Editorial Reviews

Review

''Susan Combs is the personal epitome of Texas tenacity. The tale of her fascinating life—way-tall girl; Vassar graduate; New York ad agency copywriter; lawyer; rancher; member of the Texas Legislature; holder of two Texas statewide elective offices; mother of three; intelligent pragmatist; wry humorist; and superb and balanced counselor for women—is an eminently readable and enjoyable olio of inspiration, fun, accomplishment, and role-modeling. I once advised her from the rostrum at a large public gathering she attended, that if she had started smoking as early and often as I did, she wouldn't have become so gawky-tall. She swatted me. I forgive her!'' --Herb Kelleher, Cofounder, Southwest Airlines

''Texas Tenacity is the ultimate call to women to take control of their lives and go after what they want unabashedly . . . It's a must-read for anyone in need of inspiration to go out and make their lives happen.''
--Teresa Taylor, Former CEO, Qwest, and Author, The Balance Myth: Rethinking Work-Life Success

''Susan does the right thing for the right reasons. She expects to win and is the smartest person in the room. Her book will change your life.''
--Red McCombs, Businessman, Cofounder, Clear Channel Communications, Former Professional Sports Team Owner, and Philanthropist.

''Susan Combs's Texas Tenacity is equal parts memoir, advice column, and political strategy road map . . . Balancing her passion to drive societal change through her legislative work with her family business raising cattle, Combs walks through the lifelong challenge of creating a fulfilling and productive life that allows room for family, work, advocacy, and volunteerism. Her experiences and advice leave you wanting to do more.''
--Elissa Ellis Sangster, Executive Director, Forté Foundation

''Texas Tenacity is a must-read for anyone whose inner voice ever says, 'I just know I can.' It's a trust in the universe you can't explain to anyone, whether it be society or your parents or a friend. Susan Combs has an unparalleled level of curiosity, and understands that you cannot teach someone to want to learn by doing—it is inherent. As a business owner, I always tell my senior team, 'Give me work ethic and character in new hires, and I will invest my time.' Reading Susan's book confirms that what you hold in your head and your heart should always prevail. Susan provides the inspiration, knowledge, guidance, and most importantly, the confidence to help spur on those who dare to dream big and to act upon that dream. This was a very special book from a very special person—sit back and enjoy the ride!''
--Annie Liao Jones, Principal & CEO, Rock Candy Media

''Susan, in this humorous, winding tale of life, love, politics, and even fashion, gives women everywhere a great path to follow. We all have challenges to overcome in life, but with a little humor and a lot of confidence and tenacity, we can all rise above them and find success. As women, we need to stick together and share our stories with each other in hopes that our story might just make the difference in someone else's.''
--Melinda Garvey, Publisher, Austin Woman magazine

''This book is interesting, fun, informative, and will empower women to know ' . . . if they come to a closed door, they have to learn how to unlock it, or they have to find a new door, or they have to work around that door.' The perspective that Susan Combs puts forth should be read by all women.''
--Toni Anne Dashiell, Republican National Committeewoman for Texas

''Texas Tenacity is a guide for growing the self-awareness needed to recognize your defining moments, and more importantly—to act upon them. Susan Combs is a valuable example of how women can embrace their uniqueness and channel it to find their true talents and calling. After reading Texas Tenacity, you will be one step closer to grasping the hand opportunity is holding out for you.''
--Stephanie Breedlove, Co-founder, Care.com, HomePay, and author of All In: How Women Entrepreneurs Can Think Bigger, Build Sustainable Businesses, and Change the World

About the Author

Susan Combs has spent her adult life blazing trails previously little traveled by women. With a matter-of-fact nature shaped by time on her family's Texas ranch, Susan tackled her years at the all-female Vassar College in a decidedly straightforward fashion. Upon graduation, she worked in high-pressure environments in New York—specifically in international advertising on Wall Street and for a large federal agency, creating a record of success. In time, she followed her heart back to Texas and law school, and then embarked on a career as a prosecutor focused on securing justice for victims of child abuse.
At a friend's urging, she ran for and won a seat in the Texas House of Representatives where she continued her advocacy for Texas children and mastering the budgeting process. She was also running a cow-calf operation on her family's century old ranch in the Big Bend at the same time. Heeding the call to higher office, she was elected the first woman Agriculture Commissioner in Texas history and won praise for her efforts to improve nutrition for Texas schoolchildren. She was then elected State Comptroller, where she applied laser focus to keep Texas finances in line, meticulously collecting taxes and paying bills. She advocated tirelessly for greater transparency to ensure the most honest government possible for her fellow Texans.
Since leaving elected office, Susan has been working on HERdacity, an online empowerment community for women, designed to help them stay connected as they blaze their own trails in business, at home and in the fields of their choosing.
