Today’s women are ambitious, and are 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 partly responsible for the increase in suicide rates for girls and women, and the reason so many women end up depressed, overwhelmed, isolated and unfulfilled. To combat this alarming trend, Fluker helps women learn how to build their own networks, make meaningful connections, and understand how some of the world’s most successful women, like Oprah Winfrey and Spanx founder Sara Blakely, had tremendous support networks that helped them achieve their dreams.
