Product Details


“The flow between riveting true stories and the lessons learned from them makes this book not only impossible to put down but a must-read for women at any age and any stage in their careers.”
—Sharon Jordan-Evans, executive coach and co-author of Love It, Don't Leave It: 26 Ways to Get What You Want at Work
“A great resource for any woman contemplating a career change that validates her self.  I especially liked the combination of the psychological thought processes along with the concrete steps to make the change.  The experiences of others who have been through it is very helpful as well.”
— Nancy Mark, former Director, Lotus Development, and former Senior Manager, IBM

“Kathy invites the reader to reveal what already lives inside…What makes Kathy’s book even more powerful is her willingness to share her personal experiences. Suddenly you feel as if you’re sitting on your living room couch with your best friend, feeling a bit more confident, and decidedly not alone in your journey.”
—Laurie Howlett, Vice President of the Board of Trustees, Westchester Exceptional Children’s School, and former Vice President of Marketing, Fortune Magazine Group

Breakdown, Breakthrough does what so many books promise and so few deliver.  It tackles a huge issue, recommends solutions, and then provides real, practical tools to get you from where you are today to your breakthrough.  Empathic, powerful, and inspiring.  Bravo.”
—Noah Blumenthal, author of You’re Addicted to You: Why It’s So Hard to Change—and What You Can Do About It
