When the opportunity arose to have a real conversation with my daughter, Maya, and record it for the Strong Women's Club I grabbed it! Wouldn't you??

We talk about her work in the Israeli army, growing up with three brothers, how our divorce affected her, gender equality and more.

What does it mean for her, and others her age, to be a strong woman?
Do they even need to think about it, or can they take being treated equally for granted?

Today’s episode I talk to myself … a lot!

No special guest stars this week, only me, talking about what I’ve done so far, hardships and hiccups in the past, and plans for this show in the next year.

I tell you about my past experiences, the motivation behind the podcast, why I choose to empower women and motivate them to reach their dreams.

This is a wonderful new adventure for me that carries with it a heavy importance and a mission.

The mission is to teach women and show them through real life stories that it is never too late to fulfill their dreams.

This podcast is not fluff or abstract or cliché’s.
I talk to real women who have worked hard, had bumps and lumps along the way, and are sharing their stories with us so that we can learn from them.

Today's episode is personal and a little revealing, but not TMI, I hope.
And as I talk to you my thoughts become clearer and my message stronger.
Let me know what you think about today's episode.

You are the reason I do the podcast and I truly appreciate you, the wonderful women in this club!

Check out the mastermind program. The prices are still really low. See if it's something you would find beneficial to get to the place you want to me in 3 months time.

Thank you so much for listening,
Have a really great day,
and stay strong!!
