Caitie Whelan (pronounced WHALE-in) is the Noter-in-Chief for the The Lightning Notes, a website that delivers short daily post to help us move the world forward. It features striking stories and great ideas to remind us that we matter and improving the world is our matter.

Caitie is not a writer by trait. Not long ago, she was a Senior Foreign Policy Advisor in Congress. After four years,  she decided it was time to take a dream deferred and put it out into the world.

In Part 2, we unveil the journey of Caitie’s departure from Washington, D.C. to Brooklyn, New York.  Transitioning from a comfortable life, envious career, stable income to what she calls “a total White Belt”.  Caitie discovered the magic of having abundance in other parts of her life such as creativity, inspiration, entrepreneurship.
