Women of Inspiration

It was an incredible evening to be in the room with so many incredible women and men who are champions for women, who have important stories to tell and who can be role models for future generations. The celebration, Monica and Universal Womens Network™ have given us a forum to express those parts of our lives that have been difficult, but yet we keep pushing forward. It’s given us a place to be able to celebrate what we’ve accomplished in our world and no matter what happens, no matter how many times you fall, you can still pick yourself up and move forward. [Monica] is a champion of that. This has just been life-changing for me… I recognize for the first time that I can make a difference.

2019 Women of Inspiration Unsung Hero Award

Being nominated for this award has given me the realization that what you do in your life in business really does have an impact on the people around you even when you don’t think it does. Just being nominated for this award made me understand that “what you do really makes a difference, and as an individual, you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make”…Without even realizing it, your impact is truly inspiring to others, and that is the best recognition anyone can receive! It really changes your perspective on what you will continue to accomplish going forward!
