In Her Own Words: Women’s Wisdom to Move You from Surviving to Thriving

305 pages3 hours


Sometimes, to get out of a downward vortex of exhaustion, restlessness , and apathy, we need a community of women inspiring and igniting one another.

Alison Braithwaite was burned out and losing herself while appearing to be the very definition of success: working as an executive at a prominent company. She had been shutting down parts of her core self to survive and succeed at work. When she woke up to how misaligned she felt in her career, she quit her job and found nourishment in a circle of women appreciating and celebrating one another. Life became possible again. With In Her Own Words, Braithwaite gathers the stories of twenty women from different backgrounds who have found their own versions of achievement and happiness. By amplifying the voices of other women, Braithwaite shares the guidance she found to be most useful in recalibrating her journey.

If you have ever felt like you didn’t belong and have been pressured into playing small, In Her Own Words will reenergize you to thrive—not just survive . . .
