In our transient, online, culture, it’s difficult for women to meet each other and build the type of friendships we used to take for granted. Who do you share your deep feelings, fears, dreams and celebrations with? Where do you go for empathy, inspiration, perspective and advice? Nancy Shields has a deep caring for issues impacting women and children. She also has a gift of helping women make empowered connections with other women, a natural ability to lift them up, and a sincere desire to see them succeed. She learned, through her own challenging and enlightening experiences, that if you eliminate the perception that things are impossible, possibilities open, and infinite opportunities arise! Join us to hear about Nancy’s generous and empowering vision for women, including her free website MakeGirlfriends.com and her dream to establish transitional housing for abused women and their children. We all have a passionate and inspirational dream in us! Awaken yours! Nancy Shields has a passion to create a better world by connecting and inspiring women. She is the creator of MakeGirlfriends.com, a social networking site where women meet.share.inspire one another. Nancy's inspiration came 2 years ago when she learned her husband was having an affair. Her choice; become a victim or turn a negative into a positive? So she positively packed her bags and took off to the other side of the country. Once home, Nancy recalls a conversation with a girlfriend about the nightmare of dating. What if we could connect women with other “girlfriends”? The concept of MakeGirlfriends.com was born and in action. It really works! Nancy encourages women to share their inspirational stories and connect. Without our “girlfriends” in life, it can get tough out there! You never know how many lives you will touch by sharing your story!
