Dare to SOAR: May – June

May – June


Welcome to our first Dare to SOAR post!

Dare to SOAR is Windy City’s focus on goal setting, where we get to support and encourage each other in order to realize our dreams. It all starts with the first step. The goal.

I’d like to give special thanks to Denise Swanson who shared her very own Dare to Soar ideals with Windy City back in January– “Demonstrating inspiration, motivation and perspiration to achieve success,” inspiring Windy City to take it one step further.

Keep dreaming and doing and remember:

Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.
