Fast Forward: How Women Can Achieve Power and Purpose


Fast Forward, by two women leaders with experience and access throughout corporate America and around the world, takes the next step. Through interviews with a network of over fifty trailblazing women, it shows women how to accelerate their growing economic power and combine it with purpose to create success and meaning in their lives while building a better world.

Coleen Marlo narrates with the self-assured tone required for an audiobook that aims to empower women to change the world with their talents and energy. With her appealing, always comprehensible phrasing, she has a wonderful range of intensity. She empathizes convincingly with the true stories used to illustrate the book's message: Women have tremendous power to create good, and, with increasing economic power and public awareness of their skills, they are paving the way for more women to overcome obstacles and become change agents. The women interviewed by the authors are mostly high-functioning executives and entrepreneurs, almost all still challenged by negative biases in lending and investing practices. But for women anywhere on the occupational or financial spectrums, these are stories that will keep their inner fires bright and move them forward with their lives and projects.
