“For all the ambitious females who have GLAMBITION, #KnockingDownWallsInHeels is for you!

I learned to shrink-to-fit in life in my 20’s.

I had a passion and a talent for life and career, and I was kicking ass. Thing was, since I was surrounded by #trolls and haters who wanted what I had and who I was.

I started believing what others thought. Looking back, I wish I could have just said to myself, I am awesome and shrugged it off and dismiss it, but I’d wanted to be liked.

What we pretend to be, we have a way of becoming. By acting uncertain, insecure and self-doubting I became exactly those things, and I carried them into adulthood until my ah hah moment.

Don’t just gravitate to the celebrated lie of the princess culture, the so-called eligible bachelors, who are revered and tough-minded and work all the time and may or may not be capable of empathy, who offer a lifestyle, but not necessarily a real relationship.

I hope that, through my experience, you can feed your Glambition and decide to love your life, love yourself and empower your dreams to become a reality. xoxo-Dee

There is more to life ladies and if you have GLAMBITION, so go for it!”

“This book doesn’t release until January 2020, but it’s an important book to include. Trauma changes us. It changes the way we show up in the world. It changes the way we view ourselves. In Success from the Inside Out, Nona Jones shares how an outward appearance of success can often mask inward feelings of insecurity, inadequacy and pain. In sharing her heart-wrenching story of repeated childhood abuse, Nona provides readers with a glimpse behind the curtain of what appears to be a charmed-life.

She was a corporate executive by the age of twenty-three, a sought after speaker and minister of the gospel, recognized by leading publications as an influential woman to watch, and wife of a devoted husband, but many nights she would return to her well-appointed hotel room and feel empty, confused and alone despite her success.

It was only through a revelation from God that she began to build an identity that wasn’t based on the approval of man. An identity that wasn’t tinged with the stains of her past abuse. An identity that no longer needed the trappings of success that left her feeling… trapped. Through faith and hard work, she learned how to rise from her past into a fulfilling future. And she will share what she has learned with you.”
