Tour Offers Women A New Way

Tour Offers Women A New Way

They said it couldn’t be done… and I wanted to see if I could.

That’s what she told me. Marvelously sassy, don’t you think? My inner-teenager shrieked with joy for her rebellion. She is Robin Rice and I was asking about her ‘Awesome Women Hub’ page on Facebook (which enjoyed a 15,000 woman strong following after only eight months). My page is nearing 600 strong in about the same about of time. So, naturally, I pulled the old inquiring-minds-want-to-know move and was further confused by what I learned. She isn’t selling to them. She isn’t making money from the page. It isn’t about building numbers for some future purpose. Genuinely intrigued, I said, “Don’t get me wrong, Robin, I’m grateful you did… I love the HUB but, what was the point? I mean, why did you do it? Why did you start the Awesome Women Hub?”

They said it couldn’t be done… and I wanted to see if I could.

Well, if I could bottle that spirit, certainly I’d be a very wealthy woman by now but that is the essence of Robin Rice. She is an innovator and that whole I wanted to see if I could thread weaves throughout all that she creates. Her books—currently four novels categorized as “living fiction”—feel alive when you’re in them (as opposed to reading them, which is what I normally do with books). My favorite, A Hundred Ways To Sunday, is about Mary Margaret Hathaway and her mostly rebellious spiritual journey to discover and embrace the truth of who she is (my recap, not Robin’s).

Reading that book is a lot like watching two movies, one where the main character is Mary and in the other it’s my story, at the very same time. Every discovery she makes, I make. Every lesson she learns allows me to learn something new about who I am. The experience feels truly magical. So does studying with Robin in either of the courses she is currently teaching—a Daily OM course called The Most Beautiful You EVER… and Walking In Two Worlds: Illumination of “The Way” For Women As Taught Through Contemporary Applications Of Shamanism, Taoism & Alchemy, both available online at BeWhoYouAre.com. I am not an Up Tribe Media (another of Robin’s professional adventures) client but I know a few women who are and they reassure me that Robin’s magic abounds there, as well.

The Awesome Women Hub allows Robin to empower women, to give us the gift of personal empowerment. Rather than trying to do it all for us, she teaches us how to connect with one another, share, and cultivate community by offering support to others, and asking for what we need. The community works because of this (from the HUB’s info page): While it is normally considered tacky to self-promote on other people’s pages, if you are an awesome woman with a positive message, I invite you to post on this page. We awesome women want to find our tribe members… and that means you! We consider this the generosity model of doing “biz” and it resonates with the feminine soul.

We share. We connect. It works. This is the new way of being that I spoke of in my last article… for business and also, for life.

Robin Rice is quite a special woman as is Christy for bringing this to our attention and continuing to light another candle. We can all benefit from this resource when we need support, help, a shoulder or sage advice. May we continue to be good women, nurture good women and raise good women!

Thanks! Going to check out that page the next time I log onto Facebook and since I'm in Orlando, maybe I'll join in when the Tour is here.

Marie W., I don't know of a better way to fight the "War on Women" than to empower women and that's what this is all about.

Time would be better spent fighting War on Women.

If I am in town, I would love to give them a tour of LA off the beaten track! I am a professional Travel Facilitator-Interpreter!

I look forward to meeting them in my town whenever they come through.
