What if what's holding you back isn't "you"?

This book is a love letter to the world-changing mission-driven women business owners, the "mothers of movements," who can't seem to break out of self-sabotaging thoughts, habits, and behaviorsEven though their business "seems" successful to others on the outside.

Who are "doing the inner work," but their inner critic is cruel and unrelenting.

And for those who want to fully enjoy and embody their well-earned success and influence and wealth. 

Sound familiar? Then this book is for you.

“I enjoyed not only reading the theory but loved the success stories and the practical tools given here can start anyone on their way to “jailbreak” and thriving. I Highly recommend this book.

— S Robinson, Amazon Reviewer

This isn’t another self-help book about fixing yourself.

It's not YOU that needs to be "fixed"!

Over and over again I hear from POWERFUL women business owners, especially those who are on a mission to transform the world, that they get stuck. They hit a personal glass ceiling—an invisible inner barrier—on their own happiness and fulfillment.

That no matter how much they try, no matter how many courses they take or mindset work they do or mentors they work with, they are not breaking through to the ultimate success they know they deserve.

They aren't happy. They aren't fulfilled. Even though it "seems" like they should be (or at least that's what we're told!).

I'm here to tell you that it's not you. It's Patriarchy Stress Disorder. And it's holding you back from you happiness, fulfillment, and success in business and life. It's holding you back from what you deserve.

This book will help you uncover:

  • Why you’re dissatisfied in spite of your achievements... and why it’s not your fault. 
  • ​What could be secretly draining 90% of your time and energy, and how to reclaim it.
  • All the ways you're still paying a mental price of exhaustion, anxiety, and feelings of worthlessness, even though your mission-driven business is successful and changing lives.
  • ​And most importantly, how to upgrade your game of “How much can I bear?” to “How good can it get?”

What is
Patriarchy Stress Disorder?

For millennia, women have been oppressed. Oppression is traumatic. Trauma is genetically transmitted. I termed my discovery of this collective inherited trauma, Patriarchy Stress Disorder®, or PSD for short.

Scientific research studies illustrate how PSD is created and passed down: Researchers introduced the smell of cherry blossoms to mice while simultaneously zapping their feet with mild electric shocks. The mice were then bred, and their children and grandchildren, when exposed to the smell of cherry blossoms, showed a strong fear and anxiety reaction. Let that sink in.

PSD is women fearing the smell of cherry blossoms. Our “cherry blossoms” are everything that we authentically desire that has historically been prohibited and punishable for women under patriarchy—unapologetically expressing our brilliance and sexuality, knowing our desires and going after them, loving who we love, being wealthy, visible, and powerful..

So my sister, I’m so glad that our paths have crossed, because I’m going to be sharing with you exactly how to recognize and heal from PSD so you can reclaim and live in the fullness of your authentic self. So that you can enjoy the cherry blossoms.
