Dancing Round the Handbags(r) is a more than a self-development book for hard-working women. It is a catalyst for balancing the way we work and live. Using the metaphor of the 'handbag' and the 'dance', it supports you to create clarity about dancing to your own tunes whilst maintaining balance between work and life. The Dance is a metaphor for what women do each day; dance to the tunes of others. The multiple roles of mother, wife, boss, friend, daughter, lover, cook, and colleague, means that a woman sometimes dances to too many tunes all at once, resulting in little time to explore her own music. The handbag in this book is a metaphor for being a woman and each item in the handbag represents a different facet of who she is. In this life-changing book, Lynne stops the music for a while, removes you from the dancefloor of life, opens up the handbag that is you, and encourages you to explore your potential and balance. By the end you will have de-cluttered, re-packed and renewed the handbag that is you, and be ready to step back onto the dancefloor of life to at last dance to your own music.
