What does it take to undo the “dream stealing” influences of our childhood and the negative impact of the world so that we can experience the joy and passion in everything we do, every day?

Who hasn’t looked back on their life and thought about where they could be and who they could be now if only they hadn’t cared so much what everyone else thought about them.

  • Maybe they would have gone out for the team/band/play because they loved it, instead of worrying that they would look foolish or fail.
  • Maybe they would have applied themselves more and gotten more involved in academics, if not for the fear of seeming uncool to their peers.
  • Or simply gotten ready in the morning and gone about their day without looking in the mirror and criticizing every little thing about themselves before others had the opportunity.

And knowing now, that what other people thought about our dreams, goals, and desires… never really mattered. It only held us back!

All too often, we women continue to unknowingly hold ourselves back from being our true, full selves. Only we do it in new more “adult ways”.

It is time to quieten the battle raging in your mind and transform your life.  It is time to break free and become the person, entrepreneur, the business owner you want to become… the woman that you were on track to be as a joyful, passionate, and “I can do anything I dream about” filled with tenacity kind of gal. Just like we were as young children!!

That feeling, that zest for life is the essence of ‘Dare to Be D.I.N.O!’ And it was inspired by my son Quinn, on his 8th birthday.

Let me introduce you to him.  Quinn finds the joy in life without being encumbered by the opinions and biases of everyone and everything going on around him.  It is embedded in his heart, his attitude, and his vision for the future.  My son truly lives in a colorful world that is bright, fun, and filled with plenty of time to play. Time to revel. Time to feel pure happiness.

Quinn is a great example of what it takes for us, as adults- to ‘Dare to Be D.I.N.O!’

Quinn LOVES dinosaurs.  It’s a passion of his. At a time when most kids usually outgrow their interest in dinos, his lived on. We have dino shirts, pillows, toys, discovery games, board games, blankets, books and many other dinosaur-themed objects.  For his eighth birthday, I made him a 3-D Dinosaur cake.  It filled him with blissful joy… and chocolate cake.

Are you filled with joy?

Joy is defined differently for all of us, but how we find it is very similar.  A key element to rediscovering the joy in our life is to have vision; a clear vision of what we want, of what we can be, of what is available to us and knowing the steps necessary to achieve that vision.

No matter what your passion, your circumstances, your surroundings, no matter what your friends, family or coworkers think… you can find joy!  Just as the dinos brought joy to my boy Quinn.

This is the moment the inspiration for the “D.I.N.O.” concept started!
