Come along with Olympic skier, amputee, and bestselling author, Bonnie St. John, and her teenage daughter, Darcy Deane, on an incredible mother-daughter adventure into the lives of some of the most fascinating women shaping our world today. You’ll go behind the scenes at Facebook headquarters, inside the State Department in Washington, down the red carpet of a Hollywood movie premiere with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, into a home-spun tortilla factory in Nicaragua, backstage at The Jon Stewart Show, mingling with athletes at the Paralympic Winter Games, shopping in London, into the cockpit of super-sonic fighter jets, and through many other exotic and exciting locations. In each rich, heart-to-heart visit with these amazing female role models, you will feel their warmth, absorb their wisdom, and experience what it’s like to walk in their shoes. Once you take this rare and unique opportunity to visit with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, Movie Star Geena Davis, Condoleezza Rice, a fashion designer, a fighter pilot, a dynamic stay-at-home mother of five, and many more—you’ll forever feel like an insider in this elite club of extraordinary leaders. Long after this sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, but always entertaining journey ends, the life lessons, the laughter, and the honest vulnerability of these women will stay with you, equip you to embrace your own leadership potential, and perhaps even inspire you to guide others along the way to greatness.
