"She's radiant, she's self-confident, and as far as her own life is concerned, Georgette is definitely the one in charge." "In 1990, her phone calls got returned faster than anyone else's on a very select list in Washington, DC." "Georgette doesn't even own a blue business suit: she prefers bright colors, feminine shapes, and red fingernails. A CEO who gets a kick out of making coffee for everyone at the conference table; she calls that reverse power." "She's a fatherless working-class girl from the Indiana steel belt who worked her way up from ironing at the local country club to become a successful entrepreneur. Women all over the country write to her. And her husband is a very understated Texas oil magnate and ex-Cabinet Secretary who cherishes her and her career." "So how did she do it? She credits her Feminine Force. With this collection of practical principles, distilled from her own varied life experience and from the thousands of women - of all ages, backgrounds, and points of view - she's met as the CEO of La Prairie Cosmetics and of her new company, Exclusives by Georgette Mosbacher, she shows not only how she did it, but how you can do it, too." "Join Georgette as she tells you what she learned as a child taking care of her three younger siblings while her mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother worked. Hear what she learned about love and self-esteem through two failed marriages ("Just because you made a mistake doesn't mean you are a mistake"), and how she persevered to meet and marry a good man." "Want to be accepted by the "old boys" network - without sacrificing your femininity? Want to be financially independent and loved? Want to reinvent yourself, and learn how to turn the negatives in your life into positives? Just ask Georgette." "To guide and inspire you to create the life you deserve, Georgette has created 72 Feminine Force Principles that you can use to empower your own life, including I achieve success by not accepting failure; when I look my personal best, I am powerful; I will not love a man who does not cherish me; entrusting my financial security to anyone else is an unacceptable risk; and regardless of the difficulties of my life, I will never become a victim."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
