Frazier & Deeter's second season of Inspiring Women events starts right after the Olympics...in the meantime we're already being inspired.
We began this program last year, working in conjunction with the Atlanta Dream WNBA basketball team. Last year the program featured some amazing speakers, and while this year's series is off to a later start due to the Olympics, it promises to be even more engaging.
So until the series begins we can watch some of the Atlanta Dream members who are participating in the 2012 games in London. The Olympics are filled with women and men who aim high and work long hours over years to achieve their goals. As we watch them compete with all their heart and soul it reminds us of the point of the Inspiring Women series - to focus on what can be done and then go for it.
Stay tuned for more on this topic, but for today we'll conclude with one example of an inspirational woman. Pat Summitt is being honored by the Atlanta Dream on September 5th, when the theme will be "We Back Pat." Just in case someone needs to be told, Pat was the legendary head coach of the Tennessee Lady Vols basketball team and the all-time winningest coach in NCAAbasketball history. That's all history, for either a men's or women's team in any division. Pat Summitt is exactly the type of woman the Inspiring Women series seeks to highlight.
Aim high, work hard and go for it. That's inspiring.
