From the Founder
I have always been fascinated with women’s personal stories and their pathways to success. Real, life changing success. From an early age, I sought out biographies of the male role models, read their stories and admired their achievements, but seeking out the same type of stories for female role models proved to be a bit more challenging. I wondered why women had not achieved similar types of accolades and if they had, where were their stories. I am a wife, a mother and a woman with many years of experience in the business world achieving my own level of success along the way. As a mother of a daughter especially, I felt compelled to fill that void that I felt when seeking female role models and mentorship throughout my career.
So many women have quietly achieved meaningful and impactful careers in so many different fields. I felt their stories needed to be shared. Shared with the intention of inspiring & encouraging other women to follow their own passion. I wanted to create a network of women who were willing to offer tips and helpful advice for others as well as offer a platform where women could ask questions, be vulnerable, encouraged and feel supported along their path towards their next goal.
So after a long career in a male dominated industry, where I found it difficult to find female mentors, so I decided to create a digital platform where all types of women can learn from those with valuable experiences and advice. Chime In Project is my version of a helpful solution, a resource for those seeking to expand their careers & goals. I want to connect experience with women seeking new sources of inspiration and courage. I want to share the stories of the extraordinary women I’ve met and interviewed, to give a platform to their struggles and their paths towards empowerment.
Everyone has a story. Everyone has a purpose. Everyone has a passion. The issue is not what they sought to achieve, but how they went about overcoming obstacles and obtained their goals.
Oftentimes only the stories of the fantastic and the celebrity are shared. While these stories are indeed inspiring, many find it difficult to fully relate. So I’m on a mission to pluck the extraordinary from the ordinary, and to shine a light on all types of women. These stories are raw, untouched, often times not glamorous but they are real, relatable and hopefully they will inspire you to Chime In to the conversation, get inspired, step out of your comfort zone and push yourself to reach for your next goal.
I want to invite you to join me, to celebrate real life stories of overcoming limitations and achieving goals. My hope is that by sharing these stories, you’ll be encouraged to Chime In, join us in the conversation, get inspired, step out of your comfort zone and push yourself to reach for your true purpose.”
Chime In Project is the pursuit of women helping women, through examples of struggle and triumph on the path to personal success.
Join me. “Chime In.”
