Stop Underestimating Yourself.
You are capable of far more than you know.

The most successful women are often not the most talented, the most gifted, or even the most experienced. What these women have is a knack for communicating that opens doors and gives them influence.

Gleaning from powerful research, bestselling author and life strategist Valorie Burton unearths practical insights you can put to work in your life immediately. Scientific studies are proving what the ancient wisdom of Scripture has shown all along: The power of life and death lies in the very words you speak. Let Valorie teach you how to...

  • recognize the nuances in speech that can mean the difference between success and failure
  • increase your influence by changing what you think and say in critical moments
  • speak accurately about yourself so you don't sabotage your most meaningful goals
  • boost your confidence by making simple tweaks to your everyday speech

Your words are powerful tools. It's time to use them to build the life you really want.

Don’t be fooled- this is not just another self-help book that requires you to become more like someone else to find meaning and success. Nestled under the cover of Valorie Burton’s latest book Successful Women Speak Differently is a potent arsenal of insights and tools that exceeds its promise of building your confidence, courage and influence to potentially transforming your authentic voice and life success. Building off of her masterful coaching expertise, Valorie offers 9 critical habits for success such as “Ask for What You Want”, “Learn to Flip the Script” and “Don’t Just Speak Positively, Speak Accurately” with in-depth, research-based yet relevant recommendations to integrate these habits right now in your life. The book is a “Swiss army knife” that cuts through the confusing internal, societal and gendered noise that keeps so many talented women settling, silent, stuck and sorry for it. Instead, Valorie heralds a call out to women of all ages, to elevate and own their voice – whether it is manifested in their thoughts, verbal, non-verbal, electronic communication and offers powerful strategies and practical skills not taught in school or in the workplace. Valorie drops sound nuggets of advice, enlivens them with case studies, compelling relatable and personal stories, coaching prompts, and beckons the reader to do this important work for themselves and ultimately, to close the gap between their abilities and possibilities. Make no mistake, you will be challenged as she speaks the truth in love on the pages and changed for the better as she catalyzes growth in her signature style- the trusted voice of wisdom in the warmth of an invested coach and friend. Successful Women Speak Differently: 9 Habits That Build Confidence, Courage and Influence is a must-read for anyone – and especially the women we love- mothers, daughters, wives, friends, sisters- who are tired of shrinking or of being passed over or in any area of life and who wants to show up more powerfully in the world. You will emerge armed and courageous to deal with whatever you face, once and for all, and to connect more deeply with yourself and others. Regardless of season in life, this a rich resource for living that will align you to your highest and best self, a game-changer headed straight to the best-seller list!
