There are two types of “Spring” going on in my life this week. First, my children are on Spring Break from school so we are fortunate to have a lot of family time. And second, today is the first day of Spring. It’s a great time to begin thinking about the seeds I will plant to grow and nurture myself, my family and my business.
Spring provides a perfect environment to grow something new and beautiful in your life. I hope that you will take some time this week to look out at “your garden” and make plans to grow something new.

Last week, I wrote about the extraordinary women of our time being rebels. Well, I’ve got an extraordinary rebel woman story for you. Former Success Circle member, Carolyn Howard, had a strong desire to start her own business. She had a few challenges at the time. Carolyn had 2 sons, Nicholas and Noah, who were 4 and 18 months AND…she was pregnant with her third child!
I am proud to announce that today, Carolyn has given birth to both a new baby girl, Hannah Rose (now 5 months) and a new business that is experiencing early success, Carolyn Howard Knits. Carolyn designed these beautiful Priya wrapped sweaters. They are stunning, warm, comfortable and come in a variety of colors (I have a gorgeous one in the color lavender).
Carolyn truly is a “Rebel Woman.” She chose to follow her dream at a time that can be quite challenging for women. Oh, and the best part is that Carolyn is offering a 15% discount to any of the Smart Women “Reflection” readers, so check them out at www.CarolynHowardDesigns.com and view this truly “Rebel” sweater.
“Take a step, even a very small one, in the direction you want to go and then see how you feel.” ~Carolyn Howard
“The Circle gave us a safe environment to voice our feelings and feel we were being heard. Because of the structure and the tools I was able to grow and gain more self-awareness. I feel that I can also take these tools and use them to help live my life more attuned to my authentic purpose. I feel very honored to have been part of a group of such deep thinking women.” ~Carolyn Howard
