Life is about the journey and the people you meet along the way. I'm excited and honored to participate in the launch of Bridging The Gap campaign, a campaign that unites the Millennial and Midlife Demographics to blur the artificial lines while encouraging mentorship, authentic connections and a community to lift others.
Catherine Grace O, who is a previous guest on the She Did It Her Way podcast, has taken the initiative to bring together 200 influencers who have stepped up to take part in social change for good.
Through this experience I had the pleasure of meeting and instantly connecting with Mindy Schinnerer, a strong business woman, a mother and a former professional singer. I was blown away and inspired by Mindy's journey and her career. It is not every day that one can say they've worked alongside Fleetwood Mac or Don Henley - think Boy's of Summer.
What I appreciated most from our conversation and something that has inspired me is how Mindy doesn't let mistakes in life define her, she let's go of the unimportant things and keeps herself open to the right opportunities.
Thank you Catherine Grace O and Bridging The Gap team for bringing us together!
For me, and I'm imagining for many, by her warmth and lit up personality, Amanda Boleyn is one of those women whom you meet and immediately feel like you've known each other before or know that you are certainly destined to become friends.
Maybe it's because of our small town, midwestern roots, our love at first date relationships become marriages, enchantment with living in Chicago or our passion for empowering and mentoring female entrepreneurs that we realized we are so much more alike and connected as women in this life, and not defined, limited or separated by our age.
I was inspired listening to her share about how like myself, she has always been willing to follow the opportunities where life is guiding her and yet has a big vision & purpose directing the way. Her passion project SheDidItHerWayPodcast.com was born out of her innate teaching and leadership skills and a desire to create community for female entrepreneurs and to empower women to create businesses that thrive doing what they love.
I'm so impressed by how Amanda boldly brings her ideas into fruition. She is now branching out to create live events with the first She Did It Her Way Summit coming up this month in Chicago!
So much fun that Bridging the Gap brought us together, but even more so that it's only the beginning!
