“For Marion, failure was not an option.”—First for Women
In 1984, battling cancer, watching her marriage disintegrate, and raising two young sons, Marion Luna Brem had to find a way to support herself—and pay off her $500,000 in medical bills. So she started knocking on doors, looking for a job…
“Once desperate…now she’s in control.”—USA Today
One of those doors belonged to a Texas car dealer—who looked at Marion and declared, “I’ve been thinking of hiring a broad.” Today, this “broad” owns two car dealerships, an ad agency, and a stake in a local bank—and credits her achievement to the nurturing of the seven qualities shared by successful women. Now, in this practical, inspiring book, she explains how these natural gifts—resiliency, passion, nurturing, intuition, creativity, self-value, and sensitivity—give women a special edge in the business world. Even better, she reveals how we too can develop those qualities to achieve financial independence, professional fulfillment, and personal joy—and discover the freedom to shape our dreams.
“Although the market is filled with ‘women in business’ advice books, which vary in quality, this one is superb; Brem does an excellent job in laying out important issues and tips for women.”—Booklist
“This eminently inspiring book, reminiscent of Deborah Rosado Shaw’s Dream Big, will find a wide audience.”—Publishers Weekly
“A straightforward and thoroughly inspirational exploration.”—Corpus Christi Caller Times
“A triumph!”—Woman’s World
