The Secret Behind 8 Women Dream

The following two tabs change content below.

Catherine Hughes

Director of the 8 Women Dream Project at 8 Women Dream
Catherine’s dream is to make 8 Women Dream the premier online publication for women looking to pursue their dreams. She is a published author, a freelance writer, and a guide for those who want their dreams to come true online. Catherine would someday like to be invited to speak at TED about her observations about her 8WD project inviting women to take a chance on their dreams. Wine was required... Catherine posts on Sunday evenings and fills in dream stories as needed. If you aren't sure how to comment on this story, click here.

Seth Godin is one of my favorite best selling authors (and popular blogger) who writes about marketing trends and invented the phrase “permission marketing”.   His latest book, Tribes discusses how our role today is to find, connect and lead tribes in order to make change happen.

Where am I going with this?  In case you are confused as to what EXACTLY is 8 Women Dream I can tell you 8 Women Dream is a small tribe of women who banded together for one cause: to help each person in the group achieve a long-held dream.

We expect to learn a great deal about what prevents us from moving forward in our dreams, as well as what helps.  Some of us will succeed, some may not.  We will share our progress, and our steps on this blog.  My ultimate goal to open this process to the world.  I believe every one can achieve their dreams if they are committed to them and have support.

I invite you (when you have 18 minutes to spare) to watch Seth Godin speaking at TED.  He discusses the real secret behind 8 Women dream: a tribe.  Enjoy:

Are you interested in being a part of the 8 Women Dream tribe?  Email me at and let me know (or post a comment).

Keep dreaming –


(This week Catherine worked on the marketing of this blog, walked and studied the book Everything Public Speaking. Catherine’s dream is to be a motivator, motivational speaker and published writer. She is testing her theories on motivation with this blog and the seven other women who have volunteered to be a part of her dream project. Catherine also writes about her life as a mom at the blog A Week In The Life Of A Redhead. Someday, she would like to be invited to speak at TED.)

  • Catherine

    I’ve put together a forum and we are still testing how it works. Would you be interested in guest posting? Let me know your thoughts.

  • Have you read The Dip: A Little Book That Teaches You When to Quit (and When to Stick)by Seth Godin? If not I think you should and I think you will like it. The theme goes right along with your blog here.

  • Not sure if my comment went thru, so here it is again. Yes, I would love to become part of your “tribe.” I’m a firm believer in women helping other women and would love to see how I can help.
