Follow The Leader By Stephanie
Do not be the woman who sits and watches things get done; be the woman that gets things done!
Life, as we know it, has almost always been dominated by men, especially in politics. Even though in recent times women have been given more opportunities to contest and achieve the highest post, there is still a sort of “unstated” distrust toward women. However, women are constantly proving many of society’s outdated and untrue assumptions and stereotypes wrong.
Women have what it takes to lead and to lead well. We have the power to stand up to all of the political turmoil that is sweeping through our country and help change laws and public policies in a way that has never been done before. Women are making their marks, making a difference, and leaving their footprints in the sands of time.
This is exactly what I am striving to do. I have always had a passion for politics and, after a 20-year career in politics, have become one of Washington’s most sought after advisors and strategists.
Originally from Gainesville, Florida, I graduated from Harvard and later became the the General Counsel to U.S. Senator Bill Nelson of Florida. I have been recognized for my contributions to the legal field, garnering the Black Women Lawyers Rock Award, as well as recognized by Loop 21/Impact DC as one of the 40 Under 40 Most Influential in Capitol Hill. My political commentary can be heard on numerous outlets including The Hill, Sirius XM Radio, and One America News Network. Currently, I am the CEO of the elite political consulting company, Mickle Public Affairs Agency.
My book, Follow the Leader: Believe in Yourself. Craft Your Future, was written to empower and motivate women to get involved in the political process. All it takes is confidence from a leader who genuinely cares and understands why women hold back.
In my book, I hope to help women learn:
Why it’s important for them to get involved in the political process.
Which topics are taboo.
How to close the gender gap.
How to let go of the superwoman syndrome.
Where women of color fit in.
How the divine influences women.
It is within us to reach out for our goals and aspirations and, if we can only believe, we can achieve it.
