Excerpts from various chapters: While it may seem implausible, it certainly is possible for women to steer our planet toward a healthy, peaceful and sustainable future. When enough of us heed the call and come together in spiritually-centered circles of support, we can change the world. - from the chapter by Jungian analyst Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D. * There is a word I can't stand: fine. Women use it over and over again, and rarely mean it. "I'm fine," "Everything's fine, thanks," "Never mind, I'm fine, I'll just do it myself." Pay attention to the way men talk. I find that, generally, men don't use the word "fine." Men are better at saying, "This is a problem I have that I don't know how to answer," or "This is where I need some help." Men are better at reaching out and seeking assistance. I think that the more we create environments where women have permission to solicit help, we will see a profound transformation among women entrepreneurs. - from the chapter by Sandra Yancey, entrepreneur, author and founder of eWomen Network * The beauty of being bold for others is, the more you do it, the stronger the muscle. And soon, you can be bold on behalf of yourself, too. I've seen that the chance of something incredible happening is so much greater than any of my concerns and that chance gets me over the edge of my fear. The same is true for you. I'm a "regular" person who is finding it in myself. You can, too. - from the chapter by Andrea Herz Payne, noted philanthropist and co-founder of Aid Still Required (ASR) * As our roles as women continue to shift, it is my hope that all women, especially those who are in dual-income marriages, or in the position of earning more than their partners, look beyond labels to find their true value and their deepest desires. Be honest with yourself. Make agreements and decisions consciously, cooperatively, and in leave room for the "you" that is yet to come. - from the chapter by Joy Leach, executive coach and author * Once your intuition starts to speak, you need to act. When you are living your passion, it won't feel like work, because whatever it is, you'll love doing it. No one will have to force you out of bed in the morning if you're trusting in yourself and your dreams. Your intention is a grounding, energizing force that makes anything possible, even the so-called "impossible." - from the chapter by Mai Lieu, inventor and entrepreneur About Kimber Lim, Presenter In her 25 years as a business coach, speaker and entrepreneur, Kimber Lim has shared her formula for having a wildly successful life and wildy profitable business with entrepreneurs and CEOs all over the world.
