With so many challenges faced today by high school and college graduates entering the job market post-pandemic, I hope that my ‘Playing for Keeps’ book and success tools can fast-track their careers using the power of examples. - Therese Allison, Mom, Mentor and Author of "Playing for Keeps"
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (PRWEB) June 07, 2021
In sync with the 2021 graduation season, Successful Businesswoman, Mom and Mentor Therese Allison announces that she is gifting her self-help memoir, “Playing for Keeps – How a 21st century businesswoman beat the boys” Kindle ebook version on Amazon starting today, Monday, June 7 – Wednesday, June 9, 2021. To help others, Allison openly shares her career success story with a proven strategy and tools for business and life. Her tips are based on becoming financially independent at age 38 when her company (McKenna & Associates) was sold to AON, and retiring early at 43 to spend quality time with her children.
Allison emphasizes, “With so many challenges faced today by high school and college graduates entering the job market post-pandemic, I hope that my ‘Playing for Keeps’ book and success tools can fast-track their careers using the power of examples.”
Growing up in humble means, Allison learned how to “win” by playing competitive sports in high school. By being fearless in the predominately man’s world of insurance brokerage, Allison met sales goals for 20 years, closed multi-million dollar deals and broke the glass ceiling. Using her unstoppable formula, Allison became the first female producing Partner in an insurance brokerage company tied to Lloyd’s of London where for 300 years, women weren’t allowed on the underwriting floor.
By mentoring her children to succeed using the same tools, all three have learned how to “win” in life by playing sports (ice hockey, synchronized skating and volleyball) and using Allison’s “Pearls of Wisdom.” Graduates can also learn from how the author taught her children to be both sports and business champions.
During college, Allison’s son asked her to write down what contributed most to her career success. Drawing from her rough draft, he posted Allison’s “16 Pearls of Wisdom” above his desk while attending UCLA. And at age 27, he became one of the youngest Principals for a multi-billion corporation headquartered in New York.
To help the class of 2021, their families and loved ones thrive, Allison outlines how to win in business and life in “Playing for Keeps”, including:
- 16 “Pearls of Wisdom” – How to build allies, close deals and gain confidence.
- “Velvet Glove for Women” – How women can be “feminine but firm” and “funny but smart” in a world where 85.8% of the Fortune 500 CEOs are men in 2020.
- “Lucy Moments” – How to use humor to build allies, diffuse big egos, and bounce back from failures using business insights from Hollywood Legend Lucille Ball.
- Synchronicity Power – How to combine manifestation with synchronicity to attract the right people and results at the right time (Allison covered this topic recently on the Healing Powers Podcast.)
And the best news is that Allison’s “Playing for Keeps” success strategy can help new graduates land their dream job:
- “After reading “Playing for Keeps”, I went through several rounds of interviews for two DA’s offices. Out of 100 applicants, I was fortunate to be offered both jobs. The whole time I was thinking about your tips to success, especially at times when I was the only female in the room.” – Kaitlin R.
And in a recent radio interview on Girls on the Air KVTA 1590 AM (ABC Radio Affiliate) on June 5, 2021, Allison shared, “Class of 2021, you have been through one of the most challenging years in U.S. history. You are graduating this year because you have the “I Can” attitude. When the pandemic came, you said “I Can” adapt, “I Can” get through this, and you did. Take that same approach into your next chapter and careers to make your dreams happen. Congratulations, you’ve got this!”
