Inspiration - Who inspires you?

Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.
-- Judy Garland

It's been a while since I posted, but I'm back. Did I mention I have two young boys who keep my life full and busy?

So here we are, it's the middle of March and Women's History Month. I've been thinking this last week about women in my life who have inspired me.  There have been and are many fabulous women in my life who help me to be the best I can.  These women are not necessarily my closest friends and family or the famous, but are often acquatances who are the same as me.

Last spring, I came across a listserv of mom business owners in the DC area called The Enterprising Moms. I was still exploring whether or not to become my own boss, and I signed up for this listserv and have been lurking on the list for about a year now. I don't know these women very well, but I think these women are inspirational.  Their businesses run the gamut from jewelry-making to writing books to accounting. They are truly inspirational every day women - they are not only managing their businesses, but raising their children and trying to have a work-life balance. I think they are terrific. What about you? Who inspires you?
