Champions Never Tell

Women need to take action and engage in self-care to save themselves, rather than suffer in toxic and hostile work environments.

Recently featured in Forbes - "Champions Never Tell," features seven highly successful women that share their stories and give women advice to take control of their work-life and circumstances.

  • 80% of women who are bullied lose their jobs. (Workplace Bullying Institute)
  • Two-thirds of workers who complained about mistreatment were retaliated against. (NY Times)
  • 70% of women sexually harassed at work don’t tell a superior about it. (EEOC)
  • The suicide rate for middle-aged women (45 to 64), increased 63% over the past 20 years. White middle-aged women increased 80%. The distress of jobs contributes to the increase. (NY Times)
  • 50% of book proceeds benefit Hurricane Relief efforts.

While women are waiting for their organizations to save them in hostile workplaces, they are suffering from PTSD, autoimmune diseases and committing suicide.
