This book will be a work in progress for a very long time. Reading it fills me with both excitement at the possibilities and sadness at the lost and misused opportunities.

I think it is a must for women of all ages who dreamed of stepping out of their boxes and moving on into the completion of their dreams.

Highly recommended.
