Gail Goodwin’s Bio
Gail Lynne Goodwin, known as the Ambassador of Inspiration, has been lifting people’s spirits for years. Motivated by mentors like Jack Canfield, Wayne Dyer and others, Gail realized the importance of daily morning inspiration in her own life. After years of gathering and sharing some of the best available inspirational wisdom with others, she founded Inspire Me Today in 2008 to make the Best of the Best Inspiration Daily, easily available to the world.
After more than 20 years in the real estate investment industry, Gail founded Dreaming Bear Music, a Nashville record label, in 2004. As a result of the success of their co-penned song, Baby Come Back Home, she spent several years managing her daughter, Carly’s music career. Gail accompanied her daughter to more than 100 bases in the US and three trips to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba where Carly performed for our troops. In 2006 Gail and Carly created the ‘World’s Longest Letter’ of love and support to our troops, the Baby Come Back Home Soldier Scrolls. The scrolls reached more than 18 miles in length when they were signed by Congress at the US Capitol building in Washington, DC, just a week before they left to deliver the scrolls to 18 bases on a month-long tour of Iraq and the Persian Gulf.
Inspired by a Marine named Jesse, Gail returned to the US and was determined to follow her dream to create Inspire Me Today. After nearly a year of preparation, Inspire Me Today was launched on April 6th, 2008. Still in its infancy, Inspire Me Today already reaches members worldwide. Touched by Gail’s experience with the troops, Inspire Me Today has donated a one-year FREE Premier Membership to all active US military troops – more than 2.5 million memberships! Gail’s goal is to inspire the world, one morning at a time.
Gail and her husband Darryl reside with their Samoyed puppy, Koda, in Boulder.
