HOLIDAY SPECIAL

Help a Friend, Help Yourself

Holiday pink slips are horrible. December is the worst time of the year to look for a new job. January has the notorious honor of being the month when the most people are laid off or fired.

Give the gift of emotional support.

For a limited time only, you can purchase signed copies of my book here! Even better, purchase a copy for a friend in need. Everyday I’m hearing from women who are buying copies to send to friends, family, and colleagues who are feeling vulnerable or have lost their jobs. Your support is the kindest gift of all.

Supplies are limited so please act quickly.
