Blooming Betty had the pleasure to sit down and chat with the amazing, Kathy Buckworth. Kathy is charming and funny as she shares her perspective and insight on all things SUCCESS… the good, the bad and the ugly, but most importantly how she defines success for herself … heck, she even writes goals!
Please welcome Kathy as our first interview in Blooming Betty's new monthly series 13 Women, 13 Definition of Success. The women you will meet in the weeks to come have all chosen a path for themselves that is based on knowing what works and what is right for them. These are "everyday" women, women that understand that life is about choices, some hard, some easy and some yet to be made … but in order to make these choices you need vision, self awareness, confidence and a sense of humour. Watch, learn, enjoy and be inspired… and of course, tell us what you think through commenting on our site.
