Words From The Chair

Deb Hohn / 2019 THE Ohio WiNUP Chapter Chair

Finding your Happy Place! Everyone has heard me say this many times. Once you find your happy place, your passion will shine through! Your passion is what fuels your soul!

So how do you find your passion, your happy place? As stated in the article this month, first you must Get Clarity-to BE REAL! What is your purpose? Every person has a purpose in life! Simply stated in Deb fashion:

  • CLARITY gives Life Purpose
  • Life Purpose is Fueled by PASSION
  • AUTHENTICITY leverages the passion within to live a purposeful life

“Success isn’t about how your life looks to others. It’s about how it feels to you. Realize that being successful is never about being impressive, it is being inspired to live your best life! That’s what it means to be true to yourself.”

From me to you, I wish you all well! Now go find the Real YOU! Let’s “Be Real Together” at the 2019 International WiNUP conference, in Denver, Colorado!

Driving Your Leadership. Be Real. Be Passionate. Be the Authentic You!
