Still I Rise

Celebrating Women

Great Women Leaders in History Who Personify Girl Power

“If you need a little encouragement in your life during these difficult times, the lives of these women will give you hope.” —Says Me Says Mom

#1 Bestseller in 21st Century U.S. History for Teens

Intrepid women heroes are the antithesis of the traditional damsels in distress; rather than waiting for the prince, they took salvation into their own hands.

Rad Women Worldwide. “When Nelson Mandela was imprisoned in South Africa’s brutal Robben Prison, he tirelessly turned to the poem Invictus. Invictus, the inspirational verse by the Victorian William Ernest Henley, was penned on the occasion of the amputation of his leg. Still I Rise takes its title from a work by Maya Angelou and it resonates with the same spirit of an unconquerable soul, a woman who is captain of her fate. Just as Invictus brought solace to generations, so does Maya Angelou’s contemporary classic.” —The Library Blog

Celebrate girl power. Still I Rise embodies the strength of character of inspiring women. Each chapter outlines the fall and rise of great women heroes who shattered all obstacles, rather than let those obstacles shatter them.

Women sheroes include:

  • Madame C. J. Walker - first female American millionaire
  • Aung San Suu Kyi - Burma’s first lady of freedom
  • Betty Shabazz - civil rights activist
  • Nellie Sachs - Holocaust survivor and Nobel Prize recipient
  • Selma Lagerlof - first woman Nobel Laureate
  • Fannie Lou Hamer - American voting rights activist
  • Bessie Coleman - first African American female pilot
  • Wilma Rudolph - first woman to win three gold medals
  • Sonia Sotomayor - first Hispanic Supreme Court justice
  • Wangari Maathai - Nobel Prize winner
  • Winnifred Mandela - freedom fighter
  • Lois Wilson - founder of Al-Anon
  • Roxanne Quimby - co-founder of Burt’s Bees

Banish Your Inner Critic

Celebrating and Empowering Black Lives and Black Authors

Silence the Voice of Self Doubt

Banish Your Inner Critic provides knowledge, insight, tools and practice for getting unstuck and expressing full creative potential." ―Rebecca Stockley, Co-Founder of BATS Improv in San Francisco CA

Are you ready to boost your personal productivity—minus the fear and loathing? Are you ready to Banish Your Inner Critic and unleash the creative ideas and personal productivity within you? Help is on the way!

Blocked creative ideas. Everybody has one, an inner critic that tells you that others have more talent, you’re just faking it, and that you’ll never have those great creative ideas that seem just out of reach. This inner critic is a subconscious deterrent that stands between the seeds of great creative ideas and the fruits of achievement. It afflicts us with a mental block as deadlines approach, makes us so afraid of being judged that we hold ourselves back and don’t share our expertise, forces us to question our ability to learn ideas and technologies quickly; and makes us doubt, discount, and kill our ideas before they see the light of day.

Find a world of creative ideas. Denise Jacobs is a speaker, author and creativity evangelist who speaks at web conferences and consults with tech companies worldwide. As the Founder and Chief Creativity Evangelist of "The Creative Dose", she teaches techniques to make the creative process more fluid, how to make work environments more conducive to personal productivity, and practices for sparking innovation. Now, in Banish Your Inner Critic, Denise Jacobs shows you how to defeat barriers that are holding you back and achieve success through a positive mental attitude.

Banish Your Inner Critic and:

  • Identify and quiet the voice of self-doubt
  • Master three powerful practices to transform how you relate to yourself and your creativity
  • Generate more creative ideas than ever before

If you’re a fan of books such as The Artist’s Way or The War of Art, you should read Banish Your Inner Critic.

Optimum Drive

Don't Just Be Good ─ You Can Be Great!

Optimum Drive is the complete step-by-step guide to maximizing human performance in any endeavor you choose to conquer

Attaining peak performance. Optimum Drive is a motivational book that uses top level race car driving as a metaphor for peak performance. As a professional racing driver and a driving coach for over 20 years, author Paul F. Gerrard gives you his unique perspective on what causes people to stagnate with the idea of being merely good, when each of us has the potential to be great. Gerrard believes that peak performance is within our grasp. He lays out his step-by-step process for attaining peak performance with detailed nuance threaded throughout. If you have ever been curious about maximizing your own ultimate potential, Optimum Drive is for you!

Mental toughness. Greatness is as hard to quantify as it is to achieve…probably not a coincidence. In this book, Optimum Drive, professional driver Gerrard helps you understand the mental toughness that it takes to reach that greatness. He starts off by taking you onto the track as he explores what driving at 200 mph can teach us about who we are. Using his experiences from behind the wheel at death-defying speeds, Gerrard breaks down the psychology of driving, what it takes, and how we can use it to achieve greatness in life.

Flow psychology and staying in the zone. The key to the mental toughness that Gerrard believes it takes to achieve peak performance is the nirvana-like sensation of flow psychology or being in the zone. Flow psychology, or being in the zone, is a mental state in which one who is performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and joy. It is through flow psychology that Gerrard introduces a blend of holistic mindset combined with a competitive edge, which is essential to successful professional driving. This mix of guts, tenacity and endurance is the foundation of Gerrard’s philosophy for attaining greatness.

Why you should read Optimum Drive

  • This book is not just about learning how to drive race cars. Use it for anything.
  • Auto Racing (by far the richest sport in the world) has invested more money evaluating human performance than any other sport.
  • Optimum Drive is a step-by-step guide to unlock your hidden potential.
  • Former Top Gear US Stig, Paul F. Gerrard has taught and refined his principles for over 20 years with thousands of successful students.
