Advance Praise for
Women and Confidence
“Imagine realizing that there is nothing to do to access your confidence and ease in life. Imagine discovering the Intelligence behind all life is within you and can guide you gracefully through life’s ups and downs. Through their personal sharing, Lana Bastianutti and Linda Ford uncover the misunderstandings that many of us innocently carry around and take to heart. Imagine not taking your personal thinking, where these misunderstandings reside, so seriously and allowing your own deep knowing to surface and thrive. Women and Confidence explains a new understanding of the way humans operate that naturally relaxes our insecurities and lets our true nature shine forth. Read this book like you’re listening to music, not studying to improve yourself, and you will find your life is lighter and has more clarity. Imagine that!”
