About the Founder

Dorothy J. Harden was born in a Chicago, Illinois suburb and raised in humble circumstances in Miami Springs, Florida. She was greatly influenced by a gift given to her by a nun in grammar school that said "What you are is God's gift to you, What you make of yourself is your gift to God." Dorothy believes it and took that gift to heart.

Knowing that education was her way out, Dorothy worked very hard to obtain scholarships; otherwise, she would not have been able to go to college and beyond. She graduated summa cum laude from Wells College, with a B.A. in Political Science/Government and a Minor in Economics. She obtained her J.D. from the University of Miami School of Law, where she graduated magna cum laude, among her many accomplishments.

Dorothy started her legal career with one of the world's largest law firms and later started another law firm. She has her own law separate practice as "Dorothy J. Harden, Attorney at Law" and currently maintains an office in Islamorada, Florida in the beautiful Florida Keys. Years ago, tragedy struck her when she was given two weeks to get her affairs in order before undergoing major surgery to remove a massive tumor.  In her personal life, Dorothy got out of a very troubled marriage and has lived to tell about it. Dorothy studied the self-improvement field for many years and is a living example of what you can do, achieve, and overcome given the proper mindset. Dorothy knows first-hand the struggles women face in their lives, careers, and businesses, and wants to share her experiences and expertise to support other women, break down barriers, conquer fears, and have women really learn to live their dreams.

An inspiring speaker, author, and peak performance coach, Dorothy founded Go-Get-'Em-Girls!, and dedicated herself to helping women take charge of their lives and take control of their destinies, which she considers one of her most satisfying and joyful accomplishments. Dorothy believes in the incredible power of the human spirit. She created empowerment products, like "Spark Your Sparkle -- 5 Steps to Jumpstart Your Life Right Now!" to help women be the best they can be and inspire them to achieve their dreams.
