"We've all met that person who walks it, talks it, and makes the whole world believe it.  It isn't about the size of their hips or their bank account balance. It comes from a deep sense of self which exudes through every pore in the body. Sexy is an attitude . . . not an aptitude! The Real Sexy Smart and Strong will show you how to access your own innate sexiness and before you know you, too, will be inspired and filled with this magical power!"
—Crystal Andrus bestselling author of Simply . . . Woman!
