I can’t figure out if it’s that I’ve been afraid to fail, or succeed. I really think I’m past the fear now, and I’m ready to try. I have been a member of this site for a while now.  I have spent so much time reading, and learning from everyone. I can’t explain why, but I feel as if a fire has been lit within me.  Thanks to all of you for the inspiration.

    • Hi Kim. This site has that effect, doesn’t it? One of these days I’m going to sit down and, in detail, write out just how inspiring and encouraging this site and these ladies have been for me. I could write an entire gratitude journal just about the experiences I’ve had in the short time I’m been here!

      I’m so glad you’ve been poking around here and getting to know people and enjoying it all.

      By the way, is that a new photo? You have a wonderful, bright smile!

    • How silly of me....I guess I did forget the details. I’m ready to start my business again. It’s been almost ten years, but I’m ready to start again.  I sold handpainted childrens clothing to specialty shops. I have a ton of new ideas now. This site has really helped to motivate me.
      I have pics of some of my older stuff on my profile page.

    • Dear Kim,

      I’m thrilled that Fab40 members inspired you. I’ve been watching your profile for a while, hoping that one day you will post a blog and tell us that you have finally figured out who you want to be when you grow up, and it looks like you did.

      Forty and Beyond are the most fabulous years of our life.

      I wish you great success in your business, and in my heart I know that now that you are ready nothing will stop you.  

      You have a beautiful family.

      Happy Girlfriends day!

      We are all rooting for you.

      Sending you lots of hugs.


      p.s. I just wanted you to know that when you post on your own wall in replying to someone else’s post that person doesn’t get notified.  In order to leave them a message go to their profile and post on their wall or send them a private message.

    • Congratulations!  One of the ladies I work with has a store (online and off) for hip “green” baby products; would working in that category interest you? Maybe you and she could team up to help distribute your designs as you move forward? Feel free to E-mail me when you‘re up and running. Best of luck!
