Interview with author Dawn Witte

My greatest advice to anyone is to know your “why” and to never give up. I believe that everyone has a calling or purpose.

Who has inspired you in your life and why?
I have so many role models. I think everyone shows us an example of who we can choose to be whether it is in a positive or negative way. Anyone throughout history who has spread love and kindness are all great examples to me. Working with children for many years taught me so much about life, but being a mom to my own daughters have always inspired me. I wanted them to always know that whoever they choose to “BE” in the world will come back to them; that everyone’s life has challenges and being strong will help them persevere. I wanted them to understand the importance of being grateful for the life they have, to be inspired so that they can share their great passions with the world, and to realize that kindness and love are currencies more valuable than money. I wanted them to always know to be true to who they are and genuine about who that is in the world. And I wanted them to choose happiness because it puts special energy into the world that brings about even more joy as it spreads.

What is your greatest achievement so far?
My greatest achievement so far is raising my daughters. They are both amazing young women who are confident, accomplished, and most importantly kind and loving people. I am very proud of who they choose to be in the world. Another achievement I am very proud of is who I choose to be in the world. I believe that our character is everything and how we are remembered is our legacy. I hope that I am able to leave footprints of kindness and love with everyone I encounter. That is my goal each and every day. 

Do you have any tips for our readers that are trying to break in the industry?
My greatest advice to anyone is to know your “why” and to never give up. I believe that everyone has a calling or purpose. Many of the great religions and philosophies I have studied from around the world believe that we are all born with our own unique purpose and that only we can fulfill that purpose in this world. It is our duty to find out what that is and then advance confidently in that direction, paying special attention to our gifts and talents, the things that we love, and the things that make us come alive. Those are all hints from the universe that will lead us to our unique path and will give us the strength to keep going even when we face challenges or start to doubt ourselves.
