Women Offering Women Support: WOW!

I recently had the pleasure of meeting some wonderful women while presenting a Brené Brown,”Daring Greatly” workshop. The discussion topic was about how we ALL have the ability to “Dare Greatly”.  What caught my attention was the support and kindness all the women had for each other.
