Parnassus Books is thrilled to welcome Gay Gaddis as she discusses and signs Cowgirl Power.
As the owner of one of the largest woman-owned advertising agencies in the US, Gay Gaddis knows a thing or two about empowerment. Gay’s insights are rooted in the spirited strength of the real cowgirl heroines of the 1920s and ’30s—gutsy risk-takers in everything they did. In Cowgirl Power, these cowgirls are celebrated as a metaphor for the power we all have to achieve far more than we think.
Whether your goal is to start a family, own a business, advance your career, organize community outreach, or run for office, it all comes down to power: knowing how to develop it and not being afraid to take it when it comes your way.
Gay’s book and Cowgirl Power Toolkit draw on a life’s lessons to blaze a path to success, on your terms:
· Taking responsibility for yourself
· Building your own competence
· Finding your assertiveness
· Designing your own life
· Building a kick-ass culture
· Recognizing good ideas
· Becoming a fearless leader
Cowgirl Power is not about changing you. You are just fine. It’s about understanding your strengths, building on them, and unlocking your power to kick ass—your way.
