Everyone has a “book inside of them.” But few actually publish one, let alone two or three. But what is it like when four women set a goal to publish a book together? Fun, frenetic and frightening at the same time. 

That’s a good way to describe the journey that Michelle Porchia (Trumbull, Connecticut), Debra Gould (New Orleans), Nancy Lewis (Atlanta) and I had in crafting our book: Real Women Real Issues: Positive Collaborations For Business Success. And Michelle and Debra join me on today’s show to discuss the value of collaborative partnerships in an ever changing and competitive world.

The book is more than a business book. It’s explores the intersection of friendship, faith and collaboration between African American women who dare to dream.  From meeting each other more than 15 years ago at a National Speakers Association conference to forming our mastermind group, The Ebony Speakers in 2007, we’ve shared our joys and tragedies with each other, and now in our new book.

Listen to this interview and share it with others who dare to dream. It demonstrates how women who live in different parts of the country can support each other, outreach to the marketplace while achieving personal and professional success.
