Either way, it takes money, relationships, and planning to reach any big goal, and I write about these things 5 days a week.

    Thank you so much for including me on your list. I am very happy that you found my blog. It is my passion and I love it…

    Dear Heidi and the WE Team,

    I am very honored to be a part of such an amazing group of women bloggers. Thank you very much again!

    Even thought the Best of Marbella website/blog is my first “pilot project”, it will become the franchising site. I will apply the same concept for many different places on the Costa del Sol in Spain and connect with other existing “The Best of” places in the world. If you know any owners/founders of other similar websites/blogs, please let me know.
    Thank you very much in advance!

  87. Brian Hersh says:

    I’d like to suggest a blog called The Self-Empowered Woman. It’s at http://www.marilynwillison.blogspot.com/. Marilyn Willison has spent over 30 years in journalism interviewing hundreds of famous and powerful women (and men) for major publications, and she has distilled her conclusions into a forum that examines in detail the relatively few characteristics common to virtually all modetn successful women. Her subject-matter is strikingly diverse, and makes for an instructive yet quick read. And her own story is perhaps the most interesting.

  88. Heidi Richards says:

    Thank you so much for sharing Marilyn with us! WE will definitely check it out!


  89. I read your article and wanted to point you to the SeriouslyShannon.com blog. It’s run by a mom, wife, and fitness instructor. Yes, she’s my wife, but after watching the number of visitors grow on a weekly basis, wanted to point it out. The blog focuses mainly on the latest women’s topics such as entertainment and fitness. It’s actually a pretty funny site. So, if you’r looking for a blog where you can.. well have fun visiting, that’s the blog for you.


  90. Sorry, the link above is broken… it’s SeriouslyShannon.com
