“To be successful, you can not be afraid to ask for help and admit you do not know it all. You can not be afraid to experience incredible failure, and when you do fail – and yes, it will happen, as it has for me and every other entrepreneur or person in business – you have to have the confidence and understanding that failure is part of the process in your journey to success.”

Chapter Title: Finding the Positive
“You can’t always control what goes on outside. But you can always control what goes on inside.”
When the world came crashing to a halt as a result of the historic 2020 pandemic, we were faced with a choice: to let ourselves be swept up in the waves of fear and overwhelm, or to shift our perspectives and evolve. And while this era is far from over, we have already seen incredible leaps of faith, extraordinary economic creativity, inspirational acts of generosity, and so much more.
In this special edition of the WOW book series, 16 women share their real-life stories about how they are moving through the uncertainty we are all facing. Rather than waiting for a “new normal” to arrive, they took action and found ways to pivot their businesses, pursue new passions or renew forgotten ones, and move forward. These powerful stories capture the unique moment in history we find ourselves living in, and show how we can continue to thrive through the challenging times ahead of us.
Each chapter offers inspiration and strategies on how to shift and evolve in your own life, both personally and professionally. We need to lift each other up, especially in times such as these. By bringing these amazing women together to share their stories, it provides a compass for you to navigate through your own challenging chapter and into your fabulous future.
“For that product to become a brand, that idea to become a program, and that concept to become a movement, you need collaboration. It is the antithesis of ego and the drive behind all great things. To achieve this greatness, everyone at the table must have a voice.”
