Gail Lynne Goodwin, known as the Ambassador of Inspiration, has been lifting people's spirits for years. Motivated by mentors like Jack Canfield, John Assaraf and others, Gail realized the importance of daily morning inspiration in her own life. After years of gathering and sharing inspirational wisdom with others, she founded Inspire Me Today in 2008 to make the best inspiration daily easily available to the world.
Prior to InspireMeToday.com, and after more than 20 years in the real estate investment industry, Gail founded Dreaming Bear Music, a Nashville record label, in 2004. As a result of the success of their co-penned song, Baby Come Back Home, she spent several years managing her daughter, Carly's music career. Gail accompanied her daughter to bases in the US and three trips to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba where Carly performed for our troops. In 2006 Gail and Carly created the 'World's Longest Letter' of love and support to our troops, the Baby Come Back Home Soldier Scrolls. The scrolls reached more than 18 miles in length when they were signed by Congress at the US Capitol building in Washington, DC, just a week before they left to deliver the scrolls to 18 bases on a month-long tour of Iraq and the Persian Gulf.
Inspired by a Marine named Jesse who requested a hug and inspiration, Gail returned to the US and was determined to follow her dream to create Inspire Me Today. Inspire Me Today was launched in April 2008 and already reaches members worldwide in more than 80 countries!
The Global Hug Tour is her latest project. Gail and her husband, Darryl, a veteran pilot with NetJets, will take off in a small prop plane and fly 31,000 miles around the world on a 5-month tour, stopping at 50 international cities, to gather inspiration from Luminaries from the far corners of the world, give 2000 hugs per location to literally wrap 100,000 hugs around the world, and to share an estimated $1,000,000 with important non-profit causes.
Gail offers mentoring and mastermind services to clients worldwide. She and her husband Darryl reside with their Samoyed puppy, Koda, in Boulder, CO.
