To be successful, women business owners need to discover their Core, make decisions according to those priorities, and learn how to integrate their multiple roles. Based on her new book, Women Driven to Success: You Can Have It YOUR All, Dr. Jane Goldner will show you how to stop trying to be everything-to-everybody, uncover what is really important to you, and learn how to get YOUR All.
