Gold Medal Winner for motivational nonfiction, Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards

TURN OBSTACLES INTO FUEL FOR FULFILLMENT AND SUCCESS


What does it mean to become the fire? It means not allowing yourself to be in the fire of life’s challenges, getting burned, but instead using the fire to ignite your motivation and drive, passion and grit. It means not focusing on what you don’t have or can’t do, but instead leveraging what you do have and can do. It means using your differences to your advantage and seeing life’s chaos as fuel to propel your success. Using her own story of entrepreneurial success as well as interviews with ten diverse and successful women, Elisa Schmitz presents ten actionable lessons for putting your personal power to work, with unstoppable results.
