“The Chick In Charge: Life Lessons, Business Principles, and Inspirational Tools for Optimum Success” is a necessary tool that uses life’s challenges, triumphs, and obstacles to evoke the fire of purpose, vision, and perseverance in the lives of women and entrepreneurs. Incorporating years of struggle, challenges, and triumph from childhood to Corporate America and wisdom obtained from years as the CEO of one of the nation’s largest, woman-owned, full-service security firms, each reader is given the strength to not just succeed, but Take Charge! Many people fail to succeed in life because they refuse to take charge. They waffle, waste time, and miss opportunities. Like Deborah, Ancient Israel’s fourth judge, The Chick in Charge knows her worth and creates her own path to destiny. A keen military strategist as well as a prophetess, Deborah judged with great wisdom and godly insight and people came from all over to seek her counsel and to settle their legal or domestic disputes. She rose to power at a time in history when women were not considered equal with men, much less regarded as political leaders. As Judge Deborah exemplified, making a difference is the true mark of a Chick in Charge. Making a difference in life means stepping up to the plate. It means showing up for duty and getting things done. It means possessing a spirit of leadership and perusing excellence, whatever the cost. And it also means knowing who you are and being proactive in making no apologies for walking in excellence. Yes, The Chick in Charge is flawed and fractured like everybody else. She is sometimes fragile, vulnerable and even weak. She faces fears, rejections and setbacks. But she doesn’t give up. Failure and disappointment usually strengthens her resolve. She is swift, decisive, and determined. She is daring and disciplined enough to do the work, face the critics, and navigate the obstacles, whatever they are.
