Impact, What Every Woman Needs to Know to go from Invisible to Invincible by Nancy D. Solomon
Not your average business self-help book, Impact! is a ‘total person’ development guide that says ‘who you are impacts everything you do’. It doesn’t focus on what’s wrong with you but rather what’s right with you so that you can turn your potential into performance. The secret to success and fulfillment -both professionally and personally- is that you should stop trying to ‘fit in’ and become what others want you to be; that you can become more productive, powerful, and passionate by becoming more of who you were meant to be instead. Why? Because no longer is there any separation between who you are and what you do!
With step-by-step strategies and smart insight, you will learn how to have significant positive impact in your life and in your career; you’ll learn how to unlock your personal power; live your life with purpose; appreciate your family; identify your greatest gifts and talents; value your failures and learn from them; stand up for yourself; give yourself permission to stand out; and start to ask for what you want. Best of all, you will learn how to be seen, heard and celebrated for being authentic – for being exactly who you are.

With inspiring new daily tools and strategies that follow in the footsteps of Cameron’s groundbreaking The Artist’s Way, this book guides readers in developing a life that is as full and as satisfying as they ever thought possible.
Drawing on her decades of experience working with artists as an expert on the creative process, Cameron shines a clear light on the path to forging a direct relationship between the passion that ignites our creative work and the more practical aspects of living our lives (for example, how one can keep a roof over one’s head without losing track of the soul). In this wise volume, Cameron gives readers the courage and permission to live their lives as they create their art: purposely and fully.
Radical Self Love: A Guide to Loving Yourself and Living Your Dreams by Gala Darling
Let’s face it — entrepreneurship isn’t for a faint of heart.

It functions like a hug and a pep talk from your best friend, reminding you how amazing you are and giving you actionable steps to revive the passion, confidence and–as Gala puts it–“love and sequins” inside your heart.
Real You Incorporated by Kaira Sturdivant Rouda
What’s in a name? Rather, what’s in a brand? Pick up Real You Incorporated if you’re struggling to define your brand. What makes you valuable and an asset to your audience? Rouda has created a step-by-step process to help you discover what exactly it is that you bring to the table, why others may find it appealing, and how to attract that attention. Your sense of self and brand will remain intact long after you turn the last page—Rouda even includes a handy chart for you to refer to, in case you forget just how valuable you are.
Why read this? You want to further define your identity, not only as a business owner, but as your authentic self.
Start with Why by Simon Sinek
Sinek starts with a fundamental question: Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their success over and over?
People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers had little in common, but they all started with why. They realized that people won’t truly buy into a product, service, movement, or idea until they understand the why behind it.
Start with Why shows that the leaders who’ve had the greatest influence in the world all think, act, and communicate the same way – and it’s the opposite of what everyone else does. Sinek calls this powerful idea The Golden Circle, and it provides a framework upon which organizations can be built, movements can be led, and people can be inspired. And it all starts with why.
Vibe: Unlock the Energetic Frequencies of Limitless Health, Love & Success by Robyn Openshaw
In Vibe, best-selling author Robyn Openshaw reveals the difference between low vibration emotions (fear, anger, inertia) and high vibration emotions (love, inner peace, gratitude) and helps listeners dramatically impact their physical and mental well-being by raising their vibrational frequencies. Everything in health and wellness should revolve around the basic concept that what we choose to eat and what we choose to do lowers or raises our vibration. And that makes all the difference.
Vibe explores the foods, natural substances, and lifestyle practices that can raise our vibrations. Robyn Openshaw reveals evidence that shows how drinking green juice, using certain essential oils, and engaging in yoga and meditation raises the frequency of the human brain and other organs. Living in a “high vibe” state can make us resilient to illness, fatigue, burnout, and depression. Listeners will learn all about the low vibration emotions (fear, anger, inertia) and the high vibration emotions (love, peace, gratitude) and how to achieve higher vibrations in everyday living. Openshaw explores how the smallest changes in our life – from what we eat to how we think – can radically improve our mood, overall health, and quality of life.
Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone by Dr. Brene Brown
“True belonging doesn’t require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are.” Social scientist Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives—experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling, and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping a clear path to true belonging.
Feminine Genius: The Provocative Path to Waking Up and Turning On; The Wisdom of Being a Woman by Liyana Silver
There is a particular kind of insanity running rampant in the world that compels most women to stuff down, ignore, or hide parts of ourselves in order to be acceptable, attractive, or taken seriously. Which doesn’t work. It actually ensures we remain unfulfilled, miserable, and at war with ourselves—and that is a war no woman can win. So now comes the good news: There is a path to help you become the woman you are aching to become.
This path is unruly, messy, a wee bit naughty, and audaciously asks you trust the very parts of you that you previously warred against. While this path has no script, map, or blueprint, you’ll learn to use your sensuous, desirous, wildly feeling female body as a steadfast and trustworthy compass. This is the path of Feminine Genius.
Partly an irreverently reverent feminist treatise and partly a non-denominational devotional hymnal to the Sacred Feminine, Feminine Genius just might change forever what you know about your body, soul, sexuality, intuition, and power. Feminine Genius is a provocative wake-up call, nudging you to uncork that fabulous flask and find out just how much magic you’ve been hiding. Because you do have a genie in your bottle—and genius in your body.
Girl Code: Unlocking Secrets to Success, Sanity, and Happiness for the Female Entrepreneur by Cara Alwill Leyva
We know that female entrepreneurs and leaders are powerful and can drive incredible success for the businesses they lead, and Leyba argues that we’re more powerful together when we connect with and support one another. This book is intended to motivate and inspire–Leyba is a life coach, after all–and the stories throughout aim to show the amazing things that can happen when female entrepreneurs combine their powers to make things happen.
The Power of Vulnerability: Teachings of Authenticity, Connection, and Courage by Brene Brown
Is vulnerability the same as weakness? “In our culture,” teaches Dr. Brené Brown, “we associate vulnerability with emotions we want to avoid such as fear, shame, and uncertainty. Yet we too often lose sight of the fact that vulnerability is also the birthplace of joy, belonging, creativity, authenticity, and love.” Dr. Brown offers an invitation and a promise – that when we dare to drop the armor that protects us from feeling vulnerable, we open ourselves to the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives. Here she dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and reveals that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.
“The research shows that we try to ward disappointment with a shield of cynicism, disarm shame by numbing ourselves against joy, and circumvent grief by shutting off our willingness to love,” explains Dr. Brown. When we become aware of these patterns, she teaches, we begin to become conscious of how much we sacrifice in the name of self-defense -and how much richer our lives become when we open ourselves to vulnerability.

