8 women dream on twitter

Last week, I wrote a post titled, Positive Thursday: A Guide to an Extraordinary Life and explained:

Living the extraordinary life means seizing opportunities when they are presented, being passionate about what you love, enjoying the people you are surrounded by.

Living the extraordinary life means sharing your journeys with others, in hopes that they might learn and grow from your battles.

One way that I’ve “surrounded myself with people I enjoy” is through social networking. Until recently, I hadn’t met any of the 8 Women Dream bloggers.

I haven’t met a lot of people that read my blog or that I follow on Twitter. Twitter is a fantastic resource for getting inspired, motivated and encouraged to live life and pursue your dreams. In this week’s short post, I have compiled 8 Women Dreamers to follow on Twitter to get your daily dose of joy and inspiration.

I’ve selected women who use their social networking sites as an outlet to express their own feelings, but more importantly to help others. These tweeters use their 140 characters strategically to set words of wisdom and motivation to their followers.

The list is below and I’ve selected 3 tweets for each person to give you a snapshot of what each woman is all about.

    I was introduced to your positive Thursday writings by one of my roommates. I like your positive spin on everything. You must be very fun to be around. Thanks for the lift. I guess I should join Twitter. I didn’t realize you could find inspiration there instead of just nonsense and celebrity gossip.

    Great write-up. These are certainly an impressive list of women but where are all the women of 8 Women Dream? Are any of them on Twitter besides you?

  • Great list. I once interviewed with Marci Shimoff to be her personal assistant. I think it must be a very small world. I love listening on Twitter, so I completely agree with your list. Twitter can be a great resource for inspiration and knowledge — not to mention making new connections.


  • Gail Lynne Goodwin

    Andrea, I’m honored to be included on your list of inspirational Tweeters. And, I’m in GREAT company too!

    Thank you for the light you are shining in the world through this blog and by just being you. I’m grateful to have been introduced to your blog and I’ll be back again next Thursday.

    Thanks again for including me with this amazing bunch of women!


  • Mariska
