"One of the best books for women that I have read. It takes desires and dreams and shows you a step-by-step practical way to achieve them. For any woman who wants to do more than talk about changing her life, a road map to her goal."
Sonya Friedman, Ph.D. "Sonya Live" on CNN
Why do some women seem as if they have it all together? Because they do. Do you? Or do you frequently second-guess yourself at work, at home and in your relationships? You're not alone. Faced with a wave of increasing demands, many
women are in the same boat, either drifting aimlessly or drowning in doubt. If you feel
yourself going under, grab hold of The 10 Smartest Decisions a Woman Can Make Before 40
This no-nonsense guide shows women how to stop being led by life, and to create the futures they want for themselves by making some fundamental choices. Readers will follow the lives of eight diverse women who learn "and live" "The 10 Smartest Decisions" that every woman can make to improve her personal, professional and
financial situation. A series of practical exercises guides women through implementing priorities, maintain motivation, discover their Wise Woman within and acquire the education they need to fulfill their promise. For any woman who's ever felt on the losing end when it came to making decisions, this guide levels the playing field!
What woman wouldn't want to know how to play the game of life by age 40? And for those over 40,
retracing their footsteps is not such a bad idea either. Tina Tessina sheds light on the concerns of women with much dynamism, confidence and authority on the subject.
We are entering the new millennium -- women today are more educated, more well paid, and more in control of their lives than their mothers and forebears ever were. Surely these are capable women who know how to make their own decisions. They are single parents, corporate executives, or working professionals who are technologically savvy, informed and media aware. Why should they need a book about making decisions?
In years of psychotherapy practice, teaching, leading workshops, lecturing and watching family and friends, I have seen many people of both genders struggle with decisions. Even the most educated and aware men and women often hesitate when making both long-term and short-term decisions, and many more are very uncomfortable being decisive at all.
Much has been written about the pressures put on men, leading to stress, burnout, heart attacks and other physical and emotional problems. Less is heard about how difficult decision making can be for today’s women.
With new technology and conveniences, life is lived at a faster pace than it was for previous generations and it is much more complex than it was for our grandparents, or even our parents.
Today’s women face a myriad of questions: Do I wait to have children and focus on my career? If I do have children, do I choose daycare or do I quit my job to care for them?
This book is offered in the spirit of sharing the experience that years of working and living have taught me. Here is the information that years of counseling has taught me most women need. As you learn to make and implement these decisions, I know you will soon see the benefits and results in your own life.
This book presents the decisions clearly and concisely, paying you the compliment of assuming that, if you are intelligent and assertive enough to buy and read a self-help book, you can implement the suggestions within it. It does not take the attitude that you will of course do what it recommends but rather presents an intelligent and well-developed argument, based on experience and illustrated by women’s stories, for why it works.
