Brenda’s motivation, hard work, discipline, and strategic decisions—on a road that wasn’t always direct or easy—have made the success she enjoys today possible. In her chapter she discusses how her own journey has enriched her life, brought her connections and wisdom that have helped her continue moving forward, and how she started two successful international companies that allow her to share her passion with the world.

Everyone in this book shares two things: Success and Achievement. Together, they share their experiences—successes and pitfalls—in order to help others better understand what they need to achieve their own success.
“As for what drives me, I would say my curiosity and wanting to learn about the world around me! To be successful in today’s world, my advice is to get out of your comfort zone, take calculated risks, and to seize opportunities for continuous learning. Take the road less traveled and blaze your own path.”
-Brenda McGuire, Chief Global Gal
A Sneak Peek Inside Brenda’s Chapter, “Small World, Big Success”
Performance: So how do you define success?
Brenda: For me, success does not equal power, prestige and possessions, but rather the ability to live your purpose and develop meaningful relationships with others in this small world. We are all blessed with different skills, abilities, talents and experiences, and it’s how we choose to apply them in our life and career that will determine our personal success. If you’re able to follow your dreams and do what you love, that’s success. When you pursue your purpose and your passion in life, chances are you’ll do it very well, and other results—such as financial rewards and business accomplishments—will follow.
Performance: You’re often referred to as “The Global Gal” in your efforts to help women take action on their travel dreams. Tell me more about your endeavors.
Brenda: Through my experiences, I realized that women had unique challenges when living, working and traveling overseas, so I founded Global Gals®. I knew I could help women of all ages to be more confident and savvy travelers. Whether women need help overcoming real or perceived roadblocks to travel, or are simply looking for a community of women who are interested in travel, Global Gals provides resources and support.
Performance: For many people, it can be difficult to move from “dreaming it” to “making it happen.” What drives you, and what advice do you have for others?
Brenda: I believe that goal-setting is fundamental to success, but you also need to start with big dreams. Otherwise, what are you working toward? Don’t put limits on your dreams based on your current situation, mindset and bank account. Think big. Be honest with yourself. Then, set your goals and take action so that your dreams don’t sit idle. Don’t wait for “someday” because that day may never come.
