The Power of Resilience

Look around, the world is filled with inspiration and, inspired people who feel the need to create. But creativity isn’t restricted to artists, musicians, or writers. What would the world be like without the makers, the doers, the inventors? The mad geniuses who can look at a product, piece of equipment or ordinary household item and see it in a new and innovative way.

If necessity is the mother of invention and, resourcefulness is the father, Beulah Louise Henry is the Fairy God-Mother of both. With over 110 inventions and 49 patents, she opened the doors for women in manufacturing, business and marketing while blazing a trail for future women inventors to follow.

​​S he lived by the motto “There’s a better way of doing that”, and she usually proved it. Beulah was smart, savvy, ambitious and independent. Her creative mind and good business sense proved to the world a woman inventor could be successful in her own right. She helped light the way for women in mechanical engineering, product design and invention, marketing, and business leadership. Her life serves as a reminder that no matter what we want to do in life when we trust our inner creativity, silence the non-believers, and draw our inspiration from the world around us, we can, as Austin Kleon so beautifully states,

“Draw the art we want to see, start the business we want to run, play the music you we want to hear, write the books we want to read, build the products we want to use – do the work we want to see done”.

For me, Beulah Louise Henry is the Mother of Invention and the Bright Lighter that teaches us how to harness our inspiration, creativity and innovation and bring our own ideas to life.
