Julie and Julia

We watched this movie several nights ago starring Meryl Streep as Julia Child and Amy Adams as a woman struggling with aspirations of becoming a writer.
If you haven't heard of it or viewed it, you can google it to find out details about the storyline.  There are many scenes involving cooking, but the story tells more.

 While taking it in, hundreds, no, thousands of women who I have met personally and through neworking sites and blogs came to mind.  Not discarding the men.  I'm sure there are many who fit the category.  It's just that I've had more open, honest discussions with more women about issues like this. Once you see the movie, you'll understand better.  I don't want to turn this into a review.  Without giving away all the details, Amy's character Julie is cooking 500 some odd meals from Julia Child's co-authored cookbook and blogging about it as a self help method to inspire herself and become a published author. The scenes flip to Julia Child living in France and her experiences moving from bored housewife to the well renowned French cook we watched on television for years.

These are two very different women from very different worlds, living very different lives, with very different reasons.  The common among them is what brings my networking and direct selling friends to mind.  Each of the characters learned everything they possibly could about their endeavors, each challenged herself and each remained very determined,  Meltdowns?  Yes you'll see a few of those mixed in the scenes too. You'll also see they get a bit sidetracked at times, prioritize a little foolishly, and thoroughly enjoy the smallest of accomplishments on their way. It happens, right?

It really does happen in the building and growing process of our ""Dreams"" of being, changing or finding.  Not everyone becomes world renown like Julia Child, of course.  Still, there are many amazing experiences along the pike.  If you are a direct seller of any type, try watching this movie and pick out one thing that has happened through your career that corresponds with an experience, feeling or notion of one of these women.
You never know, you could learn something about yourself.

Bon Apetite!
