“Success is not the absence of failure; it's the persistence through failure.”
— Aisha Tyler

This book shows you how to make choices that support exactly how you want to succeed and show up in the world. By collaborating you will feel more alive, while creating bigger and better experiences to see and believe your worth."
Linda Edgecombe, Celebrity Humorist and Hall of Fame Speaker

“Women leaders are a valuable asset in any industry ... [They] lead with a different compassion. And that provides a profound strength of leadership that is actually critical to a workforce environment.”
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.

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.

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.
