Editorial Reviews


"AliceAnne digs into the courage it takes to leverage experience into leadership. Learning from years of ups and downs, trial and error, her story illustrates the truth that any woman's path, given the right mindset and learning attitude, can cause her to take the lead in her life and community."

—Stacie Oliver, National Security Professional and Girls in Sports Advocate

"Hilarious, painfully honest, and beautifully written, Take the Lead reads like a comfortable and uplifting conversation with a wise friend who is imparting poignant life lessons disguised as casual anecdotes.
"AliceAnne's memoir is a deep and relevant meditation on navigating the terrain between the stories we've been told about who we are and the life we choose to live. Loftus has a true flair for scene setting and an arsenal of unexpected, stirring experiences that will stay with you forever. It's a must-read for female leaders, business owners, emerging adults, underdogs, disrupters, world-changers, and anyone else waiting for an invitation to break free from handcuffing beliefs and step into power."
-Maureen Porto, CEO and Founder of Maureen Porto Studios

"This book is raw, honest, instructive, and endlessly engaging.

"Professional leadership coach AliceAnne Loftus's willingness to share her own (at times painful) journey of self-discovery and the invaluable life and leadership lessons she's learned along the way is a gift to absolutely anyone who wants to grow, lead, and confidently step into their own authenticity and purpose.
"This book artfully weaves powerful stories, humor, vulnerability, actionable leadership tools, and powerful lessons from a seasoned and successful entrepreneur. It's a can't-miss read!"
-Elizabeth Harris, MS, RDN, Intuitive Eating Coach, Founder and CEO of Elizabeth Harris Nutrition and Wellness

AliceAnne Loftus, born in the Philippines and having moved over a dozen times as a child with her military family, finally calls Annapolis, Maryland her “home” where she lives with her husband and 2 children. She has been a business owner for nearly 2 decades and is also a business and leadership coach for high-achieving women. While her educational background is rooted in early childhood education, as she grew through her own business and leadership experiences, she realized that through the connection and community of other women, she found inspiration to live the motto “Empowered women, empower women.” Like many women, juggling various responsibilities, AliceAnne balances her roles as a wife, mother, friend, business woman and community leader dedicated to living, loving and leading as her best authentic self.

AliceAnne founded, Bright Beginning Children's Learning Center (a private child care and early learning program in Maryland) in 2004 and Leading Lady Coaching (a coaching program for women in business and leadership all over the world) in 2016. AliceAnne also leads an online community of nearly 6500 women, hosts the Leading Lady podcast and offers workshops and events that help support and empower women in business.

5.0 out of 5 stars An authentic memoir that meets you right where you are
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 13, 2022
AliceAnne’s life experience shared through this memoir reminds each of us that life isn’t what happens to you, but what you do or learn to make life happen. It reminded me not to be the victim of circumstances during a very difficult past few months. Instead I was reminded that life is can be messy and beautiful all at the same time. The biggest take away was re-identifying my core values and aligning all that I do to that. It’s been at least 15 years since I looked at that and a lot has changed in the that time. Thank you AliceAnne for the real, raw, vulnerability in sharing your story!
