“A must-read for every professional woman AND man who manages, works for, or with women. If an organization wants a complete how-to guide to enable women to thrive, this is the book.”Jeffery Tobias Halter, President of YWomen, Author of Why Women
“So many women cannot articulate why they are ‘stuck’ in their career and JJ has helped with her simple focus on how our diversity and gender makes us great! Whether personal or career everyone needs to ‘stretch themselves’ to manifest what one desires!”Jennifer Kirkpatrick Director of Global Enterprise Software at Cisco
“JJ strikes the right balance between woo-woo concepts like projecting the right energy and very actionable and strategic steps to advance your career. The book has worksheets and some really through provoking material - it's something you can go back to time and time again. The chapters stand alone so you can pick up wherever you like. If you feel stuck in your career, this is a must read.”Cleshopaholic, Amazon review
“I’ve re-read this book twice highlighting and dog earing new pages each time. The writing is clear and the content presented in short chapters making it easy to devote 15 minutes to yourself per day or per week. What I like best are the applicable action statements and short exercise that help identify your goals and create steps to obtain them. Anything and everything seems possible after reading just one chapter or the entire book. It’s the type of book you’ll reference again and again.”Amazon Review
“This book is my new bible. Not kidding. I'm using this as my guide right now because I'm so damn STUCK in my career (or lack there of). JJ's voice is clear and gets to the point. This book is finally EMPOWERING me to make real changes. I hear the word "empowerment" used all the time right now, but I find that many times it's just fluff that sounds nice with ZERO substance to truly empower any woman, man or child to do anything other than feel validated. JJ makes me feel like I can and SHOULD do something about my situation.”Noelle, Amazon review
