International Women’s Day 2012 ~ What Does It Mean To You?

As a woman I have personally never questioned my ability to set up a business, to do as I please or to make my dreams come true. However, International Women’s Day got me thinking… what would it have been like as a woman trying to be independent and start a business in the first part of the last century? It would have been totally different.

As women we’ve come so far over the past century. Our roles have changed and expanded and now, for most of us, we are able to be independent, entrepreneurial and driven to be successful in our own right.

So this year, for me, International Women’s Day is a day to be thankful for the opportunities we now have. It’s also a day to remember just how much we can all accomplish when work as a team and support each other.

When I read over the stories women have shared on FEA it makes me smile – there are some truly amazing and inspirational women in the world and I hope that by sharing the stories they inspire others to achieve more.

Here are some inspirational words from some amazing women…

When we do the best we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.

{Helen Keller}

The most effective way to do it, is to do it.

{Amelia Earhart}

 If you don’t like being a doormat then get off the floor. 

{Al Anon}

It is only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on Earth and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it were the only one we had.

{Elisabeth Kubler-Ross}

 If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.

{Katharine Hepburn}

Forget about the fast lane. If you really want to fly, just harness your power to your passion.


Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

{Maya Angelou}

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.  

{Eleanor Roosevelt}
