Finding Our Wings Summary:

Despair, excruciating emotional pain, and loss—and yet glorious triumph. After an initial failed attempt to bring this book to life at the hands of a self-proclaimed business coach, this group of entrepreneurs felt as if their wings had been clipped. But what to do? Once again they embraced the lessons contained in this book—stories of grit, determination, redemption, and joy—this group of seven women followed their burning desire to let their voices be heard and now share with you the book you hold in your hands. They have taken their personal tragedies and transformed them into fuel for takeoff—for their businesses and their lives. Like the mythical phoenix, each of these women has endured her own flames of destruction and yet found within them a rebirth of new identity and the strength to rise. They offer you this collection of stories as a reminder of the light within you to overcome the darkness and reclaim your power.
