with the opportunity you’re given?

If you try to have a plan where everything is mapped out and nothing goes wrong, you’re in for a rude awakening.

For many of you, the right opportunity is now! If you’ve been laid off, have the option for early retirement or, have the financial means to start a new venture, why not?

When I started Women That Soar, I knew two things, I was passionate about women and media. At the time, I was working as a publicist. I had built a solid PR business with a pretty solid income.

However, I knew there was more for me in life. Yet, I didn’t have a clue as to how I would do it. I followed Nike’s slogan and I Just Did It. All I can say, its been one heck of a journey. LOL!

If you’ve been thinking about starting a new career, business, non-profit or traveling, create a plan and go for it.

For most people who are living their dream, they followed Nike’s philosophy.

Until next time, remember to Soar and Celebrate The Brilliance Within!
