“What a fabulous movement you have started!”

She Did It Boston

“I attended She Did It/Boston and loved it!  I knew it would be a special day, and signed up as soon as I heard about it.  I think I underestimated the affect it would have on me, however.  I left feeling a sense of bubbling positive energy.  So I thank you and feel fortunate to have attended such a motivational day!” D’Ann Hansen

She Did It Boston

“I wanted to tell you what an awesome job I thought you and your partner did at the event on Tuesday.  Hope you are proud of yourself…in other words…you did it!!!  Think it might have lit a small fire under my dear friend as well.  Just seeing what other women do, how they plan and falter and commiserate and grope around in the dark before hitting on something is very heartening… “ Margie Lyons
