Sometimes following the passionate path is what spawns new ideas, happy lives and successful businesses. Even if the road isn't discovered until later in life, and you didn't know you were looking for it. We profile three local women who have found a calling and went for it to achieve their dream. "Gaining a new perspective is something that finds you. You don't go searching for it," says Weston's Debra Bendetson of her own new direc- tion. "It just all came to me. I didn't plan it." Equipped with her signature put-together style and the inward grace of yoga practice, this former stay-at-home-mom of three is now all about the quest for inner and outer beauty. She followed her passion and is assisting others in finding theirs through her styling business and teaching at YogaPower studio in Waltham. "I have always had a passion for style and for years was everyone's 'go-to' person for help in selecting everything from a mother-of-the-bride dress to great fitting jeans," she remembers. "My friends started getting attention for the looks I created for them." Deciding to take it to the next level, Bendetson took on her first client as a test— a friend of friend. "She was thrilled, and when people noticed her transformation, my business was launched."
