Good News to Share


If you’ve attended one of my workshops or life balance Webinars, you know that I am a big fan of having you celebrate things, big or small, every day. Celebrating feels good AND it gives you a mental and physical boost – a jump start for your next task, your next project, or your next “BIG WHY” goal.

And sharing whatever you’re celebrating makes the celebration that much sweeter!

Today, I’m following my own advice and sharing two pieces of news with you:

1) My non-profit organization, the Wells International Foundation (WIF), celebrated its first anniversary on October 1.

2) We have a beautiful new Web site that showcases all of WIF’s six Strategic Focus Areas (SFAs) and our accomplishments over this first magnificent year! Here’s the link:

The SFA that is relevant for you in this e-mail blast is Women’s Empowerment. If you’re interested in any of the other SFAs (the arts, study abroad, STEAM education…), write to me at and let me know!


WIF’s first project under Women’s Empowerment is the LCC Workshop, which will be held in Paris, France on October 28. It’s an intimate gathering of women who will explore the topic of leadership through the lenses of communication and creativity.

For Making Productivity Easy, I have an ambitious project on the drawing board. I can’t reveal too much right now, but I can tell you that it involves scholarships for personalized mentoring in business and life balance for women entrepreneurs.

If you’d be interested in making suggestions for the planning of this program and eventually applying for one of the awards, send an e-mail with the subject line “DWM Scholarship” at



In my last e-mail to you, I spoke of planning an end-of-year fundraising campaign. It centers on Giving Tuesday, the Tuesday after American Thanksgiving. This year, Giving Tuesday falls on November 29.

WIF will be gearing up for this campaign over the next several weeks. If you know of anyone who is interested in one or more of our SFAs, please share the link to the Web site with them and tell them about the upcoming campaign. It’s going to be lots of fun!
