Empowered Women Helping Others
A Book with Advice from the Front Lines of Life.
“Today’s habits determine tomorrow’s future”
Why We Wrote This Book
GREAT ADVICE from women willing to share their ideas to HELP OTHERS meet today’s challenges and OPPORTUNITIES.
2020 was a rough year for most of us. Stress, fear, and worry were all too familiar. My husband and I want 2021 to be brighter and a much less stressful. We asked hundreds of women one question:
WHAT WAS THE BEST ADVICE YOU EVER RECEIVED?
The Empowered Women Helping Others book is a collection of over 200 insightful answers in an easy-to-implement format. We had two guiding principles for the book:
1) Great advice – no lectures
2) Great advice from the front lines of life. Real people willing to share their advice and life experiences to help others.
In many ways, we are today’s Modern Family’s modern family. We have dealt with family issues like single parenting, divorce, relatives’ non-acceptance of bi-racial children, gay issues, money concerns, significant health issues and more. Along the way, we received great advice when we needed it most – often from an unusual source. Now, we want to help others during stressful times.
Empowered Women Helping Others was written as a self-help book with journaling, but it can also be used in group settings. You are a WINNER!
The book includes:
- 250+ easy-to-implement tips on self-esteem, raising kids, working, single parenting, dealing with midlife issues, overcoming obstacles, stress management, reducing fear and much
- Top 10 Roadblocks to Your Success
- Two “You’re Not Alone” sections
- Two Great Questions to Ask Yourself Everyday
- 10 Rules About Money
- 10 Ways to Prepare for Success
- Multiple areas for personal reflection and journaling
Too often books to help people are 300 pages long and written by a famous person with lots of money and time. In today’s rapid-paced world, how many of us have the time to read 300 pages, and only get 2 – 5 pieces of actionable advice about issues important to us. For example: divorce, single parenting, raising teenagers, dealing with stress, and money concerns. The Empowered Women Helping Others book is different. It is a collection of real world advice from the front lines of life. The reader can quickly find important ideas to help them and take action immediately.
The second Empowered Women Helping Others book is scheduled for publication July 2021, and we need your help. We’re looking for advice, life lessons and helpful ideas. Possible subjects (i.e., career, single parenting, money, stress management, healthy living, parenting teens, divorce, etc.) NOTE: If we use your ideas, we’ll send you a free copy of the new book.
Do you have some advice you want to share to help others?
You can have everything in life that you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.
Aiysha S., quote from motivational speaker Zig Ziglar
I called home feeling lonely. My mom said, “no one will knock on your door when they don’t where you live.”

Be careful. The knife you stick in someone’s back today, may be attached to your new boss tomorrow.

Two Great Questions
Ben Franklin was the 15th child of a poor family and had only three years of formal training. Yet, he overcame many potential obstacles to forge a successful life for himself and contribute to his country. During his 84 years he became an author, publisher, inventor of the lightning rod and the Franklin stove, one of America’s Founding Fathers, signed the Declaration of Independence, and was the United States Ambassador to France. Mr. Franklin was a lifelong learner who taught himself five languages and could play several musical instruments.
Ben Franklin lived a rich and full life by developing some strong personal character traits. For example: Two Great Questions
- When he started the day he asked, “What good will I do today?
- Before bed he asked, “What good did I do today?”
How would your life change if you used those questions each day?
How would your life change if you daily started asking these two questions?
Look at Yourself in the Mirror
If you can’t get up in the morning and look at yourself in the mirror, smile and say “I’m glad to be going to work today” it’s time to find a new job!

Two Life Questions
What do you want out of life, and how hard are you willing to work to get it?
Who Gets Credit
It’s amazing what you can achieve when you let go of your ego. Don’t let your ego get in the way of a good decision.
The 5 scariest words in the English language are: yes, I can, and I will. Why? Because as soon as you say them you have made a commitment.
- Yes, I will help at the church fish fry on Saturday.
- Yes, I can make the decorations for the wedding.
- I will take that new
Depending on your level of commitment, these five words can also be you’re “I’ll Make It Happen” words.