The Secret Thoughts of Successful Women: Why Capable People Suffer from the Imposter Syndrome and How to Thrive in Spite of It by Valerie Young
It’s only because they like me. I was in the right place at the right time. I just work harder than the others. I don’t deserve this. It’s just a matter of time before I am found out. Someone must have made a terrible mistake. If you are a working woman, chances are this internal monologue sounds all too familiar. And you’re not alone. From the high-achieving PhD candidate convinced she’s been admitted to the program only because of a clerical error to the senior executive who worries others will find out she’s in way over her head, a shocking number of accomplished women in all career paths and at every level feel as though they are faking it – impostors in their own lives and careers.
This book explains what the impostor syndrome is, why fraud fears are more common in women, and how you can recognize the way it manifests in your life. With Young’s empowering step-by-step plan, you will learn to take ownership of your success, overcome self-doubt, and banish the thought patterns that undermine your ability to feel – and act – as bright and capable as others already know you are.
Year of Yes: How to Dance it Out, Stand in the Sun and Be Your Own Person by Shonda Rhimes
The megatalented creator of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal and executive producer of How to Get Away with Murder chronicles how saying yes for one year changed her life – and how it can change yours, too.
With three hit shows on television and three children at home, the ubertalented Shonda Rhimes had lots of good reasons to say no when an unexpected invitation arrived. Hollywood party? No. Speaking engagement? No. Media appearances? No. And there was the side benefit of saying no for an introvert like Shonda: nothing new to fear.
Then Shonda’s sister laid down a challenge: Just for one year, try to say yes to the unexpected invitations that come your way. Shonda reluctantly agreed – and the result was nothing short of transformative. In Year of Yes, Shonda Rhimes chronicles the powerful impact saying yes had on every aspect of her life – and how we can all change our lives with one little word. Yes.

Sacred Success: A Course in Financial Miracles by Barbara Stanny
In her work with countless powerful, successful women over the last 20 years, best-selling author and financial educator Barbara Stanny found that most women’s problems with money have little to do with money itself, but rather their fear of or ambivalence toward power. Instead of pushing women to pursue financial success in the traditional fashion, Sacred Success seeks to redefine power from a feminine perspective. You can be financially successful without sacrificing your soul or compromising your values. You can have more money, not as an end itself but as a tool for making a difference and helping others. You can create wealth and exercise power by staying true to your feminine traits, authentic truths, and personal mission. Sacred Success is a tutorial for taking charge of your life by taking charge of your finances, and not only growing your money but creating a deeper, richer, and more meaningful life.

There are certain laws which govern the process of acquiring riches; once these laws are learned and obeyed by any man, he will get rich with mathematical certainty.”
This book will guide you in developing a vision, strengthening willpower, cultivating gratitude, and receiving life’s abundant gifts.

Finding Your Way in a Wild New World: Reclaim Your True Nature to Create the Life You Want by Martha Beck

If you love Brene Brown’s and Liz Gilbert’s authenticity and Marianne Williamson’s strong spirit, you’ll adore how Danielle lays bare “boundaries for spiritual people”; the “discipleshit” that happens when we give our power away; a “soul-perspective” on suffering; “overtolerance” and “foolish compassion” in relationships; sneaky self-loathing; and spiritual glamour. And in her poetic and brazen way, she brings it home with the hottest truth of all: You are your own guru.
