The Strong Woman Trap
Are you the one who saves the day at work? Does your family expect you to do it all when you get home? Perhaps you used to like being thought of as reliable, but you long for a life of your own again—one with fewer emergency circumstances and people who need lots of "help."
It isn't just you. Lots of women have been socialized to quietly pick up the slack and not complain—this is a set-up for isolation, second guessing, and waiting for rewards that never come.
The Strong Woman Trap takes a hard look at the cultural beliefs that set strong, driven, ambitious women up for a life spent constantly saving others from themselves, filling in gaps, and going it alone like a hybrid of Wonder Woman and Working Girl.
We are playing too hard at a rigged game that we didn't create. We spend our energies managing demands and treat our own emotions and needs as irrelevant.
This book is for the women who spend their spare moments looking wistfully through magazines telling themselves their dreams are just one more personal sacrifice away.
If you read Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg and wondered just how much farther you had to lean, this book is for you.
Wishes won’t get you there. Neither will doubling down on old strategies.
What will get you there is learning the secrets to escaping The Strong Woman Trap.

Agile!: The Half-Assed Guide To Creating Anything You Want From Scratch. No Experts Required!
This book won't show you how to do anything. Too many books (and experts and gurus and infomercials) do that already. You also have probably checked them out and found -- for one reason or another -- these processes, programs and ""step by step ladders to guaranteed success"" don't work for you.
This is a guide for people who hate to be told what to do, and who want to lead their own learning process and be their own expert. People who want to get epic shit done need to be skilled in telling the difference between what works and what doesn't (and have the stones to move on when everything blows up).
If you are looking for approval, this book isn't for you. This is a book for people who want to do AWESOME things on their own terms, because it's RAD.
