I just love this quote:“I hope you will find some way to break the rules and make a little trouble out there. And I also hope that you will choose to make some of that trouble on behalf of women.” – Nora Ephron, screenwriter

I designed my 2017 MANIFESTO is to make sure I do exactly what that quote says.

Start something new

Accept the opening of doors and honoring the closing of others

Strive to become unforgettable

Be stronger and braver

Embrace my superpowers and use them mostly for good (I have to have a little bit of fun, right?)


Move out of survival mode and live my life where I am

Be okay with regrets

Roll my eyes less, but not decrease my disdain for drama



Loudly use my voice in a positive arena

Seek the magic

Live a bit more on the edge

Just be as often as necessary

Remain 50+ and fabulous.
