INTRODUCTION

There is something wonderfully spectacular that happens when a group of amazing women come together for a cause, and this anthology is no exception. I have been an entrepreneur for nearly 15 years, and I have had the honor and privilege to have many clients share their deepest most painful and most triumphant stories with me, and I thought that it was about time for me to encourage some those women to share these stories with the world.

As you read each co-author’s story, you will find yourself experiencing a full range of emotions moving from joy, to sadness, to fear, then anger, and even triumph. You will find similarities in the stories of some women and others will resemble your own tale.

When I question women about their resilience, they usually give credit to an external source, the source where their faith lies. I am a firm believer that we must believe in something bigger than ourselves in order to walk in our divine purpose. That’s FAITH!

When I sat with these women and learned about their choices, they often shied away from confrontation, unpleasant memories, or circumstances that left them vulnerable. As I began to dig into their “why’s,” I came to the conclusion that often FEAR keeps us from being whole.

But what struck me most was how many women have gone forward to accomplish considerable personal and professional success, despite previous circumstances. And THAT is the FORTITUDE that will make your soul scream YES!!

It is my honor to collaborate with 20 amazing women, who were courageous enough to share their stories of faith, fear, fortitude, survival, sacrifice and spiritual awakening.

I humbly salute these Ambassadors of Emotional Nudity.
