We are having so much fun with our new video blog series! Although we still have room to improve and grow, we are loving the women we are talking with.  Angela Lewis, director of Network For Teaching Entrepreneurship, has such contagious energy and shares with us everything from how to set boundaries, turning your differences into strengths, and how to achieve your dreams.  

We want to hear from you! Do you have a woman we should interview.  Comment below and tell us about her.

Stacy Taubman

Thank you to all who tuned in to our video blog kickoff last week! We are loving this project and hope you are too.  This week we are featuring the very talented Jocelyn Seagrave. You may have seen her on shows such as Guiding Light and Charmed.  We'd love to hear what you thought and be sure to share with your friends!

Video Blog Kickoff!!

Stacy Taubman

We are thrilled to kick off our new video blog series featuring impressive women and their stories.  When Founder/CEO, Stacy Taubman, started GDB she began interviewing smart, strong, successful women and realized their stories were incredible.  She would leave the interviews so motivated and inspired.  We decided it was time to get these women on camera for you.  There is power in their stories and we want you to see all the different paths there are.  

Keep in mind this is a new project and we are learning and growing as we go. Stacy still gets rather nervous to be on camera, but feels it's important to push past your fears and own your "imperfections".  Our first guest, Naretha Hopson, is a dynamic and strong women who you will definitely enjoy hearing from.  Please share with your friends and let us know what you thought.

The One Thing I Wish I Knew Before Going to College...

Stacy Taubman

As the school year comes to a close, I find myself in a state of reflection.  I truly believe it is important to not only look back, but also to share what you have learned.  When you are young it is so hard to see beyond the here and now. I asked a ton of impressive women of all ages to complete the sentence, "The one thing I wish I knew before going to college...."

Below are the wonderful answers I received and I hope they help you as you move forward in your journey:

You Mean Summer Doesn't Last Forever...?

Stacy Taubman

I have bad news for many of you…the school year is right around the corner. Whether you are headed to college or high school, it will be here before you know it.

I feel like summer is a tricky time for many.  Throughout the school year, you long for the summer and many of you even count down the days.  When it finally arrives it can feel kind of weird to have so much free-time on your hands. Early on, you may have struggled with feeling bored.  It takes awhile to transition from the rigid schedule of the school year to the mass quantity of time that you now have on your plate.

Women I Dream of Meeting

Stacy Taubman

Part of my journey this past year has been interviewing smart, strong and successful women. Although I feel like I have an idea of what it takes to be successful, I've been a teacher for twelve years. I love hearing from other women in all fields and learning about their story. Every time I leave an interview I am so inspired and pumped up. I have had the privilege of talking to almost 100 women this past year. St. Louis has some very impressive women and I am incredibly honored that so many people were willing to sit down and talk with me.

Gymnastics to the Rescue

Stacy Taubman

Growing up for me was tough for many reasons. I grew up in the suburbs of St. Louis, Missouri in an area with quite a bit of new money, something of which we definitely didn't have. We weren't poor by any means, but my sister and I regularly got made fun of on the bus for our off brand outfits. It was made clear to us that we didn't fit in and our clothing choices were not ok.
