"My daughter and I were like the Forrest Gumps of mountaineers, she said describing how she, Cheryl Bart, and her daughter Nikki started exploring the world more than 16 years ago. Remember how he ran, and he said he might as well keep going? Well, that’s how it began. We did Kilimanjaro together, and then we did another mountain, and thought that was fantastic, and we thought we may as well do another one, and then, suddenly there we were doing Everest....

Cheryl and her daughter were the first mother-daughter team to reach the 8850-metre summit of Mount Everest....

Ms Bart says she is often asked if she has a death wish. But the daughter of concentration camp survivors says she is greedy for the desire to do things denied to her relatives who died in the Holocaust."

    "I want to show the world I can do it. I want to show women who look like me that they can do it, too." Lhakpa was the first Nepalese woman to summit Everest and descend alive, which she accomplished in the spring of 2000. With nine summits, she holds the world record for women. She plans to summit the world’s highest mountain again in the spring of 2020, but as an unsponsored athlete and single mother of three, it’s difficult to afford training and travel. She currently works at Whole Foods washing dishes, making minimum wage. Lhakpa Sherpa summited Everest eight months after the birth of her first child, and again while two months pregnant with Shiny. Now a teenager, her daughter Shiny says of her mother: ‘I’m proud of her, but I worry.’ https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/oct/31/mount-everest-lhakpa-sherpa-climbed-nine-times-world-record

    AdventureWomen invites women to challenge themselves physically and mentally while exploring the world at their own pace and on their own terms. Judy Wineland acquired the company with her daughters Erica and Nicole in 2016. The founder was the late Susan Eckert, a pioneer in women’s travel. Women have always looked to stretch themselves further through travel, in mind, body and spirit.

    Maryann started her business, Pearl River Florist, 38 years ago. After graduation from college, my daughter Stephanie joined the business. And it’s been madness, sometimes every day, ever since. But neither would change the situation. Best thing about working together? Steph: " I get to see my mom every day." Maryann: " I am lucky to be the mother and co-worker with the most amazing person I know." The worst thing about working with each other? Steph : "Sometimes we can get on each other’s nerves." Maryann : "Sometimes we can get on each other’s nerves, but mostly nothing is the answer for me." What is your typical day at work like? Both:  "Crazy!" How do you inspire each other? Steph:  "My mom is nice to everyone, even when she doesn’t want to be. And she makes an example of her charity every day." Maryann:  "Steph’s honesty, drive, commitment, compassion,and she teaches me something new every day." What have you learned from your mom? Steph:  "To learn from my mistakes whatever it is, it will not be the end of the world and it all works out... eventually." Has either of you ever considered another career? Both:  "Sometimes every day!"
