How would you feel if suddenly your life fell apart? What if you found yourself in prison, divorced, seriously ill, bankrupt, disabled, alone, addicted or any one of many other unthinkable disasters? Well, that is exactly the kind of challenge that each of the 25 incredible women included in this unique anthology faced. And it is from such dilemmas of life-changing proportions, from such Turning Points, that each of these women stopped, took stock and decided to turn their lives around. It is through their candid stories that they share details of their lowest moments and their eventual incredible achievements. Perhaps, more importantly, they provide practical advice, comprehensive resources, connections and ideas as well as countless valuable giveaways and free consultations. The women featured here are phenomenal - or are they? In fact, many are just like you and I and simply decided to grab life by the throat and turn it around, once and for all, for the better. Now it is your chance to benefit from what they learned along the way. The authors also want to help others with their Turning Points and so 10% of the royalties from this book will go to Seeds for Development which is a small charity supporting the poorest people in Uganda. Its mission is to lift farmers out of poverty and support self-sustainability by providing risk free loans, in the form of agricultural inputs such as seed directly to the farmers. With contributions from Rachel Rofé and Frederique Murphy and forewords by Kay White and Joyce OBrien
