Who Is Modern Athena?

She is everything. She is mother, wife, lover, caretaker, business woman, entrepreneur, gardener, chef, athlete and artist.

She is the culmination and combination of everything it is to be female. She is smart, sexy, and strong — all at once. She does not deny she can be all these things.

She knows she is worth it. She is proof that anything is possible.


This weeks post highlights a new web-site from a professional peer of mine named Becca Borawski. Her mission with this website is to bring together a community of women who are the Modern Athenas, the Renaissance women, and offer tools and inspiration. Visit her new web-site  HERE
