Say Yes: A Woman’s Guide to Advancing Her Professional Purpose
Since women make the majority of purchasing decisions and the female population is becoming more culturally diverse, the business world needs women leaders of all backgrounds to shape the future. There has never been a more critical time for professional women to step out and step up: American companies can’t thrive long term unless they do.
Author Tara Jaye Frank has given women the insights and tools they need for maximum success in this changing culture in her new book, Say Yes: A Woman’s Guide to Advancing Her Professional Purpose. This book offers an inspired and practical guide for emerging female leaders that helps them define and walk their path to professional greatness. It provides women leaders with tools that Frank has found are universally needed, but not uniformly provided.
