Do you care about having a meaningful impact on the world? If so, this is your invitation to be part of a small intimate group of visionaries who support each other in living with purpose and finding their calling but also in self-care, abundance and balance.

The U.S. presidential inauguration has passed. The women’s march is over. For climate, race, women’s rights and so much else, it doesn’t look good to many of us (no matter how we voted). So, now what? In this post, I talk about how to stay involved, how much effort it will take, how to deal with disappointment and frustration, and the tremendous rewards of making an effort.
