YNot Book

From the trauma of divorce and heartbreak, the emotional rollercoaster of IVF and chronic anxiety to childhood stress, illness, and depression, this is a book about women empowering women. When life sends us challenges, it takes a strong woman to stand up, face them head on and reclaim her power. The amazing women portrayed in this collection achieved this by asking themselves one simple question. YNot?

“Shar Moore’s Empowering Stories by Female Leaders who said YNot is one of the first books I have read that brings so many phenomenal women together in one book. It takes courage to say YNot and each one of these women has shown up, embraced opportunities and overcome challenges to arrive at an impressive destination, each different yet equally as significant. This book will inspire, educate and show readers that there is always an opportunity to embrace the joy of life when you live passionately through your purpose. Their heart-centred approach to business is a testament of each of their success stories.I highly recommend that you take the time to get to know each of the women featured in Empowering Stories by Female Leaders who said “YNot, they have come so far, and you can learn so much from each of them.”
– Amanda Gore, Award winning speaker and best-selling author

Lara Zelenka

She said to herself, YNot? Lara no longer wants to dance around the peripheries of other people’s successes on social media posts, wanting to be part of their journeys and or their successes. It is time to have a try at her own dream of inspiring women not to be crippled by fear of failure or fear of success.

Monetary value is worthless if you haven’t helped someone or achieved something you set out to achieve.

Juanita Smith

We are all walking around on programming! How we react to things, our morals, our values… are all a result of our past experiences and memories. Hypnosis can uplift stuff that has been dormant for a longtime, release it, heal it, and change that programming to something more desired. It’s a shortcut to change.

Robyn Ratcliff

I will work with you, encourage you, motivate you and kick your butt if I need to, so that you can be all that you want to be. If not now… when? Ynot? You have nothing to lose except the results that you don’t want.

Catherine Wood

My dream is to show that there is another world, one that makes so much sense. One that takes out the suffering and confusion and one that shows you how to heal yourself from the inside out and not rely on someone else to heal you.

Aldwyn Altuney

She discovered the power of the media to affect change in the community. Aldwyn relished the opportunity to share her voice on what she felt were injustices in the world and ways to help make it a better place. She wrote strong stories that made statements against duck shooting, battery farming of chickens, female circumcision and about the environment.

Ronnie Benbow

Seeing them transform in just three days is inspirational for all the team and life changing for the carers. To see the positive outcomes of their programs is all Ronnie needs to maintain her inspiration.

Tanya Southey

Tanya needed a project to keep her connected to words and to the thoughts that were spinning through her head. She’d recently left the corporate world and needed some discipline in her new world. Streetwise was born
