“Women who live their lives as doormats fear that they will be viewed as a BITCH if they learn how to say 'no' and set boundaries with others. So they keep their heads low and allow others to trample all over them. But with this book these women can finally learn how to effectively take charge of their lives and finish on top, while keeping their dignity in tact. Thanks Daylle for an awesome and inspiring read!”
~~Debra Mandel, Ph.D.: psychologist and author of several books including, Don't Call Me a Drama Queen!
“Daylle Deanna Schwartz's newest book, Nice Girls Can Finish First rocks! There are many women in my counseling practice who can use and benefit from the great exercises and information here. I really like Daylle's explanation of how to be a nice girl, yet not become a people pleaser or a doormat. She outlines the pitfalls of being nice to others without being nice to yourself; and she shows girls how to say no, nicely. Nice Girls Can Finish First offers a really helpful self-empowerment tool kit, and the 'notes to self' are keepers. A very useful, practical and helpful book for any young woman who wants to be nice, yet not walked over.”
~~Tina B. Tessina, PhD, psychotherapist and author of many books including, Money, Sex and Kids: Stop Fighting about the Three Things That Can Ruin Your Marriage.
