WOMEN Gone Wild: The Feminine Guide To Fearless Living launched to acclaim at Barnes and Noble in Huntington Beach, California, with a gathering of authors and supporters attending the book signing event and later a red carpet extravaganza in their honor.
The book is the first edition in a four-part series covering Wealth, Intuition, Leadership and Diversity (W.I.L.D) published by Rhonda Swan of the Unstoppable Branding Agency.
Said Rhonda, a five-times best selling author, CEO and advocate for women empowerment: “Anyone reading this book will be moved by the transparency of the shared experiences and inspired by the vulnerability of the writers. I like to describe this edition as a Chicken Soup For The Soul-type book focussed on female empowerment.
The Wealth Edition is about redefining wealth in every area of life, says Swan, and showing women the power of connection and collaboration by sharing stories designed to support each other.
“Women Gone Wild is a safe space for women to share their WILD stories and what they have been through to get to where they are today,” she added. “These are stories of triumph, failure and ultimately inspiration.”
Swan and her authors partnered with the founder of She Talks, Julie Ducharme and Combat Boots To High Heels [501c charity] supporting women veterans, for their official book launch and red carpet event, which featured a host of high-profile female figures, celebrities, renowned authors and inspirational speakers.
The events included book signings and entertainment from American Idol’s Jessica Meuse.
