Life coach McMeekin follows up her 2000 release The 12 Secrets of Highly Creative Women with this updated program. Much of the content replicates other self-help books for women: think big, lose the fear, gain self-confidence. Worksheets and journaling exercises are key components of this work, making for a poor transition to the audio format. -VERDICT Susan Boyce's narration appropriately conveys a professional, successful woman. This title is of limited interest but may appeal to creative women seeking to take the next step in their businesses.
