TORONTO, April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Women's corporate and entrepreneur leadership coach, Andrea Carter, shows business women how to lean in, get what they want and enjoy life in her new book, "The Wealthy Woman Warrior" due out this winter.
"Protective emotional armor has been worn by women as the number one fashion accessory in our society because to have it all, women have been taught that their suit of emotive armor will deliver it to them," said Andrea Carter, an award-winning business coach for corporate women and entrepreneurs.
"The message that 'women can have it all' has distorted many women's approaches to their lives and careers. Taking a masculine approach to what she should do, based on old paradigms and models is no longer serving her," said Carter, the founder and CEO of Wealthy Woman Warrior a wildly popular and uniquely crafted series of programs that have helped countless women exceed their own expectations, re-invent what they believe possible for themselves, and take the lead in their lives and careers.
Yet women are trying to play masculine roles at work and then feminine roles at home. This means women are no longer able to just be women. This old combination that has been creating an impossible situation leaving women feeling like failures, frauds and as if nothing they do is ever good enough.
"When women act without purpose things rarely go in their favor. If a woman doesn't have purpose, passion and connection to their specific vision, values and goals it will ultimately cost them in terms of love, life or health," she said.
Unlike other feminine leadership books, this one shows women how to discover the deep language and hidden power that has stories, beliefs, motivations, fears, courage and perspectives all embedded in her personal style. Then the reader will see how eight strategies will set her free from her conditioning so she'll be able to step into being the empowered feminine leader of her life and career.
The eight strategies are:
- Identify and release the limiting story and behaviors keeping you stuck.
- Reconfigure how diversions, distractions and disconnections keep patterns in place.
- Discover the feminine art of connection and the true power it holds.
- Redefine beauty, brawn and brains.
- Remove the emotional armor while remaining empowered.
- Get your sacred skin in the game.
- Dive into feminine intuitive intelligence.
- Connect to your emotional IQ.
This book emphasizes the natural need to experience emotion as a feminine trait that has always existed but has never been harnessed in a truly beneficial and positive way.
"The unfortunate current situation is that women are learning to suit up with armor, do whatever it takes to get the job done, sacrifice their values and beliefs, negate their feelings, desires, and passions - all as a trade off for a glimmer of wealth.
Women who embrace their intuition, emotions and imperfections step towards empowerment and leading from a place of strength and confidence they can't otherwise experience. It means that instead of having to bully, drive, push and force situations to happen, they take place with fluidity and intentional focus.
"This book is meant to help women discover what makes them happy and inspired to take a different course of action. She will learn to value her need for fun and joy and love while thriving in her career, instead of in spite of her career," she said.
Women will discover that they do not have to trade in joy, love and fulfillment for blood, sweat and tears to reach the peak of financial success. Instead, she gets to playfully, curiously and passionately create her own path to health and fulfillment.
