Sometimes we don’t yet know the detail of our calling, we just know we’re here for ‘more’, and we heard a lot about ‘more’ in Season Two.  It was a common theme, running through many interviews, as each guest shared their own unique experience of being called to do and be more, in their mission. For some guests, it called into question who they are; for others, there was a sense of looking to the future and how they want to be remembered as a result of the mission they have been chosen to fulfil.

As I look back over the season, there really was something for everyone:

  • Catherine Watkin on how we know if we are a Woman on a Mission
  • Dr Liz O’Riordan on legacy and rebuilding her very life purpose
  • Suzanne Dibble on the ripples of impact we unknowingly create
  • Dr Maggie Landes on stepping out from the crowd when you know you’re here to do ‘more’
  • Emma Barnes on refusing to countenance failure and taking one step at a time
  • Tara Newman on turning struggle into strength by putting mission before money; and
  • Karen Laos on finding her way to freedom so that others can find their voice

In the sharing of our stories and experiences, we encourage other women on a mission to do and BE more when all is going well, and we inspire others in those moments where we simply need to keep going too.
