More about our guest expert:

Barbara Niven is definitely living her dreams! She’s one of Hollywood’s busiest actresses, and is also a motivational speaker and coach.

She didn’t start an acting career until she was almost thirty years old, putting her own dreams on hold while she became a wife and mother in Portland, Oregon. One day she received something in the mail from her upcoming high school reunion that asked, “Have you achieved what you thought you would in your life so far?” She says it hit her like a ton of bricks that she was only living everybody else’s idea of who she should be. She decided she didn’t want to wind up wondering what if at the end of her life, so despite hearing that it was impossible, she talked her way into a news internship at Portland’s NBC affiliate and sold her first story to network. Then she discovered her real passion, acting, and has been making a living at it, against all odds, for over twenty years. She served for three years on the national board of directors for the Screen Actors Guild.

She says she’s living proof that anyone can make his or her dreams come true, at any age. “Every moment you have a choice ... to move toward your dream or away from it. Don’t settle for less than wonderful in your life — and don’t give up five minutes before the miracle!”
