to navigate the waters of success.
We are emotional beings; we give
birth and cry at love stories and
want to meet our prince or prin-
cess. But our roles in the world
have changed. We still cry at love
stories, but we now have to learn
to think in a different manner to
get where we are trying to go."
She calls the system she devel-
oped "skilled logic." It enables
women to get away from emotion
and see things the way they really
are, to focus and create possibili-
ties for themselves.
"Once you step out of the emo-
tion and use logic, the roof hold-
ing down your personal and pro-
fessional life will come off. There
is nothing that can stop you; I
mean nothing!" she said.
Beckett recently got engaged
to Jonathan Balbes. As thrilled
as she is with her own personal
and business growth, Beckett is
most happy that her daughters
have become emotionally healthy
young women. Hayley works
for a company that sells books
to colleges. Allie is studying for
a master's degree in occupa-
tional therapy at the University of
Southern California and doing a
month-long internship with chil-
dren in Ghana.
Now Beckett is trying the entre-
preneurial route again. She has
started a company, U Got This,
to teach other women the skills
that took her so long to develop
for herself. She also started a
nonprofit, Stand4lt, to help
women pursue their educational
and business interests by provid-
ing funds for registration fees,
tuition, books and supplies, busi-
ness planning fees, seed money
and office supplies. Beckett is
applying for tax-exempt status so
she can accept donations.
On April 19, U Got This will
present its first daylong seminar,
Find Your Amazing. The program
runs from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. in the
media center at Birmingham
Seaholm High School.
Beckett is keeping the cost low
to encourage young women to
attend. The registration fee is $75
per person — $65 for students
and for anyone who brings a
friend. Registration can be done
through Beckett's website: www.
She'll offer scholarships for
those who can't afford even that
much. Applicants should fill
out the Contact Us form on her
website to request financial assis-
