This book is indicative of her continual dedication and unwavering support for women who want to live their most fulfilling lives.

What inspired me to write this?
Women’s equality and women in the workplace is a controversial issue, so much so that women are under enormous pressure to perform without always considering what they really want. Not everyone wants a high-flying career – I see a lot of women pushed in to — or out of — doing something because of their upbringing, peer pressure and general expectations. We have to arrive at a point where all women can choose for themselves what they want to do, and be appreciated and respected for their choice and their aptitude.
I have worked with too many women that are stressed and frustrated. Sadly, the majority either know they aren’t doing what they want but can’t find out what that is, or, are totally blocked because they aren’t getting the respect and appreciation they deserve from their superiors, ‘bypassed or forgotten’ in favour of their male colleagues when promotion is available.
You will find exercises and tools, including the process I created, SCOPE for Fulfilment in Life and Work, that give women the knowledge necessary to understand their situation, their own wishes and be able to put into place the strategy that leads them to achieve what they really want to achieve fulfilment and success in their career.
The ideas, strategies and exercises in this book will help you discover:
- How to uncover what YOU really want to do so that you enjoy the energy, passion and laughter of a fulfilled, successful woman!
- How to develop your freedom by self-honesty so that you remove stress and find peace and serenity in your choices.
- How to open up new opportunities so that you broaden your high-flying horizons.
- How to develop your strategy so that you create an interesting and fulfilling environment to work in.
- How to embrace the many exciting twists and turns along your road to success – and enjoy the adventure!
