Dare, Dream, Do

My friend Whitney Johnson's  new book, Dare, Dream, Do: Remarkable Things Happen When You Dare to Dream, was launched this week. 

It contains a three-step model for happiness and personal advancement:

 1. DARE to boldly step out, consider disrupting life as we know it.

 2. DREAM of the possibilities, which will in turn give life to these possibilities      ......what ever your dream might be. 

 3. DO, she teaches us how to bring our dreams to life. 

The book is full of interesting and inspiring stories of women who have "dared to dream and do". I am amazed and thrilled to say she even included the story I tell in my other blog: mmmmCuba about the tales my mother told us as children in Cuba, about an adventurous frog named Antoñica, and how that helped me achieve a dream. I had been following Whitney's blog, she learned of me from a mutual friend, and reached out to me. She was the friend who "encouraged and coached" me as I prepared to fulfill the dream of hosting a TV show. 

I got the book a few days ago and I am loving every page, highlighting much. I want to give it to every woman in my life!
