W.I.T. – Meet the Wizards

Wizards in Training

For some of us, being authentic means making a major life change, taking a leap of faith and jumping into unknown territory.  Sometimes it means we need to be proud of where we are and find joy in the moment.  Other times it means rediscovering your hopes, dreams and ambitions and taking the necessary steps to turn them into a reality.  Wherever you find yourself at the end of 2016, I want you to know that you are not alone. I am with you and all of my Wizard Professors have been there and in some form or another are still walking through times of transition and rediscovery.

 Introducing… the Women Behind the Curtain

The beauty of this series is that we will learn from each other.  We will encourage one another and walk through life’s trials and joys together.I am so excited to introduce these Wizards to you!  Each one has and continues to help me on my journey.  I know that their joy, insight and incredible stories will incite change in your life as well as teach you and encourage you on how to be authentic no matter where you are in your life. So, today, as we become W.I.T.- Wizards In Training, meet your Wizard Professors for the 2016 Fall Semester!

I first heard Gabra before I met her.  She was on a podcast called, The Good Life Project telling her journey of making a pact with God and waiting on your dreams. She has taught me that although life may not turn out the way you expected, it’s still a beautiful patchwork tapestry and you need to embrace the beauty.

Michele and I have been friends for ten years.  She is a constant source of inspiration and encouragement to me. Michele’s story of perseverance, faith and strength, truly lives up to the Shakespearean phrase, “Though she be but little, she is fierce.” Her powerful artwork is not only majestic, but much of it has provided aid to impoverished children all over the world.

W.I.T.

Fellow W.I.T. students,  I am so excited for our Master Class on Wizardry with these ladies.  I look forward to taking this journey with you as together we each learn how to be our authentic selves, no matter where we are in life. Life may bring you surprises of all shapes and sizes, but it’s what you do with them and how you respond that will make you a Wizard.
Be the change you hope to see.  Do you.
To The Revolution!
