Karen Dean is an entrepreneur, resilience expert, author, and speaker who has lived her entire life in rural Nova Scotia. She finds immense joy in being a single mom to her three amazing children, in spending time with her cute farm animals, and in sitting on her deck looking out over the beautiful Musquodoboit River and her “little piece of paradise”. Her mission is to empower women to live their best life, no matter what the world throws at them, and to give back in huge ways through projects like this book and her Nova Scotia Strong clothing fundraiser that raised $96,000 to support the families and communities affected by the horrible mass shooting that happened in Nova Scotia in April 2020.
This book is a dream come true for me in so many ways.
It has brought 22 incredible women together in a collection that is sure to inspire everyone who reads it.
It is establishing a fund to help women further their education, therefore giving them the ability to live a better life
... something that I am very passionate about.
And, an added bonus that I was told by many of the contributors, it was healing to put the story of 2020 into words.
Some struggled with it but, you will see, they all managed to write beautiful stories.
I hope this book helps you get through your tough times, empowers you and makes you feel less alone in this crazy world.
