'Jane Wurwand inspired me the moment I heard her incredible story. She truly started from the bottom to rise to the heights of her industry and she did it at a time when women were blocked from success at nearly every possible juncture. What Jane has shown through her work and her leadership in empowering women around the world is that possibility is everywhere if you keep your eyes open.'--Guy Raz, New York Times bestselling author and creator of the podcast How I Built This with Guy Raz
'With candid humor and concrete insights, Wurwand shows you how to get to yes. Few leaders have the life story and experience that really live her motto 'you are more than enough''--Katty Kay, TV journalist and author of The New York Times bestsellers, Womenomics, The Confidence Code and The Confidence Code for Girls.
'Now more than ever, we need strong female role models to lead and have their voices heard. Jane is that role model to aspire to as you step into the leadership of your own life. And in true Jane form, she is even donating her book sales!'--Gail Becker, Founder and CEO of Caulipower
'I know firsthand the impact of stress and burnout that can come with founding and growing a big life and career. Jane proves that it's possible to build success and still remember what matters - this book shows us how she does it. She and I both know that we each have everything we need already inside us to go for it!'--Estelle Swaray, Grammy winning singer, songwriter, record producer, actress and broadcaster
'I've just sat down and read your book in one sitting --I absolutely loved it. So full of insights and inspiration, and dedication and courage just shines through on every page. It's brilliant!'--Lydia Slater, Editor-in-Chief of Harper's Bazaar UK
'Despite what other books might tell you, you don't need a ten-year plan, an MBA and hundreds of thousands of dollars in the bank to do the thing you've always dreamed of. To live a brave and entrepreneurial life, you must just say yes to your dreams, and figure the rest out as you go. This book will show you that you have everything you need already inside you and anything else can be solved with ice cream.'--Jerry Greenfield, philanthropist, activist, humanitarian, author and co-Founder of Ben & Jerry's ice cream (for which he has no responsibility and no authority)
