Women’s HER-story Month: Dr. Maya Angelou

There are few people who can string together pearls of wisdom like the Dr. Maya Angelou. It’s not only her words, it’s her flow, her voice… everything. I loved her. I mean she was a beautiful, powerful, eloquent queen and I think she deserves the top spot in our HER-story Salute to Historic Women.

Who would have thought when she was a fry cook….

Who would have though when she was a night club dancer…

That she would have made SUCH an IMPACT as an American poet, or Civil Rights Leader, or be the author of seven autobiographies, or a playwright or….. (you see where I’m going with this)

Do you know why the Caged Bird Sings?

My point is it’s time to find out (and sing!).

Find, own, cultivate your passion and purpose. And if you’ve found it, teach, encourage and inspire others to find their own voice. Maya Angelou is a great, great example of how we as women have the power to make an impact on the world when we do these things.

Below is a compilation video of her 10 Rules for Success. I found it inspiring and hope that you will be encouraged!
