* The "Aha Moment." - Coined by Oprah * "Let's see where we are and where we're going." * "I didn't look at is as entrepreneurship back then, that's just what Grandma did."
"Aha Moment" It is said that we experience an "Aha" moment when we are guided to remembering something we once knew, when a piece of our truth is awakened inside of us. Listening to women share what they are celebrating and struggling with leads us through meaningful dialogue to deeper inner knowing.
"Let's see where we are and where we're going." Have you ever looked back on a year that has passed and wondered how it slipped by so quickly? Maybe you check in at work with a boss on how you're coming along with a project, and where you're headed. Or you may talk with your kids about what they have experienced and what their dreams are. How much effort and love have you put into designing your inner being, noticing your thoughts, and relaxing to feel unapologetically calm?
"I didn't look at is as entrepreneurship back then, that's just what Grandma did." It took me listening to this podcast to experience my "Aha" moment, that my grandmother is a business woman. She pays youth to collect live crabs, and then cooks them to sells their meat. She is a trailblazing entrepreneur. I am not the first in my family after all.
What were the circumstances surrounding the experience of your most epic "Aha Moment"? Looking forward to listening to your truths.
