In 2008, Marci Nault, made a list of 101 Dreams she wanted to experience including: traveling the world; becoming a published author; living in Italy; owning her home outright; learning how to live decadently; and becoming a published novelist. Within five years she’d completed 90 of her biggest dreams and with the publication of her novel THE LAKE HOUSE she began to tour the country speaking to women.
During this time, she started conversations with women about their dreams. The common theme was that it was better to put others higher on their list than themselves. Many had never taken the time to think about their own dreams for fear it was selfish. Others were too fatigue from an overbooked life. Most had been told that they were too old, it was too late, the wrong time in their life, and questioned why they’d bother. Too often the negative attitude came from other women.
