Goal Oriented 
I’m a very goal-oriented woman, so I set goals for myself. Sometimes they are small goals, others times they are more lofty. I also have photos of strong women whom I admire on my phone and motivational quotes that keep me focused. Being an example to my family definitely keeps me going!

The Metro United Way relies on volunteers to help kids achieve academic success. 

Eventually, Felicia found Metro United Way (MUW) and the programs which have helped her son blossom; this year he will be a high school senior. “My initial struggles followed by the success we found with MUW ignited my passion to help others find resources and connect the dots for their own children.” Today, Felicia serves as the associate manager of volunteer engagement, and broadly spreads the word about all MUW can offer. “There is never a shortage of people who need help in our community,” she says.

A Dress Motivated Karen Zegart

Starting Goal 
My daughter got married four years ago. I ordered a dress that was too small, which prompted me to start training with a trainer three times a week. I lost seven inches overall the first month and by the wedding, I lost 12 inches overall. I easily slid into the dress I could not get past my thighs three months earlier. He tailored the training just for me combining cardio, weights and other training I loved it so much I still work out today two years later.
