Are you ready to have it all? The truth is women can do it and have it all – it’s not a myth. Women have more opportunities than ever before in the workplace, at home and beyond. By learning to harness your innate strengths, as well as learn from other women’s experiences, you can find the success and life balance that you’re striving for. And you can help other women along the way! Karel Murray’s new book, Hitting Our Stride: Women, Work and What Matters, uses humorous stories, surprising insights and thought-provoking topics to help you uncover the life lessons that lead to success.

Hitting Our Stride is based on the survey results of 168 successful women, and covers more than just the typical women’s issues of parenting and life balance. Combined with Karel’s humorous outlook and “nothing but the truth” approach to life, you’ll laugh, cry and nod in agreement over topics like:

  • How to tackle fear and the unknown
  • What to learn from the reflections of our past without living in it
  • Re-discovering the importance of family connections
  • How to make life-altering decisions and learn from others
  • Overcome career challenges to find success
  • How to deal with the next generation and help them along the way
