When Chanda Mitchell told me that she was going to write a book on the 90% that women are missing out on from men, I was intrigued by the title, “What About the Other 90%?” I thought the title was extremely thought provoking and the question needed to be asked and addressed and answered and not by a man but by another woman who’s been living it out in real time.
In our society we desperately need women authors to rise up and speak to the heart of where their readers live through every day and bring answers to the table that make sense.
Ms. Mitchell was a welcoming addition to my media team during my re-election campaign for Longview City Council. Most recently she assisted me with interviews with a local television station, which went incredibly well.
Awesome program! They really helped me with business ideas and even gained business for me. Great experience with Momentum Builders, LLC..
