Turn this Year into Your Dream Action Plan

We all have goals and we 8 Women Dream have some big ones. My goal-making Achilles heel is the action plan. A perfect example of a goal: I will get in shape. This goal can be seen at any gym or fitness center on January 1st. Just stop by and look in the window at […]

Give Me 2 Weeks In So California and I’ll Build a Rose Parade Float

PASADENA, Calif. — About a thousand people were in and around the Rose Bowl on Tuesday afternoon as preparations for Friday’s game continued. Yes, Friday . . .

How to Make 2010 The Best Year Yet

2009 was full of adventures for me. I was surfing in Costa Rica; celebrating Christmas in Argentina where I have danced night after night until sunrise, one night dancing in the pouring rain to Brazilian bossa nova; attending President Obama’s inauguration, and partying at one of the official balls where Barack and Michelle danced on-stage […]

Every Now and Then You Have To Set Aside Your Dream
