I Want Someone to Know She’s Extraordinary
When someone inspires you, do you let her know? We are all surrounded by women who make our lives better because of their loyalty, work ethic, sense of humor, thoughtfulness, talent, or heart of service. Sometimes, the easiest way to pay them back is with a simple, “Hey! I believe in you. And I’m grateful.”

If you know a woman who should hear that message, enter her name and email address and that’s exactly what’s she’ll receive in her inbox: a message of gratitude and a reminder that she’s extraordinary.

I Want to Submit an Extraordinary Woman for the Podcast
At the end of March, I’m compiling an episode made up of interviews with the extraordinary women from your lives. Do you have a friend, colleague, neighbor, teacher, or family member who inspires you? Tell us why you think she’d make a great mini-interview!
