This book is for ambitious, high-achieving women leaders, entrepreneurs, aspiring entrepreneurs, and corporate leaders ready to move to the next level. It is a manifesto and call to action for women to lift themselves and each other up by refusing to accept limitations and instead embracing an ethos of possibility.

There are big gorgeous goals that we all need to set. These are so different from goals that we know we can accomplish because they feel safe and tidy. These goals scare us; they keep us up at night—because we fear they are beyond our grasp.

We all know women who are great at achieving big gorgeous goals. How do they do it? What allows them to reach outward, upward, and think expansively? The book explores the possibilities that open when we set big gorgeous goals, and the common characteristics in the women who move towards these.

Through stories and lessons, the book shows women leaders how thinking beyond habitual limits allows us to surpass our current levels of success. It includes Julie’s personal story of becoming a founder of an unexpectedly and wildly successful children’s labels company that started in one of the founders’ basement and was eventually sold at an eight-figure price. And it tells the story of what happened next, when having hit a business high, she found herself at an inflection point, where she needed to draw on different resources to find a new path to success. Julie Ellis shares the lessons she has learned as an entrepreneur and those of several other women entrepreneurs she interviewed for the book. Their experiences impart to readers the qualities that allow us to thrive as women in business, to healthily, sustainably integrate the work of leadership into their larger lives as mothers, caregivers, partners, dreamers and so much more…
