About Cynthia

I’m not a fan of traditional bios because they’re filled with labels that tell you nothing about who a person really is inside. For example, I’m an author, a mother, and a businesswoman with a law degree. I was once a 9th-grade-dropout, welfare mom. Does this tell you who I am? Not really. I’ll try to give you a more accurate picture.

I love people who tell their truth, even when I disagree, and those who accept that mistakes and failures are milestones on the path to greatness. I wither around gossip and doomsayers. I believe that life is for living, success can only be defined by the one pursuing it, and we’re entitled to have the life we want. I am apolitical. I don’t discriminate among parties, groups, or religions. I support ideas that bring real improvement to people’s lives. If a healing or helpful idea comes from liberals, Buddhists, conservatives, Jews or gypsies, I’ll embrace it.

If you tell me what you yearn for, you’ll captivate me. I’ve soared to tremendous heights and suffered soul-ripping tragedy. I choose hope, love, perseverance and wonder. I’ve learned that we are far more alike than different and we all want the same primary thing: to be secure, peace-filled, and content. My mission is to help women create loving, laughter-filled, abundant lives (men benefit from happy women).

If you’ve made it this far, let me say that it’s awesome to meet you! Stick around and lets grow together.
