So many people, women in particular, have a hard time telling others what they have done. What they don’t realize is that this weakness is suffocating their opportunities to advance in business and in life. I attribute the fact that I am able to speak about my accomplishments to having more opportunities to do what I love and in my profession and in the community. The benefit of being able to speak your value is that it opens you up to new possibilities to grow and be a value to the world.
Are there times when you just do not seem to be rising to the top? You have done everything you know how to do but the opportunity just doesn’t seem to be there? The promotion goes to someone else or you have a million dollar idea but no idea what to do now. Success By Acclamation, lays out a framework for creating your success in a way that is at once simple and yet effective for busting past what is holding you back.

“I wrote this book to enable women to look at themselves and understand their value and to be able to speak it confidently in personal and professional settings. I want women to view their accomplishments as the building blocks of their success instead of feeling like they are just working hard without recognition. It all starts being comfortable speaking your value.
My goal is for women who read this is to be able to own their value and be more purposeful in their connections. This book lays out how to develop their personal narrative that will lead them to greater success.”
