    a reviewer

    Eavesdrop on any group of women lunching at the next table and you are likely to witness laughter, tears, support, commiseration and collaboration in action. Entrepreneur Vickie Milazzo identifies how women can best utilize these natural feminine capabilities to achieve life and career success and fulfillment. Milazzo dedicates an insightful, thorough chapter to each of the '10 Feminine Forces' she has identified. She uses personal stories and the experiences of successful women to coach you to new, unexplored heights. Sometimes her attempt to motivate through her personal saga crosses the line from inspiring to self-congratulatory. Yet, if you set aside this editorial flaw, you have a well-scripted formula for success. We recommend this book to all women who share a spark, a dream and the desire for a richer, fuller life.

    Vickie Milazzo's 'Inside Every Woman'

    Vickie Milazzo's writing is like having a personal life coach available. I found the book to be very realistic in urging the most unmotivated of individuals into realizing their dreams and setting up realistic plans to achieve them. I am midway through the book in all honesty, but thats whats even more amazing. I have already been changing my plans in my career course, and taking them into action, my plans for weight loss were already in way but this book gave me renewed encouragement and motivation. I really appreciate Vickie Milazzo, for having written this book!

    Absolutely Outstanding!

    I have known of Vickie for several years since I had worked as a legal nurse consultant in the past. For a variety of reasons, my heart wasn't into it. I enjoyed the records review and I was good at it, but I just couldn't deal with the egos and the power plays of the attorneys. I wasn't 'passionate' about legal nurse consulting. I've now been working off and on the last several years as a wellness consultant but just couldn't get over some fears. When I first heard about this book I went to just look at it. I flipped it open to page 63 and read, 'Engage your fears to conquer them.' Reading further, 'Even when we're passionately committed to an idea or a goal, fear can stop us cold.' I do believe that things happen in life for a reason and the words that need to be heard will be said or read. I needed to hear those words! I bought the book and could not put it down. It it well organized and reads well. I won't list everything I highlighted or made note of in the book due to time and space. But I will say that EVERY chapter spoke to me for different reasons. One thing I remember is that women are 'committment queens.' Isn't that the truth? I have started saying NO to things in my life that I'm not truly passionate about and they always find someone else. Again, I could go on and on about what I'm taking away from the book as a woman in business, but more importantly I know I will grow as a woman, wife and mother as I start putting the principles in place. I highly recommend this book for any woman and have encouraged my friends and family to read it.
