You can -–
Become less fearful and you will fear “less”
Turn your fears into excitement in every situation.
Take on things, challenges, and even people that scare you
Act the way you see yourself — and decide how that will be.
As how you are in one situation- you are in all situations
Your confidence leads to competence & power
When one woman rises, all women rise
When you rise higher, you influence & lead other women
The myths about women & feminists in business are gone.
