“The choices I have made got me to this gun to my head...ergo....the consequences are all mine,” author Linda Samis says. No luck or fate had anything to do with it. Fresh, utterly straight forward, no excuses; talk is over, time to grow a pair.

On a sunny morning in 1997, Samis stood on the driveway of her soon-to-be foreclosed home and realized she needed to grow a pair of brass ovaries. She is unapologetic, and here she comes at the readers like a bullet train.

The straight talking ‘spit-in-your-hand-and-shake’ approach as an entrepreneur has opened doors for Samis where most people have not found the hallway, or even the building. When her bottled water company was first getting legs, Samis discovered the Trump Organization was also expanding into water. She dialed 4-1-1 for the number and met The Donald within weeks; a meeting that is not out of luck but of perseverance and the knack for business management.

As the stories of her roller coaster ride with life continues within the pages of her book, Samis reiterates, “First of all I want to say up front, these are my opinions based on what I’ve seen. When women are good the world is good. And right now we’re not good. Women! Boomers! Entrepreneurs! Everybody! I’m here to punch you in the face! Ya! Right where you keep your eyes! We need a few words banned from the lexicon - deserve, try, perfect, luck - when you’re finished reading this book, you won’t need them anymore! When you have fully grasped that your choices are yours, and so are the consequences, that’s when you’ve earned your “Brass Ovaries”.
