As I reflect, 2015 was a most exciting year, filled with growth and a strengthened community across Northern Virginia.
I personally grew, surrendered and decided to stop fighting (mostly myself) in pursuit of excellence. I am grateful for the support and love experienced in your many words and deeds – Thank you!
This year, I promise will be EPIC – Woo Hoo!
Despite my fears and a few doubts, I started 2015 with a new attitude. I committed and decided to lose weight and with the help of Dr. Brooks and his coaching team (see cover story). I transformed my body and my mind was renewed, and that was just the beginning!
Thanks to YOU, we have expanded our reach across the region. Virginia WOMAN Magazine is now serving Prince William and Arlington counties. That WOMAN is happy to be a part of THREE NoVa communities. We have sponsored and published numerous not-for-profit businesses throughout the year. We intend to double those efforts in 2016.
Our expansion also includes the growth of contributors who educate, empower, inspire and inform – the heart of who we are. And, we are seeking WOMAN covers (see page 8 and tell us why you should be on the WOMAN cover in November)!
We are expanding our brand, becoming a publishing/media firm geared toward helping women write and Publish “HER story!” Every WOMAN has one and a few may even become a bestseller!
As an Educator, I affirm and declare… we must tell our stories and share – blogs, print, social media, speeches and our words. Our duty and legacy for our daughters (and sons) and the great men who support us is to speak our truth, with courage and determination.
I welcome to help you to get it WRITE. Perhaps you’ll want to start with writing for one of our magazines. Overall, we are proud to partner and help you discover your excellence in 2016.
Excited to see you, I welcome your thoughts, ideas and information in this, our fifth year of publishing! Let’s work together and continue on our path to excellence.
