Honoured To Be Included

A couple of days ago I found myself mentioned on twitter by a couple of smart, capable and passionate women in response to ’s request for inspirational women.

For me, there is nothing more wonderful than being told you are an inspiration.  From inspiring someone to see the world from a different perspective to inspiring someone to change the world, inspiration can be one of the most powerful forces for change, growth and innovation there is.

Not only was I honoured to be mentioned on their lists, but I was also honoured to be included with the powerhouse women who inspire:


erin_bury: @womenspost My inspiring tech women picks are @leilaboujnane @alexaclark @nicopop @SarahPrevette @aprildunford @karmacakedotca @melle #IWD

MolsonTonia: @womenspost Have a few! Some inspiring women picks: @Miss604 @alexaclark @KimVallee @AmberCadabra #WomensPost #InspiringTwoman #IWD

aprildunford: @womenspost Here’s my #inspiringTwoman picks. The Startup Folk @SarahPrevette @LeilaBoujanane @ECHOage @JacquiMurphy @erin_bury    More #inspiringTwoman picks. The Do-Gooders: @AlexaClark @S_Moore   More #inspiringTwoman picks. Gals I will see speak at SXSWi: @michele_perras @tinkugallery

My list? (please excuse the brevity, these are direct quotes from twitter)

There are MANY women and men who inspire me to think, explore and create, but here are the 7 that I tweeted:

Evelyn Hannon @journeywoman Who took up the challenge of showing the world women COULD travel alone. And then built one of the largest online communities around it.  [Check out Journey Woman: www.journeywoman.com]

Tara Hunt @missrogue Who, in the few short years I’ve known her, has done more, lived more, been more & inspired more, than most do in a lifetime! [More about Tara at www.horsepigcow.com]

Melinda Sinclair  My professional coach who has challenged me to ask the big questions of myself, and embrace the chaos to find direction. [More about Melinda www.melindasinclair.com]

Tanya Tiziana @tanjatiziana Whose photography has inspired me to open my eyes & pay attention. [See her work at www.doublecrossed.ca]

Cybelle Srour Whose sense of Integrity is my benchmark! [See her on LinkedIn]

Rosemary Rowe @rosemaryrowe Who inspires me to laugh at everything from dead bears to dating (http://www.seekingsimone.com/) and the olympics (http://www.creampuffrevolution.com/)

Kate Trgovac @mynameiskate Who inspires me to work outside of my comfort zone just so I can understand what she’s up to. [Read her on www.mynameiskate.ca and www.funchico.com]

(on re-read of this last one I realize I wasn’t very clear, so to clarify: Kate is brilliant and inspires me to think, create and push my own boundaries.)

Thank you all!
