I read this blog regularly and truly enjoy it. I find it inspiring to see how women take action and transform their lives by pursuing their passion. It is good to see how listening to your own voice combined with persistence and believing in your goals can lead you where you wanted to be. Thank you for featuring some great example of courage and success. - Marija Bojic, RN BScN MN, http://zumbaclassesintoronto.com/
The reason why I like to read BrilliantWoman blog is because I was an immigrant many years ago. I went through a lot of sweat and tears to establish myself and my family in Canada. I feel sympathy with the newly arrived immigrants, especially women. It is the like-mindedness, been there done that, that makes me like to read your blog. To me, life is a test. You got to do everything you can to pass the test. It is usually in great adversity that we bring out the best in us. My husband past away eight years ago. The first few years after he passed away, I thought I was not going to make it on my own. However, eight years after, I proved to myself that I can. I am independent now, and I am in better shape than I was when my husband was alive. Somebody told me, life is a journey, if God brings you to it, He will take you through it. Be brave and take the test, always keep in mind that you have to pass the test. If there is a will, there is a way. Just focus! – Anne Komaladewi Munro, Sales Representative at the BREKLAND REALTY GROUP, www.myannemunrosales.com

Here, you can also find advice on anything you need. Lot’s of articles and testimonials. Also a Biz Directory of businesses founded by women immigrants which we all sometimes need, and it is always good to support each other.
