Life Lessons, So Honored to be Mentioned

AM SO HONORED and I WANT to share this article India HIcks wrote in which she mentioned me. We seem to Share many of the same visions for whAT our venture can do to help OTHERS. Thank you India!

What is your vision, your aspirations for 2016?
If you can clearly visualize it, Make your INSPIRATION Board, and see it in your mind, you can make it happen. 

LIFE LESSONS

"Just before Christmas, whilst in New York, I attended a Get Together hosted by Jessica, one of the extraordinary women who have partnered with me. It was a lovely evening, not least because a fire was burning and candles were lit and interesting people mingled, chatted and shopped, but because this women had decided to donate all of the proceeds from the event to Mariska Hargitay’s Joyful Heart Foundation, a foundation that sheds light into the darkness surrounding sexual assault and domestic violence.

Later I joined another Get Together via Skype, this time bringing awareness to LAM, a rare lung disease that strikes women during their child-bearing years. Presently there is no cure for LAM. Heather was hosting this for her friend Laura, who has been diagnosed with LAM. Beautiful Laura was there with her two young children, smiling across a room, into the small Skype camera, a woman facing her future with remarkable courage, supported by those around her.

I just read a note sent out by another of our ambassadors, Karena, she spoke about our new venture providing the opportunity for her to now give back to some of her favorite charitable causes.

To think that this is all possible through our business is intoxicatingly rich.
And whilst acknowledging how much support of any kind means I want to say thank you to PORTER magazine for having me in your Life Lessons pages last month, where I spoke about some of the fears I have had as a mother…."


Thank you India and to all who have embraced and encourage me as an India Hicks Style Ambassador; who have hosted Get Togethers and purchased from this Finely Crafted Lifestyle Line! It is going to be a great year! I would love for many of you to give yourself the gift of becoming a member of India  Hicks' incredible group of women, of Style Ambassadors! 

We are just getting started on this great adventure!

I will share my Inspiration Board in my next post!
