Super Fast Lane Woman…..came to be because, first off, we are woman, and secondly, we all have a lot going on and it just makes sense that we live life in the Super Fast Lane.

We strive for Integrity by Empowering Women to be Transparent. Integrity isn’t about being perfect, it’s about being real. Empowerment isn’t about being pushy, it’s about leading and transparency is just that. Allowing others to see the true you.

What 100 Days of Sobriety and Healthy Choices has done for ME!

First point I want to make is that yes….I allowed a simple pleasure (and many simple pleasures) to become a crutch in my life.
