March 8 is the International Women’s day. This day exist as a mean to give honors for women. Their contributions for human advancement are certainly not a small one. As what was mentioned in the internationalwomensday.com, we can celebrate women’s achievement in various areas like politic, economy, and culture. However, we must not forget that the gender parity for women is still an issue in some places around the world.
This year’s campaign theme is pledging for parity, as can be seen in the website
To honor this day, I was able to reach the owner of successdreamsandstyle.com. Her name is Sonia J. Bergeron. Being a businesswoman and single mom, she is a tough and inspiring woman. Surely, she is a good inspiration for every woman to raise their confidence and stand up on their own.
Below is the conversation between me and her.
Q: Can you describe a bit about yourself and what do you do to make a living?
I am the owner of a marketing agency specialized in the restaurant industry and this, for the past 12 years now.
Q: Can you briefly explain about your website successdreamsandstyle.com , what is the goal of that website and your achievement so far?
This is my very first website. It is about me, my personal experiences and opinions in regards to beauty, style and business.
Q: Being a single mom is surely tough! Can you share a bit how you can survive as a tough single mom?
Being a single mom is difficult, yes. However, I have never known anything else so for me, it’s natural. I have worked very hard to get where I am today and I continue to work hard every day. I never lose faith not hope and I always put my children first. They are my reason for everything.
Q: Aside from the kids, what other things you need to focus / improve as a single mom?
I need to focus on being happy and healthy. I need to make sure that I am stress-free so that I can wake up every day with a smile on my face.
Q: What is “happiness” to you?
Happiness is loving what I do. It’s being comfortable in my own skin and, most importantly, it’s being able to laugh at myself.
Q: So far, what is the biggest struggle you ever faced in your life and how you can overcome it?
My biggest struggle was accepting the death of my grandmother. This was when I really realized that life wasn’t always fair. However, it also made me realize that we only have one life to live and that we should make the most of it every single day.
Q: What is “success” to you and what mindset do we need to achieve it?
To me, success is being able to set goals and achieving those goals, no matter how big or small there are. To do this, one must love what they do and must be happy doing it. Too many people hate their lives and to me, that is sad. Success is all about attitude and having integrity.
Q: Lastly, please share a few message to the readers
Never give up on your dreams. Always believe in yourself and most importantly, don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do it. Whatever your heart desires, you can achieve. I know this because that is the path that I am on. That’s the path that I have always been on. My book is the proof of that.
That’s all for this inspiring Q&A session. I would like to thank Sonia again for sparing some time answering my question. If you have any comment about this interview, do not hesitate to leave it below. Happy International Women’s Day
