Kick-Start Your Life - Today!

Posted: Updated:

Everyone loves to live well. But if there’s one thing more satisfying -- and exciting -- than a living a good ol’ life, it’s kick-starting a new one.

As I told you last month, I have partnered with my good friends at The Today Show to help women who want to change their lives and get a kick-start onto a new path. The idea was: to find women across the country who are stuck -- whether they’re coming out of a divorce, or suddenly empty-nesting, or caught in a miserable job -- and help them become unstuck. Call it a makeover and shot of encouragement, all in one.

Well, I’m delighted to let you know that the project has taken off, and this week, we’ll begin airing our first “Kick-Start ” segments on The Today Show, on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 8:19 AM. What a thrill it was for me to travel to Rhode Island, Florida and New Hampshire and meet our first three remarkable women. I know you’ll love listening to their stories, and watching as our panel of experts help them chart a new course for their lives. Women everywhere are sure to learn from their experiences -- I know I did! -- and possibly begin kick-starting their own lives.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned since launching my website last fall, it’s that reinventing yourself -- and continuing to dream -- is something that’s in the hearts and minds of women everywhere. And it is something I plan to continue talking about. So I hope you’ll tune in to The Today Show this week, and use this space on HuffPost Women to keep the conversation going!
