A POWERFUL NEW YEAR MESSAGE FOR WOMEN:

Now More Than Ever,
You Must Realize Your True Value

"The life you've led has prepared you for the life you dream of."
-Congressman Marsha Blackburn

Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn invites women everywhere not to quietly crack open the door of opportunity, but to kick it down, take it on and make it happen. "As women, we tend to compare ourselves to others and undervalue the talents we already possess." says Blackburn. "Mom was right though, there will always be someone richer, smarter, prettier, and more talented, but no one else is uniquely you."

In her new book, Life Equity (Thomas Nelson, January 2009) Blackburn encourages women to use what is "uniquely you," and bring their mighty powerful leadership skills to the table. "It's not about demanding our rights. It's about deploying our gifts," writes Blackburn. "In a day in which we face unprecedented challenges - locally, nationally, and globally - far too many women leaders are standing in the shadows."

The good news is that your readers don't need to drop everything and go get a PhD at Harvard to become effective leaders. In fact, Blackburn maintains, leadership is a transferable commodity - that using the LIFE EQUITY women have already built up can bring about the kind of real change that people desire. We're talking about the ordinary, everyday experience. The mundane equips us for the magnificent.

Why is so much talent not in the game but rather on the sidelines? Blackburn says it's because women are such natural team leaders and consensus builders, many may simply view a strong desire to lead as, well, a bit rude. In addition, there are some common myths that need to be eliminated.
