Twelve women who have risen to the pinnacle of their professions share their inspirational stories in “Extraordinary Women” due for release on 24 May 2018. The book charts their progress on their way up to the top — overcoming challenges such as bullying, abuse or prejudice — and showing how they dealt with moments of self-doubt and crises.
Many of the women have transformed personal tragedies into triumph. One of them set up her business in hospital after her daughter fractured her skull. Another started her business after her baby son almost died. Each story reveals reourcefulness and ingenuity in following their passion — in spite of naysayers predicting that they wouldn’t make it.
Publisher, Stephanie J. Hale, of Powerhouse Publications says: “This book has already changed my life in three momentous ways before it’s even published. I won’t share with you how as I don’t want to spoil the book. But be warned that this is powerful stuff: if you read it, you won’t be the same person when you finish. This book will help you change your career, your business, your finances and your relationships.”
