It’s never easy to seek new opportunities that may disrupt your life. Your natural instincts and immediate concerns of the day urge caution and delay. Yet many other women have done this successfully -- redefined who they are, founded new businesses, embarked on new careers, and/or changed their lifestyles.

It doesn’t matter whether you are starting anew, feel trapped in a job, or are thinking of better ways to invest your time, energy, and passion. Learn strategies to make it easier to take the first steps towards creating a different future.
