Why I Hate New Year’s Resolutions

Why I Hate New Year’s Resolutions By Leslie Sturgeon, WIW Founder I refuse to make New Year’s resolutions. I can’t explain why I have such an aversion to them, but I just do. Maybe because it seems like a negative or a bad habit that I need to overcome. I also try to tune out the mid-winter focus on “why you haven’t kept your New Year’s resolutions.” Again, that seems so negative as if we all fail after a month or two. For me January is the … [Read more...]

Why Women Inspiring Women?

A Note From Leslie Sturgeon, WIW Founder I am the woman I am today because of the other women I met along my journey! Plain and simple truth. As a young 22-year-old entrepreneur, I knew that in order to succeed I needed to learn from those who blazed a trail before me, not just from my parents who were life-long business owners. It was 1989 when I started my first service business and in the small community of the Lakes Region there were … [Read more...]

What’s Up With A Male Speaker at a Women’s Event??

I wanted to address something that has come to my attention recently - the fact I have hired a male speaker for our NH Conference for Women in November.  Why on earth would I do such a thing - after all, this is a women's conference?! Believe me, I did contemplate how this would be received. But the fact of the matter is, Jack Canfield is world renowned and holds the record for the most number of books at once on the NY Times Bestseller List … [Read more...]

Sitting on the Loser’s Bench with Less Padding!

Many people have asked why there were no Women Inspiring Women events this summer. Here's the scoop . . . On July 8th, I went in for life-changing bariatric surgery (Sleeve Gastrectomy). I have been a big girl my entire life. Although 5'10" for as long as I can remember, I have also filled that big frame with extra weight! Not something I am proud of and undoubtedly noticed by those I have met through the years. Significant stress, overwhelm, … [Read more...]
