Free Download: Dream Inventory Checklist

Last week, I shared my travel dream for you, and today, it’s time for all of us–no matter where we are with our dreams–to take an official “Dream Inventory.” One of the key things I’ve learned in the past year is that your dreams won’t go far if you do not have clearly defined, measurable […]

Is Worry a Part of Dream Success?

As 8 Women Dream becomes a top blog my worries intensify. I’ve worried all week. As the 8WD visitors easily tipped over 25,000 a month, I worried what it’s going to be like when the figure hits 50,000, then 100,000, then 250,000. I’ve seen this coming, but the realization that it was happening kept me […]

Memoir Writing Dreams are Bigger than Family Dynamics

When I quit my journalism job to take a year off to write my memoir book, Confessions of an Undutiful Daughter, at first I didn’t tell my teen-tiiny micro-family about my dream. I said I needed a break. I needed to do something new. I’d probably look for a job that was completely different and […]

Could Your Dream Survive Without Money?

Money, you see – the convenience of it, the lightness of it, the sheer ubiquity of it in all its forms – does not prompt consciousness of value in me.

I’ve had the opportunity to work with some great clients over the past 7 years. They are big business, small business, and the […]

Positive Thursday: Are You Devoted To Making Your Dreams Come True?

Today I want to chat briefly about devotion, dedication and passion. We all have dreams and goals for the future, but these are just far-fetched ideas unless we are ready to turn them into realities. This can’t and won’t happen by simply acknowledging your dreams, but actively dedicating yourself to the idea and making it […]

Tales From India: How to Live Your Dreams By Surrendering

It is hard not to fall in love with India when your dream is to write a memoir and you find yourself suddenly thrown into her open arms. She offers you everything. A land of contrasts, she is modern, and ancient. Glittering, and dusty. From sequined saris on regal women, gliding through the streets, to […]

I’m thrilled to be dreaming with seven other amazing women and the ever-popular you this year! There’s no telling what travel dreams we can accomplish if we stick together. I know this post […]

The Top 8 Ways to Start Living Your Dream

I’ve been bored with my life more times than I’d like to admit. It’s a life-hangover resulting from looking for stimulus outside myself in boyfriends, husbands, parties, partying friends and the ever-alluring search for the new — rather than focusing on where I wanted my life to go. Instead of steering my life in a […]
