Journalist Pamela Ryckman has uncovered a groundswell of new women’s groups which she documents in her book Stiletto Network, Inside the Women’s Power Circles That are Changing the Face of Business. She says these networks are sprouting up all over the country in numbers never seen before.

“I thought if this formula was working for so many different types of women, I could share the message and then I could get other people doing it too.”  Pamela Ryckman

Pamela worked on Wall Street before becoming a writer for the New York Times, the International Herald Tribune and several other publications. In her new book she shares stories of women banding together to help other women realize their dreams and support their causes.

We hear about all kinds of new women’s groups at TWE and wanted to share Pamela’s expertise about the subject by excerpting Stacey Gualandi’s interview with her on TWE Radio.  Help us spread the word about this ever-expanding network!….  [Read more...]

Who doesn’t want to be brave? But, how easy is that, especially when facing a deadly disease? Hollye Jacobs gives new meaning to courage in her Silver Pen blog and book, The Silver Lining, with her positive approach to dealing with her cancer diagnosis.

“The unexpected silver lining was that the blog went viral and people from all over the world were emailing me saying that I was giving them words for experiences they had no words for.” Hollye Jacobs

This nurse and social worker learned at 39 that she had breast cancer. When I saw Hollye on CBS This Morning, I was struck by how full of spirit she was when talking about tackling her difficult medical situation.

This month she launched a second book, The Silver Lining, A Companion Guide, which Allstate is giving away for FREE to every person diagnosed with breast cancer this year! For more info click here.

Here are excerpts from my interview last year with Hollye on TWE Radio.  As she says, you can find silver linings everywhere…   [Read more...]
