I should probably start this weekly segment by introducing myself, but I didn’t get it together in time. Oops! So I’m starting with someone for which I have a great deal of admiration and respect: Lee Heyward, owner of Style with Lee.
I have learned a lot about running a business by watching her. I met her at a networking function where she was the speaker, and I have been lucky enough to develop both a business relationship and a friendship with her. We did a really fun webinar together earlier this year, and tomorrow I have the privilege of presenting with her at the Center for Women.
Without further ado, meet Lee…
“Real beauty is all about feeling confident. When you feel confident your beauty shows from the inside out. To feel beautiful you have to believe it’s something you can have. That it’s not something reserved for super models or the genetically gifted. I think you discover real beauty by presenting yourself in a way that makes you feel fantastic, is authentic to who you are, and puts a spring in your step. I think when you feel great you’re able to bring true beauty to everything you do.”
“I don’t think I ever felt beautiful until I reached my late 20’s. Until that age it was easy to fall in the trap of comparing myself to others. Now that I’ve reached the old age of 33 (Ha!) feeling beautiful makes me feel powerful. I’m able to see the flaws (everyone has them) but not focus on them. Instead I focus on my hair, my freckles, and pale skin which make me feel beautiful in a unique way.”
“These days I find myself playing with my three year old. I’m amused by her every day. When I’m not playing with my family I find a lot of joy when I’m on the back of a horse. It’s something I’ve done since I was five years old. When I ride I feel at home and as if all is right in the world.”
A HUGE THANK YOU to Lee Heyward!
