20 Journaling Prompts to Help You Dream Big

This inability to dream big is usually because of unfulfilled dreams in the past, disappointments, or putting others' needs before your own.

A Glimpse into My WHY

Having a compelling WHY is so important. It's what keeps you motivated and working toward your goals on those really hard days, those days that you don't "feel" it, and it gives you that extra push on the days when you're feeling great. Eleven years ago when I started iBloom, my WHY was a desire to make a difference in women's lives. Then, it was also to provide for my growing family.
