What do you do when you need a little inspiration? A nudge to get you going? Reassurance that you can make it work? Affirmation that you are enough?

Arianna Huffington said at the 2012 Pennsylvania Conference for Women that “if anybody here thinks that maybe they are too small to be effective, all I have to say is that you have not spent a night in bed with a mosquito.

She spoke about perseverance, imagination, redefining success, prioritizing self-care and reconnecting with our inner wisdom. She said that social media gives everyone a voice and exhorted the crowd to use it, and gave out her email address.
