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. She has co-hosted two national television programs - The Potter's Touch with T.D. Jakes and Aspiring Women, winning two regional Emmy nominations. She has a master's degree in applied positive psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, a master's degree in journalism from Florida A&M University and a BA from Florida State University.

Readers will find Burton's writing to be thought provoking and her advice to be realistic. She helps the reader to set attainable goals while allowing them to hash out issues that they are struggling with in the fill-in-the-blank space provided within the book. Why Not You? challenges many of the lies we are fed by the media and modern culture such as, "You're only successful if you're rich."
Burton ends each chapter by bringing it all before the Lord, who we can each find our confidence in. If you struggle with self-confidence and are looking for a way to overcome, this book will lead you down the right path. Readers will finish the book with not only the tools to overcome self-doubt, but with a stronger understanding of their spiritual walk as well.

Life coach Valorie Burton offers this action-oriented, step-by-step guide that reveals secrets to unlocking authentic confidence. Unlike self-help books that lead readers away from God, the author writes, "Authentic confidence is about what God can do through you, in you, and for you."
Each of the 28 short chapters is packed with Scripture and includes personal stories from Burton's life, as well as the hundreds of people she's counseled and surveyed over the years.
She'll help you identify the real source of your fears, learn to speak up, give yourself permission to be imperfect, and stop competing and comparing. After reading this book, you'll feel rejuvenated, ready to face the next phase of your life with the confidence you need to make your dreams a reality.

It took me a while to get started because of my crazy schedule, but I decided to make increasing my confidence a priority. From that day on I would wake up every morning and read one chapter a day.
Valorie Burton organized the book in manageable chunks so that you can focus on one area of self-improvement at a time. Self-improvement is really not the best word to describe it though because she used scriptures and prayers to help us to realize that being confident is not just about self-confidence, because we cannot do it alone. It is all about having authentic confidence which is very much dependant on your faith in how God works through you.
I enjoyed the confidence exercises that she recommended for each day. They were simple and they were not intimidating, but they made a big difference.
