I asked Hope our Signature Spotlight questions, and this is what she had to say:
LBDSAW: Choose 3 words to describe yourself.
HOPE: Quirky, Corny Curator, Resourceful
LBDSAW: How would you describe your personal style?
HOPE: Vintage 80's with a current style blend
LBDSAW: If you are a salad lover, tell me what you'd have in your Signature Salad.
HOPE: Sweetgreen's Shroomami salad
LBDSAW: If you are a wine lover, do you prefer red or white?
HOPE: Red for the win!
LBDSAW: If you were to create a signature cocktail, what would be in it (with or without alcohol works)?
HOPE: Moscow Mule.
LBDSAW: Where is your favorite place to dine?
HOPE: Washington D.C. You could try to go to a different restaurant every day for a year, and still wouldn't make a dent. I love options!
LBDSAW: What travel destination has been your favorite?
HOPE: Thailand. The food, the people...just a paradise.
LBDSAW: Where haven't you been that you'd like to explore?
LBDSAW: What makes you feel the happiest? (Not a person)
HOPE: Taking a walk, sitting in the sun afterwards, and not having to rush to be anywhere.
LBDSAW: What do you enjoy most about being an Author/Bat Signaler?
HOPE: I consider myself a bat signaler for corny women over 40. I enjoy leveraging and sharing my triumphs, lessons, and insights with others who are like me: looking to make the most of our 3rd act of life.
LBDSAW: What advice would you give to someone pursuing their passion & purpose?
HOPE: Niche down. Don't try to appeal to everyone. Leverage what you're passionate about and become laser-focused on a core audience. Your 'people' will 'get' you, and you'll find you won't have to be anything other than yourself.
LBDSAW: What's next for you?
HOPE: In the words of Betty Reid Soskin (the oldest living National Park Service Ranger) I have been so many things in my lifetime.
I'm a strategic wanderer and starter-over. Each journey has yielded so many fruitful experiences.
I'm creating a guide to starting over in your 3rd act, as well as affirmation cards for corny women over 40.
I also hope to be invited to give talks about course correction, and starting over, particularly in middle age.
LBDSAW: How can folks follow your journey?
LBDSAW: Thanks, Hope! We'll be following! - MRM
