Starting a business or a project can be downright difficult.
My Afghan Women’s Project started as a delightful inspiration after I attended an event with 14 Afghan women. What struck me most was how different these women—who appeared so much like me—were from their image as victims in the media. I decided then and there to travel to Afghanistan and bring back a broader picture of the women and their situations.
Getting that idea was the easy part. Getting the funding, connections, and a more concrete vision of what I was about to do, was much more difficult. The most important, difficult and transformative thing to me was to see myself as someone who could carry out their dream. Thankfully, I had a coach who guided me through the process and in the end, I succeeded beyond my wildest dreams.
I’ve now given hundreds of presentations on Afghan women around the United States, and I also wrote a book: Gathering Strength, Conversations with Afghan Women.
My current focus is to use what I have learned to help others live out their dreams. I want to play a developing/catalyzing role in the creation of hundreds or even thousands of endeavors.
Transform Your World will consist of a series of online courses that guide learners in overcoming personal issues that keep them from realizing their dreams. Peggy’s signature course, Transform Your Procrastination, provides the four necessary components for your success:
