Please excuse the tears in this video! When I spoke about the beauty of India I couldn't help but cry. My experiences lead me to open a fair trade shop on my site so that we can combat poverty by helping artisans. Everything is handmade with love. As a model back in the 80's and 90's everything was about how people were supposed to look and what was the trend du jour.
I decided to travel to Calcutta, India with my friend Colleen Saidman Yee (now a big yogini) to volunteer with Mother Teresa to see what real poverty was like, and to serve others in need. I needed a break from the world I was in. What happened changed my life forever. The video is to empower you to see beauty and giving in a different light. Working in the slums of Calcutta, Mother Teresa showed me that beauty is so much more than the physical. (see video)
Attention please! Let's talk about the super of all supermodels of the 80's, which in my opinion, is Nancy Donahue! Nancy is also a super friend and fellow Good Life Gal goodlifegals.com whom I adore. On Tuesday, November 15th at 11:30 am EST I will interview Nancy "live" on bidchat.com/165dawngallagher. Nancy and I share the same birth date, February 16th, and we are eerily alike. She reminds me of the Patty Duke song from the 60's. Nancy can practically finish my sentences.
We laugh alike, we walk alike, at times we even talk alike — You can lose your mind, when friends are two of a kind.
Every week I like to showcase a women entrepreneur. It is my great honor to to feature this weeks entrepreneur, Lissa Schuessler of the brand 724! I met Lissa a few month's ago when she introduced me to her beautiful and very comfortable brand of clothing. Her story of why she started the company touched me deeply so I asked her to share it with my audience. Please use code DAWN if purchasing.
