What do well known, Old West cowgirls Annie Oakley, Prairie Rose Henderson, Fox Hastings, and Bonnie McCarroll have in common? They were all successful career women with habits that can be adopted by today’s professionals.
Think Tank CEO Gay Gaddis’ book Cowgirl Power: How to Kick Ass in Business and Life uses the work ethic exemplified in the most accomplished equestrians in history to demonstrate a pattern anyone can adopt to become a strong leader.
With chapters like “Cowgirls Build Their Own Competence,” “Cowgirls Design Their Own Life,” and “Cowgirls Know a Good Idea When They See One,” readers will learn how to acquire, develop, and manage the power needed to open a business, start a family, or run a corporation.
Cowgirl Power is an inspiring read. Knowing how to ride high in the saddle, embrace risks, and build your own brand are just a few tools offered to become fearless in whatever life endeavor is pursued. Gaddis’ approach to achievement is fresh and compelling. Readers will want to ride out into the arena and take on any challenge. Armed with the Cowgirl Power Tool Kit at the conclusion of the book, daring women will be able to start their journey.
Cowgirl Power is just plain fun and the lessons taught have life-changing potential.
