Get Over “I Got It” by Elayne Fluker | She’s Giving You the Read and Talking di Tings!
March 18 at 12pm
Trey Anthony is excited to interview the amazing Author and podcaster Elayne Fluker, who is author of Get Over “I Got it!”: How to Stop Playing Superwoman, Get Support, and Remember that Having It All Doesn’t Mean Doing It All Alone.
Today’s women are ambitious and excelling in every way. But many still believe that asking for help along the journey is a sign of weakness, ignorance or incompetence, so they go it alone.
Author and podcaster Elayne Fluker believes this mindset is partially responsible for the increase in suicide rates for girls and women and the reason so many women end up depressed, overwhelmed, isolated and unfulfilled. Join Trey and Elayne as they discuss Elayne’s new book and give valuable tips on how women can get the support that they need in their lives. Fluker’s book offers women help, giving them a surefire strategy – and the confidence – to seek support. They’ll then be positioned to join other women’s support networks, uplifting them in a way that will transform both individual lives and communities.
