This book journey has been a process filled with ups and downs, twists and turns. I made a few mistakes, learned some valuable lessons and gained lots of wisdom through the experience. It was on my heart to write a book, packed with empowering ideas, principles, tips and tools to help the girls of the world step into their greatness, build self-esteem, cultivate genuine self-love within and shine. When girls and women know their value and worth, they’re unstoppable. First and foremost though, I had to write this book for me, to honor the desire to express in this particular way. It was a thrill to complete ITGIRL4LIFE and get it out into the world. Thanks to all who supported this book and to the judges who voted, as well as those who purchased the book and continue to help spread this message.
An ITGIRL4LIFE loves herself, is authentic, takes charge and makes a difference. She has IT. IT is the greatness she was born with.
Big love and hugs to the fabulous IT GIRLS and those that love them<3
