Women Driven to Success: You Can Have Your All, by Dr. Jane Goldner

This is a compensated post

Ever since I was a little girl, I've been told that I can have it all.  I was told that if I studied hard, I'd get into a good college, and if I kept studying hard, I would get a good job, and if I worked hard, I could make a good life for myself.  Somewhere along the way I'd meet my soul mate and we'd raise a family and live happily ever after.

Well, I studied hard and I worked hard.  I've got the soul mate.  I've got the family.  I've got the job.  But no one ever told me how DIFFICULT it would be! And I still don't know whether I have it all!  What does "having it all" even look like?  Should I be doing more?  Should I even want to?  It's an age-old discussion that women have everywhere.

Personally, I don't think women CAN have it all -- any more than men can have it all.  And that's okay! Everyone has to make choices in their lives and accept the outcomes of those choices.  That's why I love the concept of Dr. Jane Goldner's latest book, "Women Driven to Succes: You Can Have It Your All".  The book cover actually says "You can Have It All", but crosses out the "It" and replaces it with "Your" -- and that makes all the difference.  Success means different things to different people, and there are as many ways of defining success as there are ways to get there.  I haven't read the book yet, but it sounds great.  Check out the description below and see if you agree!

About the Book
"The 'real life' stories and the practical toolkit make this book one that you will want to keep, refer to and recommend to your spheres of influence!" Women today are being told by successful businesswomen that the key to 'having it all' is leaning in. Dr. Jane Goldner, on the other hand, believes that success is not a one size fits all concept. She states that women can "have it all," but poses the question: "What does 'it all' really mean?" Throughout the book, Dr. Goldner provides the answer that "it all" is different for each person, and discusses the paths women have taken to go from homemakers to "doing dishes, diapers, and million-dollar deals," with many choices in-between. A critical lesson is that before a woman "leans in," she needs to figure out "her all." 

Based on her own life experiences and those of 14 other highly successful senior-level professional women, Women Driven to Success provides examples of role models as well as a tool kit to help women define and live THEIR ALL. Among the many topics that Dr. Goldner covers in her book are: - The need for each woman to define her own CORE, her 'North Star' -Why being 'everything to everybody' is NOT the answer - Learning the skills of negotiation and confrontation - The important difference between taking personal time to stay healthy, and having to take time to be sick Dr. Goldner is a business consultant with nearly 30 years experience. She's worked with multiple Fortune 500 companies, the US Military and with some of the foremost executive leaders in the country. In addition, Dr. Goldner is both an adjunct professor at the Coles School of Business Kennesaw State University and in the Leadership and Organization Development Master's Degree program at PCOM.
