Right now I'm pouring over Ann Shoket's newly released The Big Life. I had an opportunity to take a peek at it last year, but I felt that I needed to take the time to devour every word, as all good book worms do. One of the things that impresses me about Ann's writing is that it's declarative and directive. As a coach and women's leadership advocate, I'm hesitant to tell women what to do because all of our journey's are so unique. I prefer asking questions that help people to achieve their own clarity. But as the oldest of four girls I'll put my hand on my hip and give straight advice to my little sisters in a heartbeat! Ann is the honest and invested big sister for a new generation of ambitious leaders who want to create lives that they're passionate about.
