This fine book is published by the Women Speakers Association and as an opener, Gail shares the vision of that group: ‘Our vision is of a world in which women are empowered to authentically express themselves; to build a thriving, prosperous business; and feel a part of something greater. A world in which women take ownership of and step into being the leaders they are; using their voice to powerfully inspire others, thus causing transformation in the lives of their clients, their companies, communities and the world.’
The vision thus stated is made manifest in the fifty stories Gail has gathered from around the world – stories of women in all types of avenues who have gained not only stature, but also the respect of their peers and now with this publication, the public! Each story is accompanied by a photograph of the speaker and a brief bio. As she states in her Introduction, ‘I hope you see yourself in some of the journeys and know you are not alone. When we connect with each other, we focus on our similarities. Our shared visions, and our hopes and dreams for a better future…It is important for us to be reminded that our voice matters.’
What follows is a collection of personal, conversational stories by a myriad of women from all manner of cultures and businesses, stories that inspire others to achieve a meaningful life. ‘Bold, brave, brilliant, and making a difference,’ these women prove that women now assume the importance they have earned and deserve! Very impressive and highly recommended. Grady Harp, September 19
Empowering and well written, it is easy to be inspired by the stories. Different chapters will speak to different people and I’m sure everyone can find a favorite within these pages. Each lady who has a story in here is pictured and we are given a way of finding more out about them. This is nice in the instance that one or more in particular inspires you in your life.
I also liked that with each story there was a brief bio and pic of the author. I’ll admit that I got a little choked up on a few stories because it really hit home for me. Nothing can ever prepare you for that moment when you must give “tough love” to a family member or an unexpected health crisis. Sometimes the sacrifices we make for our families make us feel unfulfilled and I liked that author Shalanda Tookes Wilder didn’t stop there. She kept moving along, rebuilding as she went. Overall, great read for any woman in transition, looking for hope and/or motivation.

I found some stories reassuring, and others inspiring. I think Deborah's "Divine Awakening Within" sums up what we can do for ourselves - listen and act on what we hear our inner divine telling us. I know I'm guilty of ignoring what I hear!
These women offer support and guidance, so this is a fabulous resource for personal development and motivation for success.
When I first started reading, I thought this book was just going to be stories about life's struggles.
But then I realised it's more about how within life's lessons you can find your passion.
This book is full of inspirational and motivational stories, and some incredible women who discovered their true purpose in life.
A truly heartfelt book of woman standing in their truth xxx
