"Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves"
~ James M. Barrie
Mustangs were the original wild horses of the West. They are tough, agile, quick to learn and unwilling to run with the herd. Today's Mustang Sallies question the rules, challenge the status quo, and dare to make a little noise. Fawn Germer has written an engaging, provocative guide for women determined to charge ahead and succeed on their own terms. Based on original interviews with more than 50 world-famous trailblazers, from Hillary Clinton to Erin Brockovich to Martina Navratilova and Susan Sarandon. Now, every woman can harness the tools to becoming a Mustang Sally. Fawn Germer encourages women to be comfortable with discomfort, don't sell out or compromise, win arguments without making enemies, manage the emotional challenges of leaving the herd behind and to create a sisterhood of support. If you've ever felt judged and isolated at work for being who you are, this book offers support, encouragement and strategies for coming through with your self esteem and your goals well intact.
Through exclusive interviews with luminaries in every arena--from medicine to government, from business to entertainment--"Hard Won Wisdom" shares the insights of 50 women who have succeeded in their chosen fields and in life.
