We're Back . . .
And gearing up for an amazing New Year!
Thank you note written in chalk on a slate heart hanging on a refrigerator door

Where have you been?
What's going on?

Those are two questions I have been asked quite often lately. Well, the truth is that after a very successful (albeit grueling) NH Conference for Women I was faced with two family members who had significant health issues. Add in there the holidays, a canceled vacation, etc., etc., and you have the perfect storm for overwhelm. I had to make the tough decision to step back for a bit.

The good news is that life is settling down and I'm excited for all the possibilities that this New Year brings.

Thank you all for your patience and for giving me the space I needed to recharge my batteries and deal with all that was on my plate. Your notes, messages and calls meant so very much to me and helped on those very dark days.

Thank you, too, for being the most amazing community of women. My life is forever changed because of all of you!

Many of you met Tory Johnson of Good Morning America at our NH  Conference for Women and received a copy of her book, The Shift. Tory agreed to make an encore appearance for Women Inspiring Women, this time through a "teleclass" of sorts. The call is complimentary. Oh yeah!

During this lively call, Tory will answer your burning questions in the areas of career, business, mindset, health, wellness, goals, personal growth and so much more - nothing is off limits! Can't attend the call live? Not to worry - you will be sent a recording to listen to at your leisure.

To register for this call and to submit questions, CLICK HERE.

Questions should be submitted by November 15th. Everyone who registers will receive the call recording - you do not need to attend live.

Johnson, Tory Low Res


Good Morning America's weekly contributor Tory Johnson is all about helping women make things happen! A painful firing from a job she loved led her to shift from employee to entrepreneur and build two multi-million dollar businesses. For 14 years, Women for Hire career expos have connected thousands of women with top employers across the nation. At her Spark & Hustle conferences, entrepreneurs learn how to profit from their passion for small business success.

Now, after a second major life change-losing more than 60 pounds in a year, which was prompted by a frank conversation with one of her TV bosses-Tory is on a mission to help others make the Shift for a better life.   

Tory shares what she learned in her own year-long weight loss journey to inspire others to change for good.


"I finally recognized that what I put in my head is much more powerful than what I put in my mouth," she says. Overweight her whole life, Tory says, "I had tried and failed at every diet and gimmick, and I assumed it was my fate to be fat forever."  That is, until a big boss led her to believe that the extra weight was jeopardizing her TV career.  At that moment, Tory decided it was time to change her mind for a better life, which is chronicled in her new book, The Shift, currently a New York Times best seller!



Before, during and after the call join us for a Facebook party on our Women Inspiring Women page. We will share thoughts about the call, exchange information that might be useful to other women and just have a good time. And Tory might make a surprise "appearance" there, too.
There will be gifts and other surprises!
