Permission to Roar
Too often, women question their expertise, dim their light, or don’t feel worthy of writing a book that highlights their ideas and talents. But by learning to harness your inner brilliance and organize your ideas, you can own the title, thought leader, and write that magic-filled book that can change your corner of the world. Permission to Roar is part inspiration, part practical, hands-on tools, and part kick-ass knowledge. This book will wrap its arms around you and help you to unlock the words that have been longing to be expressed.
Marni has a clear call to action: The time has come to stop shrinking and start shining. We need your voice, and we need it right now to help shape, heal, and shake up the conversation. Yes YOU, yes NOW.
