The Strength Found Inside Every Woman

Women have passion, and in unleashing that passion, we can succeed, says Vickie L. Milazzo in her new book, Inside Every Woman: Using the 10 Strengths You Didn't Know You Had to Get the Career and Life You Want Now. A true pioneer, Vickie molded the legal nurse consulting profession and founded her own multi-million dollar company. In her book, she tells other women how they can tap into potential that they may not know they have to achieve the career and life they want.

Vickie's approach lies in utilizing the ten strengths women often suppress: fire, intuitive vision, engagement, agility, genius, integrity, endurance, enterprise, renewal, and female fusion. To unleash these forces, Vickie guides her readers through a series of exercises to find their passions. Then, Vickie implores her readers to make five promises:

  1. Live and work a passionate life;
  2. Go for it or reject it outright;
  3. Take one action step a day toward my passionate vision;
  4. Commit to being a success student for life;
  5. Believe as a woman I really can do anything.

With these rediscovered passions and five promises, Vickie then explains the ten forces with examples from her own experience, as well as anecdotes from successful women who have made their dreams a reality. While some of the advice and exercises feel like a typical self-help book, Vickie's overall message is an empowering one, worth exploring.

Note: I received this book for free as part of a marketing campaign, and I found it to be very interesting.
