I love what I do, interviewing and writing blogs for the Bucks County Women’s Journal. I get to hear the most inspirational stories from people – people who are just living their lives and making an impact on others.
I felt that way once again when I met Esther Hughes from BURST Inspirations. She never knew she would end up where she is today.
We’ll have to go back 10 years to hear how Esther’s story began.
Ten years ago Esther was diagnosed with breast cancer. Which, in turn, made her want to make an impact on the world. She kept getting asked to speak about breast cancer, and a year later became a contributing columnist to the Gloucester County Times.
She started speaking and mentoring women through challenges of life – she was just that type of person that people sought out to ask her how to speak, write better, come across better; some are entrepreneurs who want to enhance their business to deliver messages as a positive, polished presenter.
We all face challenges no matter what our life roles – Esther gets joy out of working with women and finds it very fulfilling. And that is why a year ago she started BURST– to help women fulfill their life’s mission.
BURST has taken a life of its own outside of her original mission and it keeps evolving – inspiring women to overcome their challenges, whatever they may be, and inspiring them to have confidence and move forward as better communicators.
Esther grew up in upstate NY and moved to Bucks County where her husband is from 7 years ago. She currently lives with her husband, three children and their really fun, little dog, Snowball, who is king of the house.
Esther is also involved with SistersU (Sisters United), a new up-and-coming group in Perkasie of women who are involved in a lot of charitable and community efforts, as well as Network Now, and the Central Bucks Chamber – Women in Business.
She is also running a non-profit called One Day Living that she started about three years ago to help women who are undergoing treatment for a life threatening illness. One Day Living helps with daily necessities that can sometimes seem insurmountable when dealing with a severe illness.
