Friday's Featured Female, #FFF


Today’s Friday’s Featured Female isn’t a true person but it is the company, Hippie Chick Granola, that my blogger friend, Ilene@IleneEvans (aka The Fierce Diva Guide To Life) just launched.


Ilene and I have a mutual friend but through the blogging world (and a shared love of Duran Duran, yoga and running), we found one another.  Once I found Ilene, I found myself constantly checking her blog to see what she had written next.  There’s an honesty, sensitivity and strength that comes through when reading Ilene’s writing that made me feel like she was the high school best friend that I didn’t know I had.


To add to the admiration I have for this woman, this single mother of 3 recently decided to pick up and move herself and her three children from NJ to NC – as someone who has moved across the country, I understand how difficult it can be to shake up your world.  I’m in awe that Ilene decided to do it with 3 children in tow.


As someone who still really needs to get her butt in gear and focus on launching a private practice, I see Ilene and I’m inspired.  Today, I’m celebrating a pretty fabulous female (who will have her own feature post here once her business is up and running) and the ingenuity, strength, determination and entrepreneurial spirit.

BTW, I already ordered one of the blends above.   If you know me at all, you can likely guess which one it is.  Which one would you order?
