In the summer of 1999, Valorie had an epiphany that confirmed her life purpose to inspire women to live more fulfilling lives. She was on a career path that looked successful but was unfulfilling, and despite her fears, Valorie took a leap of faith to pursue her dreams. The transformation has led her to write eight books, including Successful Women Think Differently, What's Really Holding You Back?, and Your 5-Minute Personal Coach.
Valorie helps readers and leaders discover their purpose and create a vision that's true to who they are. She helps people persevere until they reach their goals, even in the face of challenges, fears, and doubts. Her expertise shows how to coach yourself by saying "yes" to what matters and "no" more often. The result? People find the freedom to live the life they previously only imagined.
Valorie's transparency and blend of personal stories, faith, and psychological research is engaging and practical. She is a columnist for Ebony Magazine and a frequent media contributor who has appeared in and on CNN, HLN, Dr. Oz, Oprah Magazine, Oprah Radio, The 700 Club, Essence, The Los Angeles Times, and many more.

I stumbled upon Ms. Burton's site, through Black America Web, and after perusing her site and signing up for the e-newsletter, I purchased this book. From the first chapter I experienced all kinds of breakthrough. I purchased more and gave them to my friends and now we have a group that gets together every week to fellowship about the book.
The author has explained the facts of how to succeed in life in a way for everyone to understand. And my personal favorite are her references to the bible. Not only do you get a jolt of energy to succeed but she gives you a verse in the bible that confirms Gods word for you to succeed in that area.
This was a pleasant read that really made you think. She is very insightful. This is a book that can be read over and over again.
Great job Valorie.
I highly recommend this book to people who would like to move through any obstacles in any area of their life. Valorie will help you understand that the fear you have that is holding you back is: (1) actually devoid of power over you and (2) can be pretty simple to overcome with God and a plan! I have personally read the whole book through once, and am now actively journaling and doing all of the things that she suggests to do in each chapter. I plan on giving many copies of this book as gifts to my friends and family.
