See the gal all the way to the right, beside me? That's my friend Nancy Moon, of Moon PR, a boutique Public Relations and Social Media Firm. She's also a very talented blogger, photographer, bee keeper and animal lover.
Nancy invited me to attend the PowerPlay Awards Gala honoring her good friend, CEO of Champion Women an organization that advocates for equality and accountability in sports, Nancy Hogshead-Makar J.D. (holding the bouquet of flowers).
Along with Jennifer Freeman, a New York lawyer who has a long history of representing survivors of child abuse and exploitation, Nancy Hogshead-Makar received the Advocacy Award at the event in New York City this past May.

I'm excited for what the new season will bring and how I will use this inspiration to touch more women's lives... let me know who some of your high-potential people are and what they are inspiring you to do!
