About Women Succeeding Abundantly | Survey | Story Guidelines | Story Submission


Dear Friend of Women Succeeding Abundantly National Research Project,

Thank you for your openness and generosity in sharing your amazing stories of inspiration, hope, overcoming challenges and realizing your dreams for abundant success and fulfillment in your life and career.

We hope that this invitation finds you well and extremely excited to tell your story of positive transformation and growth. We welcome stories from women contributors of any age who believe and feel themselves to be abundantly successful, on terms that are meaningful and personal to them. We’re focusing on stories of those women who experience themselves as greatly successful financially, professionally, personally and /or spiritually and have lessons and insights to share with other women to help them achieve their dreams. In this study, there are no formal criteria for what constitutes an abundantly successful woman. If you feel you are, then we want to hear from you!

Ingredients for a Powerful Story to be Featured in the Women Succeeding Abundantly Research Project

A powerful story to be included in the Women Succeeding Abundantly project is an inspirational, true story about ordinary women who, through their specific thoughts, beliefs, actions and choices, chose to embrace their experiences as a way to create abundant success on their terms. This is a story that speaks to all women, and offers insight and wisdom into what it means to live fully, passionately, and purposefully, and have achieved “knock-your-socks off” success along the way.

The most engaging stories are about people who have awakened to their true potential and expansiveness thanks to their unique life experiences and perspectives, and now live full out each and every day because of it.

Speak from your heart and spirit – let it ring out! Your story is vitally important to us, and to the world!


1. We plan to use selected stories that we collect as part of a book and educational programs on the actions, beliefs, and choices that women make to create abundant success in today’s times.

2. The best way to participate in this study is to fill out the online survey questions (see Survey), then submit your story (see Story Guidelines).
