Ladies, if you're only able to read one book this year, make it Cynthia James’ I Choose Me. As I turned the pages of this well written and uplifting book, I felt like I was sitting with a close friend as she gives sage advice and straight talk about those key areas of pain and happiness in my life, from healing through honesty in relationships and marriage, confronting myths and inner demons about money, business and finance, while understanding the importance of “choosing me.”

In I Choose Me, author Cynthia James speaks honestly about those “dark nights” and critical places in every woman’s life. She writes with a strong, confident voice about finding strength and healing in those transformational moments in her own life, and shares how she discovered in some of life's pivotal moments places where her deepest truths were melded, tempered, and strengthened into her most powerful gifts and strengths.

In I Choose Me, author Cynthia James stands with us in those big, scary transformational moments and offers us hope and clarity. Moments like finding your voice in the midst of a divorce, healing generations of poverty and creating wealth, being a women in business while reclaiming passion, love, and happiness in our lives. All along the way, sharing her powerful insights and revelations with us and offering specific, actionable steps that help us break through to our next level of success and happiness.

I Choose Me by Cynthia James is an affirmation of the power of women to create, overcome, and rise ... not in spite of, but because they are women embracing their feminine power and deepest heart truths.
