Chart Your Own Path
Nine times out of ten, it’s money that prevents us from leading the kind of life we want to lead. Maybe you’re looking to start a business, or switch your current job. Maybe you just wish you could take your kids out for a special meal every once in a while… if only you had a little extra cash.

Well, you may find inspiration, then, from the extraordinary young women in this section. All of them have taken great risks, overcome great failures, and worked long hours to get to the places they are. And all of them have transformed their attitudes about money—seeing it not as an obstacle, but as a powerful force that enables them to make the contribution they wish to make in the world

Meet Winnie Gitau, a Kenyan entrepreneur who overcame many forms of discrimination to start her own health food business. Or hear from Priya Haji, a young Indian-American woman from started a profitable business that sells crafts from around the world—and then invests back in the very communities that produce the crafts.

If you’re looking for that extra push to give you the courage to pursue your dreams, you’re in the right place. Please, share your stories, too, so that others may be similarly inspired!
