After decades fighting to free themselves from male-dominated social and economic structures such as glass ceilings and pay equality, women still struggle. Using the events of a very painful year in her own personal and professional life, Allison Carmen explores the forces in women’s personal and professional lives that hold them back. She teaches how women can become fully realized so that every choice they make is not from fear but from strength. According to Allison, when women allow themselves to be who they truly are, when their own voices matter to them, they will succeed as parents, entrepreneurs, industry leaders, and innovators. Allison is a business consultant and life coach. Her new book is A Year Without Men.
