Bread and Roses welcomes Della Rae, author of the Little Book of Self-Care.
The Little Book of Self-Care covers all aspects of self-care, including identifying who you are, what you stand for, operating with personal integrity, following instincts, setting intention, extracting lessons from mistakes, love and relationships, dealing with other people, letting go of the past, and caring enough about yourself to live the way you want to be remembered.
Della Rae is a Portland entrepreneur whose passion is engaging people in her hometown to act in concert for the common good. She has launched multiple non-profits, including Sisters of the Community, co-founded with her sister, Deborah Waggoner, and DonorsResource.org. Della Rae has received numerous professional awards, including Regence BlueCross BlueShield Hero Award, Portland Business Journal 40 Under 40 Award, and the Safeco Foundation National Hero Award. Della Rae and her sister, Deborah Waggoner, were featured in Family Circle Magazine as local heroes in 2012.
Through her experiences and successes, Della Rae learned the importance of self care, driven by the notion that to do well, one must first be well.
